    I'm very glad that at least something is being done.

    I have played online games for a long time, but once I realized that I would have to buy loot boxes, card packs, randomized crates for the rest of my life to stay competitive while having a life, I simply stopped playing MMOs altogether. :o

    In my personal opinion randomized pay 2 play BS needs to gotten rid of entirely before I even consider playing another online game. :mad: Players are getting banned for trading accounts or using mods, but the developers can get away with running a casino for 12 year old children.
