The importance of accurate translations and descriptions in video games can’t be overstated, as a single error can lead to significant consequences. This was the case in EA Sports FC 24, where a pack exclusively available to players with the Spanish version of the game featured a misleading description.
The Misleading Pack Description
The pack, costing either 500,000 coins or 3,500 FC Points, was part of the ‘Deslumbrantes’ event (Supreme Deslumbrantes Pack). The description erroneously promised a Base Icon with a minimum average of 90, leading to disappointment when players received Icons with lower averages.
It was later clarified that the pack was supposed to offer a maximum average of 90, but not before numerous players had made purchases based on the incorrect information.
EA’s Response: A 90 Average Icon Compensation
EA has stepped up to rectify the situation by compensating affected players. If you were among those who purchased the pack and did not receive the promised Icon, EA is compensating with the correct 90 average Icon as initially advertised.
Receiving Your Compensation
Affected players should have already received this compensation, or it should be arriving shortly. If there’s a delay, EA advises patience and reaching out to game support with the necessary proof for assistance if needed.
What Players Can Expect
This compensation could include highly coveted cards like Gullit. If you were a player who took advantage of the pack and received the compensation, share your experience. Was it worth the initial investment for the pack and the subsequent 90 average Icon?
