EA Believes It Is Above The Law

KeenGamer: ''In recent news, we have seen EA top brass defy the requests of Belgian government to remove lootboxes in their games. Ever since the furor surrounding the Battlefront II lootbox controversy, several governments around the world have run their respective investigations with their respective gambling authorities. Eventually, one after the other would bafflingly acquiesce to the apathetic idea that perhaps this wasn’t a fight worth bothering with, stating ultimately that lootbox culture was not tantamount to gambling. The sole survivor or this battle, still fighting the good fight is Belgium.''

EA shows no respect for the consumer and the law

I truly don't understand how they can pretend it's not gambling.

When FIFA 18 released a Youtuber spent over £450 trying to get a walkout. He got ONE after spending all that money. That's gambling, no two ways about it.

He means one after one they realized that it was a lost cause. They conformed to the status quo of law everywhere else saying it’s not gambling. Belgium has stood fast though and he is bafflingly triggered that they stand alone. The one country that has banned lootboxes is the supreme law that EA must obey and their defiance should be punished by a plebeian uprising like the French Revolution.

Seriously, who hasn't seen Pirates of the Caribbean?
