Nice try Ubishit, I'm not going to install your DRM bloatware Uplay on my machine. I win.

Well with that attitude you might as well throw away your phone, kill your Internet, only buy stuff with cash, and cover yourself in black when you go out. Oh, and don't forget the tinfoil hat and baby monitor.

Drifting too much into the mob mentality of "I hate EA because it is the popular thing," is narrow thinking. Why? There are three companies involved and all have something to fear.

As the developer, DICE is working on an IP neither they nor their parent company own. Put yourselves in DICE's shoe. The last they want is for EA to close their studio because EA does that. You know those devs are working extra hard to make the game better without the aggressive MTX.

As the publisher, EA is working extra hard to make Disney happy so that they do not yank the franchise away from them.

As the IP's owner, Disney is working hard to ensure that the word gambling being associated with Star Wars does not impact ticket sales.

In other words, take a step back and look at the bigger, business picture, and then fit that view point within the scope of being a gamer.

So they're releasing a game based on a shitty movie that was released five years ago? Guaranteed success! Can't see how this won't sell 20 million copies.

I liked WWZ. Thought the ending was good and the clues they left along the way was very smart.

Four player? World war Zzzz.

World War Z is a name synonymous with heart-pounding fear and action

Hahahahaha. Oh wait, you weren't joking. There was a part in that movie that showed fear? Oh, I guess the part at the airport in the night was somewhat tense. And maybe when the zombies suddenly became amazing acrobats and created a human ladder 200 feet high to scale the wall in... Jerusalem?

Other than that it was a god-awful snoozefest. I watched it on a trans-atlantic flight, and even then I still thought it was 2 hours of my life I'm never getting back.

Well, I thought the movie was scary and action-packed. The Jerusalem sequence was completely nail-biting.

I think the game looks good. Like The Division with zombies.

Redmask wrote on Dec 8, 2017, 07:44:
How about no fucking progression system? Why do I need one at all? We played games for 20 fucking years without these things, they do not add anything to the gameplay or enjoyment of the product. It's just a virtual hamster wheel and gamers are so fucking owned by the industry that they're convinced they're a good thing.

With indifference to your "colorful metaphors," the reason why is simple. Progression creates goals, and an RPG-styled progression system of unlocking skills is great fun! I wrote, "Reduce the XP/points needed to unlock core skills." So by making SWBF2's multiplayer a hybrid of MOBA (like Overwatch and TF2) and RPG (WOW and GW2 skill-tree styled progression), this gives players a real sense of accomplishment without making the process a daunting chore. This plan also provides players with a way to skill up numerous alts without spending an absurd amount of time on each. When they have a vested interest in their characters and the game, this ultimately leads to residual purchases. And that's what EA needs most for SWBF2 to be successful.

Edit: "core skills core" lol

It's not hard.

1. Restrict the loot crate system to vanity and cosmetic stuff ONLY. In other words, pink Darth Vader costume, emo Luke Skywalker skin, and so forth. Nothing pay-2-win. (No radical changes to MTX system)
2. Make all pay-2-win stuff part of core progression. (No radical changes to core system)
3. Reduce the XP/points needed to unlock core skills core. The progression should be set to reasonable levels. (No radical changes to core system)
4. Set the price of new DLC maps to $12.99. This is higher than the cheap $9.99 pricing point but lower than the $15.99 "subscription" pricing point. It's a perception thing. (Financial decision for future content)
5. Continue to offer vanity and cosmetic stuff alongside paid DLCs. (Decision for future content)

What EA doesn't make from P2W MTX, they will from a steady stream of residuals (e.g. new purchases, DLC purchases, vanity mtx), and more important they won't suffer the ire of Disney or gamers.

All currencies are fiat. However, BitCoin is like the loot box of fiat currencies.

No.

XBT is more like a commodity. There is a fixed supply, and they're impossible to duplicate.

A pair of definitions.

Def 1. Fiat money is a currency that a government has declared to be legal tender, but not backed by a physical commodity (like gold, corn, and oil). The value of fiat money springs from the relationship between supply and demand rather than the value of the material that the money is made of.

Def 2. A commodity is a raw material or primary agricultural product that can be bought and sold, such as copper or coffee. It is a useful or valuable thing, such as water or time.

Going forward...

Point 1. BitCoin has no intrinsic commodity value.

Point 2. BitCoin is similar to government-issued legal tender, but unlike paper money, BitCoin isn't a tangible thing, so it has no intrinsic physical value.

In the most real sense, BitCoin is Monopoly money without the feeling of Monopoly money.

It makes perfect sense, maybe you should read it more slowly? Or go watch some virtue signalers in action to see how it all goes down.

Read it slowly numerous times. Still makes no sense. Not dogging your creative use of language, it's just not clicking for me. Care to define?
