But EA is incentivizing players to buy loot crates by locking characters behind a gate that can only be unlocked with in-game credits - credits earned from loot crates. EA then maintained that it will be making some adjustments just 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".
On a final note, EA promised that players can expect "changes" as they continue to monitor community feedback.
Following the outrage at Star Wars: Battlefront 2's ridiculous unlock system, Redditors are calling on fellow members to cancel their pre-orders, arguing this is the only way to make their voices heard. This means that you will be matchmade with players with an average performance similar to you and (to the largest extent possible) not against players who are much better than you, whether by having higher rarity cards or by showing higher skill.
Lyft expands to Toronto, moving beyond United States for the first time
No specific launch date was announced but Lyft said it "will be around to help ring in the holidays", presumably before Christmas. Lyft is growing beyond its home market of the USA , with a launch planned next month in Toronto, the largest city in Canada.
Another concerned fan with the handle CellularArrest opined: "They'll milk it for a few weeks". So, rather than have them potentially lose interest as other players do, publishers let them access them early - for a cost.
All heroes can be played in the games offline Arcade Mode and certain heroes will unlock automatically - but to have access to more than half the roster of Star Wars heroes and villains, players must spend in-game credits, which are unlocked by playing the game. They have discovered that it can take almost 40 hours to unlock a single hero, such as Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker, in the game.
In this way, you're not directly paying to unlock the Hero characters; instead, you're paying for the chance of earning virtual currency that can unlock those characters. At 60,000 credits for Vader and Skywalker, that comes to about 40 hours of play, and EA's comment about accomplishment doesn't appear to dispute that.
Based on the calculations by Reddit user TheHotterPotato, unlocking Luke or Vader during the review event would have taken only roughly 6-hours.
Uber approves Softbank's multi-billion dollar investment
The initial price for the tender offer may not be set for more than a week, a person familiar with the matter said. Uber investor Benchmark agreed to drop its fraud lawsuit against Kalanick if the Softbank deal goes through.
Reddit is not happy with EA right now.
"I wonder if Burger King wants to sell me a sense of pride and accomplishment by making me work 10 hours for my fucking fries", one Redditor quipped in response. "I'm sure the prices will be even more egregious when the 'Free" stuff comes along". It has added fuel to an already raging fire and things seem to be going from bad to worse for Star Wars: Battlefront II.
You'll be given a Daily Loot Crate for every different day that you sign into Star Wars Battlefront 2, which is pictured just below.
Benzema: Sex tape affair could be reason for France exile
Karim Benzema does not think he has a chance of ending his France exile as long as Didier Deschamps remains coach. There are some that I come across and it's always good to see them.
