these so called "ludicrous" microtransactions must not be that ludicrous if people are buying them. again, no need for you to buy them if you dont want too.
dont get me wrong, i believe they are out to do nothing but make money. they most likely dont care what anyone thinks about them as long as that cash flow keeps rolling in, but to (and this isnt pointed at any one individual) sit here and say that theyre the only company to buy another company and then watch the former companies titles turn to shit is quite hypocritical. biggest offender? possibly but their not any less guilty than say activision
