I was on the verge of cancelling my pre-order for this game based on the loot crate system, no matter how much fun I'd had with the Beta.  However, EA has responded to the outcry to the satisfaction of some.  If they're being honest, I'm mostly placated.

Hm, I already posted that response to the criticism...it seems none of my posts are visible to others here?   :D

And it seems Activision is already one step ahead of EA...this seems to be next step on their way to kill the hobby  :-\

I'm kind of bothered - but actually, if I'm honest, I have enough hobbies to keep me busy. If gaming went, then yeah, I'd be sad...at least initially. But then I'd get my glue and sanders out with my airbrush and paints...or get out some of those fantastic boardgames I have.

Unlike the industry, I wouldn't die.

I was initially excited about single player but I think you're probably right in that there probably won't be alot there - maybe 6-10 hours. They focus on MP so I won't be biting on this one anyway.
