fifa15guide : Barcelona’s €70 million Is Not Enough For Paul Pogba

Barcelona has made a €70 million bid for the French midfielder, Paul Pogba.

Pogba has made his name at Juventus and in Serie A as a talented young midfielder. After showcasing his skills as a powerhouse in the middle, Pogba has caught the attention of La Liga big name club, Barcelona.

Pogba was released from Manchester United on a free transfer to Juve and now the Frenchman is probably one of the most expensive player in the sport.

Barcelona’s €70 million (£50 million) bid was rejected by Pogba despite the inclusion of a clause that would see him “loaned back for a year, until June 2016″, per Sport:

Even though Pogba seems very happy at Juve, further reports indicated that the Frenchman would be making his exit come summer.

According to Football Italia, rumors has been circulating that Juventus has been in deals with Paris Saint-Germain’s, Edinson Cavani, and the only thing that could prevent this deal is the failure to sell Pogba. Il Quotidiano Sportivo also stated that an unnamed Juve director sent a text stating:

“We’ve signed Cavani, it’s all done, it’ll only fall through if we don’t sell Pogba.”

With the value of Pogba it will be difficult to sell the French midfielder for his real worth. Chelsea, United, City and Real Madrid are all vying for the young star this summer which could result in a world-record transfer fee.

fifa15guide : EA Release FIFA 15 35K Mega Packs, Fans Say #RIPFUT

35k packs-eaThe FIFA 15 35K Mega Packs are now available in Ultimate team. These cost is 35K  with a limit of 5 packs. The FIFA 15 35K Mega Packs will only be available for a day. This is EA’s first pack promotion since the installment of the Price Range update.

This is basically EA’s way of suggesting – “Now that we stopped coin sellers, let’s get all your money!”

Most members of the FIFA community are still outraged by the Price Range update that resulted in players losing stock in the market. There are now numerous blogs across the web that are calling for gamers to boycott FIFA 16. FIFA faithful have since come to the defense of FIFA claiming the updates were appropriate and makes the market fair for those intent on building their squads the way EA intended.

We know the support for Ultimate Team has been at all time lows. The #RIPFUT hashtag has continued to litter social media. What can EA do to fix their image?

It will all come down to luck but we hope that some of you have managed to pick out some new gold rare players. Send us your pictures so that we can post on our Twitter page (See Full FIFA contacts).

fifa15guide : FIFA 16 News: Best FIFA 16 Wishlist and Rumored Improvements

fifa 16 new

FIFA 16 is only months away and we can tell that anticipation is building. Full FIFA has compiled the ultimate BEST wishlist and rumored improvements for the next installment of the FIFA series – FIFA 16. In this slide show we will list possible improvements for FIFA 16 and the ultimate wishlist for FIFA gamers.

Gameplay changes needed

  • Handballs are never given FIFA 15. This feature must be included in the next installment.
  • There needs to be realistic stadium attendees. The only time the Emptihad (Arsenal’s Etihad stadium) is full is on FIFA. A possible suggestion is make fans boycott the stadium after a derby loss.
  • If a player is injured or banned in real life, they shouldn’t be available to play online.
  • As a manager in Carreer mode I should be able to choose opponents in friendly matches
  • Reactions of subbed players on “ALL PLATFORMS.” Anybody remember Dani Alves kicking that bottle to Jupiter?
  • Where you can select “winner gets all XP” you should be able to do the same on FUT with coins.
  • Make manager’s reactions realistic like missed shots or change in tactics.
  • Have the ball landing indicator EVERY time the ball goes in the air.
  • At the end of Online Friendlies, the game stats should be up along with the season standings. Currently, you have to decline continuing in the season in order to see the match stats.
  • When a player is injured, have the players and ref surround him and show the medics carrying him off.

Note: Be mindful that all changes cannot be implemented. Remember the EA servers when considering the wishlist.

fifa15guide : Did EA Legitimately Address the FIFA 15 Price Range Update?

price-range-fifa

The FIFA 15 Price Range update introduced by EA has received a lot of backlash over the past couple of weeks. The franchise holds to the fact that coin sellers had introduced an unfair gaming environment in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. The criticism has been ongoing as gamers frustration continue to be heard over social media.

The most prominent expression of FUT gamers is the #RIPFUT hashtag, signifying “Rest in peace FIFA Ultimate Team.”

Here’s what EA had to say . . .

The changes consisted of a new price ranges on all players in FUT, which means every player can only be sold for a price with in a specific range, and made accessing the transfer market via the webpage or companion app impossible, all in a bid to stop illegitimate coin sellers and farmers who, EA claimed, were “harming your experience” as they inflated the market by flooding the economy with fraudulent in-game currency. This led to the rise in cost of players, making the highest rated players hard to attain.

Putting price restrictions on the footballers also makes it quite difficult for coins to be bought by the players in the most traditional and easiest way, as a lowly rated card can no longer be purchased for an unrealistically high amount of coins.

These changes have been met with brunt criticism from players, with many saying that it has changed the core Ultimate Experience and think that the move it little more than EA penny grabbing.

But EA have defended their decision in a recent blog post, saying they want the game to be fair and fun for every player.

They said:

“Since implementing these changes, we’re seeing positive signs of restoring balance to the FUT economy and mitigating some of the negative effects of exploitation within the game.”

However, mechanical problems have arisen from the price ranges too, as claims have been made that some players have been priced out of the market, as they’re unsellable and unattainable.

EA are combating this by constantly adjusting the price ranges of players and said that:

“Since the introduction of Price Ranges, we’ve already made more than 650 adjustments to player pricing, with a focus on the highest value players available in the FUT economy. The introduction of Price Ranges has helped restrict illegitimate coin transfers on the FUT Transfer Market, and balance player item prices so they reflect the current marketplace, but finding that right balance will take some time – we have a team dedicated to finding that balance.”

Most see EA’s efforts as a way to further monopolize the market for soccer gaming. People consider it pure greed.

How do you feel about the new Price Range update? Did they provide a legitimate reason for the Price Range update?
