EA is not customerfriendly. EA rips you off. Read the recent forum thread from their "free to play" Battlefield play4free community: http://battlefield.play4free.com/en/forum/showthread.php?tid=61323
It has all come down to this: The pros finally get their hands on the controller and three teams are whittled down to one. See who comes out on top.
We've dragged them through the mud, buried them alive, shot at them, and so much more here on The Controller. Neighbor, Leroy, Bravo, Chet, Mr. X, and Ayiiia all played well, but in the end, we're down to our final three teams. Today, we kick off the finale with our most physical physical challenge yet. The winner gets automatic placement in the finals, while the remaining two teams must duke it out in a semifinal match of Battlefield 3. And this time, the pros get to touch the controller and fight alongside their teammates. Who will rise to the top and take home the grand prize? If you're ready to find out, click the video below.
Happy holidays everyone--take care and we'll see you next time!
@Demanufactur3 thanks for the info, but they hardly showed any footage of Tsquared, which is odd imo, thinking back, Mrs V. was being kinda aggressive, i know how it is sometimes...
If ProoFy hadn't walked out, no one would have had to know about the controller issue. Because he did, the producers needed to explain to the viewers why he left, so now everyone on gaming forums and sites are witnessing his arrogance. I don't know what job ProoFy works, but if you compare it to a minimum wage job, I'd take a chance at $50,000 for a ~30 minute gaming session sitting down in a chair any day. Like they say in the Lottery, you can't win unless you try.
Jesus... "what a shocker"... :P Who could have seen this coming...? Like they were pimping Miss Violence from minute one..., with interviews and ****. lol This is FAKER than Lady Gaga...
@Hobbes444 Because they were sponsored by AMD. And if you go high enough on the price chain you get some incredible stuff from AMD. What I'm confused about, is why they used a ps3 for competition and pc for practice... pc should have been main platform. Kb/m pwns controller.
well i disagree...if that pro gammer girl can use glasses why cant proofy use his FPS freak. come on. and 28 12 thats nothing....just saying. not beeing an ass but damn chill out. ive seen waaay better.
Lol, I can't stand b**** ass punks like Proofy, the world could definitely do without these softies. I can't believe dudes like Proofy actually refer to themselves as a man. What's worse is some silly chic will fall for a wuss like this. That Mrs. Violence chic got way more heart than him. Alex shoudl have swung on Proofy after the cameras were off.
is proofy a little baby???? you shouldn't have to have some stupid analog stick addon to play a $%^& game. I'm pretty good and i don't have some $%^& analog stick addon.
the production company must've put 1,000 dollars into making this show, with half of it going to making the people cuss every other word in the script. AND WHY THE %^&* DO THEY USE AMD %^&$?????!!?!?!?!!?!?!? Intel+ nVidia= AWESOMENESS, Intel + Radeon= fail, Amd+ Radeon = EPIC FAIL.
I feel so bad for Alex, this dude is an awesome comedian and for his team mate to screw him over like that is terrible. What a baby!
And Proofy... what a little b%$#h. Wow. Any gamer cred he had is just gone. Dare to call yourself a pro gamer and not adapt to what your playing on or with... not cool. That's like saying I'm only going to play if I get loaded dice or a weighted ball. Real sportsman like...
Well that last physical challenge was kind of pointless. Might have well as just handed it to the Red team and been done with it.
Actually "Proofy" Alex CAN relate. He's barely touched a controller at all. I hate playing an FPS with a regular contoller myself, but I'd gladly give up my mouse controller for a chance at 50 grand.
wow, glad to see Dark Blue take it! yeah, I feel bad for Alex...totally got the shaft. I honestly thought this show would be stupid, but it grew on me over the couple months it was on. Hope they make some occassional appearances on this site :)
Thank god it's over. I knew some gamers were, let's call them socially awkward, but seriously though, where did they manage to find these people...
proofy is such a b@#&$ ok what a pro gamer he is he can only play with only that f@#&$*! stick gadget? if i play against proofy sometime i wish i'll crush and show him what a little b!tch he is. that's another story but severn and mrs.violence win i bet that ts. would win without edgar.
Wow that Poofy guy is such a little B@#$%! First, you shouldn't of even signed up if you are just going to wimp out because you can't mod you controller. Second, what "pro gamer" does not go with the standard in tournaments? I'm sure that not the only tournament that requires a standard controller when playing on a console..
