Can Lot Boxes not be evil and what's an example of a good one.
Still would prefer a system where you just gain a few coins a match and then you have the option to buy whatever you want. Either spend it straight away on crappy things or save up for what you like the look of.
I mean, yeah it makes sense from a consumer standpoint to do what you suggest, but as a business, it makes more sense to make it a gamble. I'm happy with what they do, so long as it's always cosmetics and that money is used to help fund more content for free. I have 50k coins saved up (I play a lot) and I've never purchased a loot box. I understand why people would want to, and I like the system they've created. If people were able to simply buy out what they wanted from the start, they may not invest their time/money in the game.
But that's exactly what overwatch's system is at least after unlocking all the minor items any duplicate would act as a few coins and let you buy whatever you want or save.
Exactly. Impatient people can buy the loot boxes for a lucky chance/more coins. Other people, like myself, just hoard their gold like a miserly dragon.
Then it’ll be a 100G item versus a 100K G Item
Nah. Loot boxes shouldn't be in premium games. They suck compared to traditional progression systems and they're simply not fun. Stop defending them.
