Came across something disturbing...this might be income-driven censorship, the whole SJW & censorship thing was just a way for them to maximize their paycheck, this is just rumors, and no hard fact evidence yet -
First let us take a step back into the past to get some perspective -
Other information -
Yes, Nich Maragos, was a Patreon of Andrea Ritsu, some really toxic SJW on Tumblr which started the bullshit allegation that one of Soleil A rank conversation was "Gay conversion" (it isn't). Both him and Rich Amtower, which I believe is a head of localization, both publicly on their twitter, claim support for Zoe Quinn and Feminism
Also, while I'm there, another unrelated "classic" -
it's been revealed that some team members of Treehouse are patreon supporters of the fairly SJW bloggers who initially attacked the game for waifu sexism and whatnot. Treehouse's credential basically didn't exist before this, and now they're digging themselves into a hole through very questionable changes.
Commentator from Forbes -
Surprisingly it has more to do with money than expected for a lot of these minor and nonsensical changes. A friend who used to work in the industry says that they were paid for every change, so there was an incentive to change anything they could get away with.
Additionally the Soleil changes go a litter further than just that one support conversation. All her S-Rank conversations to become romantically involved with male characters were changed to friendship. So the localization changes a bisexual woman into a lesbian woman.
I don’t mind jokes being localized or anything like that, but don’t go changing the story just cause you can get a quick buck for it!
User from another site told me this -
This reminds me of the rumor that NoA purposely undershipped NES minis because the personnel in charge of selling the product got bonuses if they sold out their shipments, not maximizing sales.
None of this makes sense. And I can't stand how there's no accountability.
Now what to make of all this? This sounds like a income scheme going on in NoA, and they don't care how they do it. Now if all this is true then there definitely needs to be accountability because they're going against the consumer for their own personal gain, the whole SJW thing & censorship are simply tools for them to get what they want.
Now again if this is true, there needs to be some real hard evidence to start calling out NoA-Treehouse, and other localization teams for various companies if this what they have been doing this whole time. They're insulting real localizations & also Fan-Translations that work real hard to make a product as much presentable as possible, I think we can all agree we have enough problems with the ratings board, but also having to deal with this?
I don't know if you all caught on to this change, but changing Trunk's sword into a twig recently for Fusions is a big red sign that maybe there might be something to this.
Also to add another thing that the whole Income-driven censorship apparently was made aware as some rumor on /v/ few months ago on 4chan, I just happen to dig a little further on this subject, and was made aware of this from another user.
