FIFA 23 makes a huge mistake in the Hero pack that results in players losing hundreds of thousands of FIFA coins in a market crash.
EA recently made a huge mistake related to the Hero pack in the FIFA 23 in the in-game store as players report losing a ton of coins. FIFA 23 was released on September 30 and was built using HyperMotion 2 technology with a greater emphasis on realism and authenticity. One Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 was also available and fans who bought it got the game three days early along with 4600 FIFA points and other in-game items.
Heroes inside FIFA 23 are special retired player cards. Many of these cards have buffed statuses and upgrades and receive full chemistry points when played in a related position. Heroes are a tier below icons, as these cards represent the legends of the game, but still offer better stats than most regular gold cards in FIFA 23. Now, it looks like EA has made a mistake related to FUT Heroes that has resulted in users losing a huge amount of coins.
As reported by VGC, EA accidentally released a Hero pack in the FIFA 23 save for 25,000 coins or 500 FIFA points. Users were probably surprised at the price, as many Heroes fetch hundreds of thousands of coins on the transfer market, and some even cost more than a million. Additionally, it was a tradable pack, meaning fans who opened the pack could then sell the card on the transport market for a huge influx of currency. The Hero Pack was too good to be true as EA removed it shortly after the FIFA 23 store.
It was only available for about 25 minutes in the store, despite users having six days to purchase it. The FIFA 23 The market works on a supply-demand basis, so it was flooded with various Hero cards as soon as the pack was released. Fans continued to undercut each other in hopes of selling their card, causing the market for Heroes to collapse. So players who bought a Hero Card before the pack was released lost hundreds of thousands of coins on each item. The prices of some cards have recovered, but they probably won’t return to their previous values.
Players are generally compensated for EA’s mistakes, but the company has yet to comment on the incident. EA is probably still looking for the best way to deal with the issue, as any step it takes will likely have a huge impact on the FIFA 23 in-game purchase.
FIFA 23 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
