Hey Rob, you wanna do something?

@Rob instead of just adding promo packs and informs, maybe you can relay on some of the information to the devs.

A community manager should be giving us (the consumer) updates on what EA as a whole is doing to make the game better, and you should be updating the devs on important issues. It's obvious you don't want to do your job properly, so why have it? Go work at McDonalds if you want something easy to do. Seriously, this is getting ridiculous.

You won't even reply to threads that are tailored with criticism, are you really that scared?

This is literally the only thread you've helped someone out on, and it was hardly a helping hand:
http://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/80768/im-a-disbled-gamer-useing-two-button-and-as-right-now-the-two-button-controls-not-for-online
And you know what's bad about that? It took you 5 pages of posts and tags to get a reply out of you, that's ridiculous.

You know you don't enjoy the game. You know it has a bunch of flaws. You know how we feel about it. You know that you're losing money. So do something about it.

    Are you sure EA is losing money? Wouldn't surprise me if they were selling more FP than ever this year.

    Also this is probably the best FIFA ever.

    I'm completely with you on wanting feedback from Rob, and getting the disabled gamer some assistance.

    But, honestly you have no clue if they are losing money compared to other fifa's. You have absolutely zero concrete evidence to be throwing out claims like that.

    Do you think they would announce 23 man TOTW only five weeks in to fifa 16 if they were making more money than ever before? Nope.

    Usually when a video game introduces more content (DLC, expansions, more in-game items, etc.), it's because they are doing well with that product.

    If they were downsizing in terms of promotional stuff for FUT, that would probably be a better sign that EA is losing money.

    The community has been begging for that. That's not evidence at all.

    The game isn't just going to flop over and die like you may expect it to. EA are extremely smart at being a business more so than anything else. They will find a way to win customers over.

    And as for the large amount special cards and various promo packs. What we are seeing from FIFA is child's play in comparison to what goes on in Madden's UT.

    This makes no sense in this case because, DLC's take time to create and publish by developers, whereas adding five players to a TOTW takes no time at all to create.

    Why would they downgrade TOTW if they're not making enough money rather than upgrading the TOTW?

    The community has been begging for it? Since I joined the forums in late 2013 I've only seen an absolute MAXIMUM of three threads created about having an upgraded TOTW.

    Madden will always have a lower amount of consumers than fifa, which means it will require more promotional items to maximize profit.

    Wrong it takes a press of a key to change a color of a card and a click to increase stats. A intern can do that for ea so its really doesnt mean their doing bad or good

    I bet they are making more money than the last couple years at this time. Not nearly as many people buying coins.

    Just because they release star hero cards on the weekend doesnt mean they are losing money. Madden has a hero card and all sorts of colored cards. It could be that they are using that model in an expanded role. I actually raised the idea of doing things more like Madden last year cause why not? More cards better for the gamers and more FP sold works for EA as well.

    Now the gameplay and those kind of issues, that is a different story.

    Been on the forums since UT13 and I completely agree with your statement because it's so true, he almost never responds.

    Though you can't really blame him, he can't openly say that Fifa sucks because he'd lose his job.

    And to the OP, it's not his job to do anything about it. He could relay what people want to the developers of this game but it really doesn't matter at all because the playerbase on here is only a tiny fraction of what makes them money. No company in their right mind would try to change a video game to appeal to the minority rather than the majority which are the kids who prefer an arcade football game.

    If people stopped being stupid and stopped buying their products then they might be inclined to change something regarding gameplay but everyone knows that's not going to happen especially when they have a monopoly on most of the licenses.

    Fairs you got a point but ut is not a card trading game mode tbf, game has a great potential but it is extremely boring because of the certain issues; auto defending&high pressure&high in drug refs&opponent not found etc...

    Last year I wrote a long and detailed message asking for answers to questions. My post was respectful and mature. Their response? Make it so that my thread would not get bumped when new posts were added. There were many people that witnessed it and can attest that it was not a tin foil hat conspiracy theory. That told me all I needed to know about ea as a company.

    So to answer your question, no they don't want to do something.

    No, but he can tell the devs to fix things that need fixing. He can tell us what the devs are doing to fix things. So why doesn't he do this? It's simple, he couldn't care less about these things.

    Read what I edited in, it's common sense why he doesn't do this, it's a waste of time.

    Also, remember that they officially denied making wholesale changes to Fifa 15 with the pach, even though we all know they completely tweaked the whole thing.mthey officially stated they changed only defensive positioning on lobbed through balls.

    They can and will change the game at will and then threaten to ban you if you have the audacity to question it.

    It's not his job, but why host the forums if you're not going to use them to your advantage? We may as well use the futhead forums.

    It's not even about how "arcadey" the gameplay is, it's about the things that happen in the game that doesn't get fixed such as:

    - Manual passing power isn't 100% manual
    - Manual switching isn't 100% manual
    - Keepers don't pass the ball, they just boot it out of bounds
    - Keepers are way too good inside of the box

    and there are many, many more, but I'm not going to list those here because that's not what this thread is about. It's about having @Rob relay information to us and the devs.

    They've never been consistent with communicating with us on the forums. Never have and never will. THEY. DO. NOT. CARE.

    Although they did just send out the survey, idk what they'll do with that, it would be nice to get some sort of confirmation that I didn't fill it out for my health

    If rob had to sit here and reply to every single mention he'd be on here until christmas, he has way more to do than just forums and regardless information from the forums is always gathered and relayed. Most of the cases and claims of in game things are all identical and can be grouped into information so threads like this really aren't needed...
