Thousands of Madden NFL 23Ultimate Team players have declared a Pack Strike on social media. The games' biggest influencers have said they'll be buying premium currency for the games microtransaction mode until changes are made to the odds of obtaining desirable items from Ultimate Teams loot boxes, as well as Maddens' gameplay overall.

With the following tweet from Madden influencer Zirksee, the hashtag #PACKSTRIKE got going on Tuesday. Madden Ultimate Team gamblers aren't getting enough value out of the games more costly bundles, or by re-rolling cards, where players toss the less desirable items they draw and try to get a better card.

RETWEET FOR AWARENESS:Myself and other creators in the community have decided to go on a pack strike. We need to make changes. DO NOT BUY POINTS! Here are the things we want to see changed. JOIN US TO HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

Despite the damage they're causing to their teams' performance, thousands of Madden NFL Ultimate Team supporters have expressed their support for the microtransaction strike, vowing not to buy better players out of the open market.

Madden NFL 23 was released on Aug. 19. We found that the game performed extremely well, especially when it came to the running game and its blocking assignments. But in the larger context of its Ultimate Team and Franchise modes, the game is most often stumbling, and many players are discovering the games are not going to continue to use it for the remainder of the NFL season.
