I do, and still don't consider it worth the money, but I still like getting them as a gameplay reward, and I'm glad others like them since it means the game remains consistently updated with no payments for me

lootboxes with cosmetic stuff only allows people who want to support the devs to spend more money and actually getting something from it
it's a morally justifiable way to give the customer a choice how much he wants to spend on your product
But how about just allowing you to buy the accessories directly instead? This "buy a chance to get some virtual stuff" is bullshit.
I don't know about AAA games but all the other games I played that had loot boxes (which were only valve games) had the option to buy cosmetic items directly
Lootboxes mainly exist there for the small chance of getting an unusual/legendary item which at least in TF2 aren't sold by valve themselves
I mean, they do give you the option to do that. One of the rewards from loot boxes in Overwatch are coins, and you can sell any duplicate rewards for coins. Each cosmetic item has a coin price tag that you can outright purchase when you have enough. Alternatively, I'm pretty sure you can spend a couple of bucks and buy coins themselves if you have a few skins in particular you want.
This way people can get cosmetics without having to spend money if they don't want to.
Except accessories and cosmetics are part of the game and for a huge amount of gamers are part of the enjoyment of the game.
you still get a lootbox every time you level up, I've never spent anything on lootboxes in overwatch because i dont feel the need to. Theres also three weekly boxes you can get from winning matches.
But they aren't necessary. You still get the full game for the money you pay. In star wars characters that you can play with are locked behind pay walls or bigger grinds than most would put into the game
It still fucking matters. It's the same predatory "get rich faster" scheme that ACTIVISION Blizzard is pulling. But hey, go ahead and be so blinded by blizzard fanboyism that you'll excuse and forgive them for every transgression they pull, like popularizing lootboxxes in AAA games in the first place.
I'm definitely not a blizzard fanboy, I've never played overwatch and I honestly can't remember the last blizzard game I did play I can just tell the difference between cosmetics and necessities
If you really want someone to blame, its valve for their whole "lootbox" based economy, but their system works well enough and it's just for cosmetics.
The difference is that Valve's game is free to download and play, and Overwatch, Battlefront 2, Shadow of War and the new Need for Speed (that also wanted to do this, thanks EA) are premium AAA $60 games. Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2 can be played for absolutely 0 dollars and the boxes are the ONLY source of revenue for those games.
And no, you can very literally, directly, and observably blame ACTIVISION Blizzard directly for instigating and popularizing the lootboxes, as the number of premium games with the system DRASTICALLY shot up into the skies after the release and success of Overwatch, compared to EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. PRIOR.
Oh I must have missed the part where I got csgo for free
Will admit oversight on my part that I forgot even existed. Do not condone the use of lootboxes in that game either, just like I don't with OW.
CoD has been releasing games with loot boxes to get special variants of guns for a few years now, they beat OW to the punch

>not the same to a boy as it is to a girl
>might create someone incapable of maintaining healthy relationships
I understand why you might misinterpret my point, that's fine. Like I said, neither scenario is 'right', but it's not the same. I said 'might', because its not as probable as the crippling self esteem issues that are likely to develop in young girl in the same scenario. It's also a bit more based on the boy himself & his environment. His potential 'inability to maintain healthy relationships' isn't the sole responsibility of the woman he slept with, she's just a stone down a development path - a stone that many other females, even some his own age, could occupy.
It's a path of decisions & events. A young boy who sleeps with his teacher might think 'This is great, I'm like Attila the Hun. I'm the man!'. If this effects how others view him, his early adolescent development MAY distort his view of relationships. This is all a possibility, not a guarantee. A guy who goes through highschool thinking 'I'm Attila the Hun' and fucking everything that walks can still mature quite easily. It's not a struggle for a boy, it's not a hindrance. It's sexual gluttony. It's his biological instinct unleashed.
Contrast that with a young girl; let's even say that the adult male she sleeps with is highly attractive, successful, kind, charismatic. The perfect man. The pure, fundamental structure of human sexuality; males often dominant, and females often submissive immediately thrusts the situation into a bad place. It's all about the environment, and the way a girls brain works. She's bound to associate her worth with his approval; the fact that this Adonis of a man wants her makes her special. It breeds codependency, and if anything goes wrong she'd blame herself. Couple that with the likelihood of ostracization from her peers, and you've got yourself some serious future depression.
A sexually experienced woman ushering a young boy into having sex is much different than some fat old disgusting pig male teacher taking advantage of a young teenaged girl.
Why are you assuming that all male teachers would be fat and old? I had some REALLY hot male teachers in high school that I would've banged if I had had the chance. Therefore, it is the same. Teens are horny, and would jump at the chance to fuck an experienced adult/teacher, if the teacher was attractive.
Every time I read a story about a man fucking his students, it's never the stud, it's those teachers that students spread rumors that he's a kid fucker. Whereas every time I've seen a woman getting charged, it's the 20 something woman who every boy in the school wanted to fuck anyway. There may be exceptions, but these are the cares I see.
“THIS IS HOW IT IS IN EVERY CASE AND YOU DISAGREE WITH ME, YOU ARE A RED PILLED FAGGOT”
Of course it's not this for every case, which is why I speak about the general case, and not anecdotes.
Ah, troll. Cool
A very nice rebuttal of our point. Bravo.
