[Examiner] EA's desire to win over Call of Duty fan's knows no boundaries - Page 7

post #61 of 92
EA is never going to win over fans from COD unless they have a bunch of cheap perks that can help you kill people easily.

"Call of Duty commentators"

I don't think there is anything else in the world and on youtube that I hate more.

Wait, so people are upset a company paid (in some way) for advertisement?

Is this a (or the) new thing we're supposed to be upset about as gamers now? Companies can't buy advertising?

Really?

Were supposed to cry because as well as Battlefield fan sites and commentators getting support, they're also targeting a huge portion of FPS players by advertising on COD commentator channels?

I also like how the article starts off by trying to assert that EA are ignoring their fans by working with cod commentators, then ends the article with a line about how they are also working with Battlefield commentators and fan sites. Awesome consistency there. Not reaching at all.

In summary:

-giving another entity a form of payment for advertising your product is bad and makes you a bad person.

-advertising an FPS by targeting FPS players via popular youtube channels geared towards FPS games is "obnoxious" and makes you a bad person.

-editorials are news

Sure.

I'm just gonna go read one of the other threads about the other things OverlyComplainingNetwork.net is supposed to be balling about.

I've never understood the need to devolve everything into humongous clones of other things.

Take for instance, in this case, making battlefield (even more) like CoD. If I wanted to play CoD, I'd play CoD! I wouldn't go buy a DIFFERENT game and then whine about it until they made it more like CoD. Needless to say, I was rather disappointed when BF3 was more CoD like than BC2 (which was already bad enough, but at least it didn't tout itself as a sequel to battlefield proper!).

Similarly, If I wanted to play WoW, I'd buy re-sub WoW. When I bought GW2 it's because I wanted more of GW1's unique flavor, and was rather dissapointed with it being a pretty skin pack of a dumbed-down version of WoW.

Then there's Tribes Ascend. A game franchise that has always thrived on large open landscapes, high skill ceilings, unique and difficult weapons, and a plethora of mods... and what do they do with it? Give it a bunch of run-of-the-mill sub machine guns, prohibit mods, and reduce map and team size to a fraction of what they once were to appeal to CoD players. Guess what, CoD players are busy playing CoD. People who play Tribes, play it for Tribes!

The list could go on forever...but then people always just brush it off and say I'm weird.

Really? There's actually more predictable and therefor more skill in COD than in BF3. You might hate me for saying this and I know I'm attacking core BF values, but vehicles, suppression, and client side hit all pretty much remove any opportunity for skill to be a factor.

Idiots. Just like they said BF3 was going to wipe the floor against COD when it came out. Sales was not even close.
