Fut has been so lucrative for the past 10 years. Why is it all of a sudden they want to push away customer. I understand some of the marketing tactics but this is really getting ridiculous. They are actually offending their player base. They didn’t benefit in any way from this last war figo mess. No one will do it. If they made it affordable more people would sink coins and get 50 some stats on a card they already have. It would have taking coins from their account. It’s literally a slap in the face. But why? Why are they doing this? It will bite them in the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ this is getting bad

    5k left from on PS4 from 40k. Still 22 mins left. You don’t think they’ll sell out?

    They also lower the amounts as the promo goes on, so it looks like they’re selling a bunch. Friday lightening rounds were way more than 40k. They will offer less to try to ensure they sell out. People see only a few thousand left and buy. But see 20,000 left with a few minutes to go and don’t load up points. It’s all psychology.

    They ignore our complaints about servers and gameplay.
    Then fire out as many promos s they can think of purely to take our money.
    EA are the scum of the gaming world.

    I have two friends who play fifa. They don't come to the forums or care about the promos or SBCs. They just play.
    They don't complain, they feel the game is awesome.
    Maybe that's the attitude of the majority of the players and we stay here complaining, while ea is catering to those players who feel fine about the game.
    Just my two cents...

    Be careful what you wish for people. If EA really did pull the plug on this game you would all have to get a life.
    No more constant whinging and complaining, no spending all day on forums saying how terrible the game is. No more weekend league or rivals.
    It is in all our interests that EA sell lots of packs

    No, its not.

    The biggest improvements EA made to the game were when they were in 2nd place to PES. Konami had the better game for a number of years and EA upped their game releasing a better FIFA every year until were on top again.

    Then EA continued to build on that with FIFA 09/FIFA10/WC 2010 which were all amazing games, but once UT started to take off, EA have gone backwards with gameplay, focused on UT only, shafted every other mode and treated their fans like complete garbage.

    UT/FIFA bombing would be the best thing to happen to the series, PES will never return to its former glory but if pack sales and game sales dried up, EA would be forced to step up their game again, just like did in the 00s.

    Why? For money. Thats why.
    I mean, why on earth would they make a better game, when they can make the same game from last year, and continue to make millions upon millions far after the release of the game with packs.
    So long as packs sell, the game will not improve. I was buying packs (I've only been playing for the last two years though), and have completely stopped when I realized this.

    Yeah!They see us and treat us as addicts and not as customers.And l mean seriously. As long as they don't see you as addict,they feed you with good gameplay,better pack pulls -trying to lure you in.And as soon as you show them sights of addiction everything changes to opposite.You become a punching bag for noobs-potential addicts,milking cows in the future.It's like addiction factory.First addict creates second,second creats third and so on.And at the same time all this process frustrates the crap out of player and very likely he will try to escape frustration by upgrading his team.Upgrading by using real money of course!

    Yeah I've a friend that still plays the game but only plays online seasons and doesn't come on here or anything and he bought the game about a month ago and I told him it was absolutely shocking and he said he had been playing it alot in his brothers and thinks it's fantastic.

    Yea I didn’t believe it at first but I am really starting to. They will find a way around it selling players for money or what not but the fact they throw their player base under the bus is sicking. Hope it happens. Last year I would have been sad if it did but I don’t even care about the game mode nearly as much and hope they get what they deserve

    Its all about the promos personally I don't care about the shiny new cards if the gameplay is awful but this year its all about promos where 18 was probably best fifa game that ever came out

    Hopefully after today’s terrible sales they drop a big icon or a good repeatable sbc. Ether would drive people to open theme
