This Week’s Features
Even before its release, Star Wars Battlefront 2 was in hot water for the way it locked character progression behind loot boxes. Fortunately, DICE have taken feedback on board and have made some changes from the beta, but have they gone far enough? Tef also spoke with the developers about how they see feedback going forwards and ask what’s going on with the chickens in the game?
Although Jim said that COD: WWII was “the most fun I’ve had playing the series online since Black Ops”, there are some changes he’d like to see to the ‘Bronze Star’ system, which is not implemented nearly as well as Overwatch’s similar ‘Play of the Game’.
Finally, we have What We Played, which featured COD: WWII, Battlefront II, and Destiny 2.
The Life and Times of TSA’s Community continues this week with:
