    People hate them because in their recent games all they care about is Micro transactions (Which means buying something with real money in game) and they care more about that than the game itself

    Micro-transactions. Pay to win games, etc. Locking you out of aspects of a bunch of games unless you pay, let's say, $5. It's a ridiculous way to get more money out of the customer, regardless of them paying a good amount of money for the base game itself.

    Nono, you see the intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.

    As for cost, they selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, they're looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily basis, and they'll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via gameplay.

    They appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on The Hive forums, Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.

    Their team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as they can.

    Or they could just make all the content available with the base game, and stop with the play/pay to win nonsense and loot box gambling.

    The good old days when games didn't have any DLCs because it was all in the base game...

    I met a former customer support person who became a developer at a game studio that was bought out by EA in Virginia. He told me that EA has two main goals: to have fun and to make money. Truth is, most AAA games take years to develop, and their development software is costly. Making games is a huge investment as to if they will succeed or not. Also, like investing, you can't expect to get something it you don't put at least something back first.
