So prepare yourself to do a Christmas without playing.
Nadeo have a meeting today, that's why they can reply now ;) Hope they'll come back later and answer some of the questions

you should have built this game for the reason to make all these young and old people happy with your game!! and only in second part for making money.
But with this initiative you improved the opposite.
This sucks.
Yes, but in the real world, companies make games to make money. A company like Nadeo then invests that money in making new games, and the cycle goes on. Trackmania is not a university project; it is a real game made by a real company to make real money.

HM... I just understood the problem Nadeo is having. After playing the game for 5 years, I've not really been to the trackmania.com-website that often, but visiting I can't find a way to buy Trackmania United Forever. I've looked at play.com where I've bought 3 copies earlier, and the only thing they have now is TMU (not F). I know you can upgrade, but that's another point.

Product, Price, Place, Promotion is simple marketing. Without a place to buy the software you go broke. No matter how much promotion, low price or good product, you're lost without a place to sell your product. Not to be rude, but to see that an online-game should lack a place to sell their product is WEIRD.

ps. I know where to find it, I'm just saying it's weird not even having a link on their own website...

The most stupid decision I've ever seen!
Nadeo attacked players of TMNF, whose are playing game, which is created to FREE PLAYING! Forcing players to buy TMU is not fair!
Cause of you incompetent decision many teams will dissapear, new players won't come to TrackMania world, cause the have no place for normal playing, only some shitty FreeZone servers!
Personally I wanted to buy TMU. But after 9.12.2010, when Nadeo decided to destroy whole game, I won't buy it. You has given a prefect present for christmas, you can be proud!

And what happened to the christmas present they needed in the meantime when they provided you with so much fun?

Complain when the ship goes down, after not rowing a paddle me thinks! (least uber revolutionery gekko has invested and has a right to complain a bit, yes i do understand Gekko vaguely :D ).

lol, You can clearly tell by the way this desiscion is explained by Nadeo/Florent that *someone* is under high pressure from someone higher up in the system.

This decicion seems very short sighted with very little thought behind it, be careful Nadeo of the long-term damage it can do to TM.

What about putting the FreeZone server at the end of the list for TMUF-players?
