  • Star Wars Battlefront II or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and the Love the Loot Box - Michael Bitt

    "If you’re still worried about getting stomped on launch day by people who blow absurd amounts of money on crates, I’d suggest taking some reassurance in the fact that most people don't monetize at all. Those who do monetize tend to spend a lot, sure. But the impact of those who do spend a ton will also only narrow over time as players catch up"

    It will require you to open 720 crates, depending on if you get scrapes in every crate before you have enough to make all guns. Star cards (class power ups pretty much) are in the same boat as you require scrapes to upgrade them.

    The game revolves around these loot boxes and it's painstakingly slow to earn coins to gain loot boxes, even playing well doesn't help. A last placed person earns the exact same amount of coins as someone who is in first place after a match.

    If things are implemented as they are now on launch, people will either be sick to death of the grind and lack of progression or sick to death having their ass handed to them constantly before they even catch up.

    We will have to wait an see. but overall there is no need for lootboxes in a B2P game, i'd rather have DLC than P2W

    Can you sit there and honestly say the majority who've posted negatively added some substance to this thread, moving the discussion forward?

    You are hilarious.

    Whenever someone brings up anything that actually challenges your "what you actually know" (which is precisely nothing), you immediately disregard it as hating and game bashing and you complain they are not moving the discussion "forward"?!

    While I do agree that certain people try too hard, the thing is, in case of SC, majority of "negativity" is well justified and founded while all the "positivity" is just blind faith.
    Not sure the point you're making? I haven't disregarded anyone's point, unless, imho, it was deserved falling under the points i made. I'm not calling a you hatter if you disagree with what i'm saying if that' what you mean?

    This is true but at the same time the strong supporters here also bring practically nothing to the discussion. They largely involve themselves in the drama as much as "the other side" or PR for CIG (posting screenshots and videos) most of the time without discussing the gameplay (or potential gameplay) depicted in those shots and videos.

    People ragging on the game is just part and parcel of the shitfest that is Star Citizen tbh, and a good deal of it is self-made.
    Oh I agree, but the major difference is if you are to ask them about the video or whatever they linked, they're able to provide you info on it and what their likes or dislikes are (if asked), where as those, not all, who have a negative view complain without taking the time to see what being is discussed and form a complaint around that. When it takes two people to ask for some to read the patch notes then there's something wrong. \

    Again fine with negative posts, I just think people should take the time to read what's been provided first then, bring up their arguments and what they don't like.

    MadFrenchie is a good example of someone who's read up and forming their opinion on it and not just blurting out random negativity

    Second, since I backed SC, tried it, thought it was a pile of shit, and got a refund, I could not care less what the flight characteristic's of 2.6, or 3.0 are.

    [mod edit]
    It's fine to dislike SC and it's fine post negative, but most of you guys post bring NOTHING to the discussion. 

    As i said in another post, you people complain and complain, but don't take the time to actual look at what you're complaining about, form and actual decent worth while argument and present it. It's equal to calling a football team shit, but never watching football in your life and basing everything on a random video you saw on youtube.

    There's no meaning or substance to most posts by people who aren't fans on this site, they are very rare times when some does and very welcomed.

    Can you sit there and honestly say the majority who've posted negatively added some substance to this thread, moving the discussion forward?

    The reason it seem like constantly defending is we have to put up with BS like
    rodarin's posts constantly, insulting and fling negativity based on nothing

    Oh come the fuck on, no ones said you have to be always positive, actually would like some back and forth discussions, the only reason is seems the way you think, is because you guys are constantly negative and i mean constantly, no matter what the discussion.

    ...when you have project so messed up like this, you don't find much nice thing to say nor it supports any positive attitude, assuming you have a bit of common sense and some general knowledge about business and sw development.
    The project is "so messed up" is your opinion though and it's not like any of the argument brought up are based on present info/updates, so for us to go "Okay, I see your point", there the same lines used over the course of this 6 year development, some of them not making any sort of sense anymore.

    A perfect example was rodarin who didn't even bother to read the patch notes, until asked serval times, but was already complaining and throwing negativity, saying he has sources. This tends to be the trend in most SC threads, not reading whats being said and just throwing their two cents in on how they dislike CR/CIG/SC and that it's all misleading to take your money. I'm not sure how that contributes to any sort of discussion whatsoever.

     I know the project isn't perfect and has it's "for fuck sake" moments, but based on what I know, I just don't see it being as bad as you do. I expect bugs to be in an alpha, based on what i know, but some don't i guess.
