Imagine being EA and calling a game that's so nefariously monetized that it's become a platform for shady black market activities like this "fun and ethical".

I can understand why they refused to pay for electricity. All of these "Electro" companies are pain in the bottom when it comes to connecting new user to their network. Businesses can wait for months to get access to high volume consumption. There's no way for an individual to power such farm without turning into business, paying taxes and paying for zillion of things (bribing utility companies and govt organizations so they will allow you to use your property for business). Even on consumer grade if I want to change heating system in my tiny flat from gas to electricity I will need to hire electrician so they can reinforce my existing power line and add few new outlets for heating devices. Simple? No, it isn't in Ukrainian reality. *Electro bastards will extort you - you have to pay for architect services (from them of course), they will draw you a plan how you should lay your power lines inside your very own flat. But I already have it, I just need to replace wires to ticker ones, does it really needs an architect? Then once you fight your way thru this stage you will turn into a milking cow and will pay doubled rate for electricity from now on because you're using more than a limit they set for an individual. Having water heating and room heating at winter automatically puts you into doubled rate. I have absolutely no sympathy for these utility companies as they're unethical bastards, monopolists who suck our blood at every opportunity. Someone stole electricity from them? I bet if they had a chance to pay for it they would do it. Why risking all that equipment for few bucks?

It doesn't sound that profitable. I expect they were only able to make a profit by not paying the $250000 a month electric bill
Janna Dark
Janna Dark 8 päivää sitten
we don't know for sure if they only mined for FIFA or maybe there was something else. I doubt people would assemble such farm to have small profit margin. At first SBU claimed they mined crypto currency and after we started to create memes and laugh at their stupidity they said it was ingame currency. But maybe it wasn't. Maybe it's a bot farm to get resources from other games, maybe even multiple. If you noticed consoles have disks ready. they might use it because the drive storage is full (why otherwise you will use disks?).

I mean if EA cared, they'd just implement a max player card limit so your "Dream Team" could only have so many high value cards. It would instantly fix a lot of the market shenanigans.

I was looking forward to buying Battlefield 2042, but after seeing how disgustingly greedy EA is I just don’t feel like supporting such a scummy company. It’s a shame because the game really caught my attention. :/ I haven’t bought a FIFA game since 2017 or more btw and PES has been better for a dew years now anyway. is PES bad with their ultimate team? prolly actually decent, no?

You know what, let em have it. If you're that obsessed with it, that you absolutely need to have all those players on your Fifa game team, why shouldn't folks run you to the cleaners. :D Hell, the devs should offer an in-game purchase of those as well. 7000 for a guaranteed player 5000 for a random same tier player 12k for 3 random players 50k for pick your own team option. Actually, it should be even more. If there are folks that are willing to pay for that, then take their money. As long as there are sheep, there will be wool. Yes, EA is doing scummy stuff, they are a corporation after all, but this farm isn't a product of EA's practices, it's the product of the demand certain mad players created. Cheers

This is just fucked up from top to bottom. And I'm not talking about the Ukrainian(s) that did the farming, they're just the result of EA's and of course FIFA's politics. People really should just stop watching Football completely, so FIFA, the UEFA and all League organizations dry out, and the sport starts being about the sport again. But as long as people just continue throwing money at these organization and EA, nothing will ever change.

The way how they will prevent bots farming point: you cant get points throu gaming anymore, only buying. They will have dealt with this kind of problem and they would froce people to buy packs and gamble. Of course they wont do it because of the outrage they would cause but i am sure it was on the whiteboard once

LeetHaxington 10 päivää sitten
Since you can earn these rewards for "free" in Fifa, I guess the news article here need to correct their mistake and that $250k monthly electricity bill is actually $0. Also the cost of 4000 ps4's is $0, along with the staff for this operating and the software they had running all of this, etc. Wow, $0, it's amazing how they give you these things for free if you just pull yourselves up by the bootstraps.

HappyBeezerStudios - by Lord_Mogul
The fact that there is a way to make the whole thing profitable means it *is* pretty much crypto farming. Especially since it's pretty much proof-of-work mining. Which now means that EA not only offers gambling but also currencies...

At this point there is only one solution: Dear tax authorities, please start to tax all these various in game currencies, which supposedly have no value. Then finally all this non-sense stops and we go back to good game design. And, if not, well at least we can lower the tax rate and continue to enjoy our free universities and hospitals. And the people that love these disgusting grindy games finally pay for their sins of destroying the games we loved. Thanks in advance from all people across Europe.
