Forums - Gaming Discussion - EA/DICE mocks critics of BFV at launch party

The idea that people would be against including women or minorities for “realism” sake is stupid. It’s an action shooter where you do all sorts of unrealistic shit. Does it really matter if you do it as a man or a woman? A white dude or a black dude?

Mock away, DICE.

It has NOTHING to do with including women or minorities in the game, but yeah, please don't stop acting like petulant children, it'll steer even more people away from ever buying EA games again. Get woke, go broke. 

And no, it wasn't due to broken logarithm. The fact that DLC is censored while free DLC isn't is living proof, censoring software doesn't work like that.

gamers sure do find the stupidest things to get upset about so what if there's females in a ww2 game

Uh, breh, you’re clearly not paying attention. Much like Gamergate was actually about ethics in game journalism, this is about historical accuracy! When you watch WW2 In Color on the History Channel you’ll see all the same stuff you see in Battlefield games. Magic health regeneration, infinite ammo, toppling buildings, hundreds of respawns. But now you can do all of that as a woman! Inaccurate DICE, unrealistic!

One of my great great uncles died in WW2. I tried to replicate his death in Battlefield but it didn’t work out. I was able to take a chopper, fly it above an enemy chopper, then jump out of my chopper. Just like he did, I then pulled out some C4 while freefalling and I threw it on the enemies chopper and detonated it. I was right by the blast but was able to regen health. I then caught up to my falling chopper and got back in it. Just like my ancestor though, I jumped back in too late and couldn’t get enough lift on my chopper and it blew up on impact. However while my great uncle died and stayed dead forever, I was revived by a medic with a magic defibrillator! I walked away in game scratch free. #realism

Much like with Gamergate, these fools try to hide their issues with women behind other issues. Here it’s “historical accuracy” in a franchise that has never ever been historically accurate. Their problem is there are women and minorities, two thirds of the GOP Trifecta of Evil, the third of course being immigrants.

Norwegian saboteurs did their part to destroy heavy water that the Nazis were producing for nuclear weapons. This game removes the brave males many who died and lost limbs to inset 2 women. So I think dice are history challenged.

That’s pretty insulting actually. But you can expect anything with EA.

I agree the PR was bad but this situation still boggles my mind that people would complain over meaningless things like this(don't take this as me defending EA's bad PR but the fact it was ever a complaint to begin with.)

Imagine EA/Dice was a restaurant chain, and imagine Battlefield is their main go to item, a big juicy burger. Now if you the customer base, really like burgers, and theirs are by far the best, if they decided to change the type of meat itself, or the recipe, and those burgers tasted horrible going forward, should people not complain? If they didn't complain, you would have to assume that many would stop coming to that restaurant chain, and that franchise would then wonder what happened, and would have to go out of their way to find out it was the new meat in their burgers that people didn't like, and they just never said anything.

If you went to that restaurant with someone like one my friends in particular, or my old man, they would tell you to just shut up and eat it, it's just a burger. Should people just eat anything regardless of how it tastes to them? It's one thing if your starving and have nothing to eat and no other options, but when you have plenty, who's going to eat something gross when they could have something else that tastes better from another franchise, even if it's not the very best?

I don't think the way the fans handled BFV was wrong or in poor taste for the most part. The reason things got out of hand is because you have a tonne of customers telling the restaurant chain that their new version of the go to burger sucked and they were told to either shut up and eat it or go elsewhere, and they went elsewhere. As a business they have a choice, just like the customers do. Either they keep the new way of doing things while losing customers but hopefully gaining some new ones in the meantime, go back to the old way of doing things sooner than later and regain most of those customers, or decide to sell both and offer more choice overall.

Very rarely have I been flabbergasted by a comment  wow is all I can say

On one hand i hate that devs give up their artistic freedom to be more inclusive on that reason alone, on the other i still don't understand why is such a big deal that are women on battlefield.

Gamers, they accuse Dice of bending over to SJW agenda, but on the other hand they are trying to force their criticism on the devs to bend to their will, by criticise their options instead of criticise the game.

I'm always behind true freedom and let devs do what they want, even if their direction comes from a source i despise, i will not criticise and just skip the game if the game ends up flat out bad as a whole... There are plenty of other games to play...

This game of throwing arguments back and forward just makes people bitter and mad and rarely accomplish something meaningful imo.
