After the endless complaints from fans about the issues faced in Star Wars Battlefront 2 due to the microtransactions and its loot system, DICE has decided to go forth with a Reddit AMA to clarify things and give a more serious answer to us than the one EA gave. Apart from the adjustments coming to the game’s loot system, the company announced that there are tweaks coming to the Star Wars Battlefront 2 Star Cards and the way their level is increasing.
Reddit user alvabqz asked DICE to comment on the issue many fans are facing with their Star Card levels when they are playing a specific class or hero. His story was that if he wants to upgrade a Star Card that is shared on many classes from uncommon to rare, he has to get more cards on more than one class even though he doesn’t want to spend resources there. This way players that spend currency on Star Cards will finish up their collection way faster even though they are not playing as much.
Overall Star Level doesn’t seem to be an issue here since it’s actually a way to make end game content available only for those who have really worked their way up. Where the issue lies is in the specific class and hero Star Levels, to which DICE could really make a change.
DICE responded the following:
We’ve already started to tweak our existing systems based on the data we’ve seen from our Play First Trial players as well as your feedback. The goal with star card class level requirements, initially, was to make you go wide in the type of cards you get before you go deep in specializing which ones you want to upgrade. That said, we’re hearing loud and clear that you’d prefer a system where playing a class or a character specificially will upgrade its level instead, so we’re looking to make that change as soon as possible.
As it seems, DICE is taking into consideration the fact that their Star Card system may not work as intended. The company intends to find a way to make specific class or hero Star Card levels to be upgraded by just playing what you want, even though more information about it wasn’t included in their answer.
