    I'm both surprised and not surprised that all the BF YouTubers took a whole week to finally say something.

    More like BF doesn't have any QA.

    The Invisible Man says so.

    Even Westie recognizes the issues running amok from the latest patch. If your biggest supporters are worried, why shouldn't I?

    When the guys who are paid to promo for you have turned then can only guess their viewing figures are way down.

    They don't have a problem, since they don't have quality control ... 
    No CTE, No BFtracker.com, etc ...

    You can't call reading social media and choose a random issue and try to fix that quality control ...

    EA Dice just dont care anymore of this game. Their absolute priority is now just selling microtransactions, boosters and elite skins. Elite skins with each skin having even their own presentation trailer. Thats where all the Dice effort gets redirected to. Making trailers for their skins instead of fixing the game.

    The selling gap between BF1 and BF5 was HUGE. They also offered BF1 players a custom super discount hoping to fill that gap of players missing with no result. Battlefeld 1 players remained in Battlefield 1, many others went back even to Battlefield 4. Then to catch audience they desperately needed, they even tried to appeal Battle Royale audience, an audience made of whales. Kids  spending big cash for a single skin (The 500 dollars Wraith kunai in Apex Legends rings a bell? Or any Fortnite kids usind their dad's credit cards) and even so, Firestorm was a huge poorly made disappointment. Streamers paid by EA to promote this BR just stopped playing it and uninstalled Battlefield once and for all.

    Now EA Dice find themselves in the situation of having a game who sold extremely poorly even compared to BF1, BF5 a game with a super low player count...a game who has no visibility in any streaming platforms out there.. thats why they freak out when people ask to see the active population. And lastly, they find themselves with no whales population of BR genre...

    Now their last resort is to milk money as much as they can from the miniscule community still left playing this game.

    And dont forget the fact they dont release big content via live service, is their ultimate tactics to make people wanting to reinstate Premium Passes. Not seeing any free content, people will regret the time when they had to pay to see content. The same trashy move who split the community in BF1. I'd not be surprised if future BF6 will have Premium pass back from the beginning.

    No, www.BFtracker.com, the BUG tracker, that was used in previous Battlefields and managed by the quality control department in those battlefields.

    They created something new or made a fix, announced CTE (community test environment) was live and players could (stress) test the new/fixed content on every platform before it was released to the public.

    Any bugs players found in CTE or in the game they could add to bftracker.com, which was used by the quality department and devs to make decisions and fix things.
    Bugs also got info on platform, version of the game, circumstances, etc.

    So all bugs and issues were documented and players and devs knew what was already mentioned/discovered and what the status was of those bugs/issues.

    A REAL quality control system ... unlike what we have now.

    Battlefieldtracker.com has nothing to do with quality, just with stats.

    BFTracker.com was for bug tracking rather than player stats I believe.

    What's going on that's the second Youtuber I agree with in one day?!

    It is clear that DICE need to get control of the QA and patches otherwise it's game over

    Yeah can't deny that made me chuckle the other day when I first saw the trailers for the character. That time could've been used to fix a bug or address one of our many many complaints.

    But I think it's obvious this is the direction gaming is going. All games are becoming monetized unfortunately. It's too bad there are no indy games that play similar to Battlefield.
