It also comes across as petty. Because they didn't want to pay him a VA rate they hired a VA.
That makes sense to me though. You don't hire a handy friend who can reset pipes through youtube tutorials to redo your plumbing for the same price you could hire professional plumbers. They didn't give him the premium VA rate because he wasn't a premium VA. You can say it's quirky or a good thing that they went with nonstandard actors for some characters, but in the end hiring people has more to do with industry standards than what people feel like they are worth, the huge names make more than all the little names combined and that's just how it is.

It's not like they were on good terms anyway, I think it's fair to say that there's a sort of conflict of interest involved because Randy assaulted him, in the end they probably wouldn't have any of this controversy if he wasn't fired by Randy.

Mobile posting so my attempt at copying the article was a horrible failure.
Eddings had lost his voice after performing as Claptrap at a gaming convention in February 2017, but Pitchford wanted him to perform again for a studio tour for former 2K Games president Christoph Hartmann later that month. The day of the tour, Eddings waited in the sound booth for Pitchford to text them the signal to begin.

“Randy had gone into the booth, yanked my cans off and stuck a wet finger in my ear that he had licked,” Eddings claimed. “He jumped back and he cackled at me. Christoph and I are looking at each other like, what just happened?"
Because like any sane man, I too would give my employees a wet willie in a trashed soundbooth in front of the president of the company I'm currently sanctioned to publish a game under. That will certainly give the idea that we have a mature working environment in which we make our games, and never give off the impression that I'm a crazed fucking manchild.

I wonder what made him change his mind. He was clearly on board less than 24 hours ago. Nabbed this screenshot from AngriestPat on twitter because of course Randy deleted it.
Edit: wait, did Randy just fucking steal a bunch of money from people using the Epic Game Store?

"Supposedly" the Epic game store was going to front the cash to the devs anyways.

The issue is that anyone who missed the sale wouldn't pay full price at release. "60 bucks? Fuck that it was 50 before launch. Guess I'll wait for another sale." Before buying something else newer and shinier in a few months instead.

Randy has officially lost his last marble. The linked video was deleted, but it was an animal getting abused.

I love in the archive you have one guy who misses the point. Yeah animals kill each other, a CEO shouldn't be retweeting that stuff...on the other hand Elon Musk laughing his ass off over a deer at the bottom of a pool is still hilarious to me.

Pitchford should have been ostracized from theindustry by now but he knows the right people so he's still able to keep on doing what he's doing. If you're on good terms with certain elements in the industry, the people who share traits like still being paranoiac about Gamergate in 2019 , you could basically say child porn should be legal and get away with it.

Half of the "gaming press" have been guests at his clubhouse basement "magic" shows so this should not be surprising.
