Default Is Battlefront 2 a form of gambling?

http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/16/tech...ing/index.html

The Belgians seem to thinks so.

I had high hopes for this game, but I will not support a platform that relies on microtransactions to rip gamers off. $60 up front is enough to be able to enjoy the full game. Expansion packs and downloadable content, thatís all you should have to pay extra for.

Won't be getting this game. Couldn't stand the first one and it doesn't seem like this one is much better.

From what I've seen and heard, the gameplay is extraordinary. But the ability to rapidly grow just by paying ruined it for most players.

Ya the pay to win progression through loot crates sucks big time but the game itself is really fun. The vehicle controls are really tight. The Starfighter mode is a blast. On PC at least it's one of the best looking and sounding games I've played.

Game is a lot better now. They removed all the MTX and loot crates. All of the progression is now based on time played and skill. They are only going to do MTX for cosmetics starting in April.

If you didn't give the game a try before because of the MTX or progression system you should pick it up now, it's really fun to play.
