Which IIRC they took purples out because of gamer complaints!
Edit: P.S are they official drop rates, would love a link if you have it!
I’m not sitting here defending Lootcrates though, I’m saying that the need to use lootcrates to enjoy the gameplay is overstated by the gaming community.
This isn’t a description of microtransactions impeding on gameplay, it’s a description of a microtransaction system regardless of gameplay.
Gameplay is what you actually do to play the game. The closest that it comes is by creating a possible discrepancy between card levels of players however there are two reasons why I feel very relaxed about this personally and wouldn’t ever say it is an “impedence”.
- The devs have said they take cards into account for matchmaking, AFAIK
- All games that have progression have this problem, whether you progress by achievements, or playtime, or this system. Some people have their gameplay “impeded”. In fact, and like I say I’m not defending lootboxes because they are shit, but one consequence of this system is that actually you are LESS likely to meet disparity in game thanks to the random nature of upgrades given unless you spend real money to upgrade artificially quickly.
Different time, different scope, different realities of budgets involved. I imagine.
Cynics, the lot of you
I’ve played the campaign and about a dozen starfighter mode matches. I’ve played a leisurely 10 hours of this game, and I have enough credits to unlock Darth Vader. Now to get skilled enough that I can gain enough battle points in a match to even get to use Darth Vader!
Edit: Edit: P.p.p.s Totally kidding by the way, will unlock Leia before Vader. Syke.
