FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
The new FIFA 16 will include women teams.

I wonder how many women play the game. I also wonder how "strong" these teams and players will be. I mostly wonder WHY they even did this.

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
I know which teams I'm not playing with. Funny thing is you know the developers are going to make the attributes comparable to the male teams. This is PC pandering gone full retard.

Will they release data showing how rarely anyone plays as those teams?

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
Plenty of female characters in games who are as strong or stronger than male counterparts. Why is this any different?

EA games saw another market to exploit and went with it. I won't buy a game with EA's hands on it regardless of some PC pandering. They're poison.

First thing I thought when I read this earlier was:

From a marketing standpoint - brilliant. Let's be real.

The Madden/FIFA/NBA2K type audiences are the same every year, the key is getting new people to buy the game with new features, modes, special editions, etc. And they just made the best possible promotion they could.

So what?

Just don't play with them; everyone plays with only 10% of the teams and that's being generous.

It's gonna be great. Apparently they've updated the stadium crowd engine to simulate the excitement of watching unattractive girls play football.

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
I remember the outrage a few years ago when secret recording emerged of two commentators discussing in private their belief that it was unsuitable for a women to referee a game played by males. No surprises that Andy Gray, the commentator, was sacked by SKY Sports by popular demand after the lynch mob came after him.

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
Just another proof that women hate that men can have fun without them, so they have to find a way to be included somehow. I'm pretty sure most female football players (ha ha) do it not because they like it, but because they want to prove to men that they can. Same thing goes for military.

I honestly doubt the kind of girls who play console video games are going to start buying FIFA or sports games just because they include women players.

What is more likely is that SJWs in EA (which is full of them according to one of my best friends who worked for EA) whined about it and got them added.

...and within 10 days of its release somone will have created a mod where the female teams will play naked or in bikinis. The only sad part is that 20 years ago the game developers would have included that mod as unlockable feature in the game itself.

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
Prediction - this thread will turn into exactly what the "Kung Jin in Mortal Kombat is Gay" thread did. I'm surprised no one has posted a Maxim spread that a female soccer player yet.

I'm curious as to how many people here are actually into sports games? EA games in particular?

EA is seriously anal about accurate player stats, meaning that a woman's team has about as much chance of beating Barcelona as Yale does of beating the Alabama Crimson Tide in the NCAA football series.
Fifa15 has over 600 teams. They are obsessed about bringing the widest range of football representation possible and including female players is a great way to go.

Personally - I'm buying FIFA16 because the series is fantastic, I recently got a PS4 and could use a great soccer game, and I could play as every team imaginable, even though when me and my buddies play "serious", it will end up mostly being Barcelona, PSG, Bayern Munich and Chelsea because that's how it's been for years. And MLS. You gotta love a virtual MLS faceoff

But I know the "women are evil and suck at sports and are taking over everything" circle jerk is very important around here. So let's get back to it

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
I would actually be behind this if the teams were given a fair ranking compared to men.

However that ranking would be impossible to do, if the lowest rated mens teams are given 1 out of 5 stars. The best rated women's team would have to be 0.1 out of 5 stars at best. I don't think womens football is even at conference level (5th division in England) and I've heard stories of pro women's teams getting massacred by male youth teams.

Oh yeah my other bit of evidence that women's football isn't anywhere close to mens. Me and my sister both play football, shes pretty good, but never been as good as me lol. Anyway she recently joined FULHAM LADIES FC in the second division and I've never been anywhere close to professional football, I'm playing sunday league football (the serious teams play on saturday here), and going to have to join a new team this summer. I also take my fitness and strength training much more seriously than her for football, yet she's at a top club and isn't too interested in eating healthy and training!

I reckon a decent u14 boys team who took any sport seriously would give top level female teams a run for their money.

It'll be interesting to see how it's handled in the game...most people have no idea how bad women's football is...it makes MLS look good Big Grin

The US women's team, which has been one of the best two or 3 teams in the world for the last 25 years, regularly plays U17 boys teams and gets destroyed. I first heard about this when I was younger, as I played with a guy who was in the US U17 player pool back then. This was around 2000, right after the US won the world cup with Mia Hamm and that player who took her shirt off. The boys ran circles around them and won 6-0. Another year they won 8-2.

So the best womens team in the world isn't anywhere near a group of decent 15-16 year old boys. I don't mind them being included into the game, but the gameplay needs to be at about half speed for it to be accurate.

If you think women's soccer is bad try watching the WNBA (women's pro basketball). It's AWFUL (but ABC and ESPN force it down our throats every summer after the NBA playoffs are over just so women get their fair share of coverage).

I can't let this comment pass. The reason being if the stats are scaled and equivalent to how they are measured on the men's teams, the women's teams would literally max out at 10 on a scale of 100 and that's being generous.

The worst teams are one or half star but they are still professional men's sides. As another poster pointed out, a strong u17 team would destroy the very best women's team - not beat, but crush.

This isn't yale vs. alabama in terms of gulf but the patriots vs. a freshman hs football team.

However, if EA actually scaled stats to be accurate between the genders (as you say they will), the public will levy claims of misogyny against EA and the backlash would be huge.

This is why they won't make them accurate thereby invalidating your post.

RE: FIFA 16 to include Women Teams
I wonder if it will allow Mens vs women's teams. And if it will allow Pepe of real madrid to slide tackle a woman? This will eventually blow up in their faces as the female teams will be too weak to enjoy or will be unrealistically good and people would lose interest.
To be honest i only used 3 different teams in total when i did play FIFA, No one is gonna use these women's team longer than 2 days of purchasing the game.

Choose your next witticism carefully Mr Bond, it may be your last.

its really precious seeing your rodent wheel excuses for brains spin endlessly
