So to recap, we’ve had an internet-wide protest against EA and DICE’s decision to include microtransactions inside the latest Star Wars Battlefront 2, which includes some pay-to-win mechanics through the use of skill cards for your character and your chosen vehicle, as well as holding back player progression by forcing you to grind endlessly to craft the Epic cards that grant you extra abilities on the battlefield. There’s also some limits on offline challenges and how much money you earn from the single-player campaign, as well as a time limit on how many credits you can earn when replaying offline matches. And the most downvoted comment in internet history on Reddit. Blizzard poked fun at them.
Things… just get worse for EA after that point.
