Hatched 26 silver, 1 gold, 1350 x 3 and not one event bird. Was really hoping I’d get pecker ☹️
Can we move over and post results from hatching this event in the events thread that was set up, technically we arent answering the OP by just posting our results here now lol, plus it keeps everything this event based, in one place so less need to bounce from thread to thread and less alerts
Thx for explaination
You're right. But still: miffy sounds cooler .
Dick Bruna died in February last year, so it was probably the media company, Mercis Media who went after Rovio. Given that they won a case against against Sanrio in the Dutch courts back in 2011 for copyright infringement (Hello Kitty's friend Cathy the Rabbit), Rovio probably figured it would end badly and costly for them.
Plus it probably wouldnt be good PR stealing the intellectual property of a dead man. I dont think that would reflect well on Rovio lol
You're being too generous there. This Rovio we're talking about - the same people who didn't have a problem with the adult off-humour they put into some of their bird descriptions. It probably took their lawyers a few hours drawing simple pictures of cute little bunnies/birdies to explain to them how the PR side of things (deadman's IP and beloved children's character in a game with inappropriate humour) ties into the money aspect of it
I'd never heard of Miffy the Bunny before lawyers got involved, but I personally love that they renamed her Fringy due to claims of infringement - Miffy was just a random name with no other connotations, Fringy is hilarious, and reminds me of how they "fixed" the Angromedon when people started complaining that they needed to boost Stellarize and nerf Splitbull after they had adjusted Splitbull to be "not total garbage": they literally just switched the names of those skills around, and changed nothing about how either of them worked.
