EA and Dice have literally bent over backwards trying to make people happy with Battlefront 2, and now BFV... No paid DLC, Cosmetic only micro-transactions, pushing release date in order to make a bunch of gameplay changes and address critiques from the beta. Now we are sitting here demanding that they allow standard edition buyers to get to play the game on the same day as people who purchase other versions of the game (which i pointed out isn't necessarily the most expensive option receiving the advantage). Do they need to roll out a red carpet for you guys?
The staggered release is a good thing for pretty much everyone involved:
EA/Dice: the game gets more exposure as streamers and other media content producers will undoubtedly have early access, and since the majority of people aren't playing, they will be watching.
Streamers/Content Producers: More people watching the game than playing it, higher viewership
Gamers: you get an 11 day window to see if the game sucks so you don't waste your money
Additional benefits: The networks won't be as shocked with players upfront so they can work on network stability and fixing minor issues leading up to the standard edition onslaught of players.
11 days of progress is absolutely meaningless, unless, like i said before, you are trying for world firsts. Do you people ever take a week off from gaming? Was everyone OP when you came back? Bad players will be bad regardless of guns and attachments, and good players will still manage to play well regardless of what they are using. Besides, with the way the unlock system works, if you see a gun you think is OP, you can just unlock it as your first unlock with the points, you don't have to wait to progress down a long list of unlocks.
Essentially this is like being jealous that some people get to go into early screenings of movies. If you both get to experience the art in the end, what was the difference? Other than you thinking you were entitled to watch it at the same time lol.
