We're now on the crate and key take a gamble at what you want system, meaning any money I put forward for these keys a possible waste.
Not only do we no longer have control over what we may get but the cost of them has increased exponentially with this too, meaning if I wanted to have all content like I'd always aimed to with RL, it could now cost me hundreds and that's just on one platform. To top it off we are not being rewarded in any way by this key system for taking part as an active player, whereas a key drop every now and then could have easily been a rare but randomized treat based on play time.
Finally, the playerbase have been requesting stuff like more decals for the longest time and now that it's here it's locked behind a crate and key system rather than just a big DLC pack. I'd have happily paid for the content in a big pack, but these are free to play mechanics in a full priced game. I'd have honestly rather paid for Rumble and all the extras than what we ended up with.
Bingo! Do that and I won't care but right now this is bullshit. Think if in Overwatch's Summer Games you had no way of attaining a crate whatsoever without spending cash and imagine what the backlash would be, because that's very similar to what's happening here.

I've already played Rumble for more than two hours and the only problems I've noticed on Xbox were the regular server farts + complete connection drops during a match that came from the server.
