Our Patreon page has been ready for about a year now, but we think it's time to accept the very idea that we need your help. Tomorrow, we'll post all the details, with our goals and the rewards we can afford to offer those who will support us, but today we're also announcing a special livestream which will take place tomorrow at 9:45 p.m. CEST. Although we'll be playing live as usual, don't expect any new title as the point of all this is to explain to you why we must give the Patreon idea a try. We will obviously answer all the questions you might have and will hopefully convince those who can afford to chip in. We hope you will be there so we can have your feedback, as of course your opinion is important to us.

If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (1 Hour ago)
I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (1 Hour ago)
This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
