Right now I just feel like people will never even try this game.
I mean, the hate about the heroes is completely understandable, but right now I just feel like people will just hate the game for the skae of it.
The lootbox system isn’t perfect.
But does it deserve that much hate ? They even said that the matchmaking take into account what is the level of your cards ( and the time you have played )to match you with player with similar levels.
I just think that people never wanted to support the game on the long term.
They said that every incoming DLC were free. Of course they would need money in order to keep add content for the game.
This kind of game is made so that the people that only play this game will never have to pay anything, but the players that play this game occasionally will be incited to do some purchases.
If it’s too easy to get everything it will just get boring.
Even Overwatch and R6 work this way (on R6 you need more than 15 hours to unlock one character for free, and there is a lot of cosmetics). Overwatch even add skins for a limited amount of time.
Yes, in SW you can unlock things that will make your character better, but the matchmaking take this into account (we can’t say if it really works if no one play it) and this game is so casual friendly it won’t feel that terrible with the amount of people in every game (it would have been way different if it was like Overwatch or R6).
In the end, I just think people wanted free content without doing anything. It never how it works.
My main problem with the game right now is the lack of prequel content and the fact that we still don’t know how many credits will cost DLC heroes. That’s why I will wait but I won’t hate the game like most people do. Some even send death threats.
I liked the fact that I could support Evolve because I enjoyed their game, and I showed this by buying extra stuff. It may works the same with SW but time will tell.
Edit : My point is that the game can benefit from a lot of improvements regarding the lootbox system. But people need to understand that there can’t be any free content if you want the game to have support. Obviously Overwatch and R6 are better, but I don’t think this game deserve that much hate.
