To those unsure about what it is, today is basically a day in which players have agreed NOT to play MW3 at all as a form of protest. I don't know the details, but I'm assuming their goal is to make IW feel forced to "fix" their game by getting as many players as possible to participate.
So let's try and have a reasonable discussion about this topic. Some questions to consider: Will the Blackout change anything? How many players do you think will participate? What does IW have to say about this blackout? Will you be participating and why or why not?
Personally, I probably won't be online today, but that's only because I'm usually out on the weekends. If I were to stay home, I would NOT be participating in the blackout because I don't think it will accomplish anything. It seems kind of stupid to me, considering tomorrow everything will return to normal. It seems to me like the equivelant of workers going on a strike for one day, then returning to work the next day.
