Will FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Coins Never Be Sold to the Public

This week is not usual to both EA Sports and FIFA fans, it’s FIFA 15 Ultimate Team’s six years old birthday, which is the most popular game mode in FIFA 15 and cost gamers a lot of money to buy FIFA 15 Coins. EA Sports hopes that Ultimate Team will bring more happiness to all FIFA fans.

The company has already explained that it has chosen to introduce Price Range as a mechanic and to eliminate the transfer market from both the web and the mobile companion app in order to improve fairness and to eliminate the advantage that cheaters and coin farmers had over the rest of the player community.

EA Sports wants to also ensure all gamers that it has no plans to sell coins for Ultimate Team directly to players at the moment or at any point in the future.

The developer adds, “we believe the game benefits when the playing field is level for all and progress is achieved through playing matches, squad building, Transfer Market trading and making decisions with pack items.”

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is getting regular content updates at the moment and there are plans to tweak the value of the Price Range mechanics for the most important players almost weekly, with different values on each platform based on the evolution of the market.

Events and promotions will be used to give gamers more FIFA 15 coins

There are also no plans to increase the amount of coins offered for one match because that would lead to even more imbalances for the mode and would make it harder for players to get access to the most important players in Ultimate Team.

But EA Spots does suggest that there are promotions and other events, like custom made tournaments, that it will use in the near future to try and give honest players access to more money that they can use to improve their teams.

There are also plans to re-enable the transfer market for the web and the mobile companion app for Ultimate Team in order to make it easier for players to trade.

EA Sports is at the moment no saying whether it plans to make any other major changes to the mode for this version of the football sim or if it will focus on adding improvements for the version which will be part of FIFA 16.

FIFA 15 Share This Week’s Most Amazing 14 Goals

Like us, you probably think you’re half decent at FIFA 15. If so, you need to watch this video and immediately bring yourself down a peg or two.

We had already been forced to reassess our abilities on everyone’s favourite game, after we went to the UK FIFA 15 Championships and were left very pretty silly and insignificant by the eight best FIFA players in Britain.

Now, we have got hold of this EA Sports video, which showcases the best goals scored on FIFA 15 in the last week.Suffice to say, we now understand what is actually possible in the game – and realise that we are yet to get anywhere near it.

If anyone reading this has ever scored a goal as good as the nine in this amazing video, we have two things to say to you:

1. Well done, congratulations and welcome to the official list of Row Zed heroes.

2. For the love of God, send it in to us (via the form below) so we can share it with the world…

New feature to the Ultimate Team Transfer Market called Price Ranges

Once this feature has been activated, all FUT items (players, in-forms, consumables, and club items) in FIFA Ultimate Team will have a Price Range that sets the highest and lowest Fifa Coins prices that each item can be sold on the Transfer Market.

fifa 15

These new features are designed to:

  • Help FUT gamers understand the value of the players in their Club.
  • Make high-rated players more attainable for all FUT gamers and ensure a level playing field.
  • Further restrict illegitimate coin transfers on the Transfer Market.

Although the new FUT item Price Ranges will differ from current prices, their relative value to other player items on the Transfer Market will remain consistent in order to maintain a level playing field for everyone.

44

Here are some more important notes about Price Ranges:

  • All Price Ranges will be universal across Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
  • When you list an item on the Transfer Market, the range at which an item can be sold will appear. These price ranges will be set by the FIFA Team based on analysis of past Transfer Market prices.
  • Open bid transfers will be unavailable after Price Ranges have been activated. In order to list an item on the Transfer Market, you will have to set a “Buy It Now” price within the Price Range.
  • The Price Range for each FUT item will be set wide enough for you to still enjoy trading on the Transfer Market.
  • The Price Range for certain players may be adjusted in the future as we work to improve this feature over time.
  • New ‘in-form’ FUT player items will receive a Price Range upon release.

We believe the long-term benefits of this new change will make FUT more fun and fair for everyone.

fifa 15

We know that this is a significant change to FUT, and so we want your feedback. We are confident that, in the long run, the FUT community as a whole will come to appreciate the balanced benefits that this new feature will bring to all FUT players, but it’s important you let us know what you think.

