Yesterday Battlefieldo (one of the largest Battlefield community site) threatened EA / DICE with Battlefield 3 24h blackout caused by "lack of communication between DICE and fans of the game." The complete concept around #BF3Blackout is here, if you want the shorter version, you can look at the article in eurogamer.net.
The ultimatum was that if by March 2nd, EA / DICE don't do anything
about it, Battlefieldo will stop publishing information about
Battlefield 3 and will lock their servers for 24 hours, inviting
everybody who disagrees with the "status quo" to do the same.
which personally I've always thought that are quite open and listening
to the community (unlike EA) reacted very quickly, and published this titanic long post containing frighteningly large list of planned changes
and fixes in the game. I personally suggest you have the strength to
read the whole, to share if there are any interesting things inside. : D
Of course, when these changes will take effect is TBA, but at least
people at battlefieldo are quite satisfied that their thread worked.:
EA does have announced that next week will start heading Inside DICE in
BF blog and you will inform us of the new things in the
game.Personally, I sincerely hope with launch of that section, EA
finally deigned to reveal its plans for the new Battlefield 3 DLC that
was supposed to be announced "next week" (speech made on February 2). :)
