  • What am i missing here

    It's like this.
    if you are playing the game and not liking it......you probably have your answer.
    And trust me when I say, "You are doing it wrong" was the fanboy mantra when this game released and a lot of people were saying "WTF?!?!?!"

  • (updated!) Authorities looking at regulating RNG as gambling

    Now dev has to find new ways to have the whales spend lots of money. Or may be just go back to sell virtual sword + 10.


    They'll still build gambling in, but it will be more indirect. Like potions or some one time use thing that increases the RNG factor for success on some attempt to upgrade something.

    I am looking forward to Classic WoW. But not some hybrid lobby game with "throw backs" to the old WoW. Either do classic or don't bother.........Well, that's just me.

    no it is not, the study is to see if loot boxes fall under the online gambling ban prescribed by current law.

    it is not a review of the gambling laws themselves.


    belgium is not changing law to get rid of loot boxes.


    and  nice slippery slope fallacy at the end there. . .
    That's what I meant, is getting reviewed you don't need to change the law but the regulations need to "thick more boxes". Also the end was a joke, not sure if this agressive vibe you just transmitted is intentional or not --'



    the point you are failing to grasp or that I am failing to explain properly is that belgium commissioned a study to see if loot boxes are gambling or not and that ( in my informed opinion) by current law that study will find that the aforementioned boxes are not gambling as defined by existing belgian law.


    the study is not to find the effects of loot boxes on consumers or if it leads to real gambling, and therefore the law needs to be changes to include it. like they did with CS:GO  item wagering.









    P.S. I am sorry you are so sensitive that facts and reasoned discourse seem aggressive simply because they challenge your worldview. . . 



    With loot boxes, you don't own your purchase. So I'm not so sure your argument is cut and dry.
