A big issue in the video game industry in the last few months has undoubtedly been loot boxes. Only a few current multiplayer titles can do without them and are hated by most players at the same time. Although you usually get only cosmetic bonuses in such packages, often feel Lootboxen but rather to content, which contain the developers in front of the players.

 

Another point is that lootboxes often have to be paid for in real money, and because of the arbitrariness of content, shoppers do not know what they are getting. The Dutch gaming supervisor has now decided that lootboxes are unlawful because they violate the Gambling Act. The fact that the content would be traded outside of the game and would therefore have a market value, a gambling license would be required and would not be lawful. According to the study, the Lootboxes have an addictive potential and would have to undergo changes in order to be able to survive in the mold.

 

By the middle of June, the developers who are criticized for this will have time to change certain elements. For example, it would be problematic to be able to open several Lootboxes in succession. The users get the impression, almost to win. According to the NOS broadcaster report, video games such as DotA 2, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, FIFA 18 or Rocket League are affected. If the developers did not submit to the measures, further steps will be taken.

 

So we do think buying Rocket League Items from AOEAH.COM is better than opening Rocket League crates to obtain items!
