The most downvoted comment in Reddit history is now a Star Wars Battlefront 2 mod

In November last year, an EA representative made Reddit’s most unpopular comment of all time in response to an aggravated Star Wars Battlefront 2 player, miffed at the game’s microtransaction-heavy business model. The first line in particular is a great lesson in why you should always read the room. 

“The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.”

It’s a piece of art. And like all great art, it’s been inspiring. Take, for instance, the new lootbox textures available on Nexus mods. Creator Dareedevokl has captured the spirit of the lootbox system, the pride and accomplishment, by emblazoning the sentiment on the side of every box. 

All BS should be immortalised this way.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
