The new Price Range feature aims to set the highest and lowest Coin prices that each item can be sold on the Transfer Market, including players, in-forms, consumables, and club items.
The changes are supposed to Help FUT gamers understand the value of the players in their club, make high-rated players more attainable for all FUT gamers and ensure a level playing field and further restrict illegitimate coin transfers on the Transfer Market.
EA has confirmed that the Transfer Market is back online for PC, Xbox and PlayStation with Price Ranges enabled, following an extensive maintenance period earlier today.
“Although the new FUT item Price Ranges will differ from current prices, their relative value to other player items on the Transfer Market will remain consistent in order to maintain a level playing field for everyone,” a post from EAsports reads.
“We believe the long-term benefits of this new change will make FUT more fun and fair for everyone.”
But the new changes have sparked a backlash on Twitter, with one of the top trending terms featuring the hashtag ‘#RIPFUT’.
One fan wrote: “EA do you not realise what you have just done, rest in peace ultimate team, PES here we come!”
While another wrote: “This update is ridiculous! You’ve ruined your own game.”
