Petition to Sony to stop calling boosting cheating!
I am wanting to start a petition that I will personally send to Sony getting them to stop calling boosting "disruptive" and "cheating."
After getting transferred a few times up to a "corporate supervisor" (Lee) at Sony he stated that I violated a "community code of conduct," and that they "will dictate how you play our video games in our community," and that "boosting is cheating," even though it doesn't expressily say so in their terms and conditions.
They say that boosting gives us an "unfair advantage" in the community by giving us abilities that we would not normally have. The problem with this is that it actually does not help us fight the numerous really good KZ2 (or any other game) players as the additional skill does not ever translate to ease of beating the people that play the game not for the trophies.
They said that the reason that I buy my games (for enjoyment of getting trophies as painlessly as possible) is wrong, and that I should not ever boost a game, which personally violates my reason for purchasing the game in the first place.
This seems like an attack on this whole site's purpose of getting trophies easier... and needs to simply be stopped. They said that if I submit a letter to their "Panel of Management" that they would review the case.
They simply have to understand that there are 2 completely separate communities: 1) those that play the game for stats, and 2) those that play for trophies. We can live together in peace, or stop doing online trophies.
Write your name and sign in ID in a reply if you want to be added to the petition. We likely need as many names as possible, so if a moderator likes the idea and has an idea on how it can reach more people... that would be great!
