NK was here. Everything I post is dead serious, no jokes.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
There is a cooldown in Arcade mode - you have to wait 3 hours before getting more credits.

lol - I mean its just hilarious at this point.

reddit is based around enforcing and encouraging group think so downvoting something that goes against the common opinion and getting your ebbin for the win comment in there is a good way to farm karma and raise your own standing.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
i'm not saying they deserve the label, nor am i saying we should dislike them simply because they are disliked and were voted the worst company in america (i don't even understand how you could miscontrue my argument that badly but whatever)
exercise some self control you convictionless whiney drone and drop the developer like you should have years ago when they were crowned worst company in america for yet another consecutive year.
I mean... brah...

Well Overwatch at least isn't pay to win and everything is cosmetic thankfully, but I was talking specifically about other things they've done outside of loot boxes/whatever, like that whole WoW Nostalrius fiasco and I'm pretty sure Hearthstone is pay-to-win.

Belgian Gambling Commission (regulatory part of ministry of justice) has just launched an investigation into BF2 for its loot boxes and whether it constitutes a form of gambling. Watch this go to the ECJ and set an international precedent.

If it's a gameplay designer, I imagine you want people who are experienced with the series.

Unlike say, Respawn "Hire people who hate Titanfall to make Titanfall" Industries.

I’m glad shit is moving forward on this, really. I don’t think Battlefront 2 was the tipping point of this, but more so the culmination of what loot boxes have become, and peoples patience on them. 2017 has really been, at least in the 4th quarter, the time when people have really been scrutinizing it.

We’ll see if anything really comes from it.

I mean, I'm with you on this one. They weren't crowned worst company in America because of a video game ending. They been doing shady shit for years, multiplayer passes were a huge part of that.

my original post was meant to convey that we should drop ea for the reasons people felt the need to vote against them. it made perfect sense to me at the time but i could see why the wording could fuck someone up.

The problem with dropping ea is they hold the licenses to a lot of fan favorites. If the past is any indicator they'll buckle under the pressure they receive from consumers and find some other way to fuck us over later.

Unfortunately you're not going to change things by not purchasing their games, they are going to make money one way or another.

With all the shit they're getting now I'm sure you'll see changes to their system.

You can live without the latest Star Wars game, dude. EA won't hold the licenses if everyone dropped the publisher.

How do they make money if people don't buy their games? They can go the route of THQ for all I care.

I'm not a battlefront fan either way, I'm saying that an individual not purchasing the game isn't going to affect sales. Especially when you consider the people paying a shit ton of money on those packs.

Public outcry has been extremely effective in recent years. It's definitely more effective than trying to boycott a developer that's going to make money one way or another.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

Thank you to everyone in our community for being the passionate fans that you are.

Our goal has always been to create the best possible game for all of you – devoted Star Wars fans and game players alike. We’ve also had an ongoing commitment to constantly listen, tune and evolve the experience as it grows. You’ve seen this with both the major adjustments, and polish, we have made over the past several weeks.

But as we approach the worldwide launch, it's clear that many of you feel there are still challenges in the design. We’ve heard the concerns about potentially giving players unfair advantages. And we’ve heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. This was never our intention. Sorry we didn’t get this right.

We hear you loud and clear, so we’re turning off all in-game purchases. We will now spend more time listening, adjusting, balancing and tuning. This means that the option to purchase crystals in the game is now offline, and all progression will be earned through gameplay. The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date, only after we’ve made changes to the game. We’ll share more details as we work through this.

We have created a game that is built on your input, and it will continue to evolve and grow. Star Wars Battlefront II is three times the size of the previous game, bringing to life a brand new Star Wars story, space battles, epic new multiplayer experiences across all three Star Wars eras, with more free content to come. We want you to enjoy it, so please keep your thoughts coming. And we will keep you updated on our progress.

This is really good

It shows gamers they really do have a say in how games turn out
