Did it really have to be that way? Just when we saw that elegant game trailer for Jedi Star Wars: The Fallen Order that featured a lot of interesting images and ignited a spark of hope in all of us. A hope that EA has finally returned to his right mind and that they want to change things and return to their roots, at the time when they were doing everything possible to please the players, not the investors. Now, they launched a new Iron Crown Event for Apex Legends, and it's full of surprises … mechanical.
The point is that the Iron Crown Collection Event for Apex Legends is something that its player base was literally begging in recent months. A way to present an incredible and attractive event, which would make players excited and eager to quickly return to the game to earn limited rewards of elegant appearance. And they did exactly that, with the introduction of the Legendary Hunt event, which was a great, fun and engaging event, while allowing players to earn incredible rewards. Unfortunately, the Iron Crown event is nothing like that, and players around the world are outraged, and for good reason.
During the Iron Crown event, you can complete specific challenges in the game, which will give you some rewards. To unlock the best event masks and all main objects, you must open the Iron Crown packages. The point is that, simply by playing, you can win 2 of these Iron Crown packages. To get the other 22, you must purchase them through your wallet. Well, since Apex Legends is a free game and, in general, the packages are priced at 1 USD each, it should only take 22 USD to unlock all this, right? Well, not really … Unlike the regular ones, these iron crown packages cost 700 Apex coins (approximately 7 USD each), so it translates to 154 USD in total if you want to get all the benefits (or around USD 140 if you buy with discount) Apex coins). However, this not all. If you unlock the 24 packages, you will also unlock the option to buy Heirloom for 3,500 Apex coins. Assuming that he managed to get two packages playing and bought the remaining 22 packages and the Heirloom, all that will add up to 170 USD (including discounts). But, if you did not complete the challenges and bought everything, that will cost you a total of almost 200 USD. Unlike the first event, The Legendary Hunt, which was attractive and fun, it feels like a cash theft, meant to force people to spend money to get some of the rewards they are offering.
So, you have two options here, or you play the game, you win your two Iron Crown packages and you pray to the RNG Gods that these booties b … I mean, surprise mechanics grant you the skin for one of your Main courses, or you can open your wallet. Still, there is always the third option, and I am pretty sure that you are all aware of what it is.
