Finally. An honest review: "Much has been written about the buying loot crates with real money. A situation that EA have, for the time being, switched off."
They didn't want to switch them themselves, their hand was forced by Disney because stock prices were plummeting. One of the worst launches in the history of gaming.
Keyword here is - "for the time being". I'm willing to bet(no pun intended) that they'll put it back up once the current storm has passed and people's attention move on to other things. This is EA. I expect nothing less.
Hopefully, they will learn this lesson and leave it off.
If it was THAT easy for them to learn their lesson, they would not be the most hated publisher in the gaming industry. If its not season passes, its loot-boxes. If its not loot-boxes, it'll be something else equally slimy.
