This is my worry too, are people just going to let this slide by. Are we going to have a similar uproar when they bring it back and change nothing?
This is a worry. Time will tell.
We can’t afford to let this Slide. This is a horrible practice that needs to stop on paid games. Go FTP and implement this then.
I know hardcore gamers will still pay attention but the larger casual audience probably wont be as attentive and on to the next thing.
Hopefully they move on quick and the the online components are deserted in a couple of weeks because that's where they were trying to force all this crap with false "longevity". I'm hoping they broke it's real legs trying to give it expensive prosthetics it didn't even need.
We wont but we'll see if it does damage to this level
i see a rally but not as big as the one we just had
Lets hope it’s big enough!
ill definitely keep my focus on this for sure. >:|
Light the beaCONS!
I sure didn't let it slide and voted with my wallet by NOT buying the game. I bought BF1 and it was a great game. Then they come out with BF2 with all this loot box nonsense. NOPE. Not this time EA. Fix the way you deliver content. Hopefully they learned their lesson. I'm sure the game is great but there are other games to play.
Exactly, why do this with SWBF 2?? BF1 was great. Their greed needs to calm itself.
I'm glad people are so passionate about this, EA needs to realize that they need us way more than we need them.
I’ve been passionate, I hate seeing stuff like and more so people who are accepting. EA no big game publishers are seeing the newer gamers are more accepting of microtransactions cause they come from the mobile era. Hopefully these youth will wison up !
Smaller comment section here. Want to make a difference head over to Reddit gaming. Where thousands upon thousands comment. It makes EA/devs and publishers notice. There are many examples that game devs hang out there. No knock here. I like n4g. I like the news layout and have been here for years. Just not enough active users to comment and make a difference.
/RedditGaming ? How does the process go there? I feel this won’t get enough notice.
Just Google "r gaming." "R Ps4" or "r Xbox." The links will lead to Reddit largest gaming section or to your system of choice. It is thousands of very vocal people. Developers/ publishers check out those boards frequently because of the amount of gamers. So they react to the pulse of Reddit often times. It's a real voice though. Not really any shit talking or console wars either because they'll ban u quick for that. But like I said this place is awesome for the news layout and how many articles come through a day. I visit both daily. I actually quit gaf because damn, lol, that place went to shit fast..
Pay to win needs to END period. I don't think we will ever see the end for DLC or Micro transactions unfortunately that ship has long since sailed. The issue here is that the core game design for SW BF 2 is to BUY progression through loot boxes. Purposefully making the slog to progress slow and cumbersome with randomized loot drops is just plain EVIL. This would be an issue even if the game was FREE...but it is not.
I hope this doesn't just fade away. I hope their feet are held to the fire and other big publishers, developers and companies see what can happen. Also this really is out in the real world because my step son came home from his dad's yesterday and he said at Wal-Mart two guys in the next isle were talking pretty loud about EA and Battlefront 2. He said "I couldn't believe that they were talking about what you've been telling me about it!"
