    We are aware of this issue, and are working to have this fixed within an upcoming update. We cannot say much more than that at this point in time, I would, however, suggest that people avoid doing this in the game, it goes against every positive experience you can have within the game.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused by this, we'll provide a clearer update when we can.
    I like how you say in an “upcoming update”

    Not the next update

    Which obviously goes to show it is not really something you are that bothered about or easy to fix

    Thanks for the feedback. Good work.
  • I'll just quit if it happens again. They have said before that they dont care about making money off Crystals. Leaving this issue unchecked is further proof of that.
  • there is some glitch that allows you to get more bp. i was on endor and a guy had two kills and 305,000 bp and on starkiller after my first death another guy had yoda. when i looked at the leaderboard i saw that no matter what they did they were constantly gaining bp. fix this dice!!!!

    I don't understand this. Me n my buddy tried to confirm this is a real thing, and we couldn't replicate it so.... Not sure that it is a thing.

  • Its ridiculous. Whenever i see an exploiter now i'll be sure to leave the match. Its not fun at all...

    Fix this ASAP.
    I’ve just been playing and every match has had at least 1 player on each team doing it

    Looks like it’s becoming more widespread now

    Don’t worry though as there will be a fix SOON
  • It surprises me DICE isn't EXTREMELY WORRIED about a glitch that gives loads of free credits to those who got the points so they can buy all skins without paying any real money.

    When people discovered how to unlock paid skins before they were released, DICE was quick to patch that.

    Their reasoning is beyond me

    Would be a good punishment for those that exploit this to have their accounts rolled back to the day before Geonosis/Obi update, and a temp ban that way they gained nothing. I Despise exploiters/cheaters.

    how about Rolled Back to Level 1

    :D

    Who? The players doing the glitch or the (sometimes random) person receiving the benefit of it.
    Hands might be tied on punishment on this one.

    bruh how can you put something in the game and then tell us not to use it? how long does it take to just fix how many points someone can accumulate?

    A BUG in spawn screen allows for a player to continuosly spawn on the same squad mate over and over again.

    Each time a spawn happens, the squad mate who was targetted by the glitcher to spawn on gets a few points.

    Repeating this hundreds of times allows people to get millions of Score Points in one match

  • Please move this to the right area if it is wrong. I am seeing people with 100,000 plus battlepoints and 0 kills. It is every match now! I play on xbox and it is the most ridiculous thing I have seen. Please patch whatever glitch these people are using. I am sure this complaint has happened before, however, the more people complain about it perhaps the quicker it is fixed.

    We can't wait that long. Remove the squad system if you can't fix this glitch cause it's breaking the game.

    Sorry for the typo before, stupid phone. No, it was ps4.

    Your name looks familiar I think I was playing with you last night/morning

    My screen name is the same on ps4 as the forums. Played quite a bit yesterday, I need to pay closer attention to the names. Hard to miss yours if it's the same as here.
  • Think DICE had to delay some kind of update for BFV, so seems like there main focus is that. Then maybe they address this issue.

  • I don't know if the devs understand how gamebreaking this glitch is. Honestly if they can't fix it killswitch the squad system.

  • It would make sense to switch on Heroes unleashed until DICE/EA can fix the problem. It would help mitigate the problem somewhat.

  • This needs a hotfix immediately, it can't wait till January or even the end of this month.

  • Game breaking glitches/bugs have never really been a motivator for the developers to do anything. Be different if MTX systems had issues, you bet that would be remedied with haste
  • if emperor op merited a kill switch I would think this is even more of a problem

    Too risky.

    I don't care. They should be stripped of everything. Whole reset. Or perm ban. Good riddance of those rodants who cheat.

    They'll be able to tell who exploited it and those who did not.

  • I hope they get banned or that their troopers/heroes and cash gets resetted to zero.
  • It's definitely real. Saw a General Grievous on Hoth last night sitting in a cave in the back of the map while we were trying to take phase 2. Had another couple players with him and about 250k points with only 2 kills. The points didn't stop either.

    Tutorial videos for this bug are already online. It's spreading like wildfire.
  • And there won't be repercussions for those intentionally exploiting this glitch. So yeah.
    Don't click unless you want to know the truth....

    Well, since we can't get the full fix, removing the score bonus is a good short term solution to at least fix the exploit.

    That explains the slowballing at least, what a shame. Should've kept loot boxes after all.

    You got to be joking right?

    Your basically thanking them for trying to fix something that they broke and not only that have no idea if and when it will be fixed

    I mean come on

    No, I’m not joking. While I understand that this may be “game breaking” for some, it’s of little consequence to me. Everyone knows what’s happening and their inflated score means nothing, other than to identify the guilty party as a tool. I play to have fun and while my score does matter, it’s not the end all be all. If someone wants to spend the entire match just clicking spawn over and over for a buddies sake, fine. All they are accomplishing is to take themselves out of the match.

    I said thank you due to the informative and timely response to the issue.

    Good work was with this in mind. I’d already figured as much.

    While I do have some issues with this game, I generally don’t whine and complain to much by nature. It’s not my speed. There are plenty of folks around here who thrive on it so I just leave that to those who are more suited to it.

    I'm sure it will get worse in the short term now that it will be fixed in about a week. everyone will try to get as many pts as possible before the well runs dry. I'll still play normally but at least we know what to expect.
  • Another week?

    With the amount of points I'm seeing in a single match, a week is plenty of time for all these noobs to finish maxing out everything.

    Oh well, I'll be in HvV and SA until the 12th, I guess...
