I'm sure there must be people who subscribed just to get this to happen.
Did any of the subscription stuff actually happen as advertised in the end? The bombcast didn't end up getting split up, the World Tour got dropped, the Happy Hour stuff didn't stay member-exclusive... did the old videos end up getting HD'd? I have no idea.
I personally don't care about any of those things (and most of those decisions were ultimately right), but you know, be smarter about this stuff before announcing it so you don't have to keep backing out of it.
It was always up in the air whether or not they would actually go through with it, and Dave even said the idea was just one of those silly drunken rants that makes it to the next morning. Plus, the odds of them making it to my state were extremely unfavorable so I personally never got my hopes up about it.
Maybe I'll just have to settle for buying Dave a beer if he makes his way over here to Maryland for Christmas or something
Getting people to sign up just to see some internet dudes appear in your country always sounded a bit silly to me. Glad they thought about it again and realised the nonsense. They should still check out other countries when they get the chance though, but in a more realistic scale.
I would have gained no benefit from it since I live in the US and not any of the places they'd visit. I felt the money would have been much better used on the site to benefit all. But I said nothing because I'm privileged to have access to them at any PAX or when I drive to San Francisco and stare at their offices through my binoculars. So I'm both happy it was canceled and sorry for people who live far away and can't join in the fun.
