    I don't know how Belgian lawmakers deals with videogames, but I suppose they aren't on the same boat as German "it's all for kids, make them robots or Hitler will be back" idiocy.

    But this interpretation can mean something for countries like USA in that ERSB can be pressured and yield to consider that chest gambling makes games adults-only. Real currency gambling is already cited in their criteria for a game being A-category (see here).

    I would be glad to see less teens and teen-oriented content in Smite, but I'm pretty sure it'd be terrible for business being re-classed from T to A.

    Yeah I get it- Smite is free and I have spent more money on Smite than any game- Ever.

    There are several skins I really want but I'm not buying the whole chest just to get the one.

    Wish I could just buy the skins straight up.

    Like...idk.

    If Snow Bae had been direct purchase and costed 5k gems...I'd still have bought it. In a heartbeat. So...
    if someone see skin buy without lootbox system and find very expensive skin he won't buy it unlike in loot box it tells you cheap box and try your luck with 1/5 and you spend more than the skin worth

    your so wrong man , i can only agree with you if i can take this skin i don't need or voice i don't need and trade it with other players for another items or another skins , take example as dota 2 or tf2 or warframe , but you cannot do that so if you get something you don't want its basically waste of money and negative value because you won't use it , imagine if you go to restaurant and tell him i want chicken and rice and he bring you chicken + rice + soup + cheese cake , and then when you tell him what the hell he answer you you have to pay for that and its call BS even worst he could never give you chicken and rice instead other things you don't need and thats from bad to worst , maybe its okay for you but most of us its just stupid bad gamble
