No matter what EA does in the future, fans will never forget the incredibly controversial launch of Star Wars Battlefront II. The company has been under fire ever since the game’s initial launch. The controversy has sparked a huge conversation surrounding the ethics and legality of loot boxes. While some gamers see it as a form of gambling, the ESRB has officially stated they do not see it this way.
Three months after the game launched, players of Star Wars Battlefront II are still not happy about the current loot box system. One sentence from EA’s first response to the controversy will never be forgotten: “The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.” This is a ridiculous statement, as unlocking some of the useful things in the game is totally up to chance. These words will never be forgotten, especially now.
A brand new mod for Battlefront II immortalizes those infamous words forever. This mod will cause the words “pride and accomplishment” to be displayed on the sides of every loot box you earn, clearly meant as a symbolic middle finger to EA. So if you’ve been waiting to feel that wonderful sense of pride and accomplishment, now you can!
What do you think of this new mod? Do you think loot boxes will remain a staple in gaming after this serious backlash? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
