10 Things We’d Like To See In Fifa 15 Ultimate Team

It’s fair to say that the introduction of Ultimate Team in Fifa has been a success. What was once a bolt-on bit of DLC has been promoted into an integral part of the full game, leading it to become the most popular feature of the series by far.

But despite all it’s good points and hugely addictive nature, there is still room for improvement. We at GamePointsNow thought we’d take a look at a few features that we’d like to see EA implement in the upcoming Fifa 15

1. Let Us Win Players

When I first heard about FUT back when it was DLC, I expected it to be about picking up players from your opponents. After all, it’s basically a trading card game . Adding the option to select a card from a team you beat would really add an extra incentive to all matches, especially when playing the better teams.

While currently you can occasionally win special card packs through winning select tournaments, the ability to win a TOTW player or other special cards would allow players more chance of actually getting some of the better players into their teams. At the moment, you can spend millions of coins on random packs and end up no better off. At the very least, guarantee us a TOTW or Legends card in special packs.

2. Pink Slip Matches

Pink Slip matches (where players gamble high value cards in one-off matches) are already popular amongst the online Fifa community, but to do it you need to game the transfer system. EA should include it as a mode within the game and introduce a whole new risk/reward factor into already tense online matches.

3. Scrap Fifa Points

Bargain!!

Bargain!!

Why does EA think having multiple virtual currencies in one game is a good idea? The only thing you can do with FIFA points is buy card packs, so why deliberately obscure their value by making you buy FIFA points to then buy packs of cards? Drop the points and just keep the gold coins.

Additionally, let us buy gold coins direct in-game. There’s already loads of websites across the internet that offer this ability through a number of TOS breaching methods, so why don’t EA just allow players to buy direct from them and cut out all the grey market middlemen?

4. Release FUT as a stand-alone game

Earlier this year EA announced that FUT was by far the most popular mode in the series, with over 500,000 transfers taking place every hour. In fact. FUT is so popular amongst some players that they only play that mode and ignore all the other features of the game. While Fifa already sells by the articulated lorry load, releasing it as a cheaper downloadable title would get more people to play, and grow EA’s revenue even more.

5. More Variation In Tournaments

Oh look Villa AGAIN!!

Oh look Villa AGAIN!!

If like me you play the majority of FUT offline,the you’ve probably noticed how uninspired the offline tournaments can be. You can often end up playing the same small handful of teams which soon becomes boring. Why not incorporate your friend’s Ultimate Teams into the rotation?

The game already pulls that information and lets you play an offline version of their most recent squad. If anything, it could encourage more people to give it a go online.

6. Generations

One of the biggest gripes FUT players have is that every year you have to start all over again each and every year. While it is understandable with players ratings and clubs changing each year, surely allowing you to keep a select few players or something would ease the pain of abandoning your finely tuned squad.

7. Bring Back The Collection

Back when FUT first started in Fifa 09 it included a feature known as ‘The Collection’, which was basically a virtual sticker album for collecting and displaying players. Instead of selling your unwanted players, you would add them to your collection in return for some coins and the possibility of bonuses for completing teams. If anything, it would make duplicate/rubbish players a little less useless and introduce an interesting decision as to whether or not to sell certain cards for a high price or try and earn a bonus for competing a set.

8. Improve the Transfer Market

oooh shniy

oooh shiny

Considering the transfer market is the crux of FUT, the in-game system isn’t all that great. Quite often the servers will crash mid search or you don’t get enough time to react to a listed transfer. Another annoyance is the fact you can’t search for special cards like TOTW player,s so you have to trawl through hundreds of auctions in order to find the card you’re looking for. A few small tweaks here and there would greatly improve the experience.

9. Customisation

FUT is a game mode that allows you to create your ultimate (ahem) custom team, so why on earth can’t you design your own kits or badges? Yes, I know you can buy kit cards, but allowing players to create custom kit designs would be a great addition. We all know gamers can be amazingly creative when given the chance, so there would be some awesome designs out there. Plus we’d get to dress John Terry in a shirt covered in penises.

10. Actually Punish Quitters

&%$*(&~@!$%*!!

&%$*(&~@!$%*!!

AAARRRRrghhhhhh! Rage quitters are the bane of the online gaming world, yet very little is actually done to combat them. Even more annoying when it costs the innocent party player contracts. The few proactive steps EA take against players who quit out when losing still feels about as meaningless as UEFA’s financial fair play punishments.

Strip persistent quitters of players or even impose temporary bans to really make them think twice before disconnecting when 2-0 down. Obviously, the hurdle with this could be in identifying genuine disconnections but measures such as checking the frequency of outages could be put in place to assist in this.
