The 'no loss glitch' has caused quite a stir in the FIFA 22 community!
Much to the fans' pleasure, EA has come down hard on the players who abused the method in Ultimate Team and FUT Champions specifically.
What is the 'no loss glitch'?
The 'no loss glitch' in FIFA 22 allowed FUT Champions players to essentially rage quit and not take the loss by tricking the system into thinking there was a connection issue of some sort.
This meant players could reach the higher ranks in FUT Champions with no problem, as they basically had unlimited attempts to get there.
There has been absolute outrage amongst the Ultimate Team community, but EA has finally, after two weeks, punished the players who used the glitch.
30,000 players BANNED
EA has banned over 30,000 accounts that abused the infamous 'no loss glitch', much to the pleasure of the FIFA 22 fanbase.
In a quick statement via social media, EA revealed that following a patch this past 16th October that completely removed the glitch, the devs have taken action against thousands of cheaters in the past days.
We have identified over 30K active accounts that exploited this issue consistently and have suspended them from FIFA 22 online for 7 days, preventing them from participating in this week’s FUT Champions Finals.
According to multiple users, the initial ban will be of seven days with an extended period of time if this is not their first offence, however, no word on whether their FUT Coins would be reset.
How to qualify for FUT Champs
This year, players start off in Division 10 in Rivals and will have to make their way through the ladder until they are able to enter the FUT Champions Finals.
Players will now be allocated points based on their performance, as opposed to the traditional wins format that was used in years past.
Here's how FUT Champs Weekend League is going to work this year:
- Winning a match moves you forward one Stage
- Losing a match moves you back one Stage unless you are on a Checkpoint
- Drawing will keep you at your current position
Plus, the record you’ll need in order to obtain a certain rank is also going to differ.
Check out the ranking system based on your wins and losses below.

Once you have accumulated enough points during the season, you’ll be able to enter the FUT Champions Play-Offs, which is also a points-based system.
You can play these playoff games throughout the week when suits you best, then once you've earned enough points, you can enter the FUT Champs Finals.
This final stage is going to take place on Weekends, so make sure you have enough time during these days to get the 20 games in.
