EA has been forced to take the popular FIFA 13 Ultimate Team mode offline to fix several issues with the modeâ€™s auction and trade systems.
Online gameplay, trading, and store purchases have all been disabled, the mobile and web apps are also offline. Players have been reporting issues such as disappearing trade cards, cards getting stuck in the trade pile, and purchased cards blocked from being added to squads.
â€œFUT13 is temporarily down until further notice while we address the trade pile issue. This is to ensure that more users do not become affected and an optimal experience can be sustained in the future,â€ the publisher said. â€œWeâ€™ll keep you updated as soon as we have additional information throughout the coming days. Other FIFA 13 online game modes will not be affected.â€
