Help us improve EA Help! Take Survey No, Thanks

Just like you can’t poke, eye gauge, or knee a downed opponent in the UFC’s Octagon, our EA Octagon has rules, too.

Learn how to play by the rules and keep your account safe on select EA services in UFC. 

We will never ask for your EA Account, Xbox Live Gamertag, or PlayStation™Network passwords. If anyone tries to get that information from you, know that it’s not us.

TIP: Learn about phishing and how to avoid it.

What are the rules? What if I break the rules? More about rules and help

It’s easy to play by our rules if you know what they are. Check out our article on playing by the EA rules.

Hack other players’ accounts

It might seem like a no-brainer, but accessing another player’s account is totally and completely against the rules.

Buy Coins

⚠️There isn’t an Ultimate Team mode in UFC 4.

You can earn UFC Ultimate Team (UT) Coins by playing UT and buying and selling cards, but buying Coins from a third-party is against our rules.

Here are a few ways to earn Coins legitimately:

  • Play games in Ultimate Team.
  • Complete solo challenges.
  • Buy and sell items.

Buying Coins isn’t fighting fair. It affects the player economy.

If you buy Coins, you’re at risk for having your account information stolen by phishers. Coin Sellers need account login information to give out Coins, so they can remove players and Coins, too. Then they’ll turn around and make a profit off of the items they steal and hack someone else. Help keep your account safe and don’t give your login information to anyone, especially not to buy Coins.

Buying “mule” accounts or performing comfort trades are also not allowed. These things are against our gameplay rules because they have a negative impact on the game economy, and they damage gameplay for you and other players. When in doubt, don’t do it.

Farm Coins

Like we said above, you can earn Coins in a bunch of different ways in UFC. But farming Coins is not one of them.

Don’t know what Coin farming is? Good, keep it that way.

For those of you who do, if you use any sort of bots or disconnection methods in-game so you can earn Coins fast and illegitimately, that’s breaking the rules. Just stop. Don’t pass Go. Don’t collect $200.

Distribute or sell accounts

Account selling and distribution inflates the UFC economy. That means disrupting the safe buying and selling environment that legitimate players are trying to use to get the players they need for their Ultimate Team. That’s rude.

Promote account buying and selling

Promoting the sale of accounts, anywhere, breaks our rules. Buying accounts breaks our code of trust, remember? We just told you that, two paragraphs ago.

Make false claims

Making a false claim to EA Help Advisors or any other EA representative is against our gameplay rules, and it’s not cool. Breaking the rules makes it hard to provide a fun, safe, and secure environment for you and all players.

Cheat in-game

Nobody likes a cheater. It’s like kicking a downed opponent, so it’s against our rules. Cheating can include, but isn’t limited to, using external tools, performing in-game exploits, and abusing glitches or bugs. In-game cheating is not fair play and hurts the experience for the players you are playing against.

Don’t use foul language or suggestive content

If you wouldn’t do it in front of your mom, don’t do it online. Avoid everything offensive in the Create Fighter tool. 

We have our rules in place because we want UFC to be the best that it can be for all players.

If you break our rules, we can:

  • wipe your UT Coins
  • remove your account from UT leaderboards
  • remove your UT rewards
  • limit or remove your eligibility for competitive gaming
  • suspend your console from playing UFC online modes for a period of time, or forever
  • ban you from your current UFC game
  • ban you from all UFC games
  • ban you from all EA games.

Think you were banned or suspended by mistake?
