PUBG Testing New Crates

A post on Steam outlines a new patch for PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS that includes a bunch of tweaks as well a two new microtransaction crates. Here's word:
We will also be testing the new crate system with two new crates. We know some of you have been looking forward to this. One crate will be free to open and the other one will require a key. Every test server user will be granted 100 000 BP and 6 Early Bird keys (the new unified PUBG crate key that can open Desperado and Gamescom crates), so that they can test the new crates and the items within. Each time you spend BP to get a crate, you will get one of the 4 available crates. There will be a much higher chance of getting one of the two new ones. You can see the exact percentage values below. The BP value, the new items and the keys won’t be transferred to live accounts. They are granted purely for the purpose of testing, to make sure that everything stays stable once the test build is moved to the live servers. As always, all our crate items are purely cosmetic in nature and provide no gameplay advantage.

Please read the detailed patch notes below to learn about these and other changes and fixes included in the current test build and please keep providing your valuable feedback on our forums: https://forums.playbattlegrounds.com/forum/40-test-server/

Fuck loot crates. Fuck PUBG. Games are becoming vectors for pseudo gambling and software as a service and their makers are taking advantage of behavioral economics based psychological manipulation of their audience.

Yup. Worst part is that Valve/Steam facilitates the "trading" of this stuff, gets a cut and turns a blind eye while kids gamble on 3rd party sites sometimes losing skins that some nutters will pay hundreds for. We desperately need regulation on ALL gambling boxes.

PS - Valve is becoming almost as bad as EA/Activision these days. The flood of mobile pay-to-win PC ports onto Steam is insane. These "games" and asset flips are invading the PC marketplace drowning out all of the actually legitimate games that try to make a go on Steam. Valve is all to happy to take their money and peddle this shite to PC gamers. Gabe Newell needs to be called out for his greed. He's been given a pass by PC gamers for too long.
