The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Battlefield 3 Community Plans 24-Hour Blackout

Posted on Wednesday, February 22 @ 15:05:21 PST by

The Battlefield 3 online community at is fed up with the lack of communication from Electronic Arts with its players. They plan on holding a 24-hour blackout of the title in protest.

Despite their love of the game, they are frustrated with the fact that "some marketing/publishing powerhouse with nothing but dollar signs and stock projections in mind", instead of DICE "who should be running the Battlefield community", has decided to be silent about everything. Since the game's launch in October, there has been "no infoformation on patches until release date, and no communication at all from the studio and developers on issues".

They fear that EA prevents DICE from providing information on "patching schedules, game updates,or even hints at Downloadable content", though they admit that DICE is part to blame for the glitches in the first place.

In reaction to this silent treatment, they will refuse to play, post, or tweet about anything on Battlefield 3... that is, unless Electronic Arts announces the fixes they are planning with the next patch before March 2nd and not give some "bullshit responses on twitter from @Battlefield telling them to contact a game advsior".

You can follow @dontrevivemebro and @Battlefieldo twitters for more information on the #BF3Blackout.
