    I would personally like to see the additions of competitions in pro clubs. I understand that there is Cup where you compete in a tournament setting to win a cup but what do you get other than progression towards a five star team (don't get me started on how, it changes every time). I feel that there should be tournaments that allow for 11v11 gameplay where winning them count towards progression on your player. In addition I think that they need to add all the names that they have in ultimate team and kick off into proclubs. I don't understand how someone like Shinji Kagawa can be on the cover of the game (in Japan), show up multiple times in the games menus, and have his name said correctly in the other game modes, not have his name as an option in pro clubs.

    Wow really not enough money I here some saying...... PS4 Sales for Fifa 16 were 6.96 million units times US$50 should be around 350 million dollar....lets say these sales are identical or close to one another each year that would bring EA a nice revenue just for selling the game....now fut is an additional money maker.......but pro clubs could be an additional money maker too. It just needs some great ideas behind it as mentioned in here. Also imagine a proper E-Game Pro Club League with real Sponsors and competitions like Euro, World Cup, Copa America and so on.... all the endless possibilities already mentioned in here..... Come on EA do it :smiley:

    EA don't make 100% on game sales. I think its something like 10$ per game sold to a store.

    With the Xbox Arena announced last night and Fifa being part of it, I could see Clubs becoming a big part of that, or they make it all about UT, as per.

    Anyone who plays Pro clubs primarily, should be saying so in this thread. If it's the most popular thread in this section, there's more chance of them seeing/hearing about it ?

    Pro clubs is certainly not dead to me, far from it. We still play most nights of the week. One thing I really hate is the troll heads people use, its not funny and everyone who edits there pro to look that ugly is dumb as heck.

    I wish the accomplishment system was revamped like everyone else has said and the second wind trait needs reworked. You still should get a certain amount of stamina boost even if your winning imo. Also id like the ai player names to stay the same each match or at least each season as you progess through the divisions. So you can build up a bit of camaraderie with members of your club and there stats and goals count as well.

    Few other things id like to see are boots and accessories updated regular, better matchmaking so it doesnt pair us up with teams in turkey for eg when were all in uk. And better filtering on team names, ive seen some really dodgy team names including stuff like isis and jimmy saville.

    I'll say again what i said on another thread...

    First of all, i need to say that i'm a big fan of Pro Clubs.
    So, i have some suggestions and improvements about Pro Clubs ONLINE MODE too... I really hope the devs or the specialists of this game gonna look into this thread AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.


    1. I would like the goalkeepers to be as amazing as they used to be back in Fifa 13.
    2. I would like EA to bring back the 11vs11 feature in Drop-In matches, as we used to have in Fifa 13 as well. Personally, i had a lot of fun there. Now, if someone wants to play 11vs11, he is forced to join a club... I believe that there are a lot of players who play Pro Clubs, and only want to play drop-in matches, as they enjoy being free agents and not depending on some clubs.
    5vs5 in FIFA 16 drop-ins was and is very boring if you ask me, as there is no fun at all... especially when 3-4, or all 5 of the opponents RAGE quit during the match... Besides, more bots (CPU) = Less fun.
    3. Give us the chance to play Pro Clubs on different weather... Sunny, Rainy, Snowy...
    4. Last and most important, bring back the "auto"-sliding tackle mode... If there are noobs or ego teamplayers on our side who never pass the ball, we should be able to slide tackle them, as we used to do back in FIFA 13. I know that this wouldn't be realistic, but trust me, we really need it...!!!

    I really hope some of these will come true.

    P.S.: And yes, i'm a big fan of FIFA 13. :smiley:

    Thank you in advance.
  • 11vs11 pro clubs is the most promising thing about FIFA. They could make so much money from this, big cash prizes and could become a huge esport as big as LoL/CoD/CS and all the others.

    I have been playing competitive 11 man since fifa11, and it is the most intense, fun game mode ever.

    11 man clubs is very small but still world wide. There are probably around 3/4k people playing it which is nothing compared to the sales of FIFA and UT users. To help you get a feel of what I am playing every night. Check out some vids.

    My CB compilation:



    My 11 man team compilation:



    when you are playing 11vs11 it is a simulation of real football, tight close games, everyone gets to know each other in terms of teams, people find out certain players weaknesses and work out strategies on how to defend that certain player when you face them next. It is a community but a small one with so much potential if EA could open their eyes and invest money.

    sites like www.the-vfl.com offer a platform for new players to start off. Simulated league with 100% realism. Yes you have to commit a lot of time to the site, but it is worth it and its not like any other gaming experience out there.

