FIFA 18 faced a huge backlash from fans due to its bugs and micro-transaction system in Ultimate Team mode which makes it pay-to-win resulting in a Black Friday boycott by fans in November 2017 and a petition being launched by fans with the #FixFifa.Players criticized EA of changing the game through patches which resulted in players not getting what they paid for and the need to spend a large amount of real currency in order to get a good team as well as the large amount of glitches and bugs in the game.
