FIFA 23 introduces a new anti-cheat system – and fans are pissed

FIFA 23 players on PC will experience a completely different experience compared to FIFA 22 as EA introduces a new anti-cheat system.

The system called EA AntiCheat (EAAC) is software that is automatically downloaded with the game.

It only runs when FIFA 23 is running and it will be uninstalled once you uninstall the game.

EAAC blocks anyone trying to use additional software to edit their games and give them an advantage.

Those who use software to edit their matches usually do so to give themselves extra FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) Coins.

FUT Coins are a type of premium currency that you can use to open FUT packs and boost your online team.

However, it may be unfair to give yourself extra coins to other players who haven’t hacked their game or bought extra coins with real money.

It may seem that this is a win for PC players as overpowered FUT teams bolstered by ill-gotten coins have previously caused problems in online play.

However, it seems that the majority of users are upset about the change.

With growing concerns about online privacy and companies installing software on our computers, some believe this is a different type of Trojan horse.

one Twitter User wrote: “It seems that EA has decided to include spyware in their new FIFA 23 title that could potentially have access to anything on your computer.

“Even while staying honest, EA creates a great attack vector for others to exploit. Great job EA!”

EA addressed these concerns in its Deep Dive Blog via EAAC.

It reads: “EAAC does not collect information about your browsing history, applications not associated with EA games, or anything not directly related to anti-cheat protection.

“Our Game Security & Anti-Cheat team consists of some of the best security engineers in the world,

“And we’re passionate about ensuring our software doesn’t create security vulnerabilities.”

The other concern comes from FIFA’s passionate modding community, which uses third-party software to add quality-of-life changes to the game.

This may include better graphics and animations, and fixing bugs in the software.

in one discord Post, a fan argues that this new system shouldn’t be forced on players in offline career mode.

You write: “The whole thing [Career] Fashion is held together at the seams with what appears to be tape.

“The painful experience of Career Mode is why many content creators have gone to PC. It was about fixing the game you didn’t fix.

Aware of the balancing issues players were facing in Career Mode, EA has made a number of changes in the upcoming game.

Among other major improvements to the mode is a new personality point system designed to help players better balance their characters.

All will be revealed when FIFA 23 releases on September 30th.
