Ubisoft Dev Allegedly Involved with Doxing of Female #GamerGate Supporter, No Response or Apology Given

mombot-09-22-16-1

If you haven’t been following the #ZachAttack debacle in which prominent #GamerGate supporter Mombot was targeted by a doxing group, let’s get you caught up a bit.

Mombot posted a Medium piece exposing a staffer at Zoe Quinn’s anti-harassment/abuse hotline, Crash Override Network, named Robert Marmolejo (who goes by the alias @UnseenPerfidy).

This user allegedly sexually harassed 20 different women, while seemingly fighting to stop the very same kind of harassment at the group. After the piece blew up in virality, the aforementioned doxing group banded together in an attempt to reveal Mombot’s identity, in an effort to silence her.

Following this, Mombot led this supposed doxing group herself and with help, fed them false information regarding her identity, history, and so on.

What they didn’t expect was finding Palle Hoffstein, Creative Director at Ubisoft’s Blue Byte studio, among the people ready to dox a person with different views.

Hoffstein posted under the name “27 Inch Garlic Hero” and was seen posting information in the chatlogs fed to him by Mombot and crew. While all of this information was false, the intent to reveal her identity against her will is deeply troubling.

The severity of his involvement with this attempt to dox a female Twitter user even led to him changing aliases numerous times, only to eventually delete his Twitter account entirely. So what gives?

After both Ubisoft and Palle Hoffstein were contacted and offered no response or apology, nearly a month later we’re publicly asking either Ubisoft or Hoffstein to respond or apologize for a textbook example of harassment, among other things. We’ve also reached out to Ubisoft privately for a response.

How do you guys feel about Ubisoft and Hoffstein’s silence on the matter? Sound off in the comments below!

    Palle is a disgrace to this industry. Not only did he engage in such vile behaviour like a giddy 12 year old schoolgirl, but he has refused to apologise or, at the very least, denounce the harassment of Mombot by Crash Override staff. If he wants to attack the gaming community in such a vile way, the very least the coward can do is own it.

    GG was dormant for a long fucking time but then the chatlogs for Crash Override Network were leaked
    And in it there was proof that absolutelly everything that was specualted by Gamergate and more was true
    Every single bad thing that was said to have been done by Zoe3 Quiin and her supporteds turned out to be true, and many more thing most people didn’t even know about

    If you’d like to send a message, don’t buy these games and drop Ubisoft an e-mail explaining how Palle Hoffstein, Creative Director at Blue Byte studio is the reason why you won’t buy Blue Byte titles until something is done about their harassing doxxer of a creative director.

    Gamergate has grown from pointing out ethical issues in gaming journalism to pointing out cancerous ideas meddling in creative or media arts.
    However, it’s only a small subset of a larger whole that’s sweeping the entire nation. You’d have to be pretty selective or blind to not see such, especially considering you’re on Nichegamer of all places.

    It pretty much goes to shows how far people like Hoffstein will go just so they can stay trendy. All this thirst for being PC and “progressive” just comes down to one thing: being a trend. One which these clowns know little to nothing about what they claim to fight for and a number of them show their true colors that say the opposite. What’s worst is that these clowns cant even own up to their own actions and take personal responsibility when caught, but bitch and preach that others to clean up their act.

    And yet you’re here, giving a click to an article on a pro-gg site at that.

    But in all seriousness, there’s a bigger issue going on than just twitter bitch slap fighting. Hell, I dont even touch twitter, but even I dont need that to figure out that some of the shady games journalist and developers cant clean their own house. With all the bullshit and drama thats been going on at least i can say that there are some in gg or even neutral that are offering alternatives for gamers who are fed up with being fed shit by those in the industry. For that reason I say that GG is far from being fools.

    I can agree with you not caring to get into twitter fights. That i’m 100% with you on that one. That mess is a waste of time anyhow.

