Popular Youtuber Causing Community Stir with Charging Money for Build

Hey EA, move out of the way with your microtransaction weak stuff! We’ve got drama of our own, and it’s an epic smash! It’s a true battle of platforms, philosophy, pride, and accomplishments involving a couple of the bigger names of the community. And there’s money involved, money is always good for drama. Do we need anything else? Don’t think so, let’s get started by throwing out our patented kappafoss emojis!

What happened?

Are you hyped now? Here we go!

So you may or may not know the Youtuber MiniMi, whose style and personality arguably makes hin the most entertaining video maker for the game. It’s kind of a like it or hate it thing, but can’t say it’s not unique. MiniMi released a controversial guide video in which he blanked out certain portions and asked viewers to pay 5$ to get access to it. The comment section immediately started exploding with users saying that a) his build is crap and b) putting it behind a pay wall is low.

People discussed it everywhere and protest kind of reached its peak when Kali Gold had a go at him yesterday. On stream they went on comparing the situation to Lia Knowles who was asking for donations for a new laptop within her guild back in the day. And uhm, let’s say that conversation got a bit heated as well. After this interesting climax MiniMi responded in his patented sarcastic way, apologized and donated the money he earned with his build.

Our Takeaways

Did we learn anything from this? Surprise, people don’t like money grabs! It’s kind of the whole free-2-play lootbox discussion in a nutshell. Mix in some hyperbole, the mid-module drought, and some kappafoss emojis and you have excellent drama brewing.

Apparently different platforms exist in their own microcosm as well. Kali Gold not knowing MiniMi? MiniMi not knowing Sharpedge? What are the odds?

This was fun, let’s do it again. But don’t take it too seriously then, not good blood pressure at all. Wrapping it off with more kappafoss troll hype. Because why not?

    LOL! This is all so funny! I had to download both vids to watch them later at high res!

    I remember MiniMi 007 as a TR in Ye Olde Dayes of Gauntlgrym. Toxic Hack-Exploiter up on the wall, killing people as they respawned at the camp fire.

    Couple of years later, I came across his channel with a GF video. I even subscribed, because he is so funny.

    Funny, but Toxic. And just a little bit retarded.

    And it was not even his build he was trying to sell, it was some PvE guy called Floki. Which confused me a bit, as Floki was also a guy who made some really good mods for Skyrim.

    And most PvP players would never share they builds, anyway.

    Anyway, I bet I know what the build is.

    Conqueror SM with Staying Power from Protector

    5 Legendary Mounts
    15 Epic Insignia
    Five Legendary dps buff Companions
    Top Tier Companion Gear
    3 Rank 14 Bondings
    All Rank 14 Enchants
    Unparalleled Weapon & Armour Enchants
    All Boons from all Zones
    Rank 20 Guild Boons
    Overloads and enchancements on all possible gear

    Doesn’t take a genius to work it out.

    Unfortunately, MiniMi does not have many subscribers in that category.

    The rest of us are “haters”.

    😀

    I personally don’t fault him for trying to make some money as he does spend time and effort to put his videos together.

    His build is actually much cheaper as you don’t have to worry about companions/bondings for PVP. The real cost is getting the Wheel of Elements (active artifact) to legendary and buying the Golden Lion for its activated mount power. He is effective in PvP (as most well-geared GFs are) and is entertaining, which is his true strength.

    However, I believe he is IV for Trample the Fallen instead of SM for Staying Power as you can’t get Indomitable Strength (Hulk Smash) as an SM.

    Most GF PVP builds are pretty cookie cutter so I’m not sure who would want to spend money for the build as most of the effectiveness comes from the gear/enchants that power the abilities. Basic GF PvP build for free (there may be better ones out there):

    At-Will: Crushing Surge/Threatening Rush (if IV) or Weapon Master Strike (if SM)
    Encounters: Griffon’s Wrath/ITF/Bull’s Charge or Knight’s Challenge (depending on foe)
    Dailies: Fighter’s Recovery/Indomitable Strength (if IV – this is what he has slotted in his videos) or (Crescendo or Villain’s Menace (if SM))
    Class Features: Trample the Fallen/Combat Superiority (most chosen – due to Tactical Superiority from Conqueror’s tree) or Shield Warrior’s Wrath

    Heroic (3 more if Human)
    4/5 0/3 0/3 0/3
    3/3 0/5 5/5 0/3
    3/3 0/3 0/3 5/5

    Conqueror
    3/5 5/5 5/5 0/5 5/5 1/1
    2/5 0/5 0/5 5/5 0/5

    Protector
    0/5
    5/5

    Tactician
    5/5
    5/5
