So this new marketing scheme to increase the price tag of their games.... 3 day early access if you buy the Early Enlister Edition for $20 more plus some skins and 5 battle packs... I'm pretty sure most players buying this edition is for the 3 days, but are players really getting early access? 

 

I don't think so. Historically, BF titles are released on Tuesday, so really all EA is doing is pushing back the release date for those who buy the standard edition, so the early enlister can have that illusion of getting the game earlier...

 

I really don't care about the 3 days, or when it's going to be released. I'm in no rush to play the game and you can't beat the 20% discount from amazon prime, but this new marketing scheme is a way to milk more money out of players and increasing the cost of games when players are really only buying the illusion of getting the game sooner. 

 

What do you guys think? It's dead here, so thought i'd bring up something stupid.

Already preordered with Premium + Origin Access so I can play this Thurs-Fri for 10hrs for only $5 and to get a 10% discount toward the total price. Canceling Origin Access afterwards cause I wouldn't utilize it for any other reason but to play earlier than earlier and to keep may stats and a dog the tag for reaching rank 18 before my 10 hrs are up.

I think they did a really good job with this one and I don't see the issues with this one we saw with BF4. BUT, after playing the beta I discovered that the game still does some stupid shit that is just the way its made, its not broke, its just how it is. That makes me rage quit already. I've decided that EA has enough of my money and I won't be playing this one. I've canceled my pre-order. Sorry gents, I won't be seeing you on this battlefield.

Yea, that's a good deal with the 10% off + early game time. I thought that deal started today.

 

Brandon, what don't you like about it? 

 

I'm a little worried that the game is going to be too fast paced, arcade like / less tactical and won't have a long lifespan which is why I'm going with the cheapest route with amazon's 20% off. Not paying full price always makes me feel a little better If I'm disappointed with the game.

 

Plus I like to play the single player first any way before I dive into MP.

You fuckers are way to fucking picky. What's the point in being in a battlefield clan if you're just going to whine and bitch every time a new game comes out.

Oh, I think it will do well and I think they also did a pretty good job of it. The things that bother me about it have always bothered me. It's not broken, in fact some of the things are by design or mechanic. After playing it and finding I was rage quiting on a F'n beta, I decided I just don't need to play a game that makes me mad every other time I play. And for personal reasons. Some of you would say "that's' balance" or "that's how it is supposed to be" insert reason here. Nah, I don't see enough fun for me personally here to drop $100+ for it. I'm very sure most of you will truly enjoy the game for many hours, but for me it just doesn't thrill me that much.

And Ripples, I'm not bitching about the game. I'm stating a personal opinion that I don't feel it's for me. I'm sorry my opinion doesn't align with yours about being in this clan and playing every BF game that will ever be produced. I think there is more to this clan than that.

First off.. You spelled my name wrong. Sheesh and secondly... Oh secondly... You complain about everything. It's rather annoying. I used to rage over everything, hell I've broken a keyboard! But just sit back and game with your friends. That is what it's about but I don't think it's broken at all. 

 

I would like to know what you think it broken about it though, and please do leave EA out of it.

Sorry 'bout the spelling, my bad. You need to re-read the post. I said, its NOT broken. I said, they did a good job. There are just things in the game, and were in 3 and 4 that just annoy the hell out of me and for $100+ to play I decided this time I'll take a pass. If it was half that I'd likely buy it. Hopefully, that will calm your nerves a bit. If not, well, too bad.

Come on guys, we all know I'm the picky one that bitches about a lot of things.

 

I think the game will be fun. I'm just annoyed by their new marketing scheme... 

 

Brandon, if you have amazon prime, you get 20% off. =)

Nah, not a prime member. I don't buy enough from them to justify the $99/yr cost, so unfortunately that math won't work either. I think it will be a huge hit, I think it will be very fun and quite popular. For my OWN reasons I just don't see it this time. I think it's time for me to move on. There really isn't anything here for me now. Things change and that's just how it is. Such is life. Have fun guys. See you around.

Is it possible to get the 20% Prime deal on a digital version of the game or do you have to wait for them to ship you a physical copy?

I'd be all over it if I could just get a key right away.

Amazon doesn't offer a digital version. They ship you a box with a code inside. It's free same day shipping. 

 

Still worth it. Total cost of the game with season pass will be $97.98 instead of $129.98... that's almost more than half of a PS4... crazy they can charge so much.

Fuck that.  I just bought the standard version.  I'll just wait for the DLC to be on sale.

I don't think they are selling servers yet. I think I saw somewhere custom servers won't be available until November.
