Forget GTA 5, Star Wars Battlefront 2 Has Redefined Grinding

Battlefront & Overwatch's Loot Boxes Under Investigation In Belgium

If you only purchase $100 crystal packs, this will cost $2,100. For example, getting all four base troopers requires 68 total cards - 17 for each - and 32,640 crafting parts.

"There is a grand total of 324 cards", a writer for the blog writes, totaling up all its numbers. Loot crates give an average of 2 cards, and crafting parts are assumed to have an average of 50. This is equivalent to 30 crystals. "This requires opening a grand total of 3,111 loot crates which will require 4,528 hours of gameplay". "12,000 crystals can be bought for $100", the blog says. Of course, gamers don't need to unlock this content in order to enjoy its multiplayer action or the singleplayer campaign, but the numbers themselves are certainly daunting to look at. They allowed players to save time by paying extra money to accelerate the "unlock" of major characters like Darth Vader. Although the game is not mentioned by name it's pretty clear what they're talking about here, especially the bit about not having to unlock co-op commanders. You can play Overwatch for hundreds of hours and still be far from unlocking half of the prizes. Somewhat sneakily, however, it also cut down the coins awarded for completing challenges, and put a cap on how many coins could be earned in a certain amount of time through single player.
