EA Sports Boosts Tim Cahill’s Rating in FIFA 15

The other week, we saw the top player rankings released for FIFA 15. Amid the usual arguing about ratings assigned, there was a particular outcry by fans on the behalf of New York Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill. EA Sports had assigned the Socceroos star’s rating as just 69. Tim Cahill is actually featured on the cover of the Australian edition of FIFA 15, and is one of the brand’s ambassadors. Gamers, furious about his low rating, launched a deluge of complaints at EA, stating that the decision was “disrespectful,” “a disgrace,” “disgusting,” and other words which we probably shouldn’t type here. Some gamers even threatened to boycott FIFA 15.

We still don’t why EA made the initial decision it did. Having hunted around, we haven’t found much in the way of comment from the publisher—except an excuse which may or may not have any truth in it. EA claims they never rated Cahill with a 69, and that the number in question was “pulled from a resource without access to final FIFA 15 data.”

The statement is a bit strange, since the word “final” suggests that at some point they were considering giving Cahill a 69. Regardless of the details, they have listened to their players and have boosted Tim Cahill’s rating from 69 up to 74. This is only partially satisfactory, and in some ways still seems to be an insult. Why? Last year, Cahill rated a 75. Players with ratings of 75 and above are considered “gold cards,” in the FIFA games. While EA has boosted Cahill’s rating, they have not returned him to gold card status.

Do you think EA was being deliberately misleading with their vague statement, or that the 69 rating really was just a false rumor? Are you angry that Cahill still doesn’t rate a 75?

FUT 15 Web App is finally up !

This year EA Sports has not released the Web App in the announced date: September 17 (Wednesday). They did it one day later. Now you can access https://www.easports.com/fifa/ultimate-team/web-app and start your season. Before you do it, we suggest you to take a look to our advices about what is expecting you. It doesn’t take more than 2 minutes and it will be important to you be more prepared, especially if it is your first Web App early access.

Where is the Web App ?

If you are one of those that can’t get in the Web App, check the URL again, try to use another browser or clean the cache of the one you are using. Remember that many thousands of gamers are trying to access. If you can’t enter, try later.

Turn on Login Verification

In the near future, Login Verification will be a mandatory step before you can access the FUT 15 Web App. It is very easy to do it. Just enter on your Origin account here and enable it. Then, just confirm the email or sms they have sent to you, verify your FIFA Ultimate Team Secret question and answer and store your codes in a safe place.

I’m new to FUT !

Sorry but if you are new to FUT, Web App early access is not for you. Only gamers who have created a security question/answer on their consoles before August 1st 2014, are eligible to start the Web App now.

How many packs ?

Besides the starter pack, you will get at least one welcome back pack. The amount of packs you get depends of your FUT 14 activity. If you played EA Sports FIFA World Cup Brazi 2014, you will get a bonus.

Bad luck ?

No, it is not bad luck. It is like this with every one. To pull a Messi or any other great player in the starter pack is virtually impossible. Don’t dream with great cards because you will be disappointed. Welcome back packs are a slightly better but keep your expectations low.

More packs

If you want to buy packs you will need to use your few coins. You can only transfer FIFA Points on a console with EA Access or the retail version of FIFA 15. If you have EA Season Ticket for Xbox 360/PS3, you will be able to transfer your FIFA 14 Points to FIFA 15 Points during the early access period for EA Season Ticket.

I can’t make profit !

Buy low, sell higher is more difficult in the first days than in the rest of the game because the cash flow in the market is very low. Be patient. As soon as the game is launched everything will change.

It’s in the game!
