I can't wait for the day they go bankrupt.

Why hope for that? That means people losing jobs etc;

But then those people can get picked up by better, much less smiley developers.



Some days I just blow up.

I wonder if people understands that when stock prices go down like this, its actually real people, like you and me, who put our money in investment funds or banks who then invest in those companies. Its not good that a public company suffers or goes bankrupt. There are thousands jobs involved.

Anyway I still think the game will selll ike hotcakes and the stocks are going to increase again.

It means less competition in game publishing, less money for development, etc.  I hope for EA to learn from their mistakes, and contribute positively to gaming's future.  





I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

This is interesting because Nintendo lost $2.42B in stock value over the last 2 days. As I said, as much as we want lootboxes to die, it doesn’t mean much.



EA's done extremely well over the past 5 years. This drop isn't a significant problem, and I think it's largely unrelated to Battlefront 2.

For the record, EA's stock has fallen by 8% in a month four times over the past two years. In June 2017, December 2016, February 2016, and November 2015. It hasn't stopped EA from doing very well - the stock value is up 54%, and revenues consistently increasing. In fact, everything points to FY 2018 being as good as 2016 and 2017, which are the best years for the company yet.

While there might be reason to dislike their recent practices, there are no real signs that it's affecting them negatively financially. It's merely a continuation of what's been a massive success.



Happy day



Wow, EA is down... to its value of early July this year
