Battlefield Play4Free Nerf Gun Uproar

The Battlefield Play4Free Forums discuss the removal of "legacy" weapons that players had purchased within the online military first-person shooter. There is a FAQ explaining that they were imbalanced, that there are no refunds offered for these, and that they are being replaced by "unique" +3 weapons. There is followed by page after page of complaints about this, as summarized on GamingBolt: "However, these weapons have been stripped of all attachments, and those players who had customized their weapons to their liking using attachments will now have to buy new ones from a new catalog. So basically, EA is asking players to pay for something that they’re already pay for. Say, if you increased your ammo capacity using attachments, you will have to do that again now, since all Legacy updates have been removed." Thanks Ant via Digg.

And this surprises people how? You keep giving EA money, they're going to keep raping you.

I think my favorite part of the whole story is how initially they were all like "No, those weapons aren't unbalanced!" and now their tune is "yeah, those were way unbalanced, so we got rid of all of them and replaced them with new weapons you have to buy more shit for."

Good old EA. Your entire corporate headquarters could burn to the ground, and it still wouldn't make up for all the shit you pull.
