    Surprisingly accurate depiction of EA marketing tactics.

    I especially liked the sleek execution of the video.

    Probably because EA bullied DICE into scamming Battlefield fans by forcing out a "COD Killer" FPS that relied too much on unlocks and annoying bullshit like external multiplayer access, badly made netcode, broken promises, zero modability (along with a bullshit argument for such) and crippling release bugs.

    Also, the majority of the playerbase are children whose concept of balance is "If my gun can't kill someone faster than their gun, their gun is OP."

    I thought so too, but maybe it's because I sucked at it. And it was grindy.

    I find the origin part true even thought everyone knows steam is better they yet install and use origin.

    Also the part where developers pay reviewers is true.

    I find it hilarious that EA uses the excuse "our tools for frostbyte 2 are so complicated, no modtools"
    And most people actuall believe that.

    Press A to add bloom
    Press R to add lights
    Press S to increase lights to maximum
    Press E to add lens flare.

    Way to complicated indeed...

    Actually the argument wasn't that they are too complex for modders to use. But in the state they are now (mostly server based, dealing with full bakes as opposed to small local based bakes only) would make them almost impossible to move in to a decent local based format which would allow their use on a modders machine.

    The second argument was, that they used multiple third party SDK's which have to be licensed and couldn't be bundled with the mod tools.

    I actually find this quite easy to believe. Considering what a lot of mod tools look like.

    Nice video, Although I kind of expected a pirate ship at one point.

    But maybe that applies more to another company.

    I thought it was a fun and well made game. I won't give it 10/10, but it kept me entertained. I think people are giving certain games too much hate simply because it was published by EA.

    That's such a dumb arguement. Pirating it rather than paying money for it is just weak and deluded. You're still playing a stupid game, all that changes is that you are part of a statistic that companies use to justify intrusive DRM. If you object to what they're doing to the market which is entirely valid, show some moral integrity and boycott them.

    Multiplayer was entertaining for a while, Singleplayer and CO-OP felt like your average corridor shooter.
    I stopped playing it after i realized that the only thing i cared for was Leveling up and my K/D ratio.
    Might just be me, but the game felt to simple and to fast for my taste.

    Yeah, I didn't play the singleplayer because as you said it didn't feel like Battlefield at all. I'm not playing the game anymore, but when I did it was either on the old BF2 maps or the larger ones.

    I agree, although that level where you had to run up the hill to get into the building was bullshit.
