With a new game comes new options and EA have decided to act upon one of those by removing all trade offers from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
As part of an increased layer of security surrounding the latest FIFA title from EA Sports, ‘Trade Offers’ will not be present in the latest game when it releases at the end of September. This is to clamp down on account phishers, bid bumping and generally makes FIFA 15 a nicer place to frequent.
Additionally, the maximum number of transfer targets allowed at any one time in FUT 15 will be set to 50 players.
Full statement direct from the EA forums is as follows:
We’ll be removing Trade Offers from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins. Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts.
This will also address “bid bumping”, where people would try and trick others into bidding far more than they wanted for a player item.
It was a tough decision, but this is the right step towards improving security, showing cheaters the red card, and keeping FUT safe for all FIFA fans.
The maximum number of Transfer Targets in FUT 15 will be set 50 player items after utilizing the EAS FC unlockable boosts. This means that you will be allowed to bid on up to 50 players at a time.
Origin Login Verification
Origin Login Verification is an extra layer of security that protects your FUT account from being accessed outside of your home console and PC. In order to ensure increased security for our fans, Origin Login Verification will be mandatory in the near future before you access the FUT 15 Web App. Find out how to set it up here: <http://help.ea.com/en/article/fifa-15-first-steps-login-verification/ >
