    Is Ancelotti's face new, or is it just the old one?

    Also this thing of the faces of the Managers ... I'm happy for Ancelotti .... and then they created Conte in the past of Inter and they don't insert his face ... Ranieri same thing .. they have to improve in this aspect .. now the video game player is more demanding

    Ziyech to Chelsea sadly.. However, just one of the benefits EA scan teams like Ajax and Benfica. Hakim will join Chelsea with a decent starhead.

    I've always said that EA should regularly scan Ajax, PSV, Benfica, Porto, Sporting and maybe a couple more clubs with great academies and you have half the up and coming talents already scanned before they make their moves to the top leagues. Kudos to EA for doing at least Ajax and Benfica this year.

    You're right but Neres is missing one of the best talents and Tagliafico ..... EASports has to improve on the amount of face creation, I personally play with an important team or a single important player with a generic face I feel like not to play. see Haaland, Akanji of Dortmund or Ansu Fati, De Jong, Arthur of Barcelona .. we hope with the next update to see some more faces

    you can hardly put it on ea that tagliafico and neres did not get scanned, they were not back yet from international duty. and 'scans' is the way ea have chosen to go moving forwards. which is why they've built several new capture rigs already.


    it is a massive undertaking in the first place to handle logistics to where a football club make their squads avaliable. due to the absurd amount of games your average club from a top 5 league play per year. needless to say when these sort of things get scheduled they try and make sure as many players as possible are able to attend. since it is a very laboring task.

    Thats the problem, EA's "Chosen" way of doing Star Heads is wrong. Hence generic faces for Bruno Fernandes, Frenkie De Jong, Erling Håland etc.. They need to mix it up!! Adding a couple of customs every time they add new scans is how it should go.. Whats 2 or 3 customs!? But they added one for Lautaro so as usual EA baffle me..

    P.S. It's also okay saying Neres & Tagliafico were missing from the scan session, then add custom faces for them!! Why add an incomplete team???

    no, it's not 'wrong' fernandes will be in fifa 21, as will håland. the barcelona thing is due to licensing but they are apparently working on ways around that.

    'adding a couple of customs' the difficult part isn't making a face texture or even the hair, it's the fact they need to create a 3d model to fit it onto.

    that's why tons of the custom faces you see made by users look like a pile of ❤️❤️❤️❤️, because for every single player that does not currently have a 'scan' face in fifa, they have to find a 'mesh' from another scanned player that have a matching facial structure as the player they want to create.

    and 'ea' as a publicly traded company can't just start using community assets, since there are licensing laws prohibiting that.



    and they did add several customs already this year, just like they made several new ones for fifa 20's launch.

    the art team is the smallest on the entire fifa team, they do add customs regularly, it so just happens they did the likes of skriniar and martinez from inter this year, probably cause neres and tagliafico are still at ajax and them being a partner team they get scanned yearly.


    essentially for every '1' custom they make from scratch they can probably process 10+ faces where the capture rig have already made most of the assets needed. not to mention that same art team are also the people that create the assets for kits, gloves, balls, and boots.


    ''b-b-b-b-b-b-but pes'' is the most tired argument in the book. you ever seen the 3d mesh for a pes boot? yikes.

    All true what you say but EASports must keep up with the scans of the faces ... it is one of the components that make the game more realistic in addition to the gameplay the choirs the details of the single stadium .. make it more fascinating as well as the teams in the tunnel ... I hope that already in FIFA 20 at least one of these things will manage to make more faces at least of the most important teams

    Pirlo face is brilliant in PES, was excited when I saw that FIFA we're getting Pirlo as an icon... Until I saw his awful custom face :'(

    Wish there was an icon team for offline, I know it's doubtful I'll ever get both online but least you can download the legends in PES for offline.

    that is what they are doing? as i said they built two new capture rigs last fall (after fifa20 shipped) and are adding atleast one more in 2020. they aren't building those to decorate the office with them.

    what they (as in the people above the fifa team, actual ea board people) have decided though is that capturing through scanning is how they want to build upon things for the coming generation of games.

    if it was up to the 'fifa' team themselves to decide wichanwoo (the guy who's photos iv'e posted numerous times in this thread) would have been hired a long time ago. several of the people on the fifa team use his faces at home and around the office they are big fans of his work.

    to the point of where they have ''competitions'' where they'll put his custom work alongside a ea scan and people in the office guess which is which.

    Columbus got scanned for sure because they posted a pic of Zelarayán getting scanned on their instagram. Don't know about the other two clubs but it's probably true.

    Some scanned/custom faces will return with the Libertadores DLC. The ones that come to mind right now are Dani Alves (Sao Paulo), Filipe Luís (Flamengo), Emmanuel Adebayor (Olimpia) and Keisuke Honda (Botafogo).
    Nicolás Domingo was possibly scanned while he was at Independiente, but he recently left to Olimpia.

    New rule introduced from last season that ended it from preventing players from playing for a new team. Largely associated with Coutinho's transfer to Barcelona.

    Fifa 21 most likely, even though they're probably sat on a scan and there is nothing stopping them making a custom either..

    EA can still scan Man Utd due to the PL deal. As can they update Old Trafford. Confirmed by Corey. No excuses...

    You say that but who have they updated in the last couple of years? And Barcelona they have the La Liga licence for but they haven't scanned a Barca player in ages (hence people like Arthur being generic still). So I wonder if something does prevent them from scanning the teams in exclusive deals, even if they're allowed to have them in the game

    Last year they added/updated Chong, Gomes, Lindelof, Lingard, Pogba. Hamilton.
    This year: Dalot, De Gea, Fred, Shaw (plus Lukaku and Sanchez)

    In fairness, that's better than some other PL teams.

    Doesn't say a whole lot though since United only went to PES this summer and we haven't had any scans done since then that we know of. Arsenal is the real proof that PL works differently. They have been PES partners for years and are still getting a few EA scans per year.
