I moved on with zero regrets. I will support any FPS not produced by EA.

You don't design a game by community feedback for a start. The community doesn't know it's backside from it's elbow. You don't ask them. Ever.
You hire talented designers that work well together under a unified vision, in a hierarchical structure with one visionary design lead at the top. You don't have a "everyone's input is valid" democratic socialist working structure like DICE do...." too many cooks, cocks up a game" as the saying goes. That's why we have contradictions in BFV like a fast and smooth movement system that is diametrically opposed to the slow-paced campy meta the rest of the game promotes - one design team is not aligned with the vision of the other.
Everything should go through the design lead's approval as it is his/her game. If it's a poor game, they don't get to make another one. End of. This is how you sort the wheat from the chaff . EA don't even know who is good and who is bad on their team, because everyone is responsible for all different ingredients and the whole resulting soup is tasting bad. Zero quality with zero accountability.
Most of the devs don't know what they are doing either, so they need to be clearly directed. That's literally all EA have to do, and that's literally the biggest thing they are doing wrong.
