Problems with career FIFA mode

Some issues Ive found with career mode

1: Manager does not get pay increase whatsoever, just remove that from the game altogether and let us “imagine” how much you are making. Its a * killer to see yourself making measly 25,000 euros a week after winning CL.

2. Too much player drama, asking to leave, asking to play, asking for better contracts etc. It should not happen as often as it is, Ive got 8 players who are unhappy and want to leave because they don’t play every single game in a season.

3. Growth cap has to be removed, every player has potential to improve, new system should be utilized in which the player avr match rating determines how much player grows with say a cap of +4-6 a season depending of course on age so say divide players into 6 different categories those aged from 16-21 can grow 1-5 ovr a season, 21-25 1-6, 25-29 – 1-4, 29-32 1-3, 32-36 1-2, 36+ 0-1.

4. Bring custom formations back

5. Fix the bugs with player growth, sometimes players become bugged like for example Ive had Eric Dier in my Valencia squad for 7 seasons. He didnt grow at all for no reason whatsoever even though he avg 7.1 and played over 20 games every season. Also bugs like selling a player who reached his full potential (for me Otamendi who got to 85) I check his ovr in Real Madrid after 3 games and he is 88, are common.

6. Kinect is useless, Ive had to disable mine in options simply because if Im playing my career mode and say anything I get a warning that they will terminate my contract even if I didnt use swear words.

7. The hidden ovrs are dumb, theres no point in that.

8. AI is still hogging players, Real Madrid bought Neuer, Schezhny and Courteouis. They also have Navas and a young regen GK. Manchester city had Benzema, Rodrigo, Dzeko, Aguero, Lewandowski and Cavani in 3rd season of my career mode.

FIFA 15 Team Rankings: Our Top 5 Clubs At The Season’s Halfway Point Based On Current Form And Ratings

The European football season is a few matches past the halfway mark at this point of the year, and the transfer window is open. Almost all of the clubs (sorry, Dortmund) you’d expect to be at the top of each league are right it in, and form and injuries have had their effects on the title race.

These Are The 4 Biggest Changes To Destiny’s Crota’s End Raid On Hard Mode
The best teams have shown off their high-end talent and displayed consistency through the first half of the season, yet the competitions in England, Spain, and France remain as close as ever. EA updates the team and player ratings in FIFA 15 to reflect real-life performance, and this part of the season is as good as any to see who’s on top. Our top five clubs are listed below, a combination of the current Matchday ratings and opinion on how effective the teams are in-game:

FIFA

1. Real Madrid

As is usually the case, the Spanish giants come in on top of the ratings. While Barcelona may have some more highly-rated players, the style Madrid plays and the speed of its attackers are simply very effective in FIFA. The 92-rated Ronaldo is the easiest player with which to beat defenses and score with in the game, and Bale is even faster on the other wing. Combine those two with the talented dribblers and passers in the midfield, and Madrid can cut opponents apart on the counter or pick out passes to unlock defenses. Right back and goalkeeper are arguably week spots, but Casillas still pulls off great saves and Ramos and Pepe are among the most effective combinations around.

2. Barcelona
While they’re not playing amazingly well in real life, Barcelona’s very highly rated team is quite effective in FIFA 15. The absurd attacking trio of Messi (95), Neymar (88) and Suarez (91) cannot be matched, but it can sometimes be difficult to get the team flowing. Playing as Barcelona always seems to make you play like Barcelona, and a high press passing game can be troublesome to pull off. If you instead take advantage of the attackers’ dribbling skills and pace, you’ll likely be able to beat any defense ahead of you. The midfield is highly rated as well, but it’s a bit slower and more pass-focused than Madrid’s–speed kills in FIFA 15, and that’s why Barcelona sits second.

3. Bayern Munich

The German champions are coasting through the Bundesliga right now, and one look at their roster shows why. The team is stacked from back to front, with the world’s best goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (90) backstopping an already dominating squad. Lewandowski can finish any chance, and he’s flanked by tricky speedsters Robben (90) and Ribery (88). Goetze (86) and Muller (86) can rotate into a number of positions as well, completing an absurdly gifted attacking band. With solid defenders and passers in Schweinsteiger and Alonso (or Lahm if he’s not at fullback) supporting them, this is an extremely difficult team to break down, and the attacking threat is always present.

