You don't have to buy loot boxes you know, you have a choice.

If people want to buy loot boxes then let them. I haven't and I love the game.

But they've said they're bringing loot boxes back. I guess they thought the feedback wasn't all that bad
I am tempted to buy this with my o2 topped up credits on PSN making the game half price at 12.49 , but even at that price I cannot quite bring myself to make the purchase.....plus I have the first one.....nothing new other than graphical and map changes....
Not a bad price. The campaign is pretty average, but enjoyable enough. I got bored of multiplayer after 10 hours. The progression system is slow and begins to feel like a grind very quickly.

I've spent at least 50 hours of playing and haven't spent any money on lootboxes. If you buy virtual money from real money then your a mug end of story. Theres also the campaign which is very underrated and surprising good.

The real problem of this game isn't the lootboxes or pay to win claims people who haven't even played the game are saying. The real problem is the lack of content. There needs to be more weapons to choose from and more maps. Theres like 4 or 5 different weapon types and only 2 are any good and only unlock after 300-500 kills which isn't good. Its a shame that the haters have most likely killed any plans of free dlc that this game was suppose to get instead they had to focus on the shitstorm which the haters have ruined for people who enjoy the core gameplay of this game.

How did you come to that conclusion? The game is damn good with fun gameplay which is what matters. Plenty of games have much worse predatory systems than this game such as GTA V but no one complains about that. If you don't want the game then stop spreading false information.
And the Micro Transactions are back next month. Go on people, buy it - feed EA's hunger for your money. Show them that you will accept a "pay to win" or "pay to unlock" system with all their future games.
It makes me sad that people are sticking up for this game. EA don't care about you, they only care about squeezing as much cash out of you as possible. The whole progression system was built around loot crates. People who say " well, you don't have to spend money", it's only because people protested so much they took them out. Otherwise you'd be getting killed by someone with a bigger wallet. Also, the campaign they lied to us about it. It's not at all what they said it would be. I did buy this game myself day one, only to play a star wars single player campaign. I'm not a hypocrite and I'm not telling people not to buy this game, it's your money. Just go into it with your eyes wide open, EA care only about money. Yes it's a business, but you've got to respect your customers, which sadly EA don't.

There are companies that are alot worse than EA. Take Two have been milking GTA V since 2013 turning the game into a free to play MMO where all of the best content is locked until you either grind and no life the game for weeks or pay shark cards and get the stuff straight away. Then you have Activision who are the most scummy companies out there where literally all their games are based on gambling. Look at Overwatch which people defend yet its essentially a lootbox simulator and also Destiny which exploits people's obsession with loot.

No, I'd say EA are on par with those companies. Even if you think EA aren't that bad as other companies, there practices are still wrong. Look at the new need for speed for example, using loot crates so you can upgrade your cars. EA have been doing for years through a more casual crowd, in fifa ultimate team. They now tried with star wars, a beloved franchise, and kicked microtransaction into overdrive and the gaming community weren't having it. It's only because Disney stepped in they removed microtransaction. I assume most people know this already because it made mainstream news. Remember, before people complained it took 40 hours just to unlock darth vader, which cost 15,000 points and you were earning just 150 points per match, regardless of your skill level. Sorry if this came across as a long rant, I just feel very strongly about this.

Although I know that in a recent ea statement about earnings they declared that due to them missing their projected profits by around $1 million , that they are introducing micro transactions in some form within the next couple of months , the irony is that they blamed the loss on the negative media around the micro transactions


I believe it was worse than that - they projected 8 million units sold, they only sold 7 million - at least in Q3 of last year. Don't worry though, EA are estimating $5.1bn in revenue for the coming year >.< A fair amount of this is from their Ultimate Team stuff from their sport franchises, however they are wanting to push that into more of their games :

"Like Battlefield or Battlefront, our Star Wars game, which are very similar in the depth of play - we can possibly add a similar mechanic to that. We spend a lot of time thinking about it. Not for tomorrow, but over the next couple of years you're going to see a lot more of that in our portfolio." - Blake Jorgensen
Great game I've unlocked everything just by playing.
Anybody out there able to compare how this is to the first Battlefront? I got it free from a mate & all the DLC was free too so have been playing it for past month & enjoying it but worried SWB2 is too similar as by the time I platinum the first I'll be fed up!

