On the one hand, it's easy to write this off for mut coins madden 21 anybody without skin in the game. If someone's already spending thousands of bucks opening packs, why should not they go straight to the source and get the players that they need? However, for the players that are busy in Ultimate Team, it seems like a betrayal. As Nick put it,"So we grind/trade/open packs and can't touch these PIM players, but EA employees sell them to people covertly for $1,700?!?!" It generates an even wider gap between the haves and have-nots in the game, without even the veneer of players earning high-rated players through skill.

EA acknowledged this in their reaction to the allegations. They said that accounts were being used to"inappropriately" give players access to highly rated cards that they hadn't earned through gameplay, opening packs, or other authorized means (i.e., watching Twitch streams). They blamed it on either compromised accounts or EA employees going into business for themselves.

EA announced an investigation into the misconduct, promising to take actions against any players and employees caught taking part in the Ultimate Team black market. Though they did not define what actions could be taken against employees engaged in the scandal, players will be prohibited forever.

The offending players will not have much of a leg to stand on when they are banned. Beyond exactly what it does into the game's integrity, it's a violation of EA's User Agreement. The banned players will join an exclusive club that no participant would wish to become part of. That includes a YouTuber who had been prohibited from all of EA's games and an Irish teenager who insulted legendary player Ian Wright with racial slurs on Instagram.

EA has also finished the practice of rewarding discretionary items indefinitely. It was a method for VIPs like pro soccer players, EA employees and star partners to be given Ultimate Team content automatically without breaking it. They explain This offer did not extend to"professional video game influencers" in an attempt to dispel the notion that EA was providing streamers with mmoexp madden 21 coins enviable Ultimate Team players around the sly
