  1. Interesting. EA could actually be changing. I probably still won't play their games, but I might give them at least a look now.
  2. Simple? No. Is it still substantially the same game? Seems like it. I don't buy EA games anymore. The last game I played was Battlefield 3.
  3. No season pass this time then? Anyway, I didn't think they would care about fracturing the player base seeing as this is what they did for their Battlefield games as well. They just reskin and release a new game to repopulate their the player base. Rinse and repeat.
  4. They will just make "expansions" instead. You can't complain if the expansion is required to play in the first place and they just need to maintain the playerbase until they release their next rehash.
  5. Repeating my post from before. As far as lootboxes go, I think the way Blizzard does it with Overwatch is great actually. 1. Its just cosmetic. 2. Its possible to use in game means to obtain it. You don't need to pay. 3. Its not completely RNG. You can use ingame gold to purchase if you can't get it through boxes. 4. They aren't releasing it as DLC, although I am also supportive of cosmetic DLC. 5. They are still updating the base game with content. This is in contrast to say, Rocket League, where you need to pay for a key to open RNG crates for cosmetics and they also have DLC that aren't purely cosmetic. I think its fair still, just annoying. Dirty Bomb might be F2P, but I'd much rather they went the Overwatch route than that shit system.
  6. Shrug. Jordan can be the benchmark. I just need a frame of reference. My point being, not as good as Jordan overrated reads differently from plain overrated. It can mean many other things basically.
  7. Yes, but lacking a benchmark to compare to. Something tangible. I'm probably a minority in this, but I like to have a common reference point when making a comparison. This isn't the first time that I've complained about this kind of stuff, never got much of a response.

Besides, its EA. They are already releasing the same games every year with minor changes. I don't know what anyone expects of them.
  9. I'm sorry. I was under the impression because you were saying Curry's defense put him over LeBron as the most skilled player or something to that effect so I made the assumption. Its been some time since so I don't remember details. Anyway, that's just it. I'd like to repeat that simply saying someone is over/under rated is not productive. We really need to add a benchmark when using it or it will lead to confusion. E.g. Maybe LeBron isn't a consensus best active player, but can we all agree that he is still top five?
  10. I don't think many people will argue that he isn't the best player currently, even if some might quibble over the definition of "best" and/or his effort level in regular season games, but being over/under rated is relative and is very easy to talk pass each other. Anyway, I don't think anyone on this board thinks he isn't a great player other than MC, so I'm not sure what you're on about.
  11. It's a conspiracy marketing scheme. On that note, while I don't agree with Mother Cocanuts regarding LeBron, I do think the MVP is basically a pageant. It's all about who looks best. Also, LeBron might still be the best player, but again, it isn't about who is best and even if it were, I expect him to more or less coast through the regular season and not give his maximum effort until the playoffs, so he wouldn't be there in terms of results either.
  12. I just want to say that most of us have read plenty of Christopher Tolkien fanfiction.
  13. Early access doesn't really mean an incomplete game. Its often just a shield for developers and fans to defend the game from bugs and balance issues, using "its still in development" as an excuse. As far as I know, Dirty Bomb is still in "beta" despite being out and selling DLC and other assorted cash items for a couple of years. Or Warframe being in beta for five years and counting, plus console releases. Granted, they aren't early access games, but I'm sure that is only because Warframe started before Steam early access and Dirty Bomb is free to play. PUBG will probably be going the same route, releasing skins while and being in "beta" until the game's death.
  14. Having seen his game streams, I can assure you that that even if he does nothing but play games for the next decade, he will probably still be closer to being a great author than a pro gamer. He could aspire to be a successful game streamer I guess. You don't actually have to be good at playing games to be popular while you absolutely need to if you want to be a pro gamer.
  15. Yeah, that was pretty bullshit. I understand that it is hard to call games, but changing stuff retrospectively like this is inexcusable. Can't even dream up an excuse for the refs.
