EA has updated us officially in a post on their forums about upcoming security measures being taken to protect FIFA players online in the hugely popular FUT mode:

Quote:
"Hello, FIFA fans.

Today we’d like to share a few in-game changes that are coming to FUT 15 as part of our ongoing initiative to improve security and the FIFA 15 experience. This is related to our recent article regarding coin selling and buying: http://help.ea.com/en/article/fighti...can-stay-safe/.

Trade Offers
We’ll be removing Trade Offers from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.

Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins. Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts.

This will also address “bid bumping”, where people would try and trick others into bidding far more than they wanted for a player item.

It was a tough decision, but this is the right step towards improving security, showing cheaters the red card, and keeping FUT safe for all FIFA fans.

Transfer Targets
The maximum number of Transfer Targets in FUT 15 will be set 50 player items after utilizing the EAS FC unlockable boosts. This means that you will be allowed to bid on up to 50 players at a time.

Origin Login Verification
Origin Login Verification is an extra layer of security that protects your FUT account from being accessed outside of your home console and PC. In order to ensure increased security for our fans, Origin Login Verification will be mandatory in the near future before you access the FUT 15 Web App. Find out how to set it up here: <http://help.ea.com/en/article/fifa-1...-verification/ >

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all matters regarding security in FUT. Stay tuned on Twitter for any further information, and thanks for your understanding as we work to improve your experience with FIFA 15.

Thanks,
The FIFA Team"

The handheld mobile version of FIFA 15 this year is getting a slimmer focus, but its one which you probably won't mind since you were already playing Ultimate Team on your handheld device anyways.

This year, EA is offering both FIFA Ultimate Team or Matches of the Week as the way to play FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Mobile. EA is also bringing new ways to play the game, which include Quick Simulation, Classic or Casual Controls, and new controller support.

Here's some info straight from EA:
  • Quick Simulation will make its debut on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, giving fans complete control of their squad while a match plays out quickly on your tablet or phone. Fans will be able to control the mentality, effort, and approach of your entire team in a managerial experience during a Quick Simulation match. It puts fans in the manager’s seat and gives them an aerial view of the pitch so you can see player trends and adjust on the fly.
  • This season, fans can choose from Casual or Classic Controls - with all new through-ball and tactical dribbling options. Through ball will allow you to send your teammates through on goal with a tap of a button or tap twice on the screen to activate Tactical Dribbling - give your players greater control on the ball.
  • And to improve the gameplay experience, fans now have the option to use a number of different controllers in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team (mobile). The following controllers are compatible with FIFA 15 Ultimate Team on mobile devices. List here.

It’s no surprise that Madden Ultimate Team is back for another year in Madden 15. This mode, which started way back in UEFA Champions League 2006-07 has become a required feature in all of EA’s annualized sports titles.

If you are brand new to Madden Ultimate Team (MUT), it’s essentially a trading card game, fantasy football, and Madden all rolled into one crazy-addicting mess. Open virtual packs, build a team, and ten play. Your results, along with other tasks, earn you coins to buy more packs. It's a continuous cycle that gives you the thrill of having the chance to pull that card. Of course, there’s the option to spend real money on those virtual packs as well.

This year, the process has been streamlined and the single-player offline mode has been given a lot more content. But, as always, the impulse to buy new packs and upgrade your team is at the core of MUT.

Madden 15 tips don’t always have to be so difficult. In our latest technique, we show you how you can stifle those pesky Mesh concepts that are running rampant online, by making one easy adjustment before the snap.

The Mesh concept is brutally effective at punishing players that like to play man coverage, but it’s also pretty darn good against most zones, too. However, there is hope! With a little bit of ingenuity we’ve discovered a fairly universal technique for defenses with four-down linemen that will slow down the effectiveness of the Mesh, if not shut it down entirely.
