If you remember we made the standard weapons available permanently for BF in closed beta. These new weapons are no different - they are available for free with VP and they are available permanently for BF (actually at a price that was lower than before).

Our analysis of the VP economy showed us that people had lots of unused VP, which told us the prices for VP items were too low - hence the increases in VP pricing today.

We also frankly wanted to make buying Battlefunds more appealing. We have wages to pay here in the Heroes team and in order to keep a team large enough to make new free content like maps and other game features we need to increase the amount of BF that people buy. Battlefield Heroes is a business at the end of the day and for a company like EA who recently laid off 16% of their workforce, we need to keep an eye on the accounts and make sure we are doing our bit for the company.

If you guys have any more questions or comments feel free to email me direct on ben.cousins@dice.se

total ********. You guys at EA are idiots. BAN me... i don't care anymore. I buy BF constantly. BUT im fed uo with you guys with todays patch. TO FORCE US TO BUY BF TO GET WEAPONS IS MORE THEN ENOUGH. 430VP for 3day??? WHAT THE F4CK?!

orginal from interview:

question: how do you keep the balance if you can buy upgrates and weapons?
answer: you won´t be able to buy guns!

Ben Cousins that was an epic fail Angry

sry for my poor english
(again the proof http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVq5HLHgCzA)

so you need money to keep poor EA alive? fine so how about clearing out thoose hacker noobs or fix your poor new matchmaking before even think of forcing all bf players to buy weapons with real money to be able to not get pwned by some 8 yr old who has dadys credid card?

I dont think BF buyers are gonna like this, since their are now gods they cannot loos from not BF buyers the game will get very boring soon and will mady not buy them annymore just to get a good competion.
I think the game is now more about money than strategy or skills, so yes EA failed.

so due the financial problem everybody is having this is happening but still we have late updates, fixes, features the worse hackers resolve method and you need to collect evidence like if you are a CSI and get commando with level 5 stealth because they are cheap enough to not implement and LOG system to track every-player patcher like most of the MMO games, but we have to consider them and get used to new system???? Give us something too.... and no, no new maps.

Here is my theory.
The new matchmaking system is design for less servers.
They now many players are going to leave the game so they have to buy less servers.

I aint afraid of them of there god damn money becaiuse I aint got to much to lose anny way

BUT THEY HAD BETTER REALISE FAST THEVE STOLEN FROM ME AND I AINT GONNA FORGET IT

I Loved the way they lied(AGAIN) on twiter about the update aswell

BATTLE FIELD SHOULD BE BACK UP IN ABOUT 2 HRS"........... UNQUOTE

COUSIN's IS A HABITUAL LIER

HE WAS GIVEN COMMUNITY WORK..True FACT if YOU DONT BELIVE ME GOOGLE IT OR WHATEVER YOU CPU NERD"S DO TO FIND THIS STUFF...

IT AINT SLANDER WHEN IT"S THE TRUTH Matey ..
I HAVE HAD DEALING's WITH THE LAW BEFORE MATE OK HAVE YOU..

Well I understand, as a paying customer you're more likely to be upset, you've invested much more than I have into the game. If you really are that dissapointed then take action, if you believe you can, which assuming EA's legal representatives aren't braindead cows, you can't.
There's definitely something in their ToS that protects them in events like this.
Good luck though.

Dood you sound so much like one of the people ive pounded in a pub.....

You talk all this and that ok then when you make the gorrila angry

you then try to threaton the gorrila some more with legal's action...lol

then you get your face smashed in worse than if you just took your pounding like a man

You Need to realise something most rich people DONT
Some PEOPLE ARNT AFRAID OF PRISON OK KILLER
SO DONT THINK LAWYER"S CAN ALWAY"S PROTECT YOU OK

IN FACKT SLAMMIN WUSS BUT IN THE CAN DONT BOTHER ME(STILL BETTER THAN A WANK)

He could have every lawyer on eath to stand in front of him and as all public personality's know anny number or person can be got........HE STOLE FROM ME AND IM NOT HAPPY

NOW STOP POSTING MY THREAD"S BECUASE YOU ARE BEGIUNNING TO ENRAGE ME BEYOND THE JOKE... I THINK I JUST WANT OUT OF THIS GAME AND NEVER COME BACK

IM JUST MAD BECUAS IT WAS THE BEST FUKIN GAME EVER MADE TILL TO-NITE

(And THEY DONT GIVE A F.U.C.K THAT THE MASSES ONCE AGAIN PAY FOR THE COSEN FEW)

I bouth a gold weapon a royal shot gun a hour beforre the update now some usless rich BAS>TARD WILL MAKE ME OWN BECAUSE HE HAS AN UBER SHOOTY I COULD HAVE BOUGHT A HALF HOUR LATER FOR LESS

(THEY ADVERTIZE GETR THE TURKY B/F BENIFIT's WHILE THERE HERE)
I DID THIS LIKE A F.U.K.N IDIOT TRYING TO SUPPORT THEM AND GAME
then They dont say that thel be obselete in a week or two hour's for that matter..In MY CASE ?

Now after a few hours I think its not a good decision but i understand it. The wourld is all about money (sounds cruel but its true).
But this will realy hurt the game no new lvl 15 players at lvl 30 you will have enougth opponents anyways.

But as we in germany say "Geld regiert die welt"
translated "Money reigns the world"

Jeeze!... Jack up the prices why don't you!? Going from a whole month to 4 days!?... What if you are some one who isn't a very good player who doesn't get VP missions very often eh?... How are we supposed to pay for them!... I mean you have an oufit that is over 1000 VPs!!! That would be ridiculous!

With this you practically nerfed every player in the game! I know you need to pay your employees but you could you PLEASE find some middle ground on the pricing!?... You even got rid of the middle of the road widgets, and now since you have pratically forced people to buy them for the advantage you are going back on your original mission. <..> I will still play since it is still a good game on the basics... but boy you took a big hit with the sudden change.

u do this like: yeeeah we can buy the thing for free, what we want more from u guys!
but its no like that. u are masters of converting your words
for all my 7 months of loyal playing (and 8 days of playtime) milking VP
i can get that Ubers just for 6 days. then il get owned by stupid little kiddies who are rich, i dont like that, u conservatives.

as of VP prices...man, only nolifers who actualy play the game for 8 hours a day got innormal ammount of VP like 34k VP and such
man, actauly i barely kept supplying myself with the bandage, wrenches and weapons i liked, i got 2 heroes to supply and i want to experiment with new weapons and such too, and that costs VP. : /
at the end i started milk 50 VP a day for almolst not using wrenches, using lvl 1 bandages just to stop the poison running in my veins and the fire that raged on my flesh.
man, please, return the VP standart and the make the wrenchee and widgets at all to be VP... 140 VP for 10 bandages...no i wont pay that high price for that.

how many people have a lot of vp? what is "a lot of vp"? and what about people who DON'T have a lot of vp? EA, can you answer this please?
