Between this, and the Kotaku Battlefield article, it looks like EA got the message. I'm optimistic about Battlefield V, now that seem very cautious not to put in the egregious type of microtransactions in.
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