    However, I dont think simply just being complacent about the whole matter does anyone good either. It pretty much sends a bad message to these developers and journalist that gamers are limp dick losers that will take any beating they get laying down and are ok with being treated shit as long as they get a shiny new game to play. That’s a fucking disgusting attitude to have in my opinion.

    I never said I was complacent. I just don’t engage in pointless twitter arguments. At best, it just makes gamers look overly confrontational.

    The way to fight bad journalism is to not give them clicks, and try informing people. Same thing with game developers, support the ones doing a good job.

    Video games are a business, and money talks much, much louder than words.

    I feel like I havn’t bought an Ubisoft game in probably 6-8(?) years. Clearly not for this but for various other reasons. So as far as I’m concerned Ubisoft could sink into the ocean and I don’t think I’d care.

    That said right now all I’m seeing is an accusation of Doxing that if I’m not mistaken seems to itself to be the result of Doxing. So I’m happy to wait and see where/if this goes before I jump on any hate train that in all likelihood isn’t going to effect my relationship with Ubisoft one way or the other. I mean it’s not like I can buy their games any less….

    People like you never seem to understand that despite both sides attacking each other, there is actually a huge difference to it, and that difference is:

    GamerGate advocates for ethical journalism, freedom of expression/creativity, free speech and anti-censorship. GamerGate attacks by using facts, reason, logic and the truth.

    SJWs/feminists advocates for corrupt journalism, restriction of expression/creativity, controlled speech and censorship. SJWs attacks by using lies, slander, feelings and false victim-hood.

    GamerGate is trying is defend itself.

    SJWs are the cancerous invaders.

    That’s the difference. So no, GamerGate are not fools at all.

    Also, I seem to remember you declaring yourself to be a male feminist. Maybe you’re butthurt at the likes of feminist Zoe Quinn and CON being exposed as the cunts they are, so that’s why you’re pretending to be a neutral to discredit GG…

    Always be wary of so-called “neutrals”. I’m constantly finding out that being a “neutral” is a common SJW tactic – pretend to be a neutral and say GG/Anti-SJWs are “just as bad” to discredit them and make them look bad. This allows them to avoid any backlash and make it appear as if it’s the ‘normies’ opinion.

    At least Anthony Mackie isn’t so far, he has spoken before on how Marvel should always use best director for the job, instead of looking for directors that fit a certain profile like using a woman for Captain Marvel and a black guy for Black Panther.
    Whedon is such a disappointment, he would defend feminists even if they were feeding on his guts.

    It’s already been acknowledged that crash override is a harassment group, thanks to the leak. This isn’t surprising in the least. More reason to hate Ubisoft is never bad, but of course I’d rather hear they got their shit together and are making good games instead of how they were infiltrated by backwards regressives. The truth is the truth. Fire the fuckwad and don’t let him back into the industry.

    I’m not surprised in the slightest… Ubisofft, Bioware, these people just walk together I guess.
    I know what I’m about to say may sound unrelated to this case, but it shows how these people work.

    Not long ago, I worked as an animator for this guy I met in college, I had very little contact with him before that, he wanted to make a game with a female character that would be revealed only in the end of the game (exactly like Samus). I always wondered if he had that stupid mentality “Oh, dudebros will play as a girl and won’t even know it”, I saw a variation of it in regards to race in a FB group I used to be a part of.
    Later, some of my colleagues mentioned he had a fight with this artist girl that studied on a related course. Months later, some said to have caught him erasing the watermark on some of her drawings. This guy is a big friend on the presidente of a company that is associated with our IGDA. And later this year they will be making a conference for indie developers.
    Yesterday I got this notification for an article on the event’s website called “much more than feminism”. I clicked. There I saw the people called to do the talk on the event.
    Among them was none other than Rami Ismail. Rami is part of the indie company know as Vlambeer and also a stern Anti-GGr. He was also in a few pictures with Zoe Quinn and Phill Fish.

    These people are hypocrites, and they seem to attract each other.

