FIFA 16 Price Ranges To Stay

Last year, there were argument for and against the FUT price ranges. Recently, EA Sports have made confirmations that the price ranges will stay to make the game fair for all players.

This confirmation was repeated when Gilliard Lopes replied to a Twitter query about the price ranges. He tweeted back a reply not only regarding the FUT price range status, but also as to the reason why they are firm on letting them remain:

As soon as that tweet appeared, more queries came from FIFA long-time fans. Owing to their experiences in FIFA 15 and with the not-so-satisfied fans, their inquiries went so much as the producer ended up explaining more in-depth as to how it will go about in FIFA 16. He added:  

Nevertheless, there are some who don’t agree with the FUT price ranges. As far as Electronic Arts’s side of the story goes, “The whole price ranges in 16 debate before the game is even out is pointless because everyone is basing their opinions on the 15 market. Illegal FIFA coins -> massive price inflation. People bought Messi for 4M then price ranges came in, so of course they will not sell for 400k. But in a brand new marketplace starting from scratch, without the inflation, Messis would be bought and sold for reasonable prices. ”

Improve the Ultimate Team Edition for FIFA 16

fifa16_6

Come Autumn 2015, the Ultimate Team Edition of FIFA 16 will be for sale. It has been confirmed to be available for PS4, PC and laptop, and the Xbox One. However, EA Sports, EA and EA Canada have not yet officially confirmed versions for other consoles and operating systems. Players of the football season 2014/2015 will be featured in FIFA 16 and the Ultimate Team (FUT) mode. In Jun 2015, FIFA 16 will be announced at the E3 conference in Los Angeles. It will then be possible to pre-order the game a few weeks or months after the announcement. Players can get a lot of free stuff like packs and players if they pre-order FIFA 16 before the release in Sep 2015.

Recent changes in pricing for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team has been recently addressed by EA Sports, and met with angry backlash from numerous fans. “Leveling the playing field” for all players and combatting illegal coin farmers and sellers was the main goals for EA’s drastic move. According to EA Sports in a blog post, “FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) should be fair and fun for every player. What are we trying to achieve with these changes? It’s simple – we want to keep the game fair and secure for everyone, and ensure a level playing field for all FUT fans.”

Ulitmate Team’s current format requires players to buy football players, create a squad, pick a formation and, optionally, assign a manager. Although players are able to set custom tactics when starting a game, these won’t be saved and continued to the next match. Most players would rather prefer to have the team sheet functionality a part of the squad configuration. That means that these settings were set per squad, and also possible to copy them onto other squads. And since no one knows anything about their next opponent anyway, it makes no sense to configure these things per match. The Xbox versions of FIFA games have had extra players for Ultimate Team, including legend players, for the last two years. That cannot be expected for those who are picking up the Xbox 360 or Xbox One versions of FIFA 16.

This modus has been played by million of players worldwide. However, they have ignored the second popular modus, which is Career. EA Sports has stated at the end of summer 2014 that a small team was dedicated to making FIFA 16 and FIFA 16. The most popular and best playercards to be expected are Messi, Ronaldo, Rodriquez, Ronaldo, Benzema, Robben, Costa, Ibrahumovic and some top players in Europe.

Currently, the standard gold packs’ average Return on Investment (ROI) is around -60%. That means one will lose 6 for each 10 FIFA coins they spend on a pack. It’s pretty simple why the ROI is not 100%. Until they found the players they wanted, at 100% ROI, everyone would be able to open packs indefinitely. Also, that means that the rarest playercards will flood the market. That requires for their prices to drop to ~0, effectively removing the incentive of using real money to buy packs. A lot of players are very bored of the gold pack system and decide to buy fifa 16 coin themselves for their own guaranteed enjoyment.

Ultimate Team has to improve and there’s a number of features and fixes for EA to consider if they want FIFA 16 to be the best football game on the planet.

Customizations for Ultimate Team
Ultimate Team mode is the crown jewel of every FIFA game with a lot of coin making tips and tricks such as this article.However, it will still need some practical improvements. For instance, it is a gamer’s team, with the gamer putting together a squad. But in the end, it is being presented as a packaged, random team, that uses a badge from another team, playing inside some legendary stadium. There should be a choice of package design, such as badge varieties.

Availability of More Coins
After imposing cost ranges, EA happened to be inundated by annoyed fans. That was aimed at preventing gold coin-buying and other similar practices for gamers inside the game. It’s taking away revenue from EA so it’s somewhat understandable. But they’ve placed the wrong strategy of preventing it. There is limited cost ranges and it siezes control of the users. There ought to be an introduction of more game modes, challenges and possibilities to earn fifa 16 coins instead.
