The Feud Continues: Unofficial MW3 website redirects to Battlefield3 website

 

It seems the FPS supernerds of the world will forever be caught in the tired, old game of King of the Castle. Pretty inevitable, pretty obvious. Especially when it comes to Call of Duty VS Battlefield.

ZZzzZzz. . .

Activision (MW3) has filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum and wants transfer of ownership of a domain name. It seems that a very popular unofficial/parody Modern Warfare 3 website is redirecting itself to the official Battlefield 3 site (UPDATE: it is currently “under siege” and not redirecting anymore).

Activision is assuming that this is in retaliation to issuing the unofficial site a take-down notice. They previously sent the notice because they claimed the site  infringed on copyright laws, seemed to be making commercial use of the domain name (with ads)  and also because they probably just didn’t want shit to be leaked or talked about (made fun of) by these lifeless megadweebs, months before the games release in November of this year.

Boring. . . Funny “retaliation”,  although I’m sure Activision wouldn’t give a shit about the redirecting if the domain name wasn’t modernwarfare3.com and clearly popular because of it, but who isn’t tired of talking and hearing about these two games in the same sentence. . .
