These ideas are coming from a regular Fifa player

These ideas are coming from a regular Fifa player. I play a lot of FUT matches, about a 1000 on Fifa 15 so far. i have never purchased coins so all mine are earnt from matches or transfers. I personally love buying and selling players and trying different ones so i am alarmed at how the market has crashed as of late. My ideas are as follows.

Player Values

I understand the maximum player value to stop coin sellers etc. Still not sure why we need a minimum but i am assuming there is good reason. Mt idea is to keep the maximum buy now but make it flexible with the market values as they go up and down. I think an ideal like 30% either way of the current average price of a player. This means if you have a player who has an average price of 30,000 you could put him up for sale with a start of 21,000 and maximum buy now of 39,000. these prices could be constantly watched by the game and adjust up and down depending if the average price rises or falls. For example this would help solve the problem lots have of players not selling because they cant be put up cheap enough. I know this is very similar to how it is now but this would work in real time based on current prices. This would be ideal as well for In Forms and special cards. when these are released for the first few hours there wouldnt be a set price so as the natural market kicks in and sets it. Then lets say it settles at 300,000, you then set it between 210,000 and 390,000. This would then give plenty of flexibility for prices to drop over next few days as they do on special cards.

Price Fixing
My next idea is to stop price fixing, quite simply you are not allowed to purchase a card you already own. If you get a player you already own in a pack you hve to put him on market. If it is someone who buys hundreds of packs and gets lots of same player you can only list one at a time of the same player. This also goes for chemistrys and position changes etc. If you purchase on you have to assign it straight away or if you get one in pack you can only add one at a time to transfer list.

The only problem with this is contracts. I have always been against contracts as it is tedious part of game and obviously put a strain on servers as everyone always needs them. My idea is instead of buying a contract off the Market you just add one automatically, Instead of being a consumable you just click on player and add 30 games for a set fee. This can vary depending on player rating. Lets say 80-84 player could be 300 coins 85-89 400 etc. Because these arent purchased off the transfer market the coins would go out the game thus keeping player prices down a bit as well. This would mean no contracts in packs and maybe put extra players in them to make them more desirable.

Hopefully a few of you will take time to read this and hopefully so will EA

Kid spends over $4,500 in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Mode

Jeremy Hillman shared a story on his blog that many parents will be able to sympathise with. His son, a huge FIFA 15 fan (in particular the Ultimate Team Mode mode), spent thousands of dollars on player packs on his Xbox (it’s not specified whether Xbox One or Xbox 360), without his parents knowledge or permission.

According to Hillman, when he looked at his bank account he realised that they were sending far too much money to Microsoft. When questioned his son confessed that he was buying player packs for Ultimate Team Mode, taking advantage after his father had used his credit card to buy the digital version of FIFA 15 and had left his details linked to the account.

It was only after he contacted Microsoft that Hillman realised that the problem was much more serious than first thought – the bill had already passed $4,500.

Although he acknowledges that he should have paid more attention to what his son was doing on his console, he still points the finger at Microsoft for not having more effective preventative measures for these type of situations, giving the example of Apple in which you must enter a password for each transaction (to be fair to Microsoft, the preventative measures on Xbox One are much improved over Xbox 360).

Hillman says that while the debt of $4,500 is hard to stomach, they will be able to recover relatively quickly by simply giving up some luxuries. However, not all families are able to do this, and many more are facing similar problems, not only with video games, but because of purchases made on multiple devices via digital stores.


New Fifa 15 Ultimate Team Update: Issues, Transfers, Bug Fixes

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is one of the most popular Android games on the market, so don’t be surprised if you hear about it in the news. A new update has been released for FIFA 15 UT, and it addresses some key issues while adding transfers, but some users have reported that the update broke some things, so it’s not perfect.

