FIFA 16 News Roundup #41

After the chemistry glitch discovery in FIFA 16 last week,  EA Sports posted the following message a few days ago on the official FIFA forums regarding the glitch:

Our development teams have continued to investigate the reports of potential chemistry and fitness inconsistencies within FIFA Ultimate Team in FIFA 16, and we want to provide you with an update.

Our work has shown that there appear to be some differences in how fitness and chemistry apply to some FUT items. The differences appear to be the same for all FUT fans, but only applying to some FUT items, so we’re making some changes to ensure the attributes are being applied consistently across all items in the game.

To do that, we’re working on a title update for FIFA 16 on PC, Xbox and PlayStation platforms, and will be deploying it as soon as possible. We’ll continue to keep you updated on timing.

We appreciate the help from the FUT community and ongoing dialogue across channels like YouTube, the forums, and r/FIFA. We hear you and your interest in better understanding how FUT works, and as we move towards the launch of FIFA 17, we will be sharing more about the deeper mechanics of Ultimate Team.

We’ll be in touch again when we know the target date for the upcoming FIFA 16 update. Thank you.

The good thing is that EA Sports acknowledges the chemistry glitch and that a title update will be released very soon to address it.

The bad thing is that they treat this glitch as a very small issue when actually it is very serious since they have basically sold us a broken game with a faulty chemistry system for the last 4 years.

Do you think EA Sports will pay for their mistakes or will they move on as nothing happened?
