I just bought the game.  Waiting for the dL to finish.   Talked to a coworker who said that the single player campaign can give you enough to get any hero you want and felt the anti hype was bs.  He too was blown away by the improvements over bf1, particularly the star fighting part, which seems great, according to slim.  Iím stoked for the thanksgiving holiday time to dive in.

I'm glad they reacted like that, but it's just temporary, so they can sell more copies now with good press, make their shareholders happy, and then re-implement it later once the furor has died down... i'm sure they will still be able to fund plenty of additional content so don't worry about that.  however, i will NOT buy it until they announce how they will move forward.

their stock has been dropping today i think as much as 5% at some points
ya know, i've known people that have been boycotting EA since Battelfield 3. Thats like 7 years ago.
The reality is that EA IS the industry, or at least a massive share of it.
They knew full well they were testing the market to see how much they could push things.
They wouldn't have chosen to do this with their highest profile game otherwise.

From what i've heard it was actually Disney that called up and put major pressure  on EA threatining to pull their liscense b/c it was causing so much neg. publicity for the upcoming movie.
The irony is that Disney / Lucasflim are the real ones to blame for the way the micro sytem was forced to be implemented.
From all accounts they are so tight about every detail released related to S Wars that they dont want the massive amount of cosmetic customization that is acceptably monetized in other games.

thankfully i'm just someone that likes Star Wars and dope games, so for now i'm the luckiest person in the world i guess.

On my way to the (new) Garden for the first of two Dead and Co shows. Hoping for some tempo...

 :beers:
wife and I will be raging the couch. 

just like we did when the blackhawks hoisted the cup in the (new) Garden.

are you going with the psychological anthropologist?

My wife was at that game.

No, birdman didn't seem interested.

As for the tempo comment, I know there will be tempo. I'm looking for some TEMPO. I realize it is a lost cause...

There will be a tempo - it just won't be "fast"

Just like there is always "weather" it's just not always good or bad.

yeah TBH the whole situation though is overblown clickbait and reddit trollers that havent even played the game.
i can understand someone wanting to stand on principle and not play a game with micros, but in this case they really werent all people cracked them up to be,
if you didnt know about them you would absolutely never notice the difference in game.
ive ranked up without micros enough in three days  to be able to play against any level of progression.

...and  i dunno, maybe its cause ive been playing games with micros for 10 years now... i mean mmos have been doing them forever, but i see the current EA situation as mostly badwagoning hate.
I don't love EA, but really this was just the highest profile example of what is going on industry wide with ALL publishers of major games.
We all knew this was a calculated risk on Eas part , almost purposefully to test the market.
Obviously they failed this time, but in all reality gamers don't know what they want and that's the real issue.
5 or so years ago all i ever saw were complaints from aging gamers that said they didnt have enough time to keep up with grinds in multiplayer games. SO then companies started to sell them shortcuts, IE time= $.... but then : " OMG my dear principles!!" how can you sell progress?" - it's compltely hypocritical.
Not to mention 'catch up' micros, which are the exact same thing just delayed from launch, have been in almost every major multiplayer game over the last 5 years.


regardless, if you want to skip a game b/c of micros soley to make a moral point, fine, but 100% do not skip battlefront 2 b/c you think they will affect your enjoyment of the game. From someone that has actually played the game unlike the majority of haters out there i can tell you it won't.
