First of all, this is what happened in my country China.
Every player knows that BoD's developer is "Rebel Act Studios", the publisher is "Codemasters", and there are agents in other countries.
For example, the "天人互动" agency in China is pronounced "Tian Ren". Wikipedia page.
"Tian Ren" was established in 2001 and closed down in December 2003. The company once sold (with agency) the Blade of Darkness in China, so Chinese players were impressed with "Tian Ren".
Recently, there is a Chinese named "Wang Kai", in the order of Chinese, "Wang" is the surname. He used the same name "Tian Ren" to register another company in China (just a shell company) in 2018. The bad guy sold the BoD game on the website in the name of "Tian Ren" and claimed to own the copyright of BoD.
Chinese players are easily confused by him, because the real 2001 "Tian Ren" did sell "Blade of Darkness", but the "Wang Kai" company is fake "Tian Ren". I know that he does not own any BoD copyright.
That man also created a lot of rumors and did some illegal behavior. He packaged the mod made by modders into the original game and then sold the entire game. Stealing the fruits of other people’s work.
I have posted a warning post in the BoD community in China, so don't worry, the bad guy's goods are not bought at all.
He was only active in China before, and he has been against me and reported my article. Until recently, he began sending emails to modders in other countries saying that I was bad. MBK told me that he received a strange email, I have already discussed it with MBK, so I decided to write this post here.
The bad guy's mailbox is firstname.lastname@example.org.
BoD fans please don't be angry, MBK told me:
I know that the work of BoD modders doesn't seem to have any legal guarantees, but they have been doing it, just doing it... Like Prospero, Sir Random, MBK, Tomash, etc... Because real BoD players will remember them, real fans know how to share, this is the best thing!Don't believe his/their psychological tricks, it is not good to lose the control of emotions and get into a rage ...
