MLP: Fighting is Magic got a cease and decist letter from Hasbro's legal team and had to shut down.

But wasn't the project almost finished, and if so there may be ways around that?
User avatar #5 to #4 - brianpalmer (02/09/2013) [-]
Yes, it was damn close to being released and I'm sure they'll try everything to get around the C&D, but the only way I see it happening is if one of the two people who quit Mane6 after hearing the news says ' **** it' and leakes what they have anyway or if by some miracle Hasbro is willing to give them a license to put out the game.

So much anticipation and effort gone to waste, such a shame to see it happen. Its not so much the shutdown in general so much as it was the timing of....having built up so much hype and effort into the project for them to act on it so close to release and fairly certain they had known about it for quite some time.

Yeah, I can't even imagine the frustration of having those hundreds of hours (or more) of work basically flushed down the toilet. I hope they at least get offers from other companies to make games. That team deserves it.

Indeed they do. To have so much effort and time wasted so close to a release is just a major disappointment.

Now if they were to do something against EQD, which I am fairly positive they will not do, then it will spark the greatest ********* of all time. Hasbro seems to be making the show nothing more than another use to sell toys, the exact opposite of the way it began. Again, 'tis a shame to see something which could have been great get turned into nothing more but a way to market items.

Hasbro are a confusing company.
You'd think they would cater to the bronies more than their expected demographic because we're the ones who're more likely to be able to buy much more merchandise than the children asking their parents.
I mean a child will get like 2-3 toys at best, whereas some bronies are willing to buy the entire collection of toys.
Yet they still cater mostly to the targeted demographic, which frankly I think is the right thing to do as its that writing style which actually drew us into it anyway, if they changed things just for us, it would take away from what is good.
However moves like this just seem stupid, especially since Fighting is Magic was going to be completely free and no money was to be made from it.

Well, the fighting is magic thing was another whole copyright deal, they really had no choice.
But though this may be a tragic, tragic event, at the end of the day, we gotta "brony on"
The fandom isn't dying, or being purposely killed by hasbro.
Bronies will do what we do best (aside from ************ ): watch the show, make more fan content. Hasbro can shut down big things like fighting is magic, but can never hit us in the heart of our fandom: the music, comics, animations and fics.

guys... i don't understand.... what's so bad about twilight turning into an alicorn?
User avatar #19 to #18 - pixy (02/09/2013) [-]
It's not supposed to happen so soon...everyone kindof expected it, but at the end of the show or something, not only 3 seasons in. Also, I think a lot of fans are worried it's going to cause a lot of problems in the future episodes. Personally, I'm on the fence about it.

One of the reasons I liked the show so much was because the "main" main character wasn't much more special than the other ponies. Now, it's going to be another "There's one super powerful main character and her gathering of friends who are special but not that special anymore.."

In a nutshell what's happened so far:
Derpy died
MLP Fighting is magic was sued
Everyone is crying while Hasbro licks our tears
User avatar #24 to #23 - CaptainPugwash (02/09/2013) [-]
I've heard a lot that Derpy died but why do people think that? Just because she hasn't been in a few episodes?
User avatar #25 to #24 - piecraft (02/09/2013) [-]
Shes been lessened and lessened and lessened then she was completely dropped
User avatar #26 to #25 - CaptainPugwash (02/09/2013) [-]
Has any official said that she won't be coming back?
User avatar #27 to #26 - piecraft (02/09/2013) [-]
Hopefully there will be
but not yet
The reason was because she was "offensive" to peeps with a mental disability :/
User avatar #31 to #27 - CaptainPugwash (02/10/2013) [-]
Yeah, I remember that, they rerecorded a whole scene in season 2, if I recall correctly. I can see where the complaints might be coming from but to drop Derpy altogether is a bit extreme IMHO. Thanks anyway.

interesting fact about the Fighting is Magic game, some animators from mlp fim (forgot who) said to them to change the characters to something non mlp so they can use the coding and still get the game going.
+1 for the animation team but the game is popular because of the characters :/

Good, kill the fandom more, destroy them
