Last lootbox,
*Tire Screech*
I've been wanting one of the Widowmaker's skins.
I've been wanting one of these.
That is.. that is the best skin.
Oh lootboxes is back, as a controversy,
You may remember last year
With CSGO Lotto
There was uh, two YouTubers that owned the company
Of, uh, lootcrate gambling company
But lootcrate is back again on everyone's radar.
Thanks to EA
Thank you EA.
Now lootcrate just seems to be, EVERYWHERE these days.
You know I try and buy a sandwich,
"Would you like to lootcrate, the ingredients and see what you could get?
You could get the legendary mozzarella!"
Or perhaps when I go to the public restroom.
"Would you like to lootcrate the toilet PAPER?
You can get the legendary drop where a...
A man will wipe your anus for you sir,
It's.. uh.. it's IMPECCABLE.
Or you could just win toilet paper."
We need more lootcrates. I keep telling everyone,
There's not enough lootcrates.
CSGO has it,
Overwatch has it,
Even PUBG has it.
So there really should be no surprise that the latest Star Wars Battlefront II,
Has lootcrate in it
Lootboxes, whatever they called.
I am just thrilled.
I can't wait to open ALL those boxes
On camera
And have an epic freakout
over what's inside.
*dude freaking out over roblox csgo case opening.*
*Okay, too much freakout over a butterfly knife emerald..."
Oh my god. A virtual skin for my
That is, definitely exciting.
Maybe i'm not the right person to criticize lootboxes cause I personally have
Zero interests in them.
I find them extremely repetitive.
I don't see the appeal, in virtual clothing.
Okay? It just seems like something
Not that appealing.
But EA was sitting down at a meeting,
Doing their quarterly finance,
And trying to brainstorm ideas on how, to get more money.
"How can we squeeze more money out of our customer?
How about we make our own distribution platform, cutting of Steam,
And making the general experience of accessing our games,
A giant chore?
But not evil enough.
"How can we make people pay,
Instead of 54.99? Well we'll give them the.. E L I T E Edition.
Those idiots will love it!"
But not evil enough.
"What about day 1 DLC?
NOT EVIL ENOUGH! (ง ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)=/̵͇̿̿/'̿'̿̿̿ ̿ ̿̿
Wha wha wha wha, what about a Season Pass?
NOT EVIL ENOUGH ̿'̿'\̵͇̿̿\з=( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°)=ε/̵͇̿̿/'̿̿ ̿ ̿ ̿ ̿ ̿
Okay, I got it.
Once they spend £69.99
They'll spend even more on lootboxes."
Now lootboxes is nothing new, and uh,
Really, all this controversy that started around EA and Star Wars,
Someone on Reddit that was testing out the game, figured out that since the rewards are no longer
Based on your skill in the game.
Let's say if you preform really well in the game it's hardly effected
It's morly based on how much time you play the game.
So if you wanna play as Darth Vader, in the new Star Wars game,
You have to unlock him as a hero
And to unlock heroes, you do so by purchasing lootboxes,
OR you can earn them through, through playing the game
Seems fair enough, you know. You get two options.
But someone did some math and calculated that it took,
It'll take you 40 hours of gameplay to unlock one hero and that is cutting out all the loading screens,
All the time between matches and the fact that you can't buy any other lootcrates in the meantime.
You really have to focus 40 hours specifically,
For that chance to get that hero drop.
Or you.. you know, you could just pay 20 bucks. *laughs* HUEHUEHUEHE
I mean it's genius, you know, you have people spend this amount of money already,
Why not, make them spend more?
Needless to say, people weren't too happy about this.
The post uh went viral on Reddit.
EA then made a response, which uh, you know, was probably the most well crafted,
Well thought out response of all time.
Which is why it got 20,000 minus points.
The most disliked post ever on Reddit.
Let's see what it says
I don't feel like typing it out so just read the screen c:
Idk how to subtitle this noise. When you finally nut on No Nut November?
Here's uh, here's why-or.. uh..my opinon just goes out, in the toilet.
