I don't get it. You, yourself, paid for a product. You paid for it, as is, and strapped yourself into the future development of the game for the future updates and patches. You paid for it. You, for whatever reason, thought the game was worth however much you paid for it, at the time you paid for it. You thought the game was worth $80 before it even came out and now you think it's worth less than $20? Well too bad, now you're out $60+ because you made a bad choice. That's life. That's the market. How many times do we have to tell you NOT to preorder? You put in the money thinking one day it would potentially be worth what you spent.
To go off of this, you even decided to preorder from a company who's last few games weren't such hits. Battlefront 2? Battlefront 1? Anyone remember those? Remember how forgotten and how failed those games were?
To go off that, notice how they got significantly better with time? Notice how a year after Battlefront 2's disastrous release, it's a great game that many enjoy somewhat regularly? Ever notice how literally every DICE game ever has had a bad launch.
BF4? The game that's hailed so highly here? Horrid launch. You couldn't even play some maps without it crashing when it loaded. BF1, significant network and server issues. BF3 also contained lots of issues around servers and glitches. That is until they FIXED THEM!
I will never understand this community. For a group that is willing to spend $80 before the game even hits store shelves, willing to complain about a game like it's the worst thing since WWI, yet is still willing to put sometimes dozens of days worth and still plays regularly and is willing to go through it all again for the next game is astounding. They're willing to bash literally everything about the game, say they're done with it, claim they're quitting the whole nine yards, yet will still pick up the controller and play another round daily. Those people that constantly say that DICE is bad and they refuse to support DICE yet continue to play are an absolute psychology case to me.
Why are those that are so willing to go through what is self described as "The worst experience ever in a video game" (which I can pretty much guarantee that's not true) continuously? Is it addiction? The want to prove themselves wrong? The sunk cost fallacy? There's no reason why, in my mind, that people would want to willingly put themselves through something that makes them so angry so often when they're supposed to be playing a GAME. It's a freaking game. Calm down. Walk away if you're not having a good time. It's irrational to stay and play if you're not enjoying yourself.
