No doubt the video gamers amongst you will already have September 29 pencilled into your diary, but for those that don’t have a clue what we’re on about, it’s launch day for one of the most popular football video games – EA Sports FIFA 18.
Regular players of the game will no doubt be looking forward to the improvements in this year’s edition, including the brand new movement animations that provide more fluid striking and heading of the ball.
There are also enhancements to the single-player Journey mode, where you try and reach the grade as a professional player, all the way from a trial to the Premier League with Swansea City (or any team of your choosing if you’re not a Swans fan).
Of course anyone who has played the game or FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) for that matter, will know how each player has an own overall rating, which is derived from the rank they have for pace, shooting, passing, dribbling, defending and physical attributes.
As you can see from this Renato Sanches FIFA profile, he has an overall score of 76 in the game, which will no doubt increase the more he plays for the Swans this season 🙂
So how is each player and team evaluated and keep up to date? Well, this is where the FIFA Talent Scout community of over 6,000 members, comes into the equation.
The members of the talent scout community have expert knowledge of their club and as such they are a football analyst for their team, which basically involves examining their team and player data as often as you want in order to provide feedback and suggestions for possible changes.
By doing this, as a football analyst, you can contribute towards improving Swansea City player appearances, player attributes, team formations and team tactics within the game. All of which makes it a more accurate and enjoyable experience, not just for fans of the Swans, but the beautiful game in general.
There are plenty of knowledgeable Swansea fans out there, so if that’s you and you’d like to be involved with helping improve FIFA, then you could be in luck, as the FIFA Talent Scout team are looking for people just like you!
Just think, if you do become part of the EA Sports team, then you can help improve the player ratings of Wales’ only Premier League team.
