EA Sports has announced that FIFA 15’s Ultimate Team will no longer have trade offers.
The announcement was made by Robb, a community manager for FIFA on the EA forums.
On the forum post, Robb states that the main reason behind this decision was to combat cheaters who were using the trade offer option as a way to buy coins from coin sellers.
“We’ll be removing Trade Offers from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins. Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts.”
This is not surprising! In fact, it was the smartest thing EA could have done! After the announcement of their new policy for cheaters, it was clear that this had to be removed!
