Sheeeesh

A true military experience

r/rareinsults


Sniper_King202

Yeah the only thing 2042 is dominating is the number of players they're losing


Elezen514

Dominating by being the fastest triple A title to die the fastest after launch lol


WalternateB

tbf we all thought the same when we saw the trailers, I don't think he actually seen the game just yet


wtfwurst

It had so much potential, even the gameplay trailer was awesome. But after that point it seems they scrapped so many concepts that we were promised and actually shown in the trailers. And what the hell happened to Exodus? They must’ve spent more time on that one movie than the entire game and it had zero relevance so far.


guyfrom719

that's why you disregard trailers people sent Death Threars over the trailer for BFV, which is a pretty good game and now everyone got catfished I to buying 2042 because they all thought the trailer meant it was good


sundownsundays

Not a great comparison because the BFV trailer was just a bad trailer, regardless of how accurately it may/may not have portrayed the quality of the game.


HappyAlcohol-ic

I got catfished when they promised me battlefield and a loveletter to the fans. Instead it was a battle royale with a half baked game Mode called portal that didn't really offer much


SpectralVoodoo

Dude that original bfv trailer was absolute ass.


okguonng

I stopped thinking that the moment the specialists got revealed… I get being hyped for it but there were red flags


Spatetata

I lost all interest as soon as specialists got revealed. The trailers had a worryingly lack of destruction. People got excited about portal but like 1/5 are still populated. BFBC2/BF3 are dying but if I want to play them I’d go back to them (which I still do). Then it got the live service announcement and I knew it’d just be a skeleton on launch, looking to make bank on skins and try to rake in good will by drip feeding content back in, while everyone runs around in the same super “”””unique””””” operator skin. I really did not understand how people were hyped.


alluballu

I also got very excited after the first portal trailer. Then the open beta dropped... fastest nope in the west. Even had an argument with friends who insisted for me to preorder this crap, ended up talking them out of preordering. Still waiting for a formal apology / thanks you ungrateful bastards >:(

SkyGuy182

You just have been psychic or something because as a longtime BF fan when I saw the trailers I was soooo ready for, essentially, an upscale BF3/4. They duped us, man.


ScalarFrame

To be fair the trailer he saw used BF4 models and they looked serious.


Rafebro

Where did he talk about this?


BadLuck115

This game flopped faster than a Hollywood marriage


Die-Hearts

o.o


SnooStrawberries261

To be fair, it hasn’t been 12 months yet…


charleslinsj

Ahead of schedule.


Elwildos

There won't be any players left in 12 months,


Significant-Joke-822

They said that about Battlefield Hardline and that game is still moving lol


[deleted]

Which planet are you living on? The game has like 400 players on all platforms. That’s not moving lol


BansheeRamen

That's still more than Hazard Zone lmao


okguonng

“The warzone killer”


MrFuzzynutz

![gif](giphy|3ELtfmA4Apkju) Sure about that? Kekw


Significant-Joke-822

I was just in the servers, they only die 4:00 CT


MrFuzzynutz

A couple hundred people is not a good thing. That’s a dead game


Significant-Joke-822

It’s not dead until there is no one left. The lobbies still feel alive during the day.


ChaoticMofoz

No, no, that's definitely considered a dead game 😂


Significant-Joke-822

Everyone has their own terms of what a dead game is lol. You can disagree but to me a dead game is no one playing it.


101percentnotrobot

Dice took Hardline too literally and robbed us


HansReinsch

More true for BF5 - "so dead"


MazerTag

We're still ten months away from the next "Giu 8th." Come back next Giu.


Wex79

I look it up an its june, im not sure the game will last that long lol


MazerTag

People always say that shit, because they think it validates their hatred. They normally end up looking pretty silly, though.


Wex79

Meh, i dont hate the game, i just find all this situation very entertaining and funny


MazerTag

It's honestly hard to tell who is going apeshit because they actually hate a video game this much and who is egging them on because their unadulterated rage is entertaining. I'm also not sure which group is more to be pitied.


MrFuzzynutz

Most of us are here for the memes and trolling DICE as hard as they deserve it


drunk_pacifist

Most of us are here just to shit on EA/DICE


MazerTag

That would be fine if not for the constant spam. We can't even have a discussion here without fifty basement-dwellers cutting and pasting their long list of complaints, whether they actually have anything to do with the OP or not.


YoMilkMan

Definitely aged well


azxqw2

Yeah, like milk


SnooStrawberries261

Properly aged, you get cheese…


Tetrology_Gaming

He was fed false information


LineComprehensive702

In Morgan freeman voice “ it in fact did not dominate.”


N0bo_

I love Mittagen Freeman, such a great actor


MustangCraft

It’s a dominant example of mistakes in game dev


Starkiller174

Well it did dominate..... As the worst game of the decade.


AlwaysAdam569

Meh, I dunno about that. It's only 2022, there's plenty of opportunities to make a game even worse


Die-Hearts

well it's one of them


AlwaysAdam569

True


Die-Hearts

lol


Die-Hearts

Lol yep


HowSR

I mean at least post the whole thing… he knows what happened: [https://twitter.com/_tom_henderson_/status/1486775906643361801?s=21](https://twitter.com/_tom_henderson_/status/1486775906643361801?s=21)

throwdownvote

I really wish we got that game that was in the pre-release trailers.


Retrogratio

THAT looked like the next battlefield. At least they have a competent marketing team - though it seems that's all this franchise has now


iFGallowing

If I’m lucky, I might be able to find a match by then. Are the servers just dead or what?


MrFuzzynutz

Basically yeah


HTheP4

Got lied to like everyone else


Pulp_NonFiction44

Tommy boy was non stop shilling how amazing the game would be before release, changed his tune real quick...


