Confirmed: FIFA 21 has no handicap; withdraw a claim after providing technical data

They withdraw a lawsuit against EA Sports after having provided technical data and access to the engineers of their sports franchises. FIFA 21 has no handicap.

FIFA 21 nor any installment of EA Sports sports franchises has handicaps or any script that adjusts and manipulates the competition in Ultimate Team . This has been ensured by the resolution of a lawsuit against the company, in which Electronic Arts has provided technical data and access to engineers to clarify what happened.


“Ensuring fair play is vital to all of us at EA, and we have tried to be as clear as possible in applying this commitment to both ourselves and the players. We have said publicly before that we do not use any scripts or Dynamic Difficulty Adjustments (DDA in English) or anything similar that can automatically adjust the difficulty of the gameplay in the Ultimate Team games of FIFA, Madden and NHL ”, explains the company in a statement.

Despite the fact that Electronic Arts owns a patent that uses DDA technology, they stress that "it was never used" in their sports sagas and that "it will never be used . " "We will never use DDA technology to give players an advantage or disadvantage in the online multiplayer modes of any of our games and we absolutely do not have it in FIFA, Madden and NHL."


The end of the story?

Part of the FIFA community has always stated that an algorithm was hidden in Ultimate Team that affected the behavior of the teams, which is called handicap or momentum . EA Sports always denied it with statements such as the view in 2017. The creative director at that time, Matt Prior, assured that "there is nothing of that" in the saga. “This is something that I am asked frequently. Is there something regarding the default scripts and elements in encounters? I assure you, no, there is none of that. It's just soccer . The things that happen in football ”.


Now, 4 years later, justice and the evidence have confirmed that, indeed, they are not in any of their jobs .
