There are many ways to practice toxicity in online games, and taking into account that the FIFA community is one of the most toxic on the planet, it is important to put a brake on the actions of some players. Starting, for example, with the celebrations available right after scoring a goal.
That said, it seems that EA is trying to end all toxic gestures in its popular football simulator … So the “Shush”, “A-OK” and “Calma” (the latter from CR7) celebrations are going to be removed the next game.
All measures to avoid the ‘rage’ of the players, who are easily irritated just by losing, and completely lose their temper when the player on the other side still puts a ‘calm’ on top.
FIFA 21 condemns Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration! What has happened?
Therefore, the aim of EA is to end toxic gestures in the game, trying to improve the experience of the players in general. However, there are some gestures that will be withdrawn by EA, such as the case of “OK”, only for the studio to be active in the fight for equality of justice in the USA.
However, it seems that one of the players affected by this EA decision for FIFA 21 is none other than our Portuguese ace Cristiano Ronaldo. Do you know why? The fact that the player has just scored a goal and asked for calm can be seen as a provocation to the opponents … So, although some FIFA fans find this decision completely meaningless, the celebration will really be removed from the game.
In addition, it was also announced that the animation of the players entering the field was eliminated from the game and it will not be possible to burn time within the game itself. Since the cutscenes were almost all removed.”
In short, we can expect a FIFA 21 that is less toxic and more friendly to healthy competitiveness… But do players support this strategy?
