It was a wild weekend on the Apex Legends subreddit. Fans, upset about the ridiculous Iron Crown event microtransactions, had been making their feelings known. When representatives from developer Respawn stepped into address concerns, they ended up fanning the flames rather than put any out. That's because the devs in question called their game's fans various swear words and made statements like "most of you are freeloaders" which, I think it's safe to say, is a ridiculous thing to tell your customers, even if many of them do play your free-to-play game without spending a dime. That's not freeloading, first of all. The definition of freeloader is "a person who takes advantage of others' generosity without giving anything in return." This is used to describe, for instance, an unwelcome house guest who takes advantage of your hospitality, or someone who leaches off the system, drawing benefits without contributing labor (assuming they're able-bodied and have no excuses). Maybe instead of asking others for a shred of common sense, you could add some of your own.
