FIFA 15 Team of the Week – February 28, 2015

EA Sports has revealed the top performers who have made it in the latest FIFA 15 Ultimate Team of the Week. The team lines up in a 3-4-3 formation this week, and despite some good attacking players on show, doesn’t have many standout cards.

Arjen Robben has a great 93 card, with a significant increase to his shooting stat (+7) and David Silva’s IF card has also seen a significant bump to shooting (+8), passing (+6) and pace (+3). With two silvers in the lineup, though, and three cards below 80, this week’s selection is poor overall.

The cards will be available in packs from 6pm tonight, so expect the transfer market to flood with unwanted cards around this time.

Here is the full Team of the Week:

Kossi Agassa – Stade Reims – 79

Defenders

RB – Roberto Rosales – Malaga CF – 74

CB – Rolando – R.S.C. Anderlecht – 80

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTW 22

EA Sports have confirmed the release of their latest Ultimate Team Team of the Week and the headline news in edition 22 is that Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane is chosen after his two goals helped Spurs win the North London derby against Arsenal.

Kane has been in exceptional form so far this season, scoring 23 goals in all competitions and his performance in the derby summed up the way he has been playing with plenty of hard work and two fine finishes.

He is joined in the attacking part of the line by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who scored twice as Borussia Dortmund beat Freiburg 3-0 and former Chelsea man Andre Schurrle who got an assist in an impressive start with new club Wolfsburg as they beat Hoffenheim 3-0.

FIFA 15 Squad Builder – Serie A Pace XI

West Ham fans will be delighted to see Cheikhou Kouyate make the team after the midfielder produced an excellent display at centre-back against Manchester United, scoring the game’s opening goal with a very clever finish.

Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes is in between the sticks after his man of the match display during his team’s 1-1 draw with PSG which included a number of impressive saves off Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The new team of the week will be available from 6pm UK time and you can see the full team here or below.

Are EA gaming servers DDoSed? EA FIFA 15 & FUT, Battlefield servers down for past several hours

The Electronic Arts servers which are used for multiplayer gaming seem to be having a off day

Gamers and fans of FIFA 15, FUT and other EA titles are having a bad day today as EA Servers are reportedly down. The disgruntled gamers are venting their fury on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

Though no hack is suspected because EA had been having issues with the servers two days ago but a tweet from a Twitter handle KEEMSTARx raises certain eyebrows since this handle tweets the latest news of Lizard Squad. The Lizard Squad official twitter handles have been suspended by Twitter after the Taylor Swift hacking incident.

Users and gamers are using the hashtag #EADown to make their displeasure known at not being able to play FIFA 15 and FUT online. There are also reports that players of Battlefield 4 and Madden 2015 are also experiencing significant issues.

There has been a huge spike in complaints over the past hour on Facebook and Twitter, as well as over 1000 reports have been made on Downdetector within the last hour.

Gamers in the UK, France, Australia and the US have reported technical difficulties signing on to the servers.

FIFA gamers have reported that they are unable to play FIFA 15 online friendlies, seasons or Ultimate Team.

One frustrated gamer tweeted “Love how ea only responds when their product is for sale,” while another shared his own grouse “Having this issue since last 2 days in fifa 15 on ps3. tell me any fix ASAP!”

“The EA servers are not available at this time. Please try again later,” is the message FIFA players are getting when trying to play online.

EA Sports FIFA has not issued any clarification about the server being down as of yet.

EA Sports servers are currently for at least the last four hours on Friday February 6, 2015.

At the time of this publication several visitors to Full FIFA have reported that they are unable to play FIFA 15 online friendlies, seasons or Ultimate Team.

“The EA servers are not available at this time. Please try again later,” is the message FIFA players are getting when trying to play online.

EA Sports FIFA twitter page has also reported some problems on XBox One but PlayStation users are also reporting problems.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Teases TOTY Loan Players

EA Sports is hoping to entice players to get into the real world Premiere League transfer deadline day ahead of time with their official Twitter account. The game developer is teasing a few TOTY loan players for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, their ever popular mobile application for the football video game and real world sport. The company will also give a few of these players away to the community within a new promotion, which you simply need to retweet in order to gain entrance into the running for said players.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Teases TOTY Loan Players

Many people within the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team community asked EA Sports who these players would be and when they would be available as loan options. However, the Twitter account simply directed people towards the news and updates page for the mobile application. This implies everyone within the app’s community can get their hands on the loan players and options within a general update in the future.

However, the very same Twitter account for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is also running a 50 match loan giveaway for four different players from different teams within the Premiere League. The studio is encouraging everyone to retweet for a chance to win loan versions of Kroos, Robben, Messi, and Ronaldo. The tweet in question already has a lot of retweets, so chances of winning any of the aforementioned players dwindles with each passing hour, unfortunately. Within the first minute of being live, the tweet for Ronaldo had over 12,000 retweets.

This is certainly not the first giveaway promotion EA Sports has offered for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. The game development studio seems to have something new for the community every few weeks or so, as they continue to support their game and the community that loves what they are doing. Of course, a promotion isn’t the only way to get these new players, so keep an eye out for a new update, too.

EA Sports confirm the release of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTY Loan Players

EA Sports have revealed on Twitter that they are going to be releasing some of the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Team of the Year players on loan for a short period of time.

Every year EA Sports release a TOTY Ultimate Team edition with the players who were named in FIFA’s Team of the Year and this year’s edition included an in-form Cristiano Ronaldo rated at 99 and an in-form Lionel Messi rated at 98.

Now, with transfer deadline day proving to be a slow burner, EA decided to spice things up a little bit by releasing some of the star players on loan in Ultimate Team for brief spell.

The news is likely to be greeted by all FIFA Ultimate Team players with the in-form Ronaldo in particular proving to be an extremely popular signing given his propensity to score goals from all angles.

It seems as if Arjen Robben and Toni Kroos will probably both be available as well along with Messi and it will be interesting to see whether or not the entire team will be released.

You can see the full team below.

FIFA 15: Surprise FUT Transfer Updates Go Live

Fans of FIFA are chomping at the bit as the January transfer window comes to a close and the January update release date edges closer.

As the window grows older more transfers are made between clubs, and a FIFA fan’s game becomes more and more out of date. This is an obvious frustration that leaves millions tearing their hair out as they frantically edit their game’s squads, trying to keep up.

This makes the day that FIFA releases the January update all the more special. It’s bigger than Christmas, really.

However, this year, EA Sports has taken the unprecedented step of releasing a number of high profile transfers early to appease the undoubted high number of disgruntled gamers all over the world.

This newest update, released on January 29, is the fourth update we’ve had already, and we’re not even in February yet! This is more like it, FIFA.

The biggest moves that have been updated so far include: Wilfried Bony, Fernando Torres, Christian Rodriguez, Jermain Defoe, Xherdan Shaqiri, Rasmus Elm and Florent Malouda.

Normally, and very frustratingly, we are forced to wait for up to a week after Big Ben strikes 12:00am on January 31 for the update to be released.

The winter window is a tad skewiff all over Europe this year as every major league’s transfer period ends at different times. This made the release date of the update very much uncertain.

Many expected it to arrive on February 7 but EA has already quashed those rumours by releasing these world stars early.

Here are the 10 biggest deals that have been released in the latest update.
