With this new news and information about the game, I still think that Hasbro kinda won regardless. Granted, an awesome build your OC might come in handy if you want to go to battle with pre-made ponies that Mane 6 will make. Speaking of which, I should check out their site after posting this.
All in all, I have to give it to Lauren Faust for stepping up and at least give a polite "Fuck you!" to Hasbro for slapping a Cease and Desist on the game in the first place. At least the original creator has respect for her fans than the company. The MLP team would probably join Lauren's side too...but they need the money.
I'm still all for this game and I hope it still pulls through for fellow bronies everywhere. I may have a feeling that the well known bronies may have a hand in this as well. I can definitely see it. ACRacebest vs, MandoPony, Tara Strong's OC vs. Living Tombstone. If the game goes in that route, "SOLD!" in this feline's book.
