Goodbye Fifa from a FUT Founder

Little video below of me discarding around 20m worth of players if that interests you and you don't want to read the post

I know my EST date is last year but that was PS4, was a FUT founder on Xbox.

Anyway, I turned 23 yesterday and played 5 games of fut champs on my birthday and it only dawned on me today why did I do that, I don't enjoy the game and I don't have the same fun that I used to have when I was younger so instead of dwelling on it, blaming other things I've decided I'm going to hang up my fifa boots

Before people ask, nothing brought this on gameplay wise etc, IMO it's the community who ruin the game and not EA even though EA give the community the tools to do so. Bit like the old riddle, do guns kill people or do people kill people.

If you are enjoying the game don't let people ruin it for you by forcing their opinion onto you. Carry on doing what you enjoy.

Have a met a lot of nice people on this forum, mostly the older forum 5+ years back but still, too many people to name, want to thank them all.

Fifa was with me growing up and only fuelled my love for real football which made me start attending more matches IRL which is where I met my lovely girlfriend of 4+ years so I have Fifa to be thankful for that. Not gone to as many matches as I'd have liked over the past 2 years due to FUT champs but that can all change now

Wish I could give away the remaining 4.5m~ on my account but it'd only get people into trouble with EA so please accept the gesture of goodwill even though I can do nothing with it

Peace out.

    Is it just me, or is that painful to watch?

    never thought a film could get to me like when mufasa passes away and simbas in bits but that knocked me for 6 , felt like a charity appeal .

    This is becoming a common thing these days. Fortunately for ea there is an endless stream of kids buying into the slot machine that is fut primed and ready to grow a healthy addiction to pack openings.

    Feel like doing this myself tbh. Also a FUT Founder.

    No going back after you delete Gullit and Ronaldo.

    Didn’t know you, didn’t watch video, but very poignant and well worded post, IMO. Good luck for your future.

    Thanks for all the kinds words, greatly appreciated

    It was painful discarding all the players, you can see me dilly dally on Ronaldinho for a split second, his 91 card I had over 1k games played and the prime around 500, used a version of him in every single game I ever played this year (except for a few drafts)

    As someone mentioned, it was the only way I'd know for definite that I'd be done with the game so had to be done

    Good luck mate. Completely agree with what you say about the community. I’m away this weekend so I let my 12 year old little bro play my WL games. Some of the messages are disgusting, some of community need a long hard look at themselves.

    All the best in your endeavours

    its the community ea has created tbf.

    if there was a bunch of cups to play, and the game was actually fun i dont think the community would be this toxic. but when you have one mode, and everything is put into that one mode, this is what you get. toxicity.

    So EA makes people message toxic BS to people? Leave it out mate. I get what you’re saying in some respect though.

    :D:D Yeah, it's like when someone posts on Facebook "blah blah blah, I'm leaving Facebook after x number of years because of this and that"

    Nobody really cares that you joined in the first place, and if you're gonna go just go.
