LOLOLOL. It may be true, but this sounds a bit insane feom the eyes of the consumer. Activision just seems like paranoid assholes because they think they're in danger of losing their one good franchise. They sound like Nixon.

Shame IW just can't rebrand the Modern Warfare COD games without getting sued. Activision have a sh*tload of money coming in for years to come on COD, even if they don't even make any new games for a few years!

Hahaha, whether these accusations are true or not, I'm rather happy with the direction the IW co-founders were going. Activision's high up on the pedestal. They are fattest cows...no, pigs, in the industry at the moment. I'd be happy if they tried to have Activision lose some sales, and I'd be even happier if and when Activision loses this case.

EA has regained credability, and I wish the former IW employees the best in going that route. They deserve better, and hopefully can create something to show some competition in this FPS-driven world.

Except EA gives horrible support for the games they produce.

What do you mean by that? Are you talking about post-release DLC content? If so, I'd like to call the bullshit card. Nowhere does it say we're obligated to receive DLC after a game's release, some just do it for the extra cash. In terms of patches, they've been patching when necessary. Besides, from what I see, EA's really risen up over the years. Perhaps you're thinking about Old EA, with terrible-quality games, big titles, and no effort or care. Now we've gotten a few new IPs out on the market, much more support than before...a necessary restructure.

Activision, on the other hand, aren't afraid to charge $15 for a handful of shitty maps...

Medal of Honor and Bad Company. Two fairly recent titles.
EA openly said Medal of Honor wasnt up to par for them and Bad Company 2 is mostly DICE using a new technique that made patching more and more difficult each time they patched it.

Let me reiterate: Are you talking about post-content DLC? Bad Company has Vietnam, a huge pack, fairly decent if I do say so myself. Sure the game came out Q1 this year, but the pack was well worth the wait. As far as Medal of Honor goes...well it isn't exactly a well-received title. In fact, I believe it's one of the most average shooters around, heh. They should have worked on it more and...released it at a better time, ie, not so close to big dogs such as Halo Reach or Black Ops.

Game engines have nothing to do with disconnects and server failure.

I'm not talking about content at all. I'm talking about their servers.

...And I would know what you're talking about why? It's not like you stated it before, even though I had asked you to clarify what you meant.

I've played quite a bit of Bad Company 2 and have faced few server issues. Played a lot of Rush, don't know about how things handle on the other mode.

On the PC side not only are servers and connections incredibly stable and not laggy. There were a few major bugs at launch that were solved pretty quickly, and ever since we've been getting a cascade of new content, mostly free. BC2 is incredibly good right now on 'post-launch support', not sure why you would bother to complain.

70% of disconnects and lag issues are down to the PC/owner.

Furthermore the servers aren't EA's issue, they use server providers (very reliable and very reputable ones) that provide very decent support.

As far as I know, BC2 only had to wait a week after release for a patch to fix the server lag etc.

I waited for a whole month for 2 patches from Treyarch, the first being a fail patch in order to get my lags, freezes and crashes fixed.

You want to compare support...EA has the much better support than Activision...but everyone's experience differs...my experiences have been good with EA and their partners...however not so good with Kotick and co

However as I mentioned before...good to see Kotick putting that $1 billion to good use by taking out their enemy
