FIFA 15 Ultimate Team market changes: EA believe it’s good for game

Some gamers may think, “Thank God, I’ve been waiting months for that.” And then there are times when a developer makes a change that causes you to have an aneurysm, with a bleeding nose not unlike a classic Japanese anime. More FIFA 15 Guides and News on

“We want to keep the game fair and secure for everyone, and ensure a level playing field for all [FIFA Ultimate Team] fans,” EA wrote in a blog post explaining the changes. “To accomplish this we have to root out the activities of coin farmers and cheaters who are harming your experience with the game.”

“These exploiters generate coins illegitimately in the FUT economy through the use of bots and phishing scams, creating a flood of fraudulent in-game currency and driving up the cost of players on the Transfer Market,” the developer added.

Conversely, there are players that were purchased for a great deal before the cap was introduced that now cannot be sold even at their minimum, because the minimum is a stark amount of coins – coins that players don’t have, because they can no longer ship their players without the ease of open-bid auctions.

The Guardian has gone to the trouble of asking a few YouTubers, dedicated to the FUT cause, their opinion. It’s well worth the longer read, although it should be noted that the intricacies of FUT, and the market in particular, are not as simple as some of you might be imagining.

Iniesta’s right foot, source of inspiration

Runeme – Andres Iniesta controlled the ball with his right foot, took a couple of steps forward and struck a fierce shot into the bottom corner. More informations on

That sweetly taken goal, which came at the end of a desperately tight 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Final against the Netherlands, sealed Spain’s first world title and secured Iniesta a lasting place in footballing folklore. It also inspired a 15-year-old Hungarian by the name of Zsolt Kalmar, watching the game a continent and 13,000 kilometres away.

Five years on from that memorable night in Johannesburg, Kalmar is preparing to bring his own skills to bear on the global stage, as part of a Hungary side aiming to spring a surprise at the FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015.

Voicing his admiration for his Spanish role model, the Hungarian youngster said: “His technique is amazing and he comes up with solutions to all sorts of problems in the blink of an eye.”

Iniesta's right foot, source of inspiration

A busy year
As his side’s skipper and playmaker, Kalmar is sure to be in the thick of things when Hungary begin their tilt at glory in New Zealand, where they will take on Brazil, Korea DPR and Nigeria in the first round.

Daunting though it is, he cannot wait for the challenge to begin: “If we do our job properly, we’ll have our chances against all three opponents. It won’t be easy, though. We’re going to give our all and we’ll see where that takes us.”

The South Americans, five-time winners of the event, will start as hot favourites to top the section. There is little to choose between the other three members of the group, however, with Hungarian hopes further fired by the fact that they took third place on the podium on their last appearance in the competition, at Egypt 2009, their best finish in their five visits to the tournament.

The trip to New Zealand promises to be yet another big step forward for the promising Kalmar, who won his first full international cap in May 2014 and then helped his country book their U-20 world finals place at UEFA European Under-19 Championship held in Hungary a couple of months later. Those achievements were then followed by a move to German second division side RB Leipzig.

“It’s a big honour for me to have played for the national team,” said Kalmar, as assured with a microphone in front of him as he is with a ball at his feet. “I’m also very proud to have worn the captain’s armband at the U-19 Euros, even if our results weren’t exactly what we were hoping for. Now my career has taken me to Leipzig, and I think I’ve made the right choice.”

FIFA 15 Web and Companion App: Transfer Market Will Return Back

FIFA 15 News – EA Sports announced that it would introduce a new Price Range feature in order to set a minimum and a maximum price for all the Ultimate Team content that will be sold on the transfer market of FIFA 15, which amazed a lot of FIFA fans, according to Runeme.

Even more controversial was the decision to make the trading system inaccessible on the official web and companion mobile app.

Now EA Sports is offering a wide ranging defense of the two moves and explains that they are designed to make sure that fairness and fun become the defining attributes of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team and that there is no way for unscrupulous players to take advantage of the rest of the community.

FIFA 15 Web and Companion App: Transfer Market Will Return Back

EA Sports says that it has seen an improvement in the situation since Price Range were introduced for FIFA 15 and claims that it is also investing in better security for all personal accounts and in new anti-cheating mechanics.

Gamers can get free packs by simply logging into the game each day and they can also take part in a new Birthday Cup competition to get players that have been featured in the Team of the Week packages.

