Battle passes

Battle passes are a mainstay in the online multiplayer genre but aren’t welcome. This particular grind provides a ladder full of loot divided into two tiers: one containing free spoils and the other full of premium ones. Unfortunately, the freebies are usually scarce and mostly inferior compared to the latter, a deliberate ploy to lure players into pulling out their wallets. Worse, these battle passes also come with expiration dates. So when they’re gone, they’re gone.
