EA has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately, and this time it surrounds Need For Speed Payback's progression and microtransactions.
On the Need for SpeedReddit, F8RGE acknowledges the changes have come about following fan feedback on their "experience with the progression".
Need for Speed Payback changes include alterations to the REP system, awarded Bank and shipments.
Reviewers found that the progression of the game was slow and improving your vehicle and unlocking items were geared (pun not intended) around a microtransaction system that would speed up your progression.

Increased the amount of REP awarded by taking part in events.
Bait crates now reward increased REP.
Competing against a Roaming Racer will reward you with increased REP.
Bait crates now reward increased Bank.
Don't forget to recycle your speed cards for tokens, either-F8RGE advises they're "very good alternative to tune-up shops".

Competing against a Roaming Racer will reward you with increased Bank.
But while these tweaks will undeniably improve the game, it still doesn't fix our fundamental problem with it: repetition is more or less required if you want to appropriately spec your ride.
Also expect more REP and Bank for finishing outside of first place, too. They say that they now have plans to change the way that tune-up shops work with regards to the quality and level of parts that they have. Most interestingly, some of this incompetence can be traced to the literal "slot machines" featured in Need For Speed Payback that can grant all kinds of stuff including rewards.
