As part of the ongoing Team of the Season So Far (TOTSSF) promo, EA SPORTS have released a special 90-rated Community Champions/Player Moments card for Leon Goretzka in Ultimate Team, and we’ve got the requirements, cheapest solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete it.

Identical to Player Moments in terms of card-design and stat boosts, Community Champion is a brand new type of card in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team that celebrates a player’s off-field contributions during this current time of crisis.

Following the one they released on April 26 for Aymeric Laporte, EA have also rolled one out for Germany/Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka, recognizing the €3.9 million he’s “raised for those that need it most right now.”

Goretzka Player Moments in-game stats

This is already Goretzka’s fifth card in FIFA 20, following his base gold, Champions League, In-Form, and UCL Live versions. As already one of the best central midfielders in the game, it’s no surprise that his new Player Moments item features some impeccable stats.

Every single one of the in-game stats are in the green except for three: volleys (79), penalties (70), and balance (78). The card screams box-to-box, as it’s hard to find a CM that’s more well rounded than this one, outside of ICONS and TOTY items.

In fact, his combined 2,508 in-game stats ranks 13th out of all CAM/CM/CDMs, better than the likes of Prime Moments Ballack, Gerrard, and 90-rated Gullit.

Requirements, solutions, cost

This SBC has a whopping three squad-building components – two 86-rated teams and one 87-rated, all three requiring at least one In-Form or TOTW Moments.

GERMANY

  • Players from Germany: Min 1
  • In-Form or TOTW Moments players: Min 1
  • Squad rating: Min 86
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Players in squad: 11

  • Squad rating: Min 87
  • Team Chemistry: Min 65
  • Players in squad: 11
  • Reward: Rare Electrum Players Pack

As you’d expect, this SBC is far from cheap; FIFA database website FUTBIN estimates the cost of completing it will set you back 530,000 coins on PS4, 495,000 on Xbox One, and 546,000 on Origin PC.

Here are the current cheapest solutions for all three components, not requiring loyalty or the use of position-change cards.

Keep in mind that the volatile nature of the FUT market means that player prices are always fluctuating, so the cost of doing this SBC and/or its individual components could go up or down depending on when you do it.

The cool thing about squad building challenge is that it has no expiry date, which means you can certainly spend the next few weeks saving up for the card if it’s one that would slot nicely into your squad.

However, the fact that EA have released this SBC means that Goretzka is unlikely to receive a TOTSSF card, so it looks like this could be the best version of him we see in FIFA 20.

EA SPORTS hit with FIFA 21 scripting lawsuit for “dictating outcomes”

EA SPORTS has been hit with a new United States federal lawsuit, which alleges Electronic Arts “unlawfully increases game difficulty” ⁠— dubbed ‘scripting’ by a number of FIFA 21 fans ⁠— in a deliberate effort to sell more Ultimate Team packs.

The lawsuit, Zajonc v. Electronic Arts, was brought to Californian court by three FIFA 21 gamers, Jason Zajnoc, Danyael Williams, and Pranko Lozano. In the suit, they claimed EA SPORTS uses “deceptive practices” and “false advertising” to drive sales in their FUT mode.

The lawsuit suggests EA willingly and “unlawfully” tricks FIFA players into buying Ultimate Team loot boxes by “utilizing artificial intelligence technologies that adjust game difficulty dynamically.” As mentioned, this is known as ‘scripting’ by fans.

Zajonc v. Electronic Arts alleges FIFA 21 alters matches to sell loot boxes.

The main charge laid by the plaintiffs is based around EA’s failure to alert FIFA 21 customers about ‘scripting’ features, which are having a direct impact on matches.

“Unbeknownst to most… EA utilizes technologies like ‘Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment’ and ‘Adaptive Difficulty.’ These technologies use heuristic prediction and intervention to dictate or even influence outcomes, thereby keeping gamers more engaged,” the suit, filed in November, reads.

These features, DDA and AD, are designed to adjust player stat points ⁠— both on the front of the card, and in-game ⁠— in an effort to influence the result. This can lead to bad passes, poor shots, and wildly varying pace for FIFA players.

EA is “unlawfully” tricking players into buying FIFA points and Ultimate Team packs, the Californian lawsuit alleges.

All of this, the plaintiffs allege, is designed to do one thing: sell more FIFA 21 Ultimate Team packs, dubbed “loot boxes” in similar cases. “This [triggers] a self-perpetuating cycle,” the complaint charges, “leading them to purchase additional player packs in hopes of receiving better players and being more competitive.”

According to the plaintiffs, EA SPORTS has violated Californian consumer protection laws, has conducted false advertising and unjust enrichment through their practices.

The case, which has not yet been certified as a class action, also regards EA’s other juggernaut franchises, including Madden and NHL. The NFL and hockey titles are two more games in EA’s stables that utilize an ‘Ultimate Team’ mode.

FIFA 21 players often report shots going off target, wrong passes, and slow players as "scripting" kicks in.

EA has responded to the Zajonc v. Electronic Arts lawsuit. The FIFA 21 publishers wrote, “We believe the claims are baseless and misrepresent our games.”

This is far from the first time EA SPORTS has come under fire for Ultimate Team packs either. The publishers have been accused of operating an “illegal” gambling system in Canada, and are facing $11.7m worth of fines in the Netherlands and France for similar reasons.

Earlier this year, EA hit an “all-time high” in FIFA microtransactions. The company made nearly $1 billion through in-game sales alone in Sep-Dec 2019. A slice of this was then used to lure David Beckham into an exclusive £40m rights deal.
