BATTLEFRONT II CAMPAIGN REWARD REDUCED BY 75%
KEK EA DOESNT GIVE A FUCK
That has to be one of the most jewish tactics I've ever heard a company do in gaming.
buying EA games in 2017
delete this right now
Pretty clever honestly
Sup Forums user
I mean...I guess that makes sense but you'd think that if they were going to be that strict about it, they'd just GIVE her to you.
Which means there's no mechanism for obtaining Heroes, no function coded into the game for it, outside of spending credits or the lootbox
wha-what happens next?
this way people cant spend 20k on on pay2win lootboxes. only 5k. smart move.
This. Now that reddit hates EA they are /ourguys/ based EA.
What happened to
beat the game on easy to unlock this minor character
beat the game on normal to unlock this major character
beat the game on hard to unlock this main character
beat the game on nightmare to unlock this easter egg character
What exactly is the Battlefront controversy, I'm hearing about everything except what it is
name 6 games that do this.
Look it up on reddit.
Casuals complained that they didn't want characters gated by difficulty. It hurt their feelings to be reminded of their lack of ability.
So I just won't buy the game.
Dunno why it's hard to be discontent with a product and not follow through. You've got children whining left and right how "evil" EA and lootboxes are, but they're the same hypocrites that'll stream $500 worth of virtual products being opened. If it's so bad then don't playit, fuck.
THPS did shit like this
You have to grind for EA funbucks to buy Star Wars heroes, which takes a really long time or you could buy lootboxes for funbucks
This is after DICE said they would support the game with free character and map dlc
you can only complete 5 arcade challenges every 14 hours
pretty funny actually. based EA BTFOing retards who buy this trash and expect EA to bend to their demands
Most people who play these games would rather have the content locked behind RNG crates then behind something that might take the slightest bit of skill.
This is all pretty obviously just a test to see how shitty they can make their marketing practices and still get away with it thanks to retarded impulse-buy consumers.
Tony Hawk, Unreal Tournament, Payday 2, various Mario Karts. SoulCalibur 2, Metroid Prime, just to name a few, all had unlockable characters/weapons/whatever locked behind completing certain objectives in the game.
shit the people win, lower the price by 75%
decrease rewards by 75%
what did they mean by this
thanks for the reddit gold!
sounds like a mobile game
This whole situation has been absolutely hilarious. Seeing autists sperg over their star wars and EA not giving a single fuck. I look forward to it continuing and the autism army to attempt another "muh gamergate" and pretend they're making a difference.
How many times can you keep shooting yourself in the foot.
We like EA now that Reddit hates them
as long as you're having fun snarking at everyone and not really doing anything yourself either
Implying I would buy anything from EA
it is reddits fault!
I fucking stoped buying EA games like 10 years ago lad, I love watching these retards get assfucked.
NO FUCKING WAY
She gets fucked by the dog, doesn't she?
Do these suits think this will make them more money? I feel bad for the actual developers.
This seems to be literally and unironically true.
anyone have the new veddit comment about this? I wanna see it
When people are willing to pay for the chance to unlock something, why give it away for free?
Who or what?
Better luck next time goyim heheh
tfw haven't bought an EA game since Road Rash
When will you westcucks learn
Oh you know what happens next and she does too.
Sup Forums, give it to me straight. All I want to do is play as some clones and mow down droids. Will this game satiate that need, or is it even lacking in that?
They reduce cost by 75% but reward by 75% also? So nothing changed? I don't get what the hubub is all about
I think that's the stronk independent female protagonist in the story mode.
The campaign reward was only to unlock one character.
Nothing to see here.
Hand over your shekels, goy.
EA broadcast that they reduced the cost, but left out they reduced the rewards. Then they let people make clickbait articles about EA doing good.
The real question is did EA think people wouldn't find out.
It's so that brainlets on Reddit will think that they've won. The only winning move in an EA game is to not buy the game in the first place.
Yes, because the game itself is functional. It's even kinda
fun from what I played.
But these absolutely asinine microtransactions piss on any good aspects of the game.
Holy shit that's more than 20x the number of the previous record holder.
don't fuck with gamers
I think the last game that I have ever play from EA was this one. And I prate it since the guys who made it went under and now make shitty sports games.
Oh that makes sense. No, they probably didn't think anyone would notice; companies that treat their customers as shittily as EA do tend to think that everyone they're lying to are complete idiots.
Pressure the devs to protest. They're just as guilty for sitting idly by
It is fun because everyone is on the same power level. When the game actually releases and the people who buy loot crates start raping your ass with level 1 cards, come back and tell me if it is still fun.
This is great to see, but lets be real here. Despite all the shit EA is taking right now, the game will still sell a shit ton. It's a sad reality, but it's the truth.
probably get blacklisted from working elsewhere as well
I wanted to play this game. I really did.
But not anymore. Unless EA disposes this manipulative and time wasting practice, I won't even bother.
I mean, I'd like to imagine our memes at least making a tiny dent in sales
I could get 5 million down votes and it wouldn't mean shit. Reddit will probably delete the post and any trace anyways after EA pressures them.
reddit doesn't stand for greedy anti-consumer bullshit
"Haha w-what retards!"-/v/
game will still sell 10 million copies in 2 months and then 20 million by summer. However people will complain about the grind and mobile game powerups after they already bought it so EA automatically wins
Shut up, mEAg.
Isn't one of the main reason for the micro transactions is because they are going to have free dlc? I may be wrong but who gives a shit anymore
Nobody gives a shit about you nigger.
wtf i love EA now
It's because not enough gamers are redditors. We need to encourage more to browse that website in order to stay informed and vote with their wallets.
Literal stamina system on a full priced game
The fucking mobile garbage i play on the shitter is more lenient and has more free stuff than this fucking game. What the fuck.
9/10. Would gladly click on this again next time I see it.
calling characters "heroes"
I will never associate that word (and other similar words like "legends", "champions", and others) with anything but assfaggots. I'm sure assfaggots did more to harm gaming than anything else.
Can this be the new /v/eme for the month?
What is this?
