    For Star Wars Australia declared loot boxes gambling and are generally reviled across the industry now.

    But PUBG hold a real life loot box event?

    ....Yeah, bold move

    Because.......it doesn't involve even the tiniest bit of the gambling RNG nature of in-game boxes and is 100% just a typical "solve the riddles" type contest?  :|

    Before you know it, people will camp the lootboxes using snipers. As painfull as that would be ofcourse terorist-wise, i would find that ironic as fuck XD

    True, but it is also effectively flaunting the fact that PlayerUnknown betrayed and spat on the people who made his game a smash hit beyond any game developer's wildest dreams.

    Sorry, but them holding a real life Loot Box event essentially promotes Loot Boxes in general. Don't care for it.

    Real life "loot boxes" are everywhere. I've seen them at the department store. The company in the next office sells them (along with other swag) for events and who knows what. Seriously I didn't even know that was a thing until recently, even though they've been there for a couple years now.

    It all started with those damn Cracker Jack popcorn and their addictive flavor and secret toy surprise inside. See that sailor with his wee beady eyes! :rage:
