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.
