FIFA 16 Hacks to Get the Most Out of FUT Draft Mode

One of the headline features of FIFA 16 is FIFA Ultimate Team Draft (FUT Draft). It lets you create your dream football fantasy lineup, and then pit it against the AI or human opponents online, in four matches; once your set is over you can win rare players for your FIFA Ultimate Team, cards that enhance your team attributes, and a whole lot more. In order to take part in the draft, you need 15,000 coins (obtained in the course of playing FIFA 16) or 300 FIFA Points (bought with real money).

It seems like a small fee for many a die-hard footie fan to try out some of the best players in the game, at the moment the rewards are poor and may not be worth the effort. Unless of course, you’re using the right strategies.

When you start FUT Draft, you’ll be asked to choose your formation. Right now, EA has limited it to random choices, so don’t be surprised if your favourite formation is not available in FIFA 16. What you need to do is go with something that’s balanced, allowing you attack, and still being ready to defend against attacks.

Much like in FIFA Ultimate Team, chemistry is important here as well. Go with a formation that allows you to contain all position types. This is because the next step after choosing a formation, is selecting players-and this is dependent on the positions available in your team.

Before finalising your FIFA 16 FUT Draft team, hover over players and preview each of them using the square or X button (depending if you’re on a PlayStation or Xbox console). Doing so will help you gauge which of these potential players are the best for your squad and play style.  Sell Cheap FIFA 16 Coins

FIFA 16 vs PES 2016: Why Pro Evolution Soccer is set to surpass EA Sports

FIFA 16 and PES 2016 are set to do battle later in September and while Konami concede there no longer top dog, the developers are now ready to retake the top spot.

The gap is closing between the PES series and EA’s top football franchise, according to Konami and it does look good that this year’s version has been so well received.

The game played like a return to the glory days of the series and the tagline ‘Love The Past, Play The Future’, truly represents this. It is a return to core PES values. It has always had the issue of not having licensing.

However, PES 2016 is the official video game of the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup and also comes with a completely overhauled Master League and dynamic weather effects.

And Konami say they are now ready to renew the battle for the footballing video game top spot and hope to win it back through having the better presentation and visuals.

“We’re definitely catching up with FIFA,” product manager Adam Bhatti told MCV.

“And we have to be respectful about that. We have to keep closing that gap. In a couple of years we’ll clearly lead again.   Fifa 16 xbox coins

Brazilian pro soccer teams return to FIFA 16, but not its career modes

After a strange-and total-absence from FIFA 15, Brazilian professional football returns in FIFA 16, though they league they play in does not.

Sixteen Brazilian sides will be available in the game using their authentic crests and club names, but they will be available for play from the “Rest of the World” team menu, which is where the FIFA series houses its licensed but league-unaffiliated clubs. The teams “will be playable in most game modes,” EA Sports said in an announcement yesterday. The career suite is not one of them. Players on these teams will be available in the transfer database if managers wish to acquire them for their clubs in that mode.

The teams included are Atletico-MG, Atletico-PR, Avai, Coritiba, Chapecoense, Cruzeiro, Figueirense, Fluminense, Gremio, Internacional, Joinville, Ponte Preta, Palmeiras, Santos, Sao Paulo, and Vasco da Gama Notably, Corinthians, currently leading Brazil’s 20-club top division, are not in the game, along with Flamengo, Sport Recife and Goias.

A full list of leagues and teams appearing in FIFA 16 will be announced soon, EA Sports said.

No Brazilian pro team featured in last year’s FIFA 15, which EA Sports attributed to a change in how players were licensed by Brazil’s domestic leagues. Brazil had a league in FIFA 14 (as well as Corinthians). South American teams and leagues have long been part of the competing Pro Evolution Soccer series, which has rights to the continent’s Copa Sudamericana club tournament. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 features all of Brazil’s Serie A and four teams from its Serie B.

FIFA 16 launches Sept. 22 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It is the first edition of FIFA to have no presence on any Nintendo platform since 2000.    Fifa 16 xbox 360 coins

EA reveal the new and lost features from FIFA 16 Xbox One and PS4

Fifa 16 xbox 360 coins   FIFA 16 on Xbox 360 and PS3 will have a range of new features but will also miss out on many coming to the Xbox One and PS4, publisher EA have revealed.

Posting a full rundown of what is set to be included on the last-gen consoles, EA say they have pushed to bring as much innovation as possible but fans will still have to be prepared for a more limited experience.

“The team remains dedicated to bringing gameplay innovation and popular game modes on last generation’s platforms, so there are lots of new features to watch out for,” a post from EA reads.

“Due to console limitations and available resources, those versions of FIFA 16 do not feature all the same innovations and new modes that are available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC.”

FIFA 16 on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will miss out on the Creation Centre, a tool that allows for the customisation and building of your own formations and tournaments.

Custom Music and Chants will also be lost in the move to Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms, along with the FIFA Interactive World Cup, GameFace, Match Lobbies and secondary English commentary with Clyde Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.

However, fans don’t have to worry that any of the main features of the game, such as FIFA Ultimate Team, Online Seasons or Career Mode, have been scrapped.

The FIFA 16 demo is set for launch soon, being released on Xbox One and PS4 on September 8, followed by Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 9.

What John Terry’s FIFA 16 rating tells us about his public perception

It’s that time of the year again. EA Sports is just a few weeks away from releasing it’s annual football video game. FIFA 16 will hit stores on September 22 and in preparation, EA has begun releasing their top 50 player ratings for this year.

The first Chelsea player to make an appearance on the list is the captain John Terry at number 44.

JT moves up two whole rating points from a 83 overall last year to an 85 making him one of the highest rated defenders in the game. So that’s nice. And it shouldn’t be surprising after the fantastic season the 34-year-old just had. FIFA ratings supposedly reflect the real world (though 2-star skill moves are perhaps a bit generous), and given the perception of Terry as one of the best, and all the accolades and awards and praise he received last season, improving his in-game rating is to be expected.

What’s interesting about the fluctuation in his rating is that in both FIFA 14 and 15 he was rated an 83. All the critics both in the virtual world and in real life had started to write off the veteran as someone who was coming to the end of his brilliant career. But now that his rating is the highest it’s been since all the way back in FIFA 12 (86), he’s suddenly gone back a more natural career regression players of his age tend to suffer.

Just when the video game caught up with real life, real life has once again decided to leave it behind. Or has it? Is Terry really done being the world class center back he had once again become after getting written off in 2012-13? Or is this just a minor blip in the road? FIFA’s (trailing) perception is that Terry is still one of the best. Last week, the English media had already written him off.   Fifa 16 xbox 360 coins
