I admit I feel differently about this story after the EA CEO Pay and him giving the order to layoff employees at EA goes......anybody else struggling with similar ethical feelings and concerns?

Ehhh... not exactly pot meets kettle, the cardsharks at least deliver for what people want to get, with EA you can remortgage your home and still end up without anything. Disgusting on either end though.

I don't think you understand, at those prices, getting a legends card for ONLY 1700 dollars? That's extremely cheap compared to how many packs you'd have to buy to get a reasonable chance at one.

If the top management is without integrity, it's not surprising that the bottom layers of the company are too. Guess, that is the pervasive culture of the company.

I don’t see why card rarity is even an issue for FIFA players. You’re just gonna basically reroll next year anyway when the new version of the game comes out, what does it matter?
alfalfa6945 21 päivä sitten
Wouldn't it be profitable to, say, "pretend" to have "rogue" employees selling these packs? Think of all the people who wouldn't pay though the game for these thing because it costs too much, so why not offer a "back channel" on the "low down" and open up even more revenue stream by now having a price (though still quite high) that more people might go for... And if we get caught, we have "Plausible Deniability" - "rogue employees". EA Boardroom: "MAKE THIS HAPPEN, NOW!"

Are they really going to ban players who are willing to shell 1700 bucks for one virtual card? Most likely these are people who pay tens of thousands for every FIFA game. And they're going to risk banning them? I doubt it.

I'm glad i can put food on the table. I may not make these substantial amounts of money, but I am happy with what I get every month. Plus I am able to put some money aside, in order to be able to afford the guitar amp I want. But seeing what's going on with the live services, loot boxes and other attrocities nakes me sad. It sucks to be EA and it sucks to be the ones still spending so mucg money on so much crap!

It's a shame that people snitched, because I'd love it if the EA employees could continue to fuck over EA. In all honesty, the "black market" was actually more honest and transparent than the game *actually* is 💀 Maybe they'd have enough money to earn a living wage that way too. Hope people keep trying to stick it to the man.

And what if EA did sell the card them self? Use a middle man, sell on the black market, and nobody can track where the money is going. This way they still get the money out of places where loot- boxes are unlawful. The system is sick enough for this to be reality.

Yong, gonna be real with ya. I think you need to tone it down a little bit. I enjoy your content, have done so for years, partly because you are critical and call companies out on their bullshit. But when you get to ranting or giving a cynical remark after every single sentence you read from an article the video gets a different tone to what it normally is. And me personally ain't liking it because when it's laid on this thick, your point kind of gets lost in my opinion.

This is how the alcoholic beverage industry works as well, they encourage safe and healthy habits while 60% of their profits come from the top 10% of drinkers (aka people who suffer from alcoholism). Billy and Sally spend 50 bucks over the course of the games life in the cash shop but somebody with addiction issues is gonna blow stacks of cash that amount to nothing and that's what the AAA gaming industry is raking it in over. And their corollary black market sellers as well apparently lmao

But he didn't do anything wrong. That employee did his job: EA taught him how to steal, and steal he did. But then when he gets caught, it becomes a case of "I have nothing to do with this person and have no affiliation to his 'crimes' whatsoever". So full of sh*t. Hey EA, you can't criticise your employees inappropriate behaviour when they learned from your example, dumba**

I wouldnt be surprised if EA started making you pay outright for players for a limited time for a set amount of coins. They probably not going to fire the employees but ask for a 52% of the earning money and tell them to keep on going through with selling but split the profits.

This black market occurring is objectively a good (or even great thing). Let's look at the positives: 1. Some players who are addicted to the game actually got their cards, and probably spent way *less* than they would otherwise. (This is still not a good outcome, mind you. Just a better one) 2. EA did not receive a penny on those transactions. 3. This black market being uncovered *greatly* devalues the entire system. Less players will be willing to spend as much or any money. This damages EA's bottom line. 4. If players weren't aware just how bad the chances of a great card were prior to this, the are aware now. This will further make it less tempting to bother spending obscene amount of money to obtain those player cards. 5. It's calls additional attention to the gambling problem with EA games, and the industry as a whole. 6. This situation can be used as evidence against EA (and perhaps other companies) in court cases across the world. 7. There is a slightly higher chance now of the gambling mechanic going away. If not disappearing, then at least more visible odds and/or greater odds in players' favor. 8. Shareholders are going to be pissed as hell over this, and the execs will have to answer to the board and will likely address this in the next earnings call. 9. If players are REALLY lucky, this might just help topple the exclusive contracts EA has with sports organizations, and for the first time in literally decades, there will be actual competition in the licensed sports games market. Negatives: 1. A small chance that if the odds are explicitly stated in response to this situation, and those odds are made more reasonable, it could have the opposite effect and make more players willing to gamble to obtain the best players, since their chances are now in the realm of sanity. Overall, I see this as both a short-term and long-term victory for games, gamers and the industry as a whole.

Anyone who played FIFA post 2010, despite it being abundantly clear to anyone with fucking eyes that it was a ponzi scheme to make EA egregious amounts of money for LITERALLY zero effort, are directly responsible for this. FIFA series games haven't been worth the buy in since 2010, and I cannot stress how blatantly OBVIOUS this fact is, I've spent years telling people that it's just a scam, but no. Now this. Congrats, you are responsible for this being made possible, and you are the only ones that can fix this.

I also don’t get why clubs and leagues allow EA to use their names and players etc...basically this means they approve the EA way of making money as long as they get a little bit for licensing.....should peolple be urging the clubs to stop working with ea? (For a year or so) this means ultimate team will lose all its appeal and ea wil be forced to change. It would also give other games (like PES) to obtain the rights to competitions or clubs ea has exclusivity to...although i think a lot of people wouldnt want something this drastic to happen...
