The "Most Downvoted Comment on Reddit" Award Goes to… EA

EA Now Have The Most Downvoted Reddit Post Of All Time Shannon Grixti

EA Now Have The Most Downvoted Reddit Post Of All Time Shannon Grixti

Yesterday, someone representing EA's community management team responded to the Reddit thread by thanking the community for the feedback and explaining that "the intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes". Based on what the studio has seen in the early access trial happening now for Xbox One and PC gamers, DICE thinks this will make earning these Heroes an achievement, but one that will be accessible (read: doable) by all players. Darth Vader and others that were priced at 60,000 credits have dropped all the way to 15,000, or about ten hours of playtime, for example.

EA's developers have received death threats for their part in the controversial Loot boxes from Star Wars Battlefront II.

IPhone X Face ID Fooled with a $150 Mask
Apple claims the chances of a random stranger being able to unlock an iPhone X which does not belong to them are a million to one. They then put 2D printouts of the user's eyes, upper cheekbones and lips over the mask and added a silicone nose for realism.

Emperor Palpatine, Leia Organa and Chewbacca are 10,000 credits to unlock, and Iden Versio, the all-new hero of Battlefront 2's single-player campaign, is 5,000 credits. In an official post, DICE executive producer John Wasilczyk writes "Listening, and providing choices in how you play, will always be our principle with Star Wars Battlefront II".

Star Wars Battlefront II isn't officially out until November 17, and yet it's already earning awards... However, according to Wasilczykt, "it's clear that more changes are needed". Despite being the main draw to a Star Wars game, EA has opted to lock these characters behind walls - either of progression or pay. Essentially making it the equivalent of a full-time job playing the game just to get close to unlocking. "We know some of our most passionate fans, including those in our subreddit, have voiced their opinions, and we hear you".

Brookfield Property makes $14B bid for mall owner GGP
Investors are a little more bearish on shares of Brookfield Property Partners L lately as shown by the uptick in short interest. If you are accessing this report on another website, it was stolen and reposted in violation of USA & worldwide copyright laws.

It's good news that they're already planning to adjust the rates as they go, but there's no guarantee they'll be much more reasonable than the roughly 40 hours of play now required to attain a single hero-all while not making any other in-game purchases to slow down the process. "We welcome the conversation", Wasilczyk adds. Stay tuned to our social channels for more info on the AMA, and our blog for continual updates on what we're seeing, hearing and adjusting in the game. This is far more than a cosmetic change; if you can pay to be Darth Vader, that's a huge advantage over the people playing as lowly rebel forces.

Let's start with the warm-hearted (and admittedly cheesy as hell) advertisement, which follows two Star Wars fans who grow up taking everything a little too seriously. In the year of aggressive microtransactions in the form of loot boxes by almost every major games publisher, EA made a decision to wade into the angry mob and issue a statement.

Jacoby Brissett Just Proved The NFL's Concussion Protocol Is A Joke
The Steelers' secondary gave up touchdown passes of 60 and 61 yards against Indianapolis after Haden left the game. And Roethlisberger reverted to his traditional form on the Steelers' final possession. "That's what he does".
