    Poor change IMO. A lot of us have been on XCC for years and dont really care for FUT much at this point but more the community aspect.

    You're still welcome to discuss whatever you like (within the rules), just in a different forum, the discussion doesn't have to stop.

    But having the FUT forum to discuss FUT seems logical to me.

    I understand that but were the few OT threads really that disruptive?

    People have been chatting about fifa and OT in tandem in xcc since before I joined forums in 2011 and its never caused any real issues so why change it now?

    The OT section has always been dead in the water, maybe whoever made this decision will think it will revitalise it but I dont see it.

    Ridiculous. So all the lounges are now being moved. Great. Make them even more obscure so new guys won’t join in

    C’mon Azof, it’s too logical and works to well for their liking :joy:

    Look how few people have read the rules on xcc, sub 1k views on the thread. Even less people are going to read about these changes an it is just going to create more work for the mods who seem inadequate as it stands at the moment

    Such a silly and pointless change. So many people have left the forums over the last few years for various reasons such as this. It may not seem like such a big deal but like others have said, OT and real football discussions have always been a part of the XBCC and it has never caused issues?

    There's a very good sense of community in the XBCC thanks to the diverse subjects of conversation. General discussion, real football etc. have all gone to ****, mostly thanks to trolling kids who make pointless threads and mock each other constantly. Making changes like this will only accelerate this forum's decline.

    Have already said this. Are they going to moderate every non FUT post in the XBCC section.They’re gonna have so much work on their hands or they’ll be banning all the old/guys that contribute a lot to the forum. It adds so much to the forum having people talk about football along side FUT

    Really going to ruin the community aspect that so many enjoy about the FIFA forums.

    We're just working on some permissions at the moment across the forum so you may see this happen a little. Shouldn't take too long.

    Maybe listen to your customers for once

    not a single poster above thinks it is a good change

    Most people including myself won’t bother going to other sections of the forum, so this change will kill a lot of good threads.

    There’s a reason a lot of us stay in our section. I only ever leave XBCC for the football league thread, and that is a rarity.
