FUT 15 Wish List

You the Futhead community have spoken and after 1300 comments we can finally reveal your official community Wish List for FUT15, and there are some cracking ideas for EA to mull over as they make their final FIFA 15 plans. 

A huge thank you from myself (Dave), Tom, Dan and Chris for all your contributions to the Wish List, even those that didn't make the final cut. Over 1300 comments is a monumental response and above all else, you may all have helped to shape your FUT experience not only this year, but in years to come too. 

Here's your official Futhead community FUT 15 Wish List.

Wager Matches

By far the most suggested wish in our FUT 15 list was of course the FIFA YouTuber staple - Wager Matches. There were an insane amount of likes for anyone mentioning wagers but also plenty of neat suggestions around how the pre-match "lock-in" could work, and which items you should be allowed to bet. But, there was also a sense of knowing sadness too, because as we know introducing gambling in to FIFA opens up a whole world of legal issues, and due to the age rating that EA pitch the FIFA series, its with regret that your number one wish has to be filed in the "very unlikely" category.

Search Options for In Form and TOTY

Ultimate Team's Transfer Market searching has come on an awful long way in the last two years with FUT 14 especially, offering numerous upgrades on how we can best navigate to the cards up for sale. Player Name searching was the marquee addition but from your wishes the next area for improvement was clear. The ability to search the Transfer Market explicitly for In Form and TOTY cards, and we couldn't agree more.

FUT Friendlies to Not Effect Player Contracts and Fitness

We'll be honest, we don't play that many FUT friendlies but for those of you that do your main frustrations were clear. At the end of the day, as well as being a bit of fun between friends, these matches are ultimately about experimentation too, seeing which players  gel and which system you think works best. So to have the game punish that creativity by taking away player contracts and fitness in a non-competitive environment seems counter-intuitive. No more please EA.

National Kits and Badges 

EA's removal of the home/away kit restrictions this year enabled an almost infinite number of kit combinations but you guys want more. And as well as club allegiance the Futhead community want to be able to nail their national pride to the mast too, and as all the kits and badges are already in the game. It's time to bring them to FUT.

Expand Manager Tasks

I think we're all in agreement that Manager Tasks in FUT are a great way to start your team building journey but you guys want much more, and we had some excellent ideas on this topic. Many of you are keen on the addition of Weekly Tasks to add a bit more variety to the mix but what you were also interested in were much longer term goals too. FUT doesn't really have an "end-game" as such to aim for, but long term challenges like creating a full IF team, or to score 500 goals could help to extend the experience over the many months we play for. The rewards for achieving these end-game tasks should be handsome too.

Make Generation Squads Playable

Most peoples opinion of Generation Squads is "what's the point?" And whilst they are a nice reminder of good times past, they don't really add much, if any value to the mode. However, if they were to become playable just against friends and perhaps for no coin rewards at all, they'd suddenly become an exciting option to properly relive the fond memories of our own FUT history. Shotgun FIFA 09 Ronaldinho.

Weak Foot and Skill Upgrades on In Form's

It's impossible for EA to get every players stats right, but In Forms are ultimately their chance to right the games wrongs when in the real world, players are doing serious damage on the pitch. All we get at the moment are moderate stat boosts but you guys would like to see Weak Foot and Skill upgrades added as well for those few that deserve it most.

Legends on Playstation

There's no doubt a hefty wadge of cash securing FUT 14's Legends to Microsoft's platforms but you guys want to see parity between the consoles and quite rightly too. We also pay the same price for the game, and we all love and hate it the same amount. EA should always try to provide the same FIFA experience regardless of hardware preference and Legends should without doubt come to Playstation. (And PC)

Practice Mode for FUT

As friendly matches (see above) are taking away Contracts and Player Fitness what about a Practice Mode for FUT instead? Somewhere that you can freely experiment with different formations, styles, chemistry and players until you find what you deem to be the perfect mix. It would be great to have an open sandbox environment for FUT and if changes to friendly matches are a non-starter, maybe this is the alternative.

Cards to Change Work Rates

Player Work Rates often cause much debate within the Futhead community and in many cases players with the right work rates, in the right positions will often outplay more talented cards. Having a modifier to allow you to tweak player work rates would be a really interesting idea and lets face it, they'd be infinitely more interesting to experiment with than attribute cards. (Which can probably depart)

Bronze, Silver and Gold Seasons

The Seasons concept has been in FUT for two years now and whilst the jump to 10 Divisions was welcome, the current format isn't really engaging with what is FUT's core purpose - squad building. However, a Seasons mode with specific Bronze, Silver and Gold requirements would add a whole new dimension to the game mode and perhaps "featured" Seasons with really specific entry requirements could be released periodically too.

