    • @Jason Strange this is a very naive and narrow minded opinion. The main problems with this are 1. Part of the target audience for these profits are kids/teenagers 2. It exploits the addictive nature of the game in an unethical and also hypocritical way, as Yong so accurately explains. It's easy to blame the victims unless you actually know what it's like to be in their shoes

    • @william miklos at the very least, make 1 game every 2 years. Ex: Madden 17-18. Not even that, and that's besides then raking in money on top of yearly, full priced releases.

  • It's seriously not their fault at this point. I understand children... but 18-completely grown adults?? At this point it's more than half the consumers fault. Just like how the media is allowed what they are up to, and how shit music (specifically mumble rap) is praised as godly music. If the consumers would just _STOP_ EA "It's Pay To Play" would have to change. Though, I still believe these fifa fucks need to be sued for the creation of gambling addiction in minors among other things. The consumers need to destroy them of their own volition; making an example out of them. And, being one of the biggest companies it would set a fucking precedent for all the pubs *cough cough* Activision *cough cough* not to Tread on on those who put them atop the spire. _TOP HEAVY TOPPLES STEADY_

  • On the trading side, if you traded that much you'd probably get banned because that happens. I stopped playing and therefore paying a long time ago. In fact I boycotted EA games altogether they'll only get the message if you vote with your feet and walk away.

  • What utter scumbags. And let's not forget that those times were calculated based on a hypothetical ability to engage with the game 24/7. If you manage to game 8 hours a day, which is still A LOT, it'd take you 3 times longer, so around 7,5 years for option one and almost 7 months for option two. A more realistic number is 4 hours og gaming per day, in which case it's 14 years for option one and just under 14 months for option two.

  • I know this video is a week old and nobody will see my comment but at this point I kind of blame the people buying this game. When customers buy games like this it justifies the bad behavior by EA. They will continue to do this until they see a dip in sales of their games. The dip and sales also has to be clear to the investors that people aren't buying games with microtransactions anymore. Until that happens this practice of microtransactions will continue and never stop. I for one am very happy that I have given up on current gen gaming and will only play games up until the Xbox 360 and PS3 era of games. have fun with your endless microtransactions because I know the video game community is far too ignorant to actually Make any positive changes

  • It’s shit like this that EA pulls is why I never buy their games. Ever since Anthem I promised myself never again. Pretty much done with gaming all together. I haven’t gamed in almost a year. The whole Console Scalping Chaos added fuel to the fire of Greed in the Gaming World. Sad

  • Thats not awful greed. Its called a game and if you want to earn the perks, play. Thats like complaining that it takes too long to get into scouted and signed into pro-football irl. Yong. You gives us news and complain a bunch. I would like to see you take this passion and lead a game development team so we can do things how you believe are the right way. That is your next level, are you ready for it?

  • Why do people call buying loot boxes and other such gambling isn't gambling paying money for a chance to win something and i am NOT saying this to stick up for EA they can go fuck themselves. I am just wondering why people call buying loot boxes and such gambling is it easier to just say its gambling or what?

  • I just want to mention that your reporting (and the research done) is misleading. Although I fully agree and IN ABSOLUTELY NO WAY WOULD DEFEND EA FOR ANYTHING!! You do not 'just' play for the simple 500 coins. Those pack rewards bla bla bla yes it's a ripoff. BUT, I have a good friend who only plays fifa and each years builds his team from scratch without paying a penny. And because he's a pretty good player he manages to pull in more rewards than the avarage player and at some point you will get something decent from pack draws or weekend league rewards. Again to be /very/ clear. I'm not defending EA here, what they do is atrocious. I'm just saying this report is misleading.

  • I mean i hate to defend this game but you can actually make a really good team without spending money or a ton of hours, even the community help each other by letting people do weekly and daily challenges when they are in a 1v1 match. You score I score. That way you can get good player cards like Cristiano Ronaldo. You can waste all your money getting those legend cards and still lose against a casual with a decent team

  • I got FIFA 21 a few days ago on Stadia. I find the main online game ok though at times repetitive. Dipped my toes into FUT and thought it was just tedious, quite why anyone would spend extra money on this is beyond me. Certain players are so overpowered it just makes it absolutely pointless. One thing to blame EA for greed but it is realistic in football that money can bring success. Whether people can see a fallacy in spend lots to beat someone 11-0 is worth your money is I suppose up to them.

  • People have lives? What lives do FIFA consumers have if they cannot find life satisfaction unless they gain access to these pointless gimmicks? Stop complaining and teach young kids about impulse control, discipline and personal responsibility. Should we expect everyone on the planet to be able to afford a Tesla, or to buy a house in the Hollywood Hills? It's useless to call out corporations for this kind of behavior because nothing will change unless consumers become more self-aware and intelligent in how they navigate the marketplace.

  • Hmm. I think it’s time to stop bashing EA and start talking to the players to get them to stop supporting these games. After all, Ea has record sales every year- clearly the players are getting sucked into the whirlpool. Many games have had successful coups but the players. FIFA needs one as well. We keep framing this as a EA issue, but the players are to blame as well- just like for Cyberpunk 2077. Obviously shaming the player base is a dumb option, but we do need to reach out and argue logically and emotionally that FIFA is predatory as it is. It needs to change, and the players should demand it.
