FIFA 21: error caused temporary "real money"

FIFA 21: error caused temporary real money


Yesterday, the confusion among many fans of the football game FIFA 21 was certainly great. When they visited the in-game shop for the "FIFA Ultimate Team" mode, one of the two purchase options was suddenly deactivated or no longer available. The only option was to purchase packs in-game using FIFA Points - the option to purchase with coins was not available.

FIFA Points are an in-game currency of FIFA 21 (buy now € 24.99 / € 29.99), which you can only purchase with real money. Deactivating an alternative purchase option would therefore more or less amount to a "real money obligation" for the "FIFA Ultimate Team" in-game shop. But that was by no means what EA Sports intended. The team immediately spoke up and said they would be investigating the issue more closely.

"We are investigating reports that special packs can only be purchased with FIFA Points. Updates will follow as soon as they are available Are available."

EA Sports kept its word and dealt with the problem very quickly. The purchase option with the help of coins was reactivated by early Thursday evening.

Turbulent days for FIFA 21

By the way, that's not the only reason why FIFA 21 hit the headlines these days. It was only recently that reports of illegal in-game sales by EA employees to players surfaced. According to the first results of an ongoing investigation, these allegations appear to be justified. The full scope of this scandal cannot currently be assessed.
