Ryan, the creator of this awesome mod just informed us that Activision has taken action against his YouTube video, and while many people saw this coming, this is just sad sad news. All that hard work for no payoff?! HEY ACTIVISION?! Do you see how well Gabe Newell and Valve are doing? Do you understand WHY they are doing so well? The Fans. LISTEN TO THEM!
Ryan’s email to us:
I’m not sure if my first message went through, it was pretty long, but Activision just took action against the video. Can you believe this man? They put out a tool to let us do anything and then shut us down when we get too good with it?
We’ll update this post as we get more information.
More updates past the break, plus another source of the video. If you want a piece of fan modding history saved in your hard drive, download the YouTube flick past the break before it gets taken down. We will have a one-on-one chat with Ryan tomorrow to see if this is just a naming problem or something more.
Update - We have contacted Blizzard. We’ll let you know if we receive word on this story.
Update #2 – Ryan tried to email Blizzard. Riot Games wants him. More after the break.
Update #3 – Riot Games tossed him a ball. Blizzard has respond to Ryan directly. More after the break.
Update #4 – Ryan explains what happend.
