  • I thought it was better in 15 but have seen major fixture congestion twice in 16 in the first season now. Admittedly I'm part to blame for the latest one, it being caused by failure to beat Swansea in the FA Cup quarters but it is a pain when the sq…
  • (Quote) Clearly this is EA's attitude, although there is of course the money they are making from title sales. A title that they only have to tweak year on year to make their annual income while others create a complete game from scratch for the sa…
  • I hope they grow because most of them seem to be shorter than 5'6! I did find a beast of a CDM the other day at 6'6, aged about 16!
  • I thought they had changed this (was it ever carried over even before 15?) but it's a proportion of the end of season fund not necessarily the whole amount.
  • Confederations Cup was in 15 so I presume it's been carried forward to 16. Never seen the Club World Cup but there is the UEFA Super Cup.
  • Generally when I get a player complaining of being homesick they will sign a new contract put in front of them. Fair enough, some players will angle for a better deal IRL but the homesick reason is tired especially when the player has been with the …
  • This was a bug in the Beta but I've not had any dubious ones thus far in the actual game so not sure if it was fixed or still bugged. Was annoying as original shot was definitely on target when I had this.
  • Ahh, I misunderstood you then, I only know about the option to play the next RL fixture of your favourite team. The only thing I can think of that you might mean was a match for bonus XP and coins that I have seen on iPad version of FIFA but not see…
  • I'm not disappointed by the addition of player training, it's a decent new feature but I agree it could be taken further to team training and definitely set piece training. Team training could see things like the chemistry factor of FUT brought into…
  • Oh yeah, another reason why I gave up player career and why player/manager mode needs to be brought back. Not being able to do half the achievements ever makes the whole concept pointless. Do they still have the unlock that requires more achievemen…
  • Did you just get lucky with that player's growth? I signed a number of players in 15 in this way and they normally arrived a better rating than what I signed them at. Not 10 points as these were normally already highly rated players, but often saw a…
  • As above, rematch unlocked ok for me. Check at end of match whether it's available and you already unlocked and forgot? Is the live match a seasons thing? I don't play seasons but I do get the option of playing the upcoming real-life fixture if tha…
  • (Quote) Correct! And for some reason the managers don't think you can adapt position even slightly. Had the same in 15, my player was a RM but England played with RCMs or RWs at the time so no dice. Never got called up even to point I was about 90 …
  • Unless they've changed it this year, the amount is the same regardless of unlock level in the catalogue.
  • Some good options but all quite small things EA could implement, or just reinstate from what they've had in other titles in the past. Speaking of which, the 1 major thing I'd like changed is player/manager mode brought back as it's the best of both …
  • Check what default formation Canada use and whether your position fits that. International managers on FIFA tend to rigidly stick to players that fit their formation regardless of talent. One of the reasons I gave up player career in 15.
  • (Quote) Ah thanks, that makes sense as I didn't have any free slots for global transfer scouts when I got in the game. I mistakenly assumed it would only be a one-off youth player scout but that's a better bonus.
  • You get a few XP points too but no bonus training for the player. Would be good if it was as I'll soon get bored and skip straight to the match like in 15.
  • (Quote) Cheers, thought it must have worked as the figure in beta was only about £40m and £90m is high compared to previous titles. Was glad to read that they've changed funds so some gets carried over between seasons - finally! Not sure what happ…
  • I skipped the demo match but had both the bonuses show up when I started new career however the free scout didn't work. Not sure if the extra transfer fund worked but I think it did as I had £90m (Chelsea).
  • Pretty much agree with all of that. My other 2 bugbears that have seen me give up BeAPro since 15 are that some achievements are either ridiculous or unattainable as they can't be done in your position; and that the manager is an idiot, allowing all…
  • I definitely noticed the change in how teammates play depending on what difficulty you have set a couple of FIFA titles ago and ended up on legendary for 15, a massive difference to Pro. They use more skill moves, better passing, better movement and…
  • Olympic Stadium is not in Stadiums list so I would say no, they don't. Presumably it'll be added in FIFA 17...
  • Sliders are in settings menu. Injuries did annoy me in 15, even with frequency turned down and severity turned down a lot i still got a fair few 4 month lay offs so in the end I set both to 0. Only affects gameplay though so you can still get the tr…
  • What player are you looking at? If they are on loan at their current club or possibly recently transferred then I don't think the options to transfer are available.
  • I'm not sure the likelihood of getting an A or F actually changes with difficulty level when simming so I would go for gold when taking that option. Also I think an F on gold is probably better than a C/D or lower on bronze for development. At the m…
  • I think they appear at the start of a calendar month, not sure exactly when they disappear - maybe start of next month or after you've been through the report once? I always have a scan through the squad report after I get the email about update on …
  • One of the things that made me give up on player career in 15 - I never got picked for country because my position didn't fit their formation. Seems far too regimented - positions / formations. Best players should surely get picked when they can be …
