So, let's see...I have been called a liar on these forums, a hater, a bitch, a c***, full of sh...erm...poo, and berated, bad mouthed, belittled, and even sent death threats...over my opinion on games. So it went with D&DO, Warhammer, AoC, LoTR's, Aion, Rift, and just about any game I have ever written about or commented on here on MMORPG.com.
SW:ToR is no different.
With that said, I am going to put my blog and my MMORPG.com account on the line tonight. How you might say will I be doing this? Simple - read on.
Too many times have I been told I do not know what I am talking about, and that I am full of it, and I don't know anything about MMORPG's, and you know what, let's see if that is true.
As someone that has played these games for many years I am going to put my experience, and knowledge, with this genre to the ultimate test - tonight for the first time ever here on MMORPG.com a blogger and frequent user of these very forums will voluntarily be willing to admit they were wrong and delete their account, and no longer participate in this websites community by offering up this proposal.
I will freely delete my account, stop blogging, and never use this websites forums or services again - ever - if, by Dec 20th, 2012 the subscription rate of SW:ToR is, in the North American market, at 3 million, or more subsrcibers.
How did I come up with this number? Simple I read the dozen or more comments here on these very forums that proclaim this game will have upwards of that many subscriptions or more!
Wait...don't tell me that is too high of number, because I refuse to cut anyone(especially the zealot fans of this game) any slack on this. You have constantly attacked me and called me a liar, and every other name and are constantly harrasing me with every and any post I make regarding this game. So know it is time to either put up or STFU!
Either the game is as good as the fanboi's wish everyone to believe or it isn't. I say it isn't. I say the game is not even half as good as Rift even, and that isn't saying much since Rift isn't breaking those subscription numbers everyone was touting and throwing around on these boards awhile back, prior to its launch - anyone recall how the fans were saying that Rift was going to break all gaming records and would have 2 million subs after its first year?
Want me to rub in what you some of you said about Rift, and how well it was going to do? Want me to drag up the old post where some guy posted something I said here on these boards over on the Rift's main boards, where I was constantly attacked, and even threatened with my life, because I had the audacity to say the things I did about that game? Well guess what...now is your big chance! This is your chance to shut me up for good.
If, in a years time, this game has 3 million subscribers in the US I'll delete my account here, and quit blogging about MMORPG's here on MMORPG.com, and you'll never have to hear, or read anything I ever say about an MMO ever again, on this website.
With that said...if however I am proven right and this game does not have 3 million subscribers as the zealots would like everyone to believe - guess what - sign my blog with a comment below and if your name is on my blog - you have to do what I was going to do - delete your account and never come back to this website again. Also, before you leave you must come to my blog the day of Dec 20th, 2012, before you delete your account, and say, "I am a douche' fanboy/girl(whatever the case maybe) and I do not deserve the right to make comments on MMORPG's, or make comments on this websites forums, because I am not worthy of even being on the same forums as Kristi, the blogger, and community members of MMORPG.com".
What do you say? You up to the challenge? Willing to put your account on the line?
I'll be waiting for all the people who wish to make a comment on this blog and take me up on the challenge. By the way this offer stands for the next two weeks. After two weeks it will no longer be valid.
Oh and do not post to this if you do not wish to delete your account, this is only for the fans of this game that are willing to stake their MMORPG.com accounts on the line. You post and I win, you delete your account and never use this website again to make comments on MMORPG's - ever.
I'll be waitng.
