News Comments > Activision Patents Driving Microtransactions Through Matchmaking

EA is such a scummy company. They literally patented something that is universally hated by most gamers. It would be like a cigarette company patenting "lung cancer" and demanding you, the victim of the disease from their products, pay them royalties.

You know those fantastic photos on Windows 10's login and lock screens? I figured out how to turn them into desktop wallpapers.

1. Go into this folder: C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Local\Packages\ Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets.
2. Copy everything from that folder to another folder. Deleting anything under 140K is safe.
3. Run command prompt.
4. Navigate to the folder and type: ren *.* *.jpg
5. Any images that are 1920 x 1080 is good to go. You can delete the 1080 x 1920. Not sure what the purpose is for those photos.

It's definitely trolling, especially since the rest of us know the truth.

This recent Armageddon-based cult was formed in July 1879:
The Watchtower Society (More Notably Known as “Jehovah’s Witnesses”)
Charles Taze Russel founds a Bible study group, as well as a magazine he will begin to publish. It became known as “Zion’s Watch Tower Tract Society” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1881, and, on December 15th, 1884, became legally incorporated. Renamed “Jehovah’s Witnesses” in 1931, this cult has gone on to be one of the most well-known religious organizations of all time; not to mention, it is still in existence to this day. Known for their three false doomsday predictions (1914, 1925, and 1975), and a worldwide membership of 7.1 million people, Jehovah’s Witnesses is a fine example of an Armageddon-based cult, both in the past and present.

RedEye, your argumentum ad hominem has no power. You will never be able to counter any points from the Bible because you possess none. I know all your words: "sky wizard", "book of myths", "stoopid Xtian," "cult member," and so forth. Your inability, or unwillingness, to express any degree of knowledge with the subject matter in question is quite sad, really.

Can it being trolling if the poster believes it to be true? KXMode is a great guy, but when science contradicts the Bible, he tends to go off the deep end.

Science explains a lot, but it is not the be-all and end-all for everything. Hebrews 11:1 says "faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for." In other words, it is somewhat nihilistic and arrogant to put a great deal of faith into believing people who, with average lifespans of 70 years, say the sun will turn into a red giant and destroy the earth in 5 billion years. In contrast, I choose the Bible's positive message of a future where our planet remains forever powered by the indefinitely lasting power of the sun.

For a mere 200 million CAD you could have bought simulators for nearly a half dozen real planes like an A320 or Boeing 767 and gotten support, training etc

35 million means nothing. How many are 2-week active and concurrently active?

Nostalrius Begins at its peak had 850,000 registered users of which 150,000 were 2-week active with a peak concurrency of 15,000.

Well, I guess some people that have been around during the kickstarter have already died of old age, so you might want to excuse their absence from this talkback.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WHERE YELLING ABOUT. LOUD NOISES!

By the way, I wonder if Backers understand the irony of "Evocati."

Latin term for a soldier in the Roman army who had served out his time and obtained a discharge but had voluntarily enlisted again at the invitation of the consul or other commander.

It's almost as bad as calling bottled water Evian (look at the word backwards).

Please note the "permanently" in my previous comment. I wasn't talking about temporary sales, which is what you're talking about. I was referring to a permanent reduction in price. Did you not see that word? It provides a WHOLE bunch of context for my comment.

It does not provide any context at all because no one here ever claimed that they *permanently* dropped the price by 40% within 30 days. Nice attempt to cover up your fuck-up though!

Really? Allow me to quote you.

'Star Wars: Battlefront' Marked Down 40% During Origin's Christmas Sale

And that's xmas 2015. One month after the game came out.

Then two months later, Feb 2016, it went half price ($29.99). Check here or here.

June 2016 it dropped all the way to $19.99.

And a year after it first came out, i.e. xmas 2016 it was $9.99.


None of those sales changed the price permanently. So, again, I wasn't referring to temporary discounts. I was referring to a permanent reduction in price; which always occurs after a period of time. In Star Wars Battlefront's case, it occurred about a year after launch. That was the point of my comment: "Also, your point about the 2015 release dropping 40% in 30-days is factually incorrect."

Update: I may have misunderstood "dropping." I see it as a permanent action. However, the meaning may have meant temporary. If that was the case then my humblest of apologies.

Anyone remember the name of the 32nd trading card game to come out? No? That's because most didn't play it to remember it. Lawbreakers is a victim of timing in a market oversaturated of FPS MOBA derivatives. Nothing can save it from its inevitable fate. Not even CliffyB's borderline delusional drivel.

Now they need to give a discount to everyone who bought the first one.

Why?

Because even DICE have stated that the game was rushed, so many people felt and still feel burned by the whole experience. Aside from the good will it would generate it would also help their bottom line.

It'll be interesting to see if they try to hold onto a high price point this time, the 2015 version saw a price 40% price drop in 30 days I believe.

Playing devil's advocate here... that doesn't automatically entitle you to a discount. It is not within EA's nature to automatically provide discounts on new releases; especially highly anticipated ones. However, it is totally well within their nature to tell you to subscribe to their Origin service so that you can take advantage of 10% discount on new EA titles.

Also, your point about the 2015 release dropping 40% in 30-days is factually incorrect. It and the season pass stayed at full-price through BFCM and The Force Awaken's release. EA only started permanently dropping the price a year later after engagement dropped. Count on that being the trend for this release.

They directly address this, promising changes to how this will be handled when the game launches.

Random Marketing Suit: "Ladies, Gentlemen, and gender-free spatulas, it has come to our attention that beta testers are complaining about the game's loot crate looking like a P2W scheme. To counter this widespread perception, we will now refer to them as achievements and include badges to reflect that. We need your teams to tweak the difficulty so that it is harder to obtain these "achievements." We also ask that you create meta-crates, er, achievements."

TL;DR They are not going to remove a money-making cow tit. They'll simply give it another name and function.
