In FIFA 23, you could briefly purchase a Heroes Pack on October 8. This cost 25,000 coins and could only be purchased once per account. But after almost 15 minutes it was already deactivated again. The players who couldn’t buy it are now angry because it was the best package ever offered in FIFA.
What was in the pack? A guaranteed FUT hero. And each of these players is impressive:
- The worst card is Jorge Campos, a keeper with a rating of 87 and worth 20,000 coins – a relatively small loss compared to the purchase price.
- At the top, however, is David Ginola with a value of 1.75 million coins. In total, 7 players are worth more than 500,000 coins.
- The German legend Rudi Völler will also be present.
Anyone who bought the Heroes Pack could also offer the card on the FUT transfer market, as the card was miraculously redeemable. And since only Jorge Campos was one of the 25,000 coins you paid for the pack, it was an almost risk-free investment.
Players describe the peloton as the strongest of all time. Too strong, probably found EA too.
Heroes Pack may have been a mistake, but it really pisses players off
What happened after the package was released? Shortly after the Heroes Pack was released, it was deactivated again. According to a post on reddit, it was only online for just under 15 minutes. Anyone who could grab a suit during this time was very lucky.
What do the players say? They are really angry, because those who didn’t log in immediately got nothing. However, the lucky ones can either bring in a strong player cheaply or turn a few coins into significantly more. Some players also complain that their card would have lost a lot of value as a result of the campaign and indirectly even lost coins.
Players now demand justice:
- For example, Hazard1900 writes, “It would be disgusting if they didn’t give us all a hero now.”
- Ballaman200 describes the move as “EA’s biggest mistake since the launch of FUT”.
At the same time, this action also resonates with anger from other areas. Some players complain that bugs sometimes take weeks to fix, while a pack that could only be bought once and offered all players the same chance was removed after a few minutes, which made it really unfair.
What does EA say about this? So far there is no statement about the package. So it’s unclear if the other players will be compensated or if the original buyers will lose their hero. We at MeinMMO will keep you informed.
