EA Achieves Most Downvoted Comment in Reddit History

EA has responded to a Reddit thread discussing Star Wars: Battlefront II's controversial progression system and their response is now the most downvoted comment on Reddit of all-time.

"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". "The armchair developers on this internet", Everett wrote in a now deleted tweet. He could be right because you can earn a lot of credits through finishing challenges and if you're really good at Battlefront 2 you will probably earn more than 275 credits per match.

Reddit has unsurprisingly fanned the flames and one particular thread which includes a response from EA has now become the most downvoted comment of all time on Reddit.

To quell the outrage, presumably, which has reached such a point that one EA Sports developer claims he has been receiving death threats about it.

"The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes", EA said in justification for the high price of unlocking heroes such as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.

The 40-hour estimate came from this spreadsheet and post in the Battlefront subreddit over the weekend, shortly before Battlefront 2's 10-hour preview went live on EA Access and Origin Access. He provided some clarity about matchmaking before addressing credit earning rates and the hero unlocks. "I paid $80 to have Vader locked?" To unlock them, players will need to spend in-game currency earned from hours of play. TheHotterPotato noted the average Galactic assault match takes 11:09 to finish a game and players earn 275 credits per match on average. We had one progression system in the closed alpha and heard your feedback back then.

"As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch". We will provide more details and updates as we can.

We'll see how DICE tweaks the numbers heading into the game's full launch tomorrow.

The EA/Origin Access trial for Battlefront 2 is now available on Xbox One and PC, giving players access to portions of the solo campaign and the entire multiplayer experience. There's a total of forty trophies in Battlefront 2, including seventeen secret ones.
