One of FIFA 12’s most popular game modes is ultimate team, however we are hearing reports of some people being hacked, which results in players and coins being stolen, today we want to know if you have been affected by this issue.
We are not sure exactly how this hack occurs, however one of my good friends assures me that he hasn’t opened any dodgy email etc and now has lost all of is players, he also lost 25,000 coins and tells me he had spent roughly £30 on Microsoft points on ultimate team packs. He rang EA today and they are looking into the matter, but things don’t look promising.
It is not just my friend who has experienced this, if you check out this post the same thing happened to a gamer when playing FIFA 11’s utimate team mode – he suggests he lost all of the players which £100’s worth of Microsoft Points got him, people say that it is his fault and must have not “had the correct security measures in place”, but this starts an interesting debate as lots of kids play these games, should they really need to know about phishing scams etc?
Obviously it is not EA’s fault that people have been scammed / hacked, but perhaps more measures could be put in place to avoid this, we would love to hear your suggestions and ideas in the comments section. Also please answer our poll question. Here’s some tweets which report similar issues:
