"Unlocking a hero is a great accomplishment in the game, something we want players to have fun earning", said executive producer John Wasilczyk from the developer Dice, in a statement.
The whole Battlefront 2 affair started after Redditors calculated that, according to EA's unlock system, players will have to grind for about 40 hours or more to collect enough game credits to unlock special characters like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. In those outings, you paid for the game up front and it came with all the characters already unlocked. With these prices, EA feels that getting the heroes will feel like an achievement and also something accessible for players of all profiles. A day after the iconic gaming studio penned the most downvoted comment on Reddit, miffed gamers are reporting EA has nixed the Battlefront 2 refund button from its site.
EA says that hero costs in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will be lowered ahead of the game's launch this Friday. There will be further updates and changes to improve the game in the over time, it was promised.
"In fact, this Wednesday we'd like you to join us for a Reddit AMA with some of the key leads on our team". The company has now thanked that particular community for its passion. "I think it's great that EA are listening to their community and trying to be flexible, but they'd need to go above and beyond to change people's minds completely".
"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.
"Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can".

Star Wars Battlefront II is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17, which is a few short days away. He said the general feedback around the game-covering its campaign, multiplayer, and more-has been "very, very positive". Its loot crate economy and overall leniency towards players who pay for advantages breaks the online experience in many respects, and will take a lot more tweaking to fix. "We welcome the conversation".