FIFA 15 issues

This game has had its fair share of updates in the past, but they seemed to do more harm than good. Many users have reported various issues with the game, mostly involving the mandatory Facebook authorization. Users reported all sorts of things from freezes and crashes to motorization bugs. FIFA 15 UT devs have since responded to those reports and attempted to fix them by rolling out various updates. The current version is 1.3.1 and besides a team rosters update that brings players like Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina to Chelsea, it also adds performance enhancements to the mix, along with various bug fixes. Transfers are finally here, and this is a feature that’s been demanded for a long time now. Still, bugs are being reported by a lot of users on both the iOS platform as well as Android.

One of said problems is apparently a glitch that brings users back to the homepage. This may be another authorization issue or a networking issue, but it’s a very common bug right now. A lot of users are also reporting a bug that prevents the game from connecting to the EA servers. One player, for instance, says that he hasn’t been able to play once since he updated the game. You can see how this could be a problem for most players, especially considering that this buggy state of affairs has been going on for a long time. Hopefully, the developers will do something about it and roll out a big update to solve all of this.

Have you updated to 1.3.1 yet? If so, how does it behave for you? Any bugs encountered so far? Let us know by leaving a comment.

Sporting Kansas City vs New York Red Bulls FIFA 15 Predicts

One of the key clashes of the opening weekend sees Sporting Kansas City take on the New York Red Bulls on Sunday night in a game that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 3 in the UK.

It will be the only regular season meeting between the two sides this year as Sporting KC have been moved to the Western Conference and that should mean we see an exciting game.

Both sides have star English strikers in the shape of Dom Dwyer and Bradley Wright-Phillips and it looks like a tough one to call.

So that’s why we’ve put EA Sports’ FIFA 15 to the task of predicting the outcome of the game on Sunday. Check out the video below and vote who you think will win the game below.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTW 25

EA Sports have released their latest edition of the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Team of the Week and the headline news is that the team is led up front by a super in-form Wayne Rooney.

The Manchester United captain scored two goals during the club’s 2-0 win over Sunderland to end a personal scoring drought and help United respond to a disappointing result against Swansea the week before.

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho also makes the team thanks to a second sensational goal in as many weeks as Brendan Rodgers’ side beat champions Manchester City 2-1 at Anfield.

The Brazilian has been in brilliant form since the turn of the year and he was recently named as the PFA Player of the Month for February.

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery makes the team after helping his team to yet another win, this time 4-1 against Koln on Friday night.

Another representative from the Bundesliga is Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels, who like Rooney is a super in-form player.

The first half of the season was one to forget for Dortmund, as they spent it far closer to relegation than the Champions League places.

However recently Jurgen Klopp’s side have turned things around and Hummels excelled in their 3-0 victory over arch rivals Schalke on the weekend.

You can see the full team below.

Hypothetical TOTS Dream team Squad Builders. Which ones better?

Arguably ever single player on both of these squads have a CHANCE at getting a TOTS. Not saying that they will. But that is why it’s called a Dream Team squad Builder. The Team I am using currently is Team 1. But once TOTS comes around just curious which team you like better? I have around 16 million so I want to deck either of these teams out.

Team 1- Current Team

Hoping to have the TOTS Version’s of every player on this team besides Ronaldo and Courtois. Only one that possibly might not get on in my opinion is James as he is out for several months but had a great start to the year and Zabaleta. But if he gets a TOTS he will be the best RB in the game. Already one of my favorites.

Team 2

In this formation i’m torn because I feel like the Tri-o of Vidal, Chielleni, and Lichsteiner is ARGUABLY better than Yaya, Kompany, and Zabaleta. I’m highlighting arguably because it’s debatable for sure. If i chose this team I hope to get everyone TOTS or highest IF Card besides Ronaldo. This team however is solely dependent on either Casillas or Buffon receiving a TOTS card to put in the GK position. Both of there normal cards I do not rate and refuse to use.

Especially you fellow seasoned veteran of FUT after looking at these 2 teams and have a general understanding of what roughly what these players TOTS cards will look like which team do you prefer?

Team 1 or 2?
