My comment doesn’t even require some moral stance against MTX from Cody, as he has expounded at length on enough reasons related purely to the playable and experiential aspects of Destiny to make it clear that he doesn’t value the majority of the game enough to get into a position to Raid.

Boycotts are useful tools, but they are ineffective if not tied to public outcry. Especially if the boycott is against something of sufficient size. Just “voting with money” by not buying something is a non-impact, too. You have to spend that money on competition to actual vote with the dollar. Talking about it is very, very good. Awareness is important because awareness influences much better than abrasions. But none of it is easy unless you aren’t invested in it. Once you make the decision, sure, it gets easier over time. But it doesn’t start that way.
