The lawyers for Evony have dropped their Australian libel-tourism suit against Bruce Everiss. In accordance with Australian law, they will have to pay his legal fees. In light of Evony’s advertising strategy, it seems only natural to celebrate this news with a picture of some boobies:
It remains to be seen whether their ongoing campaign of harassment against Bruce will cease now that the lawsuit is withdrawn. Speaking as a potential customer, this episode has reshaped my opinions about a company that, at one time, I was content to just not care about. Evony’s behavior during this episode has given me the impression that they are an unscrupulous company run by dishonest men, aided and abetted by the corrupt Chinese government. That they react to criticism with judicial harassment and threats of violence, rather than trying to address concerns through transparent disclosure, suggests to me that they have something they are desperate to hide. I would not play this game, even as a trial, and neither should you.
