FIFA 16 will see the debut of a player training feature with more than 30 different drills, which brings the possibility of countering this growth problem (if it still exists in FIFA 16) by helping players improve in specific areas and hopefully counteracting some of the problems we faced before.
The best player growth news would have been that EA have simply fixed it, rather than giving us a slight fix while failing to patch existing problems.
EA have sought to address this lack of realism by bringing pre-season tournaments to FIFA 16. There’s more to it than that, though, as any money you win from the tournament will be added to your transfer budget.
While this is a nice addition to the game and adds some much-needed immersion, there are other areas that I would rather were addressed first. What worries me most about the new announcements is that there is almost no mention at all of youth scouting, other than EA claiming they have made “fundamental improvements across transfers and scouting”.
Scout Reports – After scouting a player reports are available to you now for an entire calendar year before expiring vs three months in FIFA 15. Transfer Budget -Transfer budgets are now more realistically tailored to the club you’re using in Career Mode. Loans – Short loans have increased from three to six months and there is now an option to issue two-year loans. Friendly Subs – You will be able to issue an unlimited number of substitutions during friendly matches. More Realistic Transfers – While the transfer window is open, we have tuned the number of ‘high-profile’ moves by big players to better match the number of changes that typically happen in the real-world. Improved Player Transfer Values – We’ve addressed values of players to better match the real-world transfer market.
Carrying over a percentage of the previous season’s budget is also a welcome addition, as this was a very frustrating issue for a lot of players (myself included).
Of course, all of these minor changes are very promising on paper, and I look forward to seeing how they play out when FIFA 16 is released. That said, the player training feature could help to improve one of the most persistent problems over the past few years of FIFA games – player growth.
Teams will supposedly defend as a unit much better in FIFA 16, with improved AI able to track runs better and decide between covering space and closing down an attacker.
Finally, EA tell us that goalkeepers have been improved to make them less likely to be beaten by freakish long shots. FIFA 16 will see those interception improvements come to midfield as well, and it will affect both attack and defence. Speaking of Skill Games, FIFA 16 will have a new Basic level aimed at first-time players of the franchise.
For the first time, a FIFA game will finally feature women’s teams (albeit only 12 national sides. I love Shuttleworth Virtanan, I really do, but when was the last time you ever met a Spanish person with a name like that?
And why do goalkeepers spend their first few years growing in physical stats but not GK stats? But scout a defensive minded full back and you get a player with 50 sprint speed and terrible work rates. So we need more realistic player types – or at least player types that aren’t completely borked. Currently, youth players sit in your academy twiddling their thumbs for one or two years until you decide to promote them. How about getting a report every week from your chief scout telling you what the score was in that game and how each player performed?
For this to work we’d probably need a youth academy auto filled with players when you start a career mode, but that doesn’t sound like a huge demand to me. Then at least we’d have a reason to keep tabs on the youth academy and a reason to work hard on it. I know there are potential issues with changing the sponsors on your kit, but having the option to upgrade your stadium would be awesome.
Firstly, I’ve used this site for years without contributing, so Alex, thanks for your hard work! Did a career up to 2025 only for the physical stats of all my players at a new club plummet to single figures. Two months work ruined and gave up at that point despite several attempts at reloading the career. Getting a pattern of play going is often painful against a CPU that reads everything I do and the CPU keeper is really tough to beat. Defending is difficult as CDMs don’t track back and help out protecting the back four.
There needs to be a level between professional and world class as the jump in difficulty is still too great. I send a midfielder over to cover who then inexplicably runs off at a right angle to the direction I am sending him, seemingly out of my control. Ball goes into the box from the now unchallenged winger, striker scores with bullet header to far corner.
I’m at the end of the January transfer window, get to the end of it apparently without incident.
But then check my squad at the beginning of February only to find my star 83 rated defender, who has been injured throughout the window, has disappeared not only from my squad but off the game.
I quit the career mode go to my profile and delete everything that I’ve saved over the last year, the whole thing.

Want to join the the community of teachers and practitioners who write for About Meditation? Predictably, Ultimate Team took the prime slot, but it was genuinely refreshing to see career mode getting some decent air time. So let’s have a look at what they revealed, what they didn’t, and what it might mean for career mode in FIFA 16. Youth players get promoted as slow weaklings, and 10 years down the line they’re still slow weaklings.
