I have to agree that trying to get CoD and Battlefield fans to support a new TS game would be nigh impossible. They hate their fellow CoD/Battlefield gamers (judging by the way they talk to each other online), so there's no way they're going to support people who want a game that is the polar opposite of the garbage they play. My guess is that if TS fans brought all this latest news to the attention of CoD/Battlefield fans, the CoD/Battlefield fans would just go around doing everything they can to bash the TS series (despite having most likely never even played it) simply for the sake of being rotten. Then again, maybe I'm just excessively cynical and stereotype people have have bad tastes in videogames just a bit too much.
I say give PostwarOrphan's idea a try. Getting information in just the right spot on the internet and branching out to people who may have little to no previous knowledge of the information can have amazing results.
Just realized I hadn't read the latest posts in PostwarOrphan's thread. I see we already got attention from someone of importance. Neat!
