FIFA 15 Ultimate Team – TOTW 33

 

EA already picked the best players of the week. The players names were unveiled this Wednesday at 3pm UK.

 

On Saturday, Paris Saint-Germain defeated Lille 6-1 in a match that featured an Ezequiel Lavezzi hat-trick. Then on Tuesday evening, the club extended their win streak to five games after they defeated Metz 3-1. In addition to the strong run in the league, the win moved the defending champions into sole possession of first place, three points ahead of Lyon.

It has been a wild few days for Inter. On Saturday, they defeated AS Roma 2-1 in a match that featured a goal by Hernanes. They followed that up on Tuesday, with a 1-2 victory over Udinese. At the moment, Inter sit in seventh place, two points out of a place in one of Europe’s continental club competitions.

Despite a 12th minute own goal, Napoli managed to defeat Sampdoria 4-2 and remain very much in the hunt for a European club competition berth. Gonzalo Higuaín scored twice in the victory, once in the first half, then he followed that up with an 81st minute penalty conversion.

EA already picked the best players of the week. The players names were unveiled this Wednesday at 3pm UK.

 

On Saturday, Chelsea inched closer to claiming the Barclays Premier League title following their 1-0 win over Manchester United. Eden Hazard scored the match’s only goal in the 38th minute, increasing his season total to 13.

Claudio Bravo and the rest of the FC Barcelona squad played extremely well in their 2-0 victory over Valencia at the Camp Nou. FCB maintain a two point lead over Real Madrid with six matches remaining.

The title race in France continues to heat up. On Saturday, Paris Saint-Germain defeated Nice 1-3, with Javier Pastore twice putting the ball in the back. Then on Sunday, Lyon only managed a 2-2 draw with St. Etienne. The results mean both clubs are level on points, with PSG having a game in hand.

fifa15books : Virgin Gaming: Is Branson’s New Business Doing Well?

 

Long-time readers may recall that back in April 2013 we ran a piece on Virgin Gaming’s new Xbox Tournaments App. For a company usually concerned with the high flying tourism, banking and record businesses, this new focus on gaming was a welcome departure; players of the ever-popular FIFA 13 could download an app which allowed them to play in-game tournaments that afforded them the chance to win a share of $100,000 worth of prizes. It was a savvy move accompanying one of the company’s first video gaming ventures, but how well has Virgin done to capitalise and grow its gaming business?

Whilst Virgin Gaming is still going strong, the company’s console arm has undergone something of a re-brand. Despite now being called World Gaming, there are precious few differences between it and Virgin Gaming, the site and in-console app still providing tournaments and eSports for competitively-minded gamers.

Instead of purely providing tournaments for FIFA 13 though, the site now hosts tournaments for FIFA 15, NBA 2K15, MADDEN 15, NHL 15, Hearthstone, FIFA 14, Starcraft 2, UFC, World Of Tanks, Titanfall, Forza 5 and Gran Turismo 6, and as a result the number of players, variety of prizes and general inclusiveness of the site has been enormously improved!

Players can still pay a small entry fee to enter the competitions and tournaments or instead opt for a $5 per month, all-you-can-play subscription, also being able to wager on important games even if they aren’t necessarily playing in them. It seems that, concerning consoles, Virgin has a highly viable eSports business on their hands.

Whilst World Gaming caters for hardcore console players, Virgin Games (another of the company’s video ventures) firmly has its sights set on mainstream, mobile-oriented players, the population of which has exploded alongside the uptake in smartphones and tablets. The site itself has all manner of bingo, casino and slots titles for players to choose from, with some, such as Double Bubble, offering prizes up to £80,000! The website also released a Facebook application-based port of the services, and although this site is still in its beta stages of development, tens of thousands of players regularly log-in to the site to take advantage of its incredibly inclusive approach to table gaming. Again, tournaments are a big part of the Virgin Games Facebook experience.

It’ll be interesting to see in the coming years how Virgin’s new gaming business progresses and develops. It seems that Branson and co. may have hit the nail on the head when it comes.

Ander Herrera had a brace as Manchester United defeated Aston Villa 3-1 on Saturday at Old Trafford. The win saw the club move into third place, one point behind second place Arsenal and a point ahead of cross-town rivals City.

On Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo was unstoppable as he scored five of Real Madrid’s nine goals against Granada. The match ended 9-1, with Ronaldo earning a first-half hat-trick in the span of eight minutes. The win keeps Real Madrid within four points of leaders FC Barcelona.

