    HL vs D2: Looks like we will need Starcraft's people help!

    Hello people. no this is not another HL vs D2 thread on gamespy...

    i posted this to ask wether anyone knows any big community SC forums liek dii.net?

    if gamespy did such a cheap move to let HL win... i will try to make SC players vote for blizzard product...

    I know they are mad but whats better? let some corrupted and bribed gamyspy network win or let another blizzard product make it top the top?

    plz tell me wether u know of any big community websites dedicated to SC

    we are behind just 2.5k votes...

    while we alone cant win, SC community is as big as d2 and with their help we will most likely win

    lmfao imagine the gamespy wake up on monday morning thinking their cheap tactic wold work.. and boom lol d2 ahead by 5k votes "WTF IS THIS? THEY OWNED US" ;)

    Good luck man and great idea.

    It pains me to see an (admitedly excellent) game beat Diablo 2.

    D2 is the greatest PC game made to date and it deserves the title.

    Any game that still routinely makes it into the weekly top 10 PC game sales chart 4 years after its release is truly unique.

    That doesn't make any sense.

    If Gamespy wanted to Make D2 lose, they would've just disqualified the last vote. I don't understand why you assume Gamespy has some personal vedetta against D2 or Blizzard, considering most of their Editors are busy playing the Wow Beta.

    And you're not gonna get the SC community to pick D2. Just like this site, there are still plenty of people that'll vote for Half-life. It could backfire. Hell, you people come with the excuse that people are mad 'cause SC beat D2, how would this help your cause?

    Well, I have played all 3 Blizzard games that were in the vote(Starcraft, Warcraft III, Diablo II) and I think that Starcraft is the best. I voted against Diablo II in its match vs. OoT because I didn't think that Diablo II deserved to beat Starcraft, and OoT is a great game.

    I will not be voting in the next one since I have never played Half-Life, and my opinion is that Diablo II didn't deserve to be here.

    Please don't flame because I didn't vote for D2. I didn't do it for spite / revenge. I had valid reasons. Heh.

    thx for the help guys...

    i posted 2 very cool post on 2 different forums based on RPG and mainly blizzard games...i hope that will make the gap closer...we are losing 2.7k votes right now

    And all of u ppl who say that gamespy is legit..for gods sake stop thinkign like kids!!!

    1)Why the hell there is no register link beside the poll?
    2)Where the **** does it say that u gotta register to vote
    3)Why does it let me vote without being registered?
    4)Why the **** it doesnt tell me that my vote didnt go through when i vote unregistered
    5) Why did they cancel Zelda vs D2 poll? Both got legit votes and only had 5k difference... They only had problems with Halo vs Half life.


    See my point? Gamespy knew about this all along...this is propaganda i am sure as hell.

    Alright guys....

    i have to go now i did my job.. but we still have Warcraft forums and most of them dont know about this...

    anyone wants to support d2 by making a thread in WCIII forums?

    i am sure they got nothign againts us...we didnt beat them in their poll. SC did and besides, WCIII is a blizzard games i am sure they will vote.

    my post on other forum + somebody else's post on WCIII forums = chance to show corrupted gamespy that if you mess with blizzard, you will mess with all of us.

    1 vs 1?

    **** that its 3 vs 1 (sc+wc3+d2) oh ya blizzard pride

    Ah come on if the whole D2 community voted we would win. As for getting the Starcraft community voting for D2 good luck they pretty much hate us because they feel like they was cheated and probably are voting for half-life anyway

    They reset the vote because it was highly suspect that D2 had cheated.

    Seriously, stop complaining. Diablo 2 got this far, and it lost to Half-Life. Granted, a lot of people at the GS forums don't like D2, but that doesn't mean that the GS staff would rig a vote so that it loses. If they wanted to do that, they would've had Starcraft win instead.

    I can tell you why gamespy doesn't like blizzard. All bliz games use and have always used battle.net, no 3rd party prog like gamespy needed. No gamespy needed, no ad revenue for gamespy. Money, simple as that. Unfortunately for them, new games like ut2004 include their own ad-less server browser.

