Bad Star Wars Battlefront 2 post is now Reddit's most downvoted ever

The reduction means that Luke and Darth, for instance, will cost 15,000 credits instead of the previously-announced 60,000 credits; Emperor Palpatine, Chewbecca, and Princess Leia will go for 10,000; and Iden Versio, the star of the Battlefront 2 campaign, will be 5000. Those loot boxes, combined with a new unlock system for heroes in which characters are acquired with in-game credits, has attracted no small amount of controversy in the run-up to release.

Consequently, some changes have been made.

In fact, this Wednesday we'd like you to join us for a Reddit AMA with some of the key leads on our team.

While the game doesn't launch until Friday, a brouhaha erupted over the weekend after a player who had early access to the game (via EA's Access program) published data to Reddit which suggested it would take an average of 40 hours of time spent playing multiplayer to earn enough virtual currency (60,000 credits) to unlock a top-tier hero character like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. Now, the company's contrived excuse for Battlefront II's gameplay mechanics has become the most downvoted comment in Reddit's history. And we continue to make adjustments based on your feedback as the game launches worldwide this week. Yep, that's likely a separate 40 hours you'll have to commit to earning in-game credits.

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. While I've enjoyed what I've played thus far in EA Access, the looming presence of its loot boxes blemish the overall presentation, and it now serves as a reminder that at their worst microtransactions aren't just unappetizing side dishes in a three-course meal - sometimes they spill out onto your dessert and make that taste a bit awful, too. For those of you that don't want to have anything to do with Origin, trials, or EA at this moment, you still may want to have a look at the videos we recorded below.

Since the start of the project, listening to fans has been important in making sure Star WarsBattlefront™ II is the very best experience for all of you.

To be fair, outside of all the talk surrounding locked heroes and loot boxes, Battlefront II is actually a pretty great game. One Reddit user responded by saying: "Locking iconic characters behind credit walls that will take dozens of hours to get one is just insane, especially when I am willing to bet you have tons of heroes planned which will be behind similar paywalls?" We welcome the conversation.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 drops you right into the middle of some huge and hectic Star Wars battles from across the series.
