We'll see what happens when people cancel subs left and right because people can't afford to play end content anymore. I think some here will eat their words then.
BW/EA probably don't care since they have big revenue from other games. Haven't you noticed the lack of customer support here? They don't care because everyone complains and there's no motivation for them to care. All they see is complain, complain, complain.
As a dev I would of done this to laugh at people.
