My response to EA on UF and NYE

★★★★ Novice

Well after yesterday's update on EAHelp I finally realized that you have zero intention of fixing the problem I have faced, and countless others.


In the update we learned that you are creating an exchange process for all the collected items for UF and NYE. Once you have exchanged the collection items, there is no need to give players the players they earned.


And lets face it. When EA is taking the hit, problems are solved lickety-split. When players like me take the hit, there us no urgency. There is plenty of placating on your part, and no action.


So I get it, that 95 Woodson I earned isn't going to happen. I can look forward to you compensating me by exchanging all my balloons for who knows what.

Yeah, it’s never going to happen, I mean how difficult is it to give a pack to a player, support give out madden packs all the time just to shut us up. I’ve had enough, barely played the game since being screwed over so my love of this game is fast fading.

And for all my efforts, my 95 Woodson has been exchanged, see photos. And there goes any future involvement with special events.

Bruh I legit genuinely feel bad for you man. Smh. But I'm not surprised though because I've been in the exact same situation where I had more than enough proof and was still denied what I had earned and was due. And on more than one occasion. Smh. It's the people and culture at that company that makes it bad.

As you can see in this post:


They are blaming the players....

We exchanged the wrong card, we did something wrong.... so too bad for you... that's the stand EA has taken in this matter.


<sarcasm> So shame on you for playing the game wrong and complaining about it </sarcasm>
