If you've logged in to FIFA 11
online recently and noticed that your stats have been reset, don't panic, it's a planned reset by EA to fix an exploit in the game.
A post from the forums at EA explains further:
A quick note to inform you about a server-side deployment for FIFA 11 on Xbox 360 and PS3. The deployment has just gone live.
The first thing you will have noticed is that individual leaderboards have been reset. This is because the FIFA team have fixed the flag exploit that some were using to gain an unfair advantage in the rankings. The playing field is now level again.
Good news for those becoming exasperated by the unscrupulous gamers online willing to use every possible advantage available. The new update tweaks some aspects of the server in order to bring a greater degree of stability to the online aspects of the game:
Today's deployment has also improved general server stability and improved matchmaking in Clubs. The team is still hard at work on further enhancements and fixes, though, and we'll report back on that soon.
