The base is there for performance xp in match via the badges which is nothing new but absent from this game currently.
I would like to hope that this does get a good rebuild, not a tweak here and there but if you want sustained player base who are happy to part with cash, it must allow access from the person who just wants to play, to the person who can drop a couple of bucks here and there and get something, up through to the people that are happy to part with hundreds.
Considering the talent and knowledge of the team I would be blown away if this is purely an “oversight” given how long these models, of which there are great examples, have been around.
This taking the “core” to the “hard” versus other very success titles with battle passes. It will need attention or it will be an Anthem or potentially see a civil case.
Either way we are young in the release process and although I struggle with “beta” releases happily opening the cash shop, I am freaking loving this game. Lets give it a good few months to address the feedback.
<3 stay safe all.
