75% of Half-Life protesters didn’t turn up to send a message to Valve regarding Half-Life 3

We know how many people are desperate to get a glimpse of the mysterious Half-Life 3, so much that, a bunch of Steam members started a group where 50,000 members signed up to play Half-Life 2.

Uh, yeah, this was done to send Valve a message due to the lack of communication from them on this issue.

50,000 members signed up to play Half-Life 2 on Saturday between 2 and 2:30 p.m. EST. Only 13,000 members turned out of the full 50,000. Now can this be termed as a success? The organizer seems to think so.

“I am personally impressed with what we’ve achieved today. We’re nowhere near done—in fact, we are currently in the process of planning new activities; this was only our first attempt, and, in my eyes, was a success for everyone.

“It’s a success in my eyes, too.”

While it’s unreasonable to expect everyone to turn up to the occasion, it’s sort of ridiculous that only 25% showed up. Remind me never to take these, so called, protests seriously again.

This reminds me of the Modern Warfare 2 protest, and we know how that turned out, eh? But still, it will be nice if Valve acknowledges this initiative from their fans. Half-Life 2 did receive a significant spike on Steam, but is it enough for Valve to notice? Only time will tell.

  • To be fair to them, if you look at the steam community and the way its trained its members lots of people just accept invites to steam groups without thinking about it. They see an invite and they hit accept without really knowing what they’re going into. Also people may have seen their friends join the group, seen it was a group to get more info about half life, joined and didn’t really look at what exactly was happening when.

    That being said its still kind of depressing.