In conjunction with these changes, the Transfer Market will remain inaccessible from the Web and Companion Apps.

Patriots Coach Invokes Science Deflated-football Dustup

8

When an erudite man tells you: “We all know that air pressure is a function of the atmospheric conditions,” you’re likely at a scientific lecture.

However, when the erudite man also tells you: “I am not a scientist,” you worry that you’ve stumbled onto the set of an antacid commercial.

Sadly, the team was then accused of providing underinflated balls during the first half of the game. (NFL rules have it that footballs must be inflated to between 12.5 and 13.5 psi, or pounds per inch.)

14

Today, Belichick stood up in a press conference (recorded by Mediaite) and claimed he’d personally done some research.

His conclusion? Climate change between the locker room, where the balls were allegedly inflated to an approved pressure of 12.5 pounds per square inch, and the field materially affected the firmness of the balls.

His lecture’s summation: “The atmospheric conditions, as well as the true equilibrium of the ball, is critical to the measurement.” Belichick underlined that the balls hadn’t been inflated in heated conditions.

Ergo, science proves that the Patriots are innocent. Or at least the Patriots’ science does.

The Surprises to the FIFA 15 Game

16

EA knows what it’s doing by ramping up the surprises to the FIFA 15 game and that means extra fun for all around as well as increased revenue. No mention of how much the company has to pay to license the names and images of the top players but it’s a good bet it’s well worth the money. This FIFA 15 Team Of The Week aka TOTW has the world’s top soccer players and the game works like a real game. Good graphics and gameplay, sound, and lots of extras for that big stadium event feel.

Fifa 15 Game

The roster of worldwide soccer pros shows that EA knows what the fans want. To see the top stars participating in the game is an acknowledgment to the game franchise. This should bring in new blood to the game and the online action should be something to behold to say the least. Just think of the big tournaments televised and fans going at it like the real pros. Could be stadium filling adventure like many of the top multiplayer video games.

Can You Connect Right Now

FIFA 15

We can confirm that for some reason, the EA servers are down today on January 22. We thought that the issue may be specifically related to FIFA 15, but we have since seen others having problems with the likes of BF4 and Madden NFL 15 servers as well.

If you are just about to play a round of FUT, you’ll have to wait as for the moment you can’t log into FUT. As far as we’re aware, there hasn’t been any prior indication that this was planned EA server maintenance today across all games, so hopefully we’re not talking about an attack of some sort.

10

The official EA FIFA account on Twitter mentions no planned maintenance, so hopefully EA are aware that the servers have just gone down globally and are working on a fix asap.

Odegaard: Real Madrid Was Best Option

16

A complete unknown only a year ago, Norwegian prodigy Martin Odegaard’s transfer to Real Madrid has set his fledgling career soaring towards the summit.

The 16-year-old midfielder had long been courted by some of Europe’s top clubs. Real, Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Liverpool were all, according to press reports, in the race to sign the teenager. Finally, a deal with the Spanish giants was announced Thursday, clearing the way for him to join a number of world stars in midfield.

“I felt it was the best option for the way I could develop both on a sporting level and in my personal life, so it had the best possibilities for me,” he said Thursday.

Before joining the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema after the summer he will spend the spring playing for Castilla — the club’s youth team, coached by Zinedine Zidane.

“My goal is quite simply to become a better footballer,” he said. “Whether I play with the first or second team makes no difference. It will come when it comes.”

A dream come true for a boy who just celebrated his 16th birthday on 17 December. The rapid turn of events will not be unfamiliar to Odegaard, who already has three international appearances for Norway to his name. When he joined the first team of Stroemsgodset, the club of his native city of Drammen, in April 2014, he became the youngest player to ever play in the Norwegian first division. A month later, he became the league’s youngest scorer.

