Last week, one of the most important controversies of FIFA 21 jumped into the light. A number of content creators and players began to contribute information about a parallel market in Ultimate Team, through which users could get hold of cards for prices over 1,000 dollars.
This fact in itself striking was accentuated more when pointing to employees of Electronic Arts itself as those responsible for these actions. Now the company has issued a statement
Although “it is not a great number”, the company qualifies this activity as “unacceptable”. EA assures that “in no way do we tolerate the granting or purchasing of player items in exchange for money
Once they have completed their investigation, will take action against “any employee who is participating in this activity. “Furthermore, the entire sales chain will be affected as” any item awarded through this illicit activity will be removed from the FUT ecosystem and EA will permanently ban any player known to have acquired content through these means “.
The truth is that the company’s apologies during the statement have been constant, showing its concern for the well-being of the community. “We apologize for the impact of these inappropriate grants within the community,” they explained.
Thus, the investigation continues, in order to identify those accounts that have received content in this way. In addition, the content concession has been suspended for an indefinite period, that is, letters will not be distributed individually until further notice.
