Funny to see a company whose shares lost almost 50% of their value, and whose game apparently sold 50% less than the previous one, still make fun of their fanbase.
Let's see if they keep doing it if their studio ends up firing 50% of the developers (I hope it won't happen, but they at least need to change their approach for the next one).

I actually think its kinda funny. EA is free to do whatever they want I guess.
In the end the games matter most and they will suffer if their games don't appeal to people. Seems like this game isn't reviewing particularly great though. Not sure what the sales will reflect in the end.
Its also possible the sales will see a decline because fatigue, maybe they didn't enjoy BF1, etc.

Well, that's just childish at this point.
You know it deserves the GOTY.

DICE, and EA by extension, desperately need some new PR consultants. For people who claim to combat marginalization, they seem awfully keen on marginalizing their own customer base. The age old technique of sweeping legitimate complaints and criticism behind troll comments and vitriolic stupidity stopped working a long time ago, their chance to rise above and focus on presenting and selling an actual, desirable entertainment product seems to have passed.
It's a shame, I've really enjoyed the BF series up until BF1, I spent countless hours at LAN meetings playing BF2, and BF 3 and 4 were among only a handful of titles I ever bothered playing online.
