In an effort to avoid “behaviors toxic”, EA Sports announced that it would eliminate at least two celebrations of the video game FIFA 21.
One is known by the community as “Shoush”, and with it the player who has scored a goal run celebrating to a corner with the index finger on the lips, as if he defied the public to make silence.
The second is the “A-OK”, the midfielder of Tottenham Hotspur Dele Alli popularized in 2018, when he looked through the gap left by bringing together the index finger and the thumb of his right hand, leaning on the front of the knuckles of the remaining fingers.
“The celebrations are one of the main ways of disturbing the opponents in the FIFA. The player who has received the gol is obliged to look at them and they can be quite irritating,” he mused Eurogamer.
There are certain fans of video games that use them only for cause, as to extend it also serves to let the clock without any purpose other than to annoy.
“The community told us that there are behaviors toxic in the game and we wanted to make sure to eliminate them,” said the main producer of the title football, Sam Rivera.
The idea of EA Sports is to “keep you playing most of the time instead of just wait. On the whole, the intention is to just keep playing instead of doing other things that may not be necessary.”
Not counting the celebrations, EA has also reduced the losses of time which exhibits the FIFA 20 on the substitutions, the kick-off and the band, which can be extended for up to half a minute.
FIFA 21 has cut substantially the wait, as the start of the match, which is now only 10 seconds. Several collections were also benefited by the measure, as the service side (12 seconds), the goal kick, the kicks, corner and penalty kicks (all with a maximum of 15 seconds), as well as the mistakes-free (20 seconds).
Eurogamer recalled that Infinity Ward removed from secretively the gesture “OK” Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, probably for similar reasons.
