FIFA 13 Ultimate Team exploit causes fan backlash, economy upset

FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is experiencing exploit issues that sees players gaining access to top tier players for free and selling them on, potentially setting the game's economy off-balance. EA's forums have lit up with angry gamers demanding that EA takes action.

The exploit applies to the web browser version of FIFA 13 Ultimate Team, which has now gone offline to presumably give EA a chance to fix the issue, which gives people access to restricted card packs.

Eurogamer reports that the official EA forums have seen a barrage of complaints from angry gamers wanting the exploit hole to be plugged, and for normal service to resume.

The report adds that while offending players can be perma-banned, the exploited cards sold will still remain, creating a negative impact on the game's economy.

More as we get it. Thanks again Eurogamer.
