EA : 3 Horrible Mistakes in FIFA15

EA-building

As we have seen,FIFA 15 has become the best-selling game in the UK. Electronic Arts FIFA has proven that it’s far ahead of its competitor Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), but the storied franchise has consistently dropped the ball in gameplay and content.

EA has done a remarkable job with the physics engine, gameplay, presentation and licensing, but they have added new features and policies that has deteriorated the game. There are three consequential problems that have affected FIFA 15 gameplay.

Offline gameplay has been totally ignored

We can all agree that FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) and online game modes are the best features of the games. We all have been integrated somehow to playing online with fellow gamers all across the world. FUT allows you to build your dream team and most can argue that this is perhaps one of the most fulfilling things in the game. FUT has become so immense in FIFA that many are proposing a standalone version of the game.

EA’s obsession with FUT has forced them to neglect offline gameplay. It is clear that they spent the least attention on this feature. Seriously, outside of Career Mode, what else is there to do? There aren’t many interesting offline game modes. Whenever the servers are down (which is often), it is likely most of us can’t play. No one wants to waste time of the Training Ground or play the Legends.

Park the Bus was simply wrong for gaming

Real life football teams employ Park the Bus as a defensive tactic, so EA introducing it in FIFA 15 would appear plausible. However, it has been severely exploited by gamers and using the tactic is no longer strategy or fun gaming. The idea has potential, but it can make super teams impossible to beat. Having extreme offensive and defensive strategies are necessary in gameplay, but Park the Bus should not be a necessary evil.

Cheating with Coin Sellers

Here we are again discussing FUT. Sure enough, people have figured out how to abuse the coin system in Ultimate Team. FIFA 15 coin sellers make it much easier to build your dream squad. This is a serious problem for genuine players, because the quality of a team now depends on who can afford the highest. Much like gaming and movie privacy, this is issue has spread like wild fire without no real way of stopping it. Ultimate Team loses its legitimacy due to sellers and buyers who don’t play fair.

Honestly, I have wanted to buy coins myself. Instead, I just don’t play FUT as much as I’d like.
