Thread: Update 1/29/17 #Skate4

    Default Update 1/29/17 #Skate4

    So, as many of you have seen (thread here if you haven't: http://skatefluckit.com/showthread.p...249#post180249), Daniel Lingen who is the Senior Community Manager at EA tweeted out "#Skate4" on January 27th (FUCKING HYPE MACHINE ENGAGE). I have a hard time believing a Senior member of the EA team would be trolling us, so I'm personally taking this as an early sign that Skate 4 is actually in development. Boom. I hope I'm right.

    What does this mean for Fluckit? Well, as you may notice I am cleaning up the forums a bit and trying to get it into shape again, mainly just removing some inactive/irrelevant stickies for now. Debaser and I plan on attempting to bring it back to life in the way it once was. For the time being we're shooting to get a nice, simple homepage up with a News Feed to update with whatever news about Skate 4 starts to come out. If you were around back in the day, you might remember us doing official giveaways and releasing box art before any other news source and we did that via a similar homepage. The forums will still be here, but potentially will have a new url, so be on the look out for that. If you type Skatefluckit.com in, you'll end up at the home page and there will be a tab to arrive at the forums and you can bookmark that if you want to avoid the homepage. Along with that I plan on getting a Twitter account and Youtube account back up for Fluckit.

    I won't be doing any of this until I get some form of confirmation that Skate 4 is actually a thing. I'm working on that, but I'm no X7 ALBERT RIGHT??? lol

    Anyways, thank you to everyone who has stuck around during all the downtime. The future will hopefully be bright for us and the ancient rules and missions statement of Fluckit being a relaxed, well moderated forum will still ring true. This isn't and never will be the kid's table. Lets hope Skate 4 is happening because I would love for all of us to bring the community back to what it once was. There isn't a group of more creative people in the Skate community than what we had/have on Fluckit. This community has always been what you guys have made it.

    Thanks for giving us a home, Fluckit. Stoked to still be here, even if just lurking mostly.

    Daniel why you do this?

    Regardless, if / when Skate 4 happens, Fluckit will be here and we'll kick shit off again.

    I have a theory that maybe he was in that meeting and brought up skate 4 do yo the demand and got shot down so he tweeted that just to stir the pot a little. Like I said just a theory

    I thought he just wanted attention.
    If you look, it is the most tweets he has ever had lol

    He is a rotten apple.

    Even with the hype created from the big YouTubers like Pewdiepie and the like, EA is still hesitant to make a game the people want. What else have they made the past few years? Mostly shite lol

    Yeah, it's a very strange situation though.
    I was under the impression for the longest time that the team for EA Skate was let go because the product didn't sell enough copies.
    Yet, when people online made the game popular they started reprinting Skate 3 Discs. Something doesn't add up.

    PewDiePie is [edit: removed after researching further...the rest is still my opinion] annoying as hell anyway. He's the worst thing that happened to Skate. All he did was create a bunch of loud obnoxious preteens that yell about how much they want a game that they won't buy anyway and fueling a hypetrain that doesn't even have a track, or coal, on which to run. Content creators like him are what's wrong with youtube. I give him credit for earning money off the idiots that watch his shit, though. Poor taste doesn't deduct from a bank statement, am I right? lol
