EA Sports FC 24 fans are up in arms following a recent error that saw players receive some of the best players in the game, causing quite the stir before it was swiftly corrected.

As part of EA Sports FC 24’s Weekend League, players vie for special versions of select players. This time around, the focus is on the Ligue 1 Team of the Season, featuring the coveted Kylian Mbappe, hailed as one of the top players in the game.

Early on Friday, players who participated in the Weekend League noticed that the rewards on offer were superior to what they typically receive. It was quickly observed that top-tier players like Mbappe and Dembele were cropping up more frequently than usual.

This unanticipated turn of events soon caught the attention of streamers, who in turn alerted many players to rush through their remaining matches in pursuit of the upgraded rewards. In response to the escalating situation, the EA Sports FC Direct Communications X account addressed the issue:

Following this statement, community members expressed their thoughts, with one highly rated comment pointing out:

“There may have been a probability issue, but there is no evidence of ‘unintended rewards’ being given out. Mbappe and Dembele are part of Ligue 1 TOTS, so they fit the reward description. EA lowered their chance because it will force players to open packs with real currency.”

Reactions on social media mirrored the discontent, as evidenced by the top posts on the EA Sports FC 24 Reddit over the weekend. One post exclaimed:


Another frustrated player shared:

“This company simply can't do things right, with issues week after week just piling up with no repurcussions. The servers are shit, with inconsistent gameplay across different game modes, and lag compensation to players with bad internet, when it should actually be the other way round.”
