FUT and FIFA POINTS System makes me SICK

I thought out of curiosity to why not check out the FUT pack opening and see why people invest not only real money but THOUSANDS of raw cash on a game they already paid for
After seeing the vid below briefly, I’ve never felt so disgraced with EA and FUT than I already was before…. Like literally this fat egghead is gambling right in the very front of your eyes. Spending thousands to get a great team BEFORE the app is released LET ALONE the game itself

The comments are full of kids who are complaining about “pack animations” which is awfully cringe. And they’ll also spend 100s to get Fred

EA don’t give a toss because it earns them millions and millions a year… but like I’ve been saying for a decade plus, when FUT became the monetized mode it has ruined the FIFA franchise.

Other modes neglected to cater for the open check books of parents that kids literally will spend spend spend. I’m guilty of playing FUT towards the end of the season because I want to play with Gerrard and other legends that I won’t get the opportunity to do so on other modes, but i will never spend a single extra penny, unfortunately not many have the same energy

    Yeah the complaints about pack animations are super weird to me. But I guess it matters if you spend hours and hours, just like all the bells and whistles that make a slot machine appealing to gambling addicts.

    I'd be delighted to see those kinds of microtransactions outlawed but I think the publishers are going to lobby very hard to keep it if it ever comes under legal scrutiny.

    Fat egghead 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭

    But you're absolutely right!! FUT isnt the problem, its Fifa Points! Remove Fifa Points then even FUT might be enjoyable! I remember actually enjoying the first instalment back in their Champions League game in 09 or something? Where you built your team around your Virtual Pro! This way, EA wouldnt make so much money through one mode so would balance out the development time between all of them..