Wont this increase the time needed to unlock characters
They have been called heroes way before assfaggots were famous.
linking to plebbit
posting pepe the frog
Buying card packs in the sports games almost makes sense. But putting microtransactions in a star wars game is retarded and its really convoluted and ham-fisted. Just fucking calm down on the microtransactions for five seconds. You don't have to bend the lootbox model to fit in every single gameyou make. How about just make a game for once
Can wait to grind OTHER 40 HURS to unlock dlc characters
Reduce price of heroes
Reduce the reward from campaign as well to match Janina Gavankar's price
FUCKING EA REEEEEEEEEEE
Meanwhile credit rates from everything else weren't reduced by 75%
Yeah pretty sure LoL started that ebin term for the player character. Somehow it never sounds endearing when said.
Unlocks, expansion packs, cheat codes, all that shit is dead m8. Pay to unlock, because we gotta suck dry the uninterested playerbase who will buy the game, play it for a week and then never look at it again.
Dumbfuck normies will still buy this game because Star Wars
Star Wars nerds will buy it because they'll buy literally anything with the Star Wars name on it
Grandparents will buy it for the grandkids this Christmas because Star Wars
EA will still get their money no matter what
Not a goddamn thing will change
They'll continue to shit out turds and watch the money roll in as they never have to put effort into making a good game ever again
Why spend money making a good game when you can make a subpar one padded with micrtransactions? They make a bigger profit doing the latter.
Dude Hatsworth is the bomb
grinding for characters in the first place
I just want to play the campaign. I read the prequel novel, Inferno Squad, and I liked it quite a bit.
Reddit isn't filtered so it is clearly welcomed here friend.
Or, and this might blow your mind, I WON'T play it, AND will complain about it so they know they fucked up.
Instead of shutting up and taking it like a cuck being locked in the shed.
Also casual reminder all DLC will be free.
those nu-male facial aestetics
i thought Sup Forums was the gamergazi boogeymen making up shit, this is a joke right ? they cant all have that fluoride stare and fishlens aestetics... i..iiis.... is he a commie aswell ?
le vote with your wallet xD
You not buying the game because of a bad corporate decision is literally irrelevant when hundreds of other people are stupid enough to buy it in your place.
You as an individual do not matter and you need to get it through your skull.
they did say that you need to grind for the "dlc" characters
why are they even called that if its free, its literally just normal patch/update that gives more content
its not like ASSFAGGOTS advertises new champions as DLC, because its not
Are you actually retarded, user? The Hero characters are all named characters from the Star Wars movies. The original Battlefront games called them Heroes as well.
I thought normal fags loved reddit, surely it being one of the most downvoted comments garnered some exposure
what the actual fuck is going on
What's the appeal of Star Wars?
Lightsabers look corny as fuck and let's not even get into the fact that Storm Troopers look like they wear plastic
using the Internet for things other than Google, Youtube, Facebook, Viruses, Streaming Movies, Porn and Tinder
EA is fucking cancer but this is actually pretty hilarious.
It's 20+ x more downvoted than the previous most downvoted of all time comment.
buy $60 game
play it for a bit
SORRY SIR YOU CAN'T PLAY YOUR GAME ANYMORE COME BACK IN 15 HOURS
this is why AAA garbage needs to go die in a fire
why not just make it so you unlock her automatically free? Why the fuck do you need to unlock heroes at all in a battlefront game? Anyone who buys EA shit deserves to be fucked in the ass
DON'T BUY EA GAMES
is that a hairy mole on his neck?
This is hilarious but EA honestly are fucking up big time I feel. I think this is actually going to impact sales and shit on a larger scale than everyone is anticipating
People get invested in the stories and the characters.
Fuck this dude makes me want to shave right now.
why is this so goddamn funny to me
I'm gonna do that just cause you told me not to. Ebin trolled kid.
why would anyone buy this garbage in the first place
rip his hairline tho
When it came out it was during a better time in my life and I like to remember that time.
Also that art is awful, at least post something on-model of Saya if you're going to post anime tiddies.
lol this is great
Ok this is starting to get pretty funny
Promises to fix the game in the sequel by adding more content. Even has the CEO on stage announcing they listened to feedback
More content is added but behind loot boxes
Holy shit EA is the absolute madman
EA is holding an AMA on wednesday to try salvage the situation. I can't wait for the trainwreck.
EPIC!!!! you really showed them
falling for the anti shill
heh... just as I planned
Edups didn't look too bad that one time he shaved his head. He'll be fine.
It doesn't seem like reddit's falling for it either.
So you can use the credits to buy a better character and not their shitty self-insert mary sue
DARTH VADER TAKES 10 HOURS TO UNLOCK
beat the campaign and you can knock it down to seemingly 5
buying "battlefront 2" after steam multiplayer on battlefront 2 was fixed
it's all just normies and plebs
Oh boy another shit opinion.
Arcade Mode having a limit on credit gain is justified. Even in the Beta alone there was a scenario to kill 75 enemies as Maul and it took like 2 minutes. Its not fucking telling you you cant play anymore you fucking morons.
I keep thinking things can't get any worse and I'm consistently proven wrong.
why is it so funny when thousands of people get exceptionally angry at something?
Welcome to the rabit hole
fastest shoop of my life
Alright, I'm shaving.
dude just play over 100 hours to unlock Darth Vader in a Star Wars game lmao
He's actually pretty attractive. I bet you're all uglier than him (and obviously less secure).
YOU WERE WARNED WHEN EA DID THIS TO DUNGEON KEEPER
YOU WERE WARNED, AND LOOKED AWAY.
they want you to buy crates to unlock faster
Fuck off newfag
She defects to the rebellion in an absolutely shocking twist
Yeah I actually feel like this is going to have genuine impact. People are FUCKING MAD and it's amazing
serves EA right holy shit. i'm excited for the coming days
EA IS SO FRICKEN BASED MY DUDES!!!
I'M PRE-PURCHASING THE GAME NOW! (Non Refundable Edition)
I LOVE WHEN US GAMERS WIN!!!
You're dreaming, they already have made their money and people will forget about it by Thanksgiving.
this company now wholly owns Respawn
RIP Titanfall 3, I guess.
EA loves gamers!!!
pls shit on them so they just make the heroes free goddamit and I'll unironically buy the game instantly. Don't really care about the lootboxes because people who play a shitlaod will have more than me just like in battlefield anyway
Wanting to unlock a traitor
EA needs to fucken die
the thing that baffles me is that it takes pretty much exactly the same amount of money to make a good game as it does a bad one, sometimes less, so why do they insist on making bad ones when they could please everyone?
