EA and DICE have announced that they have made changes to crates and progression based on player’s feedback. According to the press release, the beta gave the team a chance to test all of its systems in action and tune things up for better balance. As such, Epic Star Cards, the highest tier of Star Cards available at launch, have been removed from Crates.
Players will need to reach a certain rank to craft upgraded Star Cards, and weapons are locked behind specific milestones. Moreover, class-specific gear and items can be unlocked by playing as them.
EA and DICE will be continuously looking at player feedback to help fine tune and improve this system and others in the game. The teams claimed that they are committed to keeping the community together. It’s also worth noting that all post-launch content will be free.
