The "Most Downvoted Comment on Reddit" Award Goes to… EA

The team is fully committed to listening to our community, continually adjusting the game, and providing even more great Star Wars content over the upcoming months and years of live service updates. Other heroes like Emperor Palpatine, Chewbacca and Leia Organa will unlock at 10,000 credits while Iden will unlock at 5,000.

But that all changed on November 12, when Electronic Arts (EA) made a decision to respond to some user criticism of the forthcoming Star Wars Battlefront II. "We used data from the beta to help set those levels, but it's clear that more changes were needed". Seeing right through the canned response that this is, Reddit users have showered that post in downvotes - at the time of this writing, it's at 388,000 downvotes and still falling. With modes supporting up to 40 players, Star Wars Battlefront II takes fans through a wide range of iconic locations from all three eras: prequel, classic and new trilogy, including new in-game locations such as Yavin 4's jungle canopies, the spaceport town of Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base. In fact, to unlock the likes of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader requires around 40 hours of gameplay to earn enough credit, according to some sources.

Another Redditor has been tracking the loss in revenue for EA using the formula, "downvote total x $60 (cost of the game)" and as of his last update, has the total sitting at $20,724,900.

None of this is enough to sway EA out of forcing players into a tedious grind to unlock their favorite characters, a grind that many commenters feel is created to make players give up and pay real money to get what they want.

Our Star Wars: Battlefront II review-in-progress will go up today.

The trek follows United Kingdom and European shows past year in the wake of the groups 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction. The US singer-songwriter, 27, will kick off the North American gigs with a show in Arizona on May 8, 2018.

It now sits at negative 392,000 points, making it the most downvoted comment in Reddit history.

So, we're reducing the amount of credits needed to unlock the top heroes by 75%. Reddit user TheHotter Potato, who's played the open beta, claims it takes over 2,300 minutes of online play just to unlock one hero. Electronic Arts has the habit of angering video game fans like no other company, often inserting ridiculous monetary systems into their games to squeeze more cash out of players or forcing multiplayer into single player games, often in an attempt to force players to keep playing and to keep spending money.

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. You can, of course, also play it yourself if you subscribe to the EA Access or Origin Access programs on Xbox One and PC, respectively.

Battlefront 2 is now playable prior to its launch on November 17th by way of EA Access, with players having therefore been offered an insight into how its microtransaction system functions.
