EA have been trolled by a domain squatter

1 min read

Suffice to say EA is not the favourite company of many gamers who feel the company exists purely to increase profits. And the best way for the company to do that, says many, is to ship sub-par games and then ruthlessly release crap DLC while slashing head counts.

Whether this is entirely true is often the subject of lively debates but a few days ago one enterprising person, who appears to be Russian, took it upon themselves to troll EA is a truly magnificent and to the point manner.Β EA is currently developing a new Star Wars game which looks amazing but the fans are still worried about exactly how the game will turn out and so this person went and registered www.eastarwars.com just 5 days ago and has put up some of the things that they feel EA have ruined.

Be warned the website is committing the cardinal sin of auto playing music when it loads that can’t be stopped unless you remove that code from the page.

But to save you that hassle here is what the site shows:

We’ve seen this table doing the rounds and it really doesn’t look good so far but maybe what is more eye opening is the list of EA Victims on the site

The website has been registered anonymously through enom.com and the only hint as to who made this site comes from their contact email address dingdong1232@zmail.ru.

Definition of an online troll:

make a deliberately offensive or provocative online posting with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.

Nailed it.

    If Disney are trying to distance themselves from the Star Wars prequels, which I suspect they are doing, why would they allow a game like Battlefront, which is releasing close to the new movies debut, to include prequel era maps and classes? And if they are including any of the new movies locations in it, revealing it now would be a spoiler. I dont support EA and their dodgy business practices but it annoys me when everyone rides the EA hating bandwagon and start looking for things to moan about and start spouting bullshit.
