Further on in the post, they addressed the controversies around the game's loot crate systems, stating that "the complete system was not in the beta" and that some things are, perhaps, not as clear as they could be.
"STAR WARS Battlefront II Crystals Pack* Use Star Wars Battlefront II virtual currency Crystals to purchase Crates, giving you a selection of new Star Cards, weapons, emotes, and other valuable resources to continue your Star Wars hero's journey".
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 finished up its open beta only hours ago, and player response is muddied: people love the actual game but not so much its loot box and progression systems. Below you'll find what they listed on their blog.
In an effort to balance the potential effect of players buying crates, the most powerful items will not be included in crates.
Crates will include a mix of of Star Cards, Outfits, Emotes or Victory Poses.
This is heightened by the fact that crates will be purchasable with crystals, meaning the more money players invest, the bigger chance they have at getting more powerful loot. Any duplicate Star Card that you receive, incidentally, will provide crafting parts for upgrading the card of your choice.
EA also promised a deeper progression system than that found in the public beta.
There's great news for you if you were unable to get in on the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 open beta that went live for everyone this past weekend.
Star Cards impact gameplay and are players' major concern. The developer says it's aware of that, though it didn't promise such a mode will be released.
The developer also mentions that voices asking for ways to play the game with the same set of star cards with flattened values have been "heard" even if no implementation was promised. We're reminded that the beta was just "a small piece of what [they're] making" and that EA is "continuing to listen to [players] coming out of the beta". "We will work to make sure the system is balanced both for players who want to earn everything, as well as for players who are short on time and would like to move faster in their progress towards various rewards".
