Left 4 Dead 2 boycott gathers momentum and new manifesto

Posted by GG Goblin On June - 8 - 2009

In a follow up to the Left 4 Dead 2 boycott news from June 6th 2009, the community has now managed to gather nearly 16,000 members and has published a new manifesto.



 

” WE RECOGNIZE:

 
-Valve is a company with financial needs and cannot be expected to survive without the release of new games.

 
-Judgment cannot be passed on the quality of Left 4 Dead 2 until its release.

 
-Left 4 Dead was, and is, a quality game which deserves the praise of the entire gaming community.

 
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.

 
-To keeping the Left 4 Dead community together in order to improve the quality of online gaming.

 
-To supporting the model of continual updates Valve has set forth with its staple products like Team Fortress 2.

 
WE BELIEVE:

 
-The release of Left 4 Dead 2 as a stand-alone sequel will split the communities and decrease the quality of multiplayer gaming.

 
-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.

 
-Left 4 Dead has not yet received the support and content which Valve has repeatedly stated will be delivered.

 
-The release of Left 4 Dead 2 will make Left 4 Dead an obsolete purchase and inferior piece of software after only one year since release.

 
WE REQUEST:

 
-That Valve honor its commitment to release ongoing periodic content for Left 4 Dead.

 
-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.

 
-That Left 4 Dead owners be given discounts for Left 4 Dead 2, should it be released as premium content.

 
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.”

 
Apparently the manifesto has been forwarded to Valve.  Lets see what happens…
