Other DLC's that were supposed to be released are postponed. EA told DICE to stop the development of the DLC until the actual game is fixed.

I take it as amazing news. Thoughts?

Yeah, saw that vid earlier and I also think it's good news.
No point in releasing DLC's when the game is always freezing, at least they're gonna try to fix the problems now.

hopefully they will finally rebalance the weapons and put suppression back in.

hopefully they fix some of these assignments and ribbon requirements like they did last year, getting 8 ammo resupplies is difficult when the portable ammo doesnt go with the person you throw it at

I'm really pissed that I payed about 120 dollars for battlefield and some extra camos and a non working DLC. I am glad that dice is taking action to fix all of these awfull issues an glitches.

now we need to see how they plan to compensate those who bought premium, they won't refund but they should offer something. All in all great news!

Ya, it's a big bummer for the Premium members, but honestly, those people haven't lost their money yet, cos you will get the DLC early anyway. It's not canceled, it's just postponed. So I don't really see any big damage to that. Of course for people that bought the game for $60/£40 at launch day were kinda ripped off, as you can buy the game cheaper. At this moment, I think £30 (I would say less actually) is the right price for game in its current state.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if you're right, I think they will understand how badly they've treated their fans and do more now.

Why is everyone feeling bad for Premium members? Postponed doesn't mean cancelled. It just means the DLC will come out later than expected. I'm fine with that. Hell, at this point, I just want a working game. This is great news.

exactly right wouldn't it be nice to just get all the DLC at once when they're done fixing things.

It's a pretty bad product when even EA feels that it has to step in to get it fixed. Nice job Dice, you blew it.
