If you reached max level in Battlefield V and your Company Coin wallet has been feeling a little light, then I have good news: DICE is finally going to start paying you again.
Battlefield V‘s progression system means that you need in-game currency called Company Coin to not only buy certain weapon skins and character cosmetics, but you also need it to level up your weapons. Company Coin can be earned several ways, but the biggest payout was always from hitting a new player rank. Unfortunately, that meant that players who reached the maximum rank of 50 weren’t receiving any from leveling up, making it near impossible to continue specializing their weapons and vehicles.
Thankfully, DICE is finally letting rank 50 players earn Company Coin again, according to a recent Reddit post from global community manager Dan Mitre.
Mitre states that the issue that was prohibiting rank 50 players from earning CC after matches has been fixed for some players, though other players might not see the fix right away. Additionally, players who have been rank 50 will earn backpay for CC they should have been earning, but DICE is still working on how to implement this accurately and fairly.
While that might sound like good news, some players were questioning whether the lack of CC accrual for rank 50 players was a bug or a planned feature in order to influence players to purchase Battlefield V‘s paid currency, Battlefield Coin, which is expected to launch on January 18th. Doubts surfaced about this being a bug when Mitre stated that DICE is still trying to figure out the proper amount of CC to reward players after matches.
“No offense, but now it sounds like you guys never had any intention of giving us CC and now you’re trying to meet us halfway, so there might still be a perceived ‘urgency’ to buy Boins for cosmetics,” one Redditor wrote.
However, Mitre stated that “definitely not the case. The system was developed from the get-go and was introduced at launch.”
“The issue lied with max rank CC accrual and specific in-game calls not syncing properly with the back-end,” Mitre specified. “A healthy game economy is a fine-tuned balance between grind currency, paid currency, values on items purchased with those currencies, and proper representation of those items in-game.”
In addition to this CC accrual fix, DICE is also working on the game’s next major patch that will, among other things, fix issues with vaulting and buff medic weapons to make them a little more competitive. The developer hasn’t revealed a launch date for this patch, but Battlefield V‘s second Tides of War chapter, Lightning Strikes, is slated to launch on January 16th, so it’s possible that’s when the patch will come through as well.
