EA and FIFA have a questionable monetization practice based on packs with random rewards, turning FIFA 23’s online mode, Ultimate Team. in a Pay to win roulette where whoever invests the most money generates the most rewards. Despite the criticisms, EA assures that this model is legitand recently defended it by assuring that they will not turn away from this service because of the “great welcome from the community”.
Why are they defending him now? Basically, because the British government decided do not legislate against this model
We wholeheartedly believe that Ultimate Team and FUT packs, which have been in the game for over a decade, are part of FIFA that players love – fans love that the game reflects real-world emotion and strategy. . Giving players the ability to spend if they choose is fair,” EA’s statement read.
EA has no plans to remove Ultimate Team packs in FIFA 23
Complaints arise when an unfair gaming model is created for those who cannot pay, turning the internal market into an exclusion for the poor. There is also a possible problem of addiction, even more so when we talk about children who play and live Ultimate Team with youtubers and others. With all that, EA preaches that its model is loved by the community.
It’s w orth saying that spending is completely optional in our game, and we don’t encourage spending in lieu of earning rewards through gameplay. FUT packs work the same whether paid or earned, and most players don’t spend in-game at all. For example, nine out of 10 open FUT packs have been won on FIFA 22
Although, in the last matches succeeded in regulating the ease of obtaining new players and better resources for your staff without having to pay, the exponential growth provided by the injection of cash is unfair. When some already have everything in two weeks, others struggle to have half of it in several months.
Almost a month from the release of latest FIFA with this name, in this case FIFA 23, the spotlight is on the monetization model and its function within online competition. The game will be released at the end of September and will feature many new features in its gameplay, as well as new animations and much more.
