Can I start a petition to stop petitions ?
a) by the time you had enough partitions to convince anyone to do anything HL 2 would be a classic budget game.
b) HL 2 is not ready for release, and petitions will not auto fix bugs and re-code the source to void exploits. I would rather wait and get a decently programmed game than bug laden, exploit heaven bit of mish mash code.
c) Online petitions mean squat, not proof than many people signed more like prove a few signed many times.
ahahahhahahahhahah not signing that crap :\Originally posted by hl2-petition.de
First, we were told that Half Life 2 would be published exactly 5 years after the first part, on the 30 September 2003. All the rumours that Half Life 2 would not come out on 30 September were wrong, you said again and again. We all believed in you! 1 week before 30 September 2003, you were not brave enough to inform us officially in a press report that Half Life 2 was postponed until winter holidays. This news hit us pretty hard. Not only that Half Life 2 was postponed, but also the Benchmark where we have been looking forward to and still not know when we can expect it to come out.
You make a good point, but petitions quickly lose thier persuasive influence when half-wit, punk kids abuse them to voice thier personal opinions...Originally posted by Maskirovka
actually petitions can be quiet effective, dummy...
but they're for political things, since signatures mean votes to a politician...don't knock petitions, just knock petitions to PRIVATE COMPANIES. this petition won't mean dollars to valve, which are your "vote" for valve. if you still buy the game anyway, it won't matter.
but if you don't think petitions do anything, think about the fact that the little recall election they just had in california...you know...the one that ousted one governor for another?
that was started by (and couldn't legally proceed without) a petition. they had to have XXXX signatures before an election could even take place. </politics>
This may seems strange to you, but in fact, Valve do delay the game to make money. Or, to put it a bit better, to make more money. If they delay the release of the game, the final result will be better which means good reviews by all the gamingmagazines/websites out there, resulting into higher sales.Originally posted by killahsin-[CE]
They really arent delaying it to make money lol
You don't get it do you? If Valve solves the security problems in the Source code that final result will be even better than before the fixing process was started. This means there's less chance of people being able to cheat and therefor there's a higher chance the game will get good reviews.Originally posted by killahsin-[CE]
saltpeper the game is being delayed because they have to for security reasons. You dont think so? Between gamespy and homelan you have 12 developers saying the exact same thing. Is that really hard to comprehend? the game isnt being delayed for money it has to do with security assesments.

My loyalty is with Valve, not a bunch of bitch ass, ungrateful crybabies!
It isn't a chance. You sound like a twelve year old who thinks he can change everything, but it's not that easy. Look, if the game is finished it will be released in a few weeks, if it isn't, then it will take the time Valve needs to finish it, is this so difficult to understand?!?! I mean do you think they will work faster or what is your purpose?Originally posted by hl2-petition.de
:flame: stop flaming kids
its just a litte chance to stop the delay to 2004.
nothing more :dozey:
