FIFA 15 News Roundup #23

On Wednesday, December 17th, Ultimate Team 15 went offline for a scheduled maintenance of three hours but soon enough those three hours were extended to many more making the FUT downtime to almost 12 hours. There have been no official statements on why the maintenance had to be extended or what the EA dev team fixed during that maintenance.  We contacted EA Sports regarding this and all we’ve got in return was that the changes made during maintenance were internal and they weren’t allowed to make them public yet. There have been reports however of a ban sweep on the PC platform where many FIFA 15 players had their accounts terminated for various reasons.

The Ultimate Team 15 PlayStation market is at it again, after the Falcao, Negredo and Remy cards at their previous clubs another strange card popped up on the market, an early version of TOTY Messi!! The card is 98 rated with the player’s position set as Central Mid which is pretty unusual for Messi. There is also a clip recorded by an user showing that the card exists and you can watch it down bellow:
