New Features:

  • Favorites

    • You asked, and we heard you! Starting from this update by tapping on the heart icon in the corner you can "favorite it" a plant and then it will always be at the top of your seed chooser until unfavorited.This should make planting your winning lawn defence quicker!

  • Mastery

    • Take your plants to the next level… literally! With the introduction of Plant Mastery push the power of your plants even further by boosting stats (eg, ability to push through resistances, health boost or damage boost). By increasing a plant’s Mastery, that is a chance to boost your plant in order to lessen the effect resistances on plants as part of Buffz & Bruisez.

    • The higher the Mastery level (1-200) the higher the chance to overcome a resistance.

    • Mastery does not allow you to overcome total zombie immunities.

    • Keep in mind, Mastery is meant to be for the long term. You will not get to max out your plant Mastery over the course of weeks or months (Cheaters, I’m looking at you).

  • Account registration

    • To make life easier in instances where you change devices or lose your game progress, we’re introducing email registration in this latest update.

    • By registering with your email you can now attach your game progress to your email. Advantages are being able to move your progress between iOS and Android platforms, as well as a more streamlined process for technical support.

    • We will be adding more functionality shortly to accounts - stay tuned for more news in future!

Nice new feature with the Favorite plants listed at the top !!


A drawback that I personally find disconcerting is that now it is harder to find all the other plants since the screen locations have changed !!


Any chance you can leave the original placeholder in place and move the Favorites to the top to the page ?


Whenever a 'new' plant is added this happens.  Bringing back Ghost Pepper, Sweet Potato, and Jack o'Lantern are recent examples

Could EA stop engaging in cheating and spinning up forced losses on players after 6 wins ?


That is deceptive, dishonest, and it sucks !

This thread is not the proper place to complain about that but I do feel your pain and understand it from my own experience.


Your plants are not yet strong enough to achieve a long streak in BattleZ without using even more GEMs to keep a streak alive.

I don't get why PVZ2 is the only game where hackerz are welcomed, they created Buff and Bruizes, that was great to limit certain kind of plants to all players. Now with Mastery Plants hackers can bypass this while we play honestly. 
This Patch is amazing, but we still wait the day where you get rid of hackerz completely