ORBITAL DROPBOXES SOON, LOYAL CUSTOMER!
Unless Battlefront II somehow under-performs greatly sales wise nothing will change all this is to save face
Non Refundable Edition
everybody hates EA
/v/ is no longer the contrarian
/v/ is no longer muh special snowflake super cool board
/v/ likes EA now
you guys make me want to puke
implying the game itself is bad and not the systems surrounding it
Go fuck yourself nobody would be mad if a shit game was trying to nickle and dime you
stupid millennial faggot: detected.
must suck growing up in an age where you're so used to games developers FUCKING YOU IN THE ASS?! sucks to be in your generation, millennifaggot.
TFW literally never bought an EA game in my life
Lootboxes are direct upgrades. They aren't sidegrades like battlefield guns. A level 4 card is more impactful than a level 1 card and this directly reflected in the gameplay. They have shit like damage reduction, longer get locked on, increase damage and other bullshit. You must be stupid to think this doesn't affect you. This affects you more than locked heroes does.
the thing that baffles me is that it takes pretty much exactly the same amount of money to make a good game as it does a bad one, sometimes less
you're obviously not in any kind of business.
out sourcing the coding to india, china is 10x cheaper than hiring amerifats.
you might end up with a shittier game and end up making 3x less money but it doesnt matter because labor costs were 1/10th of what they were before so you actually have a larger margin than before.
whining about freedom
kys commie cucks
they cherrypick the comments that they can give a shitty PR non-answer to
"This was a very constructive AMA! Thanks for the feedback everyone, peace out!"
There are some you missed out on. The LOTR games were top tier. Pirate them.
EA NORMALFAGS AND CONSOLEKEKS BTFO
Voting with your wallet is a integral part of the free market. Sorry we cant all be corporatist neocons or progressives like you faggot.
Are orders being cancelled in such large numbers that customer support already knows?
This has to be fake, no way the gaymurrs are this woke
I just bought Alice Madness returns, please forgive me ;_;
paying 80 dollars for a watered down, always online gacha simulator (loot boxes/stamina not included)
So how is the OG Battlefront community? Could do without the mobile gambling, and seems like a good time for a revival.
Reduces amount of credits you earn in campaign at the same time
lol those assholes
Still expecting people to grind like crazy for things that were open access multiplayer content in the original game.
Why not just unlock her without credits?
I sperged out to my Dad today about this, with him claiming I spend too much time on the internet listening to people and just buy it for myself. Whenever there is a movie I know I won't like due to trailers and reviews from people I trust, he just claims I listen to them too much when their taste almost lines up with mine. The thing that triggered it is when he said for me to stop listening to reviews and just go see it. I explicitly told him I don't want to be screwed over by companies and my initial hype (I got fooled by the E3 trailer) was shattered because of this shit. He just went silent.
On one hand, I had to say it, I can't stand it when people expect me to buy stuff I don't like. On the other hand, I went too over the top with him. What do I do?
Who the fuck still buys EA games? Even Ubishit manages to publish something half decent every once in a while but EA hasn't released a good game in half a decade, maybe longer.
She's there to trick people into blowing their credits from campaign on her so they have to then grind more to get the big characters.
My 8 year old niece plays it often. She complains that it takes too long to find matches, but she's 8 and they seem kinda quick when I'm watching her. So take that as you will.
Either way, it's still EA.
I've pirated their games since C&C 4 came out in 2010. I'm still mad
Based EA ,Contemporary star wars fans deserve to get fucked
Don't be a disappointment to your father. Do that.
1) Kill yourself
2) Apologize to your dad if you think you were legitimately rude to him
3) Explain that by buying the product you'd be inadvertently supporting it, but if you could try it for free you'd see for yourself if it was bad or not
A majority of games up until the 7th console generation. Shouldn't you be in bed? It's a school night.
Walker Assault matches are easy to find. Drop Zone can sometimes take a few. It's kind of inconsistent. Death Star and Bespin DLC are actually really consistent with matchmaking.
Don't play anything else.
Sounds like your dad's second guessing his Christmas gift to you now.
cut rewards and heroes cost by the same percentage
Doesn't this mean that literally nothing has changed? Is this one of those Jewish tricks I keep hearing about?
Imagine being such a slut that you go ahead and fuck dogs.
WAS THIS NOT BROUGHT UP?
EA doesn't give a fuck about customers
Golden Poo Awards out the ass
Disney owns Star Wars now
tagging Disney with children gambling and this shit press
It would be great.
I will not be complacent or satisfied until lootboxes are removed entirely!
You should show her the original Battlefront 1 and 2, user.
you have to go back
I fucked up didn't I? Well shit. I'm going to go over there and play OG battlefront II with him then.
lmfao damn good point
this is genuinely pretty fun to watch unfold
perks, attachments, extra tools
if it's not like csgo where you have balance at any level it's the same kusoge. I always complained about that battlefield shit, fucking neets hitting max level in a week
Holy niggers, I can't believe Reddit cam up with a good idea for once.
needs to be posted after the next op
this would work
get to work, i thought this was supposed to be our job
no nfs games before they went to shit
I pity you
She won't play them. If a game doesn't look amazing, she won't touch them. Also, she can't finish any game either. She gets upset at losing or dying at one point and just finds another game to play. It doesn't help that I gave her a hacked 360, Wii and 3DS so she's got a shit ton of games on top of her game loving dad.
To be fair. Playable characters all have cool down abilities. They're all heroes
Well, she is still a kid. Assuming she doesn't think she's too old for vidya by the time, she might be more receptive to older games when she's older.
Imagine being such a loser that a girl would rather fuck a dog than you.
revive popular and loved online series with a shitty, half-baked turd that has a fraction of the content than even the first real game
somehow make it even worse in the sequel
They actively go out of their way to pull this shit now. Better off just spending $5/pirating the originals.
I just hope she's more receptive to losing and not giving up things easily when she's older.
Normalfag/Lower power level friendly Youtubers have changed the game.
Sidegrades are fine.
Direct upgrades are not. Especially direct upgrades locked behind a huge timesink and can be bought.
Dad is complacent soygoy
What is it with white dads and this shit?
