You'll be clapping if 600 people lose their jobs? Most of whom didn't have a say in the direction of the game? Just to spite some top dog studio heads who will have another job within a week?
Jesus fucking Christ.
Ultimately that's the saddest part in this. If EA gets no repercutions out of this, they would've come out scot free from insulting their audience by both PR and the quality of the product sold. If EA does get repercutions out of this, most of DICE's staff is eventually either going to go unnemployed or absorbed into other studios. People who most likely did not really agree with whoever decided this approach to marketing/game design was a good thing.
You know it deserves the GOTY.
