    I hope people shit all over this and send EA a message. But what will probably happen instead is they'll buy tons of loot crates while complaining about what assholes EA are for making this total pay2win game.
    Hahahahaha, a message to EA. They've been voted worst company in the US on more than one occasion by Consumerist. They don't give a fuck.

    So just like Duskruin.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    Probably because the same idiots who voted EA as the worst company are the same dumbasses who keep pouring money into their games.

    Money > what customers think

    Duskruin is the one event that is worth playing. All the other events are slot machines. You always get something from DR.

    I’m not sure how easily accessible epic star cards will be, but in my brief play of beta I managed to unlock a few legendary (3 Star) ones and didn’t feel like it’s going to be hugely pay to win.

    Between daily crates and crates with the in game credits, I’m mostly curious to see what that third vip currency is and what will be available for that since it was inactive during the open beta

    I've been blasting rebel scum. If you have Origin Access, you can play the first 3 missions and a bunch of multiplayer right now.

    Just a little more drama on the game:

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/insertc.../#6c892e1c3628

    ... Recently, early access Battlefront 2 players have been doing the math about the current heroes in the game that you need to unlock with Credits. While the game offers a selection you can use from the outside, adding new heroes like Vader or Luke to your roster currently costs 60,000 Credits each.

    To put that in context, at 11 minutes per game and about 275 Credits earned a match, that works out to forty hours of game time to unlock one hero. And that means you can’t spend your Credits on anything else including loot boxes.

    The concern now is that these new heroes will also be introduced at similarly steep prices. Even cut to 20 or 10 hours worth of Credits, it still doesn’t feel like what fans signed up for when DICE advertised “free future content.”
    EA's response on Reddit is currently the most downvoted post in Reddit history (currently at -327k karma):
    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.
