EA Sports is banishing cheaters in FIFA Ultimate Team. With FIFA 15 on the horizon it has put plans in place to rid the game of bots and game currency exchanges. Here’s what is being combated in FIFA titles: overloading servers, phishing, compromising other player accounts, and unauthorized exchange of virtual currency. Those who manipulate in-game exploits in FIFA Ultimate Team but using bits to automatically buy items off the Transfer Market and farm coins to sell online for real money will no longer be tolerated. This is the main reason trading in the FUT Web App has been unavailable since May 9, since EA found bots are generating “four times as many Transfer Market searches than all human FUT players combined.” Therefore, gamers detected using bots, third party bot services, or scripts “for any purpose will be subject to our ban process.” Those who use bots to farm coins, or buy and sell coins will result in an FUT account ban, possibly even a full EA account ban. This will happen immediately or after a warning or FUT Club reset. Participating in this form of cheating will cause the player’s entire FUT Club, FUT account, and FIFA online access being banned. Hundreds of thousands of FIFA 14 accounts have been banned since February for coin selling and buying Those who violate the Terms of Service outline by EA in its FIFA games will also be banned. A player can check if their account as been banned by accessing their EA SPORTS Football Club Alerts from the FIFA 14 main menu, or look for an email. The email will be sent to the address used by the player’s Origin account within 24-72 hours of action being taken – including an account ban. Finally, cheaters who falsify match results in order to move up the FIWC leaderboards in FIFA Interactive World Cup should know that these leaderboards are being cleaned bi-weekly for cheaters. This is to ensure “a level competitive environment.” Source VG247.
