You have to level to 5 just to get a second card slot and 10 I believe for the third.
You gain ranks through playing, even things you do not play will level as you go.
You also if I am not mistaken get a crate per day just for logging in.
Also if I am not mistaken the best items (legendary or whatever the label is in this) can't be had from paid boxes.
I'm still getting it, it sucks, but I put 150+ hours into the first on PC and I'm probably going to do the same here, I really enjoyed my time in the 10 hour early access after I figured out that I was supposed to be crafting cards to level up each class.
That is Assault ONLY.
Same for Heavy, Officer, etc.
Daily crate gives 125 credits and 5 scrap give or take. Trooper pack costs 4k credits. Trooper pack is the only place to get cards that level up your troopers.
EDIT: Crafting a card is 40 scrap. Upgrading it once is 80. For reference.
By DICE/EA not implementing the crafting materials for duplicates they are essentially making people lose out on a TON of credits. How the system is currently designed you're spending 2200-4000 credits to then get a fraction of those credits back when you inevitably start getting duplicates(200 common, 400 green, 800 rare). I've watched some "unboxing" videos to get a sense of the situation and people were getting multiple duplicates before even reaching their 10th crate. After that it's at least a duplicate every other crate. Which again incentivizes you(if you want to be efficient) to just save your credits for heroes since they won't just disappear for a fraction of what you just paid and use Real Money to purchase crates. It's exceptionally dastardly.
Really disappointed by the news about how much play it takes to unlock certain heroes. I hope they'll modify that over time. Otherwise, it seems like the campaign and multiplayer are solid fun and I can't wait to dive in! I just won't spend additional money on in-game transactions. Now I just need to finish up some other games before friday!
I think the Jedi Grind in OG SWG was more bearable, and rewarding, than this. On second thought, it was by far more rewarding than this.
I finished the 10 hour trial and about 8 hours of that was multiplayer and I have the three card slots unlocked for the four trooper classes and the fighter craft and a second slot for mah boi Kylo, maybe for some other things I don't play as as well, I haven't checked.
I am right about Trooper pack being the only place to get cards (without crafting).
You don't get much scrap, so don't expect to be crafting like crazy. You also don't get scrap for dupes. You get 200 credits for a duplicate starcard.
What makes this whole micro-transaction thing more frustrating is how easily EA can fix it. Just release the version reviewers are playing now? Wouldn't that be a big step in the right direction?
Which is funny when you open a starfighter box and get an officer card, lol
I might cave but we’ll see, I don’t have a pre-order as of now so I have the rest of the day to decide.
I really hope EA/Dice actually tweak progression to be reasonable because I enjoyed the base game. Just got irritated at the RNG of progression.
No way in hell am I buying it now.
Gonna Redbox this on Friday just for the campaign. Not even gonna touch the multiplayer
What definitely helps though are the crafting parts you always get, that's basicaly how i unlocked all those trooper slots.
My brother is having a problem with the preload of the deluxe edition. When trying to download it, it says he already bought the game (he did) but can't see the icon in the main menu of the PS4. Any way to fix this?
this aint like a final boss game design choice that they can part with if the community has a problem with it, no, they want this, alot, and they're gonna get it regardless of what people say to them
Then you have your online rank, which is a general rank completely separate of Card Level. So to unlock extra card slots you need to unlock more cards for each class. eneral Online rank only enables you to use higher rarity cards. To use/upgrade some cards you will need to achieve certain online rank level + certain card level.
but thats not how it works in BFII,
while you're spending tens of hours unlocking Vader, YOU ARENT ACHIEVING ANY PROGRESS TOWARD ANY OTHER UNLOCKS OR PROGRESSION, you are focusing 100% of your time and savings just to unlock that one champion, and then when hes done, YOU HAVE TO DO THE EXACT SAME THING FOR EVERY OTHER CHAMPION YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH
if you want to buy loot boxes and upgrade your arsenal WHILE you're saving up for vader, it will take you probably twice as long to get him, you cant just saying "i have to play the game for 30 hours to get vader", its more like "i have to play for 30 hours AND give up 30 hours worth of arsenal upgrades in order to play as vader"
unlocks in Battlefield II are CONSECUTIVE, NOT CONCURRENT
Is there a good article or post somewhere that explains exactly what this uproar is all about? I see it takes a long time to unlock heroes? plus loot cards? just curious what is going on and I can't seem to find a good place to spell it out.
Edit: I see the other thread. I will go read that.
Keep voicing your concerns everyone! If we can change this game, it'll send a message to other devs/pubs that we aren't going to just bend over as games become more and more littered with this design philosophy.
I've got quite a lot of scrap. The only limit I have to fully upgrading my assault cards right now is overall game rank....not sure scrap is a problem.
I just hope it’s fun I will ignore all the other crap and just play.
really hoping that all the noise around loot boxes will get them to change some of those point values...the grind is absurd the way it looks to be currently
I’m done with EA. The only reason I’ll dabble in this game is because Sony denied my refund request a month ago (that shitty policy is a different story altogether) but i won’t spend a cent in battlefront and won’t be buying anything more from EA.
Between this disaster and their crappy testing of the switch waters with a gimped Fifa port....they can go pound sand.
Yeah, I've been turned off from this game. I'm passing. I haveother games anyway.
Was really hyped for this but the microtransaction junk put a stop to that fast. Have it digitally on PS4 otherwise I think I'd be waiting. The early access was a ton of fun on PC, but the crate shit really puts a damper on things. Pretty bummed out over this whole debacle.
well this is the opposite, they're taking away content in order to incentivize someone to give them money,
its completely ass backwards
It's official thread so I guess I can drop it here...
Love the game but ready to flag all the damn elite/good players for cheating. EA/DICE really needs to segregate the elite and not so good gamers into different matches. Sick of only getting 1000 or 2000 points match in galactic assault
Are the graphics better then in the Beta?
Inadvertent double post
Love the title.
Overall, it look really damn good. Some maps are certainly more impressive than others but the standard is pretty high.
