Well, when everyone is going for the dirty money you either go for it as well or you get outraced. That's really how the capitalist game works.

You can be the nicest person on the planet, but if your competitors find a way to "legally" exploit people, you either jump on the train or they buy you out. And I don't even think that Activision counts as the nicest people on the planet.

So let's guess what next game will be full of lootboxes and microtransactions.

So one of the most boring and stupid games (in the context) might actually make it to the Olympics before the rest. =(Reply

Just because it's boring to you doesn't mean it's boring to everyone else. It's the biggest and one of the longest standing eSports, what else could take it's place?

Which was stuffed full of microtransaction which kinda killed the game.

Overwatch's loot box system isn't as innocent as it seemsOverwatch's loot box system isn't as innocent as it seems

This is the best thing I've read on PCGN in a very long time, maybe ever. There are so many drones willing to echo "it's ok if it's just cosmetics!" It's not ok. Cosmetics were an integral part of online games. Unlocking new looks through play randomly or by achievements was rewarding. That fun has been stripped out of games first by microtransactions and now by loot boxes.

I used to say that, and I would at least say it's the best scenario if one MUST have loot boxes at all, but it still is gambling, I think there's really little room to argue otherwise.


So it should be limited, even banned, from games. Especially AAA full priced ones.

I think it's really hard to argue that loot boxes AREN'T gambling. The main defense is that they give you some guaranteed value, but that's pretty weak to begin with. It barely holds for a game like Hearthstone, which I guess is in a gray area, but definitely can't hold for Battlefront 2.

I really hope so, I played Diablo 3 more than enough for what I paid it, but it still left me vastly unsatisfied.


I don't think the fault is in the game though, I think it might be a problem with the lore.. what I mean is that you can push the whole demon/undead theme only so far, and it's already SO MUCH abused.


I wish they could cut from it, but I can't imagine how. New engine, sure, but what to do with the game exactly to renew the formula?


I have no idea.

I can see where you coming from... I hate to say it but I don't know if they ever going to end the diablo series once and for all lore-wise.

How much money they have isn't relevant. If someone goes out of his way to purposefully harass someone else he is first and foremost a dick, or a full fledged p.o.s.


And they deserve every punishment the devs are able to dish out. Don't wanna get banned? Play the game like you were a decent human being.


Pretty "naive outlook", I know.

Lord Gorzul Avatar

Well That's life and reality, we aren't living in a utopia.

There's always going to a be small percentage of dicks. You can ban 100 , there will be 100 more. It's not a solution.

And it isnt easy to prove either. Quite often innocents get banned, which is the real problem here.

Would be much more sound to either accept the fact that some people are dicks, or not tempt them.


Again, if you go down to harlem yelling the N word and get beat up by a gang, I'd say it's your fault as much as theirs.


I dont feel bad for the streamers in the least bit, they are making things unnecessarily complicated.


CSGO matches are delayed for that very reason, and nobody is nagging.

This is nonsense.. if I deliberately go out of my way to harass someone I deserve to be punished, end of story. It's really not that hard, but I still enjoy the tears and whining of the snipers though.

That is a naive outlook, in general.

I would punish the streamer if anything for whining.

They can set a 30s delay to their stream and solve the issue. It's as simple as that.

If you're going to go out yelling you have a million dollars in your pocket, you're deservedly going to get mugged sooner or later, that's on you.

First time I hear of this, seems pretty interesting, could be useful to wind down from UPBG/Overwatch, or to just fool around a bit.Reply

Yep - it's a good option for a quick blast, but it's also surprisingly moreish.
