There's currently no information on when the week-long event will take place in 2021, so football fans should stay tuned for Madden 21 coins more updates to come. Legendary publisher EA is no stranger to controversy. Whether it's ads in UFC 4 or review bombing of their latest Madden NFL game, the company is frequently the target of players' ire.
EA's latest controversy, dubbed #EAGATE on Twitter, is wrapped up in the continuing controversy around loot boxes, especially from the supreme Team manner in FIFA 21. Ultimate Team is a mode that looks across EA's package of licensed sports games. It combines elements of fantasy sports-style team direction together with all the deck-building of a classic card game. The loot box component comes from packs which players can buy to boost their teams. Those microtransactions create Ultimate Team the very lucrative mode in EA's sports games.
On the one hand, it's easy to write off this for anyone without skin in the game. If someone's already spending tens of thousands of bucks opening packs, why should not they go straight to the source and get the players they need? However, for the players that are busy in Ultimate Team, it seems like a betrayal. Since Nick put it,"We grind/trade/open packs and can not touch these PIM players, but EA employees sell them to individuals covertly for $1,700?!?!" It generates an even wider gap between the haves and have-nots from the sport, without even the veneer of gamers getting high-rated players through ability.
EA confessed this in their reaction to the allegations. They stated that accounts were being used to"inappropriately" give players access to highly rated cards they had not earned through gameplay, opening packs, or other authorized means (i.e., watching Twitch streams).
They blamed it on compromised accounts or EA workers going into business for themselves. EA announced an investigation into the misconduct, promising to take action against any players and employees caught participate in the Ultimate Team black market. Though they did not define what mut 21 coins ps4 action would be taken against workers involved in the scandal, players will be prohibited forever.