    Keep in mind that GG wouldn’t even exist as a movement if the SJWs simply minded their own damn business and left people and their hobby alone. But no, they have to act all high and mighty by trying to dictate to others how to live their lives, and then relentlessly bully those who show even the least bit of resistance to their warped agenda until they’re silenced. And yet, when some of these people finally tire of being used as punching bags, and make the judicious decision to band together as one and put up an organized resistance of some kind, a lot of ignorant people have the gall to chastise their actions as too extreme and blindly lump them in with the ones doing the actual attacking. What a truly messed up world we live in when the victim(s) catch the same amount of flack as the bully.

    The Punisher has his family killed, and decided to go 1 man criminal enterprises around the country and was a Marine who served under special forces. He has no superpowers to speak of, just raw training and high pain tolerance with no pain killers. He also sided with Cap during the first civil war and saved Spider-man from Stark’s thugs as he was trying to escape.

I’ll say this though: For those people who thing GG is useless and such, I would say just stay clear of anything GG related all together and not waste your time. Your lot is just coming off as trolls by coming in and stirring shit up which makes you no better than the “victims” or the alt-right. Just dont pay any attention to GG and move on so others that choose to still be in it can still push back against the SJW games media.

    Yes we need to be better informed and not give these shady sites the time of day. But also we do still need to keep our ground and continuing call out bullshit when we see it, which is what Niche Gamer is doing with this article.

    “calling out bullshit” accomplishes very little, and it definitely shouldn’t be in the purview of a website that reports on video games.

    Remember when that was a thing? When gamergate wanted games media to just focus on games and not politicize things?

    You’re not “pushing back” against anything, you’re only making asses out of yourselves at this point. Gamergate has been spinning it’s wheels for over a year, feeling content with just arguing on twitter and not actually doing anything to make the industry better. Maybe if gamergate had actually gotten properly organized and not just left it a hashtag that anyone can use, this could’ve been avoided. Between that and allowing dipshits like Milo abuse it to further their own political agenda, the gamergate well has been beyond poisoned. Associating with it now is counter-intuitive to it’s own original goal. The only thing that will do is make you look like a crazy tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.

    You do realize that part of the reason why alternative sites like Niche Gamer, LewdGamer, Techraptor, Deepfreez, BasedGamer and others exist is because of GG right? We wouldnt be bitching on here if that wasnt the case. As gamers we have more options on the sites we can frequent, which is in my opinion one of the bigger accomplishments thats come out of this considering that they’re still alive and kicking.

    >”calling out bullshit” accomplishes very little, and it definitely
    shouldn’t be in the purview of a website that reports on video games.

    You’re contradicting yourself on your previous earlier about fighting back against bad journalism. Calling out bullshit IS being informed on whats going on and for consumers to make their own decisions based on whats being called out. While Niche Gamer is a gaming site, this is gaming related seeing how it does give us gamers a glimpse on whats going on in the gaming industry.

    You’d be surprise, but not everyone in GG likes Milo. Hell, not everyone loves Mercedes, Christina Sommers, IA, Mundanematt and some of the other big voices of GG. Personal I do think there’s the issue of some of those big voice trying to one up one another over GG though that seems to mostly have died down. But then again this is the twitter bitch fights that i’ve been talking about. Dont forget GG doesnt exist just on twitter alone.

    As for GG itself from the way I see it, this is just a small view of the bigger picture thats been running amuck for the last few years with the whole PC trend that’s not going to be fixed overnight. Its a long grind that expands outside of just gaming and one would have to be be amiss not to see it.

    You can’t compare GG with a LARGE company like ubisoft.
    GG is a hashtag where people post whatever they want, there are no leaders, people don’t get paid. GG doesn’t sell things, doesn’t make money off products or brands.
    Ubisoft is a company. All employees are considered representatives of a company when they speak in public that’s why they usually FIRE people when they do or say objectionable things.
    That’s a very big difference, if Ubisoft just sits in silence they are basically implying A- They don’t care what this guy did B- They approve of what this guy did.
    Option C- Would be showing disapproval by sanctions on the guy.
    Option D- Would be if Ubisoft was sure this guy is innocent “this is just false, no Ubisoft employee was involved in such incident etc.”

