The issue here is addiction not gaming.

People with addictive personalities will find they can get addicted to almost anything. Gaming stimulates when you are playing and is therefore something than can be seen as addictive. There is nothing surprising in this article at all.

Any addiction has the potential be be destructive.

This CFO clearly doesn't understand the user base.

I don't want a pink Darth Vader running around but there are enough valid cosmetic changes and skins that this is a non-issue, its an excuse.

I don't want a CoD style customisation option, what we want are skins. New Hope Leia, Besping Luke, New Hope Solo, New Hope Vader, Old Han, Young han (Solo tie in), ESB Boba, Concept Boba......... Clone and Stormtrooper armours, rebel character races and so on. There are enough costumes that they could milk a ton of money out of it.

The we can't 'customize coz of canon' is bullshit. Its cosmetics not full customisation. They seem determined to ruin this game.

@Hexagon_Sun Sorry but the progression is not the whole game is a part of it. For me the game is playing the matches and there is nothing shitbag about it. Its a good game at its core that has some shitty mechanics. Those should be the target of the anger, not the core game made by Dice.

@Mister_Vimes That is not what the release said. It says the game will be changed and then it will be enabled. Not saying its perfect but this is the first step towards what was asked for. I love the way people are leaving out half of the sentence.

Two key complaints have been listened to, Hero cost and paid advantage. Progression is still fucked up but in both the AMA and in this press release they have said they are committed to fixing this.

I have no issue with the EA bashing but make sure its factual.

It was weird because they must have felt they needed to do something but they clearly don't know what that something is so it lead to non-committal answers to questions.

One of the Devs in the AMA did make an effort, Dennis was the best one and he did say this -

"We were incredibly saddened by the negative response from you, the community on Reddit about the game. In-fact, we hated it, we truly did, because we want to make a game that you love. We've made a really cool, fun and beautiful game but it was overshadowed by issues with the progression system. We will fix this."

How much they can change it seems to feel more dependent on EA than it does on DICE and there was no on from EA on the AMA which was telling.

EA's response to Star Wars: Battlefront 2 hero unlock fury isn't going down well

brazzauk

Not an an article about BF2 but shows where EA are going. They don't seem to understand mobile is not and should not be comparable to console gaming as the investment is front loaded.


EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that online subscriptions could be the future of annual boxed releases of sports games like FIFA, and Madden NFL.

According to Wilson, as the industry moves more towards the games-as-a-service model and consumers rely more and more on digital downloads, this transition will become easier. Speaking to Bllomberg, Wilson gave the example Madden’s mobile title, which released three years ago and only received big updates every season.

With that in mind, the CEO is aware that there’s a challenge in translating a model that works great on mobile to a console game. “When we design a game that lives in a true streaming world, we have to think about screen size and session time,” said Wilson.

“How does a Madden game that exists in the cloud manifest on your mobile phone, one minute at a time? How does that manifest on your 60-inch TV, an hour at a time.”

Sadly This looks like a huge disjoin between the Devs and the publisher. EA seems determined to drive a wedge between the game and gamers.

Feel for DICE as the game looks and plays great.

Star Wars Battlefront 2's free The Last Jedi DLC gets a release date

@shiftymorgan I get it but the vitriol is a joke. There is such a thing as consumer choice and being accused of being part of the problem because I am going to play a game is beyond a joke. Play the game and then look at the care and attention in these maps, look at the effort plowed in by the devs and tell me all they care about is loot crates. Absolute nonsense.

Accusing players who will play it of being imbeciles or easily lead is a joke. These moral objectors who are taking a stance to protect the likes of me can fuck off. I won't be buying loot crates and from what I have played I will be playing more than enough to level up. Earned over 30000 credits in about 8 hours of play. Guns come from play not crates so for me I am happy with it. Same shit was floating around about Mordor and where is that argument now?

@ChiqueMF Different game and the mechanic of random loot drops is nothing new and is not reviled to this level in other games. Diablo, Destiny, Overwatch and on and on. The boxes can be can be worked for through play again like the other ones I mentioned. But the optional pay option means you want to ignore all the content in the game and focus on one micro aspect of the game.

@Arsecake_Baker So I have played it and I found it incredibly entertaining and have no intention of buying a single loot crate. But you on the other hand have labeled me a "problem" because I am going to play a game. Who has the problem? Why not get off your high horse and realise there are alternate opinions to yours. And the fact you label people who may buy a crate gullible says just as much about you as loot crate say about EA. Don't like it, don't buy it, consumer choice. But apparantly we have no choice because it doesn't meet your standards.

You and your recreational outrage can do one.

Should you buy an Xbox One X?

brazzauk

Own all consoles and I am usually an early adopter but this one I won't be buying. i would rather put the money into upgrading my PC. I can get all the so called exclusives on there such as Forza and Gears on PC and to be honest there is little else that grabs me.

Played an hour of Halo 5 and now only use my One S for the UHD Bluray and for streaming media, even with Forza Horizon 3 I played that on PC.

I will stick with my PS4 Pro and my PC (and not forgetting the Switch!).

@Ryuke I loved this game, I was invested before I played as I had watched kingsglaive and brotherhood so I didnt need all the exposition that other felt the story needed. For me the journey was amazing and I loved the characters. I can't put my finger on it but it resonated with me to the point where the gameplay shortcomings didnt matter. Only Last of Us had the same impact for me in recent times.

I get why people didnt like it and I have played Final Fantasy since the early days but for me this worked.
