    I do understand your explanation thanks . But don't you think an overhaul is eminent during the pandemic when they can't do any physical scans ? My point is simple , creating or importing some customs is hundred time relevant than seeing generic Neres or Fati dancing with their pack opening scenes . I have nothing to say against FUT . But yes , 2018 world cup host Russia has a very few starhead in the game ( I know Russian league is PES exclusive , but they could have put more scans in 2018) France won the cup , and their league in game is in a pathetic stage .

    no, i don't because nobody could have forseen this was going to happen. ea would not have built an additional number of rigs and hired additional manpower to field more scan teams if they somehow could have seen covid-19 being just around the corner. unfortunetly though that's just how the chips have fallen, and this isn't a 'exclusive' thing for ea as a company the delays in the videogame sphere this year are going to be absolutly nuts i would not be surprised if 'fifa22' ends up being some sort of partial 'update' thing simply because the circumstances these teams are working under means that they don't have access at all to alot of the tools they need to create.

    what i will say though is that for fifa 23 (assuming covid-19 is not a thing anymore) we are really going to see the benifits of these investments ea have made, and people can feel free to be as pesimistic as they feel like here, but i promise you these rigs are not cheap, nor is hiring personel to handle them so ea would not have spent all this money building them if their intention weren't to use them.

    I hope so ! Well , any idea why after every title and squad update we have to create a new career mode ? Some problem in Frostbite engine for this ?

    Also one thing to ask if they can put custom face for Allan so nicely , why not trying some more customs ???

    ea did not make that custom face, the studio that makes fifa online made it. yeah there is cross-overs where the two studios have used each others assets, but they are two separate entities entirely.

    furthermore the people who edit and prep the raw maps and meshes for these faces is the same people that also creates , edit and preps the raw maps and meshes for kits,gloves,boots,balls and every other graphical related thing. and at this stage (give this is a 9 month dev cycle) alot of the people from that art team will have moved on to prepping for fifa 22.

    Marco Reus needs an update. His current starhead is from FIFA 17 - almost 6 years old.

    FIFA 17:
    6-E2-D5-A6-D-A6-D4-432-F-AA09-F87-CED9-C90-AC.jpg

    Reus has been scanned for FIFA 20 as evidenced by the Bundesliga trailer but not updated - Why??

    FIFA 20 - scanned but not updated
    0-EEDE915-EF05-4-C6-C-9-AC4-2-A82-F00-A2-E69.jpg

    Firmino has been updated 2x in the same period but not Reus.

    Time for an update EA?

    he has not really warrented one? for one he's been injured for large portions of the season, and as for the rest he's kept a similar haircut throughout and the scan he got in fifa 17 was done at vancouver hq so the quality of the scan has been made with the same equipment the scan rigs are fitted with currently.

    ^ oh and hey look, back to the same hairstyle he had 17-18-19 again. iv'e been watching the kid since he was 19. i know my reus, trust on that.

    Simple - If there’s a new scan then he should be updated.

    Well for 1 he should get his new tattoos added and 2 I’m yet to see a old scan from the last 2+ years that looks as good as the scans from the last 12 months.

    You don’t need to read in to it so much.

    If there’s a new scan available then EA should update

    i'm not reading anything into anything, i am simply stating that what you are saying does not make any sort of sense. the face capturing of reus was done on location in vancouver using the same equipment the current rigs are fitted with.

    you then switch gears to his 'ink' ? they cannot just 'update' that, they'd need permission from the artist that made it depending on what it is that is missing, that is why these scan rigs are not fitted to capture 'bodies' in general. it is face capturing, it is not a 'full body scanner'

    the reason some players have their body ink is because the sessions will have been done on location in vancouver. or because it's something embarassingly simple like the 'bands' dybala has or 'penandes' ink that anyone who's taken a base course in photoshop can knockout during their lunchbreak.

    stop trying to backpeddle, you were the one with your chest out talking about 'they should do this, and they should do that'

    and i already know what's missing, i am asking you though. what is missing on that sleeve of his. the other arm is irrelevant, because he did the rose and clock after the latest scan session took place. i want you to tell me what is missing on that sleeve side instead. and forget about the upper part of the tricep and shoulder area because ea nor pes scan those anyways since the kit sleeve will cover it. (you know since it's a football game)

    so let's hear it for the boy one more time here.

    I hope it's a FULL league treatment. That's all that's missing to make me never buy Fifa again. No matter what league it is.. Serie A? Ligue 1? Eredivisie? Master League in a league with Full treatment. Wow..

    full treatment how? they gonna fly 20x25man to japan to scan them? only reason they've been able to do what they have this generation is because of the nature of foxengine, it's 'ue' now meaning they won't be able to use the same methods they have in the past at all.

    the contracts with staramba won't help em either, because they'll have as little access to the clubs due to covid-19 as the in-house scan teams at ea. they've been able to cut corners because of how kojima constructed foxengine. that's over with now, they'll be forced to sculpt 3d models now.

    Where did did you read this? I have tried Google and Twitter and I cannot find any reference to it. Baring in mind they have Manchester United, Arsenal, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Roma and now Lazio as partners, I am wondering what is left. I would think Ajax, PSG, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid (already disproved above) and Atletico de Madrid would be the only "massive teams" they could partner with that would cause EA big issues (baring in mind we know England is safe due to the current deal, as are the Milans and the Bundesliga).

    So its either one of those clubs or Ligue 1, Serie A, La Liga treatment or as the contract is up it could well be the Champions League and Europa League are back off to PES...

    Someone can explain how Juninho Bacuna got a face scan, at least after so many years... Did you add Diakhaby?
    EA come on, be consistent, once you add scans of faces from long-ago scans, it means that you have these faces in stock... Add more!!! Stop already doing do not understand what, and do not develop the realism of the game! You look at these shared faces and it feels like you're still playing the game on PlayStation 1

    Personally I'd rather they didn't add out of date scans at all.

    Please give us some solution from FIFA 22 onwards so that existing career mode saves become compatible with new title or squad update. We , those who play only career mode can finally start playing from Feb-March when all patch/update rolling are over . So we play for 5-6 months and pay full price for a game . Please please do us a favour from next version onwards !

    If I was more cynical I’d say it’s a ploy by EA to try and get us career mode players to ‘try out FUT’ while we wait for the game to be ready for us to start a career mode. I’m sure it’s not. But this is the second year in a row that I won’t have started a career mode properly until after the January transfer window shuts. I don’t think I even did start one properly on Fifa 20.

    Those who play FUT it's their choices . For me , playing CR7 with Eusebio or Gullit with Rashford in ultimate team is absolute joke 🤣 no realism in that ! Yes , it will be nice of EA if they can unlock the icon players in career mode to be used as coach .
