Nov 19th 2008 12:55PM 1. For those of you who think this is boring, that's a personal thing for you and people who also think it's boring. It's not a fact and, as Asia proves, not universally true.
2. It was the format. There's obviously a market for this, even outside of Asia, but you can't use Asian marketing/style in the states.
3. My opinion, something like this needs to come from an actual game designer. You can't have an after-market league generated around IP they neither own nor control. If the big-boys got together and created a league and ran it for a few seasons then it could become more commercial once it's proven itself. It seems that this company put the celebrity (and profits) ahead of the content and thus they failed.
The idea is solid, but I agree with those who have said that the execution was lacking. I'd even call it "amateur".

You say that this is an organized response and what I find funny is that it really isn't - it's just that a large part of the online community realizes that homosexual behavior is normal and that it does not harm society.
That's why I see society as a good thing - what's right usually comes out and wins in the end.
Feel free to try and organize your side of the moral divide into bashing GLBT but I guarantee that there will be more lovers than haters.
Because love just feels better!
Oct 22nd 2008 11:13AM Amaxe, I understand your point as such: you think that the people offended by this post have the right to say so and be heard without being shouted down or thought less of.
You're wrong. They don't.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of this fact but, I am and I feel quite confident about it. To take offense at this post is to say something that is not socially acceptable. It's saying "I don't want to hear about 'these people'" and, that's not an option. "These people" are part of our collective and anyone taking offense to this reality stands on the wrong side of the moral divide.
Bigots exist, and part of the cycle of acceptance is the collective shunning their rhetoric.
As backwards as it sounds, a key part of tolerance is an active intolerance of intolerance. Some views are simply not ok, just like some free speech is not ok.
You may not shout fire in a crowded theater.
Likewise, you may not say that GLBT posts shouldn't be made.
Apr 4th 2008 11:06AM I concur with the above sentiment - who are you to say what's right or wrong? Especially when the people who make the game disagree with you?
Life rewards ingenuity, in all things. It IS more efficient and effective to, as someone above said, climb a mountain with a helicopter.
What concerns me is the way some people are downplaying the "software advantage". Multi-boxing is fine, but using third party software is against the TOS, right?
But, what if the software isn't third party? What if I code it myself? Is that ok to use?
