    No benefits, just a good experience. Sharing his opinion on the game on a private forum with the devs is something very cool

    • Bought FP in 16 ... got the 17 Beta
    • Bought FP in 17 ... got the 18 Beta
    • Bought FP in 18 ... got the 19 Beta
    • Bought FP in 19 ... got the 20 Beta
    • RTG in 20 ... no code for the 21 Beta

    Disappointing because I like grinding the Beta for 2 weeks more than the real game.

    Never buy FP and had it the last 3 years but not this year. Changing it up I reckon

    Reckon they just want random people to test the beta this year noticed quiet a lot of experienced Fifa players haven’t received the Beta. Ah well I thought last year the beta had better gameplay than the actual full game!

    The F20 BETA and full product (excluding the first week of release) were like two different entities. I just don’t get why they literally undid EVERYTHING that made the BETA so good. They even had a separate forum for feedback and the majority of people loved the gameplay. It just needed a few fixes such as rebounds, dodgy goalkeepers....but patched it to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ a week after release and boom, the game was unrecognizable.

    They just said that so you stop bothering them. EA live chat aren't actually EA employees, just a third party customer service company probably in Indian somewhere

    AH cool
    So why don’t we use that platform with those people that have the option to raise the concerns of what is wrong with the game!!!

    There is no pattern. As far as we know, who does and doesn't get a code is just random.

    Because the beta forum will be packed full of those concerns just like it was last year, but there will be no actual devs or EA staff on the beta forum to discuss or read the posts, just like last year.

    Then they'll complain that they didn't get much feedback from players during the beta.

    Beta is all about who spend money on the game. I got the beta from fifa 16-18 when I was spending tons of money on the game. I spent $60 on 18 didn’t get a beta for 19, spent nothing on 19, no beta for 20, I spent practically nothing on 20, didn’t get anything for 21.

    It’s fine. Games going to be bad anyway

    Weird, because I got one for FIFA 20 having never spent a dime on FIFA Points in any FIFA game, and three of my friends who ran Poor Man RTGs in FIFA 20 have got a code for the FIFA 21 beta.

    Meanwhile, I bought a few FIFA Points at the start of FIFA 20 and haven't got a code.

    So...explain that.

    Sample size too small to know that. Every year I put around 30 dollars on FIFA Points and this is the first year I got a BETA Code. Does this mean that it's totally random? I don't know.

    Maybe it's based on the amount of Weekend League's played or the amount of red cards you received - we simply don't know.

    It's really not. I've played every FUT since it first came out and spent money each time, never had the beta. It's just random.

    I'm waiting for my man
    Twenty-six dollars in my hand
    Up to Lexington, one, two, five
    Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive
    I'm waiting for my man
    Hey, white boy, what you doin' uptown?
    Hey, white boy, you chasin' our women around?
    Oh pardon me sir, it's the furthest from my mind
    I'm just lookin' for a dear, dear friend of mine
    I'm waiting for my man
    Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
    Beat up shoes and a big straw hat
    He's never early, he's always late
    First thing you learn is that you always gotta wait
    I'm waiting for my man, ah work it now
    Up to a brownstone, up three flights of stairs
    Everybody body's pinned you, but nobody cares
    He's got the works, gives you sweet taste
    Ah then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
    I'm waiting for my man
    Baby don't you holler, darlin' don't you bawl and shout
    I'm feeling good, you know I'm gonna work it on out
    I'm feeling good, I feel oh so fine
    Until tomorrow, but that's just some other time
    I'm waiting for my man, walk it home

    🐒🥴⚡

    False, I've never bought fifa points ever and have been in a few betas including this one.
