More controversy, more criticism, with so many policies unpopular in the eyes of gamers, not a strange thing it seems that if one of the largest publishers in the gaming industry – Electronic Arts continues to gain the title as one of the worst companies in the United States. Apart from the claim that they will try to improve that image, EA continues to blunder. The launch of Battlefield 4 are full of problems, dismissals and closure of many studios that take shelter under them, YouTuber bribe policies to promote their games, and the last one sounds even more sinister – trying to manipulate the ratings system games on Google Play.

Apart from the existing excoriation, this game has a comparatively high enough rating on Google Play. Wow!
Microtransactions indeed be considered very normal mechanisms applied in a game free to play, especially is designed very well. Game-class game World of Tanks, DOTA 2, Team Fortress, or Planetside 2 even has become a valid proof of how they can work together and invite positive feedback from gamers. While EA’s The Dungeon Defender and that was done at the Namco Bandai Tales of Phantasia iOS into a nightmare that did not want to ever want to see players in the future. Please EA, this is not what we want … we can assure you that ..
