Two leaders of a group boycotting Left 4 Dead 2 were flown to Valve's offices to see the game... and they returned with a very different take on the boycott. The community seems less than happy with the result, and accuse their leaders of being bought off with a little personal attention. How Valve got the boycotters on its side.
When Left 4 Dead 2 was announced at E3 this year, PC fans reacted with horror and many felt almost betrayed. A sequel, already? Where were all the updates to the first game? Where was the free content? The backlash began immediately, and Valve was forced to go into damage control mode, giving interviews and telling its side of the story. It may not have been enough, with a boycott group springing up in Steam and gamers promising not to buy the new game. It seems as if Valve has given the team behind the boycott the ultimate gift: a tour of Valve, and direct answers to their concerns.
