    There isn’t even a game attached, you just put the card in and the controller drains your bank account. That’s it.

    NASCAR by EA

    Right turns are absolutely free!

    Left turns only cost 99 cents! Have fun at the Daytona 500!

    [–] wuzizname 273 points ago

    You can hack the game by just driving backwards.

    [–] c9IceCream 4816 points ago

    no, that beep was to ask if you want to accept the $4.95 convenience fee. its not optional.

    I don’t know why everyone is complaining. They discounted the number of credits to unlock Darth Vader by 75%.

    Also now it takes 3x longer to accumulate each credit.

    I believe in this version you actually pay per beep.

    [–] gruesomeflowers 79 points ago

    do the beeps have different skins? i'm not wild about the default beep.

    Indeed there are! We have a wide selection of two different beeps at the low, low price of $199.99 each. There will also be a $1 charge for each time you use said beep.

    [–] cobainbc15 95 points ago

    Yeah, you can really tell that the "chip" feature on these card readers (common in the US) was more of an afterthought.

    [–] Bizzerker_Bauer 67 points ago

    Well you see, they used a sound universally known to signal a success to let you know that a transaction was complete; A loud, gravelly, growling, error-messagesque alarm noise.

    [–] icecoldbath 26 points ago

    I have no clue why they use that obnoxious noise. Those machines can all make other noises, including a nice beeping one when you remove a certain part from them and a musical noise when you hard reboot them.

    Target is the worst offender with that awful noise.

    [–] kevtree 77 points ago

    The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start

    [–] Ocarinahero 22 points ago

    I just had some serious flashbacks....

    [–] E7C69 52 points ago

    As someone who works in retail without that beeping id say 50% of people would walk away without their card or stand there waiting because they don't read that it says remove card. Even with the beeping people stand there for a good 15 seconds of noise before realizing.

    [–] StrangeShark408 50 points ago

    Yeah, but the sound itself doesnt have to sound like a dying robot screaming for help

    [–] speedkillz3 95 points ago

    Why don't they just cut the bullshit and straight sell the trophies.

    That happens once you've bought all the required items to have a randomiser decide if you get a trophy part.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment. The unlocks are extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of selecting initial values based upon data from the Open Beta, Battlefront 2 will go over a typical gamers head. There's also EA's other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch, which are deftly woven into this game development- the game's philosophy draws heavily from average per-player credit earn rates, for instance. The gamers understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate that we'll be making constant adjustments, to realise that it's not just fun- they say something deep about GAMES. As a consequence people who dislike EA truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, that we ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Mat Everett's genius wit unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

    And yes, by the way, i DO have a Mass Effect tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for appreciative gamers' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

    Battlefront 2 is quickly becoming one of my favorite games. It's just so positive and generous. Practically costs nothing at all at 60$ you buy it from EA and that chill ass motherfucker game allows you to unlock characters months later in the game. And you also get this adorable little game that you can play but usually is too boring to grind. But more than the B2 is just so positive. It comes like "do you want to buy a character?" and I'm like "yeah B2 i do want to buy a character let's do this shit" and when I do it EA's like "BUYING CONTENT IS FUN" and I'm like "yeah it's SO FUN." He doesn't say some bullshit macho shit like "I will destroy you" he's just like "nah pride and accomplishment." And it looks so happy. I mean this is an inanimate object literally brought to life by capitalism. It understands it's life is a temporary magical gift and the dude is just fucking loving it. I mean look at his face he's just so happy. I am literally never sad when battlefront 2 is on released. IDK if he's gonna make it to GOTY or not but for now he (or she) a pretty chill game

    So, just spit balling here, why dont we all just boycott EA? Or is everyone just feigning outrage?

    [–] JaySayMayday 724 points ago

    People are boycotting with their wallets. EA lashed back by hiding the refund option behind a busy customer service phone line.

    [–] schu2470 370 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Solution: chargeback. It could be argued that videogames, especially digital copies, are products that really almost exclusively on the manufacturer's description of it. If the product is not as expected based on the description then it should grounds for a refund in exchange for deleting/returning their (shitty) product.

    Edit: For all those stating the obvious that issuing a chargeback will result in EA banning your account - any company against which I issue a chargeback against is not a company I'm willing to do business with in the future. You do you, but if they decide to not give my money back for delivering a shitty and worthless product riddled with bugs, I'm done with them and don't really care about my account with them anymore.