Set a good example, god damn, my dad sperged the fuck out when MW2 got rid of dedicated servers and mod tools on PC (as did I) and hasn't bought a CoD game since.
Having the gumption to not support a company when they do something you disagree with shouldn't be as rare as it is.
What the hell are you talking about?
post yfw EA STILL makes bank from this """"""""""game""""""""""
indeed. this place is such a faggothole
Time to get those dummy accounts boys.
Fuck EA, I hope they get fucked hard by this.
Alright lads, gimme the last EA game you ever bought and when you bought it
Bad Company 2 - 2010
EA makes a new game
The real fun comes from watching people meltdown for the microtransaction system
Well played EA, well played.
Call the cops, I don't give a fuck
Reddit hivemind desu.
see posts about people actually refunding it
plants the seed of doubt that is "if everyone else is doing it then I should be too"
chain reaction as more and more people are refunding and making a point to say they refunded
As long as other people are doing it, more will continue to join in. The shitshow that is Reddit's upvote and gold system is at full power.
create false improvements to the system without explaining fully
remove the old news by creating new news
Reddit hivemind can now no longer accept the old news because there's new news
people blindly accept the fake improvements because all the game "journalists" are just pumping out the latest news without looking into it
At least that's what they're trying to do, but it blew up too much and there's popular posts pointing all this out so it's not going to work as well now.
kill yourself blackpill shill
Mirrors Edge Catalyst. I'm so sorry, I loved the first game too much
Your dad is a retard shill. Sucks to be you.
Plants v Zombies 2. I only bought it to resell to gamestop though.
16dollars at Bestbuy
traded to Gamestop for 44dollars of credit there
call the cops, i'm mentally handicapped
LMFAO, I gotta admit this kinda Jew tatics makes me laugh
post YFW EA has genuinely fucked up pretty badly
of course it will make bank. don't forget that Sup Forums, reddit, etc are relatively insignificant in the overall market. the average normalfag(where most of the profits come from) does not care to research and be autistically up-to-date with the newest events in gaming
I just got cancer
it's hard to blame people living today for feeling like they can't change anything, so they might as well just give up
power structures are pretty stacked against your favor, and seeing how hard it is to convince people to do anything, it's a lot easier to just accept it and be part of the crowd than to fight it
Why not just increase rewards by 400% and leave the campaign reward and everything else alone?
People figured out how to manipulate shit without making people mad ages ago.
still buying video games in [CURRENT YEAR]
Can't wait for the next update of Brutal Doom desu
get Disney to go after EA
And this is why white people are going to go extinct soon.
At least Muslims have some fucking convictions.
If you buy EA games, you deserve this.
people bought EA anything in the first place
You fucks claim you'll boycott it and then turn around to buy their shit anyways.
They might be a bunch of insufferable normalfags, but at least they don't pretend to have blatantly autistic opinions just to get attention through (you)s. This threads a stunning example of that
Where's the rest?
Im buying it because it makes Sup Forums angry that their temper tantrums dont change jack shit
reddit is part of the normalfags you disgusting newfaggots
all of you
I don't think there's anyone on Sup Forums who still buys EA games, and if there is they don't belong on Sup Forums and need to fuck off.
Also this, contrarians on Sup Forums are so obsessed with getting (You)s that their brains have been fried.
We will never get a badass new road rash
b-b-b-but loot crates and micro transactions are optional!!
The road to Hell is a slippery slope.
disney is arguably even more of a cancerous company than EA, it's no surprise they're partners
Reddit has a lot of influence. They also have a stronger connection to normalfag consumers than we do
spend 80 dollars on battlefront 2 collectors edition
bright eyes and bushy tailed i expect to jump in and play vader and luke
get in a game
theyre fucking locked
think "well it might not cost too much"
needs 80 hours of grinding for ONE character
something that puts league of legends to shame
EA gets banished to the shadow realm with over 500k downvotes on leddit
decide to drop prices of shit by 75%
"oh thank god they fixed i-"
but also reduced rewards by 75%
even mouthbreathing retards can see that something is up
EAdrones refunding the game in droves
not only do i love watching rEAtards get fucked constantly, but EA getting BTFO is also funny
he average consumer of games like battlefront does not give a shit about online communities like reddit and Sup Forums. you're deluded if you think Sup Forums and reddit combined make up a significant portion of EA's market
Serious question, can you teamkill in this game? If so Ill buy vader & just teamkill nonstop to piss of the whiny entitled fags. I have $100 in credit in my psn that I got for my bday a month ago & Im aching to cause asshurt since F13 stopped teamkilling
I don't think there's anyone on Sup Forums who still buys EA games, and if there is they don't belong on Sup Forums and need to fuck off.
That sounds pretty reddit bro kekeke
Maybe go back to plebbit faggot
^^^ Go there and complain about companies making money u fucken socialist lul
What a bunch of gaylords
This is Farmville-tier mobile game bullshit. Fuck EA.
Alright user, calm down, you're going overboard now.
Battlefield Hardline (XB1) in 2015
That game was so shit.
They already tried to pull this same trick with
Release """Battlefront""" with staggering content deficiency
Make sequel, "Look at all the stuff we added!"
You didn't add new content, you just didn't bother to put it in the first time. EA acts like people don't know the difference between expanding or improving upon something, and completing what should have been there from the start. Fuck them, [F] for Pandemic.
It doesn't matter, if you can push a narrative enough it WILL reach normies.
Just look at all the dumbfuck memes that move from Sup Forums to reddit to the rest of the internet to dumbfuck normies.
You can play it, you just stop earning credits until the timer goes down to 0.
Not that I'm defending it, this shit doesn't belong in a $60 game.
No friggin way
So, you're insulting people that bought the game and you also bought the game?
FUCK OFF REDDIT FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING RETARDED NIGGER WORSHIPING SJW CUNTS
YOU BUY THESE GAMES KNOWING IT'S FROM EA, THE COMPANY EVERYONE VOTED THE WORST PIECE OF SHIT FOR LIKE TWO YEARS IN A ROW
YET YOU STILL BUY IT
THEN YOU CRY ABOUT IT ON FUCKING Sup Forums
FUCK OFF YOU PIECE OF SHIT
GO BACK TO YOUR RETARDED HUGBOX
WE'VE TOLD YOU A MILLION TIMES YOU MONGOLOID
DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM EA
BUT YOU GIVE YOUR MONEY AWAY WILLINGLY BECAUSE "OH ALL MY FRIENDS ARE TOO"
u mad bro ?
