Price Ranges Added to FIFA 15 Ultimate Team to Counter Illegal Coin Purchasing
In an effort to tackle the growing issue of illegal coin purchases, EA has decided to issue price limits for players in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
The feature is designed to set the lowest and highest price for each player when put for sale in the virtual market. This system also means the end to open bidding by players. Each sale now requires users to set a buy-now price.
According to EA, the problem of illegal sale of gold coins in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team has ended up inflating the prices of players. This ultimately has led to a captivating market that’s not entirely friendly for those who are earning coins legitimately.
Unfortunately for the company, the players are not too happy with the new price ranges. There’s currently a campaign being run on Twitter where players are making themselves heard. EA’s history being voted as the worst company in America is a fact that is being raised quite often in the past 24 hours.
In the past, EA has adopted other methods to counter the problem. It detailed a new banning process that would seek out illegal sellers and buyers, as well as removed the option to trade with friends directly.
The new system has already been implemented on PC and consoles. For more information, you can head to the official FAQ.
