    Poor multimillion dollar company, that didn't take basic communication class. So sad

    Its Christmas time, people have lives, I usually play everyday, but some of us have to work and do not live with mom and dad with no job. Been playing since Closed Alpha so the game did not just come out for me, been playing for months. Trying to get work stuff done, cooking, shopping, traveling, hiking and dating. When they come out with the other game modes like Battle Royale and Combined Arms more people will come back AFTER the holidays. This happens every release and do not forget, people do like to wait till all the bugs are out of the system before playing.

    Nah, people play and enjoy six siege and insurgency and are smart enough to not get baited by a multimillion dollar troll company.

    The constant white knighting from the company certainly did not help that's for sure.

    That's right. Because poor multimillion dollar company didn't take basic communication class. Entire EA Staff doesn't know how to communicate.

    When they release the quarterly earnings report, BFV will officially called a disaster. The steep discounting already proves that fact, but the cold, hard sales numbers will back it up. The only positive that will come out of this is maybe they will get on BC3 now and not release a "true" BF for a few years.
    They shouldn't release any game under that management and staff. They should spend their millins on communication classes first

    No, they knew what they were doing and were executing on that plan. The calculated they had "us" already, and were going after the market they did not have - snowflakes, progressives and more women. Seriously, I believe this. It's the same plan that is not working for the NFL.

    Its a communication problem. EA is known for trolling. "Don't buy it" is what a hurt little five year old kid would say, not a multimillion dollar company.

    I'm going to have to disagree. It was a plan that just did not work. If it was a communication problem they would be apologizing out of their butts and changing their messaging. They are not.

    Nice troll thread.

    They didn’t hurt my feelings, but I’m aware of the fact that they triggered a lot of people.

    #whahhhh

    You got baited. By EA

    It didn't work because it is a communication problem. Damage was done and people started put one and one together, noticing EA is a troll that doesn't care about customers. They won't apologize, which underlines their lack of communication.

    Have you Majored in Business or communication classes or even have a degree in anything?

    I did. But thats not required to see through EA's trolling. A working brain and reading ability are enough.

    They weren't "trolling", they used that specific messaging as a marketing tactic - the goal to sell games to a previously untapped market.

    Releasing after RDR2 and BO4 was already a big mistake. Not so bad if the game would have been good though. Unfortunately it is not good ... no wonder people don't buy this alpha release.

    White knighting, years of trolling and not apologizing is the problem. This is communication.

    You're missing the point, communication is not an end-goal/objective - it's a marketing tactic.
