Leaked documents provided by an insider indicate that publishing giant EA considers microtransactions the "cornerstone" of the FIFA series.
Oh EA EA EA you said why are victims? People hate us. Well EA you always made your bed and now you can take Ls by doing stupid decisions like these that'll cause hella backlash and memes out of this. Next time EA if I see an article of you guys saying why are we victims ? Articles I am going to laugh and say this article/doc is the reason why!!
Ea will not learn until they come close to bankruptcy.
Facts we need to bankrupt these people.
1) it won’t ever happen 2) even if they went bankrupt, the ones who made these shitty decisions would still gut all the equity and walk away with 7 generations of retirement money. Their bankruptcy only hurts the people working for them.
So many pigeons out there who buy blindly.. We are the minority unfortunately
EA learned from Battlefront 2 and the huge backlash it received. Having said that though, I'm not sure why this is even news, over half of the main menu screen on fifa is basically a huge FUT advert and has been for years now. It's obvious they want everyone to be playing that, career mode has barely had any interesting additions for years and clubs is an after thought for them
Bankrupt and put 9,800 people out of a job instead of just not buying their shit?
Lol people will buy it regardless of warning them not too. I say they need learn to change themselves or they're going bankrupt.
"I say they need learn to change themselves or they're going bankrupt. " What you said: "Facts we need to bankrupt these people. " Bonk...
Imagine my surprise.
Where's cancel culture at.. these are the actual real things in life that should be cancelled.
Ea should be one
Yeah about as surprised as fifa 22 later this year 😑🤣
They are not called 'loot boxes'. They are 'surprise mechanics'. Totally different thing. /S
Can i get a "duh!"?
Yeah pretty much, only thing this changes is that they cant play dumb anymore, but they will certainly try lol
@adamino No you can’t get a “duh” but you can have a agree 😉✨
Sorry, I don't have a time machine to get that for you from the 80s.
Can't wait for the next battlefront 2 fiasco with loot boxes and to hear them cry the victom again.
It's EA, they don't make games anymore,
We should start calling EA a casino from now on!
Please sir or madam: We prefer the term "surprise mechanics" around here.
As long as people keep spending, we will keep seeing this shit.
Who needed leaked documents to figure that one out? Lmao
EA can go suck an egg. Greedy thieves.
EA can kiss my you know what. I stopped buying their trash games a long time ago. Validation as to why I won’t support their products.
*Pikachu Surprised Face*
Most companies are, at this point so what? Like seriously. They're all trying to maximize profits. Just don't buy em. Gacha are loot boxes and Fate GO and Genshin make a billion plus within a year. Why wouldn't they want to. Even if I'm not for it
Its delusional to think that any company that has microtransactions and/or lootboxes doesnt implement a design to advertise or remind players of them. I dont see the big deal with this article either. Its only stating the obvious.
Pretty sure they have openly stated that every investors call and in multiple courtrooms worldwide.
EA is a dying company. Sure right now they are gaining profit from the microtransactions of their sports games, but take a look at everything else they've put out. Aside from a few acceptions their games have been horrible for years. Their studios are either dead or in the process of dying. Their public image has been way too tarnished, and they can only go so far with shady business practices before it comes back and bites them in the ass.
Imagine still playing and defending fifa as a good game
EA, the worst company on the planet. They drive gamers away.
You don't need leaked documents too see that. EA are vultures
Worried for bf6
So they have with Microsoft & gamepass the perfect partner for this :)
In related news, water is wet
Technically water isn't wet, though. ‘Wet’ means being covered or saturated with a liquid, but water isn't because it literally is a liquid. In other words, f*** EA.
EA wasn't called the worst company in America for nothing.
EA pay kids to promote there games on youtube and twitch to open packs. You guys need to call them out.
^^^ Streaming needs to be held to the same advertising standard as commercials. It is not and companies are taking rampant advantage of it.
Hope they burn in HEAllllll!!!
EA can **** ** *****
suck my peni5?
have a lollipop?
Trying? Been happening for years.
Every company who has this stuff will want you to buy it. Its like people here have not seen every company will push you towards buying extra things. Welcome to the Earth.
Who needed the documents 😑🤦🏻♂️ 🥱🤣
I think they have the balance right at the moment. As a Fifa Ultimate Team player I can tell you it's easy to get a very good team without spending a penny. They offer rewards everywhere for completing objectives and weekend league. I've not even played one single weekend league this year and I have a very good team. I'd stop playing if they try to change it and give you a significant advantage from spending money though.
Bottom line ppl or gamers love looot boxes otherwise it would not be lucrative
As much as I like my Fifa, i do NOT like EA nor FIFA the organization
Sadly there are sooo many casual gamers who only play sports and call of duty games.
Where’s Skate? Where’s SSX? Where’s EA Big when games were actually fun? NBA Live? They’ve had 30 years to make a realistic football game and blocking is still broken. No Shizz EA is crap company that sells loot boxes, this is old news. Just like EA is an old out of touch company that has no new idea and does not cares about what fans actually want to play—they only want to monetize our time so we essentially work for them.
*Surprised pikachu face* EA is a bad company. I had a really strange interaction with their customer service today, I'll post it on reddit when I have the time, it was surreal. People are also to blame; until there isn't a mass boycott of them, it will continue. There is actually 0 reasons for them to stop these practices.
What a surprise. I hate EA.
Ya know, if yall are gonna gave problems with Lootboxes, have problems with microtransactions and paid DLC as well.
Just another reason why I hate EA and it's extremely rare I buy one of their games new or used.
