    It's the reason I never attempted to take fut champs serious and I wouldn't suggest it to anyone. Its so difficult to qualify for these tournaments and players are getting nothing. All people who qualify should be atl east getting 1k minimum. EA make 1m per lighting round and their ceo makes 35million yearly lmao

    Imagine being the fifth best in the world. You've had to grind WL every single week and pump FP in to make sure your team can help you get to qualifiers. You have to fly yourself out for tournaments and then come away with $750 lol.

    Well hopefully more people realise it’s not worth it and actually play the game for fun instead of sweaty

    $750 if you end up in the 5th to 8th bucket, oh my...you can buy plenty of FPs and maybe pack a 83 CB board with some luck. Juicy.

    Compared to Starcraft II prizes, a 9 year old game that generates a tiny fraction of the revenue compared to FIFA

    :joy: :joy:

    And I thought fut champs rewards were bad.....EA really are the lowest of the low like anything to save a penny.

    Why don’t all the pros make a stand though? There’s not that many of them so it wouldn’t be too difficult.

    Also it’s not as if they’re replaceable. You can’t have professional tournaments for people who aren’t the best

    Agree it's shocking but i imagine it's something to do with the fact competitive Fifa gets far less viewers competitively. Usually competition organisers for e-sports are not the company that makes the game itself so it probably won't be EA hosting (I could be wrong about that).
    Competitive Fifa has a lower entertainment value and, to be honest, the skill cap is much lower for pros than it is in games that are popular in esports such as CS:GO, Starcraft or LoL.
