FIFA 18: This Ultimate Team ‘exploit’ will give you thousands of free coins

Genius or cheating? We're not sure

A FIFA 18 Ultimate Team ‘exploit’ risks bringing a new mode into disrepute.

This year, EA Sports released FUT Squad Battles, which sees you play AI controlled teams for FIFA Coins.

At the end of the week, your reward will depend on where you finish – which, if you win a load of games, will be considerable.

If you play on the hardest setting, Ultimate, you’ll get even bigger prizes.

So far, so good.

But as Eurogamer reports, there’s an ‘exploit’ that essentially allows gamers to trick the computer into giving you free money.

Gamers noticed that if you have a few bronze players in your team – and shield the ball with them – the AI will commit a foul when trying to dispossess them.

In theory, all you need to do is keep doing this to get the players sent off – making it far easier to win the game.

It’s not known why this works, however – in Ultimate difficulty – the AI is hyper aggressive and more likely to lunge in.

The ‘exploit’ has spread far and wide across the community – with YouTube tutorials and demonstrations readily available.

Fans are unsure if EA will ban the trick – but it certainly seems to be giving some players a huge advantage.

On the plus side, with prices for FIFA Coins at a premium, it’s a genius way of gaming the system – which is, for now – within EA rules.
