Just a small post regarding the status of the boycott, and our current direction.
The two admins of the boycott were invited to visit Valve, and were impressed by the company. This does not say they were bought into anything. They were shown around, and had the pleasure of talking to the L4D team as well as many other members of the company. To say the least, they've learned a lot about what is going on for the future of the L4D series.
After going through what they wrote about their trip, I've found they are both still at full lead on the boycott, and our goal has not changed. They both expressed their opinions on the subject, so go take a read for yourself on the last dozen news posts on the steam-group page if you want the whole story. Walking_Target said quite clearly that he still felt L4D hasn't got what it should have yet, and not even a half price weekend could coax him into buying L4D2.
To be clear, the boycott is not over, and will not be over until our goals are achieved, which it soon seems they will be. Thanks everyone who has been supportive of our cause on moddb; every individual counts. To those who are against, keep the constructive discussion going, but try and keep the flaming to a minimum.
On a different note, as to the ban in Australia, Gabe (I believe it was him) is traveling to Australia very soon. Can't be a coincidence...
