The squirrel has spoken on reddit, interesting stuff there
http://www.reddit.com/r/O ... king_and_datamining/

and his initial "story" here
http://www.reddit.com/r/O ... _coming_soon/cloo0co
QuoteHi everyone. reddit user tvsbrent brought up an interesting point buried in the comments of my swamp map screenshot thread that I thought deserved some more discussion. I'm mainly curious what the general consensus is on the subject.

I really appreciate how excited you are about sharing these things with the community, but I'm going to be Debbie Downer here for a moment and ask, is PIGGY OK with you sharing this information? .From what you said in previous posts, you evidently were allowed into a player testing community. You probably agreed to an NDA when you entered that program. It seems like you are now violating that NDA. A lot.
Just to share some insight from the other side. I'm a game dev and I used to work on MMOs. The thing I hated most was when a player in our testing community betrayed our trust. The worst case of this was a content update that I slaved over. I pulled 12 hour days for what seemed like forever. I was incredibly proud of the work and I couldn't wait for the players to experience in the manner I had designed. Then someone spoiled the whole thing. I can't tell you how angry and hurt I was. So there are a lot of reasons for an NDA, but one of them is to allow the developers to share their work in the manner they want. Here you have stepped in here and taken away from their ability to do so.
I think he brings up an interesting point. I honestly don't know how the folks at PIGGY feel about me leaking things like I have been... there's been no public comments from them on the subject at all.
And while I've been leaking quite a bit about the game, there's so much more I could do but I won't do because I think it would cross the line and just be wrong. I could easily leak the link to download the test clients, or the address and password for the secret teamspeak server. I could reveal the identities of secret squirrels past and present.
I won't do any of that though. All I'll do is post stuff I've datamined from the game, or take screenshots or videos of unreleased stuff... or of crazy mech builds that I can do since it's not validated by the server. I won't even tell how I can do those things, beyond saying that I have access to a secret test client.
EDIT: For the record, I plan on continuing to publicly leak any changes I see in the test client, new maps, mechs, weapon changes, etc. The only way I might reconsider is if PIGGY comes out and says they would prefer I didn't. As far as I know, they don't know who I am. If they did, I don't know what would happen, but i don't want to risk getting my account banned.
