Many Early Access Star Wars Battlefront II players have encountered various unlocks that could take upwards of forty hours of play time to afford. EA chimes in.
EA I wished you weren't the worst gaming company in the world right now.
I sure do wish we would have got a property Mass Effect or Dead Space this generation...EA is just the worst!
The game will still sell bucket loads...
It's Star Wars, that's pretty much a given but will it meet sales expectations?
Not sure. The complaints are gaining a lot of traction with core gamers. It might affect sales
Me too. They could do so much more as a game company if they didnt suck this much. I want the company to die if at all possible..but thats evidently too much to hope for.
What more do you expect from this company? They are nothing but shit. Most of thier franchises are crap, including a football game that hasn't changed in years.
I can definetly agree with that FIFA is such a tired franchise, it needs a complete overhaul I bought every FIFA since 2009 and im done, moved to PES. To bad people buy it every year and spend crazy amounts of money on FUT, so basically itll never change. The same goes for COD.
@cupofjoe Yet most of the time the ball is thrown or carried :)
The ball is mostly thrown or carried, and conspiciously not actually ball-shaped. Don't let Rugby soften up the definition! Lol ball noun (ROUND OBJECT) A1 [ C ] any object in the shape of a sphere, especially one used as a toy by children or in various sports such as tennis and football: a beach/golf/tennis ball Just try to concentrate on hitting the ball. The kitten curled itself into a ball (= the shape of a ball).
Good thing I have 2000 dollars laying around. I’m not doing that time, no way in hell.
If you give EA $2000 for a single game, I'm gonna cast a spell to put "the curse of poverty" on you.
No need to put the curse of poverty on him if he keeps buying into games like BF II.
But do you have 0000s for the upcoming games??
Yes but I’m not going passed 2000, that’s just crazy.
Then unfortunately the next EA game means you cannot afford to play to win.
EA makes activision seem like a paragon of virtue.
Activisions new slogan: "Hey, at least we aren't EA."
Ubisoft and Warner Bros are laughing at EA all the way to the bank.
Lol...I like it!!
10/10 slogan will support their games
Hahahahaha......... EA. I can't even see a headline involving them anymore without genuinely bursting out in laughter. lol Get f**ked EA.
complaining won't do anything, I know of people already paying to unlock stuff early, vote with your wallets.
Hopefully all the bad press they've created for themselves will will rattle investor confidence, because E.A. corporate creeps WILL take notice when their stock value takes a hit. That seems to be their ONLY real concern... because the end users certainly aren't.
I'd be pretty confident that this whole mess will affect sales. They've definitely lost a sale here anyway.
Every company does it period! Don't like it don't buy! Gave you played nba 2k18!! Lord Nba live 18 Halo 5 Gears of war They got it right the right way
No not every company does it. I don't agree with what they're doing, but they did lower the hero cost by 75%, which was the problem that started this controversy and instead of opting to sell a season pass, they're adding future content for free, people are being overly critical of the game.
They also reduced rewards by 75% making it essentially the same amount of grinding lol
GameBoy They only reduced the reward credits that you receive from completing the campaign by the 75%.
I’m kinda glad Nintendo isn’t in bed with them right now. Keep these kinds of micro transaction games/business practices off the switch. In the Nintendo vs EA battle. Nintendo is being super successful right now without them and EA needs to eat some humble pie.
Did you just fantasy league nintendo vs e.a?
No, there have been a couple articles out there and speculation regarding the business relation between them breaking down becuase Nintendo was considering letting EA use EA origin to handle Nintendo’s online. But Nintendo ultimately backed out. There’s nothing really known as confirmed fact just speculation. Heres a link on it. https://youtu.be/9CWx5WTQ6k...
Dice needs to leave EA in flocks. Call themselves Thrice or something and form their own studio under Sony with Decima Engine.
That 40 hours is based on what it was before they patched it to be 75% lower which would make that 10 hours which sounds acceptable to me...
Cool things to unlock! Is he stupid?
So blatantly orchestrated, when they said they were making tweaks based on beta feedback, this is probably what they did, ramp up the cost of unlocking everything to draw attention away from the loot crates controversy. While us more dedicated gamers can obviously link the two, the more casual ones won't. Still, I bet getting the most downvoted comment in reddit history wasn't a part of their plans.
They are still gonna sell millions unfortunately however I just hope that when their star wars licensing deal comes up in 2022 (or whenever it is) that they grant the license to someone else. Perhaps disney/lucas film would decide not to let their beloved brand be associated with these dicks in the future.
EA was always somewhat shit with their games,
