Electronic Arts has earned the dubious distinction of being named a contender again this year (it won last year) for the annual Consumerist award, the 2013 Worst Company in America award. EA will have some stiff competition this year including Bank of America, AT&T, Ticketmaster, Comcast, PayPal, and Sallie Mae – amongst many others. Some notable inclusions for this year include Carnival Cruise (for its “Poop Cruise”), JC Penney, and Anheuser-Busch.
Winners are determined in a deathmatch-style tournament bracket play-offs. Fans vote for their favorite (least favorite?) company to advance. Eventually it will be two final horrible companies slugging it out for your ultimate disapproval.
Starting tomorrow, the Consumerist will begin launching two to three WCIA bouts per day. Voting will only be open for three hours for each poll.