    That’s not entirely true, he’s actually taking action with his wallet (considered by many as the strongest form of opinion representation) by not buying the games. He’s also sharing his opinion on a public medium which a lot of people read.
    He also, just like everyone, has a social circle where he probably shares his opinions. Some of those in his social circle may agree with him which in turn share those opinions with people outside of his social circle or the internet and thus the cycle is being repeated ad infinitum. Ideas are being repeated until they reach unexpected people.

    Have you worked for a multinational company before? Complaint emails are not such a big thing really, since they hardly ever reach relevant people. I take it you have written many emails to different companies, how many of them were replied by someone other than a PR representative? How many of your emails do you think have reached someone who dictates policy within a company?
    Emails are a good way of showing discontent (or approval) but they complement the online buzz.
    They are not like some form of surefire game changer that will somehow make your wishes come true if sent in great numbers.
    Keep sending those emails, it certainly helps but don’t go around acting like you’re some Thomas Jefferson looking down on everybody else.

    Niche gamer grew because of its support to GG. A lot of people support NG because they covered GG when it was being censored all around the place.

    GG as a unified concept started in twitter, so one could argue that GG itself contains a big portion of twitter drama

    If Palle Hoffstein is being wrongly accused then the column will be updated just like it has happened in the past when it turned out something was a fabrication but if it’s not then this is very relevant to GG and NG.

    If Hoffstein is guilty of this, he belongs in a prison cell. He willfully engaged in the criminal act of attempting to violate another persons privacy, to spread said other persons sensitive data across the web to incur financial, psychological and possibly physical harm.

    You do realize that you are frequenting a site in part because of GG. At least have some sort of compelling argument. You’re really just giving an opinion at best, which I the only thing I can agree with is that twitter is a hot mess.

    But that aside, I think the bigger picture of all this crap tends to always start on twitter and how overly serious people take it. It’ll be one thing if it just stayed there, but this crap seems to be seeping out into the real world to the point where it can become potentially damaging. There’s something disturbing to be said when people are quick to sit on their asses and witchhunt someone they dont even know.

    You’re right that we dont need a hashtag to improve the industry, but also that doesnt mean that we shouldnt continue to want standards. You seem to think GG only exist on twitter, but thats not the case. GG on twitter isnt THE source to go to if you want these types of discussions. That’s why these sites and different forum posts exist in the first place.

    That’s true about a lot of SJW, Leftist spaces. Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, all devolve into basic circle jerks to a point where they believe they are the majority instead of this tiny minority with backing from some rich foundations and individuals.

    Then they try to push Social Justice in video games and it fails. Comic book sales are down, and movies that just tried full feminism underperformed or got their entire senior VP and up staff fired (Ghostbusters) with the parent company assuming direct control.

    They throw a tantrum in the media that they infiltrated about Trump, Gamergate, ect. All while attempting to push a narrative that increasingly is being rejected by the silent majority. They really don’t grasp that they’re the minority and a hated one at that. You see that now from those jumping ship. They talk about how it was so bad being part of that cliche, that they were vile racists, bla bla you know the story.

    I really think humans have a heard mentality that really screws them.

    I’m not a trump supporter. Nor do I care about the race of the protagonist. I have other games with black protagonists. It’s not a factor when I decide if I’m buying a game. Only racists/sexists can’t enjoy a game cause of the race or gender of the protagonist and I’m neither. (Although I admit I enjoy games more when I can play as a woman. So sue me)

    And Ive watched a demo of the game with the developers in the same room as me. It most certainly isn’t SJW propaganda. The plot of the game involves rigging elections and killing dissenters, if anything the big bad is not-hillary.

    Given the main writer supports gamergate, you can be sure the game isn’t antigamergate. The first one was pro, and it came out before gg even happened. Probably why he is.

