Just contact the BBB and get a refund, you'll lose that account though I believe as refunds are against their ToS

Until you're down with that, I suggest you work on your phobia of advertisements. ACTUALLY, that goes for everyone decrying this as the worst thing ever.

Funnily enough, I live in a city of 100,000 people, work like a normal person, watch plenty of TV and movies, etc and I rarely see ads.
Most of the ones on PC I either use Adblock or donate to remove and most of the RL ones aren't as in your face and are easier to completely ignore, this is in your face and essentially is forcing you to acknowledge it. I'm one of those people who'd happily have billboards, etc in game (It actually adds realism IMO) but this is just dumb and makes me want to play the game or see the movie less.

Kind of off topic

In South Korea they dont have ads during a show, they have ads in between shows for maybe 5-10 minutes then next show, thought it was quite odd when I was there earlier this year lol

BF4 places ads in game. Many do not like the increase in ads placement including me.

This isn't an argument about steam vs origin. This is about seeing ads in a game.


Thats funny not one person here has said that. everyone is on the I hate EA band wagon. What you say makes sense but its by no means what others have been saying.

EA owns and runs Dice...thus EA told Dice or allowed Dice to put the adds in the loading screen. Thus any hate is properly directed at EA.

And this is a pretty big deal...this isn't just in-game ads...this is ads on a loading screen. Meaning that if the technology and/or technique was developed to reduce or even eliminate the loading the screen...well, you would not be seeing it used. I'd even expect there to be nearly no effort to ever reduce the loading time with the possibility of it being purposely extended. Show in game ads on billboards and such...good, I like that as it ads substance to the game as long as it wasn't over done. Show an ad pop up after I've shut the game down...OK...I can live with that and I might even click on one if it interested me. However, once you start messing with the actual flow of a game...you open up a whole can of bad potential and even if developers swear up and down they are not artificially extending the load times...how could we believe them?

From the sounds of it, this is only on consoles, but doesn't seem to be every where. In fact I haven't ruled it out as a hoax...no one I know has seen an ad on the PS4, 360, or PC...I don't know any one with a Xbox One, but I doubt this would be limited just to the Xbox One.

Okay, I have to ask this again, because I don't know if some of you are actually arguing from a position of knowledge or some other motivation; I played BF4 pretty much ALL WEEKEND and I didn't see an ad at all. Not one. Where are they suppose to be?? On the loading screen?

I'm asking sincerely, because, I'm not seeing it. Not saying it doesn't exist, but that's pretty strange.

I would say I'm thinking of the ole "mountain out of mole hills" line.

The screenshot in the source is from a PS4 and I've seen people on Reddit saying that it was only on consoles. However, this weekend I was at some one's place who has a PS4 and BF4 and we didn't see any movie ads on the loading screen.

Unless this is regional, this could have been a Reddit hoax that made it to epic proportions. Though even if it is...like all of the EA hoaxes, the real problem is that people were so easy to believe it. Like it was something completely plausible or even expected out of EA. That right there is a worse problem then anything else considering how many games are coming out with the EA stamp on them these days.

I could see adds on billboards while in game, depending on settings, that would be classy. This just sucks and is just another way for EA to milk that cow! Personally I wouldn't buy or go see any movie advertised here...

Same deal in Hong Kong
Its amazing how much more content they can broadcast on a channel when they dont really have to worry about putting ad breaks in every 5 minutes

I feel the same. Though i've found it quite surprising how many people are still on board with EA/DICE/BF. I'm done with them (as far as BF is concerned), less there is a momumentous improvement and i catch something on sale.
