Let's not forget a significant portion of EA Battlefront consumers: parents who just want to buy the latest Star Wars thing for their kids. Here's a campaign to convince them not to buy the game.

When I see this on Facebook later I'll know who to blame

This whole damn thing is blowing up out of control. I fucking love it.

Damn this pent up frustration of years of DLC has built up to this moment.

This infographic is a hot mess. Nobody is going to read this garbage.

You should put #***CHILDREN*** in massive, bold font, because #***CHILDREN*** are totally being preyed upon and nothing gets people more outraged than seeing #***CHILDREN*** being victims so using #***CHILDREN*** as your focal point will #***CHILDREN*** people into #***CHILDREN*** the #***CHILDREN*** #***CHILDREN*** with #***CHILDREN*** while at the same time #***CHILDREN*** episcopalian demonstrative vignette #***CHILDREN*** as was the style at the time.

This didn't even mention EA. It's blaming Disney Edit: good point about Disney not liking bad publicity and this getting them to help, although I'm still not a fan of the part that says "Disney is releasing their newest Star Wars product" because Disney is not releasing anything and the product didn't belong to them. Sure, the franchise and the names and characters, etc belong to them, but the game is not their product. But I do get what this is going for, and I think it's smart

Looks like something straight out of 4chan.

Are they promoting gambling to children in a game rated "Teen"?

So, whats the difference between these crates, and other similar crates in games, like in Rocket League for example?

I have a feeling this message could be turned around and used as another anti-gaming hit piece. Do media outlets still have it out for video games?

It's so hardcore cringe-inducing it just may save millions of hard earned dollars.

I'ts not *always* that simple. I am a father of two cute boys (7 and 10) and they're waiting for BF2 release since it was announced. I mean it's like Episode I-VII for them: pure joy, despite EI, EII and EIII being pure crap. I am perfectly aware that I should boycott EA and refund the game but at the same time I simply can't do that to my kids. They "worked" hard to earn this game (as well as other little things). Maximum grades at school, excellent behaviour, and much more over the past months. They earned the right to play it. I had a talk with them about ingame loot crates and microtransactions but this is nothing new to them. Coming from mobile games they are perfectly aware that "unfair" is a very common component of (almost) all games these days. They accept it and try to get the most fun without spending additional money. Not a single cent. They never ask me to buy gems, energy, chests, power-ups or similar "P2W" things. They don't even ask cosmetics, never. I feel I am betraying you guys because I'd like to be 100% "clean" and send a huge fuck *you to* EA. But I know that buying BF2 I wont be doing that. **This is how I am trying to introduce some damage control:** I purchased 1 XboxOne copy of the game for my kids and I paid it €44 on a 3^rd party store instead of €69 on the EA store. I will NOT buy my personal PC copy and that's another saved €59. In the end, EA is losing 65% profit from my family (€44 instead of €128). At the same time, EA wont get a single cent from us for additional stuff. Either they change their business model or we stick to the initial €44 and that's it. I am not changing the world but at least I'm trying to reduce the damage.

Buying pokémon cards is gambling too?

The funny thing is that EA has been taking peoples money for years with the Madden franchise being the same thing every year with false "improvements". Don't know why people still buy their garbage games.

Or just say Star Wars is full of satanic and demonic evils and shit