    1) There is nothing wrong with the protagonist’s race nor did I indicate there was. Nice attempt to paint me as a racist. The issue is not from my perspective but theirs. He’s black because of Virtue signally reasons not for any legitimate story telling reasons. He isn’t CJ returning to his home to make things rights, he isn’t Franklin trying to build a life for himself and rising above what he has. He isn’t Alyx Vance whose color has largely nothing to do with their character.

    He is black because he is intended to be the symbol of BLM style oppression fighting against the evil White system symbolized by Not Trump who endorces their gentrification and being priced out of a system.

    2) Doesn’t matter if you are a supporter of Trump. Taking a real life person during a political season (not from history) and making them embody every living stereotype and accusation is purely propaganda.

    3) At least you publicly admit you are biased. FYI in politics Republicans are accused of rigging elections, not democrats. Voter ID laws are a typical Republican ID from stopping fraudulent voting and are portrayed as anti Black. Republicans are accused of reshaping districts to ensure they win. Only in recent public perception has Hillary been exposed by Hackers and wikileaks for voter fraud.

    Also the democratic party has been exposed for massive voter fraud and institutionalized corruption that the media did not report on. Largely this game will focus on the big bad Republican Voter Fraud not the democratic variety. Nice attempt at deflecting through omission.

    4) I don’t care if the writer is Anti or Pro Gamergate. It is a trait that doesn’t impact their capacity as a writer or limit them from making an SJW propaganda game.

    Except in my reply you admit you know the developers and have been in the same room as them. That you have more insider knowledge, so clearly you have other reasons to purchase this game other than wanting the robot.

    history after replying to you cause I felt you were likely a gamergater and probably posted other things I agreed with. I hope you don’t find that creepy)

    3) What? How did I admit I’m biased?

    “Also the democratic party has been exposed for massive voter fraud”

    That’s what I was referring to. Especially with what happened to Sanders. So it’s hardly omission when we’re making the same point.

    That doesn’t conflict with that post however. Even if you didn’t misunderstand what I said, saying if it weren’t for him doesn’t say I don’t know him. Hell it implies I do. I have as much insider knowledge as anyone who went to their booth at fanexpo. And I went to that booth because of him (I even told the 2 devs there).

    My story is straight. I’m a little confused at how you didn’t think it was. Maybe because I’m not straight?

    1) It’s hard to not interpret that as not intentionally painting me as a racist as his race was not even a central point of what I said. You also ignored every other bit of my statement instead focusing solely on the fact I used the world “black”.

    I’d assume you were looking for comments to dismiss future arguments before I’d assume you were being creepy.

    3) “How did I admit Biased”
    “developers in the same room as me” You’ve met and talked to the developers while being in the same room as them. I’m guessing you were invited to that room, so you were entertained by special privilege to meet them. That colors a person’s opinion.

    “That’s what I was referring to. Especially with what happened to Sanders. So it’s hardly omission when we’re making the same point.”

    As I said that only came out recently, prior to that most people accused the Republican party of rigging elections and since the main Villain is Not Trump take a guess at how that is going to be portrayed.

    “At FanExpo. At a public event… that’s hardly “knowing them” as you’re implying.”

    I’ve talked to devs at PS Experienced. I wouldn’t say I know them on a personal level, but at the same time there was a meeting and a discussion. I particularly enjoyed my conversation with a dev on Shadows of Mordor.

    It was just one conversation, one I doubt they’ll even remember, but that doesn’t mean my opinion of them isn’t colored. Now either you’re super human, or you’re biased. Especially since you seem to be completely ignorant on what the company has previously said about the game’s narrative and Not Donald Trump being the big bad.

    No you can say you can overlook that stuff, but when you flat out attempt to portray me as a racist, flat out dodge a lot of the core issues that I raised, and have multiple stories about why you are in favor of this game outside just wanting a robot, I’d say you are being disingenuous at best.

    FanExpo, anyone could have gone. But I see your point, but it’s still not conflicting with my statement that I’m getting it because of him. That’s already admitting I’m biased towards him.

