Yesterday, EA Sports announced that it will remove the national Russian team and Russian clubs FIFA 22. The announcement came when the Russian invasion of Ukraine entered its second week. As the news spread, the gaming community began to respond.

Here is the original statement:

In addition to the national team FIFA 22 contains three teams of the Russian Premier League – Lokomotiv Moscow, Spartak Moscow and PFC CSKA Moscow. All three will be removed.

The interesting thing about this statement is that it does not reveal the fate of individual Russian players in the game. Clubs and teams will be removed, but it is understood that players will remain.

The community’s reactions to the news have grown from supportive to those affected to fully cooked.

Some have questioned whether EA could do more to support Ukraine beyond what is ultimately a step towards ensuring continuous smooth PR.

Some did not want every Russian citizen to be tarred with the same brush.

Others expressed a desire for FUT cards of Ukrainian football manager Andriy Schevchenko. Schevchenko played for Dynamo Kyiv, AC Milan, Chelsea and the Ukrainian national team in the 90s and 2000s. He returned to Dynamo Kyiv in 2009 and retired in 2012 to embark on a career in politics.

Do not remove even more appealing EAs Lev YashinSoviet footballer generally considered one of the best goalkeepers of all time.

In addition to the memes and blabbering that always accompany such posts, there was also a lot of anger that EA was saying something at all. In addition to the usual outbursts of whataboutism and questions about what such a move would achieve, the wide atmosphere felt that EA’s motives were less than real.

There is no reason to distrust them they are not original. Expression of support in the game FIFA 22size, value and significance for EA Yippee meaningful. EA has previously shown that it is willing to pull content out of the game based serious real world events. However, the community is certainly skeptical about this announcement.

This morning, we approached EA Australia to confirm whether players like Yashin would stay in the game or if everyone would face the axes along with the clubs. We’ll update this part when we know more.
