Electronic Arts seem to be in the center of attraction all the time. Their problems don’t seem to end and only keep on piling up. One more controversy happen when the company opened up registrations for the FIFA 20 Global Series competition today. Everything was going good until those who were registering noticed something weird which was the sign-up page displayed personal details of players who had already done so.

They saw usernames, email addresses, and dates of birth, among other information. Many of the angry participates took it to Twitter and pointed out the mistake the company made. This not only affected high profile players, professionals and those who signed up. After this EA took action, what they did was taking down the page in order to investigate and said it would provide updates as soon as possible. After all that EA Tweeted about this.

EA Address This Through Their Twitter Account

In that, they described the incident that occurred during EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series and said that they took down the site by 1:30 pm UK Time. They were able to figure out what the problem was and they will be implementing a fix so that the information is protected. Moreover, they assured that players won’t have the same issue going forward. Also, in that tweet, they said approximately 1.6k people were affected by this and they will be taking steps to contact those competitors with more details and protect their EA accounts.

They also said, “Player privacy and security are of the utmost importance to us, and we deeply apologize that our players encountered this issue today.” The registration for the will be reopening in the upcoming days and they will notify the community through @EASPORTSFIFA and @EAFIFA esports Twitter handles when it’s live. All of this is settled and I am happy that nothing bad occurred because of EA’s Mistake and hope EA will be more careful next time.
