MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards proceed right now with our choose for creepiest new EA phrase of the yr. (For those who’re questioning what the heck a Golden Yachtie is, you will get caught up with the first award.)
And the winner is…
Step apart, “shock mechanics” and “sense of satisfaction and accomplishment” – grind foreign money has entered the chat! In accordance with a leak final spring that you just most likely forgot about, EA internally refers to foreign money earned in sport as “grind foreign money” and fairly deliberately designs video games round this grind. Bizarrely, EA then lied about utilizing the time period, regardless of it being in its personal paperwork, and complained about sensationalized reporting. You see, the actual downside with lockboxes is that the press is at all times protecting EA’s lockbox abuses. These pesky press!
