Why EA temporarily banned thousands of FIFA 22 players

Players discovered the “no loss glitch” in last week’s FUT Champions. All they had to was hit the Xbox or PlayStation button on their controller during an active match to back to the console’s home screen and wait for the timeout. FIFA 22 didn’t give players a loss for doing this, which allowed them to quit out of matches they would have usually lost. The news of this exploit spread among thousands of players who used it to get a perfect 20-0 win record in FUT Champions. The impact of this glitch was so immense that the Ultimate Team transfer market crashed as card values kept going lower.

While notifying players about the seven-day suspension, EA pointed at its Positive Play Charter that specifically states don’t use “exploits, cheats, undocumented features, design errors, bugs or problems to get a leg up on others.” The “no loss” glitch is certainly part of what EA considers prohibited to promote fair play in FIFA 22. That being said, banned players will still be able to keep the rewards they earned by exploiting the glitch.
