I trust them not to pull this BS because it runs contrary to everything I know about them.
Like I said (and you essentially confirmed), "BHVR bad" is probably the main reason why people bought this hook, line, and sinker. And even if BHVR were to come out right now and say "this is fake", a lot of those people would still believe it, because it makes BHVR look bad.

To be honest I don't blame them (and this goes back to the whole faith thing) because of their past actions.
While I agree with you that it's fake, I can definitely see why people would have a harder time believing that.
The chatterer part only appears on their website, while the egmnow article doesn't have it. That makes it difficult for people for figuring out the information beeing fake than you think. Not everybody will take a close look on the website.
But I'm with you. Normally you don't comment false news/leaks/rumours.Not just Behaviour, I rarely see that happening with other companies as well. The only thing, which might be differently is here, that it might be even more, a scam targeting DbD players. And by my experience in cases like these companies tend to make a vage warning statement.
Still it's the weekend. Stuff takes time. Especially with something like this. The fact this is fake is spreading quite fast as well within the community. And it's still possible that it's only a fake.
Again, which part of "their past actions" would lend credence to this being real? You already said nothing is comparable to this false claim, so how does it follow from "their past actions" that this might be even remotely real?
You're twisting my words, I refuted your claim that I was "comparing" and instead said I was trying to help you understand why people would believe this BECAUSE of their past actions, I even listed examples of things they had done which would probably make people more inclined to believe the article immediately.

You're continuously missing the point I'm making, I'm saying because of their past actions, it is easily understandable why people might immediately believe this without seeing things rationally.
Feel free to try and understand where I'm coming from or continue debating about this, but I'm getting bored and I'm going to leave it here.
That's what I already said, though, that people were believing this because it feeds the "BHVR bad" narrative.
I still don't understand but understand sorta what NFTs are. So if im assuming i might be wrong, even tho BHVR partnered via contract or w/e. The NFT owners got to pull the voice lines? I'm confused
How about the fact that they say they're going to implement NFTs with books?
Sorry, but this is just obviously fake.
I hope so, in the Update it sounded like they were even open to giving Michael his largely asked for Stalking music back. They should just have the actor do the voice lines like they did with Ash
It's fake, there is no "hope" or "maybe". They claim that the only way to get the Chatterer is going to be by buying their Box of BS, but you can go to the in-game store right now and purchase it if you want.
That's so dumb lol
NFTs for physical assets like books are actually a thing. They are first and foremost meant to be a proof of ownership afterall.
Sorry, but looking at the reactions, how the information spread, it's not that obviously fake as you think. Maybe for you, for me etc. But not for everybody and the majority of people beeing confronted with information.
Don't they mean a chatterer NFT, not an outfit for pinhead in dbd?
I love how instead of saying whether or not this is true or not you just silence people's opinions that speak out against it lmaoo
That Tumblr post is really good.
Twenty years ago, when I was young and the internet was new, there was a dorky hobby some people had where you could join a mailing list and "claim" things from fandom that you liked. You didn't have to pay money -- you just had to be the first person to say, "I want to claim Xena's war cry," and then the moderator of the list would duly make a note that you had claimed Xena's war cry and it was yours. You didn't actually get anything, and, twenty minutes later, you forgot you ever participated.
Imagine my surprise that tech bros have now turned this dumb game into a way to swindle people out of millions of dollars.
From Boss Protocol's FAQ page:
That's all you say?
And there it is. Case solved
Ok, i'm too confused by all this, so i'm just gonna ask
Does this mean Pinhead's voice lines are coming back to DBD, yeah or no?
you guys didn't really have to do that to him.. like why didn't you just explain why it's wrong.. I'm actually kind of sad I liked Karu he doesn't deserve this. :(
Idk what is true and what isn't but I will say this: Saying NFTs or crypto in general are bad for the environment is ######### stupid when you compare their impact to just about every other industry on the planet and the fact that the hardware used is being done on a smaller scale by regular consumers anyways. Every gamer is bad for the environment by that logic and should be stopped. The hardware is power intensive and the gear being used to create NFTs is the same ######### on a bigger scale. The "environmental impact" is coming from electricity usage which isn't a problem with the industry. There is a thing called renewable energy and mining operations that rely on that, are clean. They are not impacting anything environmental whatsoever in that regard. Whereas one that is not in an area that relies on renewable energy sources is going to leave a carbon footprint... Just like everyone and everything else in the area. What NFT's should be criticized for is being yet another contributor for semiconductor shortages since places that can manufacture them are very limited. Combine with a pandemic and logistic issues that were already a time bomb then you got shortages impacting numerous industries and that's not even considering the consumer market.
tl;dr: If you're gonna hate NFT's at least do it for the right reason. Being yet another strain on production. Not "burning down the Amazon".
Not to go off topic, so it’s true all these computers data mining NFT’s & Crypto are accelerating climate change? I’m guessing electricity?
Pretty much. In countries that rely mostly on renewable sources for household consumption, it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but the people who do those things are often not in such countries.
However, as someone else also said, whole industries are far more polluting than this. That's not to say we should ignore either one, but to put things in perspective.
