FIFA 13 | Ultimate Team taken offline

EA has taken the FIFA Ultimate Team mode offline so it can deal with “recent trade pile and auction house complications”.

This decision effects Ultimate Team online gameplay, trading and store purchasing (disabled), and the web mobile applications have also been disabled.

This comes after players have reported trade cards disappearing, as well as sold cards getting stuck in their trade pile, and the inability to add cards bought to their team.

EA have said: “FUT13 is temporarily down until further notice while we address the trade pile issue. This is to ensure that more users do not become affected and an optimal experience can be sustained in the future.

“We’ll keep you updated as soon as we have additional information throughout the coming days. Other FIFA 13 online game modes will not be affected.

“Thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience.”
