Star Wars Battlefront 2 AFK fix coming to stop players farming credits

Star Wars Battlefront 2 AFK fix coming to stop players farming credits

There were very likely a large number of people on the Battlefront 2 team who cared whether the game was fun to play, but unfortunately they didn't have any control over the game's loot boxes or economy.

Ironically, Jorgensen expressed distate for such microtransactions and payment models in video games. "And I would say if we're not making some mistakes along the way and learning from them, that's when you should worry about us". Until the Battlefront II controversy derailed their momentum, EA was having a great 2017, spurred by the continued success of Federation Internationale de Football Association and Madden Ultimate Team and their catalog of popular mobile games. The feature - which would let players gain access to late-game weapons early on, leading to huge imbalance between paying players and standard players - was originally announced around the time of the game's beta testing phase, and the controversy reached a boiling point shortly before the game's official launch, leading to EA hastily removing the feature from the game. Darth Vader in white probably doesn't make sense-and you probably don't want Darth Vader in pink.

"The one thing we're very focused on - and [Lucasfilm is] extremely focused on - is not violating the canon of Star Wars".

"It's an wonderful brand that's been built over many, many years, and so if you did a bunch of cosmetic things, you might start to violate the canon, right?" But coming into it, it wasn't as easy as if we were building a game around our own IP where it didn't really matter. Further outcry over the unlock requirements for fan-favorite heroes like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader forced more changes. I think the challenge, and it's one that everybody's facing in this industry-running live services requires tuning and tweaking, and sometimes you don't get things right the first try, once you put it in the hands of hundreds or thousands or millions of players.

While Jorgensen couldn't give a time frame as to when microtransactions would be turned back on in Battlefront II, it's clear EA is still committed to the idea. "We think the time has come for the industry to collectively establish a set of standards for microtransaction implementation, both to fix damaged player perceptions and avoid the threat of regulation". "It is created to make you spend more money after buying". So if you did a bunch of cosmetic things, you might start to violate the canon. "But Star Wars fans also may want to tailor things - different color Lightsabers, things like that - so you may see something like that".
