Just to clarify I'm just curious This isn't meant to cause anything to anyone and i'm not looking for anything hostile one way or the other (people agreeing people disagreeing i just want history facts)

So I'm just gen curious about what happened back than. From what i've gathered people got abit tiffed when PTU came about. But was it really that bad?? Were there death threats or what?
Or did it just leave a few devs bitter?

It only striked my interested after I posted a couple of memes about the new PTU 2.0 (i don't like it much and made a joke. Which most enjoyed on other platforms and discords. I tend to go down my list of areas to post and post things in many platforms. But i guess the mods on this one discord server weren't having it) on a discord and was mobbed instantly for "intention of sparking conflict" And "We have no patience for the king of toxicity that plagued our community back in the first days of PTU." Were a few of the things stated at the joke. Very hostile like i made a joke about the holocaust or something ><; aye.

So If someone could fill me in so I understand that'd be awesome ^^.

Also What happened to "Mon"? He's credited with being one of the devs for PTU. But he's not credited in any of the other books And i haven't seen him around with the other Devs.

Also is there a homebrew discord around for PTU?? Cus kinda need another PTU discord server around? I'll prob ask that on another place if not. ^^

Oh lord, Discord drama is the last thing I want to hear about. Or Discord in general, to be honest. Memes are no joke out there.

PTU showed up when PTA was in a development lull, and the head developer was both hard to reach and not interested in making any drastic changes to the system whenever he was around. So the more active developers with their own ambitions asked if they could make their own spin off. That was fine with everyone so they did and that's where PTU came from. The last game I was in was around 1.04 and 1.05 so I haven't paid any attention to what's happened since then, my history is both dated and kind of fuzzy because years ago.

I played PTA for about a year before PTU appeared so I was around for all that. And I may be completely oblivious, but I don't remember there being too much drama during PTU's release. There were some criticism against its early versions, and some PTA players were stressing about how many were jumping ship onto the new system and how the playerbase for their preferred version was shrinking. I didn't like PTU at first for reasons I honestly can't remember well, but I do remember the issue being addressed in the next release. I don't know what happened in the IRC, I never went there and Discord wasn't around yet (Not obscure or anything, literally non-existent). So... yeah. I don't think there was much going on when PTU released apart from some general confusion about what this meant for PTA (nothing) and anxiety about what was going to happen to PTA's playerbase.

Ok thanks For the insight. ^__^ They talk about it as if it was really toxic and what not. :/ I can see some people being upset or giving them trash about it. But i guess it's just over reacting than on the matter. *shrugs*

I was under the impression by the way they talk that something big went down lol.
