DICE And EA Games Made One Of The Most Beloved FPS Ever; But Its Glitches Are Killing EA Stocks

You all know me. I’m one of the most vocal gamers in the world. Perhaps many have ‘googled’ my name next to Battlefield and DICE in the past and seen my history with the company and their sometimes false and misleading advertising. This passion on reporting about their games comes from the fact that I myself am a Battlefield fan – who guessed it? Since Battlefield 1942 I haven’t missed a beat yet, and yet I was the first to call them out on what I viewed as a string of shoddy releases.

However, I’m about to celebrate my birthday in a few days and the item I’m most excited about treating myself with is Battlefield 4 on the next-generation platform. All of the glitches have not stopped my renewed optimism for the series, knowing that DICE has done something impressive and special with their next-generation iteration of BF. Unfortunately, EA Games and DICE are having a hard time getting their many, many glitches and issues fixed for Battlefield 4. Their stock values are suffering from this. As a gamer I am prepared to bear with them while this time of moaning continues onward. I am hoping for the best and I am rooting for DICE. Perhaps the most unlikely gamer to be rooting for a company that has gone out of their way in the past to talk smack about me in the public spectrum.

What is it about gamers and being abusive to developers anyways? Oh yeah, we covered that yesterday in a massive article (featuring indie dev Gabby Taylor).

The bottom line is this – EA Games and DICE have had a lot of patience from fans with these glitches and patches and have even announced they will no longer develop DLC until the game is fixed, but the time is running out and the clock is ticking. I’m not the only one who still hasn’t booted up the game yet. It’s the holiday season. This is the time for DICE to make or break themselves with fixing these problems in terms of a large wave of people about to flood their servers (or cry trying). Let’s all join together and hope they can pull it off as BF4 has become easily one of the most loved shooters of all time (despite what you may have heard last night on that corporate cheese show). Good luck guys, I know you can do this.

  • As a huge fan of bf and all of its iterations all I can say is with all the gliitches it did not even deserve a nomination for game of the year or shooter of the year just like Skyrim didn’t deserve it cause a game of game of the year caliber should not be broken