OMFG. Really? He won't play without that stick gadget? Srsly, that's lame. And I understand the rest - why should he be able to have an advantage? But... he's just a kid. Another thing - the scores looked kinda lame for the "pros", especially T2. Wonder why.
I don't see why they didn't let him use his silly little adapter, but that's a separate issue. You're supposed to have your team-mate's back. ALWAYS. He treated his team "mate" like he didn't even exist. Shameful. I actually had great respect for Proofy up until this stunt. Forever a whiny ass little b!tch.
oh, and to all the people saying it was set up...how would they decide who to kick off? I'd hate it if they said to me "b!tch like a little girl and quit coz we want ratings"
where the f*ck does proofy live? i wanna go there and kick his a$$ so bad!!! also, good on ya mrs V! gr8 job...btw, yur hot! :D
Proofy isn't even old enough to be playing BF3. He has to be at the most 5 yrs old >_> I hate little kids playing shooters
The show was a f***king lie. more like a TV commercial. This show obviously has a director who indicates which team will make it to the next level. Are u kidding me? they train on a PC and then play with a PS3?? Do u think we are a bunch of idiots watching this? P.S: Ah and some1 finds this Jonny Moseley I wanna punch him in the face.
Give it up to Alex, who was still smiling even though his teammate bailed. He should win a prize for good sportsmanship.
Congratulations to the winners and to Gamespot. This show was amazing, I had a lot of fun watching both the challenges and the battlezone matches. If you guys ever wondered, I can guarantee that at least one GS user loved this series and wishes that you do a lot more like this, and that is user is Toplinkar, or Andrew, if you prefer to call me by name. And Proofy just proved that he is a coward. He couldn't beat the Dark Blue team with or without his thingy. WTF was he talking about? I play just fine with my PS3 controller and when I play elsewhere I don't mind using a keyboard/mouse, Xbox360 controller or Wiimote. And I always have fun, winning or losing. To me, that's what makes me a gamer, to always have a good time. :)
God..... what has Proofy done???? Abandoned his team mate Alex after a week's struggle and he call himself a Pro. He is unworthy to be called pro that too for a very small inconvenience with a "controller". He could never be a gamer with that attitude.He must learn to confront the situations head on instead of running like a ****ing coward. Proofy proved to be a NOOB today.
ProoFy should be ashamed to call himself a pro gamer. In my eyes, ProoFy is NOT a professional gamer. Any professional should be able to handle diversity, setbacks, and opposition of any kind. Do you think Michael Jordan quit when he had the flu and STILL led his team to victory? What about when Brett Favre had to perform on Monday Night Football days after his father died? Did he quit on his team then? For ProoFy to quit on Alex all for a controller accessory is ridiculous. I lost all respect for ProoFy. It sickens me as a gamer and competitor to see such a coward. ProoFy, don't you ever call yourself a professional again, coward.
I cant belive that a-hole proofy let his team mate down like that. And for what!? A stupid thing like a controler?! Thats weak man and a true coward! I feel sorry for Alex that he got stuck with a d-bag like proofy. But anyway Grats to Mrs Violence and Severn! Prety cool of the Red Team to the los like men.
@Dizzy1976 Hell I'm only 15 and i wouldnt wuss out on my team mate if it meant 50 grand, even if i had to use a NES controller for the ps3
LOLz on Poofy... f*cking wannabe pro playing shooters with a controller. Bet even I would own him with keyboard and mouse. Wouldn't have guessed he is such ha b*tch and lets his mate down
Can't believe he let down his teammate and 50G for some stupid stick he's been playing for 3 years. I would never let my teammate or 50G down for some stick. Either this episode was set up and they payed Poofy extra cash or he's a douchbag. I feel sad for Alex. The last 28 kills were pretty cool
I think that this program was fixed from the starting.How could someone just Quit because they did not allow him to play with a some kind of a controller.It just does not make sense.I bet they set this episode up just to impress the public.I could have played with a BROKEN KEYBOARD/CONTROLLER FOR 50000.There are only two explanations for this either everything was set up and dark blue had to win or Proofy is a filthy rich person who always wants his way.But i side with the first explanation
Just found out an interesting bit of info on our favorite douchebag-in-residence...Proofy. I guess his MLG team "Leverage' is sponsored by KontrolFreeks. This is the same company that makes those controller extenders that little baby Proofy didn't want to play without. Makes you wonder doesn't it? I wonder if Proofy refuses to take tests in school if he isn't allowed to use his favorite pencil?