Odegaard scored five goals and provided seven assists in his 23 games for the club. His prowess quickly drew attention as videos of the then 15-year-old running circles around his opponents created an online buzz that spread to the Scandinavian sports press. He was soon called up to the national team, where he broke new records. Odegaard became the youngest Norwegian international in history in August — only 15 years and 253 days old — and later the youngest ever to feature in a UEFA EURO qualifier, in October against Bulgaria.

“He has developed enormously in a short time. He brought down barriers that I think neither he nor anyone else imagined would fall,” Norway manager Per-Mathias Hoegmo recently told the Aftenposten daily. “His way of playing, his talent, his ability to make choices and think, all of this is impressive,” he added.

Madrid team-mates await with anticipation
His gifts have not gone unnoticed around Europe. Many of the continent’s greatest clubs have reportedly been interested in signing the Norwegian. Press reports linked Ajax Amsterdam with an imminent deal, while others said Bayern was first in line. The German team’s president, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said Odegaard was the “talent of the century”.

009

The teenager and his father Hans Erik — himself a former professional — toured several clubs over recent months to visit facilities and meet senior representatives. Hans Erik’s demand was for his son not to spend time with the reserves of a great team, but to train and play with the best. According to sports media, Zidane played a key role in convincing the Norwegian to start out at Castilla in the Spanish third division before joining the first team. His future team-mates already await his arrival with anticipation.

“A good player. I think he’s a young boy, he can still grow,” Ronaldo said of his new team-mate. “He has a good future ahead. So we must give him time to learn, to take the best decisions but I see a lot of potential in that player,” he added before picking up his third FIFA Ballon d’Or award.

“So we must give him time to learn, to take the best decisions but I see a lot of potential in that player. A good left foot.”

Balotelli Agent Raiola Latest to Enter FIFA Race

4

LONDON (Reuters) – Another wildcard has entered the pack of candidates challenging Sepp Blatter for the presidency of FIFA in May’s election — Mino Raiola, a soccer agent whose clients include Mario Balotelli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 47-year-old Dutchman with Italian roots needs to prove five football associations support his bid and that he has been active in football for at least two of the last five years before the deadline for submitting bids expires at midnight next Friday, Jan. 29.

“I’m getting violently sick when I think that Blatter could be re-elected,” he is quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph.

Raiola, agent of Barcelona's player Ibrahimovic, speaks to the media as he arrives at FC Barcelona's office in Barcelona

Former FIFA deputy secretary general Jerome Champagne of France and FIFA’s Asian vice-president Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan are considered the only serious contenders, although Champagne has admitted he does not yet have five nominations.

David Ginola, the former France international, announced his candidature last week at a press conference in London dismissed as a publicity stunt as it was organised by a betting firm.

The vote for the presidency takes place at the FIFA congress in Zurich on May 29.

FIFA’s Handling of The Case of Alpha to Be Recognized

2

Nice have shared a new Football Association statement supporting their case to be allowed to register recent signing Hatem Ben Arfa.

Ben Arfa, 27, capped 13 times by France, is yet to feature for his new side due to article 5.3 of FIFA’s transfer regulations, which prevents players representing three clubs in the same season.

The Frenchman spent time on loan at Hull this season and also appeared for Newcastle’s under-21 team, a match FIFA indicated last week “must be considered as official” and “must be taken into consideration in determining the application of article 5.3.”

4

That is in opposition to the view of the English Football Association, and Nice have called for a quick resolution after receiving written confirmation from the FA that: “We do not consider U21 games to be official matches.”

And a Nice statement on Thursday read: “As some people are obviously having trouble interpreting the English federation’s first letter sent at the start of January, OGC Nice appreciate that the FA has written another letter on Wednesday to dispel any ambiguity.

“It is perfectly explicit. Crucially, you can read therein the following phrase: ‘We do not consider U21 games to be official matches’. This confirmation leaves no doubt as to its interpretation, especially as the English federation has taken care to reinforce this position in its letter.

“We hope that with this clarification, the relevant bodies can now announce their decision without hesitation.”

Andre Soulier, president of the French league’s legal commission, asked the French Football Federation on Tuesday to obtain a “clear and firm” position from FIFA.
