for the people who havent googled why the game is bad, I'm copying this comment i made a couple of weeks ago and shortened it a little to keep the relevant details about how it's pay to win and why no person should ever pay money for a game that has $5000 dlc or a free to play/pay to win model.

As it seems so many have no idea that this is a game that isn't worth using the disc as a coaster.

"It's pay to win in the sense that there is a micro-transaction/9 month real time grind necessary to unlock everything thats playable, I dont think any game is worth playing without a break for 9 months straight, which leaves gambling for content to unlock or paying for the (promised return of) microtransaction funded gambling for more crates with a chance to win with the content you desire.

Now crates aren't always the worst thing in the history of the world - overwatch for example I have played that also, there are loot crates, you get skins and visual graphic changes, these don't affect gameplay at all.
Battlefront 2, you get things that make the game unbalanced, characters that other players can't afford for example that add different mechanics into the game i.e. you are playing as a different class unavailable to others and it makes an impact on the battle, it's an advantage (or sometimes disadvantage in some players cases I have seen) that isn't available to others without a grievous amount of time and soon again money put into the game, or being very lucking with gambling is another option.

This is why i consider the game a pay to win format, or another way to look at it is the dlc costs $5000 and without it you're at a disadvantage. or there's a paywall to unlock all the content in game.

Going back to the overwatch example again, all of the unlocks in this game are done by lootboxes, it's all random, nothing has an advantage, nothing is prettier or more coveted purely because it requires a specific feat performed to be unlocked, everyone has the same chances so the option to buy stuff for that ultimately doesnt affect the game play.
Back to battlefront; you put money in, you get stronger things to use in game, it affects the combat and mechanics, it divides the player base into those who have played it vs those who played for long enough to be lucky to get better things, or those who threw money blindly at EA until they randomly gambled enough to get the thing they wanted to get an advantage in the game.

Why is this cold?
I would like to know too! Can't see it anywhere cheaper
ITS A TRAP!
Don't act like you don't know, it's the same reason people have been voting BF2 deals cold for a while now.

I have 2 consoles I am not fan any of them . I think xbox guys vote it cold but this is digital copy and very good price
People aren't voting on the deal because of the price it is cause they are anti this game.... has been posted many times before and got the same results

Hahaha wow what a comeback Why would I need to do research if I've never posted a deal? You absolute moron. What I said still stands you imbecile, do a tiny search before you post the same trash everyone else has already posted, also before saying "can't find it cheaper anywhere else" do a little search as you can't find it cheaper because you haven't looked oh dear too much stupid for one day my friend well done

Why is this cold?


Because it’s a Free To Play game that costs £29.99.
EA do to gaming what Fred & Rose West did for parenting. I wouldn't play if it was free.

My point being you have a lot to criticise who has never contributed to this site - scrounger. This site can do without someone like you.

I did search and couldn't see anything obvious. Would you like to prove me wrong and CONTRIBUTE a deal for once?
I concur with all the hostility towards the financial elements of a game. However, I have a question. As a single player, never likely to go online game, is it worth buying at some point?

Switched off for now, being the important part. They will be brought back at some point, no doubt after enough people have given in.

Or enough idiots bought it for Christmas
I’m being optimistic and I really don’t believe they’ll bring them back

Not for £30. The campaign isn't bad but I wouldn't say it's good either. At £10-15 it's worth a go.

£5 for single player campaign maybe, it's not long, I sitll wouldnt get it unless you could get it as a standalone piece of software or as long as the money didn't go to supporting EA it would in theory be fine

their return has been promised, them changing how they work hasn't technically been promised at all but i assume they will tweak it, although they actually already changed the microtransactions once already to make things cost less, but they also decreased the drop rates the exact same amount to it cancelled out as though they had done exactly nothing, which is basically how they think of their customers.

