Battlefield 2042’s Community Start Petition Hoping For a Refund

Disastreous and sad way to finish your Battlefield 2042 career.

Unsatisfied Battlefield 2042 fans started a petition hoping to get a refund on all platforms three months after launch. The reason for the petition, as they claim, is the lack of content and developer failure to deliver promised features even since launch. At the time of this writing, the petition reached 3720 signs, and they’re still growing by the minute. The petition can be found on

The petition states the following:

EA’s release of Battlefield 2042 was a mockery of every customer who purchased this video game for $70 (USD) due to EA’s false advertising of this video game.

Battlefield 2042 has costed consumers millions of dollars in damages and upset hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide.

Many promises made at launch were not kept, and Battlefield 2042 launched as unplayable according to many consumer reports. Even today, Battlefield 2042 has bugs which drastically changes the in-game experience so much that it’s deemed as a clearly unfinished release.

In the most recent earnings call by EA, it was pretty evident that Apex Legends has become the flagship shooter game for EA, which earnings bigger than Battlefield 2042 to EA. I believe this frustration comes from the false advertisement by EA, followed by a period of ignorance.

Recently the developer behind Battlefield 2042, shocked by the problems caused by the previous Battlefield 2042 update, was pushed to delay the most demanded core feature (scoreboard) in Battlefield for another month.

Battlefield 2042 launched on November 19 with plenty of turbulent features (either not working or missing) and a lousy optimization which caused players to seek fixes on their own. With tons of config-line changes, some of them could get a decent game flow, while others failed to meet their smooth balance.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
