EA responds to a tweet from Andrew Reinder, executive editor of Game Informer, concerning yet another change to the abysmal credit system of Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Excuse and excuse, EA. I'm sorry, but it's already too late.
In the past few days, I've witnessed EA scramble more than I have seen them do for the entirety of last generation. I wonder if they ever come to the conclusion that constantly throwing PR at this, trying to justify their tactics in the process, is just not working, and maybe realize that the community aren't idiots.
EA with your BS at it again.
its a good strategy: target 300%, start at 800%, keep lowering it bit by bit and see how much you could get away with, they win either way and we get screwed. STOP....BUYING....EA GAMES
except Live, Live is well done, way better than 2k in the MT arena
EA you did it because of the backlash
But the time it takes the same time to unlock everything, nothing changed
Oh EA, generally when you receive criticism you don't do the opposite and make the need for the P2W worse. At this point I think they are trying to torpedo this game harder than WB did with Shadow of War.
How did they make it worse? They dropped all hero prices 75%.
In doing so they also subtly (and without speaking about it - until being caught) reduced the credit reward for completing the campaign. So what was initially 20,000 credits was slashed into 5,000. They just can't have people easily obtaining a hero... No. We need to grind and be "proud" of our accomplishments. *Cough* While others throw money at it and destroy others in the multiplayer aspect. Well I say we, but I sure as heck won't be buying this garbage. Visually beautiful, but it's rotten at its core.
@Chaos Bruh, they did that because the campaign reward was to unlock Iden, the main character, who was priced at 20k and now after the update is only 5k. So the reward scaled down to what she is worth after the update.
You are seriously blind. Are you seriously defending the abuse system in AAA games ?
@UCForce I"m not supporting anything, I don't buy MT's, I'm just not a whiner about optional shit.
its a TRAP! 2 reason 1st~they will look good and its like they're listening to the fans 2nd~once you unlock those heroes you'll be tempt at buying/pimping him or her out
3rd~you let EA rapes you and take all your money.
This just in! EA Rape Whistles are being sold at the shop on EA's website. $20 a pop
Hahaha love it
Lol nice try EA 😂😂
I love the response tweets lol. Theyre a joy to read.
This game blows. Wheres the stats?
To make seem like they changed stuff but didnt really because they also cut rewarss by 75%
No they didn't. The only reward they cut 75% was what you earn after the the campaign and that's because they give you enough credits to buy Iden the main character from the campaign. She was 20k before, but now only 5k so they lowered that reward to 5k to keep with her unlock price. Match rewards have all stayed the same and I can confirm that.
Based on this and your other replies above, I don't think you get it. Remove Iden from the equation. You get less credits period. You still have to grind a questionable amount of hours just to unlock one hero you want, and that's not even touching the thousands of hours to complete star cards. This is a typical strategy found in free to play games so people feel more inclined to buy their progress instead of playing. Only difference is this ain't free to play. It's full retail. And the people who don't think and buy into it are only hurting everyone and the industry moving forward. This whole approach is catching on way too quickly, and games are potentially going to a very different experience in a few years.
No, they should keep that in campaign. EA is beyond worst than other publishers. But people like you still blind by EA greed.
De plane boss!! De plane.
Maybe controversy is a good advert for them. As soon as they reduced hero prices, they pulled another fast one by slowing the points process and campaign credits. They knew it wouldn't go un-noticed.
“....In addition to this, it has been noted that the game has a time-based cap on rewards while in Arcade mode. Once you hit the cap, you have to wait 14 hours.” I hate time locks in games. Why should I be penalized for doing well? Why EA....so you can sell me some timer unlock dlc?
Because folks are going off.
You need to pay over $2000 to unlock everything.
Because they still want to rob you blind.