I don't think I've bought one ever
I'll admit this game looks fun, and it's a shame I have to miss it thanks to EA's fuckery. Destiny 2 was also a disappointment (got it for free though so meh). What's the next big thing in online FPS games? What do we have to look forward to? Just playing pubg for now.
No one on Sup Forums says "gamer" unironically you fag. And this game will be hugely profitable regardless.
something that puts league of legends to shame
not anymore, bub. League reworked their IP/Loot system so now you get "more", but you dont get it til you level up. And it's also RNG. And punishes you for playing more than Carl the Casual.
It's like Riot asked EA what is a good way to get idiots to pay money
DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM EA
No one's buying it moron, it's about waking up normies to hurt EA where it matters.
I'm all for ANYTHING that hurts EA's bottom line, fuck EA and fuck anyone that defends them.
If I had to choose between reddit and EA, I'd choose the former any day of the week.
Fuck EA, they deserve to suffer almost as much as the dumbfucks that still buy their games.
Is that fucking real
Did they ACTUALLY fucking do that for real
Because that's some next level bullfuckery
I'm almost impressed by the audacity of trying shit like this
No one on Sup Forums says "gamer" unironically you fag.
Fuck you nigger
buying EA games
buying Star Wars shit
Nerds deserve being treated like shit
Fucking socialists want everything handed to them on a silver platter
implying I bought anything since they fucked me on hardline
you have to go back
Fuck off back to /leftypol/ falseflagger, EA are kikes and no one on /pol/ supports their kikery.
releases game called Bad Company
from that day one it proceeds to become a bad company
When someone doesn't buy the game, a magical portal does not open up and a stupid person comes through to purchase it in there stead.
Oh no no no...
rewards cut by 75%
LEL EA truly has no idea what to do.
They only reduced a one time reward for completing the story. You still get the same amount of credits from everything else.
Why not just give players the extra 15k credits holy fuck are they really going to be THAT stingy while getting crucified?
pay money for a good or service
denied good or service
WELL ARENT YOU AN ENTITLED LITTLE SHIT?
I know this is probably cause I don't plan to buy/play this game regardless of what ends up happening cause I found the beta boring but...
HOLY SHIT I fucking love how EA doesn't seem to give a single fuck. They're scum and deserve to go bankrupt but the way they have handled this situation in the biggest "go fuck yourself" way is just hilarious. It's almost hard to believe.
All this battlefront ii anger about campaigns and rewards seems so extraneous when the purchasing decision is so simple. No VR=no buy.
Have a daily limit on Arcade Mode credit gain
WHAT THE FUCK THEY LOCK YOU OUT OF PLAYING THE GAME FOR 14 HOURS AHAHAHAHAHAHA
Reduce a one-time story completion award
THEY REDUCED ALL REWARDS IN THE GAME DESPITE NOBODY SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT STUFF THAT ISNT THE CAMPAIGN AHAHAHAHAHAHA
Does Sup Forums ever shitpost accurately?
remember when we unlocked stuff without loot crates?
People need to learn how to read. They only cut the reward for completing the story by 75%.
What kind of retardation is this?
Remember when we didn't unlock stuff at all in multiplayer games, and all the tools were available from the start and only player skill mattered?
Because this shit spreads and will infect the entire industry you dunce. It happened with DLC. It'll happen again.
I don’t know about you guys, but I like loot boxes and paid transactions. There’s nothing wrong with it and it makes you feel like you actually earned something when you spend a day at work and come home to buy a new hero on Battlefront for $20
Viewtiful Joe, theres one
Existing stupid people pay for thousands upon thousands of non buyers. You'd need about 80% of the whales to not buy for EA to go into the red on this game. Noone else matters.
haha yeah, ebin xD
have a daily limit on arcade mode credit game
this is a valid point tho, ea are being hyperjews
making good games takes talent and a much greater investment in craftsmanship.
that comment section is full of delicious, vitriolic gold.
How about I fucking get the thing I bought and paid for instead of having bits and pieces of it re-sold to me for more than ten times the cost? Is that a socialist thing too, fuckhead? Actually getting what you bought for the price it was sold at?
Bought Titanfall 2 last year. Don't really regret it
I know rite XDDDD. See you after school, my dude! XD
I dont get whats going on
No its not. The Arcade scenarios that are just you as a hero shredding infantry only take 1-2min a run. Youre delusional if you think thats fine.
Don't fuck with gaymers
Titanfall 2 if that counts
EA putting them microtransactions HARD.
Not even once.
buying a shooter made by EA on a console
Fucking neck yourself holy shit
you're delusional if you think that's fine
nigger what the hell is wrong with easy ways to grind credits?
Please return to the commie den you came from.
Be careful what you wish for, they tend to shoot retards
game locks you out of playing that mode for profit 14 out of 24 hours in a day.
Dragon Age Origins - 2009
EA lowered the price of all the heroes by 75%. This caused EA to also lower the reward for completing the campaign by 75% because people would be able to buy the best heroes too easily. People think that because that one reward was lowered by 75% that every reward in the game was lowered by 75% when that isn't the case.
yfw ea's humble bundle was the best there ever was and they pull all kinds of whacky shit like this
yes, you gotta pay to unlock the protagonist
god i wish that were me
I don't fucking remember
You need to fuck back to your commie hell.
Getting (you's) in the form of upvotes is literally how plebbit works, are you retarded?
All this drama over look boxes and micro transactions
I just want to fly around in the X wing and shoot stuff, why is that so hard?
This caused EA to also lower the reward for completing the campaign by 75% because people would be able to buy more loot boxes with the game's currency instead of their actual money
Fixed it for you, friendo.
literal disinfo agent
everything he talks about is perceived as wacky conspracy nut story
will never name the nose
has the power to make any legit news sound like products of mental illness
lately steals half of his stuff from Sup Forums
probably Bill Hicks in disguise
can't help but finding his meme persona hilarious
blame EA for turning the concept for a fun star wars game into a money printing machine
i'm disappointed too, even though i couldn't have expected anything else
Battlefield 1, 2016
Don't regret it, it's fun as fuck in spite of its flaws.
this entire fucking thread reeks of leddit
All of you did this to yourselves. Nobody forced you to play Mass Effect,
or Need for Speed, or Rainbow Six, or Battlefield.
