Those Halo Online modders aren’t scared of Microsoft

Microsoft’s recent DMCA takedown notice may have temporarily derailed plans to liberate Halo Online from its Russia-only prison, but the modders responsible for last week’s brouhaha aren’t giving up.

“We’re working to improve people’s experience, bring it to those who wouldn’t have been able to play it anyway,” Neoshadow42 explains in an interview at TorrentFreak. “I’d see that as a noble cause.”

He goes on to say that the mod team doesn’t see its actions as damaging or unwarranted. “The game was going to be free in the first place. The fact that we could, in theory, bring the game that everyone wants without the added on stuff that would ruin the game, that’s something we’d be proud of.”

Fantastico Basically Pay2Win is much more accepted in russia, (the plebs get to play for free and the rich get to feel more important) In the US pay to win would damage Halos IP.

I traveled to the future once.  Microsoft was still there.  They had a pretty big comeback.  They have one of the largest standing armies of the time (Most future corporations have their own military forces at the time I traveled to but Microsoft’s army is one of the largest).  They should be more scared of Microsoft than they realize!

So what exactly is Microsofts problem? Are they really deaf to fan pleas to make this available to all?

Walah spacetail EatCandy It would seem to fall on the people signing the contract to not agree to control things which they know cannot be controlled?

Also, Green Arrow / Master Chief mashup would be awesome / hilarious.

Walah It would be more accurate to say they gave a donation, and someone figured out how to make everyone get the same donation amount without taking any additional money from them. Which sounds pretty awesome to me.
