    If they see TF2 as successful wouldn't they want to have some of the action for themselves? I loved C&C as a kid, I don't like the direction it's heading to right now. If C&C succeeds, they win and also the folks who like it (also more F2P stuff like a possible BF4 F2P). If it doesn't, no big deal because C&C isn't a hot property any more.

    I don't hate, i just don't like. But, i can like or don't like games, not company who create them. In most cases, i don't even know who made what game i play lol.

    But from mine own experience, i know EA as "Don't care, make money" corp ;).

    Doubt that BF4 will be P2W, it's the only competition to COD they have, and COD is making lots of money as it is, its an online FPS after all.

    And they also have BF heroes and BF play4free for such bussines model (someone still plays that?)

    They destroyed or closed down many of the good studios, pushed developers to change their initial gameplay designs, they pretty much suck...they are destroying gaming.

    EA = Electronic Arseholes

    I don't like EA because Battlefield 3 has never worked for me. I've even built a new machine and it still wouldn't work. Multiplayer games will just kick me back out to the Origin screen 90% of the games i play in. I've tried everything and the game basically does not work. They were no help at all to me, so i won't be spending any money with them again.

    The purchase of Origin Systems back in 1992, followed by a decade of deadlines, rushed games, and utterly destroyed the last three games in the Ultima series.

    from wiki: (The most public display of anger towards EA by a Developer they owned)

    C&C isn't hot property anymore because EA closed down Westwood and then screwed the franchise.

    .. which brings me back to why I hate EA.. that's just one of the reasons.

    EA are pretty good at milking games, that's about it. The quality of their games is kind of crappy. I know they have different houses working on different things but the NFS series was seriously bad and only recently recovered. The only decent ones from modern times are Mirror's Edge (done by Swedes) and the first Dragon Age (Bioware, most likely before EA began riding their asses). Mass Effect was pretty good but I blame EA for ME3's disappointment (one can only assume considering DA2 was a letdown since EA wanted it released asap).

    You must have bought that other MOH:W game. Because my version of MOH:W has worked from day 1 and still has plenty of people playing online.

    Seems everyone is quick to blame everyone else but themselves for buying a sh*t game.

    So... I figure if EA is really disgusting, then they'd be bankrupt by now. But they aren't. You know the rest.