You chose to.
This is your choice.
This is your sole responsibility.
...Are you proud of your creation?
It's fun to play a broken game
Sure, if you are retarded it might be.
I bought a game from a company with known skummy practices
They do something scummy
Woah what the fuck?! This is an outage
This whole thing has my sides in orbit
The true reddit.
Titanfall 2 and Andromeda (when the price was right). Those are the only semi-recent purchases.
I like how half of these posters are underaged users with some weird faux-pride in an anonymouse internet message board community as if it's a part of who they are. Both reddit and Sup Forums are just fucking pixels on a screen. Losers. No wonder you're anonymous.
Only started to stink when you turned up, faggot
Smash, Mario Party/Kart, Tony Hawk games, SSX, Binding of Issac + Rebirth, Tekken 1-5, fucking WWE: Smackdown vs RAW, Soul Calibur, NBA Street, etc.
Did you literally miss out on a generation of games?
Reminder that this entire 'lootbox controversy' is actually because the protagonist of the singleplayer campaign isn't a white male.
Thanks for getting the hero costs lowered by 75% guys
Thatll make it easier for me to get them Day 1 when I buy $100 worth of loot boxes
And this has to do with EA fucking us over because...?
If we are so terrible, why come here, go to the superior webportal.
I just bought Alice Madness returns
Buying game that had so much more potential but like everything got fucked hard by EA
Buying a game when the only company getting your money from it will be EA
Buying a game when there's 100% possibility there won't be another game from McGee, at least not published by EA
You should have just pirated it instead, what's more when you pirate you get a pre-order edition that features the first game for free, something that McGee wanted to be in every copy of the game but EA fucked it up again and forced him to make it a pre-order bonus.
T-THEY WOULDN'T TRY AND FUCK ME OVER WITH THAT MASSIVE BUDGET GAME THEY'RE DOING FOR THAT MASSIVE BUDGET FRANCHISE, SURELY!!
THEY WON'T TRY AND GRAB EVERY PENNY THEY CAN GET FROM A STAR WARS GAME BECAUSE THERE'S A FILM COMING OUT SOON
Even their sales guys know they fucked up
barely above 500 people viewing
i have zero reading comprehension
This. Another fake controversy.
Enjoying all the male tears btw. Why are shitlords so fragile?
itt 9gag shill campaign
has the power to make any legit news sound like products of mental illness
This is what confuses me the most about the guy. He's got that "turning the fricking frogs gay" thing that eventually turned out to be real, but was a pesticide someone was testing, then there was that video where he was having a breakdown screaming that America was about to nuke China, a few hours later the Shayrat missile strike happened. He gets real information, but immediately spins it out and makes it seem like a loonies rambling.
Do you honestly think Sup Forums gives two shits if you buy a video game they don't like? And you actually get some sort of accomplishment out of this?
damn I thought you'd just get Iden for free after the campaign with the credits as a bonus. they are so greedy.
No one here buys EA shit, that' why we dont care, you turbo nigger.
This reminds me of some levels in halo where two factions fight it out while I watch and wait. I hate reddit and tumblr, but EA needs to be dissolved.
Just the campaign. Essentially 20K becomes 5K. If it was for challenges and credits earned per match, then we'd be REALLY fucked.
That's been capped too. Only 3 credit earning opportunities every 14 hours.
Shitting on plebbit for shitting on EA is defending EA.
I hate reddit, but I hate EA more, so if faggots want to shit on them, I'm all for it.
If you complain about it, you're clearly not all for it, and as such are defending EA.
Ergo, go fuck yourself.
I don't buy EA shit either, I still want to see them get fucked for being cancerous shit, and if you get in the way of that you are defending them.
Fuck off, EA deserves to die for being shit, and I'll gladly support anything that results in them losing sales and money.
Woah nice image bro can I save it I've never seen this epic picture before haha back to /pol/ am I right /v/irgins??
Nobody even plays games here, let alone fucking buys them.
Genuinely don't understand why this upsets people. They wanted you to unlock that character by beating the game, so you unlock that character by beating the game. What's the fucking problem?
IT'S OK WHEN PUBG DOES IT
IT'S OK WHEN OVERWATCH DOES IT
IT'S OK WHEN WOW DOES IT
Realistically no regulation would come even if everyone pushed for it. As long as it's not gambling by the legal definition no regs will come, wanted or not. Realistically the only thing that could happen is the shitstorm being so loud that even whale dumbasses stay away and ea losses tons of money. The shareholders will say "that lootbox shit ain't working anymore, DO SOMETHING ELSE AND MAKE ME MY MONEY". But what will happen is some whales stay away but ea still makes some money, so they say "that's over the line of what dumbasses will put up with, let's reel back the bullshit just slightly so we make billions instead of hundered millions" and the shitfest continues.
Fuck, Brandon. You had one job.
you cant just dictate who is a Sup Forums user based on your preconceptions.
there's an entire sub reddit supporting donald trump.
its simply ridiculous AND sad to think everyone on reddit is the same just like not everyone on Sup Forums is the same.
Buying a shit game to be contrarian
but it's not tho
Fuck off shill, go back to defending EA somewhere else, you've shown your hand way too soon.
I don't give a fuck if 9fag joins in on the fun, EA is cancer, so dogpiling them is totally favorable.
Not pay2win though.
Fuck off, EA deserves
Well you will have to hunt down all normalfags and rape them of all their money for that to happen.
Go home reddit-kun, we hate you almost as much as your dad does.
stupid millennial faggot: detected.
Yeah, you. He's just a dumb faggot but you are a dumb millennial faggot using words you don't understand
What year were you born, retard?
he's not an EA drone because he uhh.. he has awareness!
posting anime shit
I ain't defending shit you nigger. Go back to where you came from faggot.
The human population today is bigger than the number of dead people that there ever was
posting anime on Sup Forums?!
Who would have thunk!
don't say mean things to reddit, they are fighting against the evil ea
Companies like EA will always exist, just don't buy their shit and if you really want to play it, pirate it.
Also nice defense posting floor lolis, but you are a redditor.
