FIFA 20 Players Take A Stand Against EA By Protesting Outside Of Publisher's Headquarters

FIFA 20 Players Take A Stand Against EA By Protesting Outside Of Publisher's Headquarters

FIFA 20 players organised a protest outside of the EA headquarters in Bucharest to send a statement to the publisher over issues in the latest title.

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.

And fans are furious with how the odds are balanced in packs, effectively making it more difficult for players to receive rare Ultimate Team cards.

The Reddit post has amassed over 3,500 upvotes at the time of this writing, but the protest in Romania has been met with a mixed reception from fans.

User RPRHUNT supported the cause and wrote: "I wish I could join them, its [sic] so frustrating having no one to complain to besides the community."
