After a lot of backlash from the fans and the gaming community, Battlefield subreddit has decided to prohibit any future threads regarding Battlefield V’s “historical accuracy”.
If you don’t know, there have been a lot of complaints and dislikes on the official Battlefield Youtube account due to the gaming community saying that Battlefield V is historically inaccurate. This includes the inclusion of the main female protagonist. The common perception is that there were no women in World War II.
A new policy has shared in a post which is titled: We’re done, its over. New rule: No more bitching about historical accuracy, it’s a game, not a history book. Violations will have consequences.
Moderator u/sloth_on_meth says:
“Reddit admins have confirmed brigading and the modteams of the subs in question are fully cooperating to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Hate us all you want but we’re done with this bullshit.
“This issue has been discussed in a million fucking threads but we’ve never been brigaded more than we have in the past months. Admins can only keep up with so much. We’re done wasting our time on this, every point has been made, no you’re not sexists or whatever, but this shit is just repetitive now.”
“We get that y’all have valid criticism about Battlefield V and the customisation options within the game. Sadly, this subreddit has proven to be unable to have a civil discussion about these things without devolving into name calling and slapfights.”
Lastly, they updated the post by saying ”WE ARE NOT PAID BY, CONTROLLED BY, OR AFFILIATED TO, EA OR DICE.” it’s clear that people on Reddit are tired of people complaining about the history shown in Battlefield V.
Other than that, former DICE chief Patrick Söderlund shared with everyone at E3 by saying that those who don’t believe women were a part of World War 2 are simply uneducated.
