There are moments where we can affect change. For a few seconds every decade... We exist. These are those seconds! Let us storm their castle. Come on! (Tick.) Let's get him. (Tock.) Let's get robert! (Tick.) And drag Robert out of his office. (Tock.) Take his keys away from him! (Tick!) That's a clock! The time is getting very close. It's now or never. WHAT SAY YOU?
PS: I might be totally wrong here and Robert Bowling is just a sadist, but even then my suggested tactic might lead to someone bringing some sense into him.
You guys do realize that Robert Bowling is just a messenger boy, right?
He doesn't make the decisions to remove game types, or nerf guns, or ban hackers or anything else like that.
He's just the public messenger that helps market the game and its changes. And on the side, he gets to work with all of the feedback.
That being said, I think your 'Occupy' movement is a little rediculously stated, but the suggestion to give feedback to get DZ back is not a bad idea in itself.
But just make sure that before you go and bash on public representations (aka robert bowling etc.) You make sure that your effort isn't wasted. In this case, its wasted, because again, he didn't make the decision.
If anything, he would be your ally in this scenario. Convinse him it needs to come back, and he can bring that suggestion to the table so the REAL decision makers can hear your request.
Yeah there was a poll. I saw it over the weekend. They had it up on the right hand side of the page. I actually voted for Drop Zone but it was only at 9% of the votes when I did. People didn't have it ranked very high. If they used those stats to make a decision then the forum community screwed themselves unfortunately.
