Geoff Harrower forced to pull game-breaking tuner set from EA UFC 3

EA UFC 3 features tuner sets enabling developers to “hotfix” the game with updates that are smaller than patches. Unfortunately these tuner sets turned out to be defective and were found to crash the game.  It is not known why EA failed to detect these crashes and flaws in testing, which Microsoft and Sony require prior to patch releases. Some are speculating that EA implemented “tuner sets” to bypass platform requirements. Many users have reported that EA UFC 3 is plagued with game-breaking bugs and glitches.

EA developer admits UFC 2 was released full of major flaws

EA UFC 3 developer Geoff Harrower has admitted that EA knowingly released UFC 2 full of major flaws. The post came about after a user posted a negative review of newly-released EA UFC 3. Geoff was shocked by the negative review, expecting a much better reception than during the release of the previous game in the series, EA UFC 2. He also promised not to read any replies to his admission.

Geoff Harrower specifically admitted that “UFC 2 had stun lock parries on every strike, strikes that did almost no damage with no vulnerability system, and random health events.”

Geoff Harrower is best known for being a developer on NBA Elite 11, a game that EA was forced to cancel 8 days before release.

Geoff Harrower apologizes

Geoff Harrower, Lead Gameplay Engineer for EA SPORTS UFC 2, posted this message on Operation Sports after EA cancelled one of his earlier games. NBA Elite 11 was a basketball game for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 that was cancelled 8 days before release. Developers were under the pressure of an 18-month development cycle, similarly to EA UFC 1 & 2.

Users begin destroying physical copies of EA UFC 1 & 2

We’ve received a lot of questions recently about the new trend that has gone viral in the EA UFC community. More and more users, frustrated with the state of the game, have started to break their game discs in half. Unfortunately, this is not an option for those customers swindled into purchasing digital copies of the game.

“We had to do something,” Dana said. “There was a lot of back and forth, he-said, she-said type of stuff. It ends today.”

As part of the changes, Dana White has appointed a new moderator, fishingtime.
