PTS Update - 7/17/2019

EA Community Manager

Hey Freelancers,


We just put out an update for the PTS. The primary reason for this update was to get in some adjustments we made to the crystal economy. Previously, it would take 1000 small crystals to convert them to one large crystal. Based on player feedback we have cut this amount in half to 500. You'll still earn crystals at the same rate as you did before, but with this change you should be able to acquire items from the seasonal store faster. Below is the link to a survey if you'd like to share your thoughts on these changes (it's the same questions as the previous survey):




Here is a list of some additional changes that were introduced with this PTS update:


  • Economy modification to crystals: large crystal purchase changed to 500 crystals from 1000.
  • Large crystal conversion to small crystals changed from 1000 to 500.
  • Icon and UI updates for Seasonal Store and some cataclysm HUD elements.
  • Arenas and Inversions have been changed to reflect how they will be during the first week of the Cataclysm.
