Hey I mean not everyone on the internet loves everything and I think that it is great we live in a country where people can share their opinions.

After all wouldn't you rather listen to critics rather than the transient game community in general?

And the whole loot crate debacle, well that's just so that the consumer can customize their experience, and you wouldn't want to take away peoples freedom to choose like spousal rape. Would you?

i dont know i dont think my mac could run it and only have a ps3 :( i dunno, i think the whole loot crate thing is fucking shit, especially in those card games like harthstone and dragonball z dokkan battle, where like you need to have the best cards and the best cards are hard to get and so you're either left getting beated all the time or you fork up some cashdollars to win.

not to mention how they manipulate the system to encourage you to spend, they literally monitor everything to see what cards they will give you, so they will give you a whole bunch of good "trash" cards to make you feel like that really good card is around the corner.

oh heres another amazing video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dkr0oCw94G0 He basically goes over similar things but there is a real psychology behind getting people hooked on loot boxes.

its important to remember that grinding is an option but its so much easier to pay and as the guy in the last video states, most people dont have the amount of hours needed to obtain the card especially when that card can only be obtained through loot boxes, for example grinding for the currency to pay for lootboxes and getting nothing.

I know the star wars game had an option to buy darth vader outright but there is an addictive quality to the randomness of the gacha which is why channels where they open up packs of cards or even lootboxes are so popular on youtube because you get that same buzz but none of the reward and then you start to want that reward so you could go into a game pre-disposed to being someone who buys in app purchases.

Which by the way, is exactly how gambling/slot machines work.

They really are and you should feel very bad for your actions EA because we all know that star wars wasnt the first game you tried loot boxes, im looking at all the fifa games and alike where you have to buy packs to get certain players and shit. its disgraceful and you should feel disgraced.

Why is everyone criticising EA? I've only ever known EA as an excellent video game company and pioneer of the early home computer games industry. EA has always had my enjoyment as their primary concern and their community involvement is phenomenal.
