waltz, I know you said you were calling Activision and they were getting obviously miffed with all the calls.  I feel like if more people were to call they wouldn't think it's just one fan, but a much larger group of people.

I do understand we don't want the number right on the "Save TSL" pages since some people may call and be very hostile about it.

FYI, further information about calling Activision is in this thread.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

We are coming up on 2 months and that is how long it took for the issue with TSL to be resolved before so I think people are starting to get really frustrated that the issue with having TSL released will not ever happen.

I'm sorry, I don't understand your post.
We're coming up on 2 months which is about how long it took for this to get resolved last time.
Soooo we're getting frustrated and leaving angry posts on the forums instead of being positive that we're coming up on two months? I don't see the logic here. Is this like, the Emperor's New Logic? :P

I doubt that they could just rename the characters without legal intervention.  The IP must include the scenery, story, character appearances, and anything else that distinguishes the series in addition to the names.  Purchasing the IP seems to be the way to go if the company will not grant a license and is willing to sell the IP.  I'm not sure what the IP would sell for.

yeah.  In one of the interviews, Someone said that they might do that as a LAST resort, but it would take forever to get rid of all KQ references and take another couple of years.

So for now, sign the petitions, shoot activision an email, call them, and eventually they need to realize.  Please don't say fvck off activision when you talk to them though... not cool...

I agree and understand that you would want to cuss the hell out of them, but that is not gonna work.  After all, you would be surprised that a lot of activision is actually helping us out.  Read this thread:

waltzdancing here on the forum has been talking to activision and reasoning things out for a while here.  Talk to her.

The spam can be a good thing or a bad thing. Its good because people are looking at the forum, its also bad because it could be a sign of them just picking on us. However with that said, I think with all the goofing off they have been doing, I guess they will fit in perfectly around here.
