Yup, you read that right! [https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/03/after-server-error-fifa-pros-settle-match-with-rock-paper-scissors/] My question would be, if this is a legitimate professional match, why the hell isn't it being held locally and offline like fighting game tourneys?

For shame, EA (yet again). Chalk up another loss, right next to ongoing network infrastructure failings in general in an age that?s pushing being connected more than ever.
