DICE just announced that they removed the microtransactions (MTX, for the cool kids) from Battlefront 2.
I guess that means my purchase of Battlefront 2 didn't make the problem worse?
I kid. No really, it was a joke.
What's not a joke, however, is that DICE or EA or whoever people love to hate these days is at least trying to course correct.
I have one last troll left in me for the night. I imagine the people who live for nothing but the EA hate train (I can think of a few from the post two days ago) look a little something like this... (Edit for clarity: The one who would never buy the game but stir up trouble just because it's EA.)
In all seriousness, I'm very happy to see that microtransactions are hopefully being rethought. If you're suddenly thinking there's balance to the force, you're probably wrong. I imagine they WILL come back. I hope they take the time to completely remove them and not even introduce cosmetic ones either. That's right, I dislike all microtransactions including cosmetic ones.
Regardless, like several people who I recently discovered are closet Battlefront 2 players -- even going as far as removing the 'what game you're playing' in Discord (like it's a bumper sticker for an unpopular candidate you can't let people know you voted for) -- I'll still keep playing and enjoying myself! 🙂
Here's hoping in the near future those who boycotted will find themselves able to play! I'd love for you to join me.
P.S. Leave the hate (Edit clarity: personal attacks, ad hominem, strawman) in the other post. Let's have some good discussion in this one about how EA might be able to course.
