An Apex Legends player has accused an EA employee of stealing their account and selling it off to make a profit, suggesting they have done it to multiple players.

Apex Legends players should be feeling pretty excited for the game’s future, especially since Season 11 was announced, promising fans a brand new map Storm Point, as well as Legend Ash.

Having said that, it isn’t all sunshine, as one player has accused an individual, which they believe may be an EA employee, of stealing accounts and selling them off to make their own “side business.”

The player accusing the possible EA employee is karankhushalani, claiming that their account is one of many that has supposedly been stolen and sold off. The post is very long and detailed and even has some links to screenshots which the user claims as proof of the EA employee’s apparent theft.

Essentially, the player had a stacked account, with “60,000 kills, multiple Predator and Master badges, 9 heirlooms, and 650 legendaries,” and is claiming this is the reason his account was stolen. The player met a “random guy” while playing in EU servers who was impressed by his account.

The player then showed the random teammate their skins and Heirlooms on a Discord stream. An hour later, the account was hacked, and even after getting it back through EA support, the account email was changed once again.

The player who he claims hacked his account reportedly stated they told him that they work for EA, and that he knows the EA support worker he has been chatting to, stating the worker’s name which he shouldn’t have the information about. The player has gone back and forth trying to claim their account back to no prevail.

The support lines told him there was nothing they can do and in no way the person that is hacking him is associated with EA. Fast forward, the player finds an EA customer service rep and they are also dumbfounded at what is happening to the account.

The player’s account is banned for cheating and then it is almost immediately overturned, adding fuel to the possible EA employee claim: “At this point, I’m more and more sure that he’s an actual EA employee gone rogue.”

The player is still fighting to get their account back and claims that even some customer service employees are starting to think it could be someone within the company. Further, the user also claims that this same hacker has committed the theft to several other players:

“Also I have a friend of a friend who has had a 4 heirloom account stolen from him by the EXACT same person (we matched discord ID’s) and I found 10 similar threads with the exact same circumstances while googling this.”

However, these are just claims and are in no way confirmed pieces of information. It is possible this hacker could just be saying he is an EA employee to aggravate the victim, An EA developer named Brad has now reached out to karankhushalani to help with the situation, assuring them that the company is looking into the situation.

We will update this story with any further information if any is made available.

FIFA 22 players slam “dead” Ultimate Team content

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is supported with a stream of fresh content, however fans are angry with quality of the SBCs and objective this year.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has been live for just over a month, and a handful of promotions like Ones to Watches and Road to the Knockouts have already been and gone. This hasn’t stopped FUT fans from slamming the daily content EA have rolled out.

While the draw of building an Ultimate Team is what gets players through the door, it’s the constant stream of content and promotions that keeps them around.

So far in FIFA 22, we’ve been treated to the Ones to Watch and Road to the Knockouts promos, with plenty more on the horizon.

However, fans have slammed the lack of daily Squad Building Challenges and objectives so far in FIFA 22, calling this year’s content “dead.”

Despite the regular big promotions, FIFA fans have been disappointed with how little daily content has been released by EA so far in FUT 22, saying there is little to work towards.

Reddit user BavarianAngel posted claiming “the content is so dead,” after weeks of SBCs with very slender rewards and few meaningful objectives.

Other fans responded in agreement, saying there is “nothing to play for” during the week outside of the usual seven Divison Rivals wins.

Many also called out the SBC rewards, which have tended to be extremely low-value packs or 75+ players, which are highly unlikely to give out top-rated superstars.

While there have been some player SBCs, like the RTTK Nabil Fekir and Record-breaker Inaki Williams, fans feel that only releasing them occasionally is making the game “boring.”

“I just wish there was something to play for that gives me the chance at gaining some coins apart from 30k every week and Weekend League if you’re even able to qualify,” pleaded one fan.

The biggest problem FUT players outlined with the “subpar” content so far this year is how difficult it is becoming to make coins.

“This version of FIFA is the best I have played and they managed to ruin it somehow with s**t content,” said another.

They argued that nerfing the quality of SBCs and objectives means that it’s increasingly harder to earn good players without resorting to buying FIFA points.

After all the praise that FIFA 22’s gameplay has recieved, fans are clearly disappointed that EA isn’t giving them much incentive to keep coming back.

It remains to be seen if the developers will work to improve the daily content and allow the game to thrive over the course of the entire year.

Warzone TikTok Tec-9 Loadout

While the OTs 9 dominates the SMG category in Warzone Season 6, this new TikTok Tec-9 class might be exactly what you need to rival the meta.

The current meta in Warzone Season 6 features a variety of weapons. From the Cold War AK-47 to the OTs 9, there isn’t currently much room for a new weapon to come in, especially since JGOD dismissed the RPD.

Having said that, this new Tec-9 class found on TikTok just might rival the SMG meta in Season 6.

The Tec-9 has been out of the SMG meta for some time now, but players are starting to use it again recently thanks to the weapon going viral on TikTok

The TikTok video claims that the Tec-9 can “instakill and destroy people with ease” with these specific attachments:

  • Muzzle: Full Auto Repeater
  • Barrel: Task Force Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Ammunition: STANAG 48 Rnd

The Full Auto Repeater is an essential attachment for the Tec-9, allowing the weapon to become automatic and increase its TTK. The Task Force Barrel is also important for increasing the weapons bullet penetration and velocity.

The Field Agent Grip is another essential attachment for this weapon, helping decrease the recoil of the weapon, improving your accuracy.

The Tiger Team Spotlight is great for increasing your mobility with the weapon, while the STANAG 40 Rnd allows you to sustain fire for longer to take multiple enemies out and finish your kills.

This Tec-9 loadout has an extremely fast TTK at close range, and can even rival the current OTs 9 meta.

Warzone players should definitely give this loadout a try if they’re looking to try something new and strong in Warzone Season 6. For more, check out how to unlock the Kali Sticks.
