Here at EA we believe that play and inclusion are ideas that go hand-in-hand. As part of the Play to Give campaign we are coming together with our global gaming Community to celebrate the positive connections we make by playing games and contributing to organizations that share our commitment to building a more inclusive world.

As part of Play to Give, everyone that logs into the game between Friday June 1 and Sunday June 3 will receive an in-game crate that contains:
  • Victory Pose for Finn
  • 500 Credits

You can find out more on Play to Give, and the organisations we’re supporting here.

  • Well, at least with all their servers down, nobody will be able to play anything at EA Play. Should be an interesting time.
  • Sounds pretty cool. Im irritated that I apparently didnt get a level up point for Luke, Bossk, and my Heavy. :(

    Only an American would think that! Many English-speaking countries spell it with an "s". In Canada, either one is considered correct.

    I hope the Finn victory pose is the one I am still missing. If the very first time they give us a hero-related award in the crates since the progression update, they give me one I already have, I will absolutely puke in fury. It would be nice if we could pick our awards, so that we don't just keep getting duplicates. So far, since the progression update, every non-credit reward they have offered me is a duplicate of something I already have. And there is no way to get the things I don't have already.

    I swear, if F8rge posted that they were going to give everyone 10,000 free crafting parts and $60 in cash, there would still be complaints about totally unrelated stuff.

    Anyway, thanks for the free stuff.
    Also:
    We’re inviting players to celebrate Play and Inclusion within our game communities by completing Play to Give in-game challenges that yield special rewards. These challenges run from Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4: Full challenge details can be found on the Play to Give website or in-game – list of participating games include:

    FIFA 17
    Battlefield 1™
    Mass Effect™: Andromeda
    Star Wars™: The Old Republic™
    Madden NFL 17
    Madden NFL Mobile
    NBA LIVE Mobile
    NHL® 17:
    Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 2

    No in-game challenges for SWBF2? I don't play any of the listed games.
    She's so fine, there's no telling where the money went.

    Strange - is the only word I can think of - but thank you.
    Will this be a weekly promotional or one time event?

    Well I'm not gonna play until they fix the progression loss everyone has experienced. I can handle all the other bugs but losing levels on my hero/villain characters is unacceptable. So until that is fixed I'm not playing.
  • What a nifty ol' emote. Thanks EA. By the way everyone is back into Star Wars because of the new movie. Don't give up on this wonderful game.
  • Thanks for the crates but can we get some heros or villains added? What about maps? But thanks.

    Nice to have! But i prefer a game without bugs. Lost my levels and there is still the missing sound in the game.
  • it seems that when I opened the Play to Give crate, the player progression system is now broken (I can achieve points to level up a character or ship, and the experience points are awarded, but level upgrade happens, and no Skill Points to upgrade Star Cards.

    a new bug?

    perhaps I should not have opened that crate...
  • nice thought, but I too would rather have a game without bugs

    please fix EA

    This Play to Give Crate is of absolutely no interest whatsoever while the Rank Regression Scandal is still in situ. How will they actually get away with this at EA PLAY? It IS a real scandal and should be queried heavily at this week's EA PLAY while Disney, Lucasfilm, DICE etc executives are present to witness the furor of very unhappy customers. Really...How can EA expect to meekly show its face while their SWBF2 players worldwide are unable to play the game out of fear of losing all hard earned progression made in a major company product? What should be priority here from EA right NOW is an announcement that the loss of our Class and Hero Rankings has now been fully restored. The losses for me run into the tens of thousands of credits! A 500 credit crate - are they that complacent? I literally cannot play anymore wondering what next will disappear... and any progression made will overwrite the high levels I used to have. ANNOUNCE THE FIX PLEASE.

  • I'm fine with this because Finn is one of the few heroes I'm not terrible with.
  • You must really hate us , EA sports ! We want new starfighter missions , not ewoks or arcade modes! We had encountered loss of skill points , failure to record credits earned and very stupid changes to the progression system ! Now , everyone fights for time in a hero starfighter , instead of playing objectives, making hero starfighters very difficult to get to! We want the old system back !

    It would be necessary to make games where the players with more level can not enter and that the teams are more leveled, as well as in the games of heroes, to exchange the players after a scenario.

    Some of my heroes have lost levels since the last update of the game.

    Another new bug yay.
    At least they are consistent LoL

    For once, I actually did not already have the reward so that was cool.
    Haven't played SA in three days as I am still waiting to hear about the progression fix. I do not want to risk anything on my hero ships.
    Last time they had the issue with the interceptor, I got screwed twice...1st by the bug, then by the fix...

    Jet pack cargo?

    We need original cargo. Jet pack cargo is only good for temporary fun.

    Thanks @F8RGE !

    If I could suggest another worthwhile organization you may want to consider for future partnerships, https://www.ablegamers.org works with people with disabilities so that they can enjoy video games along with their typical peers. They recently partnered with Microsoft to develop the new Xbox accessibility controller.

    Cool! Though we do need that pesky bug that literally shuts down Xboxes when claiming crates to be fixed...

    Hi @F8RGE,

    As part of the play to give I was a player affected by the data loss. You did mention that data has been restored and that it should be back as normal, but this is not the case for me. I lost 2 levels on my Enforcer (23 -> 21), 1 on each of the Officer and Assault (70 -> 69), and 3 levels on Bossk (40 -> 37). I also lost progress on various milestones (namely the Experienced/Novice/Veteran score achievements, as well as hits with Phasma's Staff Strikes (was 11/30 now 3/30), and kills with Iden's Pulse Cannon (was 6/50 now 3/50)) and my overall rank dropped from 50 to 1. My gamertag is Jazza_21SD, I'm from Australia playing on the PS4. Is there any way for this to be restored as I had it roughly 5 days ago?

    Cheers,
    Jazza.
