  • ...I have never met anyone in my life who plays sports games. It amazes me that people play Fifa. Just do it outside. I cannot (without repercussion) grab a gun and start shooting things or wield magic or fly through the air. That's why I play games. Fifa players seem dumb to me.

  • How about EA make different versions of the game like they do already but $100 version has the gambling mechanics and packs and u can use real money and a regular $60 version don't have any options to use real money, you simply unlock by playing the game!! The rich people who they cater to gets to have a gambling version and if you don't want to use real money or gamble you get the $60 version, EA can easily do that but they won't do that either bc they want kids to steal their parents money to spend on packs and loot boxes!!

  • *I'd just like to point out that every gacha game depends on whales. But that's not the problem.* The difference between EA and the companies that don't abuse the playerbase is that the other companies make sure the game is F2P friendly in order to increase the playerbase, consequently increasing the number of whales and their revenue while keeping F2P players satisfied and happy with the game. *EA does the exact opposite.* They make the game *AS HARD ON F2P AS THEY CAN* to force their playerbase to whale. The only reason FIFA thrives, besides soccer being the most played sport in the world, is 1- the fact that they have no competition in the genre; 2- gacha done right is a very rare thing in the west; 3- most people don't even understand how scummy their exploitation is. In fact, another problem is FIboth. Something that's pretty common around eastern gacha games' global communities is promoting staying F2P and, in case you want to spend money, careful spending. For western games, you don't get that. All I ever see is people spending, not talking about how you should spend. And I'm pretty sure companies like EA would actually go out of their way to get influencers to not talk about that. The west is still waaaay too new and too uneducated on how to gacha. You need a strong mindset to play these games, and a good knowledge of how they should be in order to stay away from scummy gacha like FIFA.

IT'S A CRAZY THING THAT 99% OF YOUR AUDIENCE DOESNT KNOW WHAT LOBBYIST DO. We can't win when the government won't even look at the problem. Because before they even think there may be a problem they have a company giving them money or trips even tires for there car to just vote a certain way or keep it off the speakers desk.

But in reality the enablers aren't the type of people to be watching this video at all. Just let it be man. I think karma works in mysterious ways.

However, I have a friend who does like to gamble (on a small level such as Accumulators), everyone is different. FUT could be very dangerous to those that do enjoy a gamble. I'm glad to see these videos and articles being brought to attention, it helps raise awareness.

    • Can't use the slides, you have to pay for a lootbox You can get access to the slides from the lootbox, but there's a very low chance of getting it Alternatively, you can buy a slide access pass subscription The park is open to kids of all ages if they'll bring money or their parents We release a brand new water park every year which you have to pay a large one time fee to be able to access, and the old one gets closed, also the new one is exactly the same as the old one There's free slides which can be used for free, but they lead to a pool of shit instead, and if you go into that pool 10000 times you have a chance of getting limited slide access Water itself is paywalled

  • If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: the only way to erase this plague for good is to let the AAA gaming industry crash again. Too many AAA studios have resorted to predatory tactics in order to cover their unsustainable business practices. The minute you outlaw predatory microtransactions, the entire industry goes belly-up. This is exactly why the only AAA games I play are those that are completely microtransaction-free.

  • The f2p grind is so bad that, theoretically, the game becomes obsolete by the time a player obtains everything they want (which has been approximated to be between 1-3 years). If their players want to make a “meta” team, they absolutely, positively HAVE to spend money. And even then, it’s not guaranteed. Predatory consumerism at its finest, my dudes.

  • To be honest, I don't care about this issue as much as I probably should. Fifa is literal garbage, so much so that one years game can be like 20p a year or two later. So I don't really care that the people that choose to play it are seen as just walking wallets to EA. If they'd just keep this gambling element to Fifa, I'd be happier. Garbage feature for a garbage game.
