Gamewatch.org [Nov. 1st, 2004|01:45 am]
So, let's talk about it. What would you like to see?

Edit: Hello all. I'm sorry about this, but I've turned on screening for anonymous comments in this thread and the top one on the blog. We have a troll who has been spamming comments every few hours or so, and I just don't have time to keep coming in here and deleting them. Rest assured if you post anything that ISN'T vulgar, I will unscreen it as soon as I see it. Hopefully the troll will lose interest soon and I can lift this.
Edit 1/4/2005: Comment screening turned back off; thank you all for your patience. =)

Your efforts are noble and wonderful.

I am mstrmnd34, a member of the C&C online gaming community. As a member of Westwood Online and XWIS, I have personally suffered at the hands of EA LA who bought up Westwood Studios years ago, and since has provided product service from bad to worse. The online gaming services are extremely laggy at best, and they even refuse to re-rout their server from WOL to XWIS because they believe that they can make more money off their new games by not supporting old ones. This is untrue: the real reason people don't buy their new games is because they stink very badly. In addition, they disabled 'lobby chat' on their servers when people started asking for serial numbers. EA also prevents anyone from sharing their serial and logging onto their servers. They are hurting thousands of people just for $$$. Worse, they are planning to kill the servers entirely without re-routing to XWIS, which would effectively destroy a great many friendships formed in the C&C community, which I think is the saddest and ugliest part of all.

BTW, I bought the game so I could do online gaming. In other words, I acceped a promise, and the promise was broken.

I believe that creating gamewatch.org is a truly noble effort, and I thank you for it. I hope to see EA LA clean up its act very soon to avoid more bad publicity.
