that's not true at all
He's close enough. You can spend $80 on the limited edition and Vader is still a locked character and it was downvoted 678,000 times (Officially the site's most hated comment). The price of Vader and Luke, easily the two top characters, were set at 60,000 credits which would take the average player 40 hours of gameplay to unlock just one of them. Also the way their card system was set up for this game, it was geared towards you using your credits to get the cards or lootboxes to further your current character and then spend the bigger money on unlocking the clearly desired characters.
The company has since responded with a 75% cost reduction on some of the top characters. Luke and Vader are still pretty ridiculously priced but Leia and The Emperor are reduced to taking only a few hours to get. I understand the company is going to do what they can to maximize their profits from the game but you'll lose consumers if you make the reward system become a full time job. There is no fun in that.click here for link
