EA Explains Fifa 15 Ultimate Team Changes, Wants to Deal With Bots and Coin Farmers

EA just recently announced in a blog post the introduction of price ranges in Fifa 15 Ultimate Team. At the time not much was explained as to why these changes are being made but it was obvious that it was due to fair play.

Now, EA has come forward with a detailed explanation. According to EA, FUT should be fair and fun for all, so over the past few weeks they have made some adjustments.

We have implemented a lot of changes to FUT in the past several weeks, including our decision to make the Transfer Market inaccessible via the Web and Companion App, and the introduction of Price Ranges within the Transfer Market.

EA wants to make life difficult for coin farmers and cheaters. Such people generate FUT coins illegitimately in the game via bots and phishing scams. As result, coins are flooded in the market and prices of high value players go way up.

So, vast majority of FUT players are unable to get their favorite players in the team. However, things are changing:

The introduction of Price Ranges has helped restrict illegitimate coin transfers on the FUT Transfer Market, and balance player item prices so they reflect the current marketplace, but finding that right balance will take some time – we have a team dedicated to finding that balance.

EA further said that since implementing these changes, they have seen positive signs for restoring FUT balance. As for access to the Marketplace via web or companion app, it will be back soon.

New Fifa 15 Ultimate Team Update: Issues, Transfers, Bug Fixes

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is one of the most popular Android games on the market, so don’t be surprised if you hear about it in the news. A new update has been released for FIFA 15 UT, and it addresses some key issues while adding transfers, but some users have reported that the update broke some things, so it’s not perfect.

This game has had its fair share of updates in the past, but they seemed to do more harm than good. Many users have reported various issues with the game, mostly involving the mandatory Facebook authorization. Users reported all sorts of things from freezes and crashes to motorization bugs. FIFA 15 UT devs have since responded to those reports and attempted to fix them by rolling out various updates. The current version is 1.3.1 and besides a team rosters update that brings players like Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina to Chelsea, it also adds performance enhancements to the mix, along with various bug fixes. Transfers are finally here, and this is a feature that’s been demanded for a long time now. Still, bugs are being reported by a lot of users on both the iOS platform as well as Android.

One of said problems is apparently a glitch that brings users back to the homepage. This may be another authorization issue or a networking issue, but it’s a very common bug right now. A lot of users are also reporting a bug that prevents the game from connecting to the EA servers. One player, for instance, says that he hasn’t been able to play once since he updated the game. You can see how this could be a problem for most players, especially considering that this buggy state of affairs has been going on for a long time. Hopefully, the developers will do something about it and roll out a big update to solve all of this.

Have you updated to 1.3.1 yet? If so, how does it behave for you? Any bugs encountered so far? Let us know by leaving a comment.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team transfer market changes leaves fans fuming

The new Price Range feature aims to set the highest and lowest Coin prices that each item can be sold on the Transfer Market, including players, in-forms, consumables, and club items.

The changes are supposed to Help FUT gamers understand the value of the players in their club, make high-rated players more attainable for all FUT gamers and ensure a level playing field and further restrict illegitimate coin transfers on the Transfer Market.

EA has confirmed that the Transfer Market on PC has returned with Price Ranges enabled, with PlayStation and then Xbox to follow, following an extensive maintenance period earlier today.

Although the new FUT item Price Ranges will differ from current prices, their relative value to other player items on the Transfer Market will remain consistent in order to maintain a level playing field for everyone, a post from EAsports reads.

We believe the long-term benefits of this new change will make FUT more fun and fair for everyone.

But the new changes have sparked a backlash on Twitter, with one of the top trending terms featuring the hashtag #RIPFUT.
