Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) sent a letter to Vance earlier this month, asking the Entertainment Software Ratings Board to review the ratings process as it relates to loot boxes, examine the marketing of loot boxes to children and develop best practices for developers around the toxic form of microtransactions. The Senator also asked the board to conduct a study that further delves into the reach and impact of loot boxes in games.

Interesting the comparison with Baseball cards in the article from the loot boxes supporters.
Unfortunately there’s no option to exchange the cards you get within a game with other players.

Also, is this why the war was canceled? Is scopely making a change to lootboxes or couldn’t get an update through IOS during war, ruining game play for half of the players. https://gamerant.com/apple-nintendo-square-enix-block-loot-box/

Nope. War is cancelled due to combat imbalances between 9.2 and 9.3. An issue was found in Beta related to Pixel Devices that we needed to fix before pushing 9.3 live on the platform. We deployed the fix yesterday but that would not give us enough time to release and update the build before the planned war.

Since there’s no war can’t y’all push the magical button for the update? So many people are saving pulls for the new wheels and next week seems forever away.

I’m not sure honestly. I only post about the lame stuff likes bugs and troubleshooting. They don’t let me do the fun stuff =P