4. Chelsea

Luis Enrique’s Barcelona are still in the title race despite an unimpressive start, with Lionel Messi in top form.

4. Chelsea

Chelsea are a dominant force so far this season, and Belgian star Eden Hazard is leading the way with his world class talent.

Though they’re playing like the second or third best team in the world, the FIFA 15 ratings don’t quite get that form across. This is due in part to Mourinho’s focus on team effort and tactical efficiency, but there are of course some stand out stars. The 89-rated Eden Hazard is in scintillating form, and can easily beat players on the dribble with his speed in FIFA 15. Goal-scoring machine Diego Costa (87) will convert up top, and Fabregas’ (87, which should arguably be higher given his assist record) passing can launch the perfect attack. The very pacey Willian (82) can provide another outlet, and Matic locks the game down in midfield. Come at your opponents with pressure and speed and Cheslsea can score easily. Courtois (86) is very difficult to beat between the sticks, and a strong defense will help protect any lead you earn.

5. Juventus

Though not named in the same breath as the rest of Europe’s elite in the last few years, the current Juventus side is quite good. You might see more PSG or Manchester City playing online, but this team is better in the game on paper. The outrageously talented Pogba is now an 87 and can score, create, and defend in midfield, while Tevez is as effective as ever up top. Perhaps the world’s best all-around player Arturo Vidal (87) will make this side difficult to break down and can help the scoring. If there’s a weakness to this team it’s in its speed, but the same could be argued for City’s midfield and defense. Juventus may not immediately come to mind as a top team, but they’re currently leading Serie A and are rated well in FIFA 15.

WeView Verdict: FIFA 15

Despite being the biggest selling game in the UK last year, the response to FIFA 15 in this week’s WeView was much less than that of Destiny, with only several responses to choose from.

The verdict? It’s not as good as you expect, it seems that many people were underwhelmed by the offerings of this year’s instalment in the football series, so let’s get on with it…

FIFA Pro Clubs – absent from the last generation versions – was the only redeeming factor for JustTaylorNow: “it’s not perfect but it’s brilliant, it keeps me coming back.” Taylor didn’t see any improvements over FIFA 14 though, with some glaring issues returning.

“I think the movement of the ball is the biggest difference compared to FIFA 14″ said double-o-dave – as it should be, ball momentum is definitely something they tried to improve with this instalment. Unfortunately, the new animations “look a bit rushed and unfinished” which makes the visuals seem almost like a “leap backwards”.

BrendanCalls simply stated “If you want a football simulator by PES, if you want a fun football game buy FIFA”, a statement which was echoed in other comments. Psychobudgie even called PES a “fun and an excellent approximation of the game” in comparison to FIFA.

As someone who doesn’t usually buy FIFA games, coruscant loved FIFA 15 – perhaps because they didn’t have the direct comparison to 14 which seemed to affect some opinions. “I loved it. I loved the improved graphics, especially the crowds, and the physics, especially how players battle for the ball and can tug each other’s shirts etc – much more realistic.”

Cam_manutd was very disappointed with the game: “It is a lazy effort from EA in which their solid foundations built with Fifa 09 are starting to wane. Pro Clubs and Ultimate Team remain to be among the best football modes out there. But for single minded players, Fifa is severely lacking.”

After reading the other comments, double-o-dave wanted to add to his opinion a bit, and came up with this summary:

“It seems you may as well stick with FIFA 14 if you’ve already got it. I’m pretty sure these were my thoughts when I first got ’15, might explain why I’ve hardly played it. I can’t really see the major upgrade that this was suppose to be over ’14.

