    I think the best part of all this is where people on Reddit are acting like they are shocked, as if EA has just started this kind of thing recently. The masses really are stupid. The elephant in the room is also being ignored, and it's the $80 price tag on a game that still depends on purchasing more loot boxes or grinding out a work week. It's this same level of disbelief that leads me to believe that all these people cancelling pre-orders will just re-purchase in the near future. You get what you deserve. This little uprising is about to get put down once EA releases some new statement of them making changes for the release version, then followed by the release of the game and the reviewers (as already seen above) driving the new narrative that actually amounts to nothing. But hey, "EA listened to us!" They will cry and proceed to break down in purchase of the game.

    Meanwhile, Blizzard announces StarCraft 2 officially going Free-to-Play by taking shots at EA for this fiasco:








    And below that, a DICE Design Director that worked on Battlefront replies:

    I got news for you, buddy:
    Wartune
    Travian
    Grepolis
    War2glory

    Pay2win, all of them. The last three is the best in that the servers RESET every so often, knocking EVERYONE back down to starting gear so you have to spend all over again.

    Tangential, but still relevant.


    This is the future. Unless something radical happens, like the ESRB/PEGI stepping in to stop rampant lootbox gambling in non-f2p shit (which they already refused to do), or a government going in with a power tool where a scalpel should be used.

    Even the ivory tower of corruption is giving it a low score.

    I've never heard of any of those. I was thinking of CSGO, H1Z1, and the recent cawadooties.

    Word of advice: Do NOT even THINK about trying them out. Just DON'T. The first one, especially. Unless you really like to be milked of your money by people who sneer at you for your stupidity.
    MMO Flash games <- separating dumbfucks from their money since at least 2007.

    So this blew up in EA's face, and rightly so.

    Fortunately, they fixed some of the problems and are workong on others.

    The game itself? Fucking amazing. Been playing it nonstop almost. And still real fun.

    You could say it's some corporation agents working on destroying EA from the inside, noone can be that incompetent.
    By the way, guy from the vidoe has the most annoying voice and tone possible.

    It won't be the first time a corporation tried something like that. Jack up prices and then have a sale is another trick they use. It all ends up the same to the company, but it has been known to fool consumers.

    Yeah i know mate,it is like jacking up prices and putting sights that you have 50% discount. It is a common thing.

    I must admit, though, after the backlash of their first idiocy that even made the papers here, for them to try and pull something like this so soon smacks of a trolling prank of some sort.
    This borders on SJW levels of stupid and arrogance.

    Ah right of course, I mixed up my jews. Weinstein went to sex camp, Kevin Spacey tried the "im gay" comment to deflect rape allegations. What is it with jews and sexual assault lately?
