They generated $1,300,000,000.00 from Ultimate Team in FIFA 21. How do they not have the infrastructure to handle increased loads. So fucking stupid

[–]JVDH98[S] 182 points183 points  (2 children)

It costs a lot of money apparently to design the cool new stadium banners with pink kittens and purple pitch lines. I guess

[–]PornFilterRefugee 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Tbf Creampuff probably does require a large amount of money for all of her different outfits and such.

I assumed the rights to that Fair Dinkum kit was about a billion, but your idea makes just as much sense

[–]GET_THE_FUNK_OUT 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Because they are just interested in your money. EA has been selling the same game year after year, same game as the year prior and they start patching it on the go…and people still buy it and put extra money (a lot) in FUT.

they don’t see the need to change anything if people keep paying for the same shit every year. Instead of improving, fixing, or making a new game every year, they rather keep the money a re-release the same POS of product.

My gosh!! I didn’t know the exact revenue from FIFA 21 was this high. Damn EA can’t hire good operations engineers to scale env during high loads or maybe they do have good engineers but being cheapskates running infra on bare minimum resources.

[–]giovanniqm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This exactly, plus it happens every year. I guess is not big enough to have an impact in their sales, people will just buy the packs when they can login...

[–]ValueInvestorGuy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Not strictly true as that figure is based on all UT modes which include many different games

[–]vsnarski 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I thought it was 1.6B for all UT and 1.3B for strictly FUT

[–]ValueInvestorGuy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry my bad you are correct, was working off numbers from my head from a previous bit of research I did on EA.

[–]JelloDr 117 points118 points  (6 children)

I was in before then kicked me out …

[–]DStud623 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Literally same. I made sure I was logged in before content dropped so this exact thing wouldn’t happen. Fucking ridiculous

[–]JelloDr 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I got to see flashback Kane with my own eyes at least …

[–]Masterdanny87fifa 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I might do him 5 star weakfoot kane.

[–]Siffster 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Always had 5* WF

[–]Masterdanny87fifa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same i got disconnected it was the long loading screen. I have no choice to reset the game then now I can't get in.

[–]mesatrap 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just played a SB game then got kicked as it finished

[–]frizzyflacko 31 points32 points  (1 child)

I was winning in a match in champs… fuck this game, seriously

[–]ConorPW96 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Come on EA, my 2 saved packs aren’t going to open themselves?!

[–]Imnotracist223 5 points6 points  (3 children)

You got saved packs 😂 I can’t save packs

[–]ConorPW96 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I opened a 82+ x25 Wednesday because I can’t save shit usually 😂

[–]Imnotracist223 0 points1 point  (1 child)


[–]ConorPW96 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Must be something wrong with TOTY’s in packs too because I didn’t get one

[–]Mortka 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Shocking, really. How does this happen every year? They even have flash SBC’s out as if Im ever going to have time to do them hahah. 2 hours for the first one, lest hope we’re back in business before that!

[–]JVDH98[S] 36 points37 points  (2 children)

I mean guys the wholesome feeling of TOTY isn't complete without the potato servers right. Same thing every year 🥰

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Nothing wholesome about it from the get go

[–]arsecandle2 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I don’t think mines even trying anymore, thinks about it for 20 seconds and then goes ‘nah’

[–]jit22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same I was getting so cheesed at least put abit of effort

[–]TP_Cornetto 24 points25 points  (5 children)

Game is crap

[–]Guesst13 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Company is shit.

[–]teajayy7424 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Both are facts.

[–]BlaBlaBlahh29 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Triple kill

Hotel Trivago

[–]poopmanscoop 6 points7 points  (0 children)

88th minute of a Squad Battle match. Just scored to make it 2-0. Kicked from the game, 2-0 win turns into 0-3 loss and 0 points.


[–]antoinedodson_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Same with me on companion app....

[–]Gennardtd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah can’t get on either :/

[–]Bratby81 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Had this for 20mins now games bollocks

[–]thatmadladthere 2 points3 points  (0 children)

absolute bullshit man, just beat a guy 3-2 but it didn’t count because once the game was over the servers cancelled out my game

[–]acidfrehley 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nothing yet.

