It’s fair to say FIFA 20 has upset plenty of gamers since its release.
The latest edition of the EA Sports franchise has disappointed the typical gamer, while there have been a comedy of errors in professional tournaments.
And now FIFA has been dealt another blow by popular streamer Nick ‘RunTheFUTMarket’ Bartels.
Nick has 300,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel thanks to his FIFA Ultimate Team videos.
However, it seems he’s now had enough of FIFA 20.
On a recent stream, he revealed to his loyal viewers that he’s now “taking action”.
“I feel like a lot of us have reached our breaking point now, taking action upon it and doing some different things to make it better. I don’t know what EA is going to do, to be honest,” he said.
“I don’t know what they can do at this point. I’m trying to think right now what would bring me back to FIFA – like full-time. If I stream six hours of FIFA today, it will be the biggest f**king grind ever.
“I would be sitting here not happy, it’s just how it works. I think the only thing to take me back to loving FIFA is going to be the Team of the Season aspect.”
So, what would he start streaming?
Pro Evolution Soccer? Football Manager?
How about Farming Simulator 2019?
So he proceeds to “start from scratch” to build his new farm.
The description of the task is: “Your starting capital is very limited and you don’t own any land or equipment yet. The economy is tough, prices are low: gameplay elements are on the most realistic setting.”
He proceeds to create his own farmer and discovers what Farming Simulator is all about.
It’s another bitter blow to EA Sports and a bit humiliation that Nick would prefer to become a farmer than stream FIFA to his 300,000 subscribers.
