EA recently removed the coins of many FIFA 17 players, causing much unrest among fans. The company hasn’t provided clear explanations as to why it took this decision, only adding to gamers’ general sense of unease.

The players who have had their coins removed contest EA’s actions, claiming that they didn’t do anything wrong. Having your treasury emptied without a clear explanation is every FIFA 17 player’s nightmare.

Major FIFA 17 coin reset wave hits players

Right there’s a lot of threads going up at the moment , about peoples coins getting Reset now […] But a lot of people have said they have traded coins , using SBC on silvers bronzes Etc Etc.

Now if there’s no sufficient evidence that someone bought coins but buying a bronze silver player, for 10k is not a sufficient evidence for a coins reset IMO and if you guys are throwing resets around like water and banning people that have actually invested into the game, FIFA Points, Time and Dedication.

As a Community of FIFA Players we should be , made aware of bans and resets like other developers do respect your fans and you get respect back, If you break the rules than fine people/players deserve to be punished but if people want to invest time to make coins instead of invest money to make coins then that should be allowed.

The biggest problem is the lack of transparency from EA. There’s a raft of coin wipes coming through, but gamers don’t really know why this is happening. Many FIFA 17 players believe there’s something fishy going on here, especially because highly regarded members of the community have been hit. As a result, this makes everybody else nervous.

EA is investigating FIFA 17 coin reset issue

EA has yet to issue any clear comments on the matter. After FIFA 17 players spammed Rob, one of EA’s community managers, he offered the following generic empty answer:

Team’s aware of the recent wave of disputes & is investigating

This is not the only problem surrounding FIFA coins lately. As a quick reminder, hackers recently embezzled $15 million in form of FIFA coins.

We’ll keep on eye on this matter and update this article as soon as new information is available.
