DICE on Bad Company 2 Servers

Eurogamer has word from DICE producer Gordon Van Dyke who explains that DICE makes "no profit" from the rental of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 servers, saying they are not publicly distributing dedicated server software to "protect the game's integrity on PC." While saying, "This does not earn DICE a profit," he leaves open the door to future policy changes by adding: "But we will see where the game goes and support it post launch."

So, I'll just say the same thing here that I told someone that was complaining recently on a server: "No one here is holding a gun to your head and making you buy or play this game, nor is anyone forcing you to play with a particular group of totally random strangers." If you don't like what DICE or IW does, just play something else.

I think it's pretty obvious that the people complaining about DICE's decisions are less likely to buy the game as a result. Stating the obvious is about as productive as raging against the avalanche. What it ultimately comes down to is this: You don't like some people's opinions and you want them to stop sharing them. That's the sole motivation of anyone who complains about whiners. If you want to share your opinion, that's fine. If your opinion essentially consists of you telling other people to shut up, that's not so fine.

No. My statement is saying that no one is forced to do something they don't want to do. I'm not complaining about whiners. I'm telling people that they should support studios that support their mode of thinking rather than wasting their time shouting at EA and Activision. We all know what motivates their decisions. And history tells us how effective is usually is. Works better if you vote with your business and wallet.

Content Edit:I do somewhat agree with Ellisser, though--one really cannot understand how hard multi-platform it until you actually tackle it and all the problems it brings. That was my secondary point.
