Publisher Electronic Arts has been adamant that nothing about Battlefront II is set in stone: even EA CFO Blake Jorgensen says the company made a few mistakes regarding monetization, and says the company will learn from these errors.
While the credit bump seems like a "the rich get richer" move, all Star Wars Battlefront 2 players should have a better opportunity to unlock the content that they want.
The latest Star Wars Battlefront 2 update speeds up progression in a big way. EA managed to receive the "honor" of the most-downvoted comment in Reddit history following its attempts at smoothing things over. YouTube channel BattlefrontUpdates did a quick test of the update and found that their reward following a match was slightly over 600 credits - before this change, a competent player could expect roughly half that amount.
"These are only some initial steps toward making much larger changes", EA's blog promised.
As part of the new updates, the end-of-round payout will increase across the board, but especially for players who finish atop the scoreboard. There's also changes to credits earned in Arcade mode, and even the daily loot crate awarded for logging in.
"It's been made clear that you were hitting the Arcade Mode Credit cap faster than we expected, so we wanted to alleviate that by increasing it to 1500 Credits", according to the post.
Lastly, daily log in Loot Boxes will include way more crafting parts so you upgrade the way you want. Crafting the Star Cards you want will help make sure you're progressing in the direction you want, and we absolutely wantto empower that. In addition Finn and Captain Phasma will be available soon as well as the Crait map in Galactic Assault, and D'Qar in Starfighter Assault. Iden Versio's campaign will continue on December 13th in the Resurrection chapter which charts the rise of The First Order.
