Star Wars Battlefront II EA Reddit Comment Now A Loot Box Skin Mod
The Star Wars Battlefront II loot box controversy has been well known to most people aware of gaming news. The biggest interaction between EA and fans upset about the microtransactions in the game was the infamous, most-downvoted comment EA made on Reddit to defend their player progression system. Now, this notorious comment has intersected with another popular aspect of the culture surrounding the title – modding. A new Star Wars Battlefront II EA Reddit comment mod brings a new loot box skin that references the ridiculed statement from Electronic Arts.
Modder Dareedevokl uploaded the new mod on their NexusMods page called “Pride and Accomplishment,” which is a reference to the famed phrase that EA used regarding their intent for what they wanted players to feel when unlocking characters in Battlefront II. Many gamers found this to be an especially weak defense for the player progression system that functioned to encourage microtransaction purchases in the game. Referencing this connection, the “Pride and Accomplishment” mod paints this phrase on loot boxes in the classic, bright yellow Star Wars logo font.
Players who unlock their daily loot boxes with this mod will be easily reminded of the sense of fulfillment EA wanted them to have. This is obviously a lighthearted take on a complicated topic, but it is fun to see the modding community once again use the tools at their disposal to comment on the loot box controversy. While it sounds like EA will make the Battlefront II microtransactions active in the future, this might send a message to keep them in carbon freeze a little longer.
