Pro FIFA Players Forced To Play 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' Due To EA Sports Server Issues

Pro FIFA 20 players had to decide a tournament qualifier by playing 'Rock, paper, scissors' against one another - because of the quality of EA's servers.

Shaun Galea took to Twitter and explained that he and his opponent couldn't find each other to play in the FIFA Ultimate Team Champions Cup Weekend League qualifiers on Saturday.

As a result, qualification was decided over a few rounds of 'Rock, paper, scissors' which Galea lost.


Opponent Hasan Eker tweeted his delight at prevailing in the rather unorthodox contest.

EA's servers are notorious for their issues and they released a statement on Saturday reading:

"We are actively investigating the connectivity issues players are currently experiencing. Match creation has been temporarily disabled to prevent disconnects. We'll update this thread with more info when we can."

FIFA 20 has been blighted by issues since launching in September and fans have been vocal.

#FixCareerMode trended on launch due to the poor quality of the single player mode which included numerous spelling mistakes and game breaking bugs.

A vocal group of fans even protested outside EA's headquarters in Bucharest late last year to campaign against the game.

A Reddit user shared the story online as a small number of players took issue with pack luck in the popular Ultimate Team mode, button delay and scripting.

What do you think of FIFA 20?