    My hope for FIFA17 for clubs....is like every other year that is hoping it hasn't been taking out. With Co-op skill games and this Alex Hunter STORY MODE RUBBISH they would of had to make space somewhere.

    The only reason I buy fifa is to play Pro Club with friends.

    Pro Club is just too fun to play with friends (at least 4-8 friends) together in the same team.

    Ah yeah just seen someone designed it on twitter lol, I heard a rumor about 5v5 maybe training mode or like fifa street, would be good to build team chemistry. Doubt it though, but I think there will be Be a Manager in Pro clubs as Managers have been confirmed. The manager can keep giving instructions to the team throughout the game while watching the whole play, something like that could be cool.

    This one from wishlist for FIFA 13, I'll edit this if something from this is fixed:
    Graphics are not an issue in quality football game, so I wont bother.
    Let’s get to the small things, yet pure improvement w/o big work time. Things, that could be even in this release update.
    As my favourite and only mode is Virtual Pro, i’ll put my 5 cents into discussion:

    let’s start with:

    I. Interface
    – function to broadcast to all club members message trough Origin
    Now captain needs to message everyone one-by-one via firendlist.

    – UTF-8 Encoding for support native characters

    Roster in Club, could use Gameface as portraits.
    Also, not making game-face local – at least have an option to download friend’s faces if not everyone you meet in game.

    – Custom tactics
    Own formations, set-piece takers etc. These preparations should be from menu before the game, not in progress.

    – Origin integration with website
    And get that database working properly already. It never lists club members and works damn slow.

    II. Customisation
    – Possibility to upload own club logo once a week
    And way more would be great also – custom shirts, dedicated player numbers(!).

    III. Game
    – Ability to spectate matches!
    For live (or not live) broadcast and commentary. For leagues and tournaments. Huge potential here. With camera and replay controls.

    – Detailed match logs for Virtual Club matches
    For custom league organisation. Captains could have an option to tick (just like in 1v1 duels) to let this match be forwarded to e-mails. Those log files could be subject of parse engine and transferred to league database. Would include half and final match stats and chronological event log. http://vp-arena.net does this now, but of course it depends on EA's website that is broken now.
    Also, external replay files would be great.

    – Setup custom game rules
    Let others organise matches within their own concept. Custom sliders, match length etc.

    – Let owner select which players can start club ranked matches and be a captain in these.
    Now every member can start ranked online club match. Players which are on trial period can start their own matches and just ruin the name of club. Supervising is important for serious clubs that get bigger.

    – Multiplayer Club Arena
    To practice set-pieces and matches within club. To try out plays and tactics.

    When player gets red card, he’s meant to leave game. When you play Virtual Pro mode, you’re meant to play your star, not the whole team. That’s the point of this mode.
    wow they added this, but of course with annoying text blocking some of the screen all the time.

    – Add bench
    Let players enter the game, whilst in-progress and wait and watch on bench. Let captain switch players if they have to.

    And last, but not least.

    – Dedicated server/stadiums
    Just a public place, where matches take place and everyone can hop in any time. Instead of that AWFUL peer-2-peer matchfinder. With long matches and everyone from bench being able to hop and replace a AI bot.

    make the match making work better, we dont want to play with rank 1-10 when we are rank 600…. :/

    Of course these are only small part of what community has been wanting from the first match of Pro Clubs... :pensive: This list is from FIFA13 wishlist :dizzy:

    Also found this excellent wishlist:
    Pro Clubs, arguably one of the best mode in the game, and one of the most original ones, is still played by a lot of people like me who totally love the game mode. It offers the most competitive gameplay you can find in FIFA, yet EA doesn't seem to care about it, as seen in the latest games it was never improved except for new accessories and interface. It was even removed from older consoles.
    I've decided to make a detailed wishlist for next FIFAs hoping someone of EA decides to listen to me and many other fans and finally upgrade Pro Clubs. There are still hopes for FIFA 16, but I'm not expecting many changes to be honest.


    MOST IMPORTANT:
    Allow us to play with up to 3 guests from the SAME console, using another account! PLEASE, I see no reason why I can't play with my brother/friends on the same PS4 while having a lot of fun. Not even that difficult to implement.

    Accomplishments:
    Revamp Pro Upgrade system, ex. an XP system. If Accomplishments are kept, change them. Also allow us to play skill games with our Pro, and would be cool if we could improve some stats by completing them. Remove stat bonuses from EA Catalogue, there's no reason to keep them, I would rather have more ways to improve my Pro. Add Pro training arena, with possibility to try out tactics and set-pieces for Free Kicks and Corners.

