DICE Owes Me Over 100,000 Credits

Prev1
So I was one of the people affected by the duplicate card bug where credits where not being rewarded back. I had stopped buying cards and opening crates for the time being. I saved up and this patch said in the notes "Fixed an issue where players would not receive credits for duplicate star cards - Players who encountered this issue previously will retroactively be awarded with the proper amounts of credits over time." But yet it only worked for a bit in the first like 3 crates I opened but when I did the regular credits wouldn't get rewarded and then the duplicate credits and and regular credits were rewarded but it took back the credits from the duplicate once I backed out of the cards I just viewed. And they said retroactively it would be rewarded back so, since I got tired of waiting, I opened every saved crate, 80+, and spent 400,000 credits on crates. And no duplicates got rewarded back. I played a few games and waited over night and got back on, played a few more, and still nothing has come back. I roughly estimate I have over 100,000 credits still in limbo somewhere that just disappeared. Not to include credits lost before the patch which was around 20,000.



So looks like the patch didn't fix it. That or it just will eventually come out of limbo in the next day, week, month, year, eventually.

    400K credits?? Lol how can you get so many? I get about 400 per match, and that's a 20 minutes match... To get 400K credits it would take me about 1000 matches, that's almost 700 hours of gameplay :/

    Correct! Which is why those of us that have been hit by this bug are so angry! LOTS of time spent grinding for nothing more than frustration. My hit hasn't been as bad as @Sgt_Fergus but none of us should have to take the hit. Can you imagine the uproar in the community if the devs said they fixed Palp's lightning through walls issue but every match you played, there he was, still torching people through walls? And when everyone started screaming that it was still broken, the dev's response was, "We're aware of the issue." Which is the same **** you had just heard for the past several months? Well, that's what we're dealing with now on the dupe credit issue. Frustration is turning to anger for a lot of us.

    I have to say I never noticed this issue, but that's just me, so... I totally understand you, I think all these efforts are in vain anyway, since they said they're working on a much different progression system, and at that point I think 400K credits won't have a much different value than 10K. So they are "fixing" things just because they cannot leave us without updates, but in the meanwhile they're revolutioning the core system of the game. If that's in a good or bad way, only time will tell

    I believe if DICE had not changed the micro-transaction system at launch, and this bug affecting players, and a lot of people paid actual money. I'm pretty sure there would have been a lawsuit or some type of uproar. I already saw people on the EA Answers forum a month or so ago talking about, back when you still could buy crates, some of these crates they did spend actual currency on with crystal and got nothing back. But like nothing over $100 at least but still. To imagine a whale player doing that and have that bug happen, oh man that would have been news for days. Someone did a rough estimate and said the majority of players affected by this bug they think is around 5 to 10 percent of all players. I think it might be more like 5% or there would have been a much different reaction if 1 out of every 10 players were having this happen to them. But yes, since launch, this has been happening so for it to be over 3 months now its definitely gone from being patient to really frustrating and aggravating. I am trying to complete against players now that are all purple'd out and it really does feel like I am playing against jackals from Halo 2. Assault players are regenerating health almost instantaneously after taking damage every time and getting into cover while I take an eternity to get health back and you can imagine playing with 1 common star card on a hero going against a 3 man villain rush into Naboo's 2nd objective area and having to fight them it's like the first encounter with Elites in Halo Reach on legendary. They come at you like a wrecking back of destruction. So to even keep myself able to play, I took up DICE's claim that they fixed the bug, just to get some of my star cards up. The fix still isn't working from what I have seen but at least my base classes are purple'd out and i have every card unlocked and all classes now can have 3 cards attached. I still can't believe even after spending 400,000 credits that I have not even maxed out 1/3 of all the cards in the game. I mean I only have 2 heroes now with all 3 purples. i would have to essentially do everything i did over again for 6 more months and I still would just barely be scratching 90% finished. That's excluding future dlc heroes and special units and vehicles and their cards.
  • Making it rain! What are you going to do with 100,000 in credits? There is nothing to spend it on. Adding a purple card to your 6th favorite character build is not going to change your life.

    I really wish it would get fixed. I just want to play and be on the same level as the people I'm going against. atleast I ot some purples this time around
  • Same problem here but mine have NEVER worked at all. Never got a single credit from duplicates. Im owed about 100,000 also. This patch broke mare than it fixed.
  • Feels like we're going around in circles with this one. Little to no communication for extended periods, burst of "we're working on it," then more silence. That's why it not being fixed in the 1.2 patch has been so devastating. We know we're probably not seeing any resolution to this for at least five more weeks. Ugh!

  • gotta love ea and dice for this ****... i also have a lot of credits missing for many reason... they just gave me a crate with "sorry this is some credits for the problems" and gave me only 4k... 4 k credits is one **** loot crate... gg dice
  • I am frustrated with the whole situation too. I’m no longer buying crates until this is getting resolved either. I think what frustrates me most is that EA/Dice is aware, told us the day of update they did, and now nothing but cricket silence from them.

  • @Sgt_Fergus - Have you notified EA/DICE about your missing credits? Seems like they would want to make it right. Tell 'em it's no fun having "Most Screwed" status in the game and I bet they even it up for you. Fair is fair. Just sayin'...

    I have, and ya lol i guess so
  • Why didn't you stop when you noticed that the bug wasn't fixed? However, it's very frustrating if you can't upgrade your cards, because you lose credits while opening crates. Btw a devs said that all people will be reimbursed from time to time.

