    Very interesting.
    If only this could lead to the end of lottery boxes in games.

    Dimensions on Brisesol : Domaine Imari (Mordrahan) / Centre de recherches (Mordrahan) / Laboratoire glaciaire (Mordrahan) / Last hope (Aislyn) / Le refuge du Corbeau Rouge (Kasora) / Kelari spirit (Asri) / Ghost ship (Syel) / A la vie, la mort (Sadar) / Le chemin de l'harmonie (Sadar) / Temple Solaire (Sadar) / Refuge de montagne (Sadar)

    The new loot box system was a step up but they may need another new system.

    As someone who has been following the developments over the last few weeks concerning loot boxes I think that's exactly where this may be heading.

    For anyone interested this guy summarized the happenings of the past few weeks quite nicely.

    Rift (and all games with loot boxes) will likely receive an R18+ rating in AU in the coming years of laws being set.

    I do know that Valve was forced to show their percentages of acquiring from loot boxes this year.

    This is great news. I hope we do see some legislation soon, because this has gone on long enough.

    There are better ways to monetize.

    Loot boxes are a form of gambling as there is no skill involved, it is pure randomly generated luck. given what is happening in Europe at present then it is very likely that this type of gambling will need to be regulated and in the UK that is something that is likely to happen very soon. I would expect it to fall under the same set of regulation that is being looked at to limit the stakes that can be placed on randomised "instant" wins/increased regulation on online gambling, and at the very least there would have to be an option to "limit your losses" - where you are only allowed to spend a certain amount before it will lock you out from further purchases.

    In UK there would also have to be a change to Rift's age rating, especially if it was found to have a "gambling" element.

    All it took was the Corporate greed of EA to go into overdrive with the new Star Wars game and Disney to start getting nervous..
