Popular mobile game that is free to play Brawl Stars He does something a little different. In an era when every game seems to be trying to make more and more of something for you, instead, they’re removing loot boxes and all random rewards entirely from the game. It’s another sign that loot boxes are likely to become a relic of the past as gamers and players fall back on random rewards. But this does not mean Brawl Stars Players are universally happy to remove them.

Released in 2019 for phones and tablets, Brawl Stars Cute characters mixed with MOBA-like gameplay And some battle royale elements. The end result was a fun competitive action game that I played for weeks and weeks. But since I stopped playing it, millions have continued to enjoy it: Brawl Stars Made over a billion dollars in profits for Supercell and still has an active community and player base. Now, Supercell has removed all loot boxes from the game, and reaction to the change has been strangely mixed.

Advertise in the Brawl Talk video Posted last week, Supercell’s latest update for Brawl Stars He removed all random bonuses from the game.

“No more possibilities, no more random bonuses, and no more playing the guessing game when unlocking Brawlers,” said lead game designer Frank Keienburg in Supercell’s Brawl Talk video.

Yesterday, as part of this update, all unclaimed chests were opened automatically and all rewards were awarded to players accordingly. Going forward, Keienburg and Supercell say all rewards — including battle passes — will be replaced with “various inevitable rewards, some of which are new to the game.” Now, players have a new battle pass-like feature, Star Road, allowing them to unlock all characters for free via grinding. Players can now just buy any brawl they want using gems, instead of randomly buying dozens of loot chests to get a specific hero.

“We’re making this change for a number of reasons,” Keienburg continued. “Basically, walking away from odds and opportunities makes things fairer and more predictable for you. It also gives you clear, exciting goals every time you play.”

Of course, there is also the possibility that Supercell and other developers will remove loot boxes such as various governments around the world You start cracking down on them Proposed new laws and regulations.

why? For some, the loot box excitement seems to outweigh the frustration that often accompanies them. Others have suggested that they now have little interest in playing the game since the random rewards were removed. (I think some of these people need to stop and think about whether they really like it Brawl Stars Or just like pulling a virtual lever on a slot machine…) We’ve seen something similar to this happen Monitoring 2as some players were angry about the removal of loot boxes and He demanded that they be returned to the game. And while I agree This progress in Monitoring 2 sucks For now, I’d prefer Blizzard to figure out a way to fix that doesn’t include Return the loot boxeseven if it gave you a lot of free software before.

The truth is that as gaming continues to grow in popularity, more countries will begin to investigate the industry and how it can be made. Loot boxes are not likely to come back into vogue as long as they are Many governments are leading crusades to regulate or outlaw them.
