Following the tweet, fans openly called out publishers EA and developers DICE for their actions in recent months. The community even pointed the figure at them for unclear plans and road maps or lack thereof.

Additionally, some individuals even highlighted that the idea of ignoring the Reddit community only makes matters worse. It adds to the already present feeling of lack of feedback implementation and the fans feeling “unheard” by the devs. They suggested the feedback from subreddits of the game is essential because of the community’s passion for the franchise.

Fans on Twitter directly took digs at the officials for everything that went wrong with Battlefield 2042. Moreover, they criticized the developers for the horrible state of Battlefield 2042.

Interestingly, a few fans, on the other hand, seemed to understand Freeman’s point. They seemingly understood the community manager’s point of view and asked if Reddit’s criticism would be open to discussion in the future. Surprisingly, the EA employee responded to these questions.

Of course, a few individuals expressed their disbelief and disappointment through GIFs and memes.
