[Updated] FIFA 22 players not getting '3x FUTTIES 85+ packs' on PC & PlayStation, issue acknowledged
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on July 18, 2022) follows:
Every year, the video game industry welcomes a new installation in the EA FIFA franchise. FIFA 22 is the latest version of the football simulators saga from Electronics Arts.
For several years now, each EA FIFA game has been treated as a ‘game as a service’. This can be seen mainly in FUT (FIFA Ultimate Team) mode.
Being ‘games as a service’, the latest EA FIFA versions receive new events and challenges every so often. Among the events, some stand out, like the ‘FUTTIES’ promo.
FIFA FUTTIES is an event or promo that allows players to obtain high value and rarity items. The FIFA 22 FUTTIES event has been available for a few days now.
However, many FIFA 22 players on PC and PlayStation are facing an issue where they are not receiving the 3x 85+ packs that they should receive for having accessed the game during the start of the FUTTIES event.
FIFA 22 ‘3x FUTTIES 85+ packs’ missing for many PC and PlayStation players
To encourage FIFA 22 players to participate in the FUTTIES event, EA promised that all players who logged in at the start of the event would receive 3x packs with 85+ overall players.
But according to multiple reports, many FIFA 22 players on PC and PlayStation are not receiving the FUTTIES packs.
im kinda new to FUT and when i opened the game it said theres a free FUTTIES 85+ player pack waiting for me in the store under my packs but there wasnt, did anyone else have this problem?
Where is my free packs?
Can someone please explain to me why i haven’t gotten my 3 85+ packs. i need them desperately as i have no fodder and i could get some good cards
It’s worth pointing out that the issue seems to be happening randomly on some accounts. There are FIFA 22 players who already got their 3x FUTTIES 85+ packs.
Anyone else who still haven’t received their 85+ packs?
My friend got them last night but I still haven’t received mine
Also, some players suggest that there might be no compensation, as the 3x FUTTIES 85+ packs are a ‘gift’ from EA.
I haven’t got them either,and don’t be expecting compensation because EA have said no money was spent on the packs so people won’t be compensated, although people do spend money on to play the game, absolute joke of a company
Issue officially acknowledged
The EA Sports team is already aware of the issue and is investigating, but there is no ETA for a fix yet.
We are investigating reports that some players have not yet received their 85+ Single Player Pack (x3) and will provide an update in this thread when one is available.
Meanwhile, the EA support team seems to be treating each case reported on social networks like Twitter individually. So, if you are one of the affected players, you can try contacting the EA support team.
We will update this story once new relevant events arise on the matter.
