EA is a company that has been characterized by its multiplayer games and aggressive monetization in recent years. Let’s remember that star wars battlefront was one of the main responsible for starting the conversation around the loot boxes. Now, The company has given something to talk about by sharing a message that has infuriated the players.
As always, one of the trends on Twitter has become quite popular, to the point that large companies have joined the conversation. This is the case of the meme “It’s a 10, but…”. Thus, EA thought it would be funny to make fun of single player games with the following message:
“They’re a 10, but they only like to play single player games.”
They’re a 10 but they only like playing single-player games
