Gotta wonder how many of these sales are from folk who had faith in the franchise. I mean Dragon age 2 was godawful but it got alot of sales because of folk who enjoyed the first game.

Only EA would go through what is arguably one of the least successful launches of all time and come out the other side telling us it was great and we loved it.

For the love of all that is good with this industry, stop supporting EA.

So there's still 88,000 people with issues? Also how many of those 1.1 Million customers were refused a refund to which they are legally entitled to?

Also why on earth would you have servers in antartica? They can't get video games there, its too cold, its damp, there's polar bears ... why? Wasting money that could be used to improve the server quality.

(They said crashes were down 92%, so that would imply that 8% of players are still having issues)
