This Could Be Huge!
Disney Kills Microtransactions in Battlefield 2? EmptyThu May 31, 2018 10:16 am by RedKnight
This could be great news for Modern Warfare Gamers on the PS4/5 and xBox1.

While we wait for H-Hour... if it ever gets here... and with the new WW2 Battlefield V coming this Fall and with BF1 and CoD WW2 out now... both crap games in my opinion... at least we have some hope for a great new War Shooter.  If MW4 includes any Clan Support with Custom User Private Servers... MW4 will be pure GOLD!

Call of Duty: WWII review—The less things change…
Stripping out years of feature creep, but doesn't have anything to replace it.

Steven Strom - 11/8/2017, 2:00 PM


Call of Duty: WWII certainly has some interesting timing. It has the dubious duty of returning the landmark first-person series to its titular roots at a time when any game centered on fascism, nationalism, and especially Nazism …

Disappointing limitation for War mode
Disney Kills Microtransactions in Battlefield 2? EmptyWed Jun 14, 2017 9:18 am by RedKnight
This news from E3 is not good... but it might get better before game launch. If this doesn't get better (6 vs 6 for Clans?)... CoD WW2 won't be workable for larger online War Clans like us.  Time will tell.

Call of Duty: WWII reveals a disappointing limitation for War mode

If you were expecting big-team battles, you might be a little disappointed.

Maybe good news for old SoF and maybe CTU members about the new Call of Duty: WWII with possible Clan Support.

Just found this.  Call of Duty: WWII has a potential of real CLAN SUPPORT. See below...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare GAMEPLAY - IS IT GOOD?

Battlefield 1 looks like a BF4 remake.  I have lots of issues at present.  Maybe after BF1 is out for a few weeks... I could change my mind.  But I have to find at a new game for SoF that has good Clan Support and good Clan controllable Private Servers.  And EA/DICE seems to have left that world behind after BF3.  So... we'll see.

Cod Infinite Warfare has been taking a beating on …

Did Disney Tell EA to Remove Star Wars Battlefront 2 Microtransactions?
Disney Kills Microtransactions in Battlefield 2? 8515066067_f55c283230_o
By Jasmine Henry | Nov 17, 2017

EA has announced that it is temporarily removing all microtransactions from Star Wars Battlefront 2 following significant backlash against the game’s loot boxes. However, while some thought that EA’s decision was a direct response to the fan fury, it now seems that it was Disney who made the final call.

According to GamesBeat, EA CEO Andrew Wilson had a phone call with The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger yesterday. Then, just hours after this phone call took place, Star Wars Battlefront 2‘s microtransactions were nixed. GamesBeat‘s report does not explicitly state that Iger told Wilson to drop the microtransactions from the game, but that is certainly the implication.

Over the past few days, the conversation about Star Wars Battlefront 2‘s loot boxes has grown considerably. Things got heated when fans saw the high price for unlocking heroes, which led to EA reducing the hero unlock costs. Then, EA reduced and limited the credit rewards system meaning that unlocking content would still take players thousands of hours (or thousands of dollars) to access all content.

The final straw on the camel’s back though may have been the revelation that Star Wars Battlefront 2‘s loot boxes are under investigation by the Belgian gambling authority. Belgium’s Gambling Commission has suggested that EA could be subject to thousands of dollars worth of fines, or an outright ban of the game could be on the cards.

The Gambling Commission also said that it is looking at the way that the game’s loot boxes could impact minors and encourage children to spend a lot of money. Some Star Wars fans are reportedly sharing messages on social media telling others not to let their children interact with Star Wars Battlefront 2 or the Star Wars brand for fear of getting their children into gambling.

EA is a license holder for the Star Wars brand and has been allowed by Disney to make games based on its universe, but EA also has a duty to uphold the values of the sci-fi franchise. It’s understandable that Disney would step in to ensure that its brand is protected and that EA is making business decisions that do not tarnish the Star Wars name.

The brouhaha with the microtransactions does seem to have damaged the Star Wars brand, at least on the video game side of things. But with Star Wars: The Last Jedi releasing in theaters next month, Disney wants to keep the narrative surrounding Star Wars positive. So while it has not been officially confirmed that Disney intervened here, it would certainly make a lot of sense.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
