There's A Petition For A New Feature To Be Introduced In FIFA 18
Every year, EA Sports make it their mission to improve FIFA games and make it even better than the previous game.
Of course, several glitches remain and you still find yourself throwing your controller at your TV when you concede a last minute but with the advancing of technology over the years, the FIFA games have come on leaps and bounds and the progress made is quite remarkable.
Here is the fastest XI that you can put together on FIFA 17:
FIFA 17 saw the introduction of 'The Journey' - where players had the chance to play as talented teenager Alex Hunter at their chosen club and take him to the highest level.
The feature went down a treat with players as it freshened up the game and provided the all-important interactive story mode that the game had perhaps lacked.
However FIFA enthusiasts want another mode introduced in FIFA 18 and there is even a petition for that game mode to be introduced.
Fans are calling for FIFA to create an online career mode that will combine the best of FIFA Ultimate Team and career mode - some fans feel as though the latter has been neglected in recent times.
Hundreds have signed the petition so far and the gamer behind the campaign that says that if he reaches 10,000 signatures, it will definitely make its way to the head honchos at EA Sports.
Here is his detailed explanation, where he makes it clear that he feels the FIFA franchise needs a mode that is similar to the 'Connected Franchise' which is used in Madden and NHL:
"The Career Mode is one of the most traditional and most used game modes in the FIFA-series of EA Sports. In recent years, the criticism of this mode has been getting louder. Other modes, such as "Ultimate Team" are increasing in popularity. Therefore, the Career Mode has been neglected in the opinion of the FIFA Community. Many players lose their interest in the Mode after a few seasons, because a real challenge is missing.
"Always playing against computer-controlled teams is not diversified, the opponents in the transfer markets are operating without a clear concept and due to player training and youth scouts, it is possible to create a international top team within a few years- regardless with which club and in which league you have started.
"Online modes such as "Online Season" or "Ultimate Team" offer the better challenge here. Nobody is playing for themselves. Instead, you have a constant competition, with other, globally active FIFA players. Transferring this core idea to the career mode, could bring fresh impetus in this mode.
"The goal of this petition is transferring the "Connected Franchise" mode, which is already available in the NHL or NFL games of EA Sports, to the FIFA career mode: "Connected Career"."
He also went in depth on how the mode would work:
"Everyone can select a team of their choice and manage their club from home. The significant difference: In the transfer market, there is now much more competition due to the other participants. In addition, the matches are no longer exclusively played against the computer but, depending on the number of participants, against other FIFA players who play the same career, but with a different team.
"Matches against managed clubs are played online against each other and matches against non-managed teams are played offline against the computer.
"Every participant has the opportunity to decide if he wants to be a manager or just the coach of the team. That means that also players who just want to play and don't want to create a team, can also participate in this career.
"The central settings of the career (match duration, skill level etc.) are adjusted by the league leader in advance. He creates the career and invites other players to join it - if he wants to. If not, it is of course still possible to play a career on your own. If you want other people to join you can decide whether you want to offer a private (with password) or a public (everybody can participate) career. In addition, you can choose between "Cloud" (online) and "Local" (only on one device). It is possible to add or remove participants to the career at any time during the current season.
"The league leader can also determine in which time period the career should progress. This setting can be changed during the season."
