Re: Star Wars Battlefront II... it's happening, not that you ever doubted it

Maybe a bit too early to make of this or have a set opinion being it was a Beta....but a article at Polygon.... EA responds to Battlefront 2 loot box concerns

https://www.polygon.com/2017/10/12/1...tar-cards-dice

Crates will include a mix of of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses.
Players earn crates by completing challenges and other gameplay milestones, or by purchasing them with in-game credits or Crystals, our premium currency.
If you get a duplicate Star Card in a crate, you will get crafting parts which you can then use to help upgrade the Star Card of your choice.
And lastly, you have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most Weapons. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.


From IGN, they have a similar article and in it they do state this....

Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes and Victory Poses will all be available in loot crates, purchasable with both in-game credits and premium currency.
In an effort to balance the potential effect of players buying crates, the most powerful items will not be included in crates. Instead, they will be unlocked via in-game achievements.

I played it but didn't like how quick it went...basically on a small timer. I don't know if that's how it will be in the actual game or not but a couple of minutes is useless. I know there are different modes and with the beta you had two choices; one being a Droid in a 10vs10 and the other Darth Maul...really fun with the dual Light Saber Staff where it was a Kill All inside the Palace.
