Fifa 12 Ultimate Team Features I'd Like To See

I'm sure if your reading this you will know that I'm a big fan of fifa ultimate team and am quite good at putting teams together and of course trading on the market,i did a hub like this last year for fifa 11 and it proved quite popular so although it may be a little early i thought i would do this fifa 12 ultimate team hub and give it time to mature and for other people to impart their ideas and knowledge,there were some great ideas on my fifa 11 ultimate team features i'd like to see hub and some of them were indeed seen by members of the fifa production team and I'm sure some came to fruition as much as those that didn't see the light of day,why i love these hubs is because of the brilliant ideas that come out of it.I hope you like my ideas and indeed come up with some astounding ones of your own about what you would love to see in the soon to be announced Fifa 12 Ultimate Team

The following wish lists are in no particular order and just represent what i would like to see in the new ultimate team,some obviously wont make it in as they are probably to ludicrous but I'm still going to see if i can sway the team at ea sports.Have a look and feel free to comment with your ideas and suggestions as well as letting me know what you think of mine,Thank you.

Feature 1: Deeper Search Function

I have been wanting this since the first ultimate team,say for example i want an English,premiership playing forward i can go and find him,but if i wanted him to have a high speed rating i would have to search through all of them or go straight to the ones i know.Boring..I would like you to be able to search based on the stats that are on the players card,for example if i want to find players that have good heading i should be able to put this into my search too.As well as all the stats for the players being added to the search i would also like the ability to search for inform players as this would really help me in my trading,plus sometimes i just want a team of informs.

Feature 2:Different Packs

I feel there should be different packs such as a pack of players,packs of contract cards or training cards,mainly when i get a premium gold pack i end up with only 3 players and most of the time they are rubbish and get a 90 contract card,well i don't want the contract card I'm looking for players as are most people,do a player only pack and make it slightly easier to get a good player and I'm not talking Ronaldo I'm just talking like a Terry or a Agbonlahor.Secondly if I'm looking for a training card to add to several players like a formation card then i can buy a training card pack and hopefully get at least 2 that i need.

Feature 3:It Should Cost

 Hold up don't all scream at me....i was dead excited when i learnt that the download for ultimate team was going to be free and then really annoyed when i realised that because of this they couldn't implement any gamer-points or achievements,i admit i am a bit of a gamer-score whore and the extra 200 gamer points that you should get like in UT2010 means a lot to me!!

Feature 3:Overall Squad Rating

 I like the fact that your squad receives a numbered and a starred rating but both ratings are flawed,as soon as you have a couple of players that are 85 rated or higher your overall star rating is 4 or more,i think it may help if the star rating was out of 10,average premier league team would be 6 top four premier may be 8,barcelona and real Madrid possibly 9 then if you amass a bevvy of world class stars you may even get a ten,Plus i have seen teams with both Messi and Ronaldo in and they still are rated less than 90 even though they have a load of other world class players,this seems low

Feature 4:NO 5%

 Thats right ea,do not take our hard earned profit,its highly unlikely i know but if you are doing so well out of people buying packs why do you need to take 5% of our profit,this simply means that unless we sell to stupid people we cannot sell high quality players as the profit margin needs to be immense to make any coins at all.

Feature 5:My Competition

 We as fifa Ultimate Team players should be able to put together our own competition,there are a few players i play online with now thanks to you listening about playing your friends online and as such just having the odd game between friends is a bit boring and it would be great if you could start a 16 or 32 team tournament,choose the name and then send invites to your mates and have them play each other over the course of a time set out by you the competition builder.This would increase online activity quite a bit.

Feature 6:Gambling My Coins

 I know not everyone agrees with gambling and it may be a concern for some of our younger fifa players but if there was a way to restrict it surely to be able to bet your mates or even a stranger 2000 coins say that you were going to beat him,and as soon as you win 2000 of his coins enter your bank account,That would certainly liven up the online play a bit.

