15,000 credits is actually easy to get if you do the milestones and daily challenges which really aren’t hard at all. Plus playing arcade and the campaign gives you easy credits as well.
@LightningBlade311, that's not the problem. The heroes should be playable from the start. No paywall, period. There is no compromise for this. Any argument placed forth by EA is automatically invalid, by virtue of attempting to defend this practice.
Sorry. I needed to vent. That wasn't at you, it was for EA. Fvck em
@Proactive Citizenry , Devil’s advocate for a moment, but if the heroes were locked behind milestone challenges (like old school fighting games) and not credits, would it have been more “acceptable”?
@LightningBlade311, With no way to just pay and get them without any effort? Yeah absolutely, they would actually represent an accomplishment then
@LightningBlade311, what drunken octopus said. But it's unlikely to happen, because EA can't help itself.
Jesus. It just occurred to me that I will never be able to play a Star Wars game that isn't published by EA. That fact really makes me sad.
@LightningBlade311, Yup, the biggest problem of the loot boxes is that they made the game pay to win. If they were just cosmetics it wouldn't have been the shjtshow it was. But since the characters locked behind a paywall were more powerful than the standard ones, it made the game pay to win. Which is unacceptable for a full priced game.
But he is you just have to be really good to get him right?
@zacharyson, *Trump's voice* WRONG
tbh I'm not too sure, I think its a hellish amount of grinding though?
@Swolekage, I heard it used to be that way but they fixed it, not sure either, I only played it for a couple hours last week and got killed by Darth plenty of times. It looked like you just needed allot of battle points to get him. To get battle points you complete objectives and kill the opposition. Maybe we will get a hardcore gamer to reply with the true answer.
@zacharyson, I'm not a fan of their system, but I will say people way overreacted... Me and my buddy played for like 4 hours and he has Darth and I have Luke. We shouldn't have to try to get those 2 but it's not particularly difficult or time consuming
@Swolekage, only about 4 hours for Darth. And 4 hours for Luke. And they’re the most expensive ones iirc. Luke is the best hero, but imo Darth isn’t the best villain (lamentably)
@zacharyson, not so much good as willing to invest time.
@Tyrellious, yeah but that's post damage control. Before it would have been way longer to get him
@ReeseBobby, nah I played day 1 and got luke. And I kinda blow at the game
@EVILdrPORKCHOP3, release day one or early access day one?
@ReeseBobby, early access, not the beta though. Heard that was garbage
@EVILdrPORKCHOP3, was considering getting it but didn’t due to EA messing everyone about - should I get it now they’ve changed it?
@2807Ollie, depends, do you want to fund further EA antics and risk future rip-offs (the current changes are temporary) for a somewhat decent game?
@ExistentialDread, I agree with this, but I'm weak minded
@ReeseBobby, yeah 16-20 hours a piece. That’s a bit too much
@ExistentialDread, very true and exactly what I was thinking. The boycott continues!
You could get him through a micto transacc
