Geetsly's : If it remains profitable and the PR doesn't get 𝘵𝘰𝘰 bad, they'll never stop with this shit, simple as that. BTW thanks for always using our tracks sweg <3 Been with you since 20k.

Sir Swag : A small update: EA has reduced the cost of acquiring Heroes by 75%. However they also reduced the amount of credits earned from completing the campaign by 75% as well more or less offsetting the change. Update 2: EA has disabled micro transactions entirely to reevaluate the progression system. Noice.

Saint Milk : I'm sure that EA swallowing *smaller and treasured* game studios in the past has accounted for the hate....remeber dead space? EA will make sure you *never* see it again.

thegreatcalvinio : *EA: the Harvey Weinstein of the video game industry*

VlRGlL : RIP Respawn

Pariable : EA, where studios go to die.

Colox : Thanks for the scrub bomb

Mister Amico : R.I.P Titanfalls free updates :[

LesserSphinx : Even though you use a meme voice there's a big sense of wisdom in your words

Legobiy24 : If I wave $200s in EA's face, you think they'll give me a complimentary loot box? -because loot crates add -*-so much-*- to the game experience-

magoichi75 : It's sad a guy that makes videos using gameplay and the Microsoft robot voice makes so much more sense that triple A gaming companies, also seriously I'm surprised you defend micro transactions.

Ian Paulus : "We want the truth EA" "You can't handle the truth!"

The Ranger33 : Everyone else: This is a terrible business model and this needs to stop. Me: Darth Maul shouldn’t be able to force choke, he was really awful when it came to his force powers.

Marito moko : The EA VS Reddit made laugh too much xD

Mentor : Straight facts

xFusionz619 : Stand by for titanfail 3

Fred M : I have a friend in dice who is currently horrified that their baby, who they have worked on for years at this point, has been misused to make the greedy bastards at the top more money, rich enough as they are and because of how this utter disregard for their craft they are thinking of quitting simply due to how badly their game has been handled, and the good people at respawn have now lost any creative control and soon their reputation will be ground into the muck like other good devs under EA such as bioware or Bungie under activision, we need partners not publishers! They care about nothing other than the colour of your money

Sreten Knezevic : They bought Respawn? Oh shit... *this is to provide a level of pride and achievememt*

Greater Gamer : Just don't purchase the game... It isn't enough to just ignore the microtransactions. The only way to ensure the message is heard is to vote with your wallet. So FFS just don't buy the game if you want to send them a message, don't give in to their PR bullshit. Too often gamers seem to easily forgive their mistakes just because they appealed to our demands slightly. They lowered the prices to generate goodwill and to disuade any further criticism and entice potential customers. If we just accept this and buy their game anyways then nothing is ever going to fucking change. So stop. There are plenty of better products you can waste your money on. If you truly want to make a difference, abstaining from purchases is the only chance at doing that. But simply ignoring microtransactions will never fix any of these issues.

Dull Turtle : I would nut in swag

Robo Trex : Respawn is going to get shutdown like Visceral. They were bought for about 130 million, with all the rest of the purchase coming from if EA does well due to Respawn in the next 4 years. Respawn is now in charge of the linear Star Wars game Visceral was working on, and Titanfall 3 will come out before the 4 years are up. The only way Respawn can keep itself from not getting permanently shutdown is to guarantee their monetary gain by putting as much purchasable content in these two games. It's sad to see Titanfall 2, an amazing game with beautiful ethics kill its creator because they cared too much and the people who cried for change didn't want it as much as they said.

T. Hui : Someone please make this go viral on reddit, we need more people to hear these words of wisdom

Jay : 2k still is worse though

Lim Han Yang : You can't win Anikin, I have bought the "High Ground" dlc

Evan Simmons : sir swag ur a god

Juxty : 1:53 quality meme

mkchillin : I can recall a time when the Battlefront franchise represented the awesome potential of Star Wars realized in a fantastic interactive experience. It now is yet another husk of a formerly great creation that has been exploited and bastardized beyond repair. It's so sad. Remember when we were sooo excited that these games were being brought back? 'member Star Wars... Battlefront??

katsupoi : I hate EA but death threats.....

Nico Pavlou : Where is the funky song at the end? Unscrubbed.

Marky : It's p2w. Deserves the bad reputation. It seems the only good thing you had to say of the game was how it looks.

MisterTbone : Money is tight in my house and I've made some modifications to this month's budget in order to buy this game. But I think i won't buy this game anymore

Yamitori Sōkei : Publishers need to stop the shady business practices and let developers do the work they're good at. Cosmetics are fine to monetise but when you put game changing gear in lootboxes or behind ridiculously priced currency, then there's a problem.

BlitzBurn : It is both hilarious and sad that one of the most level headed and reasonable commentators is the one who uses the mlg voice

Im Betmen : this is acceptable in a f2p game but Jesus christ the fact that we need to pay 60 dollars to even play the gane

Ya boi Here : The thing I liked most about SWBF1 was the accomplishment you got for levelling up and unlocking new items especially the jumpbpack

Pawsper Pinnkney : where the discord squad at tho

OperationHealth WorkedAmazingly : I personally believe r6s and titanfall 2 did micro transactions right as with r6s everyone can get every operator within a week or two of playing from a few hours a day instead of making them season pass only. This is why I have bought both year 1 and 2 season pass as I am happy to support this fair system the only benefits I get for having the pass are that I don't pay for the new operators and I get them a week earlier than other players and i get a 10% discount in the shop. Plus as of writing this u cannot purchase alpha packs instead u win them by playing games or buy them with in game currency and titanfall 2 well sir swag said it perfectly I think companies should look at the when these to games handled micro transactions and loot packs/boxes

FallenHD : Enjoyed the beta for about 3 hours, uninstalled it after that, got bored and sad news that EA bought Respawn... They probably planned to do so for some time, why not let the people buy what ever cosmetics they want in Battlefront 2 exactly like Titanfall 2...? Because the CEO of EA is a good businessman for making money... not for publishing games... But it goes without saying, the death threads against the developers went too far... Don't buy the game, that will send out a stronger message to EA to 'git gud' if say 1 million gamers don't buy the game

Hewo Awad : please never make a voice or face review

Properly Diced Onyon : Well, they just bought respawn. *NOW IT'S PERSONAL!!*

Ookamy : Sir Swag is the hero we need and deserve!!

Ethereal Records : :)

Trail Whale : sir swag has a sexy voice

Shadowy-Squid 682 : Just like how DLC and pre order bonuses are essential to every single game in existence nowadays, I wouldn't be surprised if in 5 years every game will have shitty lootboxes... God I miss splitscreen co-op and cheat codes...

V3ikker s : The heroes nowadays cost 15k

T F : That bit you walkabout how this ends up effecting the rest of the gaming market from here on out is true. Red dead 2 is coming out in a few months (hopefully) and I'm sure rockstar is watching this situation closely. If EA does well after this, this will become the norm

Smurfson : Very well said Sir Swag. Thank you for this, and thank you for being so great with your community. Means a lot to each and every fan of your videos

Chris : They reduced credit costs, but they also cut down credit *gain* by the same percentage. Also making a p2w game that rewards more currency to players who do better is even worse than one where the bottom fragger who's bottom fragging because he doesn't have enough money to buy overpowered stuff gets less credits to stunt his progression even more.

Rabid Dog : The original Battlefront 2 was a lot better

JackPool : Thanks for another great video :)