EA Sports has not said whether it plans to deliver more patches for FIFA 15 which will tweak the core game mechanics before shifting fully to the next title in the franchise.

Do you want to have free FUT packs

Good news, guys, EA Sports will release free FIFA 15 packs for FUT on PS4, Xbox One to celebrate 6 years of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, which will help to save some FIFA 15 Coins – you can get free football players in the packages.

You heard that correctly. EA, who currently have to deal with the childish abuse on their Twitter account from entitled UK players on a daily basis has decided to give back to the community.

free FUT packs

Until Sunday March 29, you can claim a free FIFA 15 pack on PS4 and Xbox One at 6pm UK time every day as of now. You can see a list of some players that are possible in the packs below, although this could relate to the players who are available by winning a special FUT anniversary tournament too.

Given the amount of cash that players spend on the FUT system, it’s nice to see EA giving away some more freebies – nobody can complain about that.

One thing to remember though – these free FIFA 15 packs are untradeable, meaning that you can’t sell them on again for coins if you get a rare player.

free FUT packs

While this is frustrating if you pull out a Messi or Ronaldo, it’s due to exploiters that EA has enforced this so that spammers with multiple accounts cannot resell vast amounts of free pack players for profit.

What do think about this free packages? Are there actually any UK players out there who are appreciative of EA’s efforts?

Luis Suarez’s stunning second-half strike in El Clasico

UTfifa15coins – Barcelona beats Real Madrid moving four points clear of their rivals at the top of the Spanish La Liga standings, because Luis Suarez’s stunning second-half strike, which really amazed all the football fans.

The Uruguayan brought down Dani Alves’ long ball to produce a sweet finish past Iker Casillas on 55 minutes, restoring Barça’s lead after Cristiano Ronaldo had cancelled out Jeremy Mathieu’s opener in the first half. Madrid now have ten matches to recover their four-point deficit with Luis Enrique’s side at the top, but they have a superior head-to-head record as they beat Barça 3-1 at the Bernabeu earlier in the season.

Elsewhere, Cordoba picked up three red cards as La Liga’s bottom side slipped to a 3-1 defeat at Real Sociedad. Aleksandar Pantic was dismissed after just six minutes but the visitors still managed to take the lead as Florin Andone put them in front.

Luis Suarez

Imanol Agirretxe’s equaliser meant David Moyes’ side were level at the break and they moved in front when Gonzalo Castro scored with just 15 minutes remaining. Inigo Lopez was shown a second yellow card before Alfred Finnbogason wrapped up the win in injury time, with Daniel Pinillos sent off in the closing moments of the contest.

Sevilla made it two wins in four days over Villarreal as they won 2-0 at El Madrigal. Unai Emery’s side moved four points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid and six clear of Villarreal in sixth courtesy of second-half strikes from Coke and Vitolo.

In the other game, Deportivo La Coruna are one point above the relegation zone after they were held to a goalless draw at home by Espanyol.

Benteke, David Villa and Aaron Ramsey: Superstars in TOTW 27

Hi, guys, do you have enough FIFA 15 Coins, you may have to lose some coins – EA Sports have released a new Team of the Week package for the Ultimate Team mode in FIFA 15 yesterday, which includes many superstars like Benteke, David Villa and Aaron Ramsey. Don’t hesitate, just go and buy them.

Midfield duties in the Ultimate Team line-up created by EA Sports will be handled by Sansone, Ramsey, Carrick and Eremenko.

Benteke, David Villa and Aaron

The defensive line of the new package is made up of Alaba, who has played very well for Bayern, Sane and Tremoulina.

The goalkeeper selected by EA Sports is Mandanda, who is becoming one of the best keepers of the big European championships.

There are also seven substitutes included in the Team of the Week package, which will most probably be used to generate funds in order for other transfers to be implemented.

FIFA 15 now has price caps for all Ultimate Team items

The biggest change that was recently made to FIFA 15 is the addition of the Price Range concept for all the items that are being sold on the transfer market for Ultimate Team.

EA Sports says that all the current limits are based on careful evaluation of how interesting the various players were to the community and that they might make more such changes in the coming weeks, taking into account the feedback coming from the players.

Benteke, David Villa and Aaron

The new Price Range system is designed to make sure that all gamers who are playing Ultimate Team will be able to afford the most important superstars from the world of football, including Lionel Messi.

The fourth title update for FIFA 15 was also introduced, making mostly stability-focused changes to the football sim.

