Following the recent controversy over EA's handling of loot crates and the progression system in Star Wars Battlefront II, EA is rolling out some of the first changes meant to address player concerns. The adjustments are just the start, EA says in a new blog post, but they should work to increase the credit haul for players.
The biggest boon to is players is an overall increase in end-of-round credit payouts. And while the number of credits rewarded to everyone is going up, the top players on each team will see an even bigger boost. That's in addition to an increase of the daily credit cap in Arcade Mode, tripling it to 1,500 credits per day. Daily login crates will also now include more crafting parts than before, EA says.
You'll notice the change right away when you log in. Crafting the Star Cards you want will help make sure you're progressing in the direction you want, and we absolutely want to empower that. This should help you get where you want to go faster when it comes to crafting and upgrading.
These changes are rolling out now to everyone with an update. And for players hoping for more, EA says that these are "only some initial steps toward making much larger changes." This follows EA's choice to drop micropayments altogether ahead of Star Wars Battlefront II's full launch after the fierce backlash from players over the progression system. If EA's latest update is anything to go by, expect bigger changes to hit in the future.
