If y'all want to support this lootbox microtransaction scam then please do it all-out and preorder the gold version for $99.99 on Steam directly. I mean why hold back? Just do it! You know you want to.
This is pretty much why I'm not buying it. The regular game will no doubt be designed as such a grindfest as to "encourage" you to buy the microtransaction pay-to-win loot boxes (like Dead Space 3 was or maybe even worse). If you want to do their online ranked mode, you'll need to buy them to have any chance, just like people spend thousands on mobile games to "win" at any cost.
Here's a simple fact about the game...
The game difficulty wasn't adjusted to maximize the use of the boxes. The only ones that truly help you play the game are obtainable rather easily via in-game currency.
The online leaderboards are nothing but e-peen contests and honestly, have literally no bearing on how the game is actually played.
Who knows, one day someone might actually investigate things before flying off the handle.
