Is Y8 the last big sponsor?

Is it just me or has someone else the feeling too that y8.com
seems to be one of the last big sponsoring sites for flash games?

I mean i really see a lot of games getting sponsored by them these days.

They even wanted to sponsor a game of mine but i had some nasty problems with implementing their id.net api
otherwise the guy there seemed very nice and helpful.

It seems like Kongregate and Armorgames have their own gamedevs these days and y8.com somehow is also
sponsoring a lot of "lower quality" games but also a lot of big titles.

Kongregate is very much still in the sponsorship arena with its Launchpad (X) effort, but you have to have something really good for them to be interested.

True, but i cant get over the feeling that Kongregate will only Sponsor you if you are willing to make a game
with a lot of micro-transaction stuff, like  buy 100 coins for 1$.

Although i dont get whats so special about Launchpad. Basicaly just saying ------------> "Hey we want a good game, that could be monetized on other platforms and made bigger later on"
