Down With Pinon!
Pinon makes our game crash, makes us look at a ♥♥♥♥ing MOTD that cuts into game time, has too long of a spawn time, wants us to give them our E-Mail so they can spam it, and it is a horrible ♥♥♥♥ing host. If you hate Pinon then sign this peition and hopefully something can be done about them.

On one hand, NOTURBLOG...
But on the other, I have yet to find anyone supportive of Pinion...

I dont know what "NOTURBLOG" is, but yes Pinon is a pretty bad host and it would be nice if Valve took some attention to it or Pinon does something to make their hosting service more likeable and they should fix the issue where people crash when they join a Pinon server.

Yeah O-Pinion takes things a tad far with the adverts and even to the point of distributing spyware over the advert (of which I've had the displeasure of having to remove).

I often wonder how many people actually click the link or give them thier E-Mail to get "free swag".

They would be equilly effective and far less annoying if they just advertised without forcing extra respawn time and slots for youtube adverts. I personally don't like being forced to turn of MOTD's or forced to watch a CoD advert.

Basically it means, "Stop posting your life story, we hate you and don't care."

I like Pinion.

Pinion hosts a lot of servers, and while not everyone (or noone on that matter) likes Pinion, the vast majority of the TF2 community doesn't care at all about Pinion and they don't get crashes like the minority do. And as people say 'There's a favorites tab for a reason'.

Agreed its f-ing rediculous! Especialy when you have to wait 30 or even 40 seconds to start playing.

Speak for yourself and others in your minority.
I almost never experience pinion nor do I ever have any problems when I do.
DeadlyGrilledCheese Mar 17, 2013 @ 5:54pm 
i hate that so much its the most annoying thing ever...besides lag

If you don't like Pin on's maybe you should buy some Clipons or something instead? we can't help you.

You may continue is 30 seconds or stay tuned in for the Pinion Pot O' Gold. *30 seconds later* *Joins team* *Chooses class* 2 seconds later "YOUR TEAM LOST! Blu captured all control points"

Anyways, whats so bad about Pinion? I haven't had a crash since Pyromania, and I disabled Pinion adverts using a simple bind. Also, spawn time isn't affected by pinion, thats the server.

Occasionally a box will pop up in the middle of gameplay which kinda sucks though.

Ah, the sadfully less intelligent part of our community. I would like to inform everyone right now : Valve has absolutely nothing to do with Pinion. No matter what you do Valve has no authority whatsoever to take down Pinion on the servers you frequent. Pinion is in no way, shape or form, related to Valve. Don't like Pinion? Complain straight to them.

I know but I didnt set up that petiton I just found it on a random post and thought I should share due to me disliking pinon. I know Valve has nothing to do with Pinon but what I want is for pinon to fix some of the issues that has been annoying the hell out of the gamers that join their servers.
