Look at these REMOVED posts. Special snowflake DangerDog can't handle his opinion being criticised and has to get it removed. Just like his hero Donald Trump. Grow a pair, Cletus.

The post was not reported by DangerDog.

Please everyone try to keep the personal attacks in check, especially in topics that get this heated.

This topic looks more heated than Star Citizen, religion, or politics.

People could also express an opinion without breaking Blue's extremely lenient rules. Just saying...

It's like Disney is in this odd state of turmoil where they don't want to have the bad guys be really evil. It all has to play out where when you see Darth Vader in a Disneyland parade you have little kids cheer.

Kind of like what Joseph Goebbels did with Hitler's image in Germany.

We can only hope.

From the minute they announced that EA had an exclusive Star Wars license, everyone knew it was going to be a shit-show.

Well, not everyone. Disney wasn't in the know. Pretty sure during the RFP stage EA impressed Disney with their dog and pony show numbers. If Disney did their due diligence they would have found EA is one of the most loathsome companies, and THE most loathsome in the video game industry.

BF4 was probably the best unlock grinding system to date by DICE. You could unlock multiple things simultaneously, the goals were mostly realistic, and they still had pay unlocks for people who wanted shortcuts, but nothing was really overpowered.

BF1 got worse, can only effectively unlock one thing at a time, there are sequential steps preventing you from unlocking in natural gameplay(sometimes) and there is a lot of randomized cosmetic crap to sift through.

SWBF unlocks were annoying, but honestly I find the gameplay boring enough that I didn't even bother grinding that much. Other SWBF players can comment more on that. The idea of the Hut contracts and other unlock paths weren't too terrible though.

SWBF2 seems to be doubling down on the mistakes of BF1 and SWBF, most notably with obscene exp requirements, and then adding the exp caps per round and per day. Not player friendly, and not something one would hope for from a team that theoretically has half a dozen unlock-grinding games under their belt already.

SWBF3. EA will come to your house and hold you hostage for up to 16 hours (the actual number is a RNG). You can obtain your freedom by paying $29.95.

I hope EA and Dice read this. !@#$ off. Not only will I never buy SWBF2.. but I also deleted Battlefield 1. You can shove it all up your ass. I will never buy another dice product again. Ever.

I'm sure they've read this and it will come up in the next corporate memo.

Actually they've read it and decided to disable Timmeh!

"The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date"

Translation: We will wait until you all have bought it because of this TEMPORARY change and will just turn it on again in a few weeks. Buy, people - BUY!!! Did we listen? Yes, but not to you but to our shareholders.

Actually, their plan is simple. They will keep microtransactions disabled until people get so sick of the grind that by the time EA enables it people will be happy to throw their cards at EA. It's the "kid holds breathe until he gets his ice cream" strategy.

They can try. Who else is going to make them the money that EA does? Activision, maybe, but that's a big maybe. Ubi? Please.

CD Projekt Red. Any company that can employ over a 1,000 people to work on a single game (Witcher 3) and can publish it themselves, can handle a franchise like Star Wars.

EA's business model is all about the 18 month cycle. There's literally a sucker born every minute, so who cares how many people learn how crappy you are, all that matters is naive people giving them money because they ignore the press and experienced friends.

All correct except word of mouth can cause way more damage than EA's ability to reel in "new suckers." Bad PR can spread like wildfire to the point where even "new suckers" decide not to buy EA products. You need to look no further than this story to see the effects of severely negative PR.

Fundamentally EA's business model is flawed. It's predicated on one goal: maximize shareholder value. As long as that exists, they will always place profit above quality. The only way EA can take back their business is to become a private company.

Don't fall for it... Temporarily suspending in-game purchases doesn't mean jack shit, wait and see if they actually change what those purchases are.

They will wait for the heat to die down and all the people who have cancelled their preorders to buy and then when they give them a taste of the game they will turn that shit back on, slowly but surely. Don't fall for it.

This is what eroded trust looks like and is the bottom rungs of any business. When people get to this level of angry, EA has lost far more than they would have gained with microtransactions. They should've focused on a really fun game and let the game sell itself. I'm pretty sure if EA doesn't handle their stuff Disney is going to move their Star Wars IP elsewhere.

Decided to pass on SWBF2. I'm not interested in multiplayer. Endless reviews all show one thing: the single-player campaign is very short. I'll wait until it's on sale or there's a cheap CD key. Hoping by the time the game is on sale I'll have an upgraded machine.

now officially in early access, allowing brave homesteaders the chance to be pioneers in this new MMORPG. The preorder page now offers three packages, Townie for $29.99, Pioneer for $49.99, and Collector at $79.99, but only the two more expensive ones include early access along with their extra perks.

This is all kinds of wrong. Sigh
