If you ever feel the need to use any of the paid lootboxes you're probably so bad at this game you quit in the first hour. The game drops loads of them for any of the online stuff, and you're rewarded so much money during normal gameplay that the UI doesn't even allow you to spend it all.

I get that there's a stink and a scare over the mere mention of the term "loot box", but this isn't the game where they're a problem.

Gotta agree. I've felt zero pressure to buy any loot boxes. I mean, what would be the point? It isn't going to enable any gameplay I can't already do. The Captains and weapons being random is less effective than just going out and finding a Captain I like and dropping a SUFFER ME NOW on his face, or killing the appropriate Captain type to get the weapon I want.

The core gameplay just doesn't make the lootboxes an attractive option.

Good shit. Looking forward to that harder difficulty. Once you get the hang of the combat in Shadow of War, it's still a bit too easy, even though the difficulty is definitely upped from the first game. The Nemesis system is a lot more fun when you get your ass beat on occasion, and it feels kind of shit to intentionally feed some guy.
