Star Wars Battlefront II has managed to beat a new record tMore than two years since its premiere, but not exactly one of the good ones. Specifically, it has to do with the tremendous controversy originated in its launch with the abuse of the loot boxes and the attempt of justification that one of the spokesmen of EA published in Reddit, getting the Guinness record to the comment with the most negative votes of the entire portal.
At this point it is not surprising that there is a Guinness record on Reddit, nor that the company tried to justify the loot boxes of Star Wars Battlefront II, although later they had to retract by public pressure. Currently, the communiqué of the EA community manager in Reddit has 667,824 negative votes, but reached 683,000, which is recorded in the record.
"The intention is to provide players with a sense of pride and achievement to unlock different heroes," said EA at the time. «As for the cost, we select the initial values based on the data of the open beta and other adjustments made to the milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we observe the average credit gain rates per player daily, and we will make constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding and, of course, attainable throughout the game. »
This is the curious DOOM bone vodka
«We appreciate the sincere comments and passion that the community has put around the current issues here at Reddit, our forums and in numerous social media. Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community comments and update everyone as soon as possible. often as we can «.
We already know the end of the story, EA was forced to readjust the operation of its loot boxes before the wave of criticism and Star Wars Battlefront II failed to succeed as expected by the company. To the point that it is not considered doing another sequel.
