Was curious as to when you lot are actually planning on responding to your community that you apparently "listen to" so intently?

If you had been listening I think you might have realised a few things:

1: your data is not nearly as important as what your players are saying!!

2: going radio silent and hoping this will just blow over will not work. Please tell us what the hell is going on regarding a fix or a full revert.

We paid good money for this game, some of us more than we should have. Your game is not free to play and therefore does not allow u to fundamentally change the UX so drastically on a whim.

We played this game as we were sold an idea of high attrition low TTK resulting in a more deliberate gameplay loop. That is NOT what this game is now.

It's time you start actually listening and it's also time u start saying the right things.

    Yeah. Radio silence seems odd.

    Probably best they do keep quiet as everything they are coming out with is the wrong thing to say. I don't ever remember a software developer being so disliked over the decisions they have made. It's almost the opposite of what many of the players want every time and you have to wonder is this intentional? The vitriol towards DICE is frightening. I'm not sure DICE will ever recover from this.

    They should charge extra to hold your hand.

    Not really. Every time they try to talk to this community it ends badly. 

    Only because they deliberately ignore us, and screw us over.

    All irrelevant legal talk removed from the thread. The thread was never about that and no reason to derail the thread into a lock.

    Come on, guys. DICE said that they would have an update about news about information about fresh insight about...

    [many thesaurus abuses later] ...about communication about ongoing issues about the game very soon! Be patient!

    the reason ''every time they talk to the community it ends badly'' is simply because they dont talk to the community, they DICTATE to the community, which is why it ends badly, because they say they ''took what the player wants into account'' without actually seeming to react to anything the players want.

    It's like trying to talk to a hibernating bear by yelling at it, and telling it the cave is being shrunk to gopher size by popular demand. Keep yelling Dice.

    Keep in mind that most of them just got back from holiday this past week and have a lot of stuff to catch up on. Have some patience.

    It wouldn’t hurt for the devs to make comments in current threads. There isn’t that much activity on this forum to read through and it’s the official forum too.

    Had they never responded to reddit and only to the official forums to begin with, bfv sub reddit wouldn't be what it is. I think it's safe to say many of them have more posts on reddit then here. Seems like a waste of EA cash resources maintaining an official site when the dice community only post when they have to make a new sticky.

    Would be nice to know what direction they have in mind and have a discussion with the community instead of the players getting a sticky a week before that says here is 5.0 and what's happening.

    Some direction, openness,
    and transparency would be greatly appreciated (something I thought they said they would improve upon )

    lmao it took them months to raise level cap after stating it was being fixed "ASAP". There is even "coming soon" text still in the menu.
