"Making games great comes from regular tuning", writes John Wasilczyk, Executive Producer at DICE. He explained that change will be a constant for Battlefront II as it pertains to changing the in-game economy, with tweaks coming as DICE considers and responds to player feedback. Prices have been effectively quartered, with Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker now costing 15,000 credits as opposed to 60,000, Palpatine, Chewbacca and Leia available for 10,000 as opposed to 40,000 and Iden now available for 5,000. "Based on what we've seen in the Trial, this amount will make earning these heroes and achievement, but one that will be accessible for all players". That's an entire workweek of playing time, on top of whatever money you spent on the game itself and on in-game "loot crates" that provide power-ups for your ship.

How to Use Files Go, Google's New AirDrop-Style File Sharing App
The malware not only steals login credentials but also demands excessive permissions that enable it to send/receive text messages. It's basically an app that lets you manage and share your files, with an added feature that works similar to Apple's AirDrop .
I've seen some debate over how much the insertion of microtransactions should be factored into reviews, or how much they should impact upon a final score, but I feel that Star Wars Battlefront 2 answers that question.
