FIFA 17 exploit causes FUT Champions cancellation

Recently, EA rolled out a new patch Title Update 4 to fix various problems. Problems such as being able to create custom player positions in Ultimate Team in the team management screen in a match, which created unbalanced formations.

Gamers could even change up player positions via custom positions in the team management screen without it negatively affecting team chemistry.

EA fixed problems like this. What they didn’t know is that it opened up a much larger problem.

After TU4/patch 1.05 rolled out, gamers found a glitch that allowed them to disconnect from the match but still get the win for it. Essentially, this glitch tricked the game into thinking the other player had quit and punished the player who did not disconnect and rewarded the player who did.

Many gamers were furious with the fact that they were receiving losses when the other player quit. Huge numbers of people voiced their concern to EA.

In result of this, EA has decided to temporarily close the competitive gaming mode FUT champions.

The tournament in FUT takes place every weekend. This weekend, FUT Champions has officially been canceled.

The official statement is here

“Hey FIFA fans,

As part of our commitment to keep FUT Champions the most fair and fun place to compete, we are cancelling this week’s FUT Champions Weekend League while we address some technical issues.  You can see the updated FUT Champions schedule in the FUT Champions HUB.

If you had already qualified for this week’s FUT Champions Weekend League, your qualification will carry over to next week.

In addition, qualification for the Ultimate Team Championship Series will be based on Weekends 1, 2, and 4 within January.


The FIFA Team”

We will keep a close eye on how this develops. For updates on FIFA, stay tuned to Sports Gamers Online.
