After showing us how to get a certain star striker to impersonate an old man
, and then invite our buddies around to feel the game
in FIFA 15
, EA has hit a serious note today.
The team behind the popular football simulation franchise has detailed three adjustments that they intend to implement in the Ultimate Team section of FIFA 15
. The enhancements are being applied as a result of misdemeanours committed by a minority of dishonest players in the equivalent mode in FIFA 14
. All of the changes relate to security enhancements, and the full details are quoted below:
We’ll be removing Trade Offers from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins. Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts.
This will also address “bid bumping”, where people would try and trick others into bidding far more than they wanted for a player item.
It was a tough decision, but this is the right step towards improving security, showing cheaters the red card, and keeping FUT safe for all FIFA fans.
The maximum number of Transfer Targets in FUT 15 will be set 50 player items after utilizing the EAS FC unlockable boosts. This means that you will be allowed to bid on up to 50 players at a time.
Origin Login Verification
Origin Login Verification is an extra layer of security that protects your FUT account from being accessed outside of your home console and PC. In order to ensure increased security for our fans, Origin Login Verification will be mandatory in the near future before you access the FUT 15 Web App.
A new trailer has also been released. In the following video, Marcel Kuhn, Associate Producer for FIFA
Ultimate Team, talks us through more enhancements that are being made in FIFA 15
. The main point is that players can be loaned for a limited number of games to allow you to see how they would fit into your team, before you decide to splash out and obtain their signature on a permanent basis. Furthermore, there will also be the option to create mock teams as another method of helping to narrow down future transfer targets, and you can share these teams with your friends to see how they shape up.
will kick off worldwide next Friday, September 26th.
