quoteAs you can see from that boycott, a lot of contradiction occurred. In one way or another, this statement contradicts the whole boycott; -Valve is a company with financial needs and cannot be expected to survive without the release of new games. Go back and reread their manifest and see what I mean. In the end, I am not commanding you to purchase Left 4 Dead 2, I am telling you why you should. On November 17, the choice is yours.We Recognize:
-Valve is a company with financial needs and cannot be expected to survive without the release of new games.
Yes, and this contradicts half of your manifest.
-Judgment cannot be passed on the quality of Left 4 Dead 2 until its release.
This statement does not even make sense with this boycott. They are committed to not purchasing the game, but now they are saying that they cannot judge it until it's release.
-Left 4 Dead was, and is, a quality game which deserves the praise of the entire gaming community.
I can not argue with that statement.
We Are Committed:
-To holding Valve to its promise of free, continual updates to Left 4 Dead in order to build and sustain the community.
The Survival Pack, the Authoring Tools, and now Crash Course are all free. Valve also fixes bugs in the game often enough, and none of this has ever cost us a dime.
-To keeping the Left 4 Dead community together in order to improve the quality of online gaming.
30,000 gamers is not the Left 4 Dead community. People are going to buy the game. You can not control what people do over the internet.
-To supporting the model of continual updates Valve has set forth with its staple products like Team Fortress 2.
Crash Course is set to be released in September. ;)
-The release of Left 4 Dead 2 as a stand-alone sequel will split the communities and decrease the quality of multiplayer gaming.
Valve has said blatantly that the communities will be integrated in some way. Although it is not clear how at the moment, I have faith that Valve will keep their word.
-The announced content of Left 4 Dead 2 does not warrant a stand-alone, full-priced sequel and should instead become updates (free or otherwise) for Left 4 Dead.
Okay? Valve has not thrown away everything they have to show about the game. There will be some surprises when we start up the game.
-Left 4 Dead has not yet received the support and content which Valve has repeatedly stated will be delivered.
Well, it has now.
-That Valve honor its commitment to release ongoing periodic content for Left 4 Dead.
You are in luck. They did. A new campaign titled Crash Course is set to be released in September.
-That Left 4 Dead 2 not be released as a stand-alone, full-priced sequel but as either a free update to Left 4 Dead or an expansion with full compatibility with basic Left 4 Dead owners.
Then what is all of this gibberish about? "-Valve is a company with financial needs and cannot be expected to survive without the release of new games."
-That Left 4 Dead owners be given discounts for Left 4 Dead 2, should it be released as premium content.
But what about Valve surviving financially. The United States is in a recession.
Therefore, we - the members of this Left 4 Dead 2 Boycott - promise to abstain from the purchase of Left 4 Dead 2 until our requests are addressed.
November 17 is judgment day then.
