If the source code for FIFA 21 is out there then I would hope someone digs through and finds the true drop rates for that Ultimate Team mechanic. I would love to see just how scummy the numbers really are for pulling a good player.

Drop rate? Don’t you mean EA’s patented “Surprise mechanics”? Which are totally not gambling at all. (/s)

People care about FIFA?

lmao I'm more interested in the Frostbite source and seeing if it can be open-sourced and implemented into other engines and frameworks.

More of a morbid curiosity really, I don't genuinely care about FIFA, I just want to know how badly FIFA players are getting dicked over and laugh at them.

No way it could be open-sourced. You'd get legal action very quickly. Even when Microsoft Windows code was leaked, people working on open-source implementations avoided it so that their code would not open them up to liability.

Europeans do, though I’d argue that they would buy anything with a football in it.

I'd love to know if they have some code that changes all the drop rates somehow when a streamer is playing.

They probably manually modify it; all you need to do is change the values of a couple of integer variables. Builds specific to "influencers" are nothign new.

God I'm scared what they'll do with all the racing game licences they acquired recently.

Engine parts from packs?

Imagine buying the source code for Fifa 21 to find it's just the same as last year

Last year?, not even. Pretty sure its just the same game code given a new graphics pass every year. I never understood people who buy those sports games every year. Especially the EA ones.

IMHO, CDPR has eaten enough shit for their sin. They got their come uppence, and rightfully so. However, this kind of thing can happen to EA over and over and over until they close up shop, bulldoze their offices an plow over the grounds they stood on with salt and I won't care.

Killdoser: The Game

You play as a pissed off EA wage slave. It's a mixture of Besieged and American Truck Simulator. Build your own Killdoser, and take on EA's corporate offices in a world wide leaderboard.

WHY AREN'T WE FUNDING THIS!?!?!?!?

Pffft, maybe for the developers, they had the integrity to bail. Iwinski consciously decided to throw their work down the drain because he thought he could be the next EA.

Remember, "Electronic Arts" is named the way it is because it advertised itself as treating computer games as an artform in the beginning.

Well, I know that the days of cautionary tales are over. 99 percent of the time these days, a company will not "learn their lesson..." but I guess I was hoping that the brass at Seedy PR would be different.

Somebody has to keep it safe when they have to use the hacked version like Ubisoft did

No sympathy, I'm still mad they bought Codemasters.

It's only a matter of time before they follow everyone else who came before.
