i hate reddits format so much.   what was the comment?   i cick the link and it takes me to talking about the comment but not the comment itself.  when i try to click on the headline at the top,  it takes me to the same page..

can you just paste the link to what they said?

edit:  must be its mobile cause i went on my pc and managed to read it lol   ea up to its usual micro transaction bs

edit2: it should also be noted its no longer at 8k.. the number is much higher..

I linked to the discussion of the post getting downvotes.

Here's a direct link to the post for anyone else: EACommunityTeam comments on Seriously? I paid 80$ to have Vader locked?

at this pace its pretty safe to say itll top 100k

Lol, they deserve all of this. Battlefront 2 is significantly iced up thanks to them and they deserve all the shame that's being flung at them.

115k downvotes..

im almost expecting to go to sleep and wake up to 200k.

hopefully it will. and hopefully this loot box and microtransaction thing effects reviews big time. if it reviews low, and has all this controversy around it then it certainly can affect its sales.

202k :o

I guess I don't really understand what's going on.

Or if I do understand, I am a little surprised at how much negativity there is.

The beta state of the game was the most pay to win battleship I've ever seen in a $60 game, by a long long long way. And they've gone some way to fix it but it's nowhere near enough, as you can see by people's reactions to this.

Battlefront 2 gonna have the biggest drop of a sequel this gen?

rofl right now it has more down votes then the next top 57 combined..  and since its that far down the list, it adds another to that combined total ever 2k.  infact its gone from 54 to 57 in the last 5 minutes.

i hope this manages to top the rest of the entire list combined.. lol (for ref. thats -351399)

The EA comment imo isn't too bad but it's given people an outlet to express their dislike of the situation.

I didn't downvote it but it would be awesome if publishers scaled back their microtransaction plans.



This post could end up having more downvotes than the most upvoted post has upvotes.

Looks like it will.

344,000 downvotes holy wow.  :o

So is the thing like boxes of loot, where in order to get something you have to play for 40 hours to get it?
