Exactly as it says.

I am by no means shy about spending real-world cash on in-game purchases, and I’m totally 100% a-okay with
“pay to win” (I have far, far more money than I do free time… or patience for in-game grinding, for that matter). But I pretty much never buy loot boxes. If I really, truly want a thing–and outfit, a skin, a powerup, whatever–I’d much rather pay more up-front and know I’m going to get it than gamble with boxes.1
