    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.
  • The Last Jedi Content Begins Today, More Coming Throughout the Month - Star Wars: Battlefront II - M

    I hadn't been checking the updates and was pretty surprised this morning when I was prompted to choose a side then after my 1st round I got nearly 2k credits. It's a good change IMO. I'm looking forward to the new map and single player missions.

    Controversies aside I've been enjoying this one since launch and play at least a few rounds every day and even with my mediocre FPS skills I've been able to level up my troopers abilities with no issues.
  • EA Wins Dubious Honor as Most Downvoted Reddit Post Ever for Star Wars Battlefront 2 -

    I'm in the minority here, but none of this bothers me in the least. I played the beta and had an awesome time so I pre-ordered it, it's that simple. Nothing that has happened since then has caused me to change my decision. They addressed the P2W accusations but now people are upset that there is a grind for Heroes. I didn't use Heroes very often in the first game and feel that as OP as they can be they should require a heck of a grind to obtain.

    To each their own though, if the company's business plan doesn't sit right with you then by all means avoid the game. 
  • 'Recurrent Consumer Spending' is the New Metric at Take-Two - General News

    Meh, microtransactions in general don't bother me. Only when they are clearly P2W do i think it is a detriment.

    There is a certain segment of gamers that have been asking for a long time for more ways to buy into games, be it loot boxes or cosmetics or DLC. The companies have started giving those people what they want and it has proven wildly successful.

    Don't like it? Then don't support companies that do it. Free market capitalism at its best, as it should be.

    Is it permadeath?

    Is the game meant to be played with just one character? I noticed the package tiers only have 1 transfer ticket that is consumable.  Why the restriction or limitation on tickets?

    What happens when your character dies? How does the player recover from death and loss in the game? What are the restart mechanics like?
    Your character respawns I think.  It's just that you basically have to buy every extra character slot to get them from the starter island to the mainland (I think).
    So when you die you have to buy an item with real money to get back off of the starter island?
    No, once you are on the mainland if you die you redrawn there. Only need a new "ticket" if you want to create a new character
