Why They're Rotten Now

  1. Very involved in corporate shilling.
  2. A toxic community runs rampant.
  3. One of their vice presidents was arrested for domestic violence.
  4. They support corrupt voice actors and they were responsible for kicking Vic off RWBY.
  5. The forum moderators are even inept at doing their jobs.
  6. They are very greedy. When they started losing money due to their SJW actions, they started raising prices which led to many people leaving the site.
  7. They also insult their own audience.
  8. Unpaid labor.
  9. They even blamed Gamergate for Trump's inauguration.
  10. They encourage doxxing and threats to people who disagree with them That Umbrella Guy was one such target from them due to his #IStandWithVic stance and for his anti-SJW nature to the point his home has been vandalized and he has received multiple death threats from #Kickvic supporters.
  11. Clickbait is more rampant now.
  12. They don't care about their consumers' health, only about money. For example, they made a tasteless joke about infecting any RTX 2020 attendees with sickness during the current epidemic. This establishes them as sociopaths who are willing to exploit their audience's illness for profit.
  13. They support political correctness, as they removed many videos not only from their own channel, but from the channels they own as well because they wanted to "foster connections with broader diverse audiences".
  14. They've been adding their own shows to other different streaming services and then their own later down the line, instead of the other way around, thus alienating First subscribers in the process.
  15. They deleted every single volume, along with all of their episodes of RWBY on YouTube, with the exception of the first episode in the series.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some of their series like Red vs Blue, RWBY, Camp Camp and DEATH BATTLE! are still enjoyable.
  2. Back when they were an independent company, making nothing but web shows, they were good, but when they were acquired by WarnerMedia, things started to go downhill for them.
