DammitSinged : Cant spell 'Steal' without EA.

Zachary Rose : Game looks visually stunning. But it's all a fucking ruse.

Swifty Unknown : Isn't Battlefront 2 rated T for Teen? Weird how they're allowed to sell a game that is about gambling. [gam-bling] noun 1. the activity or practice of playing at a game of chance for money or other stakes. 2. the act or practice of risking the loss of something important by taking a chance or acting recklessly: 🤔

Kanglar : This video has 142 dislikes so far (and yes, I am keeping track for legal reasons).

GRZ NGT : That guy who got threats? He is not an EA eployee. Which on its own drops the shadow on validity of those threats themselves

Random Videos - Cr1TiKaL Full Streams : This is further proof that loot boxes ARE ruining video games even though they are technically "optional"

xXSilentAgent47Xx : Same way Rockstar and Take-Two did with GTA Online and their future games and people keep buying it. They grind 24/7 for/Forced to give with the real money to buy the items to have in the game (last and current year updates prove it, mostly kids buy those Shark Cards). Especially when Take-Two took down the Open IV and striking/giving strike to people for RDR cutscenes on YT back in 2010 after game release, they're bad as EA.

stewievader : -600k and counting. Only EA could be hated enough to break the most downvoted comment record by 30 fold in under a day.

ZeLunatic : I've been boycotting EA for YEARS, since they killed Bullfrog, Westwood, Origin Systems, and a LOT of others. For YEARS any time i see the EA logo on a game, i stay miles away from it. I've been "voting with my wallet" for that damn long. Sadly it doesn't seem to matter. The only reason those assholes make money is because they market to kids who beg to their parents to get the game so they can be like any other kid in the school yard. That's who EA predates on. And for that reason it's still gonna sell millions of copies and nothing will change. And it's fucking making me sick.

EnigmaticParadox : The worst part about EA is that they aren't even trying to ATTEMPT to hide the microtransaction meta of their games. Play ANY EA game and it is as blantantly apparent as a hummingbird jizzing on your cornea that players who only spent 60 dollars buying the game are at more of a disadvantage than a quadriplegic spider in a shadow puppet competition. 90% of the games you, the "I'd like to keep my money, please" player will spend is more painful and sad than watching a schizophrenic bumblebee attempt to collect nectar. Some games like Overwatch which do have some microtransactions restrict it to cosmetic based items. But that isn't good enough for EA, as CEO Andrew Wilson drew on the EA brainstorming blackboard in precum "MAKE MICROTRANSACTIONS BENEFIT THE PLAYER!". That's right, for just 15 dollars you can get the exact same weapon as the stock but with a larger clip and more damage. It's about as disgusting as a snake attempting to anally vore itself. I apologize for the rant but these penny pinching chimps at companies like EA truly disgust me to the core and I would perhaps only blow air of my nose if I heard they were brutally mauled by the zombies known as the past 5 Madden NFL games.

Apathy : "Man, nothing screams pride and accomplishment like buying your way to the top of a leaderboard in a video game." -god, 2017

Alex cmf : Just passing by to give an update to this situation: They cut down the prices by 75%. BUT they also cut the points rewards in game by 75% too and tought nobody would notice. That is a shitty response and also a shady scam.

EnigmaticParadox : Can't spell Cheapskates without EA.

J Penn : The original Battlefront 2 will always be the best

Salkrye : People still play EA games and expect a good experience?

Alexander Wayne : Not buying this shit. Shame that the core game looks really good.

Batman : Remember when fully priced 60$ games didn't have Free to play based micro transactions? *Batman* remembers

VexedPersona : And it just came out that the person who said they got death threats from working at EA never actually worked at EA. So, there you go. EA is a shit company who lies to their customers on the daily.

AmericanHamburger : So everyone talking about "not buying EA games" are just bunch of liars? Hell nah!... I've been pirating their games for the last 10 years and I'm not regretting it :D

Papa John : just torrent it

CoolMoon : A fun game ruined by an awful company.

