FIFA 16: New Pactch Promises Enhanced Gameplay

FIFA 16 has returned and is sitting at number 3 on the Christmas games chart, according to The Independent,

The Microsoft Xbox Store Countdown Sale has deals on Xbox One and Xbox 360 running over the Christmas holidays. Additional Daily Deals have just kicked off and will run until 31st December.

FIFA 16, a traditionally strong performer, was expected to top the chart but was pipped by FPS Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in the race for the 2015 UK number 1, as reported by Metro. Star Wars Battlefront on PS4was expected to be the all-platforms number 1 this year, thanks to a strategic release date at the peak of the Star Wars film hype, but it ended at number 2 on the chart, as reported by PlayStationLifeStyle.

Gazette Review had some criticisms of the well-received game, saying that FIFA 16 is a little slower this time. The game designers have opted to reverse the FIFA 15 trend of allowing players to leave defenders behind with ease. In FIFA 16, “players rarely have the chance to leave defenders behind as they can easily catch up.” Stars in FIFA 15 would often run past defenders for an easy goal, causing frustration for players who like to defend.

The frustration will be eased in FIFA 16, but at the expense of a degree of realism:
“The change [in FIFA 16] benefits the players that like to defend and makes it more difficult for those who have stars on their team to score fast. This isn’t a big problem but it sometimes seems unrealistic as some low rated players can easily catch up to the stars.”

The game was praised for very good goalkeepers (“almost too good” — it can be very difficult to score close to them). Many reported a problem with finding opponents due to issues with Ultimate Team, such as disconnections and players being randomly logged out of the servers.

FIFA 16 predicts the Newcastle vs Everton result

Newcastle United take Everton for the Boxing Day fixture, and we have taken to FIFA 16 to predict the result.

With the Magpies in decent form, having beating Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in their last three games, it should be a competitive affair at St. James’ Park.

The Toffees are fresh off the back of a defeat to Leicester City and will be ready to dish out some revenge in order to get back up with the pack chasing for European football.

With Newcastle lining up in Steve McClaren’s favoured 4-4-2, the defence consisted of Rob Elliot in goal, a back four of Paul Dummett, Fabricio Coloccini, Chancel Mbemba and Daryl Janmaat. Georginio Wijnaldum was on the left, Jack Colback and Vurnon Anita in the middle and Moussa Sissoko out wide. Dynamic duo Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez were the strike partnership.

Rather inevitably, the away side opened the scoring through in form Belgian Romelu Lukaku after a Gerard Deulofeu assist. However, it didn’t take long before the Magpies hit back through their own beast of a striker, Mitrovic, who picked the ball up inside the box and muscled his way past the Everton defence for a simple finish into Tim Howard’s goal.

That goal seemed to galvanise the Tynesiders and Siem de Jong, on as a substitute and keen to offset some of his recent criticism, scored his first goal of the season with a curling shot from inside the area.

Newcastle then hunkered down, and keen to hit Everton on the break, brought on the pace of Florain Thauvin – who turned provider for Wijanldum to seal the deal later on in the game.

For Newcastle to match this result in real life they are going to have to play with heart, finesse but also determination. Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has his side playing well, and Lukaku has been in the form of his life. The Toon defence has been shaky at times, and the side from Liverpool have pace to burn on the wings.

It’s going to be a tight game, but the Magpies play well against ‘better’ sides, and this could spark a match winning performance from them.

FIFA 16 FUT Servers Down for December 17th Maintenance

FUTMAS for FIFA 16 may have kicked off with daily free gifts, but we can see that FIFA 16 servers are down on December 18 again for 3 hour maintenance.

EA has not given a reason for taking Ultimate Team down again, but at least we know when FIFA 16 will be back up.

According to a Tweet sent out recently, the EA servers will be down from 7am – 10am UK time. If you were already logged in to FUT, you won’t be able to start any matches due to maintenance which is now underway.

fut-maintenance

Hopefully there will not be any further delays and many of you will be able to start playing again when the maintenance window ends.

Those opening special FUTMAS packs in the store are going to need some good luck to get the best players, as we ourselves see no difference whatsoever to the packs that you get from FUT Draft – just the FUTMAS design appearing to attract you to buy.

Are the FIFA 16 servers down for you at the moment and have you had any luck from FUTMAS FIFA 16 packs?

FIFA 16 new update: EA patch four key areas following fan feedback

The ever-popular football title has once again proved its worth in the market, outselling various popular titles while making a number of subtle yet effective changes to its predecessors.

However, fans of the game had been hoping to see an improvement in four areas, namely penalties and referee decisions, passing, defensive pressure and player positioning.

And EA have responded by confirming a patch for FIFA 16 on PC, with one for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to follow shortly.

fifa 16

A fair amount of changes have been made, which include:

– Improvements to the Rules and Physics systems to have better referee decisions and help address penalty decisions

– Behavioural changes in ‘Secondary Contain’ and ‘Interceptions’ to help balance high-pressure situations

– Improvements in how quickly fatigue effects occur for players using ‘Aggressive Interceptions’ and ‘Secondary Contain. This could, in turn, have an impact on your ability to apply high pressure as the games progresses and your players become increasingly fatigued

– Instances where no auto tackle launched even when positioned properly

– Improvements in the positioning system to allow for better attacking runs and support

Players have also been treated to an Ultimate Team tweak which affects the following attribute boosts:

– Passing

– Interceptions

– Long Shots
