We have to admit having to pay to unlock hero characters is a joke and they should unlock as and when available throughout the campaign missions or something like that, like an achievement process. We are fed up with all these money making schemes and wish developers would just make a game with expansions not short crap add-ons and fillers like loot boxes, skins and other crap.
But this is EA Statement after this comment from a miffed off user “Seriously? I paid $80 to have Vader locked?”
“The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.
“As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the open beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we’re looking at average per-player credit earn rates on a daily bases, and we’ll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding and of course attainable via gameplay.
“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.
“Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.”
