Battlefield 3 Cheats member count : 300k and growing

GAMEPLAY :
Guns: Yet to be balanced after almost a year on the market
Vehicles : ECM/ flares lack of function distinction
Teamplay: Commander(removed) , VOIP (removed) , influx of COD players
Russian Voiceover
Hit Detection : Almost BF2 Level

MACRO
Mod tools : Never be released
Reliance on Origin
Tech Support : Sub Par
Patch frequency: Low
Community Satisfaction : Low
Attention level to Community suggestions : Bioware level

General report : Battlefield and MoH is becoming the new Call Of Duty
Suggested action: Be prepared for the great exodus

In a nutshell

This picture explains it

and for all those people saying
If you hate the game so much why don't you play something else?

Now...
If you spent $50000 to fly to a restaurant at Antarctica.
On the menu, you are presented with 3 dishes
A : Penguin Fat
B: Human Feces
C: Ice pick

Which one will you eat?

Cool story brah. Don't worry, DICE will surely make the same mistake with BF4 again.

Fret not. All is as per usual.

Valid points there, totally agree...

My top 3

1- Mod tools
2- balance issues / low patch frequency
3- reliance on origin
When i'm being paid i follow my job through...

Russian voiceovers
Horrible balancing(Stop this nerf buff bullshit)
Most Vanilla maps suck
Lack of action to suggestions
Lack of attention to hackers
Shitty commorose
CQ DLC is a waste

I couldn't agree more Comrade...

But if the community had the mod tools just imagine guys. Dedicated and skilled mod group would make miracles! Absence mod tools are such a huge loss!

lol DICE is preparing for a sh*tstorm and are cutting all contact with the bf players
people call it the xbox 720 cuz when they see it the turn around 720 degrees and walk away. You do realize that turning 720 degrees would leave you facing the X-box

Let's add a few:

- MoH players are the main focus group and priority beta testers.
- Immediately following BF3 with BF4 is an admission of defeat and basically saying the game is unsalvageable.
- EA stock is hitting the pavement, the best is yet to come

BF3 is over and done.

Now all the resources are going to BF4.

This game needs mod tools. I find it amazingly frustrating that DICE has acknowledged this but will never do anything about it. Why act like you care about the customers when you clearly don't? Oh right, because you work for EA.
