EA har fået utroligt meget kritik efter deres Star Wars Battlefront II beta og deres Loot Crates som skulle købes for rigtige penge. Det var alene muligt at få det bedst gear gennem Loot Crates hvilket i praksis betød at de spillere som købe Loot Crates fik udstyr som var meget bedre end du kunne få ved at spille. Dermed blev Star Wars Battlefront II Pay-to-Win. Her er opdateringen fra EA:

We’ve made changes to crates and progression based on player’s feedback. The beta gave us a welcome chance to test all of our systems in action and tune things up for better balance. A few weeks ago, we mentioned we were going to take another look at how the progression system works and after incorporating community feedback, we’re happy to share our plans for launch:

  • Epic Star Cards, the highest tier of Star Cards available at launch, have been removed from Crates
  • You’ll need to reach a certain rank to craft upgraded Star Cards
  • Weapons are locked behind specific milestones
  • Class-specific gear and items can be unlocked by playing as them

We’ll be continuously looking at player feedback to help fine tune and improve this system and others in the game, as we’re committed to keeping the community together including releasing all post-launch content for free and going to make sure that the game is fun for everyone.
