Microtransactions in games don't really bother me. If it's taking away something tedious or just letting game players do something faster, no big deal. 

Yet imagine you paid a small fortune, probably at a premium since flag-waving capitalists running car companies make sure government won't let you buy a car without a dealer (car dealers love socialism when it makes them rich) only to find out your fancy electric car has features - like acceleration - that some grifter didn't tell you would cost another $1,200 per year. 

Welcome to Mercedes Microtransactions.

And it will work, because if you believe electric cars are cleaner than conventional cars you're not just in the 1%, you're the 0.6% - and even more elite if you can afford Mercedes.