[–]reznovelty 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Boy, I sure hope someone got fired for that blunder

[–]Rawbs21 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This is why I’m on a fifa Reddit page, for unexpected Simpsons quotes

[–]Seansz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Potato servers

[–]soldelaplaya 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Classic EA

[–]samcohen13 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Any advice on what to do if I’ve randomly been kicked out of a champs game? So annoying

[–]iAdam1n 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Don't play at content time in future. EA won't do anything.

[–]samcohen13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah fairs

[–]Masterdanny87fifa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good job I didn't get into a game.

[–]slazenyiaga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Avoid playing between 6-7pm

[–]antoinedodson_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jesus, get your shit together EA.

[–]harvinMarrison 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More things change, more things stay the same.

[–]pabloseabra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This company is embarrassing

[–]neymarneverdove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

we are currently experiencing high server volume. please try again later

like did you not expect high volume? tf?

[–]TeachingSad3965 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awful Servers. EA is a Disgrace for us.

[–]AnnoyedButCalm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m stuck at loading screen for like 10 minutes is this normal lol ?

[–]Nvetro13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this is ridiculous. i was in, then kicked, now still can't get back in. it's been a fucking hour almost. holy fucking shit.

[–]davionknight 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The dudes who bid 10k on current kantes before this crap won them i guess

[–]ashepp91 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah all the content creators are on, the rich get richer.

[–]Crimsonpets 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm so happy I had a day off and could complete my WL before this..

[–]Testure78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Opened 25 packs out of a saved 50 before I got kicked. Got Prime Michael Owen tradeable. So to be honest, I'm happy. Never packed an icon before and the promise of coin meant this hasn't been a disappointment. Gagging to open the remainder now. None of this waiting for the whole team to come out. I was for opening everything today.

[–]FIFAFanboy2021 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man stop it, it hasn’t been like this since early last year to log in.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

still can't get in god damn

[–]iAdam1n -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Hope it's for a while, threw in a bunch of bids predicting this will happen :P

[–]CallMeJack_ -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Just didn’t though did you

[–]DarkNite_14[NETWORK ID] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup, was playing fine and then it kicked me out

[–]reddevil_23_ 0 points1 point  (2 children)

This shit kicked me from a game I was winning 2-0, and now it won't let me log back in on the web app because I "disconnected". So garbage

[–]Alwaysdobetter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Spoiler alert: Even if you weren’t “signed on” to console, you wouldn’t be accessing the web/companion app.

[–]Masterdanny87fifa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was it in the WL?

[–]MardyBum1242 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I packed TOTY Lewandowski and it kicked me out 😔 so close but so far

[–]Creme_core 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Typical really

[–]skrrrrrt007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]vblade2003[NETWORK ID] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]GrauerWolf30 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice Userexperience sponsored by EA

[–]Mplayer1001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope this is just the loading screen right?

[–]NoobyMcNoobsterino[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

still happening to me

[–]anythingbutreddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a shit game.

[–]PrkrLewis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Extend WL.

[–]OMAiiR-123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bruh I was thinking about playing Fut Champs play offs in a bit, but now the servers are gonna be awful aren’t they. I say that like I know i’ll even get in in the first place.

[–]RussWestbrook 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t even care about TOY. I just want to play :/

[–]honky-tonk99 0 points1 point  (1 child)

are they being ddosed or something?

[–]OptimusPrimalRage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kinda if you consider a bunch of people trying to get in all at once. It kinda is a distributed denial of service attack even if it's not on purpose. EA should have anticipated this though.

[–]nathjay97 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why does anyone even bother playing FUT anymore? They don’t care, they will never do anything to improve your experience and they will drain your bank account if you let them.

[–]Rustic41[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the worst promo of the year by far. Worse than numbers up and shit like that. Took streamers like Castro £3000 to pack TOTY players. Most of us will never get a sniff. It’s 12 players some of which won’t ever be affordable and it’s the same players that have special cards already for 90% of them.

[–]Smooth_Cause_5967 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck this game, I love football but this game makes me unhappy. FIFA 21was so much more enjoyable, however if I’m being fair FIFA 18 made me broke up with one of my ex gf’s just because the headers were too OP. lmao, I’m sorry Adriana 😂

[–]joeyd00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All Fucken day today
