It doesnt really matter if you like it or not, at the end of the day its Apple's policy and OTM needs to obey it

Bosses are not paid loot boxes, therefore OTM will not be required to disclose any data on them.

All this bs is because of the most greedy gaming company EA. Otm isn’t a multi billion dollar company however and it upsets me that smaller companies have to feel the shockwaves of the earthquake that larger companies created.

Big companies are greedy and the gaming community is full of assholes. Small companies just want to survive

Doesn't matter how big nor how small, if there are negative social consequences to loot boxes, it doesn't matter if its EA, Blizzard, or OTM selling them. Loot boxes are without any debate, gambling, but as many countries and territories require, gambling must display the odds. Think of scratch-off tickets, a pretty similar in form to your typical loot box.
Displaying the odds won't change how many of the boxes are bought, same way scratch offs are still being sold, but rather it gives the community a sense of "okay, that's what I'm paying for" instead of 100% blind luck.
Personally, I think loot boxes should be prohibited as a paid for item. Make it a way to give a randomized reward, sure, but gambling in games sucks. And this is coming from someone who buys chests, and opens them, pretty often. Bought 1600 chests the weekend of double plat for example.

Who cares how big or small the company is. If what they are doing is wrong, its wrong. If company X is a billion-dollar firm and Z is a small business, and both sponsor terrorism, it doesn't matter who makes more money, the act itself is wrong. (was gunna use drug cartels, but i get that "illegal" drugs is a whole different debate, hopefully we can all agree that terrorism is bad).