Watch a YouTube or two, do a VS comparison
You people defending this game are absolute idiots and are responsible for the awful state of gaming these days. You can blame EA all you want but ultimately its morons like you that are ruining it for the rest of us.

Blame gamers for eating it up. Companies like EA know most gamers are dumb spending money on lootboxes and other stupid crap. EA is a business so exploiting dumb people is what many businesses do. If we were going to ban anything that took advantage of the chemical in our brains then you wouldn't have any games left as all games use methods to give us a release of dopamine.If a person has no self control or common sense that they are getting exploited then I hope the scummy companies rinse their bank accounts dry to teach them a lesson.

Most games would kill for 8 million sales. Also all it means is EA won't greenlight another Star Wars game until they have made a good enough profit on BF2 and milk the game even longer. Last time I checked 8 million was alot for a game.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Where to start...

Have you played Overwatch? It's the exact opposite of a lootbox simulator. Lootboxes in Overwatch are cosmetic. Yes you can pay for lootboxes but they offer absolutely no advantage in game. Blizzard have released free character after free character. New free play modes. Continue to support and expand the game. Blizzard are the shining example of a developer and you are frankly talking out of your rear end here.

EA designed BF2 from the ground up to be played through loot boxes. Initially, at Beta stage it was to be 50 hours play time to unlock each hero. The reason you now enjoy the game is because of the outcry. EA are now reintroducing the mechanisms they turned off. I bet in 2 or 3 months time you'll be crying like a little baby about all the grind / timers/ microtransactions.

GTA 5 is a single player game with a multiplayer bolt-on. No comparison.

Destiny 2 is a horror show of a game. Completely agree.

Well what about people with gambling addictions? Preying on the vunreable is wrong. You could use that with any argument. Like loan companies preying on people with low incomes. People can always been taken advantage of, but is it moral thing to do? You can't just push the blame onto the consumer, these companies do have responsibility. Plus, Children do play a lot of there games who maybe don't even realise they're beening taken advantage of and parents aren't always full educated about the dangers of ingame gambling. It's not as black and white as you're making it out to be.

If you have an addiction then thats like I said before which is self control. How hard is it to remove the credit card details from the damn system? If its really hard for them then they obviously need someone else to supervise their credit card and monitor or restrict their purchases. As for your argument of children they shouldn't even be playing games like GTA and COD in the first place so thats a case of bad parenting. The problem there is parents shoving their kids away and instead of doing what a damn parent should be doing which is monitoring their children they are instead doing who knows what while their kids spending their money without even knowing. It really is as black and white as I'm making out. Dumb people are dumb and get what they deserve.

I was talking about ea games when I mentioned children, mainly fifa. And a kid saying "mum/dad can I have ten pound to buy some fifa points". Sometimes parents are just plain busy, they work, they come home they have to cook dinner, there single parents etc "hey son/daughter you've been good this week, course you can have ten pound for some fifa points." Obviously there are some extreme cases, where kids steal there parents credit cards and spend hundreds or even thousands. And your argument for cod, I remember playing doom 64 and goldeneye when I was a kid and I'm not some psycho killer. There's no link between violence and video games, but that's for another debate. I just think you show a lack of empathy towards other people. Your not going to agree with me, but I just think you're closed minded.

I've opened up a can of worms here, haven't I? haha. I'm just saying that there needs to be more transparency in loot boxes, like in China were they show you the actual odds. Plus fifa ultimate team it just an add on. They still have career mode, couch play, and even story mode now. I'm just worried about triple aaa publishers, building there games solely around microtransactions, in the future. Every games has to be some online mmo games as service and they'll stop making good singular player experiences. I just wish someone else had the star wars license or it was shared so we could get a good variety of games. EA even cancelled a single player star wars game because they knew people would move after they'd finished it.

Haha yep you did
But I don't think you should worry. There will always be single player games as there should be enough demand to make them. To me personally I want a game that has both a good single player and multiplayer modes.
