    Hmm, users are the ones whos made lootboxes sustainable monetisation by supporting the tumor business model with their free will and money but blame the studios when they've got cancer, is one way to look at it.

    Though, you can still hate Epic for whatever reason but you should save most of the hate for Valve since they were the one who made lootboxes, gambling in games this popular and yet they have never ever compensated users nor stop using lootboxes in their games. Not too long ago people were even able to money laundering via CS:GO but who really cares.

    But isn't Gabe a new age Jesus? People eat his bullshit in any way, shape or form. And then complain about GOG, EPIC, BigFishGames DRM. And EA, Ubisoft's practices.

    Gamers are a bit retarded.

    You can get 1,000 V-Bucks for around 9 dollars... That's pretty weak, considering a single loot box back when they were doing that was around $10. At least it's something, I guess.

    i purchased 1 item in Rocket League, the Delorean. I don't understand buying more than what you want in the game. I probably have like 1000 items sitting in my account too, you can't use custom stuff on DLC cars lol.

    Wasn't entirely sure what to expect before entering this thread, but if I had to guess, it would have been this.

    So they aren't choosing to compensate, they're being forced too.

    They also aren't really compensating at all.

    This amounts to, "you took out a lawsuit, but we technically still won, we have retained all cash"

    Vbucks cost them nothing, you could even argue it's a kind of promotion, which could earn them more in the long run. Not to mention the inevitable positive publicity this is likely to be spun into.

    They should release El Chapo and lock up the drug addicts instead?

    You bought garbage so here's some more free garbage because you sued us over the original garbage.

    That's the same kind of BS as "compensating in exposure".

    No, a single lootbox was 50 cents (50 vbucks), the 1000 ones where for super people loot llamas and the legendary troll stash llama only.

    Doesn't seem to be much positive publicity in this thread.

    How unfortunate that Unreal Tournament 4 and Jazz Jackrabbit 3 were never officially finished circa Anno Domini of years 1999/2000-2017/2018. According to IGN CCP banned Plague Inc in China. I guess Tencent is also behind of this. Not exactly Epic Games and People Can Fly/Epic Games of Poland.

    No, it's just that I do not have sympathy for drug addicts. So, same here with people shittin about Epic while they know better that Valve is more 'evil' in this regard yet they didn't even compensated anything or step backward with lootboxes. Simply put, hypocracy of gamers as always.

    I heard something about Chinese Communist Party Steam Censorship. Will it affect Epic Games Store too?

    Yes thoses are the one in save the world, there was different kind of llamas, the basic ones where 50 vbucks, there was also super expansives ones at 1000 and 1500 vbucks, but the basic ones always have been 50 vbucks.

    Didn't even know there was a lawsuit going on.

    Oh well, free rocket league credits for doing nothing.
