[DS] EA Removes Content From Battlefield 3′s Aftermath/End Game. - Page 14

I have played BF3 for 104 hours as of today. I paid $60 for the game when it came out (launch day) and then $50 for the Premium. That's $110 bucks which means it cost me just over ONE DOLLAR per hour of pure entertainment. That is a great deal and many of you who moan about "not enough this" or "not enough that" really need to grow up. You guys are the types that complain about everything and look at the negative side of things.

If you take the 'glass is half empty' approach, you are setting yourself up for disappointment and that is nobody else's fault except your own. I agree some games are waste of money and I've felt cheated too having paid $60 for titles like Test Drive Unlimited 2 etc. I played that game for about 10 minutes and it has sat on my shelf for more than a year collecting dust. We all regret some decisions but you have to make the best of what you have. Merely venting frustrations for each and every thing, inevitable in life really, is a recipe for perennial dissatisfaction.

I give facts in why the game is inferior. Its lacking things that should be in a modern shooter Thats fact. "BF3 is like a car without power windows, A/C and it handles like a bag of cat boot" Thats opinion. Whats life got to do with a mediocre game? Dont ask why just comply? You accept what ever is given to you, Did you know karkand, aftermath, close quarters and endgame where all finished when BF3 was released? That you got half the game when you pre-ordered? And they know that people like YOU will not question, and pay up? Haha, I dont understand how your life rant pertains to people question the logic of EA.

And let me get this straight..... because we don't share your views on a game, we are wrong? ungrateful?

I played BF3 for a few months, it was good but BF2 was better; in fact, I've gotten more hours on TF2 than BF3, even when I was playing BF3 I was still playing more TF2 total. BF3 is hardly the best FPS.

I paid AU$90 for only the game itself, it is fun but like I said...BF2 was way funner; you miss out on a lot in BF3.

It does how ever have mainstream gamer, console easy mode rubbish. Health regen, No commanders, No radio chat, To spawn base capping to win the game, No scrolling text to notify those who need ammo or a res, No 6 man squads... again... BC3.... 4 man crap.... Sunlight flashlights, Half the game is DLC you have to pay another $50 for, NO SQUAD VOIP!!!!! WHO EVEN DOES THAT??!?!?! Team game with no voice? And for those who wish to argue "oh, voice is annoying" Need to go get a clue. Team games require communication. I have NEVER played or had interest in a FPS that had NO VOICE COMMUNICATION. "ohh, I have TS3 or vent, or mumble" NO YOU DONT Im not in your vent/ts you're not in mine...When you're standing in that door, and I can't get by I REALLY wish I had voip to ask you to move. Or when I need some ammo, I don't feel like chasing you down, and having to ask 30 times, get in front of you and shoot you to get an ammo drop. Same goes for medics. I do play with people in TS3, but it is KEY to have communication with others OUTSIDE of your TS3/vent/mumble
Man, this generation of gamers piss me off. You guys accept crap, and hand corrupt companies like EA your money. I'm a big fan of the series, I own every BF game to come to PC. And IMO, the series has been ruined.
Forgot to add this... BF3 HAS CLIENT SIDE CONSOLE HIT DETECTION WHY?! Why not server side like EVERY other game? Shoulders above anything my glass.

I agree with everything except about the Squad/ingame VOIP. I agree that it should be in BF3 but I have played BFV, BF2 and BC2 and never heard anyone use in game VOIP ever. The lack of any competition is the real reason why EA can do what they do. Now if there was another franchise out there that has good infantry, ground vehicle and air vehicle team based gameplay that is good maybe EA/Dice wouldnt do some of the things they do.

The most mature and sensible post I have seen on these forums for a while. I fear its probably too difficult for a lot of people who post on these forums to actually understand that this attitude would actually be beneficial to them. Hate and negativity is always the easier path for the lazy wink.gif

I actually gave him rep for that rant. I don't know why I even bothered opening this thread, I knew what would be inside and sure enough its the same mindless dribble as any other BF3/EA/Origin thread.

A question to you whiners, do you guys cry about every little minuscule and inconsequential thing in real life, or is that something you just do on the internet? Its a video game. Get a grip folks. You don't like it? Speak with your wallet.

Im really quite tempted to go for Premium...Vehicle warfare looks amazing and all my friends who do play bf3 (not many) have it and then I can play with them...Plus the next two DLCs coming up.

If you bought in early or can get it for a good price premium really isn't a bad deal. Especially since it doubles the multiplayer maps suite.
