[RS] Boycott Against Battlefield 3 Is Underway - Page 28

This decreases the credibility of the boycotting as a whole.

If there was just one solid reason that everyone agreed on and that agenda was pushed, the boycott would be a lot stronger, but quibbling or uncertainty between the ranks weakens its strength in the eyes of the people who it matters to the most (EA/DICE).

Together we stand, divided we fall, blah blah etc.

I know that others can buy it, but what if you can't afford to buy it. - even if you can afford to buy the exapnsion after the release you still CAN'T get the perks etc. that those who preordered it can.
You are in the same position. - 0.o
Here they are offering you extra content basically for free, and people are complaining that they DON'T have to pay for it. How backwards are these people!? - people are complaining for different reasons:
1. suppose people can't afford to buy it now, and are working and saving money to afford it once it comes out, why should they suffer?
2. people don't want to purchase from a specific retailer just to get the content
3. why can't they just include the perks in the strike at karkand they will release postrelease?
4. people aren't all complaining about not paying for it, they're complaining about availability

To address the actual topic:

You only have to READ the thread to see how different people are boycotting for totally different reasons. You are a prime example.

One guy says: UNFAIR ADVANTAGE!

I say: How do you know that?

You say: WHO CARES ABOUT ADVANTAGES! I JUST WANT IT AND DONT WANT TO PRE-oRDER FROM X COMPANY!

Another says: ITS BECAUSE THERES EXTRA WEAPONS!

I say: Extra, locked weapons were added to BC2 without unfair advantage or unbalance.

Another says: ITS NOT REALLY THE WEAPONS, ITS BECAUSE OF THE SUPPRESSOR AND THE FLETCHETTE AMMO!



So, like I said, people are just making noise about what they want to make noise about.


This boycott is hardly uniform or unified by any means in terms of its reasoning and is evidenced by posters here giving their reasons. Yourself included.
Don't drag me into your misinformation. I'm not boycotting (I can't be arsed; effort? No thanks) I just support the boycott.

Yeah, like many before me, I'll leave you to wallow in your ignorance and uppity spirit.

The boycotters have a point. You disagree. Why are you still here?

As you can see I mentioned the fact that I understood that the SPECACT pack was available to buy, however this didn't stop potentially those who could not afford it from feeling inferior. Also you had to buy the SPECACT pack at your expense. Such can not be said for the Physical Warfare pack, seeing as it is free with a simple pre-order. It's exclusive, that's the point of exclusivity. You basically do EA a favour in the pre-order, and in return you get the content. Simple.

Would you like to quote where I explicitly mentioned you were boycotting?

Or is that you once again trying to stray away from the main point, to make another non existant point that you can "win" simply because that argument never existed between us in the first place?

"Pshh, I'm not even boycotting, so everything you just said is wrong! Man, I dont even care anyway! If you disagree, just leave!"

Again with the "I have nothing else of value to say, so I'm just going to attack your character instead of your argument and then leave" speech.

*sigh*

Dont let the door hit you on your way out

Apparently his purpose here was to point out that the boycott would be stronger if people didn't have different reasons for boycotting

Good idea, although I might have to boycott unjustified boycotting of the boycott...

Of course, there has to be some sense of order.
