Making money from free-to-play games is never easy or free from controversy, and Apex Legends is no exception. Developer Respawn recently made the decision to lessen the grind of the game’s latest battle pass after a bevy of fan complaints rocketed to the top of the game’s subreddit.

Or, as one top post on the game’s subreddit put it: “Proud to announce that after all 5 daily challenges, 20,000 xp, 3 Top 5s, and 1 win with 8 kills, I have finally hit battlepass level 2.”

As the above tweets show, Respawn has halved the amount of XP required per battle star, and it says that next week’s challenges will require significantly less time to complete.