Feature 7:Create Your Own Formations

 As formations go i am quite pleased with the amount of formations that ea have given us but i would like to go one step further and see a formation tool whereby you could set out your own formations that you think would give you a head start on your opponent,wouldn't it be great when you were playing online and decided to taunt your opponent about not being able to score and then when you line up he sees that you have not a back four but a back eight!!!!

Feature 8:Training

 I agree with the fact that ea have done away with the training cards that last for ages and are permanent as i too was sick of seeing 99 rated teams but i think as long as you could cap a players performance to say 90 and then you could raise him to that if you wanted but it would take a lot of effort to do so,This may work or not,I'm not 100% sure about it but i feel there is something missing with the current training cards.

Feature 9:A Badge Creator

 The ability to create your own badges or kits for your squad,don't get me wrong its nice to have your favourite teams badge but if you are a Man Utd fan and your team is called Greg's Warriors it would be nice to be able to create your own badge with something a bit more appropriate in it.Plus a kit creator would be superb,being able to design your own kit and then trade it if necessary,For those budding designers out there they could make a fortune,i myself would pay thousands for a good kit with my team badge on it.

Feature 10:Generations

 I like the fact that you can online have a generations team of all of your players from previous years but this isn't the way to show them off,i think most of us work bloody hard to create teams and then when the new download comes out we have to start again,now I'm not saying we should be allowed access to all our old players as this would give us an unfair advantage to the newbies but surely we can keep that squad and you can have a Generations cup and not allow us to transfer our players to our new squads!!.

Feature 11:Cheaper Packs

 Now this isn't normally a problem for me as i trade so well but i know full well that a lot of people have difficulty reaching 7500 coins and when they do they don't necessarily get a good pack and then they are left with no coins,Surely we could lower the price of premium gold packs,if only down to 6000 or something it would help a lot of people out,plus make i more difficult for you to buy packs as i feel the people with lots of real cash can end up with much better teams,although they aren't always the best players!!!!

Feature 12:League Tables

 I don't mean as in premier league tables i mean as in performance tables based on what difficulty level you are playing on,say i play on world class,i want to know where i stand results wise against all the other people who are playing on world class,if I'm No 1 in the world with 200 wins and no losses i want to know about it.So Tables with wins,losses,draws,Goals for and against.

deeper search functions would be awesome, i was trying to build a team of fast players and it was horrible having to scroll through pages and pages of players to find good ones

@doddzy yeah i agree its the feature i want added the most i think!!

jjtavfc 6 years ago

i like the create a badge and kit do you mean something like the creation centre but for fut. Also i like the idea of being able to see your friends playing each other (spectator) so then you know what they are laughing about, and you could see their teams aswell

Dave D 6 years ago

In relation to the search function I agree. I also think you should be able to search by name to because when you're searching for puyol abd you put Spain, Barcelona, CB Piqué comes up as well which is so annoying :P

@dave d yeah good name search ,hadnt thought of that but its obvious really!!

Fifafan 6 years ago

Maybe being able to change kit numbers, Create your own stadium, Maybe be like negative chemistry example: If you put a Argentina CM next to a Brazilian CM chemistry would go down extra because of rivalry. I also agree 100% with you with Gambling your coins, Deeper search Function and the Generation tournement would be epic. I also want like a leaderboard to see who has the best record in FUT and being able to see the squad line up or their last 10 games played maybe even being able to watch the game.

warchild75 profile image

warchild75 6 years ago from Worthing, west sussex, england Author

@fifafan some good ideas there i especially like the leaderboard which is kind of what i meant in league,leaderboards in each difficulty setting so one for proffesional,world class etc,love it!!

