FIFA 13's Ultimate Team servers were taken down last night. Now back online, EA has indicated it was in the process of axing cheaters from the system.

A statement was released over on the EA forums:

"FIFA 13 Ultimate Team is back up and running. Earlier this week, a very small number of users attempted to gain an unfair advantage by manipulating coins.To ensure a fair economy for all our users we decided to take FUT offline in order to restore a level playing field.

We take issues like this very seriously. Permanent bans for FIFA 13 have been served to all users who attempted to gain an unfair advantage.

We would like to thank you, the community, for your patience during the downtime. We’ll continue to maintain the best experience for all fans of FIFA 13: Ultimate Team."


Such problems are common in Ultimate Team. EA continue to battle against a tide of cheaters that look to unfairly dominant the marketplace. Have you ever suffered at the hands of these pests? Let us know.

EA, have you considered that, maybe, your scripts aren't as foolproof as you thought? If these problems are "common" there just may be a discrepancy somewhere among the AIs, processors, and scripts. Just a thought.

It's the same with all games. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence and know-how can modify scripts. It's getting away with it that's not always the easy part.

I'm referring to them being incompetent, not that it would actually make a difference.
