    Still not buying this game, and here is why...

    On one hand, when a company makes a mistake and then fix it, you support them as a token of appreciation for listening to feedback.

    On the other hand, that was not the case here. EA didn't make a mistake, they implemented a well-planed royal middle finger for their fans and got caught red handed.

    Nah, you're personalizing this way too much.

    Had they realized this was a "middle finger" they would never have done it. No company would. I've worked for many companies and never once, ever, had any one of them said "hey, let's screw over our customers ... and said ...


    It's just a monetization scheme that didn't work.

    I can't see how they design and entire game progression based on paid loot boxes without realizing the big controversy and problem they will cause. I think they were very aware of it but because they make a lot of money with practices like this in FIFA and other games they went for it... and this time backfired.

    EDIT: maybe they dont see it as "lets screw up our customers", but it looks like they are throwing shit to the wall to see what sticks. And Andrew Wilson is obsessed with aggressive microtransactions tactics.

    Seeing what sticks while forcing change by slowly pushing the envelop and increasing the tolerance for bad practice. Yesterday all loot boxes were bad, now they're acceptable compared to loot boxes being tied to progression. Tomorrow, loot boxes tied to progression will be acceptable compared to... well, they really nailed it because I can't think of anything worse than loot boxes being tied to progression.

    They won't stop until everyone has a credit card reader hooked up to a PC.
  • One of the largest Wormhole battles ever - 600bil+ combined total losses

    600 billion ISK...

    Someone put that number into perspective, because I don't know how substantial that is.

    Excellent review! I liked the "deep questions" that you didn't pretend to have answers on. I actually think a lot of people are going to be asking themselves something similar when other games release... especially ones that brag about how old school they are. (Pantheon, I'm looking at you)

    Considering I don't play modern MMOs, at all, what so ever, I doubt playing Pantheon will suddenly confuse me about what I prefer in an MMORPG.
  • Kingdom Come Deliverance, too good to be true ?

    Looks an Elder Scrolls rip off.
    There is nothing "elder scrolls" rip off about this game.

    I agree, but it does remind me a lot of the old Daggerfall.

    Anyway, I'm about 60 hours in right now, and it's one of the best RPGs I have ever played. Even some of the bugs are more entertaining than entire AAA releases. It has its problems, that's for damn sure, but they got so much right.
