(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – As a way to eliminate coin trading, EA has removed all Trade Offers from FIFA 15’s Ultimate Team mode.
Although Trade Offers are mostly used by players to trade items with friends directly, some use the feature as a way to sell and move coins, which is prohibited by EA.
“Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins. Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts,” says EA via blog post. “This will also address “bid bumping”, where people would try and trick others into bidding far more than they wanted for a player item.”
EA adds that the decision was the “right step towards improving security, showing cheaters the red card, and keeping FUT safe of all FIFA fans.”
