Why should I have to go through extra steps to play the game? Why should I have to perform certain tasks to speed up the process of playing the game when the original way that has been done for many years and is still done by all other developers is far superior, faster, and more convenient? Why does my web browser have
to be part of the process? Why can't I just double-click the game icon, choose my server, and play? Battlelog is cool if you care about that sort of thing, but EA decided to go the extra mile by making it a mandatory step(s) in the process of launching the game which is unnecessary, bulky, and downright stupid.
The reason EA is still in business is because gamers just sit back and take the abuse and deal with the bad ideas these developers implement. If more people voiced their opinions and spoke with their wallets we wouldn't have stuff like this forced on us, we wouldn't have to add battlelog to our bookmarks bar to reduce the steps required to play bf3/4, we wouldn't have to load origins to play the game or add origins to our startup folder to avoid having to run it manually, etc. Stop settling for what they think we want and need and tell them what you actually want and need.
I'm not one of those gamers. If EA puts more steps between me and the game and makes my web browser mandatory for launching/playing then I won't give them my money because I refuse to reward them for counter-productive and inconvenient ideas. If EA gives BF4 the traditional system of launching the game and puts the server browser back in it I'll buy that game and play the crap out of it AND use battlelog for what it was intended to be used for...tracking and showing off your stats.
