FIFA 14 News Post


EA Sports has revamped the team management in FIFA 15, with quite a few ways to manage squads and team sheets across all game modes.

Customize up to six different Team Sheets per club and alter your strategy based on your next opponent, the changing tactics in-game and fitness of your players. Get your favorite team playing the way *you* want them to play.

Team Sheets are available in Career Mode, Match Day (Kick-Off), Online Friendlies, and Tournaments.

Instructions

Up to five attacking and defending player instructions can be applied to each of the ten outfield players. These instructions let you manage the attacking runs and defensive positions players take on the pitch and gives you deeper customisation options for how your team sets up.

Formations


Preset formations for any of your custom squads and pick the best to take on your next opponent.

Roles

Set roles like captain, set-piece and penalty takers for each of your squads.

Tactics


Set a default Team Tactic to each of your Team Sheets so your gameplan is locked before hitting the pitch. Or go deeper and add custom tactics to any of your line-ups.

What do you think of the new team management screens?

So if I'm getting this right, I can have my "A" and "B" team squads set up with different tactics?

If that's right, this is a monster - awesome change. Wonder how it will affect the custom tactics projects?

I like this, a lot.
But, so much wasted screen space by having half the screen be the team logo. Pointless.

I've been hoping for the ability to save customized squads and formations for a while. A great addition!

Finally, I have always hated Fifa's team management screen compared to the other game.

I wonder what "adjust position" means in the picture at the top. Maybe you can now change a player's position to whatever you want. Probably not but it would be nice.

Let's hope that we'll be getting more additions to FIFA like this. I appreciate what they tried to do with the GTN last year improvements like this are what he game desperately needs.

Definitely liking the change, it was long overdue imo. Also I like the hexagon addition, reminds me of old PES and found it much better when comparing players than just players' overall rating.

I think having your player/team stats and upcoming opponent info/stats there would be great. That would be the best use of that space.

Maybe the other screen belongs to the CPU/2P

I can see that in a kick off, but in manager mode that makes no sense.

I wish they just took PES's click and drag feature for formations. Would be so much easier.
 
# 12 ZO @ 08/11/14 04:28 PM
I missed the part about applying tactics to each player individually instead of just the team as a whole. That is a huge improvement. I just hope it works well. If it works correctly, that can change the game immensely.

The same million dollar question exists here as it does with other EA sports games, will the CPU use/adjust tactics as well?

Good to see, this was an area sorely in need of an upgrade. I like the idea of individual player instructions and want to know what the five options are (or is it 10 w/ 5 attack & 5 defend?). What I really want to see is the ability to switch between setups during a match. We had quick tactics, but a no-pause way to switch formation/tactics/instructions at once would open up the tactical side of things.

This looks amazing. Love to set up tactics and squads utilizing the bench and youth called up from the academy.

Here they are:

All welcome additions but like a few others have mentioned. A drop & drag system would be great as would the ability to save more slots. Hopefully the CPU will get an upgrade in the Managerial AI department because FIFA is very predictable.

I nearly cried when I saw it earlier today. I read, "Team Management Details," got excited, and when I read we'd finally have different lineups, etc. I thought my eye's were going to water up.

I've been waiting for this type of change. It's now going to be difficult for me to play 14 knowing what's coming.

Couldn't be happier. This (to me at least,) is one of the final major missing pieces of Fifa.

Can't Wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
