Good to see this alongside the other videos like sterlings and yong yea. They're bang on the money when it comes to the sleezy salesman called Activision.

f*** micro transactions and f*** Activision.

He really seems heartbroken and disappointed, I’ve never really seen him like that before, he wraps everything into jokes.

This time you could see that he’s genuinely angry.

I wonder will the a******s at activision address all the backlash or will they just ignore and ride on that money train. Likely the latter...

Most definitely the latter, especially seeing as there are people rejoicing they can look up wumpa coins in the PSN...

The thing I don't get is, they are breaking the reward cycle...

You play, you get coins, you can buy new stuff to play with, you earn more coins etc.

If you don't want to play the game, why invest real money?

It's grindy as hell, by design to cash in on lazy people and/or people with little time, but like I said, if you use money to quick unlock everything, you don't get rewarded for the time you play so you will play less... but if you play less, what good is it to unlock all the stuff?

And if the game isn't fun to you because of the grind, rather drop it than shoving cash up Activision Ass... THEY DON'T NEED IT.

But how else will they afford investments in MTX advancements?

And all those useless YouTube pricks earn money off you ignorant folk by pretending to be outraged. Without stuff to fake cry over they’d have to get actual jobs.

They're not faking it. I'm a YouTuber and I am absolutely outraged for these MTX. And yes, I do have a job as well.

Getting upset at Youtubers for making money is no different than getting upset at actors or artists or musicians. It's just plain stupid.
