Yeah. Seeing that DA1 had two solid month of sales compared too DA2's single month is very telling and paints a fairly plain picture that a lot of early blind pre-orders felt they got burned and poisoned the the next month of sales with bad reviews and used sales.
Hopefully EA will learn from that and rediscover what made DA1 so appealing. No time to be stubborn. Admit you made a mistake and make up for it.