    “but when you flat out attempt to portray me as a racist”

    I didn’t.

    “flat out dodge a lot of the core issues that I raised”

    Now that I did because I saw you misunderstood me as someone attacking you, when I was attacking SJWs who demand representation in games.

    “and have multiple stories about why you are in favor of this game”

    Only 1. You just keep misreading it. Here, dated proof.

    1) Then why ignore everything else I said and solely focus on the fact I used the word black? Also using the phrase “I’m not a racist” and “Only racists/sexists can’t enjoy a game cause of the race or gender of the protagonist…” highly implies you are making an accusation that I am against the game solely because the main character is black, which frankly I don’t care he is black. The story would be just as bad if it were a gentrified Asian, Caucasian, or Latino.

    Fighting for social justice as they have said, which then immediately all the media painted it exactly how you did, that we whom are against this are racists. Not that it’s a stupid obvious propaganda story, not that it is merely using a black character as a shield against accusations, not that it’s literally a political shot against an entire section of our country, but that we were racist.

    When you say that you’re gamergate and then attempt to paint me as a racist like the media for being against this kind of bs as I have been for years, I don’t take you all that seriously. Nor would I care if you were gg or not. Wrong is wrong. I’m not going to say “well because another member of gg said fighting for social justice is okay because the writer said some nice things once I guess I now endorse it.” What do you think I have a heard mentality? I don’t care if he said anti gg is creating more gg or any of the other things. I’m saying it is immaterial to anything else. A non Sequiter argument at it’s finest. Point A: He was pro gg, has nothing to do with conclusion: He is a capable writer.

    Especially when the game is about fighting for “Social Justice” against a politician (whose office pictures have been removed from all the main journalist sites) who is modeled after Trump begin designed by a studio flooded with SJW diversity hires.

    “Even as this controversy was unspooling online, elsewhere in the Ubisoft Montreal office, perfectly named developer Brie Code was organizing her co-workers to design a diversity initiative.” -http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2015/12/06/gamergate-women-video-games-gender-gaming_n_8722640.html

    “Now that I did because I saw you misunderstood me as someone attacking you, when I was attacking SJWs who demand representation in games.”

    No where did you do that, you made a post about being okay with a black character while ignoring the majority of my statement about fighting for social justice. Then claimed you weren’t pro Trump as if being Pro Trump was a requirement for being anti propaganda.

    Also how does you’re statement attack SJWs who demand diversity when you are saying you are perfectly fine with it as if I am the one with the problem?

    I also didn’t misunderstand jack. You clearly attempted to portray me as a racist with your post by focusing on the characters skin color and making a statement about how you do not mind the color of his skin. That only racists and sexists do. That had nothing, what so ever, to do with my point and the only two reasons you would have for making that is 1) Virtue Signalling or 2) Attempting to paint me as a racist.

    Since you dodged the rest of what I said, that even the media is praising Watch Dogs 2 for being Hipster (SJW), it’s fairly obvious you didn’t want to tread into those waters as it is a truthful statement. Instead you deflected the conversation into non-issues like supporting Trump or being okay with the character’s skin color. Now you’re attempting to portray me as paranoid and delusional for believing you intentionally attempted to make me look like a racist after you by your own admission went through my past messages.

    “Only 1. You just keep misreading it. Here, dated proof.”

    No I have not misread, as I stated above it is a non Sequitur argument and a bad one considering how much SJWism is going into that game that the media is praising it for it. Cool the lead writer wasn’t anti gg, now how does that excuse the obvious SJW mentality of the studio, the obvious SJW story, and the obvious Anti Trump main villain? As far as I’m concerned it doesn’t change the fact that SJW is by even the media’s admission a Hipster GTA.

    Just to be clear: Mombot, a prominent Gamergate harasser, harassed Robert Marmolejo by claiming he sexually harassed 20 women with no more proof than a twitter post. Then when they tried to defend themselves, with the help of other gamergate people, went and doxxed a fake account of themselves, then blamed it on other people and laughed at them?