At the moment, EA Sports is also running events linked to the title in order to keep gamers engaged in the long term.

EA Sports have put most of it’s resources on the next installment in the series, hoping get full details during the E3 2015 event in June, which is facially unveiled at some point during spring.

FIFA: lowest-ranked team can get good grades too

UTfifa15coins – The lowest-ranked team in world soccer has made miracles again on Tuesday, they advanced to the second round of World Cup qualifying, which means the huge progress they have got.

Bhutan, a Himalayan kingdom ranked 209th by FIFA, beat Sri Lanka 2-1 at home in the second leg and advanced 3-1 on aggregate.

Chencho Gyeltshen scored both goals for Bhutan while Zohar Mohamed Zarwan scored for Sri Lanka.

Bhutan had lost all 18 matches it played from 2009 to 2014, including a 20-0 rout against Kuwait in an Asian Cup qualifying match.

In the next round, Bhutan will be placed into one of eight groups of five teams and could end up facing Asian powers like Japan, Iran or South Korea.

FIFA, lowest-ranked team

India, East Timor, Cambodia and Taiwan also advanced to the second round of Asian qualifying.

The match between Pakistan and Yemen in Lahore was postponed for safety and security reasons, and FIFA said it will announce a new date and venue later.

Yemen won the first leg 3-1.

On Sunday, 15 people were killed in Lahore when suicide bombers targeted two churches in a Christian neighborhood, for which the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility. A Christian mob then burned two people to death who were suspected of being involved.

Many football fans feel angry with Lahore bombing, which has caused very bad influence to the football career in this country.

Say “happy birthday” to these great football players

Yesterday is an usual Sunday to most of us, but Yesterday is unusual to those people, who is well-known in football field. Yesterday is their birthday, according to the record of UTfifa15coins, let’s say “happy birthday” to these players.

15. Christian Lopez (62) wore the colours of France at the FIFA World Cup™ in 1978 and 1982, scoring a goal at the former and reaching the semi-finals at the latter. The Algeria-born defender started out at Saint-Etienne, where he won four league titles and three French cups. He also appeared for ASSE in the 1976 European Cup final versus Bayern Munich, and Lopez later turned out for Toulouse and Montpellier.

16. Admir Mehmedi (24) donned Switzerland’s jersey at Brazil 2014, where he made four appearances, including La Nati’s Round-of-16 exit at the hands of Argentina. The versatile attacker previously starred at the 2008 Blue Stars/FIFA Youth Cup, at which he was named Player of the Tournament, and the 2011 UEFA European U-21 Championship, where the Swiss reached the final. He also took part in the 2012 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament in London. Mehmedi turned professional at FC Zurich, where he claimed two Swiss Super League titles, before signing for Dynamo Kiev, who sent him out on loan to Freiburg. In May 2014, he joined the German outfit on a permanent basis.

happy birthday

17. Steven Pienaar (33) appeared for South Africa at two World Cups, in 2002, and on home soil in 2010, where he played in all three of his country’s matches. The dynamic attacking midfielder also took part in the 2008 CAF Africa Cup of Nations and the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, helping the Bafana Bafana to reach the semi-finals of the latter contest. After lifting the national cup with Ajax Cape Town, he moved to Dutch giants Ajax, with whom he secured two Eredivisie titles, two Dutch Cups and two Dutch Super Cups. Pienaar, the 2009 South African Player of the Year, later pulled on the jerseys of Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur. He returned to the Toffees in 2012.

18. Jovan Kirovski (39) represented USA in the 1999 and 2003 Confederations Cups, as well as in two CONCACAF Gold Cups, one of which – in 1996 – resulted in the Stars and Stripes finishing third. In addition, the California native competed in the Copa America and the 1996 Olympic Football Tournament. He got his club career off to a flying start, earning winners’ medals in the UEFA Champions League and Intercontinental Cup with Borussia Dortmund, before enjoying spells at Fortuna Cologne, Sporting Lisbon, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Los Angeles Galaxy, Colorado Rapids and San Jose Earthquakes. Kirovski landed several major honours with LA, including two MLS Cups and four Western Conference titles.

