    I dunno dude, that's kind of like making fun of someone for buying drinks at a bar that's gonna go out of business. People buy this shit for the same reason hoarders pile up products they're never going to use: satisfaction in the immediate now. A week later, they're just looking forward to the next acquisition, and the next, etc.

    I personally bought all kinds of shit in Warframe, but was fully aware that this was technically a waste of money and degenerate behavior, and had no issue walking away from the game (and my accumulated digital hats, scarves, magic medallions, and paint jobs) forever once it wore out its welcome.

    Loot boxes are a bit of a different animal than just buying shit from a cash shop, though. They're gambling of the worst kind, and very addictive to people who are prone to gambling (AKA terrible at mathematics).

    I might see it that way if Valve decided to push out Team Fortress 3 after a decade of TF2, but Overwatch was only released three years ago and it was promoted as a 'sustainable' e-sports game. Maybe Overwatch 2 will be designed in such a way as to allow for the continuation of Overwatch but... who knows.

    I'm not sure what to think anymore as someone who plays a gacha game but has never spent a cent on it. I guess some games are just less abusive about it.

    On both the mental and emotional levels, three years feels like about half a lifetime to Millennials.

    A retard planning to D1P Borderlands 3 on the Epic store thinks he is in any position to judge other people's purchases.

    Blizzard is done for. They can't create anything anymore, only milk the existing franchises for a little longer.
