    Tbh I wouldn't expect to hear anything different from a person of such a high level in the company, even if he's not in that position anymore.

    That is some serious BS talk.

    I stand behind theory that FUT has clear gambling aspect to it, but I'm ok with it, as long as they provide us with great rewards for playing, competative objective cards, skill based mechanics and tools for trade. It's just one fun layer in the complex simulation.

    I seriously concider all the anti-gambling regulation as bad for everybody, as it just removes options for the wealthy players that gladly pay for all the good stuff we get in this mode like daily content. It's ironically giving poor players possibility to obtain great cards, and notoriously low pack weight that is in a way anti-pay-to-win.

    It will be hard case to defend it on the court. Yes you get something in rerurn but if it contains discard value cards, in terms of FUT, it's like you got nothing in return.

    So do u think poor people don't deserve to play with any of the great cards in the game or even children who can't afford to spend thousands of pounds on a game every year don't deserve to get to play with thier favourite players who ea use on every advert to promote and sell the game each year

    I personally don’t think opening packs is gambling since you’re guaranteed a reward (even if it’s usually crap).

    However, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t addictive or dangerous. People need to stop focusing on the word “gambling”. Gambling isnt the only addictive thing on the planet.

    You somehow missed the whole point - children and poor players can get good cards exactly because of the gambling aspect, and in fact I am certain that they will - they just need to play, because rewards are generous. Maybe they won't get R94 and Gullit, but grinders get so much in return.

    If EA removes the gambling aspect and just stick a price on Ronaldo, that is even more pay to win and puts poor players in more disadvantage.

    And let's not kid ourselfs here, microtransactions are here to stay, in one form or another. I just choose the lesser evil here - and more fun. Lootboxes are fun, fixed prices for ingame items are not.

    I loved how he described the feeling of packing a Messi or CR7 when a lot of us have played for years and never packed one. Should've talked more about the 99.99% of people who never pack an icon during the whole year

    I've personally spent easily £10k on ut (nothing last 2 installments) from it started and I've never hit a top player from all them paid for packs
    I know one person who has spent nearly £5k this year alone and dearest player was Bruno who sold for 170k coins at the time and he's still not hit a single promo card lol
    if anyone thinks this is fine how it is for a supposed children's video game is honestly deluded
    I do get the point your trying to make but ea have had it all thier own way for too long and the give absolutely nothing back the just push the boundaries that bit further each year
    I mean let's not kid ourselves in its current format it's a complete rip off something has got to change
    U could spend £20k on packs and still
    not be able to afford all the best players in the game

    They need to make an 18 game or stop loot boxes for cash

    Moore says that the sheer number of packs sold and money made from Ultimate Team is an indication that people want this style of loot box to remain and "the numbers speak for themselves."

    So you can say about a lot of thinks people buy
