This is how EA works
They don't care about real football and they don't care about a good game or good customer service.
They care about you buying FP and increasing their profit margins to disgusting levels. THAT IS ALL THEY CARE ABOUT.
Why spend money improving the game when:
1) people keep buying a broken game
2) broken games generate more FP purchases
EA is voted one of the worst companies in the world repeatedly.
They stumbled onto FUT and turned it into a cash cow.
Everything they do is to get you to BUY FP.
Why all the continual screwups? Every move they make leads to worse results. Because ensuring quality in a game or customer service or in designing will cost them money to hire quality people so they hire scrubs who are clueless.
The key to FIFA is the licenses as long as they have them and the HYPE they will continue to screw us.
They are getting people addicted including children - that is unethical. They are basing a game on pay to play and pay to win - that is unethical. How proud one must be to work for a company that operates like your local crack dealer.
This is an example of unregulated monopoly capitalism at its worse and why we need govts to step in.
They tried the SAME BUSINESS MODEL with STAR WARS but those fans fought back. And now they might lose the franchise if only the FIFA community would do the same.
Bottom line it takes too long to play and trade to get the good players. SO ESSENTIALLY THEY ARE FORCING PEOPLE WITH REAL LIVES TO BUY FP!!!!!!!
And without the good players it is a different game believe me I have icons and I have the OPs and I know the score.
