So its been more around 4 months since FIFA 15 has been out and it got mixed reaction from dedicated FIFA fans, EA Sports brought the game to next gen consoles and even PC got the next gen version. There was quite a few gameplay changes in the game from more players animations, facial expression, better ball physics and some tactical changes. Apart from that there were minor changes like live tv presentations before the game (view of the stadium), animated crowd, trembling cross bars, dirty kits and animated substitute bench.
EA Sports also got 20 premier league official clubs and stadiums which got a good feeling in the game but since it was the first time that FIFA was released on next gen, we can safely say that FIFA 16 will make the better use of PS4 and Xbox one hardware and today we take a look at some of the wanted features and our wishlist for FIFA 16.
FIFA 16 Wishlist:
There are so many game modes in the FIFA franchise now, from online seasons and ultimate team to offline career mode, training and 11 vs 11. Here are some suggestions on how EA can improve some those modes.
Making our own online tournament and leagues:
One feature I would love to see in 2016 version of the game is ability to make our own league or knockout tournaments online. Where we can invite friends (online players) to join and contest. We should be able to make champions league style tournament or a simple straight forward league.
Keeping the playing field even in online modes:
In FIFA 15 Real Madrid was by far the most over powered team in the game, I understand they won the champions league last season and Ronaldo was in great form and they should be better than everyone else but not unreal. Ronaldo is unplayable sometimes and the likes of Bale, Rodriguez and even Benzema is just superb.
For god’s sake make counter attack a little bit more hard to do, you see in real life there is rarely a goal where player is one on one from almost halfway line (i am talking about lofted through ball abuse). 90% of goals are almost same.
One way to counter this abuse is to make is possession style more rewarding. right not thats opposite.
This leads to everyone picking Real Madrid and they bully other teams with custom tactics which not many other people know how to use. which leads to our next suggestions.
Bring Custom Tactics in Online Seasons & Ultimate Football:
I understand that we can use custom tactics in online seasons mode but first it should be done in offline and than save and than use in online match. Why not just put custom tactics on team management in online seasons ? I would love to have total control over my teams tactics. for example.
- Kind of pressing to be used in the match (own area, own half or all over)
- Passing Style (Short, Direct or Longballs)
- Tempo (slow, normal, fast)
- Attacking Style (mixed, through the middle, down both flanks, down left flank or right)
- More tacticts like (men behind the ball, tight marking, target man)
Offline Career Mode Suggestions:
Recorded statistics from seasons to season (currently game won’t keep track of previous seasons winners, goals, assist records etc)
Individual player awards (in PES they have player of the season award while playing in career mode, EA should also introduce such awards like Ballon Dor, european golden boot winner, league top scorer etc)
More authentic commentary (why not keep some part of the commentary for only rare moments ? like for example Rooney scores a match winning goal in cup final in dying moments of the game, commentators should go mental 🙂
These are the few suggestions comes to my mind, there are many other which are not so important like post match interviews, coin toss etc but that we will cover in our part two of FIFA 16 wishlist. Now you can also shout out a few things which you would like to see in FIFA 16 by using the comments box below.
