Even worse than being a bad version of a video game wedding, it was a stunt ad for a company that their parent company owns.

The bride walked down the aisle. The groom's buddy made a toast. There was dancing at the reception. And it all happened in the metaverse.

The game is “valued” at over 6 billion dollars.

Moderation is somewhere between extremely slow and non-existent. Owners can't boot, mute, or ban disruptive players from their areas. Combine this with the lack of filters, the only thing saving the game from being a hellscape of harassment is its unpopularity.

Tons of people have bought and built conference centres, theatres, and stages, clearly riding off a fantasy of renting them out for events. The funny thing is that once building stops owners have very little control over their spaces.

It has the spirit of a dead MMO that was never alive. In ten months it has accrued the ghost town cruft that took Second Life nineteen years to accumulate.

What it is not lacking, however, is advertisements, with a lot of those being ads for ad space. Entire fields of billboards aimed at players that don't exist.

The place is dead. At peak I saw just under 1600 players online, with >90% concentrated in the spawn platform, two minigames, and a casino. 99% of the world is empty of players.

While there is a profanity filter for chat, there is no word filter on avatar naming *at all*. None. Zero. I could not find a word I was willing to type that tripped any filter at all.

It took five tries to get a connection stable enough that I could leave the spawn platform.

The performance is terrible, the controls are bad, and it is deeply unstable. You would in any other area consider it an alpha product at best.

I've been playing Decentraland all day and it is hilariously grim.

If I were inclined to suspicion I might suppose that a company the size of Ubisoft could make far more simply by issuing a product announcement than they could make off the product, not unlike how banks made more off packing mortgages into bonds than they did off mortgages.

Not accusing anyone of anything specific, just observing that no one, at any level, was required to disclose anything about their Tez holdings leading up to this announcement, nor are they restricted from dumping those holdings.

just to address some recent movie discourse: yes, liking a movie means endorsing everything that happens in it. for instance, i fully endorse using orcs to create uruk-hai and attempting to orchestrate the downfall of the race of men.
