  • Last lootbox,

  • YES!

  • *Tire Screech*

  • I've been wanting one of the Widowmaker's skins.

  • *Clapping*

  • 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

  • K-NIFE

  • 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.

  • Boring

  • 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?

  • GENIUS! That's GENIUS!"

  • But not evil enough.

  • "How can we make people pay,

  • 69.99

  • 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."

  • Excellent

  • 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.

  • Congratulations!

  • Let's see what it says

  • I don't feel like typing it out so just read the screen c:

  • BY SPENDING 40 HOURS!!!!!!!

  • WHEN YOU PAY £64 YOU GET A LOT OF THINGS.

  • NOT ALL OF THINGS,

  • BUT A LOT OF THINGS

  • Idk how to subtitle this noise. When you finally nut on No Nut November?

  • OR YOU COULD JUST PAY US $20

  • 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.

  • Okay?

  • 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.

  • Seriously.

  • 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

  • Umm

  • 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

  • *laughing*

  • 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]