So, it’s a bit of an underwhelming verdict for FIFA 15, and given how much people discussed the brilliance of PES, it looks like we’ll have to add that to the poll and see how it fares. There were two Buy It votes, two Sale It votes, one for Plus It, and one for Avoid It this week. We’ve updated the poll below so you can get choosing next week’s title, and we’ve got Surgeon Simulator coming up tomorrow.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team News: Details On Loaning Players, Friendly Seasons And More Announced

The ongoing Gamescom conference has proven a fountain of FIFA 15 information, with EA Sports revealing details about the game’s modes alongside new video.

Yesterday we took a look at the redesigned goalkeepers, which should be smarter and more realistic than before with new programming and animations. FIFA 15’s Ultimate Team–the extremely popular team-building card collection game mode–was also detailed by the developers, and there are some interesting features on the way.
FIFA 15 FUT will feature what is known as Concept Squads, which will let you plan out what your team would like look with cards you don’t currently own. Here’s how the developers describe the addition:

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Legends Cards Revealed
“Think you know what would make a winning team? Concept Squads is a powerful new squad planning tool that allows you to plan future squads using the entire FUT player catalogue. Use Concept Squads to plan your next Transfer Market buys, find replacements for players, and test out different Chemistry combinations.”

You will also be able to loan players in FUT, buying contracts for limited number of matches to help you out in big games or tough run-ins. This will add a different element to the mode, allowing temporary improvement of your team–though it’s unclear what you need to spend to get them. Friendly Seasons are also now offered, allowing you to challenge friends one on one.
EA Sports has also replaced the ‘Heading’ base attribute with ‘Physical’ stat, which encompasses a more useful combination of Strength, Stamina, and Jumping. Stay tuned for more FIFA 15 news from Gamescom as the release date approaches.

Watch: FIFA 15 predicts Swansea City will beat Chelsea 1-0… even if it did take us 15 attempts!

Using the FIFA 15 video game and a Playstation 4, we put Garry Monk’s men up against the league leaders and let the game decide… multiple times

Video: Watch the highlights of Swansea City’s famous win over Chelsea!

We’ve dusted off our crystal ball (Playstation 4) and come up with a rather pleasing prediction ahead of this weekend’s mouth-watering Premier League clash between the Swans and Chelsea.

Yep, it’s time to get yourself down the bookies because Wayne Routledge is going to make himself a hero early in the second half when he fires home the winner… maybe.

Using FIFA 15, we put Swansea up against Chelsea and let the computer play the game to determine who will come out on top.

Admittedly, this wasn’t the first simulation, or second, third, fourth or fifth. But after more 0-0 draws than you thought humanly possible, the Swans finally came out on top.

If you want to follow this game unfold exactly how our scientific experiment predicts, make sure you come back tomorrow when we will have live coverage of the match right here!

FIFA 15 Mobile And Console Titles Released: FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Out Now Free For iOS, Android, And Windows Phone

FIFA 15 has officially launched in North America today, and it is joined by mobile game FIFA 15 Ultimate Team on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Destiny Special Event Live Now, Promises Rare Or Legendary Rewards Only
The mobile title is free on the App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Phone Store. As the name implies, it brings an Ultimate Team mode to mobile devices while still offering on-field gameplay.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team also comes with a new quick simulation mode, a match of the week to try for yourself, and controller support for certain devices that work with smartphones. EA has traditionally published annual mobile FIFA titles alongside the console versions that you had to pay for–it remains to be seen if this will replace the usual mobile release, but seems unlikely they will launch two FIFA 15 mobile games.

List Of Playable FIFA 15 Leagues And Clubs
The Ultimate Team mode is incredibly popular, and bringing it as the focus of the mobile version makes sense. It can also be easily monetized through microtransactions, providing EA with more of a reason to emphasize the mode on a platform familiar with in-app purchases. The game itself is now live at no cost nonetheless, so check it out on your mobile device if interested.

FIFA 15: 15 New Legends Ratings Predictions

The woes of Playstation owners who play FIFA look to be mounting as EA Sports announced last week that 15 new Legends would be introduced to FIFA 15. These historical powerhouses of the beautiful game will be added to the already-ample roster of 42 Legends from FIFA 14, available exclusively to Xbox 360 and Xbox One gamers.

