FIFA 15: Why is Ultimate Team down?

EA have confirmed they are performing scheduled maintenance for FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) and EA SPORTS Football Club (EASFC) on March 19, 2015 beginning at 19:00 PM UK.

FIFA 15 will have a total downtime of approximately 3 hours and won’t be available again until after 10pm tonight.

The maintenance will include the following improvements, according to EA:

  • Help reduce the number of disconnects at the end of FUT matches.
  • Improve connection problems that have been reported on Xbox One and Xbox 360
  • Removal of FUT club names from items on the Transfer Market

FIFA Ultimate Team, the Web App, and Mobile companion app, and EA SPORTS Football Club are all set to be offline, while online service for all other game modes will be unaffected.

The recent Price Range feature changes have caused widespread controversy among fans, which aimed to set the highest and lowest FIFA Coins prices that each item can be sold on the Transfer Market, including players, in-forms, consumables, and club items.

The changes are supposed to Help FUT gamers understand the value of the players in their club, make high-rated players more attainable for all FUT gamers and ensure a level playing field and further restrict illegitimate fifa coins transfers on the Transfer Market.
