    Lawfirm May Sue EA Over Buggy Battlefield 4 Rollout

    Lawsuit or no lawsuit, just fix the game, please

    Various problems continue to plague Battlefield 4, one of the most hyped game releases of the year. If fixes don't come soon, Electronic Arts could find itself facing multiple lawsuits, both from users frustrated with persistent issues marring the overall experience, and from stockholders who have begun to investigate whether or not EA was completely upfront during the development process.
    Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC, a lawfirm based out of Atlanta, Georgia, issued a press release saying it's investigating whether or not EA "complied with the federal securities laws between July 24, 2013 and December 4, 2013." The apparent investigation is looking at statements issued by EA during that time with regards to the development and sale of BF4, along with the game's impact on EA's revenues and projects moving forward.
    According to a Forbes, a quick online search reveals that Holzer Holzer, & Fistel often investigate public companies, though out of the results it dug up, none turned into actual lawsuits. Investment site YourMoney123 says that the law firm seems to specialize in suing publicly traded companies with publicly embarrassing problems.

    Regardless, this amounts to more bad press for EA, along with added pressure to fix the many issues facing BF4. Server connectivity issues and general stability woes have been a problem since BF4 was first released.

    EA has come as close as you’re ever likely to see to admitting that Battlefield 4 is broken, to the point where the company claims that developers DICE will not be working on any future expansions or projects until the game is working as intended. Speaking to IGN (Battlefield 48.5/10), an EA representative has said “We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game – it is absolutely our #1 priority. The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game.” DICE is “not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4,” the representative adds. The ‘China Rising’ DLC has already been released, of course, but their excuse for that is the add-on was “already in the final stages of development by the time issues began with Battlefield 4.” Which is quite possible.
    Further patches and updates to the game will be coming on all platforms, including the PC which is still suffering from server-based issues and problems with the multiplayer.
    You may now be wondering how Battlefield 4 achieved an average score of no less than 8/10 across all platforms (as tracked by metacritic.) Could it be that a majority of reviewers just missed the multiplayer problems? Well, in a way, yes. Most of the reviews close to the embargo date were based on attendance of an EA-controlled event at which the multiplayer probably functioned just fine, as it was in very localised conditions. The rest of the high scores you can probably put down to basic incompetence.
    IncGamers’ Tim McDonald gave the PC version of Battlefield 4 a 5/10, on the basis that there was a decent game in there somewhere, just one that wasn’t reliably functioning at the time of release.

    Battlefield 4 (October 2013) – Tim was the one ‘lucky’ enough to review Battlefield 4, so my experience with this comes second hand. But you know a game launch has gone according to plan when the publisher has to state publicly that the developer has been pulled off all other projects until the issues are fixed.
    There was also an apology. Though this was more a self-congratulatory note that DICE had managed to ship a game than a mea culpa, and was tone-deaf to the fact that Battlefield 4 was crashing left, right and center on all launch platforms. EA and DICE’s impressive response? Here, have a weekend of double experience points! Which you can’t really get involved with because the game doesn’t work, and one of the main bugs wipes players’ experience points.
    To the surprise of no-one, a source claiming to have been a QA tester on the game has suggested that EA rushed Battlefield 4 to release in order to get the title out before Call of Duty: Ghosts.
    Battlefield 4 was so fundamentally knackered at launch that an EA stockholder has launched an attempted class action lawsuit against the publisher. It alleges that EA executives misrepresented the state of the game all the way up to launch, fraudulently inflating the company share price while they offloaded $13.2 million USD of their own stock. That last part isn’t alleged. Court filings show that between July and August of 2013, several EA executives did indeed dump a whole lot of stock.

    So, Does It Work Yet? Well, according to the Official Battlefield 4 Top Issues Tracker (yet another sign of a spectacular launch,) fixes are “live” for about half of the reported problems. That doesn’t necessarily mean the problem has gone away, but it does indicate DICE has released a patch attempting to address it. Unlike a lot of the other games on this list, Battlefield 4‘s issues seem to be largely technical (rather than design-based) in nature. The launch was inexcusable, but there’s reason enough to be hopeful for a decent game to emerge out of the technical woes.
