    I doubt a random person that plays video games would immediately know who they are and what games they made. I was only aware of them for almost a year now

    Hnng... I guess it is time to sell my EA stock (+300%)... but that means I'll also have to pay the taxes. God damn it.

    ActiBlizz had an even worse performance than EA during the last year and their stock tumbled yesterday 10% as well on the EA news. Fortnite sucks up all the time, attention and cash.

    I did hear that EA insiders were caught selling off stock early. I'm guessing something is coming, something big and bad.

    Here's to hoping. A few arrests for insider trading would really tank EA, and for the betterment of the world.

    Anthem is coming,even they know that it won't be doing them any stock favours. They are running out of studios and IPs,the next few years will be rough. They might even die.

    It’d only be illegal insider trading if an insider trades after the trading window for insiders is closed.

    There’s nothing wrong with selling stock if you’re an insider. My last company I received stock and I’d always sell it ASAP cuz I knew the company wasn’t generally headed in a good direction.

    LoL everyone and their mum is selling shit.

    [​IMG]

    Put in money,that is around 184 millions in sold shares. Also their share volume is a little bit more than 30 millions.




    Edit: Looking at that shit, a fast buy and sell could make some money for people. Their stocks will jump the moment Anthem hit the market,if you buy now and sell it then you could make a few bucks.

    It is a fad after all,it is fascinating how every next fad is lower IQ than the last one.

    Apex Legends is a EA game, fyi. Still N1 on Twitch after like 2 or 3 days now. That game has too much potential, if they play their cards right that game can be as (if not way, way more) popular than PUBG and possibly only second to Fortnite.

    I think the last game I purchased from EA was Dead Space 2, used for 20€ on PS3 after it released.
    Between Ubisoft and EA I don't know which is the worst honestly: both create games around marketing researches and targets, and I end up on not giving a single fuck on their released because they all feel the same game.
    From time to time I use to spend 4€ on Origin Access to play something which could be interesting like Unravel or Fe, but even with those I end up disappointed. Fe was a chore to play, it's all the same and even if it's like 4 hours long you do the same stuff from the start to the end, and the same applies to Unravel, which at least has a nice art direction.

    Its flavor of the month, I am torn as in one hand that would completely fuck Epic little retarded adventure if suddenly they became PUBG 1.03 as on the other hand its fucking EA. But regardless its still way too earlier to say.
