disclaimer label on sports "sim"

SDS

In light of the fact EA sports has been sued countless times. And settled out of court more times than we'll ever know for deceptive and fraudulent practices. I have no idea about SDS or Sony, but odds are there is some litigation involved there as well.

But for transparency purposes and to protect themselves, somewhat, from legal hassles wouldn't it be more ethical for them just to blast a big label out similar to "This game is for fun, it is not a true sports simulation so results and outcomes will be randomized". I mean, they have the disclaimer about not playing too long because of headaches and all. They warn us about the gore and blood. Labels everywhere.

Basically there are disclaimers all over the gaming world. The most prominent cases you'll hear about in the EA world is about the "loot boxes" and all the class actions suits brought against them for promoting, basically, online gambling for little kids. Some countries won't even allow EA games to be sold because of it. It's why they have odds on the packs indicating your chances of pulling those coveted cards. They had to be sued in order to inject some ethics and transparency.

That, though, is tame to compared to all the class actions suits filed against them for liability regarding player depression and psychological side-effects (some pretty serious) resulting from deceptive marketing. Emotional distress through civil lawsuits.

People do get pretty "involved" (for a better word) in these games and are driven by the human competition they trust is the foundation of the game. Especially some of the younger customers and more impressionable don't understand these games are all for fun with not a lot of emphasis on skill.

I know back in college I took a corporate ethics course. To protect themselves (and possibly because they were ran by fundamentally good people) most of the Fortune 500 had whole legal teams that did nothing but investigate and guarantee transparency in marketing. In the long run the money spent saved millions/billions in liability suits.

Just food for thought. I do love the game, but I understand what it is. Little Junior out there with some deep-seated issues anyway, might not have as healthy of an understanding. It would be a shame (unethical) to continually fuel the manipulation through posts suggesting they need to "get gud" and practice a lot. Just be up front.

Drop the "tin-foil" replies to people that have serious concerns about WHY things happen the way they do in the game. This only reinforces a lack of ethics. I mean if a federal team of investigators did some serious snooping do you think they would determine that all suggestions about AI manipulation is unfounded?

It's fine to talk up all the great missions, cards, etc. They are a fun element in the game. But don't tell people you don't know (so don't understand their level of mental maturity or stability) how to become accomplished at a game that isn't about skill.

Sorry you lost

SDS

Lost what my friend? I'm just getting started. Every successful crusade starts with one upset person with connections, some bit of savvy, a legitimate gripe and, most of all, a whole lot of determination. I'm not talking about posting angry stuff out here. I've already got the reaction I expected, and filed it away.

I'm done with that part. Good day.

Ramone threw in a line of code to make it harder specifically for johhny_reb34 to hit, lawsuit should be a slam dunk for him.

SDS

There’s a great deal of variance in the hitting outcomes this year. However despite that, there is an obvious degree of skill needed to win consistently. This is why some people have 60-5 records and most don’t.

SDS

It’s just a video game, no need for a label that reads

“This is not real, this is a simulation, you are not Babe Ruth, you are on your couch in 2021, not at yankee stadium in the early 1900s”

All of that is common knowledge.

I didn’t read all that but the game is random. If you don’t swing at junk pitches that’s the only skill everything else is controlled by the system. Your perception of pitch speeds, your swing timing, your swing window, your contact and your result. Anybody saying anything other than that is just lying to themselves.
