EA’s CEO Comments on Battlefield 3 Server Problems

So far it’s been smooth sailing for Battlefield 3 in the sales department, but as anyone who’s played the game online can testify to, all these boats are creating a turbulent wake in the mercurial waters known as the EA servers. Players of both the PC and console versions alike have frequently been subject to lagging, time-outs, and full on server outages.

They need to fix the dam Mics on PS3, every time I'm with my friends playing online, the mics have some serious issues...

the mic keeps chopping in and out, and sometimes your squad can't hear you at all... works fine when I start the squad but as soon as the match starts.. mics go all fuzzy

I don't get it because mics worked fine in Bad company 2

dam it, fix the mics...

-It's so annoying, when your trying to tell your squad he's at the base setting the charge kill him, and the mic is not working.. WTF.. DICE..

all the chopping in and out is ridiculous...

Im very dissapointed and i hope Bioware doesnt screw up the Swtor launch.


Am i wrong to expect better from a billion dollar company for the launch of their biggest game this year, that had a big beta to avoid these type of problems. Im not dissapointed in the game's multiplayer itself but just ea still not knowing how to work servers only thing they know to do with servers is shutting them down.

I don't think you're wrong. It's shit that they said they released that crappy beta for sever testing and to make sure it doesn't go down on launch day/night.

And it did.

Serves EA right for talking so much smack against COD this time around. That 83 or 84 on metacritic for the 360 isn't looking too pretty right now.

I think we shouldnt have bad mouthed Battlefield even though its about EA's incompetence to get the servers running stable, and not DICE who made a great game. Bf3 Loyalists are foaming at the mouth because of it.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF2430d ago

I can agree with that as well.

SHHHHHHHHHH speaking bad about Battlefield 3 or Ea on this site is taboo o________0!!

HardCover2430d ago

Happens all the time.

People still haven't noticed the pattern. For example, I still meet people to this day that think GTA IV on PC is poorly optimized. Then I show them some youtube videos and they get that dumb look on their face...

pc version works perfectly for me, been playing since midnight launch, had one or two disconnects from server in the 100 or so games i've played, hopped right onto another!
