Electronic Arts has made their name in history, and it is now for the good reasons. After several users on Reddit voiced their complaints regarding microtransactions, a member of the EA Community Team posted the following…
“The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.
As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we’re looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily basis, and we’ll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via gameplay.
We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.
Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.”
After this comment was made,numerous Redditors downvoted the comment and quickly became the most downvoted comment in Reddit history with over 126K votes.
Of course, now that it has been 19 hours later, it seems like somebody has stepped in and it now has 6,906 downvotes.
