    Come on EA. With as bad a track record as you have, making people angry with decisions that don't make any sense, why not just donate the money yourself instead of trying to get others to pony up for it. You'll look a lot better in the public's eyes that way. Right now, I just hope you don't do the same as March of Dimes, which for anyone who doesn't know, MoD is the charity where you donate $1.00, but only $0.10 actually goes to the charity work, while the remaining $0.90 goes into the pockets of the executives of that organization.

    11/10 Reading comprehension as well. I said INSTEAD of a charity. Be the ones who give the money, not try to get others so they can lower their own costs. I'm sure they have billions saved from all those studios they've closed, micro transactions, loot boxes, etc.

    I mean ea is bad and loves money but now they wanna raise money to shoot the families of victims. They went too far and should be put in jail.

    Your reading skills are still impeccable. It also mentions that this is in response to a community outcry wishing to be able to support the victims.
    There's absolutely nothing wrong with hosting a charity event, and it's more than most companies would do.

    I know some of you idiots aren't intelligent enough to think for yourselves, but in this case jumping on the EA hate wagon makes you look like a complete, ignorant dumbass.
    This is a very generous showing, and no one would have bat an eyelash if they did NOTHING. $1million is not in any sense a small amount, and their companies networth does not change that. They're not obligated to donate their entire companies worth for this event.

    Get over yourself.

    Does anybody read locations?
    Ea could donate more than just $1,000,000. Sure, it’s a lot for a person, but not for EA. They’ve got plenty of cash from their microtransactions. Oh well, at least they ARE donating.
