I’m sorry but these problems exist because people are dumb enough to buy in. I’m really having a hard time sympathizing with this level of stupidity. EA is a business, and a business wants to turn a profit. And they are because of idiots.

I actually feel bad for all the sports teams outside the game have to go through because of EA. Imagine angry gamer fans at a sporting event say hey you asshole how come I didn't get my card I spend 50k for. Just nuts. Sad how EA became this, 20 years ago they made the best games for fans, and it became this. It's a tragedy. Fifa, NFL,NBA, NHL, golf, or tennis any organization should stay away from this and put pressure on EA to change or go with a different organization, why does it have to be Electronic Arts. If this gets bigger it can start ruining the fan base from people going or watching games

I think it's really misleading of the person who did the statistics to represent the statistics as "X hours straight, 24/7".

It makes the actual timetable look less than it really is. The reality is that the average person spends a third of their life sleeping, nearly a further third working and commuting to a job, and a fair chunk of the remainder showering and doing chores- Most people, at best, could put 8 hours a day into the game. So that 2.5 years is actually 7.5+ years of commitment to the cause. Even if you take the unhealthy route and skip sleep and skimp on meals you're still only likely to reach 12 hours a day on average, which is still 5+ years of commitment to the cause.

It's insane. Absolutely insane.

I'm glad that the German Gouvernement is finally about to ban EA's Gambling & Lootbox practices off our country.

If you are spending money on microtransactions, you are a MORON, and need help. Your money, but you are contributing to companies focusing on greed rather than simply making amazing games.

That's more than enough time to get 99 on all stats on OSRS… twice. I can respect someone having dedication to their game, but for a game that get re-released yearly, this is too extreme for me to care at all. Also $110,000 for top tier team. The FIFA audience must be rich if they expect that kinda money

A better question is "Who the Hell is playing this shit?" Soccer is boring enough to watch, but playing a video game about it?

EA = Evil Arts
Calling out is necessary, but the real effect cames from not giving them your time (don't play the game) and your money. I know addiction here is serious a problem, but for the ppl that doesn't have this problem, don't be fool and hypocritical, not only complain, also don't play (try alternatives like pro evo) and don't spend money on the game. It's that simple. That's more effective then complaining. Speak also with you time and wallet.

Oh please, if they did their own calcs, they'd do what mcdonalds did- Make the numbers incredibly unrealistic to show "See, you can do it!"
Not sure if it'd be worse, really. Which is more deplorable, McDonalds listing that the average employee can make more than they actually do to evade that nasty business of min wage not being a livable wage, or EA faking the odds and gameplay of their gambling system to make it seem like it isn't one. I think McDonalds edges out.

Some games arent meant to give you the perfect hand. Having a perfect team in FIFA is like having the perfect hand on every poker game. Players seeking for it is just insane.

"…a mere 22,000 hours of gameplay…" and I was thinking that having more than 3000 hours of gameplay on No Man's Sky over the years was a lot

For 110,000 I'd just invest in a real team, at least then I may get returns for my cash.

Another awful thing about this whole EA fifa ordeal is that there will be ACTUAL players defending their business model and saying it isnt a problem as they steal their mums credit card for more cards

People keep buying the games with this crap in them.

It's kinda their own fault.

If their sales tanked so hard that they lost the exclusivity deal for the IP, the problem would sort itself out.

the funny thing is though it doesn't even really give you that much of an advantage due to their scripting mechanics, or "dynamic difficulty" as they call it, where tweaks are made mid game depending on who's winning / losing, it effects all players stats, makes your players run slower, shoot worse etc etc, and makes the other team WAYY better. it's just an illusion that it gives you an advantage, and it feels good having shiny cards.
