    I just heard them talk about this on the radio. RSA radio. Was very suprised

    Its great though. Raise awareness.
    Final Fantasy 15 was disappointing. Hype failed me. I am Squirtbird.

    So EA seems to have removed the refund button forcing you to deal with a live chat support.

    Funny enough the CFO wishes BF4 had the same recurring monetization model as battlefront due to high current playerbase

    I have a weird feeling that BF4 still has such a high playerbase because it doesnt have this model.

    No issues with short cut crates. But if it released today it would contain random shortcuts. Selling products direct to customers is not something ea likes to do anymore

    This is my biggest fear for TitanFall 3. TF2's dlc structure was so refreshing. You got exactly what you paid for.

    I don't think is sleazy, it's limited for the events, makes the people play more in the time of events to unlock those outfits, if you did not get what you wanted you just have to wait till next same type event when they are cheaper! Like the halloween event this time around, I unlocked a bunch from last year but even if purchased they were really cheap. I did not have the game previous halloween so was nice to be able to get them.

    You can buy the outfits with the coins if you have enough, sure the event costumes are a tad expensive but no skin off my back. It's not perfect but at least it's not EA tactics.

    You're still reliant on luck, though. Either you have to hope that you get the skin that you want from a lootbox or you have to hope that you get enough credits from the lootboxes to buy it.

    One person might get lucky and find what they want in their first lootbox. One person might not be lucky and doesn't even get what they want after many, many, many lootboxes.

    As I've said in a previous thread, I know I'm not in their target audience. Pretty much every time I open one of the free lootboxes, my reaction is: "If I had paid for this, I would have been pissed off"

    This has been me on several occasions.

    If I actually paid for bright engrams in Destiny 2, and all I got was 'rare' mods, a ghost shell I'd never use and a weapon skin I'd never use, I'd be pissed. But I don't buy 'em, so I they're just pasala things I get for doing stuff.