Gameplay Coin Boosts

FUT's general gameplay style can be frenetic and very samey but one way you'd like to see variety in style rewarded is with coin boosts for specific on-the-pitch actions. We had lots of great suggestions but the general consensus was that the boosts have to be for fairly difficult tasks to make sense. Like, scoring an overhead kick, nut-megging a defender, scoring a perfect hattrick, or scoring off the crossbar.

Design Your Own Kits and Badges

If EA genuinely want Creation Center to become a prominent part of FIFA, deploying it in FUT to allow the design of custom kits and badges would certainly be the way to do it. There'd be the predictable rise of the phallic shaped "Knob United" of course, but among the nonsense there'd be some incredible artistry too. Letting the community list their own creations on the Transfer Market, could make this one a real game changer.

    Hey, EA, do you think next year you could find some other way to really fucking ruin FIFA. I mean, you've been working on it's demise for so long, it would be a shame to let all your hard work go to waste.

    would be nice for your teams chemistry to go up the more the players play together, also specialised chemistry increases for players in your team who link really well together, for example if you had Ozil making plenty of assists for walcott, that would then increase there chemistry when playing together.

    heres what i think there should be other than better servers and better packs:

    1) more legends such as Zidane, Maradona, Ronaldo, Cruyff, George Best, Roberto Carlos, Beckham (maybe too recent though), and Beckenbaur.

    2) no chemistry because we wouldn't have to face practically the same squads every single match.  the only downside to this is completely OP teams with all legends and TOTY and MOTM and TOTW players.

    3) get rid of ea 5% tax because NOBODY BENEFITS

    4) be able to trade with players who aren't your friends

    5) possibly no contracts or fitness OR fitness cards and contracts last much longer

    Dear EA

    I feel that I have allowed this game of frustration to go on long enough as the amount of defects and faults in your game has led me and thousands of other FIFA players to deem this FIFA game a BAD FIFA game. 

    In this heartfelt letter, I aim to voice what every other FIFA player has to bear with in this defective game and I furthermore strive to exactly pinpoint the problems of your game as i'm SICK and TIRED of THE CRAP!

    1. Pace Issues- I understand that you have attempted to rectify the overpowering pace issue with making the acceleration and touches of the player on the ball less perfect and more realistic, thus reducing the chance of a player with a higher sprint speed to breeze past the defender without so much as a "how do you do?" But this year? You seem to have made the pace too underpowered. I know everyone agrees with me when i say "How the hell is Mertesacker keeping up with Willian by means of 1 tap of the 'push and pull' button? It's just not right EA. Oh; and instead of just letting the player get pulled to the ground in the penalty box without a foul? Why don't you try and make the player on the ball actually evade the challenge, using the attackers agility to get free from the push and pull trap. Fix the underpowered pace issue

    2. Offside calls- I also understand the fact that you have tried to preserve our players' energy by not letting them run 25 yards to the through ball before the referee blows his whistle for the offside. But this year it's ridiculous. Say my opponent tries to play a ball over the top to an attacker who happens to be offside and my defender manages to head the ball away from the offside player before it gets to him thus triggering a counter attack on my part THEN THE WHISTLE BLOWS? WHAT FOR? IT DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE NEAR THE OFFSIDE GUY! You are drastically slowing down the game and making it tedious and repetitive whilst we have to sit through the replays and for what? This time Ea, please try and blow the whistle if it actually touches the guy and stop the play early if it's a through ball that needs to be run on to. That isn't too hard to accomplish is it?

    3. Player selection- We've reached one of the aspects of FIFA that has angered me more than anything. 

    (i) I expect to be able to switch to whatever player i want when there are 2 of my attackers running onto a through ball, rather than consigning me to the one attacker that is offside and giving the ball away through an offside free kick.

    (ii) When my opponent is sprinting towards my goal, i expect the right defender to be selected-the defender right in front of the attacker so i can choose weather i want to stand off him or go in for the tackle, NOT the guy behind the attacker thus making me lose control of all the defenders and allowing my opponent to waltz through my defense and ultimately scoring a goal.