That winger full back with 50 stand tackling could work on his technique, thereby getting better in an area that was poorer than it should have been. You can only train five players at a time, so if you’re having widespread growth problems then it may not be enough. What we need is a scenario where young players start out with decent physical stats and grow in a more natural way where their technique improves over time, rather than coming out of the academy with 56 sprint speed and 87 dribbling. In FIFA 15, for example, you play three friendly matches before the season gets underway, but there’s very little linking these games – you will likely play three teams from completely separate countries, meaning there’s no sense of your club embarking on a pre-season tour of, say, Germany.
Before each season kicks off, you’ll be invited to take part in three tournaments based around the world (there are nine in total, but you’ll have a choice of three each pre-season). You may already know what your best team and formation are, but the financial incentive means that pre-season tournaments have a real, solid reward on offer alongside gaining a greater insight into your squad dynamics. The scouting system needs a whole raft of changes (more on that later), while there are still plenty of gameplay issues that need addressing. We were all heavily disappointed when it transpired that FIFA 15’s scouting system was nearly identical to that of FIFA 14. Does it mean that we’ll end up with scouted playmakers who have insane mental stats but poor technical stats? Also, a percentage of the remaining budget from the previous season will carry over to the next. Being able to sign free agents outside the transfer window is obviously a useful addition and adds a nice realistic touch.
I’m also looking forward to seeing more realistic transfers, although this should probably be taken with a pinch of salt as it’s something EA promise every year. Commentators will pick up on developing story lines and notable player performances, while also covering transfer rumours and player debuts.
I doubt there has been enough time for the FIFA 16 developers to fix every problem from this year’s game, and every year there are elements that stay unchanged from the previous year’s edition.
Yet it will not mean much if EA haven’t addressed the numerous problems that have affected player growth in the past – poor physical stats in youth players that never improve, mispositioned players with poor stats for their positions, and more.
Defenders will be more agile, able to turn more quickly and react to opponents’ dribbling moves in order to keep them under control. Keepers will backpedal and be able to track the ball better when it is struck from distance, reducing the likelihood of you being beaten by a long range wonder goal.
Players in the box may decide to run deep or go to the near post, giving you more options when you’re out wide.
The FIFA Trainer will put you in a match situation and provide visual hints and advice on what to do in any given situation.
Are they spending too much time in the gym and not enough on the training ground or playing youth matches? You have to search physically strong, which often gets you slow forwards with great tackling, or search technically gifted and get slow forwards with 40 stamina. If you find a physically strong central midfielder with high potential, it’s entirely possible they’ll end up with the Complete Defender, Midfielder and Forward specialities. This may need a larger overhaul than fixing physical growth but it’s something that’s completely messing up the youth scouting system. Until that time it’s a borefest and you end up completely forgetting about the players you have already found because what do they do for most of the month? I don’t mean having to play youth matches in addition to first team games, but how about having a youth squad league table, and every week your youth team plays another team from that league? How about your scout letting you know who had been progressing well in the youth league and could be ready for promotion?
The players’ quality would depend on the team you are, so York City will have an auto-filled academy far inferior to Manchester City’s. I appreciate this is probably a longer term goal but it’s something a lot of us have been crying out for for years.
Who wants to take Plymouth Argyle to the Premier League and see them lining up at home against Chelsea in a stadium that can house 10,000 people? Make sure you leave you ideas in the comments below and let’s see if we can get a list together. We seem to be making a difference here, so let’s get our ideas together and see if we can change career mode for the better. I think it only fair that I warn all that are contemplating buying FIFA 16 that they should only do this if they are using a next gen console. In reality speed and agility are often where younger players ( especially attacking) stand out, and it’s their strength and technique that grows over time, not the other way around.
Although it’s good (cheaty) way of finding players (save game, accept offer, view all players and note those of interest, then reload) these arrive too frequently and just become annoying after a while. The passing is better than 2014 but players’ agility and ball control is still poor and acceleration is still unrealistic. Take time to explore and contemplate these profound words from spiritual masters, teachers, and guides.
Now, more than ever before, we can share the incredible diversity and power of spiritual traditions from around the world. Contemplating the words of a spiritual teacher is a time-honored way to access your own deeper self.


When your intention is strong and you relish the opportunity to sit in meditation, that is a great gift. It seems that this year EA have based a lot of their career mode changes on community feedback, and a lot of the new features are ones that have been requested for years. A player may be mispositioned (particularly so with full backs, who are either mispositioned wingers or centre backs) and so will be weak in areas important to his position – a mispositioned winger playing at full back could have 50 stand tackle but 75 finishing, for example. I also want to know exactly what areas can be improved – can players get faster and stronger, or improve their vision?
