Agua Posted July 2, 2014 Share Posted July 2, 2014 So, let us suppose that someday an evil corporation tries to buy the game we love and transform it onto something we, the comunity, hate. What could we don in such case? How could we protect hundreds of follars and hours invested onto our beloved game? Let us analize the whole situation. In the hypotheticall mentioned case, we are certain that we couldn't stop the selling company. Think about this:If you owned DE and someone gave you more money than you could actualy count, will you not sell it? Probably you would. That money could give you the oportunity to create any other game you want, garantize the health and education of every member of your family, or any other dream you may have. SO, if that moment were ever to happen, how could we defend from the terrible abomination that a huge company, probably known as one that applies "pay 2 win" model to every game they buy?? I'll tell you how: Standing Together: Evil corporations shops around for games based on a number of faceless metrics, such as logins per day, average session length, peak concurrent users, average revenue per user, etc. They are not buying DE because they think players will like it, and will not be dissuaded from their purchase if players complain. Words are worthless to evil corporations: metrics are all that matter. Forum posts will not matter to evil corporations. Complaints will not matter to evil corporations. Petitions will not matter to evil corporations. There is only one channel through which we could voice our displeasure about the evil corporations takeover, and that is metrics. The only way Warframe players can send any kind of meaningful message to evil corporations to have them call off the deal is by causing a sufficiently significant change in operating metrics that would have to be reported to the potential buyer during the process of lawful disclosure during the MNA (mergers and acquisitions) process. Evil corporations will absolutely drop any possible future deal for the game if Warframe activity metrics falter significantly. This is a challenge between the power of the community to stand up for their game (by refusing to play it at all) and the apathy that evil corporations is banking on. If this ever happens, evil corporations probably expects a few people to protest or to quit, and if a few of us do then they go ahead and destroy this game. This is the community's chance to prove that it can't be ignored. And I'm not talking about some symbolic 1-hour walkout or a 24-hour boycott. I'm talking about not playing at all, even if they release a massive content patch, until we are certain that evil corporations are out of the picture. Everyone who logs in to Warframe, for whatever purpose, is currently supporting the evil corporations buy-out of warframe. Period. If you want to keep the game evil corporations-free, do not log in. Clan leaders should log in, set their MOTD to a notification about not logging in, and log out again. Stay on the forums, stay active and make yourselves heard here, but absolutely do not log in to the game. Show DE the empty desert they'll have if evil corporations buys them out and then you can all return to the lush oasis of Warframe once this 11th plague has blown over. So, if ever that happens, REMEMBER that we as a community are STRONG. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
