     Disney didn't pay 4 billion dollars to own the most lucrative IP in the world so that a bunch of internet plebs can tell them what they need to do with it. And Disney certainly isn't going to completely alienate the only developer likely willing to pay them what these rights are actually worth because of "Rabble Rabble Rabble Rabble." The only thing unreasonable here is even entertaining that you have any say in multi million dollar transactions of massive billion dollar media conglomerates. You don't in this case and you never will. There's also a non zero probability that you will suddenly disappear from your computer chair and suddenly appear on Mars, but the difference is you're not here pretending to know something about quantum mechanics so thankfully we can avoid that equally ridiculous conversation.  

    But thanks for the laugh anyways fellas.
    Show me where the bad man touched you and made you so angry...

    Good luck with the petition and all that.

    It won't do diddly squat.


    You are 100% correct.  People are still buying the game in droves, and I'd love to know how many credit cards have been swiped so folks can "win."  One can only assume that regardless of the backlash, EA and Disney are laughing all the way to the bank.
    Kinda hard to swipe any credit cards when they removed the ability to by crates with RL money at launch. Not that there was anything in them that was P2W in the first place. If you're not very good at fps games there isnt a single card in those crates thats going to help you win.
    Yeah nice logic dude. How about two people of equal ability one swiping and one not?

    Yup, no P2W happening there whatsoever.
    Even if there were 2 completely equal ability players they would have to play the exact same number of matches with the exact same class and build their decks the exact same way to stay equal too eachother. That just isnt reality.  Having played the game everyday since launch and only buying crates with in game credits I truely dont see anything in those crates thats P2W, theres nothing in them that you cant earn in game.  

    Now I understand that people hate EA because... reasons and that gamble boxes are a very controversial thing in gaming these days but people calling the game P2W are being very disingenuous.  I'll continue to play and enjoy the game, I'm sorry that some people can't do the same.
    Well you must be blind to the most legitimate complaint players had (that the vast majority of reviewers also pointed out): during that early access time frame before they froze buying lootboxes, buying them got you a greater choice of cards and better heroes MUCH FASTER than earning them in game. Would things eventually even out a few weeks or months down the line? Sure, but that was never the point.

    In a competitive PVP game, it doesn't get much more P2W than that unless buying them were the only way to get them.

    Signed, glad to see this going.  This is so much more than microtransactions and loot box crap.  This is much needed.  Battlefront 1 didn't have the controversy but still people wanted to see EA lose the licence because the game just sucked and had no substance.  If Disney hopes to drive the Star Wars IP forward and revitalize it for the next generation, they need QUALITY video games.

    If I want a world in which people can purchase success and power with cash, I'll play Real Life. Keep Virtual Worlds Virtual!

    I have no idea what's going on.  But "there's nothing in them that you can't earn in game" is a pretty bad argument to pay to win.  Almost all the korean or chinese games let you earn everything in games but the grind is so horrible people rather spend money.  

    What I know is there are many lootbox games which don't have backlash, most because it only offer cosmetic.  So I presume there's something wrong with battle front which upset the players.

    We just disagree on the P2W aspect, and that's ok. Hopefully you get a SW game you'll enjoy as well at some point.

    complaining about lootboxes = being hurt and crying
    calling people names = being a bully

    So if one makes a joke about 'please show me where the bad man hurt you' its about the person crying in this story. the people crying are the lootbox-Gaters...not the people pointing out they are crying

    BULLING IS NOT CRYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    being a BULLY does not equal crying about the man who hurt you.

    was he a bully? yes.
    but from a logic standpoint you used the wrong insult because this thread is about complaining, and dont give me that cop out about 'oh its just a poll' no this thread is COMPLETELY about crying because the man hurt you

    Bro, you're triggered because you know you're powerless to do anything about EA and you have a major problem with it, but you can't argue with my reasoning because it's indisputable. It has nothing to do with me using naughty words that you don't like.

    Dawwww pumpkin whatsamatta, you sound like you're about to have an aneurysm.

    For someone that actually had the gall to pull out to that vapid touching analogy earlier you sure are having yourself quite a cry about how I touched you on this thread. And you went through the trouble of highlighting the words that triggered you and everything, just lul.

    Hang in there champ, do you need a spell? Are you alright to carry on without having any more public meltdowns?

    Also, SEANMCAD is right I was being a bully a bit, I shouldn't have been to that guy he didn't deserve it. But you're making it all worth it, don't worry. Pure cringey gold.

    Electronic Arts and Disney have signed an exclusive, multi-year licensing agreement for EA to publish Star Wars games developed by Visceral Games, DICE and BioWare.

    The agreement covers titles aimed at core gamers on "all interactive platforms"; Disney retains the rights to make casual and social games in the Star Wars universe on mobile devices, tablets and the web.


    EA holds onto Star Wars games license for 10 years, says SWTOR is 'profitable' Electronic Arts' deal in 2013 with Disney over the Star Wars video game license will extend for the next decade, meaning that any dreams of a non-EA Star Wars MMO or game are going to have to wait until 2023 or beyond.

    This petition will have very little impact, if any,  on any actual changes as the contract is binding and nothing has been presented to show any violations of the contract.  This was a statement made by a legal analyst on Bloomberg when they talked about the stock drop last week and any potential backlash from the whole loot box fiasco.

    wow some of you are going way off topic with personal attacks lol.

    Anyways in my opinion this petition will do no real good in advancing this agenda of removing EA from the licensing rights for Star Wars, though I'm glad people felt inclined to let their voices be heard. I'm sure Disney will hear it, but will they really listen?

    Disney's dealing with their own kerfluffel, being accused of running a 21 minute Frozen short feature in front of Coco as a Christmas marketing scam.

    They are going to pull it from theatres in response to audience backlash.

    The only way they would need to listen is if the petition got into a million plus (or significantly more ).

    They already know, going into any venture, that x amount of customers are not going to like their product.

    There is something called "NPS" or "Net Promoter Score".

    Essentially customers fall into three categories: Promoters, Neutral and Detractors.

    If a company uses this management tool then it's a bit more in depth as far as what one has to do in order to get the most out of it. However the gist is that ...

    Essentially your promoters are going to spread  positive word of mouth, Neutrals are on the fence and Detractors are going to spread bad word of mouth.

    Depending on the ratio of each group, some think detractors are the lost cause people and it would take a huge amount of resources to turn them into Promoters, let alone Neutral. So, companies work to keep the Promoters happy and shift the Neutrals.

    Of course if a huge majority falls under detractors then that's another thing.

    That's why this poll might really not be anything other than a tempest in a teapot. EA might look at 150k-200k people and see them as a small amount of people not worth courting and will instead court the neutrals.

    Just vote with your wallet and time. EA is quite hated for a long time, but does that hurt their business?

    Just take ME Andromeda .. a lot of criticism and outcry. But it did good business.

    https://www.pcgamesn.com/mass-effect-andromeda/mass-effect-andromeda-sales-numbers

    and i quote " In addition, Mass Effect: Andromeda was a significant contributor. Full game PC and console downloads generated net sales of $111 million, 32% higher than last year. This was driven by Mass Effect: Andromeda sales captured in the quarter.”"

    So if I am EA, do i really need to care much about any petition? Are you suggesting BF2 is not going to sell well?
