    Fix the fucking game.

    I was on course to win the season, then three games in a row it disconnects when I’m winning, so I get a loss for all of them. And the stupid thing is the other person probably just loses a contract and has to play again. So the only person that wins is… EA. as usual. They’ve gave up even trying to make a game that works, it’s basically just a big piggy bank for them now.

    Better matchmaking to get rid of the handicapping/scripting. It is saddening and feels like it makes the game tainted, even when it is in my favor and I win, it takes away most of the satisfaction. We play because we are competitive. Losing or winning because of AI assistance takes that away.

    You’ll love this one…. Minimum trade value locked at quick sell price. True market value that would eliminate cartels putting a floor on cards. Let’s see what Messi is really worth.

      I basically think the whole tradepile setup should be split into two:

      A “Players up for sale” section, where the player only has a fixed price, and where he stays up for sale unbtil he is sold or withdrawn by the seller.

      A “Player up for auction” section, where the player is sold on auction terms, and where the sellerd decides on an auction duration.

      I think there are some pretty heavy disadvantages to your suggestion of locking the minimum trade price to the BIN value. Although it may help the buyer, it imposes a big disadvamtage and risk on the seller. I like the commercial aspects of deciding how to sell various players.

    I’d like to see an option that lets you make multiple lineups so that you can change quickly when you pause the game…

      So, not only changing formation but also substituting the required players?

    Everytime I want to pause the game because my, for example central defender got a red card, I tries to click the start button and if I don´t have the ball this box comes up saying that i can´t pause when not in control of the ball… This box is showing way too long! It distracts me because I can´t barely se the game…
    Please shorten the time for the box, it don´t need to be 7-8 seconds… Or if you could add an option to turn this notification off.

      Both players should be allowed to press pause when the ball is in the middle third of the pitch. No one should be able to pause outside that area, except for during free kicks and the like.

        You are absolutely right. Recently my opponent paused the game as he was in my box just before my defender would my the standing tackle, but after resuming the game it was mistimed …

    I like the feature of a player getting injured and all that stuff, but… Why are they still playing if they are injured? EA should add so that if a player gets injured you have to sub him out.

      In real life, some injuries are more fatal than others. The question is what non-fatal injuries add to the game in terms of playability.

    Why can’t there be better ROI on NON-TRADEABLE Packs? That way you could either spend 7.5k on a pack to trade or 3k-4k on a pack that players could only be kept or quicksold?

      I think the suggestion of non-tradeable player packs would be nice, but one need to keep in mind that even untradeable packs have a (negative) impact on prices, as they will reduce the general demand.

    the only thing i don’t like about FUT is the way the leagues work. It is an online game, but i only ever feel as though i am competing with myself. having to reach 19 points to gain promotion is fine, but i’d much rather be in a real league where i compete for the top spots with other online players.

      It’s obvious why tournaments and seasons work like they do. The logistic side of arranging matches at specific times would be awful. A tournament with just 5 teams would involve 20 matches having to be played on time.

      But of course, some people may be able to handle that, so why not let them do it?

    position changes need to be revised. Why can’t we change a RM to LM and vice versa? That happens in real life during games let alone for the starting line up.

      You do realize what would happen is that the players values would drop tremendously since you could now make players like Neymar a CAM and idiots would buy out the position change cards and resell them at a ridiculous price so it would be too expensive for the average player to afford these cards. Would be nice, but I like it better when these cards are rare and available at certain times of the year.

    I´m burned out of seeing Messi´s face in 42′ full HD every time I run the game. I mean, I know he sells… a lot! I get it, but frankly, I think EA can be a little more creative on the use of his image, rather than rubbing his face on us everywhere on the game. And I suspect this is what the front picture on this article may suggests…

    the ability to loan a friend a player for a set number of games would be helpful….

    Would also be nice to have updated commentary packs available… I’m sick of hearing about Shakira singing at the world cup

    What about you revise the loan system. Say I own Eden Hazard I put him on a loan market where other people can bid to own your player for whatever amount of TIME say 1 hour to 1 week. After the time is up I get Eden Hazard back and the coins from the loan. I know this would require EA to basically build a new seperate market system but this would give people a new way of making coins. I would assume if your selling Hazard for around 200k. You would loan him for a week at around 5-10k. Also all parts of the card would transfer such as fitness, contracts, and health. And these would transfer back to the original owner also.

    I think the loan feature could be excellent of revised – you have a seperate transfer market or ‘loan list’ where fifa players can list their cards up for the usual hour, 3 hours etc up to 3 days, and for a much cheaper price than purchasing them outright, he lists them for loan. This is a way of investment trading for bigger players and allowa smaller players to really have a go with the top players in fifa! For example a loan messi for 1 hour would sell for maybe 20-30k? As he only lasts for 3ish games, then is automatically returned to the owner.

    Very good article.

    A few ideas I have:

    -More incentives to make bronze and silver squads. Most tournaments seem to be professional with no specified requirements.
    -The more you play, the more fans you earn, thus the bigger ground you can have. Coins can be generated from ‘ticket sales’, so the more successful your team is, the more fans will come. As you go through the game, the bigger grounds could be unlockable.
    -Whole squad contracts consumables
    -A rejig of the loan system. They made a big deal out of this, but then it turns out most players could probably get 5 or 6 loan players, as they are few and far between.

    An additional thing: When passing and fyring throws, free kicks etc. highlight the player you are pointing at to avoid some of the passes where the ball simply doesn’t go to the intended player
