FIFA players plan to boycott in-game purchases

Just in time for Black Friday.

A number of FIFA players are choosing to boycott in-game purchases in the hopes that EA will fix the game’s problems.

A Change.org petition has garnered over 25,000 petitions, asking for EA to fix a number of issues from simple issues like kit numbers to reducing the exhausting 40 matches required for the Weekend League.

#FixFifahas also picked up on Twitter, with users sharing their complaints, asking well-known YouTubers to join the cause or simply simply showing off silly bugs.

Other complaints have popped up elsewhere, with the Change.org post linking to a Reddit post listing all of the complaints.

Following the huge uproar over Star Wars: Battlefront 2, EA will likely want to avoid further negative attention. Black Friday is typically a big deal for FIFA, with discounts on a huge number of in-game purchases. Whether this boycott takes hold properly and has an effect will remain to be seen.
