3. Holofeed

  • Game Update 5.1.1 was deployed on Tuesday.
  • It was clarified that CXP and XP have a 3.5 multiplier applied to all rewards, which will continue until Game Update 5.2 arrives in late March or early April.
  • While the same multiplier was intended to be applied to Requisition rewarded from GSF, it’s currently only doubled; this will be changed to the intended 3.5 multiplier in Game Update 5.1.2.
  • BioWare is investigating a way of disabling the effect of the multiplier on regular pre-70 XP for those who don’t want to level too quickly.
  • There are more changes to the rewards from Galactic Command coming in Game Update 5.1.2.
  • Following last week’s earnings call, Electronic Arts have submitted their quarterly report (10-Q).
