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.

EA being EA? shocker.

If they were imbalanced why were they sold in the first place? Could it be that EA put them in as a "pay to win" feature that now its starting to drive people away they want to take it out? On the other hand, could just be they didn't bother testing them.

At the least people should get credit for every dime they spent on those guns.
