Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Reddit Post Receives Over 680,000 Downvotes
there was soooooo much drama over Battlefront 2 last week, especially on reddit… but really, it seemed like it was everywhere… hell, i read that even CNN was reporting on it, which i’m sure probably gave a few EA execs a helluva headache — and rightfully so from all that i’ve read… when i heard that it would take something crazy like 4,500 hours to unlock all the characters, or around $2,100 with in-game loot box purchases… i was shocked.
never heard of something so crazy, and so blatantly greedy before… and i love star wars, and have been looking forward to this game for months and months now… but after all this shit, i just couldn’t bring myself to buy the game.
which is a real shame.
hopefully EA changes things up, and super quickly… and not only that, but i really hope they learned an important lesson here and don’t forget it… still blows my mind — it’s pretty damn hard to fuck up a star wars game, but they sure as hell managed to do it… and the backlash has been fierce.

PS. if i see the game on sale for $20 somewhere down the line i might pick it up, just to play the campaign.
