No more easy FIFA coins unless you’re going to work for them!
What EA Sports was calling an “unintended gameplay mechanic” that FIFA 18 players were taking advantage of to farm FIFA Coins has been resolved by a new patch to the game. FIFA 18 gamers were effectively using lower stat players to bait the hardest team in the game into fouls, getting them sent off and earning an easy victory, and tons of FIFA Coins.
The glitch first hit mainstream notice when a top PS4 player was accused of using it to gain an unfair advantage. But now EA Sports has dropped a patch that should resolve the glitch.
Essentially the patch keeps the computer player from receiving too many yellow card fouls unless its an attacker and they really deserve it, like when trying to push or pull an opponent, or a one-on-one with the keeper. Human controlled players are not impacted by this, but the change should quash the tactic of foul baiting the AI for an easy win.
Removed the chance for the CPU AI controlled player to receive a second yellow card when trying to push or pull an opponent, with the exception of an attacker who is through on goal and 1 on 1 with the keeper.
To better explain this change we wanted to provide some additional context around how the CPU team plays the game.
