[>NF<] BOYCOTTING DIRTY BOMB/EXTRACTION

http://forums.warchest.com/showthread.p ... obic-game!

As much as I (used to) love Splash Damage for having given us Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, the best multiplayer FPS ever, they have made a deadly mistake when they choose this xenophobic way of publishing their new game. That is simply unnacceptable in this day and age, with crowdfunding et al.

I'm currently located in Brazil and I run an ET server hosted in NY, a geographically central location with good pings for players from all over the Americas and Europe. I have 4 major groups of players: Americans (as in from the USA), Canadians, South Americans and Europeans. I would never play a region locked game that doesn't allow me to play with my friends from other parts of the world.

That being said, I will be actively campaigning against Xenophobic Bomb (Extraction is no doubt a more appropriate name for this Nazi-friendly game), urging people to boycott the game. Anyone who supports this game is also actively promoting xenophobia, and as far as I'm concerned, may go rot in hell.

Before locking my topic on the Splash Damage forums, an SD dev replied commenting their decision to use third-party publishers for different regions of the world:

"Each of the publishers have their own area of expertise when it comes to territory deployments. We want to ensure that we have the right publishers with the right area of expertise, for each location. There isn't one single publisher that offers that, and so we have chosen to go multi-pub route."

Well, really I doubt that Nexon, the South Korean company that's handling publishing in Europe, is more "experienced" in dealing with European playes than European or even American companies. This other topic seems to confirm my suspicions:

you are attempting to access from outside of our service area - Europe

The user who started the topic wrote:
When I launch Dirty Bomb from Nexon launcher I get a message - you are attempting to access from outside of our service area. I was a little bit shocked because I'm living in Europe. Anyone had this problem and know how to solve it? I really want to try this game.
And got this reply:
Nexon only considers part of Western Europe as Europe, and only parts of the UK as UK
That would have been funny if it weren't so pathetic.

The bottom line: Splash Damage SOLD OUT.