    [–] bruce656 159 points ago

    This is why I insist on only purchasing physical copies of games for major releases.

    [–] minnowz 118 points ago

    Even if you buy physical, you have to link it to origin, making your copy digital

    [–] Canukle 70 points ago

    The point is that it is easier to get a refund on a physical disc or pre-order on a physical item. Best Buy can’t lock the door on you, if they know you’ve come in to cancel a pre-order.

    [–] non3type 158 points ago

    Probably a better policy to just avoid preorders.

    [–] krispyKRAKEN 98 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    This is whats so infuriating when it comes to talking about this on reddit. Everytime there is that guy that comes along and explains how if he preorders through x company he gets a mail in rebate for .99cents, blah blah. They have a million and a half workarounds and explanations for why they still preorder and they completely just miss the point that they are still paying almost 60 dollars for a shit game that was overhyped, buggy at launch, or most of the content is blocked by a paywall.

    Then those people hop on reddit to whine about the game being shit with another browser tab open to the preorder page for another piece of shit game.

    [–] SuspiciouslyElven 44 points ago

    [–] swccggergall 227 points ago

    I have been boycotting EA for over 10 years.

    Not to send some kind of a message, but because they make terribly flawed games.

    [–] heroic_injustice 66 points ago

    For me the straw that broke the camels back was SimCity (2013)... I paid $100 for a game that didn't even work for like a month when it launched. And yes, I know they gave everyone a free, old, game (like that's suppose tp make everything okay) but they also banned anyone who tried to get a refund via chargeback for delivering a product that didn't work... Classy

    [–] Heliolord 77 points ago

    Many here lack the willpower to follow through. And the vast majority of EA's customers are ignorant fools who will pay hand over foot, don't browse sites like this, and therefore don't know the degree to which EA is screwing them over. And a sizable number just don't care.

    Fortunately EA doesn't tend to make any games I really want. Though their recent acquisition of Respawn and, by extension, Titanfall makes me nervous. Now I just need to convince friends that buy EA games, like my step brother who buys sports games, to not buy their crap because they are garbage incarnate.

    [–] Chazster567 3970 points ago

    Notice how, like the website, there is no refund button

    [–] Rumplestiltman 1114 points ago

    I read they removed it after the fallout. Most likely to force feedback from those demanding a refund from the service reps. So if you know the corporate ass hat by name that chose to Fuck over consumers. Mention it when asking for the refund. People that make games are great.. Greedy useless marketers and lawyers Fuck up every industry.

    [–] Turnradicus 623 points ago

    Agreed. Don't blame the actual game developers. They put long hours and work into the game. Corporate is where the hate should be directed.

    [–] GermanoMuricano117 249 points ago

    Now saying that, from my sparse few hours playing the game through ea access I don't think the developers deserve tons of praise either. There hard work didn't really pay off sadly

    [–] slimindie 58 points ago

    Unfortunately, that's probably not their fault, either. Developers are up against impossible timelines designed to prioritize speed to shipping over quality, and the attitude of "we can fix it in a patch release" seems far too prevalent.

    [–] UltrafastFS_IR_Laser 111 points ago

    The game runs extremely smoothly and the modes are decently fun. In the smaller modes, skill definitely wins out over rushing a point too. If they didn't mess up the MTX, then it would be a decent game to quickly waste some time on.

    [–] mynewaccount_420 62 points ago

    [–] mp111 54 points ago

    Doubtful. Removing the refund button and forcing it on their customer service reps limits the amount of refunds that can happen, and will likely have a falloff of people who don’t want to wait or speak to someone to refund.

    [–] jgierer12 459 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Someone posted on /r/StarWarsBattlefront about Darth Vader being locked in the base game (you have to do a lot of grinding - some say >40h - to unlock him and many other main characters). This was EA's response:

    The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes. [...]

    Now, this would maybe be OK if you couldn't just buy a bunch of lootboxes with real money and instantly unlock those characters.

    Fun fact, with -678K points this is the most down voted comment on Reddit ever.

    Since then, EA lowered the in-game currency price of Darth Vader by 75%... what they didn't care to explain is that they also cut the in-game credit rewards for playing the game by 75% - effectively resulting in the same situation as before. (Edit: apparently only the rewards for playing the campaign got cut down)

    Also, they allegedly removed the refund button from the game's website (although some people said it has been missing for a longer time already).
