Team selection in FIFA; it has been the same for a very, very long time. A long list of players, pressing down on the d-pad continuously to find a player among quite simply an ugly presentation.
I can say that FINALLY, thank the Lord himself, things are changing for this years FIFA! Yay. This will be in the form of something which EA have dubbed ‘Team Sheets’.
Customise | Up to 6 different team sheets per club, altering your strategy based on your opponent, tactics changing in-game and the fitness of your players.
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.