19. Kolo Toure (34) recently helped Côte d’Ivoire to capture the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 1992, after which he retired from international football after 15 years of loyal service. The solid centre-back appeared at three World Cups and seven Cup of Nations tournaments, finishing second in 2006 and 2012. At club level, he started off in his homeland with ASEC Mimosas, where he bagged two Ivoirian Championships and a CAF Super Cup, before committing himself to Arsenal, with whom he clinched an English Premier League crown, two FA Cups and two FA Community Shields. Toure also played for Manchester City, winning another league title, FA Cup and FA Community Shield, and moved to Liverpool in 2013.

happy birthday

20. Marcos Rojo (25) participated in six matches with Argentina at Brazil 2014, gaining a runners-up medal for his efforts. During the group stage, the pacey left-back, whose international career began at the 2011 Copa America, got forward well to score the winning goal against Nigeria. The South American turned professional at Estudiantes, his home-town team, where he scooped an Argentinian League title and the Copa Libertadores, but lost the FIFA Club World Cup final to Barcelona in 2009. He exported his defensive skills to Europe in 2011, successively plying his trade for Spartak Moscow, Sporting Lisbon and present club Manchester United.

21. Antoine Griezmann (24) was an ever-present during France’s 2014 World Cup campaign in Brazil, having previously garnered international experience at the 2010 UEFA European U-19 Championship, where he and his team-mates emerged victorious, and at the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup, where Les Bleuets finished fourth. A product of Real Sociedad’s youth academy, the exciting forward duly established himself in the starting XI, winning the Segunda Division title and going on to score 40 goals in four seasons in La Liga. After the World Cup, he put pen to paper with Atletico Madrid, and hoisted the Spanish Super Cup soon afterwards. Griezmann is currently Los Colchoneros’ top scorer in the Spanish League (and joint fourth overall), with 14 goals in 27 matches.

How will FIFA 16 be improved

FIFA first illuminated fans’ homes was 22 years ago, which was a football simulation video game launched by EA Sports. During these 22 years. FIFA has made great progress and got thousands of fans, EA also earned alot of money by selling FIFA 15 Coins, a game currency in the game. It’s FIFA 15 now, and FIFA 16 will be released in near future.

FIFA 14 was a tremendousinstalment of the game, and FIFA 15 is a natural progression up from that, but both were far from perfect, and both could have been further improved by the addition of slick features to take gameplaying to an extra dimension.

There are plenty of obvious amendments to make for the game to be worth the users’ annual £40+ purchase, including a long list of fan wishes that haven’t yet been heeded and simple fixes to actually make the game more realistic. But the question remains, will EA listen to the fans who have skyrocketed the series into the list of console gaming essentials?

10. Shake Up The Refereeing System

Like with the managers, referees should be utilised to their maximum effect. There are lists online detailing each referee’s leniency, but that information should be readily available at the start of each game.

FIFA 16 be improved

The fans want a quick overview of the referee’s real-life statistics, but most importantly, they need to be given noticeable characteristics. Refereeing personalities could affect the game in a sense that lenient referees could let you off with a risky foul on the edge of the box, while strict ones could send your man marching down the tunnel for an innocuous challenge.

Yes, there’s an underlying system of that already, and obviously there’d need to be a good balance, but FIFA need to look at every small detail of a football game and expand it in order to create a truly phenomenal experience.

9. Creator Mode For Ultimate Team

Ultimate Team is FIFA’s gem. It’s built an enormous community, and sent the game spirally further ahead of PES, but it still needs some practical features.

FIFA 16 be improved

It’s a gamer’s team, with a gamer’s assembled squad, but they’re wearing the kit of a random team, with the badge of another club, in a probably iconic stadium.

To really create a truly unique team, fans should be given the option to design a kit, badge and possibly even construct a stadium using coins they have accumulated. New sponsors for the kit could garner extra coins for a team, depending on their level in the game. It would add a new dimension to the popular game mode, and keep fans coming back for more.

8. More Coins Available

EA have been bombarded by outraged fans after imposing price ranges on Ultimate Team players in a bid to stop coin-purchasing and other similar practices.

FIFA 16 be improved

It’s understandable, after all, it’s taking revenue away from EA, but they’ve gone the wrong way about stopping it. The price ranges are restrictive and take control away from the user.

More game modes, challenges and opportunities to earn coins should be brought in. Coins and packs should be cheaper to pick up too. Give people a reason to gain coins from them, rather than punish players for using cost-effective measures from elsewhere

7. In-Game TV Channel

Here’s another item that probably won’t feature, but could be utilised incredibly well. An in-game TV channel.

