Can anyone on the EA community team tell us if nearly half of us will be locked out from transfer market access when the web app launches? Last year this gave an unfair advantage to some people and resulted in pages and pages of abuse directed towards EA.

Can we have some early clarification to avoid a repeat? @EA_Andy

    They seemed to block some who had traded over 10 million. Just sad really, hope we do not get a repeat of these snide tactics from EA

    I think it would be helpful if they just communicated something along the lines of 'only 50% of the playerbase will get transfer market access at the launch of the webapp and this will be decided at random' as opposed to last year where it was advertised and people suddenly found out they couldn't use it fully and understandably raged as a result.

    A whole week of no transfer market access does put you at a disadvantage.

    Whether it was decided at random or not is another issue!

    Was this actually done on purpose? I thought it was some kind of **** up?

    They purposely blocked lots of people from the transfer market until launch date. Whether people were blocked at random to ease server load or not is down to theory. We never got an explanation.

    Call it unfair and what not, which it is, but EA don’t owe you access to the web app, and this is coming from someone who was denied access last fut xxx

    The volume traders create to an app that’s just to set your account up is staggering. Hope it’s same as last year. Stops traders abusing and exploiting from the get go

    I feel like this is an argument that never gets resolved but "abusing and exploiting" :D

    That’s why in my view, transfer market should be removed.

    Reasons:
    1) coin transferring tool
    2) Killing the server on weekends esp when there’re big promo

    Solution:
    Create a FUT shop for players buying/selling with floating prices. No one will 365/7/24 idling in game just for trading cards.
