    It's designed that way so it can be run on ancient hardware.

    Well 5000 hours is a tad bit outrageous...

    Just 40 hours is do-able. Maybe I overestimated when it comes to average for gamers but it's not that far from what it is. Average gamer (kid) plays what? 2-3 hours weekdays? Let's round a bit down to 10hrs. Then Friday including late night, sat and Sunday? 7 hours per day for launch weekend. That's around 31 hours total. Just saying the average gamer will grind if it's worth it. Not saying this is worth it. Never played battlefield so I have no idea how progression is earned for this series...

    Real money transactions. Take for example shadow of war. How the ever loving fuck does that game need loot boxes? There is nothing to keep up with or any reason to even offer them. It's straight up preying on people's psychology who are struggling in a solo endeavor. Furthermore it adds in the secondary layer that makes it far worse in that the "post game" for the real ending is an ultra grind that try's to squeeze out those loot boxes from people.

    It's bullshit and the reason I recommended all my friends and acquaintances not buy the game. I was individually directly responsible for about 20 copies of that game being sold the first time around and the opposite this time around thanks to loot boxes.

    I actually like what Dice brings out like Bf1 and did like the last starwars Battlefront the problem was it was behind a paywall of a season pass, now no season pass but you can literally pay to upgrade weapons/ships in a multiplayer game on top of pay $60 , the problem big developers like EA keep doing this is there are people who are actually fine with shit like this.

    I'm actually fine with a season pass if the value of what I'm getting is ok ( IE like Witcher and BF1 to an extent) But this chopping up of games to put behind a paywall is getting nuts.

    but that was just to unlock Vader, a youtuber westie spent about $100 on loot crates and was wrecking people in space battles because his fighter had all the updgrades like 20% turn speed etc.

    EA will persist as they have, which is good for other companies to steal their shine. It'll continue, gives room for other great games to arise.

    Honestly don't care that much... did they change how much credits you made during online matches and how much loot boxes cost? Me and my bro only really played the 16 player and 20 player modes, so heroes arent that much of an issue... also I suck at using them so eh.

    What changes have been made since the EA Access 10 hour trial was released?
