I would paste the actual content of the post here but it would probably get me banned from the instance, even with the slur filters (cringe).
Anyway. I didn’t know who this cracker was before the mastodon spam post here and I’ve since done a bit of research. This was a recent post by whoever empress is, apparently they are seething all over reddit and it has spilled in this direction. She also really hates fitgirl, someone we all know and love.
Welcome to /c/piracy
No netflix or streaming services landlubbers allowed, this is pirates territory.
You can add “transphobe” to the title @firstname.lastname@example.org, as in her official telegram channel she said:
Pretty sure that self proclaimed 22yo woman is secretly an incel getting a kick out of ‘triggering the libtards’ 🙃
Problem here is that nobody else is cracking denuvo and she isn’t doing stellar job at it too. I remember when there was still like three groups doing it, i read many comments regarding her as the worst of them and some were really unkind. Now people naturally gravitated to worshipping their only source of cracks, and are afraid she will just stop.
Is piracy scene so small nowadays that this kind of bickering between two people is shaking it in its entirety?
Sadly, EMP is the only one left
Yes, up until very recently Empress was the only Denuvo cracker left. Even now she’s the only one that can crack the latest versions of the drm.
apparently. also video game piracy scene seems to attract the worst elements of the gamer scene in general. I never really venture beyond GGN as they pretty much have everything I could ever need and a very good community. Also I just stick with downloading console games, if a AAA release is good enough to play then I’ll pay for it.
I never use repacks, so I have no opinion on fitgirl and I had no opinion on Empress, but now… Holy shit. I’m surprised my monitor didn’t catch fire reading their post, they seem to be absolutely burning with anger.
Why do we like fitgirl?
Maybe someone should tell Empress that using ‘faggot’ as a slur is homophobic? Some people really don’t know.
This is such a silly rant. Really shows how some teens in a basement have way too much time and money on their hands.
what do you expect then cracking denvuo is only done by empress also this rants are just silly don’t mind it also she/he idk what is empress got talent far above us if you can crack games free then you can say that but if you dont well then dont bother others
I mind it when there’s homophobic slurs. Just looking away is what enables gay people feeling misunderstood and bullied. How would you feel if e.g. your first name or your sexual orientation was used as an insult by everyone?
Speak of yourself. Empress is some unemployed dude or girl in a basement cracking Denuvo games. They’re not doing much else, they’re also clearly not showing other cracking groups how it’s done. They just do it for fame.
It’s fair to say Empress has a lot of talent and skills. Most people can’t crack Denuvo games as it requires skill and dedication and lots of time. I really appreciate the work Empress is doing. But that doesn’t mean that their actions are above scrutiny. Just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you can be homophobic or insult people who didn’t do you any wrong.
That looks like a logical fallacy, more specifically the appeal to accomplishment. By this logic you can’t criticise me either, because I have skills in something.
I also once cracked a game myself – funnily, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on PC back when. About ten groups did it before me so I didn’t get any fame, but I had fun. I just added a jump instruction so the CD in the drive wasn’t checked. Way easier back then than Denuvo today, but I fulfilled your requirement and by your logic can criticise Empress. You can however criticise me or get back to the topic as long as you have valid points and don’t appeal to authority.
Stop thinking just because someone can do something many others don’t they don’t deserve to be called out for bad things they do.
