    lol they didnt prepare the site very well considering its one of the most popular game modes in a sports game at the moment. they should have expected high traffic which means they should have had the right website settings in place. a very dissapointing 1/10 rating for ea i think.

    This is highly annoying. Given the popularity of FIFA and ultimate team they had to know that basically everyone who plays ultimate team regularly would be logging in today for this.

    this is ridiculous, i had so many issues with ea’s care free attitude in FUT11! this is so unfair to those who have been trying since 5 and others may have there players, this is a massive advantage to the ones who have got them, some claim to have got them. Some people may spend no money at all and have only just logged in for the freebies and have only purchased fifa 12, i however have had 10 11 and will have 12 and many of the past series i have purchased. i am loyal and spent torwards 500 quid in packs last yr or on fifa 11 UT, then i get no loyalty packs? come on EA this is unfair. Why promote something you cant go through with? i think this is all in order to milk us for more money trying to get these so called in form players etc when it finally releases. Jamie

    i wne ton last night at just past 12 to realise it was changed and that it had to be used at 5pm today, now been trying since around 5.30pm still no joy and the servers were clogged up but EA have decided to completely remove it from the server now. It is basically non existant, this is a terrible promotion, almost false advertising in order to promote the game financially. they are working like drug dealers, giving you a taste or tempting you then making you PAY! difference is at least a drug dealer will give you the first freebie. lol it is now 21.48pm still doesnt exist on the server, i just hope they do make up for this and these people who have been trying since 5 etc will get the packs they deserve, especially those loyal customers that spent a lot of money in FUT11. Not so much the people logging in for freebies and buying/selling with no cash involved all yr round posting fishing sites and stealing peoples players. They deserve to wait for nothing!

    nugget this is a complete add up and rough estimate of overall pack costs in the entire yr. I enjopy the game and thats why i purchased packs, i wanted to support the developers for making a game i enjoy. Just because youve taken offence to my comments because you are one of the phishing guys no need to get personal. You obviously are for the stealing and the freebies i guess nugget. I need a life? why do you say that? is it because i spend half the time you do buying and selling and stealing players to make a few coins etc as you do? i think youre the sad one, why buy and sell for several months when you can support the developer and cut the time in half? you spend longer messing around than me so you are ultimately the one who needs a life, funny how youre name is nugget isnt it.
