    Is it becoming a religion, tradition, psychological oppressive phenomenon, addiction?

    Will it ever become a thing of the past? (maybe when humanity will die?)

    It's a satire. It's like buying a game that is actually a part and you have to pay extra for the rest.

    You want to buy new game assets?
    Bitch please, in order to have access to the market where you spende real money, you have to pay 50$!
    And another 20$ per month to maintain access.
    On the market you cannot buy directly what you want, of course, you have to buy lootboxes and pray to RNGesus and the publisher that you get what you want.

    it's an attitude created by people and then tolerated by people.
    it will end when 1) people no longer practise it because they recognise the scummy nature of it and place moral good above personal monetary gain
    2) people will no longer tolerate it and refrain from using anything that is tainted by it (and yes that includes the new mortal kombat game)

    I wanted it to be as gray, I mean, as general as possible but most of them are about that company.

    It's always a never-ending, festering cycle of greed-fed malice and malice-led greed with these people, in every single damn sphere be it entertainment, health, education, etc :eek:

    What do you expect? People of the Qliphoth and beyond.

    I'm sorry, they donate the money from microtransactions for humanitarian purposes.
