Don't they also use Google Authenticator? I know Uplay does but I thought I set it up with Origin as well...

Lol@the EA hate. I wish I could be as cool as you guys.

Thank You for the condescending and marginalizing insult. Did you stop to think, for even just a moment, that perhaps the ill will toward EA is well earned? EA doesn't care about it's gaming base beyond the money they make.

Gaming isn't just a business. It's an art form and entertainment industry. It requires care and involvement, paying attention to your audience and their concerns.

It's retarded because this always worked fine. But now, after like 6 retries, I never got the verification code. Like, WTF...

Ah. That happened to me before and it was because their servers were down or something. I got a bunch of confirmation codes all at once. It was pretty annoying. It could be something else this time of course...

EA doesn't care about it's gaming base? So I guess all that time DICE LA put into BF4 in that last year before BF1 came out, with the CTE and the Community map project and all the other improvements was EA not caring right? I guess EA removing Premium from BFV after community backlash was them also not listening to the community.

Yeah, EA does scummy things. Every large publisher does. Just about the only exception to that rule in the gaming world is CDPR. Though when it comes to anti-consumer behavior, I'd argue that companies like Valve and Sony are far worse.

Nope, that was for money.

And they are easily in the top 3 worst offenders, if not number 1.

That is an assumption and opinion not supported by fact.

That is also an argument not supported by fact. While Valve and Sony are in it for the money, they both have the long term in mind. They actively seek to find and solve problems for customers and have made it a point to care about individual customer problems. EA does not.

Yea, if only they didnt make me their enemy with BF4, that would be great. :D

Nope, as someone said, not even for free.

There are still companies that do deserve gamers money, EA is definitely not one of them.

I paid $30 for Origin Access for 1 yr...BF1 is in the vault with 138 other games
That makes this a very good deal at $5...I think this is a very good deal for those with EA/Origin access and I think this is geared towards those people.
I'm not going to pick this up truth be told but I'm still going to give EA money in some other way because they are the best bang for your buck game service on PC.

EA has had some flops and yes they want your money and will go as far as the market will allow in order to get your money...Surprise!?

What money? They easily could have gone the route of BF3 or BC2 and provided less meaningful updates as the game got older. They were giving away the premium content as well so it's not like they were making money from those either. You could maybe argue that it was to build good faith for BF1 before launch but everyone in the community knew DICE LA and DICE Stockholm are very different studios.
"lexluthermiester said:

It's also so that they don't split up the community so that in the long run it could lead to more money. Every thing every company does is for money in the long run.
"lexluthermiester said:

Yeah. No. Companies like Comcast and Verizon are far worse.
"lexluthermiester said:

Lmao. You've got to be kidding me. You could search this very site for articles on Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard, Square Enix, Sony, Nintendo etc and you'll find complaints about everything from Denuvo to questionable practices regarding DLC.

Again, lmao. Valve cares about the individual customers? Have you seen Steam's mess of a store/client recently? Do you know they still don't have real-time customer support like most other companies (including EA)? You do know they added refunds after EA right? And Sony cares about the customers and the long-term? Like they care so much that they allow cross-play (they don't)? And let's not even talk about the hack...

But hey, keep hating EA for perceived transgressions while ignoring those of others. That myopic view can only lead to good things.

That "boycott EA just because it's EA" shit is just so childish. Come on, how many of you REALLY boycott Ubi just because they like to use their Uplay ALSO with Ubi games which are bought from Steam?

Yeah, I was first like WTF when Uplay wanted to install when I bought Far Cry 3, but then I was like ok, if it wants to install, then go ahead.. And after it installed I just played the game.

If I'd say something bad about EA, it's that about 3-4 years ago Origin wasn't that great, but that didn't make me to not play their games. Was Steam perfect way ago? Not. Is it still perfect? Not. Do people use it? Yes. It is (I mean Origin) just a damn platform, and with it, games work fine. Why anyone should have that "fk that because EA" attitude and not play good games?

Just my 2 cents here... I'll go play some damn PS1 games, no digital platforms there.. :D

I'm pretty sure most of the hate towards EA is targeted at their business practices in general, not just the client, same for Ubisoft and their attacks on PC gamers from years ago.

The EA hate is strong in this thread. I mean, I'd take a dump on the front door of EA HQ too, but I've got to admit, I'm considering pocketing the game for a measly fiver...

If you love or don't love EA, for $5 people it is worth it for the single player camping alone!

Life is to precious to harbor hate, and we ALL know that is true. :toast:

I don't particularly hate or love EA since I don't care for most of their games, but I gotta hand it to DICE and Battlefield. It's the best MP shooter I've played in terms of graphic, sound and servers. I've tried CODs, Overwatch, R6 Siege or even PUBG and they just aren't my cup of tea. I'm more of a single player guy and play MP only occasionally, but BF1 is the only MP game I still play almost everyday.

BTW I got BF1+premium when it's on 50% sale and I'd say I have no regret. Anyway if you want to pass this game for whatever reason I won't stop you, but if you are on the fence and wonder if $5 worth it, I'd say you definitely won't disappoint. After all, I believe we all have wasted more than $5 on worse games than BF1 at some point in our life, right?

I've wasted far greater amounts than $5 at <insert fast food place here>. Sometimes this even causes physical "discomfort"! o_O

Those are not gaming companies. Let's not compare oranges to apples.

As for the rest of your comments, if you like EA feel free to buy from them.

Hate is too strong a word. Dislike with a passion is a better way of putting it. Unwilling to tolerate shady, greedy crap is another.

I bit. Don't mind Origin. I do mind that EA has destroyed the Sim City, Command & Conquer, Medal of Honor, and Need for Speed (somewhat) series for me, though...

BF1 is their latest game in the BF franchise and they already giving it away "for a fiver" even before the next game hit the market.

EA knows the BF1 servers are packed with cheaters, they dropped the price so they can fill up the server with some new fresh meat to put in the cheaters cross hairs.

Cheating snipers with OP rifles just destroys the game for every one, will be the same in BF V.

Everybody says there is noting to be done about cheater using ESP radar "not aimbot" just to se all player anywhere.

THIS IS BULLSHIT, the cheat code must use the graphics card with an overlay to let the cheater see the extra graphics to spot all players.

Game manufacturers could work with nVidia and AMD to detect this with code in the graphic card and the cheat manufacturer could do noting to counter this.

Ask your self why they are not doing this, just because they calculated how many millions they are making of of cheater and don't want to lose that revenue stream.

No, WW1.. Battlefield 1 is one of the WW1 games. Plenty of WW2.

But I still won't play it.
