UPDATE 2: EA has now confirmed that all in-game purchases have been removed from the game temporarily. This means that all in-game items will be earned through progression rather than spending money.
As we approach the worldwide launch, it’s clear that many of you feel there are still challenges in the design. We’ve heard the concerns about potentially giving players unfair advantages. And we’ve heard that this is overshadowing an otherwise great game. This was never our intention. Sorry we didn’t get this right.
