Blizzard Taking Jabs at EA's Battlefront II and its Controversial Progression System

Star Wars Battlefront II

Star Wars Battlefront II

While the tweets don't directly mention Star Wars Battlefront II in any way, the reference to the game is quite clear given the recent community backlash.

Star Wars: Battlefront II launches for everyone this Friday, November 17, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The game without any of the extras is available for pre-order for between £49.99 and £69.99 in the United Kingdom, which many felt meant there should not be additional payments for the most popular Star Wars characters.

The worst part of the game is this: You are limited on credits earned in Arcade mode.

The post explained that the rule was meant to "provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes". Unfortunately for developer studio DICE, EA's defense of their decision to lock heroes behind a points wall became the most downvoted comment on Reddit in history. "Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader will now be available for 15,000 credits; Emperor Palpatine, Chewbacca, and Leia Organa for 10,000 credits; and Iden at 5,000 credits", Wasilczyk detailed in his announcement.

"There's been a lot of discussion around the amount of in-game credits (and time) it takes to unlock some of our heroes, especially Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader", reads a new blog post.

Users have rallied against this treadmill that many have alleged to be EA's way of pushing players to spend real money via microtransactions to unlock in-game content like these.

EA says the number of credits required will now be reduced by 75%.

"Star Wars Battlefront 2" is not lacking for media coverage less than a week before launch, although most of these have been negative over the past few days. This includes online multiplayer and three campaign missions.
