Slowly but surely more countries are beginning to realize that gambling is in fact gambling.

@YongYea Two questions for you. What do you think will happen if instead of loot boxes game companies start selling overpowered guns/characters/player cards at their storefront for outrageous prices like over $1,000 per item? It will no longer be considered gambling cause you know exactly what you're getting but for an inflated price. Number 2: do you think game companies will ever make it literally impossible to unlock in-game items through gameplay and force us to pay real world currency for everything? For example, now in FIFA Ultimate Team you earn roughly 500 coins per game so do you think EA will ever stop giving us coins for playing games and force us to buy everything with real money? I would greatly appreciate your reply

@alpha34098 hahahahahaha, as if not selling a game in Brasil has ever stopped us, it's just a game and expensive one at it, people woudn't be that mad about it. And for what is worth it's an ANCED cause over the whole country, so there will be an investigation made by PF (brasilian FBI) and it will be taken to the Supreme Court, the law already exists so this won't need the Congress or the President (thanks GOD), they will just say "hey this new thing falls under that old gamblig law" and that's it, of course not that fast or simple but it's almost a certanty!!

Brazil is big market in numbers but our currency is not strong ... so we are " small". Problem here is not people not wanting to consume is that people can't consume because of prices. (and trust me the "torrent market" is huge in here). But if Brazil is saying hey this is bad... man.. this shit is bad, because in here... laws are fine but how things goes.. is "weird".

In countries where lootboxes are banned in TF2 you can still get crates but you cannot open them in the country.

About riot games, I don't really feel like I'm pressured on spending on gambling cosmetics on their games since it's much more worth buying them directly. Garena on the other hand though, they handle LoL on SEA countries and they have event tie-ins that do include predatory gambling.

Just for reference a launching game cost here in Brasil is literally 1 third of the minimal wage given the high rate of taxes for everything you buy, but for games is specifically and absurdly high, so we definitely do not need spend more money with loot boxes, even so a lot of people go off their way to buy games that are already very expensive by themselves, for it is a very appreciated entertainment here.

Notice how Blizzard wasn't in that list, I think its because they do it best with overwatch, get one free every level or for doing event/quest stuff and if u want u can spend money but it's 100% cosmetics, nothing u need so just play, have fun, get free stuff and if u really wanna spend money then do it Even for events like Halloween when u level up u get a Halloween box and not a normal one like most games would do and make u pay for these cosmetics where Blizzard let's u try and get them for free Other companies need to take notes

So, if all 13 of those companies continued to sell loot boxes, that's a collective total of over 63 MILLION USD made PER WEEK! You think they'll use any of that to help the poor?

The only way I will see loot boxes as gambling is if there are weapons and characters locked behind them, similarly to old Battlefront 2 and Call of Duty. Cosmetic only loot boxes aren't as harmful, especially like Overwatch.

When is a big country gonna finally regulate loot boxes? The UK seemed promising, but we haven't heard anything from them since the fall of last year. If Brazil does something, EA will just stop selling FIFA Points there just like Belgium and The Netherlands and say it's non-material to their financial performance

All the companies will refuse to pay the fines, and the Brazilian authorities will not enforce it. They will most likely be bribed to look the other way. Brazil is high on piracy anyway because videogames are so unaffordable there, so all the companies will laugh it off and refuse to acknowledge this law since they are not a big gaming market (legal gaming I mean).
