But he does understand why they are subject to such strict scrutiny.
Peter Moore, the former electronic arts executive, once said FIFA Ultimate Team “Far away” from gambling.
In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, EA alumni said that the company’s popular Ultimate Team mode in this mode is more like a football sticker. Moore does understand why this business model has received a lot of criticism and scrutiny in recent years.
He said: “You always get something.” “It’s not like you open it, there are no players there.
“This is a personal point of view, but the concepts of surprise and pleasure and gambling…on a continuum, there is still a long way to go between each other. You buy or grind your own way to get gold, and then open it , Or feel happy, or you think this is a cr-fighting outfit. I don’t think this is gambling, but again, this is my current personal opinion as an outsider.
“I accepted the review and I know that outside of sports, the loot box-especially another EA title-has received a lot of scrutiny and criticism. EA withdrew this request. One thing they have been good at is getting feedback and Realize “what do you know and probably shouldn’t do this” or “that was a wrong decision, not player first”, then withdraw and make a different decision.”
Since 2017, with EA’s own “Star Wars: Battlefront 2” (Star Wars: Battlefront 2) quite radically implementing loot boxes as a business model, governments around the world have been studying whether loot boxes constitute gambling.
Recently, EA was fined 10 million dollars in the Netherlands for FIFA loot boxes (it is said to be appealing), and faced a series of lawsuits against EA for using loot boxes in games. The company described the lawsuit filed in California as “unfounded.”
Moore left EA in 2017 as the CEO of Liverpool Football Club. Useless, here is a bunch of cool pictures about exec.