JoelSoccer 6 years ago

Yeah nice page. I love the idea of being able to gamble. Imagine having 5K and gambling it and having 10K. That would be awesome. Also name search would be great. Also i would like to be able to get players from south Americas like Neymar just to show him off.

warchild75 profile image

warchild75 6 years ago from Worthing, west sussex, england Author

@joelsoccer yeah not sure they would do the gambling thing,but putting 5 or 10k down when u face one of ur friends would be great and add a little something to the proceedings.

cyren  6 years ago

gambling is the best idea, it will be just like wager matches on Black Ops.

I am new to hub pages today, but i have been following all your ultimate team pages on here since FUT10, they have helped me shit loads (I'm on ps3 but the princible is still the same) and feel it is only nesecerry to say cheers for helping me out, i have had many good teams in the last 2 UT downloads, I like the idea of own kits and badges as i don't want another clubs kit and badge cause I am not Arsenal, I currently use the bota fogo kits and badges cause who the hell knows who they are? not sure how hard it would be though for EA to do this though (if you ever played need for speeds you could cover your car in all sorts of stickers and decalls but as soon as you took that car online they would remove them all). I have always wanted to select my own captain though and select the players numbers myself rather than having strikers given number 2 cause a midfielder has taken 10, i want to select my own corner, penalty and free kick takers in the team screen. be good if a few of all our ideas get taken on board.

there actually is a "consumables" only pack, its only offered as a special pack however so its not always available (it costs 3,000 coins and has 12 items (3 rares), and its mixed (bronze, silver, and gold))

FerdiaR 6 years ago

I love all of these ideas and think they should all come into play except the second part of your kits and badges idea. Like, of course, creating your own would be brilliant BUT I don't think you should be allowed to sell them... Think about it, there would be millions of terrible kits and badges just completely clogging up your search... I think a better idea would be if they created a "Blank Kit" or "Blank Badge" card and were quite rare. You could sell these for thousands!! And it allows you to do whatever you want without a bunch of 'in your face' kits all over the place

warchild75 profile image

warchild75 6 years ago from Worthing, west sussex, england Author

@ferdiar yeah fair point just getting carried away!!good idea about the blank kit cards!!

Adam 6 years ago

I reckon they should put up a play for stakes option (like what you've already said with the gambling side but with players) for e.g. I go into the option and then it comes up which player I would like to put up for stakes then it searches for someone else with the same rating player or price. Also would like there to be challenges added so like if you play like 20 games in that day you win a 80+ player or play 50 and you win a in form player. This will surely make more people play matches because I know I get really bored after like 3 games and then not having enough money to get a pack.

Josh 5 years ago

First off ive only recently found your hub pages, must say they are sweet and gave me alot of info haha ive recently been playing ut (too much haha) and i have put alot of effort into my team and my own money (too much ha) i would like to see a return from it nothing crazy jst discard coins type prices and then pass them onto the next one and please keep it free id doubt id buy it haha.

See bigger paid tordy on/offline, create your own badges would be awsome aswell. I would also like to see my friends team without the need to play them and if you see a player u like on there res bench u could like offer them a trade there and then.

Billy bob 6 5 years ago

U can change your team name when u want in stead of starting again!

Jim 5 years ago

I rekon they should include mini games such as crossbar challange and penalty shoot out to win prizes eg. Players coins contracts.

FerdiaR 5 years ago

f'in awesome idea jim

Matty87 5 years ago

I think the best idea would be a coin bonus for completing a team in your club eg. Getting all the players kits and badge. But only be rewarded once per club and bigger the club the bigger the bonus.

Jetski22 5 years ago

I think all of your ideas are really good. I had not thought of some of them but i now know how much they would improve the game. one idea i had was, like the in-form players every week, ea could release a few OUT of form players. So there normal rating would be lowered. This would give everyone the chance to get well known players they wouldn't be able to afford otherwise. or if they need 1 player to complete a squad, like i need Gerrard to complete Liverpool, but cant afford him. If there was a out of form version i would get him. What do you think?

warchild75 profile image

warchild75 5 years ago from Worthing, west sussex, england Author

@jetski22 thats probably the best idea out of all of them,yes you have a gerrard but he is only rated 84 coz he has been playing rubbish, and his stats are down.

