The developers of “Need for Speed Payback” are still working on the progress system of “Need for Speed Payback”. Some changes have already been made, others have followed. We have a summary for you.
Shortly after the release of “Need for Speed Payback” it got quiet about the title, but that does not mean that Electronic Arts has stopped support. The opposite is the case. Fittingly, the company has announced a few changes and improvements on the official site that primarily affect the progress system.
One has heard that it takes too much time to upgrade several cars. “We agree with why we have been tackling this issue in the past few weeks and will continue to work on it.” We have already started this process and made several server-side adjustments. “The first change concerns the parts offering in the tuning engine. Shops, which is now updated every 10 minutes instead of every 30 minutes as before, “said the makers.

In addition, changes have been made to the operation of events, bait boxes and street racers. If you complete such a task successfully, you will receive more in-game money and REP. “While you can buy more cars and parts through the higher cash gains, the REP increase has the side effect of getting you more shipments, which in turn leads to more money, part tokens, and customization,” it continues.
Also on the ranked speedlists something has been done. Participants can see that they can now win more parts. “While the winner of a speedlist is guaranteed to be rewarded with a new part, all others will get a 50 percent chance of getting an item by participating,” said EA.
