FIFA20 PRO CLUBS DEEP DIVE

via: EASports

Hey FIFA fans,

We’re here today to share a preview and some details of this year’s updates for Pro Clubs.
We know this is a much-loved mode for many of our players and we’ve been working hard to incorporate community feedback and suggestions into offering increased customization for your Virtual Pro, new ways to play, and providing an overall better experience for everyone who counts Pro Clubs as one of their favorite modes.

Without further ado, let’s dive into some of this year’s changes.

Customization

Creating your Virtual Pro is a huge part of the Pro Clubs experience, and we know how important it is for you to have as many options as possible when it comes to customizing and controlling your pros in the game.

For FIFA 20, we are introducing a new Avatar system that replaces player creation across the entire game – including Pro Clubs. This feature will bring new ways to design your Virtual Pro’s visual characteristics via an improved 4 quadrant axis morphing tool which not only allows you to morph and define each facial feature to your liking, but to also go further than ever with added morphing options and skin tones.

This new system also maintains all the features from the previous Virtual Pro system – from commentary name to updated goalkeeper gloves to setting your preferred celebration/set piece styles.

But we know that creating a player doesn’t only consist of making sure they ‘look right’, and that you have been requesting new positions for your Virtual Pros to play in to give you more control of the way you develop your game on the pitch. In FIFA 20, from community feedback, we have added back the following positions:

  • LF/RF
  • LW/RW
  • RWB/LWB

These newly added positions are also accompanied by a revitalized player progression system within FIFA 20, where choosing between different positions, heights and weights will now have a deeper impact on how your Virtual Pro moves and feels, with these choices affecting all of your Pro’s physical attributes.

Stamina has also been reviewed, and we’ve tuned the values to create a risk vs reward system – if you invest in stamina and pace, you will sacrifice other attributes for your pro.

All players will start their Pro Clubs experience at an 80 overall rating. From here, progression is earned through Drop In, League, and Cup Matches, with the remainder coming through player traits, which have also been revamped.

We’ve introduced over 30 additional traits for FIFA 20 that, if paired together with specialty traits, will allow you to take customization to the next level. They offer increased benefits to your pro, but at an increased cost and a potential effect on other attributes.

Broadcast

We have worked on re-branding the mode for FIFA 20 to add to the immersion you feel when experiencing a Pro Clubs match. In FIFA 20, we’ve implemented broadcast features such as replay transition wipes, an on-screen watermark, club banners and a new Pro Clubs logo. The club banners are influenced and defined by a team’s primary and secondary colors, and show the name of the club in the stands. Stadiums that support banners will display both home and away club banners throughout the matches.

We’ve also added AR (augmented reality) overlays to match intros, half time, and goal scores to enhance your broadcast match experience.

In addition to this, match types in Pro Clubs will now feature unique broadcast colors to distinguish the mode between Friendly, Cup, and League matches.

We’ve also changed how you’ll experience goal celebrations with your team. Once you score a goal, you’ll be able to celebrate with your entire team as the camera will not zoom on the goal scorer, but instead stay zoomed out so you can coordinate custom celebrations with your teammates. See below for an example we coordinated.

Match Types

We’re bringing two new ways to play Pro Clubs this year: House Rules Cups and Practice Match.

House Rules Cups takes the popular House Rules from FIFA’s Kick-Off mode and brings them into Pro Clubs. Replacing the old cups, House Rules Cups will rotate a match type every day of the week, with a different cup playable each weekend. The schedule is visible in-game so you’ll never miss your favourite cup.

Practice Match allows for Clubs to practice individually or as a team against varied AI difficulties, from beginner to legendary. In addition to the available difficulties, you can set which tactics you want to play against (i.e. Possession based or High Pressure) and what overall rating you want your AI opponents to be, from 80 rated all the way to 99 overall rated players.

We know that this has been a highly-requested feature in Pro Clubs and consider this to be a valuable first step, as we look to the future of Pro Clubs.”

Pro Clubs – Requested Improvements

In addition to all the new Gameplay Features coming for FIFA 20 – which will all be present within Pro Clubs – the team has also focused on tackling some of your frustrations to give you a better overall experience.

Some of the main ones that have been tackled in FIFA 20 Pro Clubs are as follows:

  • ‘Any’ Stamina Bug – Stamina drained faster for the player controlling the ‘Any’ position
  • CB in wall – The game now places taller forwards and midfielders in the wall to defend against Free Kicks
  • GK Set Piece – Having a GK as captain will no longer affect game stability when your team has a set piece to take
  • Club Trophy Celebration – Clubs can now watch the full Cup Celebration when you win

Another hot topic in the Pro Clubs community is Kit Clashing. This year we have added over 25 new customizable kits and over 150 crests to choose from.
Alongside these additions, we have also added a Pre-Match Kit Select for all Pro Club matches. Once a match is found, the team captains can pick what kits their team will see locally for the upcoming match. The kits displayed represent what both teams currently have selected as their default home and away kits. The Pre-Match kit selection will work with our kit clashing logic in unison to help deliver the best experience, free of kit clashing for players.

We hope you have enjoyed this preview of Pro Clubs in FIFA 20. We’ve had a great time working hard to develop new features and incorporate your feedback, and we are watching, listening to and reading all the feedback that comes our way.

New look for Vendetta

NASHVILLE – Vendetta Gaming Club has had a busy off-season. The club announced last month a complete rebrand and this week acquired two quality players in the attacking third.

EMc8791 and Monocular Cat, both previously with Hole Train FC, combined for 7 goals and 3 assists last season. Addressing the needs up top were a priority for the club considering the side only tallied 6 goals in 9 matches during the beta season.