BrainShartStudios : Apparently the " EA dev" that's been getting death threats doesn't actually work for EA at all and the death threats were fake.

Neair : too bad biggsean66 "dev writer" was a fake

Jerard The Bacon : I do not play ea games

Pulse : So what do we do, then? There has to be some way of convincing the mass audience not the buy this game.

There's a starman waiting in the sky : EA Sports. It's in the trash.

The Kush Connoisseur : Gameplay recorded on an El Gato Potato?

Valheller : Atleast they gave us a new copy pasta. The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes. As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we're looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily basis, and we'll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via gameplay. We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets. Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.

Crade : Actually, BigSean is not confirmed to be an EA employee. After Journalists inquired, he locked down his account. It's very likely this is another PR strategy to get the heat off of them. What better way than to say "OH NO WE ARE GETTING DEATH THREATS :("

ThePitofSidLord : They have already cut the cost of heroes 75% But then they also cut of amount of credits you earn in game by 75%

PlagueOfGripes : EA will do what all modern major companies do and go for an Outdated Outrage strategy. State you will 'make changes' so that it permeates search results with seemingly positive articles about EA being mindful of the customer. At the same time, they're then free to implement the monetization they were going to use the entire time, without actually changing anything. It's planned obsolescence for marketing - they're aware enough of the negative reception that they plan marketing deployments months in advance to not only counter them, but utilize them to increase sales.

PurplePrawn : Man, I'm really glad I don't like shooters or online multiplayer games in general. It means I don't have to give a single shit about any of this hahaha.

Brian Lopez : Am I the only one that doesn't think it's not that big of a deal? It's like a shittier type of MMO but it's not the most shitty choice in a game recently

Mr Nobody : EA will soon implement a feature in which a small device connected to your controller will send a small electrical current up your penishole every 15 minutes you don't spend 20$ on microtransactions, to give the players a sense of difficulty and accomplishment of course.

Vizorous : Since Disney doesn't take shit, just tweet out that Disney is promoting gambling through the game and Disney will have to talk with EA about the system.

Daddy Donald : They should call the controversy “Vadergate”

Phil Gamer : We all know people are still gonna buy the game anyways and then complain its an endless cycle.

[TU] PerniciousPotato : Im so pissed that EA bought respawn. Get ready for lootboxes in titanfall 3! YAY, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED

Josh Peters : HAHAHAHA if you people haven't seen yet, EA didn't like the title of having the most down voted comment in Reddit history, so they reduced the cost of characters by 75% from 40k credits to 10k. Penguiz0 won Please upvote this so people see

Tenzing Khedup : Well Crit1kal, it turns out it selling 60% LESS than SWBFEA1! So its working.

lolnoob95 : Wasn't the boycott kinda working since they removed the refund option?

Jackie Jikariti : I never heard people complain when battlefield does the same thing.

Weekly Sassuage : I cant believe capitalism is ruining gaming

Swifswaf : Pandemic's Battlefront 2 will always be the best.

The Title But It's Not : I'd buy a Cr1tikal lootbox

CZ : 680,625 downvotes. Woooo

Steve Ocean : Well, you were wrong (which does not mean EA is right), Heroes now cost 15000 instead of 60000 already. Gotta give them credit for "fixing" something that fast

Cesar The Salad : Who the hell gave EA's Reddit comment 17 Reddit gold?? Oh my god... they even made the justification of microtransactions... a microtransaction. >.>

Irishninja0 : Hey critikal, you wouldn't have known this when making the video (more than likely) but as it turns out the guy claiming he got death threats from these people who were mad at EA, he was lying. He doesn't even work for EA, the guy even went so far as to lock his account when he got called out for lying. So yes, the whole death threat thing was a sham.

Japhet Ye : Summary: EA has implemented a shitty system in an otherwise great game, and there is nothing we can do about it until lootboxes are not profitable anymore
