EA Exec Tweets and Deletes About "Brutal" BF2042 Expectations

A tweet from EA executive Andy McNamara announces he has deleted some tweets about Battlefield 2042, saying: "Deleted the tweets. Seems my message wasn’t clear. Apologies." As noted by Flakfire (thanks Tom Henderson), these tweets included criticism of gamer expectations, calling them "brutal," so it seems the message may have been more unwelcome than unclear. Here was what McNamara said about gamers expecting more than they've gotten from the military shooter sequel.
Back to work today, check Reddit and Twitter and battlefield fans are pissed we didn't do enough updates or communication during the holiday break. Guys, people gotta rest. We have things in motion but we have to figure out what is possible. We will address it when are 100%.

Let us get back from break and get back to work. Love you guys but these expectations are brutal. The things you want take time to scope, design, and execute.

1942 (and Vietnam on top of that base) were the last time the game wasn't a buggy mess, and that's not to say that it didn't have bugs, "red tag bug" existed back then too, but the game was mostly polished.
BF2 launched with horrendous problems and the "red tag" bug got even worse... 2142 was on top of that.
Then you had BC and BC2 which were fun but a bit of a departure from the old formula... but they feature a lot of destructible buildings and terrain which was cool.

Then BF3 was a buggy mess and that's when they started adding the extra meat-grindy close quarters maps where it was just grenades, machine guns, and a billion healthpacks in a small chokepoint until the map ended.
From then on out all of the games have just been BF3 with some new graphics to me...
I tend to pick one up about every other release... skipped BF4, Hardline, got BF1 because of the novelty of a WW1 game, and that was actually pretty decent, got BFV for the Battle Royale... but that was a mistake... skipping 2042.

You and remember BF: Vietnam very differently. That game was a buggy piece of shit that took them 6 months to make playable.

I have to assume I was done playing it before 6 months were up.
I got it at launch and played it a ton. Don't remember it having any major issues. One of my favorite in the series.