I'd wager you're also gen y or a young shitter gen z.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, last good thing to come out of that shithole company.
first Riot causes a controversary on their board with their new BE lootbox system
Is this the awakening and crash we asked for?
falling for the bait
Reduce cost of heroes by 75%
Also cut rewards by 75%
So heroes are effectively just as expensive as they were before
That's some fucking pretty impressive Jewing.
Actually 80% of every human that ever lived is currently dead.
EA scamming a bunch of redditors
How is this a bad thing? They are literally /ourjews/
Maybe it really is time to go back lad.
Burnout 3 , in a different era.
unfortunately no, normalfags still have no idea this is going on and will still buy BF2 for their kids for christmas
if you look on twitter most of the tweets in the hashtag for the game are still ads and shit, not complaints
How fucking new are you?
Now you're obviously a shill, except more pathetic since you do it for free.
Companies like EA will always exist
No, they won't, if enough people dogpile and shit on them they'll either change or fuck off, and getting as many normalfucks, redditards, and faggots to shit on EA is always the best course of action.
Fuck EA and fuck anyone who defends anything about them.
Dead Space 2 (2011), I believe.
How to spot the redditor
post anything that might imply that reddit sucks
the people that respond bitching and moaning are the redditors, they know they don't belog
like a jew in the grass
there's thousands of tweets to scour through, so you're likeing not seeing them all
While you're probably right I could say the same of you.
kill yourself faggot doublenigger
Dead Space 1 and 2 -
People only get upvotes by appeasing the hivemind. That's the exact of opposite of being a contrarian retard
I'll admit I was born in '86 and am gen y but I don't go around spouting millennial like kids used to use gay
why do people bother doing this shit
i really dont get it
You are dumb never reply to me ever again
Also game devs never always fucked us in the ass
I don't go around spouting, millenial-like, kids used to use, gay
Nothing is more hilarious than giant corporations doing damage control and losing money, doubly so if it leads to corporate shills killing themselves.
not understanding why call people ledditors
Wow. How new are you faggot?
The real reason you responded to me is because I insulted your hugbox friend simulator, don't buy ea games ever and fuck off to reddit.
Whatever reddit hates is good.
I'm gonna buy Battlefront 2 to spite them.
Why are there so many people feverishly defending their practices in replies
Nah, I'll continue to support EA getting shit on.
It's not enough for me to not buy their shit, NO ONE should buy their shit.
I'll stop when they fuck off, until then, let it all burn.
Great, good for you, but the grand crusade against a company that anyone with a neuron knows is the worst is on reddit, not here, reddit-kun.
supporting EA just to spite redditors who will never know this transaction occurred
No, it's everywhere, and we all know there are still retards on Sup Forums who buy EA games.
why don't you retarded faggots stop buying these shitty games?
Imagine being such an underage edgelord
They "only" lowered the rewards for the campaign? The campaign is literally half the fucking game. Am I missing something here?
EA completely owns Respawn Games now
NO, NO, WHY, FUCK
one post you quoted is naming the kike
he is somehow reddit
In what planet do you live on, faggot?
I kinda get it, you unlock the protag essentially. But this way you have the choice to use those credits towards something else if you want.
It makes sense, and isn't a scummy thing to do. But they should have known better with all the blowback they got from prices originally and just left it as 20k.
But I did pirate a shit ton of them. Like, the golden days of The Sims, C&C, NFS, LOTR games, DA, ME, Dead Space..
...I really wanna go back
w-woah! Its okay to buy battlefront now, I mean they slashed the cost for everything, right reddit?
Need For Speed Underground 2 - 2005, GameCube
Though my brother bought some FIFA games (he's a huge footballfag) up until the 2012 version for Xbox 360. I'm only mentioning this because I played FIFA a few times with him.
EA has and always will be the "fuck you, give me money" of developers
Dead space 2/Alice madness returns/shadows of damned, all 2011 same day.

I'm still mad as hell. Had the same lootbox problem as we're seeing here and then Visceral got fucking taken out back with a shotgun.
gg 2.0 will be over all this political bullshit: niggers everywhere, even where they don't belong, forced diversity, STRONK FEMALE HEROES, no swastikas ect, people are getting tired
Minecraft your fist video game?
You guys should make more threads about this. Im sure it'll help. Sure.
who the F U C K cares about original the character, the original thing to blow up was some poor guy who just wanted to play as DARTH FUCKING VADER.

IT MUST BE THE NIGGERS SJW TRANNIES COMMUNIST SCUM, WHO COULD BE AGAINST THE FREE MARKET AND OUR CORPORATE OVERLORDS
desu most modern games can be taken away even if you have a physical copy
for example Xbone doesn't actually use the disc, rather it just uses it as a key to get the digital download
Some guy wrote it in September I guess, he must've known this was about to boil over
I like how surprisingly well-done some of the Sup Forums musicals are.
I too watch the world burn, but I sometimes throw oil on the fire just to spice things up.
This sperging out over EA's jewery isn't even remotely relatable to gg though.
I’m torn. I hate EA as much as the next, but the game is honest to goodness fun and I really want it.
I love watching HAPPENINGS like this, especially for companies that deserve it, but why does it have to be over such a fun game with so much potential? :(
how hasn't ol' dan been caught up in this current hollywood shitstorm?
Didn't get the first one cause it looked lame, now I have even less reason to get this one, fucks sake EA just go away already.
They only cut the reward FROM THE CAMPAIGN by 75% but the ones in multiplayer are the same. Whats the fucking fuzz about now
the NMS one was fan-fucking-tastic
remember when you could beat a boss and unlock a new character and play that character and unlock another. You EA fucks I still remember.
Weren't there like at least 7 NMS songs?
implying devs can't take away access even if you have phyical
not just game sharing with a friend on console
not just joining PC master race in the first place
implying Titanfall isn’t a walking corpse already. All hype. I’m surprised it’s still relevant.
well some user made one like the day after release and did all the voices himself
PLEASE BELIEEEEEVE MEEEEEE
omg I can still hear it
So how long does it usually take for EA games to go dirt cheap on key sites?
They usually discount the base game fairly quickly, but only to trick you into buying expansions. Expect a $20-30 sale on
origin within a year.
pick a side ya wishy washy asshole
Lmao no you uneducated burger
Reddit BTFO. Good on EA for pulling fucking those subhumans over.