The notion of a team spear-headed by the combo of Pelé and Messi with service from Iniesta and Gheorghe Hagi is part of the reason virtual football can be so much more entertaining than the real thing; a cross-generational team of this nature is only possible thanks to FIFA Ultimate Teams’ inclusion of Legends.

EA Sports

Though there are still several notable absentees from FIFA 15’s roster of Legends such as Diego Maradona, Zinedine Zidane and Brazil’s Ronaldo, the 15 new players all improve an already excellent Xbox exclusive. One question which now needs answering is how these new Legends’ ratings will compare to those of the other Legends returning from FIFA 14. Of course we won’t definitively know the answer to this until the game is finally released next month, but it is always fun to speculate.
The dazzling gold-and-white Legend cards are some of the highest rated players in the game with the highest rated – Pele (95) – being even better than Lionel Messi. Here’s our prediction of how the 15 new Legendary players will be rated:

Rio Ferdinand, Joey Barton and Akinfenwa pick their Fifa Ultimate Team of the year


Not content with his “5″ label, regular media appearances and of course being a footballer for Queen’s Park Rangers; Rio Ferdinand has chaired a panel of English footballers to ascertain exactly who is in the Fifa Ultimate Team of the year.

The selections made by Mssrs Ferdinand, Barton, Walker and Akinfenwa are surprisingly solid and the choice of Paul Pogba in midfield will see many a Fifa 15 fan reassured by their wisdom. The only real question mark is over Toni Kroos in midfield as he isn’t the strongest or quickest but any seasons FUT pro will tell you if you use him correctly, he’s worth his weight in gold.

FIFA 15: 10 New Premier League Transfers Who Should Be Rated Highest

It’s anyone’s guess who the best Premier League team on FIFA 15 will be because of these new signings.

ChelseaFC

With the new Premier League season upon us part of the reason anticipation is so high (aside from the painful three month break) is because football fans across the globe are desperate to see the impact incoming transfers will have on their new clubs. Will the millions Premier League sides spend on bringing in new talent be worth it or will they go the way of Fernando Torres and fall hopelessly short of expectation? These new transfers will also have a huge impact on the way Premier League sides feel on FIFA 15, which is released on 26th September.

Though this season the Premier League sides can’t claim to have splashed the cash in the same way as La Liga teams (namely Barcelona and Real Madrid), there are still many talented players coming over to the most exciting league on the planet.
So far, Chelsea have predictably been the side who have spent the most money, splurging around £82 million on bringing a handful of the world’s most exciting players to Stamford Bridge. Liverpool are hot on the Blues’ tails, spending their Suarez millions and then some on reinforcing the side which was so close to winning the league title last season, though it is worth noting that nearly all of Liverpool’s most expensive signings were already in the Premier League (almost exclusively playing for Southampton) so names like Lallana, Lambert and Lovren are ineligible for this list.

As is always the case, the transfers made this summer will inevitably have a huge impact on the top tier of English football this season. Here are the 10 new Premier League players who will have the biggest impact on the Premier League in real life and in FIFA 15:

FIFA 15: 10 Leaked Chelsea Player Ratings

Jose Mourinho’s return to the Chelsea hotseat may not have yielded any trophies, but did bring stability to a club which seemed in a constant state of turmoil the season before. A resilient showing in a tight Premier League race and a respectable Champions League are rumoured to have earnt rating upgrades for FIFA 15 according to a supposed leak looking at ten of the club’s most high-profile players.

EA Sports

According to the ratings provided, Chelsea look like they’ll be extremely well balanced across the field thanks to their intelligent new signings. Anyone looking to play as a top class club with an established squad and plenty of money to spend should find plenty to attract them here, with at least six already strong players apparently earning a stats increase. We’ll have to wait until closer to the game’s release before we find out for sure whether these leaks are accurate, but in the meantime there’s plenty to discuss and sure to be a few points of controversy as you’d expeect.

Read on to discover which players will supposedly be on the up when the game arrives on September 25th.
