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.
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)
