Bean does Boycott mean that it's ok for Management, General store (or w/e analogy you want to use) to nuke the entire store just get that 1 new product on the shelf?
@ a time when lux has a very reduced player pool, rather than try to retain & attract new players you just poop on all the old ones that LOVE the store or map for what it is & the way it is or was... Then force them to play in hosts that they are not interested in trying or exploring.
I said Boycott Bio because the players 3-4 years ago there were very toxic & the mods really didn't care to enforce rules then or show up to moderate, just to ban when more than 2 players complain about player X. I have always enjoyed other maps, It's why I loved playing the MotW. If you read real carefully you'll also see that nowhere did I say "STOP hosting bio forever & F all the old luxtopians who actually ENJOYED playing there."
Screw the MotW's absurd bonus, host CLASSIC, IRE, RE2, MOTW, Deux(no bio) & Bio deux extreme with a Unified rankings system & you might start to get more than 21 games in a day... or more than 2400 in a month...

The something that hasn't been tried is now being tried."
Congrats on becoming a lux forum necromancer; what with all your raising of dead threads.
The problem isn't the cliques of luxtopia or the multiple communities that once existed, the problem is that players are now being forced to play on the 3 Maps of the week or deal with w/e clever tweak dustin or you make to the once established ranking systems with & without their flaws or merits. Without much notice or explanation to luxtopians old & new. I loved that luxtopia once had MULTIPLE FH hosts of varied maps at almost any time of the day or night. Now in this ghosttown you're super lucky to get a FH.

My goal wasn't to end bio forever or alter luxtopia, my goal then was to bring back MotW or Re2 or any fun hosts like the Winner's Pick (<------- Which is sorely missed by many old skool luxers)
You might love kiwi's & Bacon but the next person might hate them, they shouldn't be forced to eat a kiwibacon sundae because it's what you think is the best or what YOU enjoy consuming or doing with your time.

Apathy, Toxic players & now unstable changes to once established systems of luxtopia are what have brought lux this low. Goodluck digging it out of the very very deep ditch it's in now...
