players are calling on those in the Ultimate Team community to join its "#PackStrike" and boycott Madden Points transactions until changes are made to the mode.
According to Madden influencer Zirksee, the main gripes with the game are its current pack odds and reward structure.
"Myself and other creators in the community have decided to go on a pack strike," Zirksee tweeted on Sept. 20. "With the massive issues going on in Madden 23 we need changes. DON’T BUY POINTS!"
In addition to mentioning other changes that came to MUT in Madden 23 that haven't been well-received (e.g. the removal of Weekend League, worsened free rewards), content creator Fendler explained how there isn't a "value floor" for those who do decide to spend money to test their luck in the mode's "slot machine" pack odds.
"You need to know going into spending money on packs that there's an inherent risk that there's going to be no return on your investment whatsoever," Fendler . "Indeed, even using the word investment is a little bit strong, you're throwing money away. It's a slot machine.
