    No, that wasn't my point. It was exactly the opposite - while Anthem has more tools to differentiate playstyles due to combat/class structure, Destiny/Division rely only on differences between weapons/skills to create playstyles. It wasn't about how different weapons behave in Anthem (as i expected they did behave vastly differently as you said).
    No one wants to choose. Everyone wants everything.

    Yeah, sure thing, you totally didn't do exactly what you did. Absolutely.

    Yup, EA has absolutely been saying that publicly. Absolutely.

    Also people not unlike yourself have also not been saying otherwise despite EA literally saying it on said call you reference right after you cherry picked that it didn't meet expectations and claimed to have not cherry picked anything. Totally didn't happen.

    Biowares been saying it. And I dont think anybody itt has said they'd drop support so quickly. None of the other things even matter. Dont be angry at me because ea are notorious for closing studios down.

    Yeah, no you're right, you absolutely didn't do all the things you claim you didn't do and then change goal posts at the end here. Totally never happened, you right, you right. Yeah not a single person has claimed EA would drop support of the game, definitely never happened. Silly me.

    Folks, take the passive aggressive bickering to PM's if you want to continue. Keep discussion on Anthem please.

    hahaaaa, I didn't see you trying to make that distinction from miles away, it wasn't obvious at all! You definitely didn't set that one up intentionally so you could make that argument and try to drive the convo in that direction!

    Aite I'm done, you're awful at trying to save face.

    PLEASE, as if there's any real moderation on the BS this thread has gone through. Its like 90% bickering and people talking out of their ass about things they know jack about.

    Me: man, below expectations are bad for ea studios
    You: cherrypicker!
    Me: there was nothing to cherrypick because there wasnt any other important data we didnt know about
    You: cherrypicker!
    Me: nah
    You: GOALPOST MOVER!

    I really dont get why you're so angry. I at least tried to like it.

    They reaffirmed both support for Anthem and Bioware as well as using it as a teaching moment to change how they company does things. Of course a lot of that is CEO speak but even if some of it makes its way into operations of the company it is against exactly what you think happens to EA studios that don't meet expectations.
    ... They reaffirmed their support of Andromeda as well. Before announcing there would be no new DLC, but it did get a couple of multiplayer patches. Then was left to die in a field.

    This is cringe as fuck to watch, why of all games would Anthem be your hill to die on?

    But...hes right. At least in the Division (1/2) anyway.

    Using your skills is downright necessary sometimes. And in the case of the remote grenade (I call him Rollyboy) there isnt much of a more satisfying skill.


    OT: I am really glad I only did a month worth of that sub to play Anthem. I just knew something was going to go wrong, despite how much fun the gameplay is (zooming in with a ranger unleashing your rocket salvo is Ironman af).

    There's a lot of people derping about it being a completely broken experience when it's actually got really fun core gameplay that stands out from your typical FPS or cover-based shooter. The rewards and content release is disappointing if you're into the games-as-a-service thing or need some sort of Skinner-style endorphine dispenser, but if you're into games-as-fun then it's well worth logging into.

    I mean let's reiterate the list one more time with new additions.

    Lied about game. There's no moving round this. Bioware flat out spread misinformation about the game.
    Bugged release and can't even remove/add shit without breaking the game further.
    EA gave them the benefit of the doubt and about a year off release got tired of their shit.
    Matchmaking is struggling to find full parties due to the players leaving.
    Has not exceeded expectations which means EA will just Andromeda style support it.

    And the list goes on. I get people enjoy a game. That's perfectly fine. But flat out ignoring the issues/claiming you don't have them so they don't exist and so on is the reason devs push messes like this out. Because they know they have people who will accept games that lack quality.

    And in my opinion that's sad.

    Where are you having issues with matchmaking? I've never had a problem with contracts up to GM3 and Strongholds GM2. There have been issues with people ditching on the Monitor because the length of time he takes isn't worth the chest but other than that I've only really had problems in GM3 Strongholds, but those are better done with an organised group.

    It's not "Completely" Broken but there are a lot of things that are still broken and underdeveloped in this game.

    when it's actually got really fun core gameplay that stands out from your typical FPS or cover-based shooter.
    I disagree, All I played with a mediocre Third Person Looter shooter with Mass Effect/Destiny inspired gameplay.

    stands out from your typical FPS or cover-based shooter.
    As opposed to another run and gun Shooter?

    BioWare is owned by EA. All the original BioWare staff are gone. Can this be mentioned enough?

    It's only natural that Anthem would fall flat, as it's operated by EA, to it's very core.

    BioWare is a bought trademark, which EA paid dearly for. The quality is not going to be here, as a result.

    EA had some awesome games decades ago, don't get me wrong. StarFlight anyone?



    They had good games before.. but not anytime lately.
