    [–] YongYea also covering the recent Controversy Fionnyn 1 points ago in apexlegends

    He tends to focus on calling out publsiher's bs, which is perfectly fine imo. He does however also do positive videos, mainly Cyberpunk 2077 as of recently.

    It's not about wanting items cheaper - at least for majority that are up in arms. It's the fact that they have introduced a new system where you are now unable to pay for skins outright. This new event makes it so that you have to buy the loot boxes at 7$ a pop to get the CHANCE (1/24) of getting the item you want. Cause EA is all about them surprise mechanics.

    Everybody isn't complaining about the prices but about the gambling mechanics that have been implemented with the update. Before you could buy the skins outright if you didn't want to open lootboxes. Not anymore and that's what pisses people off.

    You can literally own 2 by playing the game. The other 22 have to be purchased. Look it up man. Thats the whole point of this outrage.

    True that it's an industry problem but the funny thing is, is that THIS is the revamped system. Before this event, these skins could be purchased trhough the store directly. That's what people are mad about. The gambling aspect of it all, instead of having the ouright option of buying what you want at the usual 18$ price tag.

    Nope but new event items are locked behind a gambling paywall of 24 loot boxes. One loot box costs 7$. if you want everything or even just one specific skin, you could be out of 154$ if you're out of luck. No more buying skins directly through the shop for this event. Yay! So essentially endorsing gambling.

    Like any other EA game in the end...

    It's not about receiving anything for free but about the fact that we cannot buy the skins outright, even at a higher pricepoint than other skins in the game since they are locked behind an rng loot box system.

    So we should just take it laying down? WTF dude. If there's no outrage then there is no chance for change of these bs tactics.

Many ppl on here have said and I include myself, I would've gladly spent 20-40$ on a skin or two if I knew what I was getting.

    Not gamechanging but certainly not the way it was before EA decided to really get going.

    It's not the skins but locking them behind the wonderful EA surprise mechanics. No way to get a skin you want directly, no you have to play the gambling game. So much fun!

    Respawn said it wants to earn the respect of it's playerbase upon release.

    Respawn is in EA's pocket.

    "Surprise mechanics" were introduced yesterday for the new event that leaves 92% of the event items behind a paywall that will set you back 154$ if you wish to own every item and also gives you no option of buying items directly in case you don't want to spend potentially 154$.

    Respawn lied.

    Playerbase p*ssed.

    Major bugs still not fixed.
