NO-L4D2: The Twenty Five Thousand Zombie March


24 616 Members as of June 10, 2009

The Left 4 Dead 2 Boycott is a group of individuals who
have pledged to boycott Valve's upcoming release of Left 4 Dead 2 on November 17th, 2009. We have assembled a manifesto outlining the basic concensus of many members of our community. (Note: this manifesto is a new version, which we have recently posted to keep our manifesto in line with the middle ground of our members. This is the correct group for the boycott)

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.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
