THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION.
To begin with.
I Spent exactly 8555 Battlefounds Only on weapons (I’m not even counting what I have spent on Uniforms & Boosters)
and i bought ALL my ELITE WEAPONS based 1st on the Ammo & Accuracy (Recoil, Bullet Drop/Spread, Range). . . . and 2nd on the damage of each weapon . . .
Since all +3 Weapons are a real piece of “work” . . .
The Community asked for you to either remove the 20th December patch or the refund of the battlefounds (REAL MONEY) . . .
In a later post you basically said that You are not giving us a refund of our money . . .
And Since the community keep asking you for the Removal of the 20th December update . . .
And you as Game Developer you keep ignoring the community' request to Remove the December 20 update and give us back the Elite/Veteran Weapons . . .
I know that all Free Games to generate money, game developers create “Premium” Items that can only be bought with REAL MONEY . . . To encourage a player to Buy this “Premium” item, “Premium” Items must have a clear advantage over the “FREE” base item available in the game . . .
So the more premium Items a game have, more money Game developers get . . .
Sooo . . . in other words . . .
You are getting payed with the money that we "invest" on your game in exchange of Battlefounds . . .
And from all the Free FPS that I have played this is the first game where I have been scammed by the Developers . . .
The 1st time you nerfed our “Weapons” was when you release the “NEW BOOSTERS” (Claymore, RPG, Chopper, Jet, grenade, etc…) and again the community was not happy (claymores, grenades, rpgs, skill, got nerfed) *I was not happy now it takes 3 mines/grenades/RPGs to kill 1 person, unless we buy the boosters . . . Claymores & grenades became useless to my recon . . . and now I have to buy a Booster, for something that I used to have with training points . . .
But hey looks like the community forgot about this . . . because most of them are happy with RPG & Mortar Booster . . .
And months later EAzy said: “Ok we need more money any ideas?”
And someone said “I have a great idea to make money . . . Lets lower the price of all permanent Elite & Veteran Weapons, so this noobs buy them, and then we remove them from the game, and give the player an identical black weapon, but with only +2 damage over the base weapons . . .
And the 20th December update was like:
Ok you bought a SCAR, but guess what you are getting this brand new +3 Nerf Gun . . . (and it’s not even +3, it’s really only a +2 . . . ) WTF!?!?!?!?
The Idea of Elite/Veteran weapons is to make a weapon with a clear advantage over a base weapon . . . and in order to get an Elite/veteran weapon one Must Pay REAL MONEY (BATTLEFOUNDS)
Each player had the option to either rent the weapon for a limited time, with credits or Battlefounds. Or To Buy it permanently for approximately 700-1100 battlefounds . . .
Every single person that choose to bought a PERMANET Elite/Veteran Weapon, did it to have something better than a base weapon, and because we were told that it was PERMANENT . . . (I think permanent means that you will keep this weapon as it is from the day you bought it until the day the game is closed)
And like if taking our Elite/Veteran Weapons and replace them for these +3 weapons isn’t enough . . .
you also raise the price of all Permanent weapons to 2500BF’s, that by the way if you buy/rent 1 do not expect to get a +3… cause you won’t.
You told the Community that you remove the Legacy Attachments (Elite/Veteran weapons) claiming that the game was unfair to the players that use base weapons, and didn’t buy battlefounds . . .
Now after THIS . . .
Is it a fair game to those who PAY REAL MONEY for weapons that we do not longer have?
Is it fair for those that pay your salary?
Is It fair for those who have been supporting this game since the Closed Beta?
And After thousands of complains from the community all you did was saying:

As you all know, we recently removed “Legacy” attachments from Battlefield Play4Free as a way to introduce a better level of balance in the game. We appreciate all the feedback that you’ve been giving our team since this change and we assure you, this was a tough decision and not an easy one to make. That being said, we believe that it will deliver the most fun and enjoyable gaming experience to all players and as such these changes will remain.
In the spirit of continually improving Battlefield Play4Free, we are listening to your feedback and responding. Over the next few weeks, we will be implementing several community requested changes to the “+3” weapons:
- Damage will be increased across all ranges of +3 weapons
(Currently +3 weapons do 2 additional base (body) damage over all ranges compared to their non +3 counterpart. This will be increased to 3 addition points of damage)
- Base ammo count will be increased across all +3 weapons
(This will vary depending on the weapon and the weapon type)
In addition, we will be making some changes to currently imbalanced boosters (for example, the Mortar Strike and RPG Boosters).
If you have additional questions about the “Legacy” attachments, please refer to this Q&A. As always, we greatly appreciate your feedback and if you wish to comment on these new changes, please feel free to join in below.
The Battlefield Play4Free Team
Your are actually telling me that this “+3 weapons” were really only +2 weapons!?
I mean . . really . . .
WTF ! ! ! ! ! !
And about the ammo of the weapons . . . after the amazing work you have done so far, we will get 5 extra bullets on each weapon if we are lucky

And I Totally agree with what Parrina said
For me, it’s like if they just don’t care about the community (BF's consumers), after all we already gave them our money and we are not getting it back . . .
It’s like all we can do is keep complaining about it, cause you just don’t care about the time & money we have invest in your game . . .
Question to the Devs . . .
Do you even care about this game and it’s players at all?
Sorry for my english . . .
