For many people, the competitive side of FIFA 20 has started to die down, with many now enjoying the game on a social level, rather than stressing over FUT Champs!
But that competitive edge will be back soon enough, with FIFA 21 just around the corner and, with this new feature added, rage quits could be sent to a whole new level!
EA to combat “toxic” behaviour
As most FIFA fans will know, when it comes to those important games, there is a somewhat toxic atmosphere within the EA title.
This toxic atmosphere was raised to EA by the FIFA community, and lead gameplay producer Sam Riveria has confirmed that EA is taking a stance:
In an interview with EuroGamer, Rivera stated:
“We were told by the community that there are toxic behaviours in the game and we wanted to make sure we removed them.”
“So we removed some of the celebrations that people thought were not the best idea to have in the game.”
No More Shushing
The main celebration that will NOT feature in FIFA 21 is the iconic ‘shushing’ celebration.
We’ve all experienced it at one point or another. Ryan Kent bangs in a last minute winner to deny you Gold 3 in FUT Champs and then runs over to the camera shushing you as he does so, it’s pretty toxic!
But you can breathe a sigh of relief, as that will not be an option in FIFA 21.
EA has also confirmed that the ‘A-OK’ celebration – made famous by Spurs’ Dele Alli – will not feature in FIFA 21.
That being said, could there be worse celebrations to come in FIFA 21?
There has been no confirmation as to which new celebrations will be added, but recent footage of the game has shown Mbappe doing his trademark ‘cry-baby’ celebration to the camera.
Now if we’re talking toxic celebrations, this is probably worse than the shushing. It’s not the end of the world if it is added, but it could be the end of plenty of controllers!
