    I've not seen many people post the images of the new starheads on here ?

    Any reason why ?

    Go find 'Fifa Faces' on Twitter - you're welcome !

    Plenty to be excited about.

    They normally ban for general beta chat here aswell so that’s a bit odd but 🤷🏼‍♂️ Maybe Ea are being progressive

    Is there a chance they scanned the Copa America? Possibly African Cup of Nations too? Not sure why they don't do every major tournament each year to be honest, so many players all in one country.

    Just imagine if they refreshed all the players in the prem every year. The game would feel so fresh.
  • This may make me look stupid but may I know what does "place holder" mean?

    It means that they will change the face of a player. A few days before the update, they change the appearance of that player for a bald guy with a generic face. That's a placeholder.

    Would be great news!
    I would be a bit shocked if Pogba, Lacazette and Giroud keep the same face in Fifa 20.

    EA just need to invest more money into getting players scanned. It's most likely going to be a problem for the next generation as well. Unless they can make their equipment more transportable.
  • How about the promoted la Liga teams will they get scanned faces ?

    Well it must be a 2016-2017 scan or something... and the custom hair is quite bad IMO. Would rather kept the very short hair he had. Plus hes getting a bit older ;)

    I don’t know who decides these face scans decision , all I know all fifa family in these blogs agrees Teams need to be scanned like how don’t you have at least fc Porto , benfica Lisbon not scanned ?? Would be amazing for career mode , how don’t you have Lyon , Monaco , nice and marseille fully scanned ?? How don’t you have Italian league scanned ?? I can keep going Ea likes ultimate team because of the money it brings , people that love career mode and don’t really play ultimate team will pay for a season pass to get dlc for staheads Make it damn happen ea

    No, as a general life rule telling people they need to spend more money on things is not a good way to encourage progress, and it isn’t correct in this instance regardless

    They just need to be smarter about how they go about creating starheads, as it is now their process is very splintered and inefficient .

    The poster you quoted was right, we have been pleading with them for years to set up at any of the yearly major competitions and perform a kind of mass scan session that would effectively pinpoint players from a wide variety of leagues and teams and if done correctly they would end up spending less money and producing a better output during these sessions than they do scanning 10 prem clubs at their training grounds or wherever this stuff takes place... apparently there was enough room in the budget for them to do this 40 times on 3 different continents for FIFA 19

    Think about it they’ve done the hard bit getting the UEFA license . According to another poster in this thread, there is an EA facility in Lyon, which leads me to believe there must be something of the sort in Berlin/London/etc. Why haven’t they gone and brought their equipment to each of their offices in cities where the CL is taking place, wait the required amount of time for all 4 clubs in a given group to come to that city for complete scan treatments, and continue like so until they have reached all 32 clubs? Nobody (relatively speaking) would be offended if they skipped over an APOEL or Slavia Prague or the likes either...

    Rinse and repeat for the World Cup/EL/club WC, and so on and so forth... Would this not make more sense than their current approach? The only justification for them to continue as they have is greed , indifference and incompetence. I laugh because eventually the day will come where Konami will beat them at their own tactics; in many ways they already have.

    I doubt that any team would be okay to go and get scanned during a Champions League away trip. They're not there for long and when they are they want to spend that time preparing for the game. World Cup might be possible since they have more time off, but still not sure if any team wants to do that during such an important competition. Club WC might be possible since it's games no one cares about, but not much to get done there either.

    If it turns out they’ve already scanned Serie A, and wait until next year again, will we let them get away with it?

    Thanks for the explanation. So basically it's a good thing right? I mean can we be sure that every bald generic player in the beta or whatever is a placeholder?
