if something can be exploited it's the dev's fault... Sure handout a few week ban but not a lifetime one, not the exploiters fault EA sport can't make a bugless game

Pretty much this, say our mate finds this in an online discussion, tries it and finds it works, then tells his mates there is a glitch. People would use it, it is as simple as that. Permanent bans for doing something a loophole in the game allows you to do is not your fault. In the eighties it would have made in readers tips in any gaming magazine.

I get what you guys are saying but they only say it is a glitch/exploit to avoid the mass panic of the word 'hack'. Basically their web app was hacked so people could download a file so when they purchased a pack it would be free. It was for the ultra expensive packs as well which I have seen them charge a ridiculous £15.99 for in the past, so it's not like I have any sympathy for them at that price. It is stealing though.

Not only that but they sell the players through the app for the FIFA virtual currency and then sell the account online on Ebay once they have a lot of said currency. So it's more like fraud as opposed to a cheat.

Well that's different. I'd agree that punishment is due but resetting their account with some witty graphic on their profile would be more funny.

It always happens, pretty pathetic. I'll build my team up from scratch again, loved doing it in FIFA 12 and wish I got on board with the first FIFA which had FUT, can't remember if it was 09 or 10. Got mine pre-ordered through Shopto, the ultimate edition.
