EA Responds To Star Wars Battlefront II's 40 Hours To Unlock Characters Controversy

"The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.

As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we’re looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily basis, and we’ll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via gameplay.

We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.

Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can."

We see right through the BS, Ea.

Been fun so far and shockingly... haven't spent a dime on a loot box.

I feel all this loot box crap will lead to another game crash in very soon.

Eventually loot boxes will be required for almost anything.

Hell even Rockstar is going to implement them now.

The gaming industry will falter and flatline if they think this level of greed will go unquestioned. While they shape their games to maximize profit, they've also hardened my resolve to not buy games I'd normally be on the fence about. Gone are the days where I go in with an open mind and clear heart.

Anything associated to the developers/publishers that follow this practice, officially die upon announcement.

They can spin their empty frail words all they want. I see through it.
