EA have been aggressively pushing UT for a good number of years now, nearly half of the main menu on Fifa is dedicated to UT regardless of whether you have even touched the mode. Not to mention EA are putting barely any work in other modes these days, it's no wonder the amount of people playing UT is so high.

I think many (not all) of the players of FIFA and Madden play very few games outside their one or two sports titles. Their tolerance for MTX in games is leading companies like EA to assume that all gamers tolerate such BS. Let's hope the pushback EA and others get from this helps them see this type of monetization is a bad idea for many games. Frankly, I'd remove it from all games. MTX in full prices retail games is a low point of gaming.
