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!!!!
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.
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.