    The other issue here is that gamespy's website provides basically nothing for any bliz game. All the bliz games are supported by fansites (diabloii.net) and by bliz's own very informational pages (Arreat Summit). Therefore, very few Diablo/Warcraft/Starcraft players have any need to go to gamespy and click on their ads.

    Only gamespy people know for sure why they went to such a stupid solution for preventing "cheating". I can see why they might think this is a good solution but less self-promoting solutions are bound be just as effective (ala ip logging). If they are worried about dynamic ips, they could just limit votes coming from single isps.

    But alas, such argument is pointless since the "fight" has already been decided. Besides, proof of the conspiracy is that all the bliz games were in the same initial bracket (only 1 shot for bliz in the final bracket). If Starcraft had been in a different bracket you know it would be in the final group (same goes for WC3). The best way to get rid of so many bliz games is to make them knock each other out.

    mmmmm conspiracy, oh yea

    All 3 blizz games were in the same bracket because they belong in the same bracket.

    And in no way is that proof that Gamespy doesn't like Blizzard. If they didn't like Blizzard, they wouldn't cover their games. But they do. They've visited more than a few times in the devolopment for Wow.

    More baseless claimes.

    And i'm sure planetwarcraft would beg to differ.

    How can they all "belong" in the same bracket? The brackets they have only pretend to be grouped by any real system. I can see why (assuming titles are actually grouped by type) that WC3 and SC should be in the same bracket, but what about D2? Why is it not in a bracket with other games of the same type, such as Everquest? Why is Doom not grouped with other FPS such as Halflife and Quake?

    I can understand that there are more game types than there could possibly be brackets, but shouldn't a "fair" fight start with totally random brackets, not a setup where it's FPS vs RPG vs RTS in the final vote.

    In the end it, doesn't matter. Everyone who believes this vote is totally legit has already decided so and most likely wouldn't even change their mind even if gamespy came out and said it wasn't. Look at the D2 vs SC vote. Even when gamespy came out and said it was legit, only the winning side really paid attention.

    I'm admin on a BW site over 3 times larger than this one. I can't send PM's and they don't let people advertize ( ;/ ) so I can't tell the full URL of WGT..

    Oh my God, when it is going to end?


    Please allow me to gasp in astonishment for a second here. What is it then, exactly?

    Seriously, stop being such a drama queen about a stupid poll like this. "We are losing", "We can win this thing"... who the hell is "we"? I like Diablo II too, probably as much as you do, but I just play it and I don't care about any frigging poll organized by any frigging gaming community. If Diablo loses to Half-Life, that just means that more Half-Life fans visit the Gamespy site: so what? Go to the Gamespy building with torches and pitchforks, sing "We Shall Overcome" and "Oh Freedom" until you turn mute for all I care, but stop the idiocy about that flaming poll in these forums. It is really getting tiresome.

    Oh, and thanks for cracking me up with "Blizzard pride!" That really made my day. :lol:

    Amazing how childish some people are. Fighting about some poll on GameSpy's site. They are the king of exploiters in the gaming community and you all flocking to their site to vote is just making advertising revenue for them. That is why I havn't even *looked* at any of these polls.

    In any case, I never hear people bragging about Starcraft, but I hear them bragging about D2 all the time. It was obvious to me D2 would win over SC. As for beating Half-Life though.. nope sorry, Half-Life is far more popular, even among many fellow D2 fans I should think. I won't go so far as to say it is better, as I have played both games and they are far too different to even compare in my opinion, but I will say HL is more popular, even with me (though I don't play it or any of its mods anymore).

    That complaint on the news post on the homepage is funny, since I never had to have a GameSpy ID to use their crappy program. That's just a childish little excuse. Does it really matter all that much that D2 win some stupid title? I hardly think so. The poll obviously isn't going to change people's opinions of any games.

    Some of you truely need to go out and get a breathe of fresh air, and stop fighting over GameSpy's table scraps.
