Battlefront II campaign reward reduced, making it more difficult to earn Credits.
Oh my god ! That's just insulting to consumers. EA never freaking change.
This greed even to gamers is astounding. Damn ea
They changed it because the entire point of the credits from the campaign was to unlock Iden Versio. So when they reduced the cost of all heroes by 75%, it knocked her cost down to 5,000 credits. So they changed the campaign to 5,000 credits too. You still get like 12,000 or so credit for doing well in multiplayer, which isn't a change from prior to the 75% reduction in hero costs. Just sayin'. The whole system still sucks, but they aren't screwing people with THIS change. They're screwing us with the whole progressive system in general.
@thekhurg.... Thanks, that does make sense after the initial reduction. ..they still some huge turds though for that crap in the first place.
Eventually you will see that these people are not your friends. They can barely understand why they need to provide you with content at all. They are so ready to windfall profits that they have convinced themselves you are greedy for wanting anything at all in exchange. Decreases Hero cost by 75%. Reduces received campaign credits by 75%. On they also think you are an effing idiot. They basically gave you nothing because if they decease both by 75%... it takes just as long.
It’s all about perception with these guys Make a huge big f***** deal about changing something because of fans and how they are listening yet they counter point it so they are still better off in the end while looking like good people Reviewers have shown they’ve got no back bone and are blindly giving this top marks which it wouldn’t deserve even if it wasn’t riddled with MTs
Sick, isn't it? And they get away with it...
If there intent is to give us enough credits to unlock a certain number of items after the campaign, why not just give them to us. Seriously, just offer cool ass cosmetic items and Star Wars fans will buy them and money will be made, especially with free dlc etc. When gamers feel as though companies are more than giving them their miney’s worth, they have no issue supporting the game. That’s how I am. I will support CDPR and others who respect us. I thought EA was in the right track with dlc. I understand they took a huge hit giving it away, but it allows more ppl to play longer. Simply add cosmetic items for real money, and we would support your hard work. This shit is absurd the way it is. It’s shady and requires deceit to pull off.
Just look at path of exile devs...cant believe that game is free to play. Its insane.
so basically they lowered a few numbers to make it look like they reduced the grind, but then kept the grind requirements proportionally the same? A+, good job EA /s
No, they reduced the campaign rewards only, so you wouldn't be able to unlock those characters just by playing the campaign. Honestly, this makes sense. As long as the multiplayer rewards are the same then the reduction in cost still stands and the campaign thing makes sense. (yes I know, blasphemy, but atleast try to see the logic behind it. It's possible to individually assess things on a case by case basis)
I've tried changing the image, but it's giving me "Server Error".
Insulting our intelligence screw u EA
This can't be true. I just can't believe EA would sabotage their own game like that knowing people are watching their every move with a fine tooth comb. Please someone provide a before and after pic I just can't believe that EA is this petty...
Don't need a pic, EA literally confirmed it themselves.
exactly what cant you believe, this EA GAMES the shitties company to ever exist , look at there recent portfolio need for speed has card based skills , with grinding carpg mechanics to make u go to micro transactions , there next release same shit with battle front 2 , this is the future ea wants and its thanks to idiots who buy micro transaction for things that where essentially cheats in before , from 1998 to 2009 it was basically x o triangle L2 R2 UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT RIGHT X TRIANGLE and boom weapon cash etc now you pay 10 $ a
The douchebaggery is strong in EA.
Darth Vader was 60,000 credits so the 20k campaign reward would give you 1/3 of the cost now he is 15k and you receive 5k which is 1/3 of the cost. So it's a wash BUT it's a lot easier to get 10k more credits than it is getting 40..
Don't speak logic to the haters.
You are getting fooled by EA bro
you were good until the last sentence. The time it takes you to get the items is still the same since they changed the cost and drop rate the same.
Exactly this, EA has you fooled thinking and saying they fixed it just because they moved some numbers around. The thing is the numbers are different but the grind remains the same. They WANT YOU TO SPEND MORE MONEY.
Do you have a source for this "they changed the cost and drop rate the same."? I can only find that they reduced the price of the heros not how many credits you receive in general in game.
It’s proportionally the same, so it will take the exact same amount of time before they reduced the numbers.
“So it's a wash BUT it's a lot easier to get 10k more credits than it is getting 4” Which, by the way should be unlocked from the start or unlocked by progressing in story mode without these god damn credit because this is not a free to play game. But hey, sense of achievement.
Self absorbed clowns determined to find ways of hitting peoples wallets.
Reasons why sensible gamers need to stop pre-ordering and buying games with this nonsense in it. Not even in a sale. Buy second hand if you must, but stop lining the golden pockets of publishers who are not consumer friendly. Don't pay them a penny. Of course, idiots with money and less sense will continue, but will less sales show that they need to stop treating us like cattle... I think so.
they reduced cost of items 75%(due to backlash) just to reduce earnings 75%. yes people EA really thinks we are mindless hivewhales
The sad part, some ppl are... so they gonna get away with this and the game is gonna sell.
There's a reason they have been voted worst company for years lol
Reviews so far mention very little about this meaning we can forget about good honest reviews And EA you are the only company which falls to a low only to go lower Sadly this will sell due to start wars games I think all publishers got together and said we want mt and now we are screwed until gamers actually show some guts
Dropped hero cost 75%... dropped credits 75%.... got it.....
EA " were sorry.....sorry you suck ptw rules"
EA is like you fuckers wanna whine ? Well we will make you guys boycott this game
Wow EA sucks so hard Please people do not buy or support this game
Im guessing this will be the last Battlefront game for a long long while
So after lowering the amount of credit to unlock thing's, is the case now lowering the credits you earn to unlock things? I just heard about all the drama today sorry about my lack of knowledge.
cant say im surprised ... if anything im surprised that anyone is surprised by any shady doings that any of these companies and game devs do nowadays... this is the future of games ... im not a fan but it is what it is and im slowly not gaming by no fault of my own because i cant fucking support game models like this in any way, not just buying the game and not the MT's thats just a BS half measure ...
Wtf, why is everything related to this credits/coins/cards bullsht in games, its seems always in you're face when just trying to enjoy something you've already paid for, smh unbelievable
They thought no one would notice. My friend literally joked "I bet they drop the credits you earn 75% too basically fixing nothing." And they actually did it..............
They have destroyed their own hype. It's hilarious to watch.
I hope the sales are awful.
Typical EA. We've reduced the cost of heroes....shhhh dont tell them about the amount of credits earned. You know theyre being sneaky when they dont mention a change as big as this that is in direct relation to another change theyve made.
And there it is! The next Battlefront bombshell! Flame away internet! Flame away! 😄
