YOU JUST LOST A CUSTOMER - Icon Swaps cap

1
I'm through, EA.

FIFA, Madden, Battlefield, all of it.

You intentionally installed a cap for games for the Icon Swaps matches because the community banded together to HELP EACH OTHER get Icon Swaps in order to reduce toxicity and a terrible grind in a Friendlies mode. Instead of saluting the community spirit, you crushed everyone like The Emperor from Star Wars and that's the last straw really. There was no need for you to do that, and it's utterly ridiculous. You already ruined League SBCs so yeah... so now you lost all of my business forever for any game you make.

I hope it was worth it!

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️, people exploited the system to get their shiny new cards unfairly and quicker than they should. Its like no one learned from the goal sharing with Politano last year.... if you bend or exploit the requirements EA will make sure it doesn't happen the next time.

    Exploited? LMAO

    Now the courts are saying it is wrong for selling FIFA points and get ready for the FIFA Points to go away. Save your hearts for that day when the FIFA Points go bye bye

    I think some people are raging because they think the whole thing is capped at 60 games. You have to win one in 4 games for 2 objectives. Not too bad although I bet some will still get screwed.

    They literally changed the rules in the middle of the game and not in the beginning. They already ruined League SBCs by making them UT! That's spiteful and vindictive.

    EA has exploited people with their microtransactions for YEARS now... and now the courts are saying it is wrong and get ready for the FIFA Points to go away. Save your hearts for that day when the FIFA Points go bye bye

    I completely agree on the microtransactions . I can't wait for fifa points to go, I'm hopeful it'll be soon too. That though has nothing to do with people completing their icon swaps in less than a day.

    People saw last season that if you exploit the objective, EA are going to make sure it doesn't happen a 2nd time (see Politano and the goal swapping). People cheesed and exploited the requirements for Icon Swaps 1, you don't have to like it but its true, so EA responded by preventing people quitting on first goal by sticking a ton of them in Squad Battles and adding other objectives.

    This is a case of the community reaping what it sews. Do you think this would have happened if people played out the matches in Icon Swaps 1 instead of cheesing them?

    There is a cap on number of games played in Friendlies mid game. There is no other justifiable reason to cap FRIENDLIES unless you are punishing us. Rivals and Squad Battles I get because players are ranked for rewards... but THIS and mid game? No.

    You're going to go behind in 47 games out of 60?

    It’s not the number of wins in 60. It’s the principle more than anything. EA could’ve jus let this be. How about EA worries about real in game issues that have been goin on for years instead of this.

    I quit a while ago too. I just come on here to watch the tragic addicts continue to get screwed by EA from every angle and continue moaning and playing. Sadly that's what I was a couple of months ago. The full on deniers are the worst. At least most people are aware what a bad experience it is all round.

    To the OP. You will be very glad if you quit a month or so down the line. Congrats.

    Everyone has their own opinions and views. No need at all to call out people. Bro think outside the box instead of jus trying to call people names by degrading them. Smh.

    Exactly, I guess this is what grates many players. I don't really care about the limit, I'll still get all the tokens and we all knew the cap was coming.

    But they put so much effort into making sure people have to grind and we know it's because they want people to take the route of gambling on packs from buying points in the hope of top pulls.

    Yet, ridiculous gameplay issues such as tackles/refereeing are broken months later.
