I can think of few instances where a game developer has been in the eleventh hour of releasing the first major patch of their flagship franchise, only to release a survey to their community for some last minute direction. That’s what we’re getting from THQ though, and it’s pretty cool for the fans of the series. THQ just released a survey asking the community what their favorite part of UFC 3 is, what their gameplay habits are in the online community, and most importantly — the fate of ‘Simulation’ energy settings in ranked mode.
As you may have heard, we have street teams forming, people are getting the message and a difference is being made. In Connecticut we held a pro simulation settings rally (it was just Gary LaPlante) and other towns have showed interest in possibly acknowledging the importance that this survey holds. Guys, after legalizing MMA in New York, getting simulation energy settings in UFC 3 ranked matches is by far the second most important thing on an MMA fan’s agenda (for reference: Twitter bombing the UFC to bring back Tim Sylvia ranks 14th). Taking this survey can make that dream of simulation settings in ranked matches and more a reality.
We here at MiddleEasy are in tune with the 18-34 male demographic that THQ is asking for guidance from, and like you guys, we are also very disenchanted with voting for hope and change. Some of you may remember the ‘EA MMA Patch of Doom’ that dropped this time last year. Some of you may even play CounterStrike 1.6 still. We get it. However, we can’t let our clouded faith in the voting process stop us again; take the UFC Undisputed 3 survey and let’s make our dreams come true.
