The article is slightly wrong. The Iron Crown Apex Packs cannot be bought with Crowns. They can only be be bought with 700 Apex Coins (£7/$7 a pack) and the minimum coin increment is 1000 coins so it'll cost you more than that £7/$7 for a pack.

You are absolutely right Z0rrofox. The story has been updated. Thanks for the heads up! Mis-understanding on my part laugh

EA would make so much more money if they lowered the cost for apex packs. If it was $1-$3 a pack, so many more people would buy it. Not sure if they have the right strategy officer in place telling them where to price items. However, I love this game, but have not spent $1 on apex packs.

But for just $189 you could have it all! Unless you don't get the two whole free packs; then it's over $200!

What an absolute scumbag cash grab move from EA. I guess they wanted to make sure everyone remembered that they're the publisher.

They doing it before the US government nerfs or bans the scamboxes. EA and Respawn doing some scum moves.

Personally I did not enjoy the time-limited "Solo Mode" and the "Iron Crown Event".

In Solo Mode people seemed to camp a whole lot more and some matches drag on for quite a while. Plus most people just play as Pathfinder, which makes the experience rather predictable and boring.

Regarding the "Iron Crown Event" I didn't feel like spending money on random lootboxes with crap in them. I was actually only interested on 2 skins (Wraith & Lifeline), but there was no option for direct purchase. The event tasks to unlock something were very grindy (25000 damage points took a while) and in the end I received crap which I will not use (a theme song and a skin for the triple-take).

I loved the previous event which was called "The Legendary Hunt". It was pretty clear what you need to do to unlock what, the challenges were fair, the skins are decent and the Elite Queue was fun to play.
