EA censors its own support number on its forums

If nobody calls, it must mean nobody has any complaints!

"EA's SimCity saga has provided no shortage of comedy. Maxis general manager Lucy Bradshaw just yesterday proudly announced that the company is "hearing from thousands of people who are playing across regions, trading, communicating and loving the Always-Connected functionality." Surely EA must be receiving a mountain of complaints as well, unless it somehow found a way to prevent customers from even contacting the support team. Hmmm..." (Culture, EA, Industry, Lucy Bradshaw, SimCity)

So "EA" is actually short for "evasive actions" who knew?.

I bet they will win worst company of the year again.

The nomination period has ended on the 12th but public voting starts in two days March 19th. There's no way EA is going to surrender the crown.

It's going to say "you sure are an asshole, EA, but by golly have another hundred mill on the house."

Sad, but....gotta keep it real.

LOL. Man EA is a joke. They should buy Gearbox and re-release Colonial Marines now with micro transactions! Its what us gamers have clamored for!

Origin. It's the reason I never bought BF3 on PC, despite it being much better in quite a few ways.

"Quite a few"
More like in every way! I wish I had a PC to play it and not a ps3.

I would be very surprised if EA manages to stay as big of a corporate power house past this coming generation if they continue. They're on the fast track to being run out of business by the customers if they continue.

And that will be a good day.

Some might just say this is the actions of a company voted worst in their native country.. not EA ofcourse, they'll just hold up their hands innocently and pretend all their customers are happy.
