There’s a new FIFA 17 Coin Farming Glitch that’s being exploited and it’s outraged a lot of people, especially after what happened in FIFA 15! If you felt that players in high demand were over inflated, you were probably right! Just take a look at the top 100 match earnings for this week on PC, Xbox, PS and you’ll see exactly what we mean. In this article we’ll update everything we know about this new FIFA 17 Coin Farming Glitch…
FIFA 17 Coin Farming Glitch being exploited!
While the actual FUT coin glitch process remains unknown, it’s evidently being exploited by a small core of players. We’re assuming it’s a few people in the know, that are creating these accounts to exploit the glitch. The leaderboards are filled with fake accounts that are making an abnormal number of coins. These accounts all look like automated gamertags (two words, followed by a number or random numbers). Microsoft give you a random gamertag if you do not create your own. PSN IDs contain a mixture of random letters and numbers which further suggests they are fake. This appeared to be exploited during FIFA 15 Ultimate Team too.
Checking the Top 100 Weekly Leaderboards in FUT
Firstly go to the leaderboards within FUT on PC, Xbox or Playstation. You can do this by scrolling across to ‘My Club’ and then ‘Leaderboards’. Once you’ve done this, change the leaderboards to Category: Match Earnings, Compare: Top 100 and Time: Weekly.
PS4 Top 100 Weekly Leaderboards in FUT
What you will notice on PS4 is that users either all have the same EST. date (Jan 2017), Similar records: 494-196-147 and similar Trophies: 57. The top 100 players alone have made close to 100 million coins from matches within the last week.
Xbox One Top 100 Weekly Leaderboards in FUT
What you will notice on Xbox One is that they all have the same EST. date (Dec 2016), their records differ, along with trophies, but they all have 0 wins! There are players earning 670,000 coins in the last week, with 0 wins! We repeat, the top 100 players have made in excess 60,000,000 coins in the last week, with zero wins?! Adds up!
With all the above said, these players cannot hide and we’re hopeful EA will fix this issue and ban all offending accounts very shortly.
Squad Building Challenges to counteract the FUT Coin Farming Glitch
As FUT Economist has said;
If this coin glitch is true, EA are going to have to do all kinds of crazy SBCs to battle the inflation. Could be good for traders.
If you are on the ball, you’ll be able to make a lot of FIFA 17 Coins based on the requirements. Prices for the players that feature in the requirements rise in price very quickly!
We’ll be covering the market every week in our exclusive market update every Wednesday via email (Thursday for our website). If you want to make guaranteed coins every week, you NEED these tips before other players.
It remains to be seen whether EA SPORTS FIFA are aware of this glitch and whether anything is being done to remove these cheating accounts / players from FIFA 17 Ultimate Team. Let us know your thoughts on this new coin farming glitch in the comments below, what action should EA take?
