FIFA 23 now limits the number of World Cup Swap Tokens players can earn.
EA Sports has introduced a series of FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) packs and cards to celebrate the World Cup in FIFA 23.
Players can earn up to 50 World Cup Swap Tokens by completing World Cup-related in-game challenges.
Each challenge you complete gives you a swap token, and you need a certain number of tokens to exchange them for a card.
The challenges you complete can be done with the Golden Goal option enabled.
This means challenges can be completed quickly as the first goal scored will end the game.
Challenges can be repeated any number of times, so there’s not really a downside to this risky strategy.
However, as of November 28, there is a limit on the number of matches that can be attempted per hour.
This limitation includes failed challenge attempts.
Now players can only attempt 10 matches per hour, making the Golden Goal trick less useful.
Games last around 12 minutes when playing the game full-time, which means players can only complete 5 games per hour if playing continuously.
With the golden goal trick, however, matches usually last less than a minute.
Fans were upset with the change because the sooner they can earn swap tokens, the sooner they can use the new FUT cards in-game.
Some contain some very highly rated cards including some FUT icons.
The restriction was introduced due to an issue with accounts being banned for playing games too quickly.
This is because the accounts could be bots used to farm items to trade on the in-game transfer market.
Some items can fetch exceptionally high prices, making it quite lucrative for players to do so.
Despite player concerns, EA Sports appears to have no intention of reversing the decision.
