Twitch streamer snaps controller in half after terrible FIFA 21 goal

A Twitch streamer snapped his PlayStation 4 controller clean in half after conceding a truly disrespectful goal on FIFA 21.

FIFA is, almost undeniably, one of the most infuriating games there is. Questionable referee decisions, difficulties defending and skill move spam are all enough to send anyone mad, especially in modes such as Ultimate Team that are so dependent on consistently putting up good results.

For that reason, the game has probably helped cause a few injuries and broken devices in its time, when the frustration simply gets too much.

That said, sometimes people might take it a bit too far, as evidenced by this incredible clip, in which a Twitch streamer breaks his controller in half after conceding a goal.

FIFA 21 rage spells the end for controller

It looked as though Kamyk, who is also a FIFA esports commentator in Poland, was having a perfectly fun time during his FUT Draft match, tied 1-1 with his opponent but seemingly in fine spirits — but that quickly changed.

From the halfway line, the opponent’s Ansu Fati passed the ball to Timo Werner who cleanly glided through Kamyk’s defence as if they weren’t there at all, leaving space wide open for him to run into the box.

Then, rather than do the respectable thing and take the clear finesse shot into the corner of the goal, his opponent instead squared it into the middle of the box, essentially giving Fati an open goal to smack the ball into with no real counter.

Squaring it like this is as much a scummy move as you can find in FIFA. It has been for years, and the anger it induces in Kamyk is almost immediate, as he bends his controller and snaps it in half right there and then.

What makes it funny, though, is that the streamer simply picks up another controller off the side and gets going for kick off again, suggesting this might not be a one-time occurrence, so at least he keeps himself prepared.

We’ve all felt like Kamyk at one point or another while playing FIFA, though most of us probably manage to withstand the temptation to break something on a whim.


FIFA 21 Rulebreakers promo LIVE: player leaks, start time, predictions

EA SPORTS has begun officially unveiling this year’s Halloween promo event for Ultimate Team, and it looks like we’ll actually be getting something a little out of the ordinary in FIFA 21… “Rulebreakers.” Here’s everything we know so far.

The last few years have seen Ultimate Scream rule the last weeks of October. The Halloween themed promo was trotted out in Ultimate Team for the last three years, but the special event’s ‘reign of terror’ seems to be coming to an end.

Instead, a new “Rulebreakers” promo is coming soon. 

EA SPORTS teased the event on Twitter on Oct. 21, with only three letters ⁠— two Rs and an S ⁠— and a fragmented FUT card. Soon after, Dexerto data miner FutWatch confirmed the hidden word would eventually spell out ‘Rulebreakers.’

The following day, Oct. 22, EA SPORTS confirmed the promo’s name. They also revealed, “Rulebreakers leave behind their previous styles of play and transform into different kinds of stars with game-changing stat updates.”

When will the “Rulebreakers” promo begin?

FIFA’s spooky Ultimate Team promo ⁠— or at least, what Dexerto assumes is replacing the Ultimate Scream event this time around ⁠— is still based around Halloween. That means the promo will start this week, on Friday, October 23.

The event should run for just over a week, past the Halloween weekend.

If the timing on the “Rulebreakers” promo is the same as FUT’s spooky Ultimate Scream, we should see it last for just over a week. That means any special packs, challenges, and promo deals that hit Ultimate Team will last until November 2.

We’ll likely get a first-look reveal of the new promo event, and an upgraded team along with it, ahead of that 6 pm Friday release time. Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter accounts, @UltimateTeamUK, and @FutWatch, to see the news.

Rulebreakers predictions: new FIFA 21 upgrades?

Here’s where it gets a little tricky ⁠— EA SPORTS hasn’t really given us any clues about the potential upgrade team beyond the name. In fact, they haven’t even given us that yet, and we had to rely on Ultimate Team leaks to learn the truth.

It does sound like “Rulebreakers” could be one of two things. The first is those ‘destroyer’ players who pick up cards left and right, get stuck in on the pitch, and just rule the roost with their imposing presence in-game.

Everton striker Richarlison is a good Premier League shout for the “Rulebreakers” team.

The second could be more meta. The title, ‘Rulebreakers,’ could refer to cards featuring players out of position, and breaking the rules. Maybe we’ll see a 90+ pace center back ⁠— lord knows this meta needs one ⁠— or a 99 physical wingback upgrade.

This second suggestion is probably more likely, considering EA’s description of Rulebreakers: players will “leave behind their previous styles of play.”

EA has already confirmed two players for the promo too: Dries Mertens and Harry Kane. They also teased a third, a Brazillian star, but they have not yet confirmed it.

More possible ‘Rulebreaker’ players

  • Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
  • Diego Costa (Atlético Madrid)
  • Pepe (Arsenal)
  • Richarlison (Everton)
  • Erik Lamela (Tottenham)
  • David Luiz (Arsenal)
  • Luis Suarez (Atlético Madrid)
  • Harry Maguire (Manchester United)
  • Arturo Vidal (Juventus)
  • Nigel de Jong (Al-Shahania)
  • Hatem Ben Arfa (Bordeaux)
  • Radja Nainggolan (Inter Milan)

So there you have it ⁠— everything we know about FIFA 21’s new Rulebreakers Halloween promo so far. Make sure if you’ve got a few spare FUT coins you keep them in your back pocket; there could be some cracking cards on the way!

We’ll update this article when the promo begins. As always, stick with us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK for all the latest FIFA news, updates, and content.
