You see what happens when you guys act without thinking? You get proven wrong.
And I should say, you've been proven, rather embarrassingly, wrong.
Valve just reported that L4D2 has twice the amount of pre-orders as L4D1, showing the overall weakness of the Boycott's members. Wasn't the whole point of it to "cause financial losses if demands aren't met?"
Wow, that's some nice financial losses, yup, you boycotters sure showed us, you know, with doubling their pre-sales and all that.
This can mean two things:
1. The boycott's not working.
2. Boycotters are still pre-ordering L4D2, thus, making their boycott invalid and them hypocrites.
Or, as a bonus, there's a third:
3. Both the boycott's not working because the boycotters are pre-ordering L4D2, and, they're just not enough to make a difference.
This is the best news a person could ask for, the developers are getting what they deserved, also, read this:
"I think there was a little bit of confusion that we created
unintentionally, by announcing a sequel and not having the complete
story ready: announcing it and not saying, there's still a lot of stuff
being worked on for Left 4 Dead 1, and the mod tools will work with
both games," explained Lombardi in our recent interview.
Uh huh, yeah, so that completely diminishes the "real" reason the boycotters are doing their boycott, they automatically thought that just because L4D2 was coming out, Valve had lied to them, when all they were doing was just being IMPATIENT.
Hopefully, this boycott will wash over, with AFIA, the Valve Game Devs, and the whole entire Mod DB and Gaming community declared the winners, and these little angry nerds declared loosers.
But, winning wasn't the objective, our goal wasn't to win, we'll never win, the AFIA isn't only agains the boycott, you know, but the objective was to see to it that credit is given to where credit is due, and that's what happened.
Hopefully, this is the end of this story.
And the end of the stupidest acts ever commited by Mod DB users or otherwise.
Here's my advice, what we've learned from this, well, not we, but the boycotters:
Don't make judgements before it's time to make judgements, you should've waited until you were ABSOLUTALY CERTAIN that Valve wasn't going to give you guys DLC, and even if they weren't, you guys don't deserve it, you guys are just fans because of the free stuff, not respect, you don't deserve to be called fans, just disrespectfull FREELOADERS.