Pierre 5 years ago


these are great ideas, but about the No 5%, if there was no tax, it would be far too easy for people with a lot of money to make profit, as making profit on a Messi is far easier than a low rated gold.Then there would be no stopping you once you got a bit of money and soon all traders would be super rich!

Gralton 5 years ago

Hey Warchild,i have been reading these hubs and they have really helped me out.As for the ideas i think a challenge system would be great, say you select a challenge of score two hatricks in 3 games online you win say 1000 coins.i think this would be a great idea as i would enjoy the challenge.And obviously the harder the challenge the bigger the pay out

warchild75 profile image

warchild75 5 years ago from Worthing, west sussex, england Author

@gralton very good idea, i like it a lot!!

xcfa 5 years ago

no more contract cards

Riley 5 years ago

they need contracts like cod. and a challenge system where when you get your 2000th goal or comething you get 6000 coins or something. deeper search as well. atleast add inform to the quality list. i'd also like a player skill rating taken into effect when you play online. stats tend to mean nothing when i play an all 80 team with godly fifa player and then i play a kid with ronaldo who i can beat 8-0. just sayin.

Great ideas warchild I would like it if u could play mini games such as crossbar challenge or a penalty shoot out to win extra coins, contracts or even players in online competitions

warchild75 profile image

Yeah sounds like a good idea, I just think there should be maybe one more way of winning coins other than matches or trading!!

xX SCOTTY Xx 5 years ago

Wat about like FIFA 7 they did a thing called break the wall were try had to hit the blocks for more points. So the more points you get the better stuff you get

Gus1410 5 years ago

I think they should make it so that players with history of playing with each other at a past club should have some chemistry, e.g. John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho at the moment would not have any chemistry between them but if this feature was in place then they would do because of their past connections at Chelsea,finally I agree that the 5% tax on trading should be taken off! At first when you're trading below 50,000 coins its not that noticable but when you're trading at 300,000 coins plus as I am now its ridiculously hard to make any profit whatsoever unless you go bargin hunting at 3 in the morning! thanks, great hubs by the way :)

Mark 5 years ago

There are a lot of good ideas here but some have been in there in some form or another before and not worked.

The contract/training/player packs I agree with 100 percent. Perhaps a MISC. pack as well for kits and such as well. Nothing is more frustrating than getting "rare" formation cards as your supposed good cards in a pack when it is obvious the main reason people buy packs are for the chance at good players. Seperate them out and let people have their own priorities.

Training cards can work. But make All ATTR cards extremely rare and only let one training card be applied per player with permanent effect in reverse. EG. Bronze players can only have gold training cards applied. Silvers for silver players and Bronze cards for gold players.

It then keeps the market interesting in terms of people wanting to go and buy Bronze training packs (if more choice in packs were to be offered).

Custom Formations were a massive problem in FUT 10. One that I would not like to see replicated in any future FUT. There has to be a point where we realise it is a game and about having fun rather than just winning.

Offline tournament multipliers need to be less harsh as well. What is the motivation to play well when your true performence coins wise is going to be halved by some multiplier that doesn't need to be there.

The only multiplier in place should be the DNF bonus one and there should be a greater awarness of the servers between when I have pressed quit, when the servers have failed and when my computer has lost connection to PSN/Live.

James  5 years ago

Hey just to let you know, I'm pretty sure the reason EA take the 5% is to reduce inflation of the market. Because when packs are bought new players are introduced to the marketplace so the value of players introduced must be about how much they take in commission. Aside from this I definitely agree with a more specific searching system, especially for managers.

TomZ 5 years ago

I really really really love the idea about no 5% tax.

