Well, this day sure started off with style, as Ubisoft creative director Palle Hoffstien just tweeted out that he thinks that Gamers are ass holes, and not only that. He has signed up for the GGautoblocker (Good Game Auto Blocker, created by Randi Harper aka “freebsdgirl”) as well. In fact, here´s the actual tweet by Palle Hoffstien himself:

palle hoffstien ggautoblocker

It would be nice to know what Ubisoft thinks about this?

This is pretty darn insane statement if you ask, especially since Ubisoft is a games company that sells games to Gamers, and it was a Ubisoft Creative Director who said this as well. So much for the “Don´t bite the hand that feeds“…

    To be fair we kinda are…. but if he doesn’t want to deal with us he should get another job. Also they shouldn’t be assholes themselves, their last games were buggy as hell and not worth our asshole money.

  • Andulvar

    Meh, the guy only works on ios and android games mainly so who cares? He’s only worked on three games for Ubisoft so far. None of which were even AAA titles, just shovelware.

    • You don´t happened to know which games that would be?

      • Andulvar

        Not yet, his Linkedin profile has all of the games he’s work on so far, though not up to date as of his Ubisoft info, but the only games he works on is Mobile games. Though he was working on Might & Magic Heroes Online back in 2013 (a Ubisoft F2P mobile game)

  • DynastyStar

    When have we ever “targeted him”? I mean, if he’s not corrupt, he’s got nothing to worry about, and even if he were corrupt, the journalist who is not being ethical will suffer more than him.

    • Truth to be told, most people had no idea who he was before he made that tweet. I don´t know if it´s true, but it seems like Hoffstien has “only” worked with iOS and Android games so far. I don´t know if his corrupt, I just gave me thoughts on what he said on Twitter (the part about the GGautoblocker and GG=Assholes).

  • Uranus

    I think this guy’s creative director title is exaggerated. He doesn’t say which Ubisoft studio he is creative director of, and mobygames doesn’t list ONE decent game where he’s credited, and lists none by Ubisoft, lists no games in the past 10 years. Literal nobody as far as I am concerned.
