Despite EA's changes post the beta, Battlefront II still rewards players handsomly for spending lots of money on loot crates, while making the playing field severe stacked against those who don't.
What logical sense would it make to keep spending money on a game or endless unrealistic hours if you don't? Greedy company forgets people already paid a fee just to slip a disc in and play.
It’s really pathetic. The game is currently sitting at a 0.7 User Score on Metacritic. Glad gamers are standing strong against this garbage! EA will never get a dime from me again unless the change for the better and respect thier consumers.
Very, unsurprisingly, let down by sooo many weak professional gaming sites refusing to fully rip into EA and their use of free to play bs in a full price game. Sure, educated gamers are doing their best to inform those less well informed to avoid this mess but with the media in EA's thrall is it enough? I doubt it. Too many 8 and 9 out of tens urging us to buy the game with no mention of the pay to win and grind or pay loot box economies its built on. As a huge SW fan it hurts to miss out but I cannot support EA and BF2 and manage to sleep at night.
Everybody needs to boycott EA for this crap.
