EA has challenged a Twitter post about the ‘true costs’ of a dream FUT team, says Mirror football they ‘challenge the starting point of these theories’.
Last week, FIFA player ScudzTV launched a Twitter thread, which later went viral, claiming to calculate the ‘true cost’ of acquiring a ‘dream 100 million coin’ FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, which included eleven special FUT Icon players.
In response, EA has exclusively revealed its position on the recent speculation Mirror football.
“We are aware that there has recently been speculation as to what it will take to have a great FIFA Ultimate Team in EA SPORTS FIFA,”

“While we respect the effort and creativity to map possible paths to greatness, we challenge the premises of these theories.
“There are many assumptions made in the calculations.
For example, you can not calculate exactly how many coins you will earn from trading, as it will depend on your skill as a trader.
“There are also other aspects of the game that help build your club, such as SBC, Objectives and Draft, which also need to be accounted for.
“Equally important is that FIFA is a game of skill. The player’s skill is the biggest factor in the outcome of matches or challenges in FIFA – a strong player can succeed whether their team is bronze, silver, gold or a mixture of all three.
“You do not need the highest ranked players in the game to win.
“In the real world, no football club has the world’s highest ranked players in each of the 11 positions.
“Although it is possible to field” the 11 best “in FUT if it is skilled enough with significant time investments, it is certainly not intended or expected that the players field a squad like this.
“To say a different respect for the many players who spend time learning and loving the game; master a skill move, set pieces, timed finish, pitch / pass courses; work with their craft; build / tear down / rebuild their team so many leaders, working on tactics to help them win.
“It’s the magic and fun of the game for these players.
“Investment is a choice players can make, just like in the real world. Some teams build through investment, and it is a choice for owners, front offices and executives in real sports, just as it is a choice in EA SPORTS FIFA.
“If the premise here is that the players want the best players in the world on their team so that they can improve, compete online and play against the best, they can do so in FIFA without extra investment – you can play like Liverpool or Man City or PSG whenever you want.
“There is no way to win the league. There is no way to the Champions League. There is no way to the World Cup. And there is no way to succeed in EA SPORTS FIFA.
“It’s as it should be.”
The first post from @ScudzTV, posted on March 16, was made after EA issued a statement directly to Mirror Football about professional FIFA players and how much they invest in the game.
“FIFA Ultimate Team is a versatile game of skill,” EA told Mirror Football.
It is important to note that you can get all the items in the game without spending money, with purchases being completely optional.
“Every professional, competitive player must demonstrate the skills of the meta-game to be considered skilled enough to compete at an elite level, which includes trade, financial monitoring, troop rotation and completing challenges.”
Following this statement, FIFA player @ScudzTV decided to break the numbers himself and calculate the ‘true cost’ of how much time or money it would take for him to achieve his ‘dream’ FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.
In the first tweet, @ScudzTV posted a picture of what would be his ‘Dream’ team on the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.
The team contained 11 FUT icons, including Player Moments Ronaldo, Player Moments Pele, Player Moments Ronaldinho and many more, you can check out the team in the image below.
He then tried to “find out” how long, or how much money it could take, for him to acquire this team on the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.
“Let’s talk @EASPORTSFIFA,” @ScudzTV said.
“Here is my dream team, only 100 million coin layers. So this is” achievable “and here are my options according to you.
“1 – Play games … 100 million coins with games.
“Assuming there are on average 1500 coins in the game (which make up weekly rewards), there are only 66,666 games.
“On average 20 minutes into the game, there are only 22,000 hours of play or 916 days of play 24/7.
“2 -” monitor the market “… 100 million coins.
“Assuming there are on average 10,000 coins in profit per trade, I have to make only 10,000 trades.
“Assuming I trade 10k every 10 minutes, I have to trade for 1650 hours or 69 days of trading 24/7
“Spends £ £ £ … 100 million coins from FIFA points.
“Assuming an average of 100,000 coins earn per 12,000 FIFA points.
“I have to buy 1,000 x 12,000 FP at a price of £ 79.99 per 12,000, and I have to spend a total of £ 79,990 on FIFA points.
