The mess does not get fixed in Battlefield 4…
To be honest, Battlefield 4 is a great game but technically it is a buggy piece of software that has been rushed out by a money-hungry publisher called Electronic Arts. A little bit more time and the developer DICE would have been able to create a really amazing and technically perfect game. But it didn´t happen as EA wanted to publish the game before Activision´s Call of Duty Ghosts.
The problem is not that we all here bought a game with bugs. Many game releases come with some bugs as the mass of players get the hands on it to find hidden bugs and the issues will be fixed soon. The problem is that we bought the game for $80 or even $150 with premium and that the game is completely unplayable and unfinished. It is another league and most of the time companies who cheat this way, would be called scammer. Yes this is my opinion… Battlefield 4 is a huge scam by EA and many players have been taken in. As said we talk about an unfinished $80 to $150 product here.
Friends and me showed patience but now after some weeks we gave up. We do not trust in BF4 anymore. There were too many errors, bugs and technical problems. Constant crashes, disconnects and shitty netcode lag just to mention a few problems that annoyed us and still annoy us all.
But now it is like it is. EA has taken our money and now they assume that we wait until they fix the mess of this game. When will it happen? Many patches have been published and it gets even worse. Should we still wait? Playing a beta or alpha test with costs? The answer is short… we won´t.
Seven friends and me decided that this game is still unplayable and that it makes no sense to hope that it will change soon. It´s a mess and a real scam.
Like a friend said “Fuck you EA, fuck you and your shareholders”. I just can agree. The whole gaming industry has become a complete joke. Creativity and creating great games does not count anymore. Only greed does still count. That is the only result we can see here. It´s not about the game or player anymore, it is about money and stocks and we are the cow which becomes milked. That is hardcore capitalism that produces this kind of crap software.
No wonder that EA got the “worst company of america” award several times in a row. EA you earned the award, really. If seven of seven players in my clique gave up on Battlefield 4, I wonder how many players gave up on this garbage game globally. I guess a lot.
So let´s see how long it will take until game is finally playable. At the moment, we all waited enough. If there is one company that I wish would go bankrupt, then it is Electronic Arts. It would really make room for more creative and trustful heads.