You're no better
such a fun game with so much potential
we must be thinking of two different games...
It's not enough, I want to enjoy Titanfall 3 and these fuckos own the license. They gotta get put through the wringer on this one so they don't try it on TF3.
MY FUCKING SIDES
EA nevers dissapoint
one step forward.....2 steps back
EA just can't help being greedy.
we cut the cost of heroes
but we also cut how much money you fags can earn
they still talk about gamergate so theyll just create a new figurehead to pin shit on
This was all calculated. If you think they didn't anticipate backlash and subsequent """economy buffs"""...
Also technically they only cut a single one-time reward, not the overall earn rate, which is blown out of proportion.
That's what they want. Games nowadays have to be linked with severs to play on. Even if I bought a physical copy of For Honor when the severs shut down eventually I won't be able to play it anymore.
I've still got PS1 games I can play today but in the future the games you own will no longer work.
"Games as a service" after all
Implying access is regulated by the game disc
Implying that friends can come over any time
Implying I'm not talking about PC's too
fucking shoot yourselves
Post loli, gets called a redditor.

Hi EA shill
Only a year ago people were sucking EA off for BF1.
He's got that "turning the fricking frogs gay" thing that eventually turned out to be real
What do you mean "eventually turned out to be real?" Why do you people forget the decades of news regarding pollutants having a negative effect on the hormonal and sexual behavior of aquatic sea life?
they are lowkey saying that a year after relase they will do payed dlc
They don't have to back down because either way the game will sell a billion lootboxes and the typical shooter junkie whales will fund it
I don't know why people haven't caught on to that.
last EA game I bought was FIFA 14, aka 4 years ago
feels good lads. I believe in you
If you buy this game you are unironically, LITERALLY the cancer killing video games.
tfw hate video games so much that i find ea's shenanigans hilarious now
When's the last time you played a video game, Sup Forums? I just watch anime now.
Nigger this aged surprisingly well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaAH-cv2ybo
Titanfall 2 drops
free dlc and updates
cosmetics are affordable and don't affect gameplay
no lootbox cancer
game flops because of release date
Respawn and the IP is as good as dead
Star Wars BF2
slow paced, objective based shooter
lootbox cancer everywhere
pay2win out the ass
game is going to be an absolute success because STAR WAAAARS
I want off this ride
why do my friends think lootboxes are fair and good cause they are cheap and easy to get and get mad then i say EA is shady and bad.
Who gives a fuck anymore? If you're buying this shit you are bringing it on yourself. AAA publishers are literally only in the business of fucking gamers in the ass for every cent they have
HAHAHAHAHAHA HOLY SHIT!!!
don't fuck with gamers
Damn right I can click le downvote so fast
because the campaign reward is the biggest one, and it would have allowed you to unlock any 1 hero you wanted, which would have actually been a decent thing for EA to do
that i bought?
mass effect 3
i did get gifted mirrors edge 2 but i didnt like it and sold it (and i didnt pay for it personally) so im not sure if that counts
Tell me again how Gamergate doesn't harass developers, Sup Forums.
visibly upvoted it
go back you fucking faggot
Alright Sup Forums, how do we fight back against the Redditors? EA doesn't deserve this.
Battlefront 2 (2005) ?
BASED ea giving the finger to buyfags
Its either that or bloodborne
because he pays the kids he molests personally, instead of paying their parents like most hollywood pedos
don't fuck with gamers
did..did a redditor actually have a good idea?
sauce some picture i found on Sup Forums that i thought was cute and saved
i wonder who this could be.
DO IT DO IT DO IT
Why should EA care about any of this outrage at all? They know perfectly well that people will piss and moan for a day or so than go out and just buy the game anyways.
Yeah gonna need a sauce for science
Why don't they just make this a free-to-play game?
because they want base price shekles too
reduce prices by 75%
2 steps forward
reduce reward by 75%
2 steps back
So EA basically did fucking nothing.
Maybe they're being sarcastic, like, "Riiiiight all the "other" refunds."
This outrage means nothing. Nobody outraged is the target audience for it.
They only reduced the prize you get from finishing the campaign by 75% you brainlet
ever truly BTFO
they'll never die, and they'll never change.
It's not like you got only 100-180 currency per win. And it doesn't matter how good you did - everyone on your side gets the same ammount.
your dad is a shill
has a soyboy good goy dad
good i feel sorry for people like you
And after Neofag got screwed the problem just got worse
who is this
don't fuck with gamers
can i downvote this post
i think it is more because they dont really follow any rules, the way they work is too organic and you can clearly see that this "right" has no place in such conversation, if you open a chat they will try to make remarks like that to make it seem like they are human
and because of this btw if you have an order yal should try to refund being as annoying as possible
never bought battlefront 2 but had bought battlefront 1 last year and believe it or not i just asked for a refund having played it for over 60 hours and they approved it, i spent like 1 hour with the attendant being extremely inconclusive/pretending to not know english/having browser issues/being a mental little girl/etc and it went through, the way they deal with the public is just stupid
im sure its neofag calling everyone redditors
because most of the time it happens it isnt when someone is acting like a redditor but rather that they just disagree with the person, i think neofags stole an old insult to try to make themselves look more like oldfags
Nothing is too big to fall. Star Wars TFA Merchandise was rotting in the stores and people are already burned out on the yearly star wars shit. Also NuFront 1 died extremely quickly on PC/Xbone and was pretty much only kept alive on PS4
With such a big backlash pre release this could turn into another Mass Effect Andromeda
The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes. As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we're looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily basis, and we'll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via gameplay. We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets. Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.
lmaoing right now IRL desu
What? You're telling me I can refund my BF1? I probably only played like 20 hours or something. What exactly did you say to them to get it refunded?
Just don't buy the game...
yeah man, go have some bonding time and shit
Do not respond to it. Filter it.
as i said believe it or not for me it worked
Order Date: May 3, 2016
Your Refund Has Been Issued
it was a mix of luck and inconsistent language/making up problems because as i said the way they deal with the public is way too organic, they will go out of their way to do stupid things like saying "right" to skip to a next step etc.. all to make you happy, i wont paste my chat because it is just too long, i wasted like a whole hour from the attendant
