TL;DR
Destiny gives fake experience values and sneakily increases the time needed to earn a lootbox depending on the time spent playing, to promote the purchases through real money.

TL;DR
Bungie Cancels Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris Stream To Address Fan Anger.

Thats such bs. Its not enough to make your product, and sell it, and get money for it. Ya gotta sell digital items that are already part of the game, and then hinder gameplay in a way to persuade you to wanna buy stuff, and then on top of that, deceive people so they are actually hindered even more.

In the end EA is a company whos only goal is to make money.

The real "idiots" (using the word some of these people use) are the people who buy these games. Sending a clear message to the developers and publishers that whatever they just did works wonders no matter the PR.

Most big companies couldn't care less about the bad press because they still make a boat load of money from the people who will buy just about anything and spend a small fortune on lootcrates.

Don't blame the company, blame the players who support them.


I'm inclined to agree, especially with governments wanting to stick their noses into this.

This has been one of the most enjoyable things to happen all year, honestly.
2017 was a good year to laugh about EA :sohappy:
