A disgruntled Battlefield 2042 player by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto (not the actual inventor of Bitcoin, presumably) has started a petition calling for EA to admit its missteps with the latest installment of the FPS franchise and to give players a refund, alleging that the company engaged in false advertising and released a product that was unplayable at launch. The petition seems to be doing pretty well so far, having attracted over 30,000 signatures from like-minded Battlefield 2042 players, some of whom have described the game as being a “scam” and “disappointment.” A lawyer will be hired to take the case against EA once the petition reaches 50,000 signatures or more, according to Nakamoto.
Allow Refund for Battlefield 2042 on All Platforms (Change.org)
- EA’s release of Battlefield 2042 was a mockery of every customer who purchased this video game for $70 (USD) due to EA’s false advertising.
- Even today, Battlefield 2042 has bugs that drastically change the in-game experience so much that it’s deemed an unfinished release by many community members.
- Suppose this petition receives 50K signatures or more. In that case, one of the best class-action lawsuit lawyers in the country is willing to take our case against EA.

- I want to capture all Reddit posts regarding the things that are “wrong” with the game from the launch date until today. I need to document any updates released from DICE and any improvements, if any, since launch.
- We have collected a series of EA’s ads for the game pre-launch. We have collected all the statements made by Dice and EA to mitigate the negative effect of BF2042’s launch when Beta players had major concerns.
- Gamers, overall, are very genuine people who use their hard earned money to enjoy their time by escaping the harsh realities of this world. They do not hurt anyone, yet EA, Sony, and Microsoft are treating them as worthless by prohibiting a refund.
