Valve Boycott L4D Campaign, Fly Gabe Newell to Brisbane

Postby Mess on Fri Sep 11, 2009 2:56 pm

Following the news that Valve flew two of the main ringleaders from the L4D2 Boycott Group to Valve HQ to sample Left 4 Dead 2 and hopefully dissuade any ill-feeling, the tables appear to have been turned!

According to an article over at Rock Paper Shotgun, an Australian modder going only by the name "Joe" contacted Gabe Newell requesting to be flown over to Seattle so Valve staff could preview his custom L4D1 campaign, only to be told that Valve were boycotting his campaign.

As a result, Joe is raising funds to fly both Gabe Newell and Erik Johnson to his house in Brisbane so they can preview his campaign.

Check out the original RPS story for the fully documented correspondence, and if you feel like donating, visit the Fly Gabe Newell fund site.

wait what? Some random makes a custom campaign, and then demands that Gabe and Erik play it? And when they say "no" he blows it up and starts a fucking fundraiser? Either I'm missing something, or this guy is a seriously damaged attention whore.

Oh hey Joe I got an idea why no-ones asked you to fly out so they can preview your L4D campaign - BECAUSE NOBODY GIVES A SHIT. It's probably crap anyway. Plenty of people make brilliant things and oh joe before you say "OH I WAS BEING SARCASTIC" - yeah no you aren't because you're asking people for MONEY. How can I email this knobhead?

Robin walker donating 100 dollars to get erik off the office is just priceless. This isnt anything serious in first place. Gabe just thought he made a good counter and now he has to endure the conseuqenses. btw he made already 950 dollars.

What campaign is it even? I don't see any incentive to donate or care.
