You wouldnt know it from all the negative threads here (all started by the same 15 people probably) but the patch is a huge hit!

I have seen 4 polls asking about the patch. 3 of them showed people like the patch by at least 3 to 1. One of the polls asked for people "who hate the patch" to post, so it was biased. And even that poll had it as 50/50.

More people like the patch than dont. The polls show it.

Now you can either:

Waste your time on some silly petition
or play and have a great time!

I flat out love this game! And honestly feel sorry for those who feel the game has been ruined for you. But you are in the minority. The polls show it.

All of the polls (the one I saw anyway) were biasd. It was either you like it, or you don't. There was no option for "it could be better", or "Parts of it are better". Because's it that black and white, your always going to get more people likeing it, because it touched many issues that people wanted fixed. I personally don't like the patch, but not for the reason more people think, but I couldn't properly vote, becuase it didn't offer a choice that fitted the way I, and a few other people I know, think about it.

Not to mention the fact that negative comments seem to outnumber the positive ones here, for the simple reason that people who don't like it need to vent (and this is where they do it), and the people who like it are actually *playing* the game, and adapting, not posting.

It's not just like this with patches, but most things in life. You like something, you tend to stay silent; you hate something and you absolutely feel the need to express your displeasure. You don't see many editorials in newspapers with people professing why their particular view is so great, it's more why someone else's view is so wrong.

Not all the polls are biased.

Check the one that says "Official patch poll". Thats not a biased title is it?

And the poll simply asks you to say you like it or dont like it or dont care. Still not biased is it?

And the results of that poll? 2 to 1 like the patch. 108 to 50 something in favor of the patch. Not even close.

Check the polls, the biased ones AND the unbiased ones show more people like the patch.
