Oh for God's sake I thought they were going to make it like battlefront 2! What is wrong with EA? It's not like they are short of cash the game costs enough as it is.

A discord server I frequent has got a lot of stuff on this. For instance, this is going around

Which leads us to this

Also, people have been checking to see how long it would take to unlock everything without paying extra money.

And the whole "death threats" thing is even being called into question.

Also, damn the 950 pixel limit. It would be nice if the board would automatically resize if too big, providing a link to the full-sized image if it did that. I know there are boards that can.

I've been following that thread for a hot minute now, just to watch as the number of down votes keeps going up. I spotted someone with the username "created_just_to_downvote_EA" or something like that on there as well. Vader seems to be the character everyone talks about, and people are saying it would take 40 hours of grinding just to get Vader alone.

I mean, sweet shit, most people are probably not even going to put half that amount of time into the game, and yet it would take that kind of grind? O_o

I'll never forgive EA for what it did to Dead Space, but this just screams that EA needs to die, and die now.
plz don't report me to da cops for saying this!

I still haven't forgiven them for Westwood and Command and Conquer. CNC 4 was a disgrace and it seems like EA knows how to do these days is make mediocre products that only paid off reviewers will enjoy. From what I saw of Generals 2, it was probably going to be their response to Starcraft 2 being a competitive who can click the fastest type deal.

I used to enjoy the Battlefield series, removing mod support for all future titles after BF2 killed that one for me. Also how some titles are just made for the money and quickly abandoned in favor the of latest cash grab at the time. BF hardline could have easily been a mod, however that game seems dead and forgotten just like BF4(another rushed out mess). The straw that broke the camels back was taking down BF2 and BF2142 revive. I played a bit of BF1 and found it bland.

As far as battlefront goes, I didnt mind it being a 1942 clone with starwars skinned on. The battlefield style gameplay worked and the design was better than what we had now. The graphics might be crap in addition to the lack of modern hardware support, net code could probably use improvement as well, however the two new ones only seem to take away rather than add on to what already exists. 64 player games got down graded to 40 player games, the first new one took classes away and introduced a poorly balanced unlock system with arcade power ups. The new sort of brought back classes, but introduced a p2w/random tf2 style drop system. Also the maps are mostly a rip off the payload game mode from TF2 with linear maps full of choke points.

Also I havent forgiven them for securom, day one dlc, always online sim city, linear downgraded for console crysis 2, ME3/Stanley Woo, spore, etc

The problem is it’s not a Labour of love it’s a cash cow it might look good but they will make nearly exactly the same game for the same price a year from now.

EA has been doing this shit for years, to problem is, is that gamers and fanboys have an attention span of (a metaphorical) goldfish...

Remember what EA done to the Simpsons and Dungeon master?
EA fanboys sure don't!

Remember when EA forced in game microtransactions into Dead Space 3, ruining the setting?
EA fanboys sure don't!

Remember when that added Loots-boxes to Battlefield 3 and 4?
EA fanboys sure don't!

Remember when EA forced you online with Sim City 5 and rendered it unplayable?

Remember when EA Forced Sims 4 to cut content and sell it off as day one DLC?

Or when they tried to make the new Command and Conquer game FTP, and when met with opposition killed the game off entirely?


Because EA faboys don't!!!!


Fuck, top of Reddit gaming is literally "EA is fucking us up the arse!!!1!!! Buy this game instead" while pointing at Titan Fall 2, you know, a game PUBLISHED BY EA!


I'll give it 3 days before the aplolgism kicks in, much like Bethesda, much like Gearbox studios, much Activation, much like the many MANY times AAA companies have fucked consumers up the arse. They'll come back, they blindly fucking praise these companies like they did before, respout 5 year old memes, beg for remasters and suck giant corporate dick like they normally do. Then it's back to square one, and as such the cycle continues... AAA companies continue to add shitty practices, the internet continues to moan and cry about it and games will still continue to buy the game in droves...

I never understand progressions to unlock characters or weapons in multiplayer games other than narrative purposes
I remember back in Battlefield 2, weapon unlocks were just side dishes, barely makes you a stronger player (other than the sniper rifle)... and then bf3 and 4 came around with their stupid progressions
and now this battlefront 2, they want you have a sense of achievement. Dude, I toil enough in daily life, i dont want to toil more in a video game....
