With the help of our readers and EA, we had an opportunity to interview Mat Prior, Producer of UEFA Champions League 2006-2007.
Operation Sports: What are the improvements being made to it? Can we expect something much more fine tuned with a smarter AI than we saw on FIFA 07?
Mat Prior: Absolutely – numerous facets of gameplay have been worked on and improved. Player collisions, for example, were something we felt detracted from the gameplay experience previously so that is something we fixed as well as many other things.
A lot of work was also done ensuring that player attributes worked perfectly and that differences were noticeable. In Ultimate team mode the gameplay cards and team chemistry are key elements so it was important for us that if a user had a poor team with low team chemistry they really noticed it.
As the user progresses through the game and gradually builds a better and better team with higher team chemistry they will really notice a big difference in the way their team plays. It was also important that when a user plays a gameplay card that boost or lowers attributes that the effect is noticeable.
