FIFA 16: the fantasy football game

Yeah dude make a channel I 100% agree with you and anyone else that says otherwise either hasn’t played enough FIFA or doesn’t think critically enough about the shit that goes on around them.

I used to work as an intern for a startup fantasy football league and it was literally my job to go to message boards and rave about how awesome the site was, regardless of my own opinions. I’d venture to say there are people working for EA whose sole job is to refute the REAL scripting that is going on.

Yeah there are ‘shills’ in every large company, and I don’t doubt for a second that EA have them in here and other large forums on the internet.

Why do you think the big Youtubers get free Legends, invited to events, get early copies of games and get all their points back when they are reset for buying Fifa coins?

FIFA 16

Not saying they are shills per se, but EA know they have large followings and watching them pack a SIF Ronaldo or TotY Messi triggers that ‘well just maybe…’ response and they buy packs hoping to get one themselves.
Has any non Youtuber had all their points back when reset?

I wouldn’t put it past EA to only do this to big youtubers as they know that by doing that they will spend it all on packs, make more videos which attract more viewers, which ultimately leads to the rest of us donkeys (me included) spending money on packs and getting nothing at all.

That’s because the only way you could have concrete evidence is to look at the source code of the game, which we will never get to see.

All we have to go by is experiential evidence which, according to countless players, points to the fact that the game is not really fully in our control.

Some people are good enough to overcome it (ie hectic_jukez with his insane record) so its not really an issue for them. Or, some people just don’t care about the game enough Fifa 16 coins pc or play enough to see when this stuff happens in game — I assume those are a lot the people who are adamant that it doesn’t exist.

Your opponents in FIFA 16

over the course of opening over 8m in packs this FUT ive collected a mass amount of attribute cards and honestly the only real game to game advantage is to mentally psyche out your opponent when they see them. Ive done experiments using over 200+ +10 all stats gold attribute cards with all the managers so they’re actually +15 all stats. I’ll break it down my results for you, I made a Steroid Ronaldinho post a while back which touched on it briefly. All the experiments were done in online tournaments and online season.

Attribute cards used on one player work. They really do and if used on the right player it does give an advantage. However the game handicaps you if you use them every game. I played over 30 games with a steroid Ronaldinho and he would be downright awful for half of them. Rarely if ever did he actually feel like his new stats for more than 2 games in a row.

I then experimented using them with every player on the team at once. This is such a rookie mistake I see in tournaments. Pretty much every time i used them on the whole starting 11 I ended up losing your Fifa 16 coins. Missed passes and seemingly impossible to hold the ball. Everyone ran around the field erratically it felt like trying to control a wild horse. Idk why this experience is different for you when you face a team like this but i would venture to say its cause you just psyche yourself out. Also when your whole team is on attribute cards 9 times out of 10 you will be matched up with a team that also is using multiple attribute cards and/or has multiple IFs,TOTS,TOTYs. The most effective way to use attribute cards i’ve found is to use one of them on a starting 11 player and one on a sub.

The game for some reason doesnt register that there are 2 players with attribute cards so it doesnt handicap you as much. I’ve used them in games where i was on the verge of relegation/promotion and in some cup finals. They always come through.

FIFA 16

NOW if up until now you arent convinced or simply dont believe me that EA would handicap your players when you abuse attribute cards by using them on your whole team or on one player every game i’ll break it down for you easy using pure logic. Right now 87 rated Aguero is like 60k on PSN. +10 all gold attribute cards are like 1k each (idk if thats exact but lets say it is for arguments sake). TOTS Aguero is like 1.5m mil. A roided up +10/15 Aguero has better stats than a TOTS Aguero. Now lets assume that you will play 100 games with an Aguero. The cost of an 87 roided up Aguero for 100 games will run you 160k Fifa coins. Thats an average cost of 1.6k per game. A regular TOTS Aguero would run you 1.5m or an average of 15k per game. Now if attribute cards really were OP as you think they are dont you think everyone would have caught on by now and stopped buying expensive players when they simply could have just bought their regular versions plus attribute cards?

There is a reason why people dont do this and its because it doesnt work. And its because EA doesnt want it to work because if people suddenly found a loophole in the system by using attribute cards then no one would bother trying to open packs anymore for the super rare ultra good players which would in turn lose them money. I know a lot of people dont believe EA handicaps the game in any way but based on my experiments using 200+ attribute cards at least related to attribute cards they definitely do handicap and given the frequency of how often attribute cards are in packs they should be handicapping if theyre abused. I encourage everyone who is skeptical to try it out themselves.

TL;DR: Its all in your head. A team of all roided up cards is easy pickings, the game will most likely work in your favor. It wouldnt make sense for EA to let attribute cards work every game or be abused because then people would simply buy regular player and cheap attribute cards instead of splurging on high rated and special players.

A ridiculous flagrant foul of FIFA 16

I try to play as you described it against the computer but I just cannot score. Most of my games end 0-0 at World Class and above difficulties.

Defending is not really a problem but scoring is just impossible:
Playing possession style, there will always be a time where one of your players just makes an awful pass for no reason and the ball just goes back to the CPU.

Shielding the ball seems useless even with physical players. When I do it most of the time the CPU players just do a slide tackle behind my back with no foul being called while it looks like a ridiculous flagrant foul 😦
When I finally find a good shooting angle in the box, the CPU magically manages to tackle the ball at the very last moment 90% of the time.

If I have a chance to not be tackled by a defender just after getting a lot of Fifa coins, the goalkeeper is just a wall and will stop every shot. I can only score if I am 1v1 but that just never happens.

And if I’ve read your possession story correctly, you pass the ball around in defence for ages until even a computer can’t handle your shit anymore and it gets mad?
No offence friend, but I cannot imagine how this is at all a fun way to play.
In fact, the only time I play against a computer in a year is when I get the demo. I like the unpredictability of a human opponent.

FIFA 16

The computer is less repetitive than the constant lob through balls that seem to be a thing online (presumably this becomes less of a thing if I were in a higher division). And, I mean, I can’t imagine how the constant lobbed through balls is at all a fun way to play whereas possession as described by the OP sounds pretty fun so different strokes for different folks.

I try this but I just cant beat world class. i can have 70% possession in a game but i can’t win. The CPU just gets into my half and I can’t take the ball off them. I don’t run at them, I contain and try to get in the way off their passes but they seem to find their players so easily. They just walk through my defence and score

This is what I’ve been doing too, and I find it much more fun than playing online (due to poor connections, or exploitative opponent play). I haven’t won Div 1 yet because you have to win all 10 games, but I can survive ok. The main issue for me is defending. I find it very hard to get the ball off the opposition on World Class/Legendary, and often have to stick bodies in the box and hope their attack eventually breaks down. I suppose a well-timed slide tackle might do it, but I tend not to get Fifa 16 coins android. I do tend to close off crosses, which results in them passing it towards the centre. Perhaps I should just let them cross, as you suggest.
