Did this move the needle for you guys on getting the game or do you feel this would of been a better to have her in the game and people find out when they play the game? - Borzen00 00:14:12 Best Friend Q. - Do you think, in modern games criticism, that length is something that should even factor into reviews anymore?

Since then, it has sold over 6 million units, has become a major eSports staple, and is continuously improved upon today by Psyonix. Now, they're removing lootboxes?! We have NEVER heard of this before in a multiplayer game! Could this be a sign that sales are dropping so they want to get good PR now and bump them up?