But it wouldnt work due to noted reasons, however what if it had a price limit such as a sale over 100,000 is taxed 5% but lower sales from fledgling team builders have no tax

I have a few ideas that might work im not sure but, What if Packs could be won in tournaments instead of coins, i am not saying abolish the coin tournaments just offer an alternative to slaving over the trade pile or playing games nonstop

Also i reckon that a different type of game play would offer a change of scenary to the 11v11 format this could be part of the challenge area without ruining the 11 a side ideals Fifa has. for instance what about cuppies or wembley, i dont know what you call it where your from but, a game with multiple people all controlling only one player each to score for them self it would really emphasize the one man army approach many very skilled players like to go for when i play them in matches and it would really offer a change. also 5 a side or 7 a side maybe but these ideas dont have to apply to just UT. I personally would pick the player Jakub Blaszczykowski for cuppies.

One last idea,I know many players work good with players they befriend like i know that when they played for wisla krakow blaszczykowski and brozek where a lethal partnership but they have split from wisla now but i think theyre friend ship should stay and offer an ultimate chemistry between the players.

Pigster 5 years ago

Nice hub, not commented on your hubs in a while so hello again :)

OJ  5 years ago

The generations tournament would be awesome, because I myself have spent about 5000 microsoft points on buying packs and building up a squad, but then in the next edition , you pretty much lose it :/

And yes, they should also take off the 5% tax, its a waste of time and only annoying other UT players... Fix this EA!

N1ceGoals 5 years ago

I would like to see some changes in Ultimate team aswell. The main thing i would like to see is that when you build your ultimate team, you should be able to build up your chemistry as well. If I want for example 11 players from 11 different nations and leagues, I should still be able to get good chemistry after matches. You're restricted to make a Prem squad, Brazilian national team etc. now, and I think that sux.

Garbzz 5 years ago

These are fantastic suggestions and EA should really take them all into consideration... especially the generations one ;)

Andrew 5 years ago

UT Training! Think this could be useful. Especially when you've just assembled a new team. I'd quite like to see how they play together in a training game. Also obviously to try different players taking free kicks,corners and even creating set pieces to use later in the online matches.

Daren W 5 years ago

Hey Warchild that really was a fascinating hub you created and you made multiple good points that most certainly should be included in the latest release, hopefully someone in the right place heared your ideas... would you mind please taking the time to look at my own personal blog based entirely on ultimate team 11 and letting me know what you think... i have already entered one very useful way to get multiple packs of premium quality items on the opening day... so please take a look and please comment and let me know what you think... Many Thanks daren.

KMN 5 years ago

Many of these ideas are great, and I would like to see them all.

However I think that creating your own formation wouldn't work as players are created to like a certain formation.

-Friends leagues

-Diving option


-Gambling!!! Sounds awesome!!!

Luccio 5 years ago

Aw man, I didn't know we can't keep the team we have in FIFA 11 and bring it to 12. There's no chance that's gonna happen?

Dmurcier 5 years ago

Should be able to build chemistry. If I play a 100 games with Nilmar and Rooney, they should develop some type of chemistry.

profile image

MatthewJTimmins 5 years ago

Dmurcier, was thinking that aswell. They should do that for position and formation, make so e.g you play Ashley young in CM and getting the red boot, eventually he should move up to dark green. But shouldnt be able to be perfect otherwise you would get people being able to fit in all the best players into the team.

I think your ideas are brilliant i especially like the gambling one.Me and my friends always bet on games we play against each other and give coins to the winner.Also the tournaments with friends is a great one too.I think your Hubs are really good and i hope Ea take recognition of it.

Fifa 12 Blog 5 years ago

You have some awesome ideas for this years FIFA UT. I have a similar post on my FIFA 12 blog with most of the same stuff, but you defiantly added some things like, gambling coins, badge creator, and no EA tax. I think I actually mentioned the tax, but I doubt they leave that out.

I would like your input on my post about FIFA 12 Ultimate, and other FIFA 12 news at my blog here:
