EA prolonged clashes with European governments due to its box control equipment the look should continue, with two separate cases filed in France accusing the company of ownership FIFA a series of containing game mode in a gamble that can actually be controlled.
As Rentals report (via GUG), two Paris lawyers file for players who claim that the only way to "win" in the Ultimate Team mode of the game is to spend real money on seasoned players' pockets.
One of the lawyers, Victor Zagury, cites Belgian law on non-gambling pot gambling as an example (translation provided by GUG).
In this game, everyone wants to have a dream team to go as far as possible. My client spent € 600 in five months without finding a great player. The developers of this game mode have developed a program that is far more subtle and more subtle. The more you pay, the more likely you are to find great players. We believe that gambling is included in this video game because buying packs is nothing more than a bet. It is the idea of a casino that enters their houses. Today, an 11 or 12 year old, without restrictions, can play FUT and make money because there is no parental control system in this mode. Belgium and the Netherlands have now taken up the matter.
That client, a man by the name of Madamad, also spoke to him Pepe, telling a respected sports paper to spend € 600 since the game was released in the Ultimate Team packs, by a prominent player who discovered it was Napoli's Kostas Manolas. “I didn't know him! Save a lot of money to get Manolas… People I know put in $ 2,000 or $ 3,000, crazy… The money I spent made me drop my paycheck. ”
