    I agree with everything here, but the problem is that, with the loot boxes or things of that nature, you always receive 'something,' which means legally, and technically, it's not gambling. It is still very immoral, and uses gambling exploitations, but it means that there is no legal action to take, but still, very wrong, and should be banned

    Something to keep in mind is that laws can be changed to classify this stuff as gambling, also.  That loophole you mentioned is definitely well-known and it's how these people get away with what they're doing without regulation, but like, we can all see exactly what this is, right?  It's absolutely gambling in reality.

    If you don't like it, discourage other people from buying Microsoft's products.  It's called capitalism.

    You can not force a competetive cooperation like Microsoft to use their own capacities to expose servers you described, for following reason: Microsoft would have no financial benefit of this, but would still have to pay for such a capacity.

    The real culprit are the server owners, not Microsoft.

    What Microsoft really could do, though: They could create a player based poll for each server, to see if

    - payment methods exist for that server

    - payment methods are required for that server, or are optional

    - existant payment methods are solemnly meant for the operation of the server

    Connected to these results would be filters which players can flag/unflag, maybe in combination with a parental lock (meaning only a parent can "unblock" payment using servers for their kids).

    If I remember correctly, server owners for the past couple of years have not been allowed to let players pay with real money to receive something that was already in the game or part of the game. There was quite a few servers blacklisted for breaking this rule. If it's a rank, or some other feature that wasn't available in the vanilla game, or completely created from the ground up, it's probably acceptable. Maybe not ethical, but acceptable.