Also on Sunday, Paris Saint-Germain defeated Marseille 2-3 to maintain their slender one point lead atop the Ligue 1 standings. PSG’s Blaise Matuidi opened the scoring for the defending champions, while a Marseille own-goal in the 51st minute ended up being the difference.

fifa15books : EA Answer to Ten FIFA 15 Community Questions

 

Chu Morah, FIFA 15 Community Specialist answered to ten community questions. Let’s take a look…

 
 
 

EA Answer to Ten FIFA 15 Community Questions

 

Q: As it is near impossible to be able to afford some of the best players in the game purely by playing matches, are there any plans to have larger rewards for playing games?
A: Our focus is on balancing and stabilizing the economy so that current coin rewards maintain their intended value. Increasing coin rewards for matches would only continue the imbalance and instability of the FUT economy. However, we’re currently exploring new FUT promotions and content ideas while keeping the game balanced. We will also offer featured in-game tournaments with bigger rewards.

Q: What’s the reason behind implementing universal price ranges instead of doing it for each console (separately)?
A: At first, Price Ranges were universal for all players across all platforms. We felt that this was the fairest method of introducing the feature. And to be honest, it was also the best way to manage the feature on the back end. However, based on your feedback, we’ve already set separate ranges on different platforms for high-rated players.

Q: Is there a reason for minimal price bands, if so what is it?
A: Removing the minimum range would open Price Ranges to the movement of fraudulent coin selling transfers. Coin sellers are looking to use certain players with market values much lower than their maximum range in order to transfer set amounts of coins. We understand that the minimum price range has been a frustration for many of you, but it’s a necessary part of eliminating coin selling in FUT. We’ll continue to adjust Price Ranges for players in order to find the right balance for the Transfer Market.

Q: Why were price bands implemented at this point in the life cycle of Fifa 15?
A: The inflation of player prices (due to increased levels of fraudulent coins in the market) had to be addressed as soon as possible. The benefits, including a balanced market and attainable player prices, are the positives of making this change for FUT 15.

.Q: Is anything big planned for after TOTS this year to keep people interested in FUT? (like they did last year with World Cup mode?)
A: We got some cool promotions planned, including brand new in-forms. We still haven’t used our pink IF colour yet ;-).

 

EA Answer to Ten FIFA 15 Community Questions

 

Q: Why is the gameplay so different between FUT and Online seasons? Seems like the general pace of the game is way different and the gameplay mechanics are noticeably less-buggy in Online seasons. Also there are some features in online seasons that are very helpful to tweak my squad exactly to my liking ie custom formations & ability to save custom tactics. Is there any reason why these weren’t included in FUT?
A: Chemistry is the difference between FUT and Online Seasons. Chemistry boosts player attributes (shooting, pace, and more). We believe that custom formations don’t really work well with the chemistry system and would be exploited.

Q: Could you tell us exactly how chem styles and overall chemistry affect our players? What does playing on 4 chem vs 7 chem vs 10 chem look like from a programmers point of view? What does a Hunter card look like from a programmers point of view? We can see what it says on the screen, but what is it actually doing behind the scenes.
A: It’s hard to easily explain without going technical details, but here goes. The general principle of player chemistry is this: if a player has less than 5 Chem, they will perform worse than their base attributes. If a player has greater than 5 Chem, then they will perform better than their base attributes. A Chemistry Style then amplifies the nature of that improved performance for the base attributes it affects. So each chemistry style is mapped to a set of systems that affect the player, and then we use the chemistry number to determine how they fall within the range of “less effective” to “more effective”. Team chemistry also affects every player slightly, but not nearly as much as individual chemistry.

Q: Will I ever be able to trade players with friends again through trade offers? I used to like trying out my friends Ibra and letting him try out my Robben, etc.
A: We currently have no plans of bringing Trade Offers back to FUT, and that’s simply because of coin selling. The majority of times the feature was used, it was used for coin selling. After looking the feature’s usage numbers and a very, very small amount of people were using it for the right reasons like you were.

Q: Would EA consider releasing throwbacks cards every Thursday like 2K does in MyTeam, or Madden in Mut with flashback players?
A: Unlike single-league sports like American Football and basketball, football is a lot more complex as it deals with multiple clubs, leagues, and countries. We only have access to players at their current teams, not their previous teams. This is why FUT Legends don’t have clubs associated with them. Games like EA SPORTS MADDEN deal with a single league license, so they have a lot more flexibility and access to the past and present.

Q: I keep hearing about this ELO matchmaking system, but we never see an ELO score for ourselves or our opponents. I’d like to actually be able to see the ELO rankings for me and my opponent so I know what’s going on when I’m on a big win/loss streak. Is there any way we could get some transparency there?
A: A while ago we did show skill ratings (which incorporates ELO) in matchmaking for FIFA. However, we found that that people were using this for the wrong reasons. For example: many would deliberately lose in single H2H matches in order to bring their skill rating down. Then they would then use that lower skill rating to matchup against weaker opponents in order to progress in FIFA Seasons. Therefore, we decided it best to not have it displayed any more.
