FIFA 21 face ANOTHER attack with formal Lawsuit

It is safe to say that FIFA 21 has not had the best luck with the fans, especially after the sheer disappointment of its predecessor, FIFA 20. The latest in the FIFA 21 hate news is a lawsuit against developers EA. 

The lawsuit against EA was filed in California (surprise, surprise, America is at it again), by the trio of Jason Zajnoc, Danyael Williams and Pranko Lozano accusing EA of “deceptive practices” and “false advertising” to engage more people into its Ultimate Team mode. 

It is no secret that EA are money-minded developers and heavily promote the Ultimate Team mode every single year. Their primary income via the mode is through the sale of loot boxes, or the Ultimate Team packs which allow players to choose more real-life characters to play with. 

The lawsuit itself reads as follows:

“Unbeknownst to most… EA utilizes technologies like ‘Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment’ and ‘Adaptive Difficulty.’

“These technologies use heuristic prediction and intervention to dictate or even influence outcomes, thereby keeping gamers more engaged.”

The Ultimate Team mode has been labelled as gambling, according to the lawsuit.

An EA representative, when asked about the situation of the lawsuit, defended the company by saying, “We believe the claims are baseless and misrepresent our games.”

This is not the first public attack that EA have had to handle in the last week, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic also taking to Twitter to voice his comments on image rights violations conducted by FIFA. 

The Swede accused EA of buying rights that FIFA did not have the authority to sell and teased an investigation into the matter. The player’s agent, Mino Raiola further came out and said that 300 or more players were willing to join Zlatan in the case, with stars like Gareth Bale among the lot. 

EA have been accused of scripting their games in older editions by fans a lot of times in the past. However, the company maintains that there are no such mechanisms in place.
