Newly qualified U.S. entrant for the FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC), Brian Jaldin, has revealed his dream to meet hero Cristiano Ronaldo at next year’s Ballon d’Or.
The 21-year-old secured his place at the 32-man Grand Final in New York, which runs from March 20-22, by winning Saturday’s host nation qualification tournament in Seattle.
For a diehard Real Madrid supporter like Jardin, the possibility of winning the FIWC and having the opportunity to attend next year’s Ballon d’Or ceremony as a VIP is a huge motivation.
“I’d most want to meet Cristiano Ronaldo, he’s the best player in the world,” Jaldin told Goal. “He’s a complete player and [Lionel] Messi is just a different kind of style but Ronaldo is a complete player.”
Jaldin coasted to a 4-1 victory in the qualification final with Real Madrid and the Arlington, Virgina, native has faith that he can beat the best in the world if he plays to his strengths.
Jaldin will be the host country’s representative at next month’s FIWC Grand Final, where the winner will be awarded $20,000.
Another week is coming to a close which means that we are getting ready to find out what time the FIFA 16 Winter Upgrades Week 3 are out for FIFA 16.
EA took longer than expected last week to go live with the Week 2 upgrades, but it was exciting when they finally did as Lewandowski, Di Maria and Higuain all received upgrades.
For those that needs a heads-up, the Winter Upgrades for Week 3 should be out after 10am UK time. This was the schedule last week, but EA took longer to actually put the players into the database.
Jonas still hasn’t been upgraded, so we hope he makes it into the FIFA 16 Winter Upgrades Week 3 list. You could argue that Zlatan Ibrahimovic should get an upgrade to 90 after his amazing form this season.
Undoubtedly, Ultimate Team has garnered the most attention from EA developers and gamers in most recent years. There is an ongoing quest undertaken by players to consistently improve their squads. One area of interest to improve their cards is purchasing of Chemistry Styles, a consumable card.
As any other consumable, they can be purchased on the market, or obtained from a pack. In FUT 13, players received boosts for every stat. Since FUT 14, players receive boosts for a chosen number of stats dependent on the Chemistry Style selected. These cards can be applied to a player to change their style of play adjusting the players attributes to their squad needs.
Chemistry Styles cards allow players to choose which stats will be affected by chemistry.
The chemistry styles cards do not change the chemistry numbers. They redistribute the stats that will receive chemistry boosts. Chemistry boosts will increase the value of specific in-game stats–thus increasing the player’s ability to perform.
Everyone loves to play some video games from time to time, but nobody expects to be able to make a living doing so. For the most part, playing Xbox or Playstation is a great way to relieve stress, kill some time, and have some fun. However, Wolfsburg proved that is not always the case.
On Thursday, the club confirmed that they have signed David Bytheway to an official contract-even though the transfer window is already over. Bytheway won’t be playing any part on the pitch for the club or even on the bench as a coach, but instead he has been designated as the team’s official FIFA 16 representative.
Bytheway has become renowned across the globe for his FIFA skills, having represented England at the FIFA Interactive World Cup. He will now be dawning the green and white of Wolfsburg every time he plays in a tournament, or creates a video.
The 22-year-old has big dreams for the world of professional video gaming, as he hopes that more teams in leagues across Europe also take up the idea of signing a full-time FIFA player.
While it may be a while before we see the likes of Manchester United or Chelsea signing a video game stud to their squad, Wolfsburg proved on Thursday that the idea may not be as far fetched as one might think.