    Devs said that we could continue to open crates because any duplicates would be refunded when the problem was fixed. From personal experience, I have not received and backlog and I continue to not receive credits even though they say it was fixed in the 1.2 patch. I had about 50K saved up when they gave the "green light" to open. I really just want the crafting parts TBH, so I had no problem taking their word and opening the crates. At least I got to level up some cards while waiting for this to actually get fixed.

    Exact reason @Ahsoka_Tano as well as the fact that those that don't have this bug don't understand the frustration. I now have all my classes have 3 purple cards now and the level of difficulty dropped drastically. nothing was more frustrating then people all decked out with purples and were getting heroes within minutes with battlepoint boost cards and were basically running around the map getting ton of kills while I'm doing backflip headshot pulling tricks out of no where just to get a small 500 points. Made fighting against purple players with just 1 uncommon card like facing elite on legendary in halo reach.



    Imagine this and it gives a fair comparison of exactly what it feels like. And people tried to claim cards don't play that huge of a factors... after I have unlocked purples I have been on the top leader boards and running heroes almost every match. It's child's play once you have purples everything is so easy to do that the level of difficulty drops. All these people with purple all this time I was going against were mediocre and when I got purple officer I was getting hero within about 2 minutes or less and then running the entire match as a purple'd out hero for the rest of the game. I am averaging about 70+ kills a match now. I mean it was funny hearing how many people tried to deny this but they just wanted it to be a secret lol I'm wrecking with less effort then it took as a 1 common card trooper. So if spending all those points, though loosing 100,000 but supposedly will eventually get back to me, i'd rather do it as i was getting burnt out fast as it felt like i was putting about 3x the effort that most players were doing. getting 10+ kills, buffing teammates, spotting, healing, etc and people were doing far less and were running palpy in about less than 5 minutes with half the kills and barely assisting their teammates. It was just not fair and annoying because they game worked for them but i am still bugged so when they said it is okay to open crates all points would retroactively be returned, i took their word on it. though since release, nothing has come back. and now if i do open crates. the noticeably now is that i do get the credits added from duplicates now, but flat credits don't. But the second i back out, the flat credits get rewarded back and the credits from duplicates get taken away. that's the only difference. and it only happens withing the first 2 or 3 crates. any crates after that just go back to no credits from duplicates and just flat credits.

    If you knew the frustration you would understand not wanting to wait anymore. it's been 3 months of playing. i just want to finally play and have fun and not be frustrated because my game is bugged and all these people not affected are having a breeze while I got to play halo reach on legendary feeling when I play this. The challenge is fun in all in battlefront 2 for a short bit, knowing their Bossk or Boba just got smoked by a level 6 specialist or what not. But that get's annoying fast when you want to earn credits and get to play special units, vehicles, starfighters, heroes. And as more people rank up, i was getting left behind and about ready to quit playing entirely. That was the only way to keep me playing. I know smoke people with relative ease. I mean just look at me playing against everyone in a jetpack cargo match when the odds are now even on player stat. No cards to save them now.

  • 99% sure your full of yourself :D

  • Still not fixed, new patch this morning had nothing to do with it, still no credits and no desire to play, going to another non ea game to enjoy myself, cause that doesn’t happen in BF2
  • Still not fixed, new patch this morning had nothing to do with it, still no credits and no desire to play, going to another non ea game to enjoy myself, cause that doesn’t happen in BF2

    i just don't get how, out of every game that does the loot crate system with duplicates rewarding back, this is the only game that is having the issue and to still not be working after 3 months. I mean they said they are going to be bringing back microtransactions, paid loot boxes, in the following months. I don't see how they can. there are a few at pre-launch that paid for some loot crates and didn't get credits back but supposedly most spent less than $100. If the re-enable it with this bug still going and whale players start buying these crates and spend lots of real cash, there is going to be a real problem if they get affected by the bug. I even tried with crystals on opening a crate and it happened so it's not just opening crates with credits. this can happen with players that pay with real world currency.

    The loot crate system works perfectly in games like Gears of War 4. Why couldn't they simply copy and paste? 2 hours of playing Horde mode would land you at least 4-6 crates and you could level up competently with other players.

    Waaaaayyy too many duplicates pop up. You should be guaranteed at least 2 cards that are not in your inventory on a 4-card loot box.

  • Did you already get your credits back from DICE?

    nope lol haven't seen a cent back. i get off and when i get back on i haven't seen the numbers change. i found out someone says they now have 240,000 missing. and when march 21 rolls in, those credits, even if i do eventually get them back, will only be useful for cosmetics only. so far they said there is no update on the issue. so it looks as though if i don't use them up now, and lose more from doing so, i will only get to use them for cosmetics, if they ever return to me which after several months i feel that it's not happening.

    that's the status at this point.

    well before this upgrade kicks in, the final count is now close to 200,000 credits lost, not sure to be exact. I had to use all the credits up anyways after 1.2 patch as it will now be all cosmetics after tonight anyways. At least i have about 50 skill points worth of crafting parts saved but that does annoy me that all that work and it looks like my credits will not ever be coming back to me. i even used up all my crystal too, since i won't need it since it will only be for cosmetics only and i can get that with credits and all that stuff gets added in in April. Bust ya so i'm about 2nd highest now to this guy, mysweetescape13, who says he lost more than 234,000.

    @Sgt_Fergus I’m pretty sure I’m well over 100k. Prolly lost about 25k today doing my spending spree to get as many crafting parts as I could before the patch. Extremely frustrating. At least they communicated this week about it. It’s been weeks since EA/Dice has said a peep about it to us lost credits players. Not sure they can get us all reimbursed.
