EA and DICE are dedicated to striking girls in outstanding roles in upcoming International Battle 2 FPS Battlefield five. Some Reddit posters don’t seem to be too proud of that call, or with a prosthetic arm featured in probably the most recreation’s trailers, and feature taken to the subreddit to criticize Battlefield five’s ancient accuracy, protect its ancient accuracy, or argue that ancient accuracy does not subject. It is now gotten so unhealthy that the subreddit’s moderators have banned posts arguing about ancient accuracy altogether.
“We are finished, it is over,” a put up from moderator u/sloth_on_meth reads. “New rule: Not more bitching about ancient accuracy, it is a recreation, now not a historical past ebook. [Violations] could have penalties.”
“Reddit admins have showed brigading and the modteams of the subs in query are absolutely cooperating to ensure it does not occur once more,” the put up reads. “Hate us all you wish to have however we are finished with this bullshit. This factor has been mentioned in one million threads however we have by no means been brigaded greater than we now have previously months. Admins can simplest stay alongside of such a lot. We are finished losing our time in this, each and every level has been made, no you are now not sexists or no matter, however that is simply repetitive now.”
In an replace, u/sloth_on_meth mentioned, “we get that y’all have legitimate complaint about battlefield V and the customisation choices throughout the recreation. Unfortunately, this subreddit has confirmed to be not able to have a civil dialogue about these items with out devolving into title calling and slapfights.” Following accusations from disgruntled customers, in every other replace u/sloth_on_meth mentioned, “WE ARE NOT PAID BY, CONTROLLED BY OR AFFILIATED TO EA OR DICE.”
As a last-ditch effort to let the subreddit’s neighborhood get the entire pent-up anger out of its device, the mods have created a brief “ancient accuracy megathread.” On the time of writing, it has over 400 feedback.
As one instance of the kind of put up this rule is supposed to forestall: previous this week, one person claiming to be a historian posted a thread titled “calling me uneducated is the final straw” in line with EA COO Patrick Söderlund’s remark that the backlash in opposition to girls in Battlefield five “isn’t OK,” and that the folk criticizing the feasibility of ladies preventing at the frontlines of WWII “are uneducated.” In a twist without a doubt no person noticed coming, the poster became out to not be a historian, or to have long past to the college they claimed. The put up used to be deleted in a while thereafter, however it is nonetheless archived on ResetEra.
