This is some /x/-tier conspiracy shit, nice catch, by the way. But I still don't get it.
Let's assume for a moment that you're right, and this is an MDE thing. What would be the motivation? I mean, I can understand the motivation behind "Dark Skyes" troll campaign: it was back in 2014, the hype was still high, the internet was basically flooded with pony to the point where a ton of people (including Sam) were annoyed by it. From that perspective, it's kinda understandable, relatable even.
The main question is the timing: why now?
1) The fandom is virtually gone from the public consciousness, the whole gig would have zero reach on either side.
2) There's no perceivable gain from burning that much money on a joke that's not even sure it lands.
3) Why would be Sam still butthurt about horsefuckers in 2021? Doesn't make sense.
From what I've learned from the MDE/KSTV/HWD series, I'm pretty sure he does not have that much time and money to burn on something that yields no material returns, he's pretty much focused on his own game project and his show.
I don't know... it doesn't feel like an MDE thing to me, but uh, I might be wrong.