Further undercutting the realism was the fact that you were still limited to three substitutions per game, despite the games being friendlies, which should allow you unlimited substitutions.
The idea is you’ll get a chance to test out formations and players and play against decent opposition, all in a much more realistic environment than isolated friendlies played against random opposition. I’m genuinely glad that EA have seemingly fixed pre-season, but I can’t help feeling there should have been greater priorities. Will it still be impossible to find strikers when you search for the ‘Attacker’ player type? It means that now you could quickly bring in a replacement if a key player gets injured outside the transfer period. Key stats will be picked out both in commentary and in-game graphics (presumably information in the top corners of the screen), while everything is referenced within the context of the league you are playing (such as how important the game is if you’re in a relegation scrap, I would imagine). EA need to have made significant changes under the hood to improve player growth, in addition to the introduction of player training. Players will have more control over tackles, and will be able to change the length of a slide tackle or make their players stop and get up mid-tackle, making them less likely to be taken out of the game. You’ll be able to decide when your player takes their first touch, allowing them to feint, change direction and perform skill moves without touching the ball. Players will be given two options that should help improve their understanding of how to better compete in actual matches, not just in the isolated Skill Games settings. The scouted names were fine when the game came out and an update broke them, so I’ve got a lot of hope that this can be fixed. As time goes on and we scout more, we can replace these players with ones we’ve scouted ourselves. I eagerly awaited the arrival of my FIFA 16 (for the PS3) on the release date, imagine my disappointment to find that none of the new features are included, there are no pre-season tournaments, no player training, nothing new in the scouting mechanism. Job offers are minimal and 99% of job applications are rejected even if you’ve exceeded the expectations of your own club in recent seasons. Taking time to slow down and consider the words of a more advanced practitioner can help catalyze the inner conditions for meditation. If you are a more experienced meditator, read our empowering article on The 5 Hidden Signs of Your Success.
Whether you want to relax, stimulate creativity, gain enlightenment, or cultivate compassion and mindfulness, we help you learn how to let go. So while scouting in FIFA 16 probably will not be an exact knockoff of FIFA 15’s scouting system, we have very little information to go on. Will it still be ridiculously difficult to find a realistic full back (rather than a mispositioned winger or centre back) ? The idea is you can dummy in one direction and then explode in the other, giving you an edge over defenders.
For clubs that don’t have named and rendered stadiums, surely this wouldn’t be too hard to implement. As far as I can tell the only changes are different music, some changes to commentary and the only truly new feature is some kind of advice on passes and movement from a trainer whilst actually playing a game, which is a good addition if you are just coming to FIFA for the first time, however, for more seasoned players it’s just a distraction. I liked it when various alternative positions were offered to managers in the summer – I considered that more realistic than the current set up. Fast winger full backs end up with amazing technical stats so they can be played pretty much anywhere. I’ve also found that if you DO join a new club towards the end of the season, (even when the season is over) you can be sacked for not meeting the objectives of your predecessor when the season actually finishes, without having played a game!
He further adds, “Important part of mindfulness is reestablishing the connection with our body and sensations it experiences. This means waking up to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the present moment”In our daily fast paced lives, it is easy to stop noticing the world around us be detached with the way our body feels or experiences. We end up being caught in our thoughts and not noticing how those thoughts is driving our emotions and behavior in the present moment.
Most often these thoughts are of incidents that have happened in the past or anticipation about the future. Mindfulness practice teaches awareness, to be aware of our thoughts, whatever they may be and be fully present in the moment.Mindfulness is a form of meditation, where in you are practicing to be fully aware and focused in moment. It would seem very obvious or too simple to have this awareness or being in full control of your thoughts, but it is not. A very good analogy is standing on the curb and watching the cars pass by, where cars are your thoughts. As a simple task, try closing your eyes and just try not to think anything or focus on your breathing.
You will notice that in the span of 5 minutes, your mind would have wandered off into different thoughts before you even realized or were aware of. Over the decades, we are trained to live our life, chasing future or pondering over the past.
Ironically only thing that we have in our control is this “moment”, Past has already happened and future is unknown. Yet, we forget this and spend days, months, years clogging our mind with contemplations, analyses, worries and speculations.Mindfulness is a form of meditation where we try and live the present, with a simple goal of “being aware”. Mindfulness meditation is grounded on rational and scientific plane and now there are many studies and trials that have shown to have a significant impact on various issues like OCD, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, etc.Whatever maybe your goal, dedicating 10 minutes of your daily life to a formal practice of mindfulness meditation can greatly bring that mental peace and awareness.