    Club customization:
    Allow us to create custom Kits and badges like in Creation Centre. This would dramatically increase immersion.
    Also a new create-a-stadium feature would be really awesome.

    Virtual Pro:
    Every Pro should play differently and be unique.
    Add new haircuts, new facial hair, new traits, new dribbling styles, option to choose workrates so our players play better when using "ANY" and player attitude: every player has his own personality that you can unlock/choose. Add option to choose muscularity with sliders, like bigger chest/biceps etc...
    Add new Corner stances, also new FK stances would be cool.
    Also, balance Pros out, because as of FIFA 15, almost everyone plays with CAM or ST Finisher because those give better stats, and also 173cm and 81kg are the best ways to play. Bring back old system, the one still used for player career mode.

    CPU:
    When playing Pro Clubs, offline members or members not playing still play as AI in their position if it's not taken by a real player.
    Real players can join mid-match from the bench, but another real player has to go. When taken out, the players can spectate the match.

    New Traits:
    New traits system, can choose only 1 trait for category except for Personality.
    Old traits are still there, but increase number of traits you can use to 10.
    -Dead ball-
    Cold-Blooded: Increases Penalties stats.
    FK Specialist: Increases FK accuracy.
    Corner kick Specialist: Increases accuracy and power from corner kicks.
    -First Touch-
    1-2: Increases first touch passes accuracy.
    Scorer: Increases positioning and first touch shots power and accuracy.
    Glue: Increases ball control and first touch when receiving ball.
    -Speciality-
    Tackler: Increases aggression, standing tackes and slide tackles.
    Tactician: Increases marking and interceptions.
    Header: Increases strength, elevation and heading accuracy.
    Shadow: Increases agility and balance.
    Playmaker: Increases passing stats and vision, CPU does more runs when having the ball, decreases shooting stats.
    Bomber: Increases shooting stats power and accuracy, decreases passing stats.
    -Personality-
    Avoids using weaker foot: Never uses weak foot, prefers to use the outside of stronger foot instead. Increases outside of foot shoots power and accuracy.
    Diver: The player dives more often trying to earn Penalties and FKs.
    Tireless: Maximum energy during last 10 minutes of a match.
    Engine: Increases stamina and locks to High/High workrates. Difficult to injury.
    Selfish: Increases dribbling and ball control but decreases all passing stats. CPU passes the ball less often when calling for it.
    Curve: Gives more curl to finesse shoots.
    Sniper: Increases shoots dip.
    Warrior: Increases reactions and decreases time to get off the ground.

    Player Career:
    BRING BACK Player Manager!
    Allow to start from the bench and get on the pitch later.
    Add ability to be chosen as the team captain's after some years or incredible performances that have led the team to win cups or championship.
    The club where you play should engage more players/constantly trying to improve the team.
    Allow to change position/learn new positions. This way we can unlock more accomplishments.

    General:
    Captain gets the armband, not the CPU.
    Cup games counting towards Pro's personal club stats. Stats for every club are saved so if I leave a club and then return my stats are still there.
    Change match ratings. As of now, playing an horrible match but scoring a goal in the end guarantees you a 9.0+ match rating, while if a defender gets a clean sheet and plays well just gets 7.0.
    On Drop-In, only GKs should be able to choose GK position. This is to avoid having ❤️❤️❤️❤️ GKs just because the player couldn't go in his preferred position.
    Captains on Drop-In matches shouldn't be able edit formation or line-up.
    Remove Park the Bus from Pro Clubs, or nerf it.

    Heres couple of fixes they should have added years ago:
    -In Physical screen you cannot see your Strenght, because it is hidden in the last line.
    -You cannot see your Weak Foot stars anywhere.

    yes this game mode has the greatest potential. Nothing better than a game of 22 players without any AI

    I am big fan of pro club but i am just strongly against 11vs11 for drop in.
    It was just the worst experience i ve ever had.
    10 player + goalkeeper was chasing the ball. No one stay at their position, ıt was like headless chickens running all around.
    The beginning of pro club (if EA did not remove the mod) will be painful again. 5.8 CAM blue afros everywhere.
    No one pass, everyone tries to complete all position achievement in 1 match.
    If game mechanic let, they will cross the ball, run like flash to head their own cross and turn to goalkeeper in nano second to save the ball they hit with head.

