EA confirms wave of FIFA 22 bans after Division Rivals rewards exploit

EA SPORTS confirmed that FIFA 22 players who took advantage of the recent Division Rivals bonus crash in Ultimate Team will be subject to mass bans.

On February 10, FIFA 22 players discovered a game-breaking Ultimate Team issue that allowed them to redeem Division Rivals rewards on the Web App an infinite number of times simply by refreshing and re-login.

Basically, the packages will disappear and reappear over and over again but can be recovered every time. They also never contain the same cards – meaning the player can absolutely kill.

Some exploits glitch a few times, while others repeat the process for hours. So, after addressing the issue, EA SPORTS decided to punish players relative to the extent to which they took advantage of it.

Players who “constantly” exploit it will only receive a temporary ban. However, those who have “seriously” exploited it will no longer be able to access the FIFA Ultimate Team marketplace – which is as good as a permanent ban.

“We identified active accounts that were regularly mining Rival Rewards earlier this week and suspended them from FIFA 22 online for seven days,” they said.

“Additionally, we identified active accounts that severely mined Divisional Rival Rewards earlier this week. These accounts have received the aforementioned suspension and will also not be able to access the Transfer Market in FIFA 22.”

The exact number is not known. However, thousands of players could have taken advantage of the crash to varying degrees, given the sheer amount of money they could have earned.

This is not the first time EA SPORTS has banned players from mining. In October 2021, they ban more than 30,000 players for using a glitch that allows them to quit the game without being counted as losing. EA confirms wave of FIFA 22 bans after Division Rivals rewards exploit
