    I think that this guy summarises basically, all my doubts and concerns about the game.


    The hole "live service" thing is disturbing, Bioware should explain the business model as soon as possible.

      Saw this and thought about sharing it, I'm glad you did Rykroft. I can't agree with him more!

        Look at Battlefront, is amazing, but with the Loot boxes thing, they ruined it completely, beside the fact that we are crossing the line between a valid purchase and an illegal activity like gambling in a game with a lot of under-18 years old players....

        And now, forgive me for my honesty, but I have to say it.....

        I don't even know what to think or say about it, I know that the only way we can "fight" again this horrendous activity is by punish them with our wallets, like YongYea state in his video. But in that case, I don't want that Bioware suffer the consequences. I don't want that EA shut down Bioware, for god sake is the last thing I want to hear about. But if the game is not successful, then I'm afraid they will do it, they will close Bioware Edmonton.

        Sometimes i feel like this is a hostage situation, with Bioware studio as the hostage and EA as the terrorist.

        What could we do about it?..... well sorry, this time I will have to give in and pay for the game (is not like I don't want to either ...) even if I they introduce micro-transaction and loot boxes... :cry:

        When you buy up the competition or bankrupt the rest...you become the only game in town. Is this EA business model. Are you hungry? Well we can sell you portions of food instead of a full meal which you just paid for. We are the only restaurant in town, so get use to it. I'm concerned at this point.

        Micro transactions, loot boxes, season pass, dlc that was part of the orangial game, it feels like someone has their hands in my pocket.
