That's just EA's standard reply when they screw up.

g0ggles, Hah!

While I appreciate the response, I don't understand how they could make such a mistake. It's like when Nvidia said it was a mistake they released the GTX 970 as a 4GB card with all of it working as advertised. Battlefront II's loot and progression system has likely been in development for years. The idea couldn't have been a last minute addition. They planned it from the very beginning, knowing it would hurt the game and its customers. They surely knew full well what they were doing. If they didn't, they shouldn't be making games. Similarly, I firmly believe Nvidia knew full well what was going on, and if they didn't, they shouldn't be making or selling anything other than fire wood to people with oil burners.

Aye, there is no way in hell that EA didn't plan it from the offset. Same with Nvidia. They both knew what they were doing from the word go and are only "sorry" because they got caught.
I would say this response is just to butter up Disney since there were rumours about them pulling the Star Wars licence from EA entirely

I would rather believe a politician before EA and all politicians the world over are paid liars.
