EA deny FUT is broken on FIFA game
30 June 2016

EA's FIFA football gaming franchise has been fantastically successful, and one of the things that is particularly loved is the Ultimate Team, also known as FUT.

However, fans of the game have been furious over claims that the most expensive cards in the feature, don't work.

EA is trying to calm the angry gamers (and you don't want to upset hardcore gamers, as they can maintain their venom for years at a time) who have threatened a boycott.

Basically, fans have been trying to work out just exactly how the game's FIFA Ultimate Team mode decides the in-game abilities of various footballers.

The conclusion they came to, is that the better players were oddly sluggish, and less-skilled players were better than they should be. Seeing as people spend actual real money on these things, you can see why people would be annoyed.

There's a video you can watch, too.

There seems to be something amiss with the 'chemistry' system, and worse news for EA, is that this is something that seems to have been borked for a number of years.

Community manager Rob Hodson said on an official forum: "Thanks to the FUT community for raising awareness of a potential fitness and chemistry inconsistency in some FUT items."

"After hearing this, our teams were in over the weekend and continue to thoroughly investigate the information. We will keep you informed with updates from the investigation."

"Our commitment to a fun, fair and secure experience in FIFA is ongoing, and as a community your feedback helps us achieve that goal. A special thanks for your continuous efforts across all channels."

Will that calm the anger of people who have already spent their money with the game? We'll see.
