Uh, cards? Does that mean they copied the dumbest part of Battlefront 2?
Also, FUCK YOU, IT'S STILL PAY-TO-WIN IF YOU SELL GAMEPLAY-AFFECTING THINGS REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY'RE ABLE TO BE EARNED FOR FREE. You know the first thing the scummiest pay-to-win games started doing when people complained about exclusive paid advantages? They made those advantages available "for free," IF you're willing to spend dozens of hours grinding one out (all the while competing unfairly with those who paid to get it instantly). That doesn't make it not P2W, it's just a little less P2W because eventually some "free-loaders" (who in this case still had to pay $60 for the game) will catch up. Letting you break out the credit card to skip an unreasonable grind is exactly what people lambasted EA for doing...
So either pay up front to unlock everything, or grind forever to get it. Meanwhile, hope whatever youre going for is not currently OP and/or not something altered by the time you grind for it.
I'd be high pissed if there were a gun or armor in the game that is better than what I have, but I could unlock it by grinding.. meanwhile - Prince Saudi Moneybags just buys everything and has every advantage from the word go.
They are stuck- either every unlockable item is a side grade and equal, and thus not something people might pay for, or the unlockable stuff is OP and this creates a gap.