Posting deals isn't the only way to contribute to the site, voting does make a difference for example, commenting helpfully to make others aware of products or faults along the lines of "this is only 90% off because they all break after a week of using them read the reviews on amazon"
But finding actual deals I think is pretty hard to do honestly, I very rarely stumble across something online that is below retail and hasn't already been posted online by someone who checked their emails before me and got the sale alert so I've rarely posted any actual deals because I know things would go cold or just be a repost, or often already listed in a multipost for site sales, such as cdkeys, psn, xbox live/deals with gold etc.

What isn't contributing to the site though are comments where one person just insults another, of when people reply to those comments and give them attention for what is basically being a bully for no real reason.

I think at any point in life when someone doesn't know something the best thing someone can do is explain it to them and the worst woudl be to yell at them or insult them, with a near infinite amount of knowledge how can anyone posess it all?

I paid £39.99, yes single player campaign is worth that never mind £29.99
It's not just the micro transactions that are the sole reason for the hate.
It's the gotcha style of upgrade for all troopers vehicles and heroes. If you love playing as a particular class there are absolutely no guarantees that when you finally earn enough credits to open a lootbox that it would be for a class you like.

Then there's a chance for duplicates so trying to level up the skills you do have become a crapshoot as well.
There's no natural progression to the multiplayer, a new player could be really lucky and have 40% more armour than you, or there health Regen is 10% quicker than yours.

When will you get those skills? Who knows? Open a lootbox and take a gamble.

For you to be at a disadvanage at this game a number of things need to come into play. The player you are going up against needs to be skilled and have got better gear and not be on your team. A lower skilled player with better gear will still have no advantage over a player who has learned the game and who is proficient at it. Players are not willing to put the time and effort into games these days to learn them and get skilled. They want everything unlocked within a few weeks. Games have and never will be level playing fields. Those willing to put time and effort in will always be at advantage.

I don't think a sense of superiority over a player's ability to game justifies making the game pay to win at all, I still don't want to play a game where every X amount of games I will come across someone who has paid to win, or who has played less than myself but had greater luck gambling and as a result affects the outcome of game play.

I like multiplayer games where the progression curve isn't determined by gambling and microtransactions, i.e. a fair playing field, it doesn't matter if it's a rare occurrence where you actually meet someone who bought their way to success, the fact it can happen at all just taints the entire experience, like every time you do win a game where someone has vader one could think "lol pay2win noob" and every time you don't "this is such bull, they just bought the content I worked for anyway" (or they had better luck gambling whichever way you want to look at it)

Consider a person new to the game who hasn't played before, or even played the first, or maybe not even other shooters, in theory they would not be as successful as other players, they haven't developed the skill the same, which is how all games work, it's a learning process, it's not a huge deterrent to stop trying.
In this game however where new players are concerned skill means nothing, every other person in the game could have just bought their way to gear, or gambled, there is no curve of progression with EA, just money in exchange for winning, what's the point in trying as a new player when every other bad player can just buy their way to winning?
I am sure someone would argue that's just an extra challenge, but if you care that much about a challenge in gameplay I would argue games like super meat boy would be a better investment for money, it has a hard progression curve for new players and takes time to develop the skills to beat the level, but you don't get to pay extra money for gear or characters that make it easier to beat the game.

In summary because of the loot crate system in battlefront 2 dropping items that effect the gameplay, it's basically a scam you are paying into as soon as you buy the game, even if you just get it for the story, it's the equivalent of being at the bottom of a pyramid scheme.
The people voting this cold are the same people who will tell others not to purchase it but at the same time go out and buy Destiny 2 or Call of Duty WWII with all of their microtransactions and lootboxes, currently this game is not pay to win and everything has been turned off.....not like the other games, the best advice I can give is to play the hell out of this game in case they do switch back on the purchasing of lootboxes.

You can't purchase lootboxes therefore at this very moment the game isn't pay to win, enjoy your games.

Finally someone who talks sense 🏻
I think it’s worth it at £29, I’m having a great time with my lad and nephew, within 2 days I have all but 4 characters unlocked and the in game credits build up quite quickly with playing. I’ve spent and played on far worse, each to their own I suppose.
