Star Wars Battlefront II Grind Complaints

This now-locked thread on reddit shares more pre-release player dissatisfaction with Star Wars Battlefront II, kicking off a series of complaints about the upcoming game's grind (thanks ASLayerAODsk). The original poster says they will seek a refund for their eighty-dollar Deluxe Edition since it will still require unlocking characters (specifically Darth Vader in this case). A subsequent thread notes that the response from the EA Community Team has inspired a reddit record number of downvotes for suggesting players should take pride in the grind. Here is the post, which has well over a quarter-million downvotes, and counting:
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 basis, 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.

This is literally the reason WOW turned into a crappy game. Too many lazy, entitled "children" who don't want to work for things they want. Remember how hard it was to obtain a Jedi class in Star Wars Galaxies, or how hard it was to complete Naxxramas in vanilla WOW, or trying to obtain a legendary in GW2?

I would +1 this a thousand times.