    (iii) It would also be nice if you were to allow me to switch the players receiving the ball from a cross, because i think i can see a better opportunity to score than a lousy computer can. Do you know how many times i've whipped in a cross to a free man at the back post but having the man at the near post selected? Then the ball hitting the man at the back post in the chest unable to score the goal he was destined to due to the fact that that the man at the near post was selected for no apparent reason followed by the goalkeeper grabbing the ball from the paralyzed man? Fix it!

    Bring back 11 players in Pro Clubs drop-in matches...

    Long distance passing- Do you know how many matches i've played where these sad lowlifes are unable to score a decent goal of their own that they attempt the notorious 'straight from kick off goal'? Its more frustrating than anything when i work a fully earned goal to straight away have my opponent score with that cheap trick? I once played a game where i scored 5 goals all of my own, no tricks, to having my opponent score 5 goals each time from the cheap long ball technique straight from the kick-off THEN having a header scored by Di Natale against Vertonghen in the 90th minute? Pathetic. Please reduce the Overpowered effect of these disgusting long distance passes and actually give the "passing" stat of each player some meaning. Not everyone's long passing is that perfect.

    Bring back team play...

    Goalkeepers- EA, have you ever noticed how overpowered chip shots are this year? Do you know why? I'll tell you why. The goalkeepers never do what they are told. If i take my goalkeeper out of goal and instantly retract him, why is it that he stays out like an absolute drunk, allowing him to get chipped by Aubameyang? And when THEY DO actually decide to go back towards their line like i asked, why is it that they seem to be taking a stroll by the riverside? The goalkeepers don't work hard enough EA, They need to really start making an effort to save those lobs that are 5 inches from their head instead of walking backwards and watching in awe as the ball floats into the back of the net. Goalkeepers aren't that lazy in real life. Fix up the goalkeepers=Fix up the bullcrap.

    Goal conversion rates- Finally, i want to talk about the amount of shots converted into goals whilst playing against opponents online. I, alongside many I'm sure, have played those matches where we had 10 shots on target and only converting 1 goal with the likes of Aguero and Van persie with all very decent shots whereas our opponent has 4 shots on target and converting 4 goals with the likes of Ibarbo and muriel upfront. It's just not fair EA. Please, don't plague us with these fake saves by the likes of Marchetti or Sirigu followed by a sloppy effort by the likes of Neuer and Buffon. Make this game a game of skill and not luck.

    Whoever actually read this far, I give you my greatest gratitude. I made this list because i love the game of FIFA but there is too many defects in this years version which hinders my ability to enjoy the game like I should. 

    I urge all who read this to give it an upvote-not because i'm a karma whore- but because i want EA to see this and rectify their game so that I can enjoy FIFA again...Thank you.

    i realise that I am a bit late joining this conversation and although I have read through a lot of comments, I have not read them all so this may have been said by someone else. Would it not be a great idea to have a fully customisable virtual pro? That way, it would make the game more interesting in the longer term and you could move him around the pitch to shore up any weak areas (such as RB or LB)

    make some players, worth 400k, or so. We need a better option of expensive players when making teams, we only have ronaldo, messi, bale, ibra, bribery, robe, aguero and neymar and hazard, then the best is worth 100k, they should really upgrade some players and make some decent players. Like maybe sturridge to 85 rated, 100k, and then suarez to 91, 500k? please also make more ideas for cards, and release them weekly not just tote, bc in like midyear of the game it gets really boring

    Couple of Suggestions after playing the game since FIFA 10,

    They must remove chemistry, just remove it and judge Top Squad based on Rating ad the price of players, its called ultimate team to build the ultimate team, not remake a BPLteam or Serie A, then go call it BPL ultimate team. I really tired of chemistry

    Also they should always have 15k packs in the store not just 7.5k and 5k, in nhl they have all 3 always in the store.

    EA Tax should be removed, they already rob us enough, jesus christ those stingy bastards

    We should be able top buy fifa points or coins with EASFC coins, make the rate 1000 fifa points per 5000 EASFC coins have 30k EASFC points this way I can get 6k fifa points, it would keep everyone motivated to save up besides spending money

    And finally, which must come into place,  the marketing of packs, in the game when it first start packs should be worth, 7.5k, but then when ozil goes from 100k, in start to now 30k, the pack prices should then drop to 4k or so, this way we don't lose money to bad. Bc i had 3000 fifa points, my best player I for was vidic, decent player but he only go for 5.8k, so lower the pack prices so we can make a decent profit even when the market is down the drain.

    EA, please take these things into consideration when making FUT 15
