FIFA streamer begs for EA to fix game after bugs cost him online match

FIFA YouTuber and streamer Mavric says “enough is enough” and called on EA to fix the game-breaking bugs that caused him problems and cost him goals in the competitive Ultimate Team mode.

It’s bad enough when your opponent beats you, but when the game beats you as well, it’s hard to maintain your composure and keep calm.

In FIFA’s Ultimate Team mode, players create teams consisting of the cards they’ve collected or purchased, and compete in offline or online competition for rewards and bragging rights.

Following an online match where bugged out gameplay cost him not one, but two goals given to the opponent, streamer and YouTuber Mavric took to Twitter the showcase how serious in the in-game issues are, and called on developer EA to do something about it.

The first goal shown is the one Mavric says is the slightly less egregious goal, but still somewhat problematic. He shows his opponent’s pass getting away from them, yet his adversary’s Kylian Mbappé is still able to magically recover the loose ball, then twist their legs unnaturally to get a shot off, and then have it bounce off the goalkeeper’s back for a Mavric own goal.

But the kicker, he alleges, is the second goal, which he sarcastically refers to as the “crème de la crème.” Upon first glance, it looks like the biggest issue is the fact that his opponent is clearly offside and interferes with the goalkeeper’s ability to block the shot.

However, upon closer inspection, it’s actually way worse than it initially seems, as the ball passes directly through the torso of the offside attacker, and ends up in the back of the net. Other players shared similar things happening to them.

Even pro players, like QLASH’s Nicolò Mirra, had the same thing happen to them.

“Let it sink in,” Mavric says. “Like Ben Yedder (the offside attacker) quite literally does here.” The salt on the wound, which the streamer doesn’t even mention aloud, is that Ben Yedder actually got credit for the goal on the recap page, despite the ball literally phasing through him.

Frustrated and lost for words, Mavric called upon EA to fix the issues with FIFA, citing the amount of money their players spend on packs like Team of the Year and Headliners. “Please do the right thing and actually fix the game now, please, that’s all we ask.”

Players have infamously been vocal toward the developers regarding other issues in Ultimate Team, such as a broken pick rewards system, and even criticizing them for only fixing certain issues in a timely manner.

EA SPORTS have dropped a handful of double upgrade squad building challenges into FIFA 21. Here, we’ve got cheap solutions for the Premier League and Bundesliga SBCs.

As the FIFA year unfolds, EA SPORTS rolls out plenty of new content – especially when it comes to Ultimate Team.

There are new cards, packs, players, and plenty of things to get your hands-on – with the majority of these coming through Squad Building Challenges.

In the newest set, EA have released double upgrade SBCs where you can get two rare players from a league of your choice. However, we’re focusing on the Premier League and Bundesliga for now.

FIFA 21 has many good attacking players, but not a lot are better than Bayern’s top striker.

Premier League & Bundesliga Double Upgrade SBC requirements

The requirements for both challenges are simple, and identical as well, bar needing to change it up for the league you’re after.

You’ll need to hand over 11 rare, gold players, with at least six of those coming from the league you’re doing – so, six Premier League players for the Premier League SBC and six from the Bundesliga for the Bundesliga SBC.

You can pick 11 rare players, there’s nothing stopping you, but if you decide to mix in other leagues, bare in mind that you will need a minimum of 70 Team Chemistry to complete both SBCs. Squad Rating doesn’t matter here. 

  • Bundesliga 81+ Double Upgrade: Min. 6 players from Bundesliga, exactly 11 gold players, Min. 70 Team Chemistry.
  • Premier League 81+ Double Upgrade: Min. 6 players from Premier League, exactly 11 gold players, Min. 70 Team Chemistry.

Now, the challenge is ideal for anyone who has a tonne of fodder cards laying around, but if you don’t, and need to build the team from scratch, it won’t cost too much.

According to FUTBin, both challenges will cost anywhere between 9,000 and 11,000 coins regardless of your console. Though, we’ve got a few solutions that should save you some coins. 

For completing the SBC, you’ll get two players that are at least 81-rated from your selected league. If you want to keep trying your luck, well you can, as the challenge is repeatable.
