Irish Battlefield 1943 players upset over exclusion of Ireland


Battlefield 1943 players living in Ireland are a bit perturbed that the game fails to display the country's flag on their profile pages and instead only flies the UK flag.

Apparently, if you live in Northern Ireland or Ireland, "EA won’t allow you to identify yourself as “Irish” despite the 1998 Belfast agreement saying otherwise", according to Seenit.

When contacted, EA apologized stating that players game profiles cannot be altered because Ireland is "not listed distinctively and is included in Great Britain."

Oh dear.
