It has come to my attention that EA actually shut down one its official forums. This comes as no surprise as it was the primary place players gathered to criticize their games usually with much negativity. There has been no information regarding the the exact reason for EA's choice. Rather than address game issues EA thought it would be better to just turn a blind eye to them. It can be expected that EA will state they wanted to consolidate its members to the Battlelog forums, but we all know that's a lie, and if it isn't then its only because they have more control over the content of threads there. To me this is a simple case of going after the symptoms rather than looking for a cure. So where does that leave the former EAUK members? Some will migrate to the new Mordor forums, started in memory of the EAUK forums being nicked named that by the EA DICE community manager. Others will migrate to other forums. No matter how you look at it EA just cut open a tumor full of caner that will spread across the net.

I doubt suppression of criticism was a motivation behind shutting EAUK, more likely they want to consolidate the community and encourage players to interact with the game more directly.

That said, within the context of each title's time, BF3 would easily be the worst proper Battlefield title to date, and has probably generated a lot more rage than any previous title.  Why?
- More pay to win elements than ever.
- They don't seem to care about stopping cheaters.  These days, PB is just lip service.
- No hosting your own servers.
- More crashing than any previous title.
- The smallest number of maps (8) of any Battlefield title.
- Paying for maps (DLC packs) when we used to get a decent amount for free, both up front and through patches.

I'd imagine they want to move all Battlefield discussion to the Battlelog forums, but those are just as much a joke anyways.

Well many players there were starting to organize against choices made by EA which could have affected their bottom line if it continued.

The EAUK forums were much better than the Battlelog forums. There is virtually no moderation in the Battleog forums so almost anything goes. Plus I heard getting banned from them does not allow you to login to Battlelog, which means you cannot play BF3 since its launched though it.

Well when you play a game for 5 years and it becomes your favorite game, then another game being marketed as a sequel comes long, yet it shares almost nothing in common with it, you tend to get a little pissed. To make things better DICE knew very well their deception would be received with much negativity and continued to push forward.

Dice has nothing to do with it dude. Its all EA, they buy up companies and gut them, then install peoplr who will do their bidding.

Did you found it? Oh sorry, I must have missed the last 300 years of history.

This is a GAME, don't even try to compare it to the establishment of a country and FYI, you're all immigrants brought in by EUROPE. You were established by the British. America is a bastard country.

Its more hispanic and black by now. Whites are the minority.

Also, austrailia is a bastard colony too, if you want to use your logic.