I agree that lootboxes are terrible. It's a scummy way of practice.
But if you hate them so much, just don't buy them.
Just. Don't. Buy. Them.
They exist for a reason. They exist because people are dumb enough to buy them.
Now I understand that the concept is that Whales, pretty much as they're called
People just spend an overload amount of money on the game and that's how they make most of their profit.
Because they really squeeze out, an insane amount out of certain consumers,
It's not like everyone is buying the lootcrates, it's actually probably a tenth of players that are actually buying them
But that's enough to justify them existing
And it just overall ruin the experience for everyone playing the game.
It's not like EA has the best track record.
I.. I don't see how anyone is surprised by this.
Do you not remember how many D.. how many DLCs they had for Sims?
Sims Livin' Large!
Sims House Party!
Sims Hot date!
These were all treated as individual games and expansion packs. And they've been doing this for years.
And it's not like the the whole practice of gambling isn't.. or..
Buying something and not getting quite what you want is..
Has never existed before. We practically grow up with it as kids.
And maybe it's cause i'm not the biggest Star Wars fan ever, but basically,
EA is holding.. holding the franchise hostage pretty much.
Yeah just read that.. I'm not typing all that.^^^
Now despite what your opinion on the topic is, the memes,
THE MEMES are very fresh.
They're veary naice (ಥ ͜ʖಥ)
EA's new purposed handheld console.
I really, I really appreciate this one:
no homo..
How brave..
How brave Electronic Arts.
Now a lot of people got fired back around the controversy as well because
There was this guy named Bigg Sean claiming to work for EA
Saying that he got 7 death threats and over 1600 individual personal attacks.
Now I don't know how you calculate that, like, you can keep up with all, all of them.
And I don't mean to sound insensitive or anything, but if I made a big deal out of
Anytime I got a death threat on the internet,
I wouldn't have time to make videos.
It's not, death threats on the internet don't mean anything.
But that's another topic.
Now a lot of game magazines took it upon themselves to
Use this as an opportunity to point out how awful gamers are for criticizing the poor game devs.
When it turns out, there's no confirmation that he actually works for EA.
Uh, most likely he doesn't work for EA, but at the same time who really fu(CHRISTIAN CHANNEL)ing cares?
At the end of the day, it's Disney and EA.
Two large companies.
They're gonna squeeze out as much money as they can.
What you can do as a consumer is to not buy into it.
Don't be that, brainless Star Wars fanboy that has to buy all of them
Just don't buy this one.
Stop buying lootcrates, refund your games, and stop crying.
I found that there's a petition so that the ESRB would declare lootboxes as gambling.
Which I 100% agree with
It is a form of gambling
And it should be rated as such.
It, it, blows my mind that people are surprised that EA and Disney,
Were somehow trying to squeeze money out of people.
Like that's never done before.
Buy Indie games.
You have people working passionately, on their own projects.
Support them instead.
We have so many options right now, as a gamer. This year was incredible, we got so many great releases.
Support them instead.
It's re.. it's really not that complicated.
Anyway, thank you for watching this video.
Do you agree or disagree? Leave a comment down below.
Leave a like if you enjoyed watching.
One like you could unlock my new lootbox system,
Where in every video i'm announcing a lootbox....
Where you could win...
Another Video
While finishing up this video, EA Star Wars made another statement,
3 statements about this thing, I sure hope they get it right this time.
This was never our intention. Sorry we didn't get this right.
We hear you loud and clear, so we're turning off all in-game purchases.
That is fantastic. They listened to the community and they responded.
Wait a minute...
The ability to purchase crystals in-game will become available at a later date.
So basically what you're trying to save the launch
And you're going to add micro-transactions anyway...
Congratulations to everyone.
Now I know that people are going to be pissed about this, but at the same time,
They have a budget to recoup and they had a financial plan in this game.
They're gonna have to do it regardless.
They can't just give out, it's not a charity.
I feel like th.. everyone loses.
Congrats. [Subs by @caolantweets]