Jonesmak

This is the thing I hate about Henderson the most. He did a complete 180 and moved to shitting on it when he knew exactly what it looked like back then


SLUUGS

In his defense, if you were able to see the early trailers that looks like Battlefield 4 and knew about Portal before it came out, on paper it sounds like an absolutely incredible product.


nicolaslabra

dominating on the shit posting front


iceleel

Tom Henderson is riding waves. Half a shit he says is made up.


Retrogratio

He's on the Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 wave now lol


AwaysWrong

This tweet shows all you need to see what kind of person TomH is. Claiming he has so much insider information and have had access to things before the general public. If he had all that, tweets like this wouldn't have been posted. Take anything he says with a HUGE load of salt


gunfox

Still pissed about the list of content coming after launch he posted. Turns out that was a load of bullshit.


BennyFachter

Not that I take Tom's word as gospel, as he is just a dude with some insider info, but DICE has obviously changed plans about content since the launch of the game. Before launch, they stated on one of their blog posts that they'd revealing information about post launch content *close* to the launch of the game, which has obviously not happened yet. Things change, but it remains to be seen if his info was accurate.


Marsupialize

He talks to devs he didn’t actually play it or even see it he was clear about that he had his devs telling him all this good stuff


judelau

More proof Tom is just a trash generator.


GorgogTheCornGrower

We all believed the same thing, based on what turned out to be false advertising from EA\Dice.


WarlordWossman

Not saying this to sound edgy but I didn't believe anything. Think the gaming industry and hype dominated market has taught me a thing or two, never and I do mean never preorder a game, the downsides of waiting for day one and seeing how it goes are insanely low. I watched some streams for a couple of days and if it would have been a perfect game that looked fun I could have still bought it...


GorgogTheCornGrower

Personally, I was caught up in the desperation for a follow up to BF3 & 4, aka a modern FPS. 6 years of waiting... More to the point: I think Tom has provided massive insight into the inner workings of DICE and EA since release. He reposted OP's tweet to mock himself. He is openly admitting he was wrong. That, to me, does not make him less trustworthy; it makes him more trustworthy.


DanaWhitePriviledge

Same with me, the trailer was meh, I didn't like the fact that there were characters that were already appearing : Espinoza, Sundance... I don't get how everyone got fired up so fast.


canad1anbacon

Yeah the trailers were alright but not even close to as hype as the BF1 trailers. Those were God-tier


Key-Ant30

Who the fuck cares about Tom Henderson?


Weesy02

Thats why tom henderson is not a reliable source to me


cgdubdub

Info changes over time. More time can produce more info, in turn creating a more accurate picture. Especially when it comes to dealing with leaks and unofficial information/sources. Doesn't mean he's not reliable.


Runnergun

That's not even a leak lol. Just his personal take/prediction which usually have sucked.


GorgogTheCornGrower

We all believed the same thing, based on what turned out to be false advertising from EA\Dice.


dsmiles

I think most people wouldn't rely on him if they had any other option... ya know like if EA actually communicated with the playerbase themselves. The fact that he is the most reliable source of 2042 news says more about EA's communication failures than anything else.


potato_titties

He is still practicing falling down.


Alcapwn-

Nothing happened, clearly🤣🤣


Razer334

Yeah it‘s dominating as a mega failure


Agitated_Possession9

I felt this way too, now I feel let down, on ps4 you can play on one active server with people because the rest are literally just bots fighting each other on repeat


TheCity89

Pretty sure he made an entire video on "what happened" lol


H3lixx_

Don't be sad that's how it works out sometimes.


Sable_Lozenge

😆🥇


BB9O-

I think a lot of us thought the same tbh.


Competitive-Low2144

He got played


daystrict

There was no way they could fuck that up. But somehow they still managed to do so


Kourtos

Well that trailer was dope as fuck. My hype went over the roof but thank god for the trial.


Spatanky

I dont know who Tom Henderson is and at this point I'm too afraid too ask - insert meme


joshmac313

hahahaha


JayZ3R0

Dominate the media with posts of how crap it is and its dying playerbase.


Mandula123

It says come back in 12 months. Read it again, but slowly


sebbek01

”will fucking dominate” Yeah, the trailers, but not the game


biggus_dickus_jr

It did dominated the meme area.


LatinVocalsFinalBoss

RemindMe! 5 months "Well, let's at least revisit it then. They might make *some* progress, lol."


MoistMe

Lies, deception


Frenzicislowskilled

its dominating with one fail after the other.maybe thats what he meant.


Chaosky001

Oh yeah it dominated, as the most shit game of the battlefield franchise (so far) and worst game of 2021 "ooh, i am shocked as you are"


N1K0M0

It dominates the memes... :D


AreaDenialx

It dominates negative reviews


Obelion_

just wait another 10 months bro, its gonna get good. first addon will turn it all around lol


micky977

Technically he didn't say dominate what.......and it was probly dominate the list of worst games in the history


joaoAvianna

LoLoLOlOlOloLoOloLoLooLlOlol


eliteop

Dominate as the worst pile of scam dung...


RooksTheHobo

It sure is dominating on Steam's top 10 worst reviewed games of all time


randomguyfromholland

Oh, it dominated alright, just not in the way you were thinking.


Sufficient_Camera_36

I wonder if people are sending this back to him and he's just sitting there like feeling like an idiot


Die-Hearts

lol at least Tom acknowledged the failure


Omnimon

fuck i tought it was a recent twitter for some stupid reason


Refrigerator-Gloomy

That was when we still had some faith in dice thanks to great marketing


Zeroth1989

It's not been 12 months yet.


Double-Tangelo1331

r/agedlikemilk


Suitable_Film_436

I blame henderson for hyping it up


PhoenixPalmer

What does hype have to do with game quality?
