Fans of the Apex Legends subreddits are extremely unhappy with the response a respawn developer has made to the Iron Crown event, especially after the microtransaction changes for the Iron Crown event, with most of the criticism targeting the price of microtransactions ,
For example, Bloodhound's Heirloom Ax requested that players collect all cosmetics from the event and pay an additional fee.
Apex developers apologized for their monetization, but the fans were not satisfied.
Respawn defended her position by saying that a mistake was made, but many fans do not buy it and respond with inflammatory reactions.
This is nothing new, but the developers claim that the limit has been exceeded.
A comment by respawn developer dko5 states that most of the players are "freeloaders" & # 39; t sat well with the fans.
"There's a wealth of data on how monetization works in free-to-play games, and we've done tests by selling skins in-store," the developer wrote. "The amount of people who spend is crazy low, most of you are freeloaders (and we love that!) And a change in price does not move the needle.
The comment has been received at the time of 282 devaluations With many fans, microtransaction costs are too high, but the developer says that's the reality.
Apex Legends developers face big problems.
"I do not know what to say to you, Dude – the data is very clear," he wrote in a comment with 49 devaluations. "We would make much less money until the game might not be profitable."
Respawn has spent a lot of time responding to Reddit after the backlash, but sometimes they do not like what they want to hear. Forbes & # 39; Paul Tassi even intervened and mentioned the current chaos.

EA did this with the launch of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and their commentary "Sense for Pride and Performance" went through, which became the most downgraded answer in Reddit's history.
Since Battlefront 2 has recovered and completely overhauled and even many fans on Reddit recovered. Time will tell if the same thing will happen to Apex Legends.