FIFA 16 be improved

The game already feels like a Sky Sports broadcast, with the commentators, Jeff Stelling and Geoff Shreeves all in place, so why not go full-steam ahead and have animated studio clips for analysis, replays and general comments on the game pre-match, at half-time and post-match.

It seems crazy. and it sounds like a lot of effort, and an unfeasible idea until you realise that the model is already being used in NBA 2K15.

6. Time-Wasting

Taking a break from features for a brief moment, it’s pretty much universally agreed that fans want total control of their game. From mentality, to personnel, to style.

FIFA 16 be improved

So why should fans not be allowed to take charge when it comes to corners, throw-ins and other set-pieces? If you’re 1-0 up in the last minute following a tense affair with your best mate who’s just tanked you 5-0, you want to hang on for dear life.

The game should be continuous, but in fact, cut scenes dictate how quickly you take a throw-in. Fans want to be able to wander casually to the sidelines as they edge out a narrow victory, rather than sprint across and allow precious seconds to be spent worrying over the result.

5. A ‘Bring Down’ Button

There’s nothing worse than when a pinpoint ball is placed onto your man, but he’s got nobody to aim a header to, and a defender to challenge. It’s like there’s a button missing.

FIFA 16 be improved

Fans should be able to press a button in the same way as heading the ball, but rather than aimlessly flicking on to nobody, they should be able to stop the ball dead, use their chest and generally gain control of the thing.

Like every new move in FIFA, the balance has to be spot on. You can’t just have anybody able to control every ball, but the likes of Marouane Fellaini, for example, should be able to use their physicality to reign the ball in

4. More Teams

It’s a pretty obvious one, but the more teams on FIFA, the better. Obscure match-ups put both players on a level playing field when it comes to knowledge, and can result in some unpredictable and frantic games

FIFA 16 be improved

A recent poll conducted on found that people want to see the Israeli, Ukrainian and Brazilian league instated into the game, while the Chinese Super League hosts a few well-known stars plying their trade in the Far East.

Another idea would be to bring out a series of classic teams. The Arsenal Invincibles side including Henry and Bergkamp could square off against Manchester United’s 1999 Champions League winning heroes. Or going even further back, the England 1966 team against Maradona’s Argentina. Tantalising.

3. Change The Record

FIFA has had some sensational anthems over the years. Kasabian, Muse and Bloc Party have featured alongside a whole host of lesser-known artists who’ve given us some great soundtracks over the years.

FIFA 16 be improved

But it might be nice to personalise the sound even more. With more Ultimate Team use and online waiting times, the music is important to keep people sane, so why not open it up even further?

Spotify would be ideal for the soundtrack, and although it’s unlikely, being able to log into a Spotify account and select from their wide variety of playlists would make the whole ‘waiting game’ even more enjoyable for the user.

2. Chairman Mode

In a similar ilk to ‘referee mode’, chairman mode would not be the main aspect of FIFA, but would allow players to choose how they want to build their team’s legacy.

FIFA 16 be improved

Chairmen could hire or fire managers, demand a certain style, set the budgets and negotiate transfers. The mode could even include setting ticket prices and choosing when to increase capacity or pull marketing stunts.

This would be like taking a more ‘Football Manager’ approach, but that’s the sort of fresh idea people want to see in a FIFA game, although the concept is already tried and tested to work in the Madden series.

1. The Wow Factor

There will always be room for improvement in every edition of FIFA, and there will always be flaws that need to be ironed out, but EA’s genius is in the detail. The first time you shot and saw the TV cameras spinning to watch your effort sail wide, you said wow. It was a tiny detail, but lots of tiny details make a huge difference.

FIFA 16 be improved

Fans want to see insane crowds falling over in the terraces celebrating a last minute winner over their bitter rivals, they want to see flares being lit up in the elite European stadia, and grand displays unfurled in Dortmund.

Players want to see wild celebrations from the players, whipping their tops off when the time is right, and changeable weather during the game. 90 minutes of a torrential downpour is no fun for anyone. Mix it up a bit with some glimmers of sun. And most importantly… Include the magic spray for set-pieces.

The basic game model will always remain fairly similar, but players want to be wowed when they rip open the box. They don’t just want a few updates that could be fixed in a quick patch, they want a new game. Big changes for the better would be great, but even just intricate details would add to the realism, intensity, and all round excitement of the FIFA experience.
