Many users were criticizing EA for implementing a horrible loot box system in order for you to progress in Star Wars Battlefront 2. Before the game’s launch though, some changes are being made.
EA posted on the official website that they have improved the progression system in Star Wars Battlefront 2. Basically, higher tier Star Cards will now be available through crafting. They will not be hidden in loot boxes.
You will also need to reach a certain rank before you can start crafting Star Cards. Ranking up allows you to attain better Star Cards. This means spending lots of money on Loot Boxes won’t be so “pay-to-win”.
Weapons and progressing your class type are also obtained by simply ranking up. Again, progressing by actually playing the game is the best way to go. Hopefully more publishers and developers do this. Loot boxes have been an unwanted feature for AAA games for far too long now.
