  1. Loot boxes and microtransactions

    I don't think that this would actually work very well and rather than get people to buy things it would more than likely just put them off playing online at all. Nobody wants to be the cannon fodder so a system that means you will get slaughtered from the get go is just going to mean people will not play.
  2. Leicester City

    Shakespeare has been sacked apparently
  3. The Film Thread

    What annoyed me even more is just about every single news report i have heard today called it Ex-Hurricane Ophelia. An Ex-Hurricane..... That will be a storm then
  4. Loot boxes and microtransactions

    You have no idea what are in the car packs in the deluxe edition but still buy anyway... Opening a crate guarantees a car, an outfit & some mods. It is guaranteed. You do not know exactly which variant of these things you will get but you will get them all. You can/will lose if you gamble. You can not lose here, you always get something. Have you ever bought panini/football stickers>? Are those gambling? of course not but you will buy 100's of packs because you need that one st.mirren player you haven't got
  5. Loot boxes and microtransactions

    Forza has had paid content for years, VIP packs that cost more, car passes that cost loads more, ultimate editions that feature the first 6 car passes but not the other 4 or 5 they later release. 2 additional dlc packs for every game all of which cost money. Timed rewards boosts that could be paid for with real money (literally pay £3 for an hour of double xp) actually buying ingame cars individually with real money (some more than £10). Nothing in 7 is locked behind paid content, the dearest car is about 1.5 million (previous games were generally 6-10 million) If you have played forza games perviously you will get 300,000 or so cr per week from forza hub, which is enough to buy the dearest crate. Without mods on any sort of difficulty you get about 30-50,000 cr per race on the short distances and you get a free car/outfit or 70,000 every 3 or 4 races. Play longer distance races & this is pretty much every race. By the time you have played the career mode even half way through you should have more money than you know what to do with and more cars than you could ever hope to drive. SOME of the 700 cars are only in crates or the speciality dealer, SOME of the driver suits are only in crates but all of the cars will be available to purchase in the auction house anyway using only ingame currency so no need to spend a single penny of real money. just a few people have seen the word lootbox/crate and have decided to make up a giant pile of hysterical shite... The crates are entirely optional & in every one (bar the small mods crates only) you are guaranteed a car,suit & some mods. sometimes the car is worth far more than the cost of the crate and if you have duplicates of anything you can sell them or are auto granted the monetary equivalent. I have played 60 hours or so, have around 400 cars, 150 outfits and still have more than enough money to buy another 100+cars
  6. Loot boxes and microtransactions

    They are not gambling though are they. You are guaranteed to get something. You just don't know exactly what it is. No different than any of the blind-box toys etc that are on the market. You might hope to get such & such but in reality you will more than likely end up with something else. Is a kinder egg gambling because you don't know what toy is inside?

    Pulev injured his shoulder in sparring apparently, Not sure if he will be fit to face AJ
  8. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    it was until a single right hook to the body ended it
  9. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    FFS the shitty england brass band arseholes are at the groves fight. They should be banned from every single public place/event. Now watching with tv on mute
  10. Pre match buildup

    Win & we are 2 points off the top of the league...
  11. The Ex-Villa Player thread - Keeping tabs on old Villans

    Went to watch Telford yesterday. Cowans had a good game and is starting to find some form. Seems he has had some interesting ex-villa company in training too as Joleon Lescott has also been training with Telford along with Ex-wolves Sylvan Ebanks-Blake. Think it is more the fact they are both mates with Rob Edwards (current Telford manager) and trying to stay fit with Telford now training pretty much full-time from this season rather than them looking to play in the conference north but who knows
  12. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    Handy website for those thinking of digging up old shows and wondering how long it will take to get through them if you were to do nothing else but watch them back to back https://www.bingeclock.com/ We've all marathonned a sitcom or two. A courtroom drama. A sci-fi anthology series. Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings. A talk show. Lost. But how long does it really take? How much time to watch them all?
  13. Active Shooter On Las Vegas Strip

    Not really sure it's about that. every time something like this happens and the gun control issue comes up such a huge deal is made about not being able to do anything due to the NRA being so powerful as they donate huge sums of money. $50 million simply isn't a huge sum of money in America.
  14. Active Shooter On Las Vegas Strip

    $54 million is really nothing though is it. Netflix pay Adam Sandler that... If everyone in California chipped in $2 a year it would be way more than that.... Pretty much unrestricted gun access because politicians don't want to risk losing $50mil? If every celeb that spends their time calling trump a f**kwit on twitter put 0.25% of their earnings in a pot they could make the NRA contributions looks like loose change
  15. Formula One - 2017

    Think if you put the 3 of them in exactly the same car it would finish 1:Hamilton, 2:Alonso, 3:Vettel on the majority of tracks
