We Should just all go on freakin strike like peps did with Call of Duty 2. Activision Finally got the point when peps went on strike. I say we all do the same thing as the people did for COD2, just shutdown all the server and no one play for a night maybe even 2 just to show them that if it wasnt for us/consumers they wouldnt even be where they are today. Anyone with me on trying to get the word out?? :confused:

You know what the strike did for cod2 ? NOTHING It made people not play on the servers they were paying for cause they wanted anticheat software that they were already getting ready to release. Yeah very smart of them to shut down servers that they pay 2/slot for and then not play a game they spent 50 bucks for... Damn gamers have been struck stupid. They whine they aren't getting their monies worth... Then don't play it ? Makes no sense.

A STRIKE? NO! Striking will most probably not accomplish anything. Striking not to play a game online will not affect them as much as you may think. If th entire community decided not to hire RANKED servers that would make an effect as they continue gain revenue from the Ranked server program. This is irrelevant to me as i won't strike anyway.

I have to agree, i don't honestly think that striking will have the desired effect. They might just think that it has outlived its popularity and decide not to support it anymore if that keeps up. The problems with the game aren't that bad anyway... If you're that wired about it here's an idea, why don't you strap some explosives to yourself and run into EA headquarters, that'll show em...oh wait...maybe not.

Yeah, you all have fun picketing while I reap the rewards of fewer dumbasses in servers TKing, and no more laggy servers! Yes! Go on strike! It'll have an effect on nobody but me, therefore increasing my ownage ten-fold. :naughty:

Yeah, something tells me you should be expecting a knock on the door by the F.B.I. pretty soon. What a dumb thing to say. It's not like we really have freedom of speech, they just tell us we do until we say something illegal.

Imagine that, illegal speech/freedom of speech, see how they contradict?

Good luck though, I was serious about the F.B.I., you might want to print a retraction and an explanation.

I doubt the FBI will care since they have more important things to worry about other than some silly guy wanting to blow EA up for publishing a crappy game that they forced to be made faster.

If the FBI would go after every single thing like this we would all be in prison.

The COD2 strike did do a very good job and many servers supported it... about half. And I dunno if this is true but supposivly it costed Activision Millions because of that?
