EA is now investigating what seems to be called EAGate, which revolves around a direct EA Employee selling FIFA Ultimate Team Cards for cash. Talking about getting your dream team ready? The allegation has first taken place on Twitter with hashtag #EAGATE, a tweet that discovered a chatter with what’s supposed to be an EA employee, who delivers priority in-game services for real money. Why buy loot boxes in the first place and condone the lottery?
Below you can find a couple of the leaked conversations between the potential buyer and the seller.

Fans are now scared that the balance of the FUT game mode is completely distorted, but EA is here to settle their rage. Earlier, EA notified on Twitter that they are aware of the recent allegations that are circulating on social media. They’ve also posted that an investigation regarding the issue is currently underway and judging by EA’s statement, the individual behind this treachery will be punished.

It’s sad to see how one individual wants to gain on the company’s back, and selfishly ruin the whole balance in FUT 21. What’s even more surprising is that up to this day, people are still trying to find the powerful individual that will grant their dream team. While all of that is ongoing, others are trying to open loot boxes in an honest way, hoping to get the best they could. I doubt they’d have been doing that if they knew about this guy earlier.
