Yeah ... "fun and FUT champs (or FIFA)" is not used much now.

The kid (and me to an extant now) browse the fifa subreddit and it's obvious that many are not happy. Unfortunately - as we all know - there are just too many people that constantly buy the game, spend the hundreds/thousands on FP and will continue to do so - forever more.

Call me cynical, but there will simply never be a scenario where EA don't meet their revenue numbers. They've got millions hooked and it will never change. Those that fall off/spend less are replaced by new 9/10 year olds with daddy's credit card.

Not sure if you have seen the EA SW BF 2 response about DLC cost of Darth Vader. Most downvoted reddit post - ever ... and by some margin ... 10+ times! I do think there are a bunch of idiots there - if you are that keen on a game, then spend the hours playing and earn the hero ... don't give in and buy him. But ... the reality is that he is available to purchase and I guess that grates many.

Regardless, it just shows that they've got the model wrong - now it may not be a bad thing (ofc it's not from a business perspective), but the method communication/trying to sell it ... man, there are just idiots running/working at that place.

Similarly, this one proves that as well - https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/7ch1f5/eas_community_manager_calls_concerned_battlefront/. Loved the top comment tho'! FYI - this is the deleted tweet - http://archive.is/DenaU.
