As she pushed back, it only got worse. This is the second high-profile controversy Twin Galaxies has dealt with in 2018. It was why she stopped competitive arcade gaming, she says. DeSpira says she was brought on to give Twin Galaxies a fresh coat of paint, add in some new voices. “I’m tired of all you feminists and your bullshit,” he said in a video preceding its launch. He flashed guns in tirade YouTube videos and bragged on Facebook about bringing one to an event at the Museum of Pinball in 2017. Indeed, there’s a tactic called “barrel farming” in which an elite player, on the final girder stage before the kill screen, trades all but one of their lives for the opportunity of scoring points from smashing and jumping barrels. I’m a gamer,” he once said in a video. In 2017, after Ferretti saw Patrick Scott Patterson—one of his primary targets—walking around a gaming convention with up-and-coming video game history podcaster Katy Barber, Ferretti sent her messages, Barber says, and wrote a blog post criticizing her appearance and credibility. In a comment, current Twin Galaxies owner Jace Hall told WIRED that the organization “strongly condemns Mr. Ferretti’s abhorrent conduct,” and banned him on the basis of his behavior on the platform and in public.

While Mitchell’s questioned score is now thirteenth on the leaderboard (pending verification of a new score set Feb. 17), his others remain significant marks. Oh, and one of Twin Galaxies' trusted referees, Ron Corcoran, was convicted in 2000 of sexual conduct with a minor and is currently in jail. “Twin Galaxies is 30 years old, and a lot of people have been around for a long time,” said Jace Hall, the games developer and esports promoter who bought Twin Galaxies in 2014.