    @ertk0 I strongly disagree.
    Like i said, it's way more fun for the majority of the players (and especially for the new players that just joined the game) to play 11vs11 in drop ins for a lot of reasons. Of course no one stays always at their position, but from my experience, and having played a looooot of drop in matches in fifa13, 11vs11 is wayyyy more enjoyable than 5vs5. I don't know if anyone else agrees, but personally, this was my best experience i ever had in Fifa since 1999....
    Besides, there are a lot of issues when you are playing 5vs5.
    First of all, you are facing a lot of CPU bots, which is quite hard to defend them or even dribble through them, as they can guess all your movements.
    Second of all, it's more likely for the match to end early, as there is a high possibility that all 5 opponents rage quit during the match if they are losing. Hence, the number of opponents is low.
    And trust me, it's way more annoying when there are like 8-10 people in a drop in, but there are still ego and noob players who never pass the ball during the whole match. At least back in fifa13, we could slide tackle them if they were on the same side with you... Now, we can't even do that.

    Improving the AI/scripting should be the first thing on everyone's list. Anyone who's played Pro Clubs for a length of time will tell you how bad the AI decision making is. No doubt someone will jump in and say "you should have someone play as 'Any'"; which masks over an inherent problem with the AI itself. Don't blame other players for not using 'Any', it's not the player's fault that the AI is reliably bad. This is a fault with a broken game.

    The other thing people need to recognise is that this is the same AI when you play head-to-head/FUT only that the problem is less recognisable because you can control all the players on the pitch. Scripting is in the game to fool FUT players into thinking they need to improve the squad and EA hope you will invest money in packs. Unfortunately, Fifa 16 was the worst, in terms of AI. Why should I lose a game because my goalkeeper palms a save directly to the feet of the opposition? Why should I lose a game because my 6'2" defender can't win a header against a 5'1" attacker? Why are the defenders I'm not using run away from the ball and leave gaps?

    Y'all really should making more noise about this kind of thing. New haircuts, badges etc. are things way down the list. Please fix your broken game.

    I'm holding on to hope that the new "story" mode has helped improving the "Pro" modes but I fear nothing will change.

    NEW THINGS I WANT IN PRO CLUBS 17

    • FULL control of my pro club. Let me create and design my kit. Let me name/create my players.
    • Online transfer market. Buy AI players and bid for other human players.
    • Make winning mean something. At the moment there no point winning in pro clubs. It does NOTHING when you win a title or climb a division. Have the top teams in each division be entered into a weekly tournament like the every 2 week cup.
    • Our players get better with wins. AI players agin EXP with each victory.
    • PSN/XBOX MP micro transactions. Use real world money to buy VANITY items like tattoos , head gear, kit designs etc.

    Id love for any EA dev to tell me a single reason none of the above will work. They are just not seeing the obvious.

    EA hire me , ill make you millions on FIFA 18

    AI players are just as important as your VP, I would like to see the same set of players that you can swap and change whose attributes increase from the stuff they do so essentially the whole Club gets better so an 89 ST can't just long shot your GK as your GK's stats would of increased. The way you and your club plays will have a significant influence on your clubs AI players stats.

    For Public Games non GK players should not be allowed to play in goal.
    You should have the option to Kick after an own goal needing maybe 2 votes for it to happen
    11 V 11
    similar rated players 75 - 81, 82+ should be matched with each other. Like a Beginners room

    VP is very much heightist, as a result everybody is 5'8 and as light as possible

    Good Ideas! another one would be to have a training mode so that you and your club could train as a team before jumoing into play or trying a player out before he sucks on the field

    11vs11 Pro-Ranked matches have been 1000 times more fun than the 5vs5 crap we have to endure now.

    I played 300+ matches in FIFA13, with FIFA 15 & 16 I haven´t even played 100 in total.


    What they HAVE to do is:

    -GK´s must not be allowed to choose any other position and DEF/MID/FW players must not choose GK
    -disable the "call" button for every player.
    -reduce countdowns to 1 minute (choosing side) and 10 seconds (choosing position)

    You're probably talking about when drop ins were capable of being 11v11. If you play in an actual team with a setup and tactics, it's incredibly fun. As I said earlier, I'm apart of the Australia iFVPA squad on PS4 who plays against other nations. Best game mode in the game

    As i said i am against for 11vs11 for drop in matches, not for ranked ones.

    As long as the society of the game is very bad and as you need to complete drop in to get some achievements, the lesser in drop in matches the better.

    Do you ever played pro club at the first months of Fifa after release? 10 player + GK smashing the pass button, clicking 1000 times in a second from every position of the pitch. Its like 11 player arms is up like frozen calling for the ball non stop. Everyone wanna be hero.

    At least at 5vs5, you can touch the ball and do some passy game with CPU if others are ❤️❤️❤️❤️.
