EA Sports has rectified FIFA 15 servers

Another states, “There must be FIFA 15 maintenance again, but after looking on official channels nothing is listed for 25th of March”. We have taken a look at the official Twitter accounts for EA and FIFA 15, although there isn’t any planned EA server maintenance, so it looks like the servers went down without any pre-planning. Chances are they will return pretty quickly, as long as this isn’t any type of DDoS.

FIFA Team of the Week 28 – You can see the new TOTW within the image above that EA published moments ago. There’s a free untradeable 15K pack available right now for everyone and Mega 35K packs at the Store, although they have a limit of 5.

Dean Coombes get the qualification for Munich Grand Final

The FIWC 2015 United Kingdom live qualifier event is held in Stamford Bridge, home of London giants Chelsea yesterday, which was a big war between eight finalists. FIWC is the biggest video game tourment held by EA Sports, to which you pay your money for FIFA 15 Coins.

After a tough day of knockout matches, 21-year-old Dean Coombes from Liverpool emerged with the UK title, securing his very first ever trip to a FIFA Interactive World Cup Grand Final! Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta presented Dean with his ticket to the Munich Grand Final before taking the opportunity to test his virtual skills against the new national champion in a friendly match of FIFA 15.

“Honestly I have no words,” Dean told shortly after receiving his Grand Final ticket from Cesar. “Coming here today, I was an underdog. To win the entire event by beating one of the best players in the world in the final. I’m just speechless.”

The day replayed

With three former Grand Finalists among the eight names that would compete at the Bridge, the field of finalists was an intimidating one. Prior to kick-off, eventual winner Coombes had tempered his expectations. “I’m just glad to be here,” he said. “I attempted to qualify in 2011 and 2013 and was unlucky. Just being at this live event will be a good experience.”

Dean Coombes, Munich Grand Final

Dean started his day with a solid 2-0 victory over Mustafa Ahmed. In his second match, he took a 2-0 lead before conceding a goal in the second-half. The Liverpool gamer hung on to claim a 2-1 win against Nathan Riches and put himself in the final. Meeting Dean in the final would be David Bytheway – silver-medalist at the FIWC 2014 Grand Final in Rio de Janeiro.

The final

Bytheway defeated two former Grand Finalists to make it into the day’s final match and the FIWC 2014 runner-up seemed the favourite to secure victory. However, after a goalless first-half it looked like a single moment of brilliance or infamy could decide the tightly contested match. It would prove to be the latter when Bytheway conceded a penalty early into the second-half. Coombes held his nerve to convert the penalty and take the lead. The Liverpool gamer maintained his composure for the remainder of the match and successfully held-off Bytheway until the final whistle.

Quarter-final results

Nathan Riches 3-2 Matthew Cross
Mustafa Ahmed 0-2 Dean Coombes
Jack Daniels 1-1 (4-3 on penalties) Tassal Rushan
George Tsirita 1-2 David Bytheway

FIFA 15 ranks second in Sports Video Game Power Rankings 2015

Here is a list of Sports Game Power Rankings, which was launched by Some of the leading writers and personalities in sports video game. We can easily find out the top 5 video games, some game you have already tried and others you haven’t played before even never heard, like FIFA 15 and MLB 14: The Show.

If sports video games have a season, the time between the holidays and March is its off-season. In that spirit, it’s a good time to recap where gaming’s major franchises sit after a year in which everyone was on the two newest consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Like power rankings of teams in a real-world sport, ours are unapologetically subjective, including in the candidates we’re considering. Sports video gaming is dominated by “sim” games; that is, titles that reflect what’s going on in the real world of their sport, through league licensing and broadcast packages. Games that don’t do that are something else altogether, and we’ll deal with them another time. With that in mind, here are the top performers coming into 2015.

1 NBA 2K15 

2K Sports’ basketball franchise doesn’t just simulate basketball games, it simulates a basketball life. In no other video game can you do anything like.

Take a non-roster invitee through a multi-year storyline, involving shady agents, maniac coaches, jealous teammates, scheming general managers, and high school mentors, from a 10-day contract to the hall of fame.

As a general manager, confront the (sometimes unreasonable) expectation of your team’s owner, while keeping individual players happy and cracking the whip on the coaching staff, over a decade or more.

Pit 30 of the greatest teams in NBA history against one another in an 82-game season, with full playoffs, to settle which one really was the greatest team of all time.

Gamble virtual — and valuable — in-game currency in pickup basketball games against people across the world.

NBA 2K15 has been the class of sports video gaming for a long time and puts the most effort into delivering a rich sports fantasy, both on the court and off.

2 FIFA 15

Electronic Arts’ flagship soccer franchise has transformed from an afterthought into a juggernaut over the past six years, helped in large part by rising interest in — and televised coverage of — the Barclays Premier League in the U.S. Some may argue that FIFA 15 didn’t do enough in its debut on the new consoles, but it already was doing plenty before that.

Sports Video Game Power Rankings 2015

The addition of special Premier League broadcast presentation — and the inclusion of all BPL stadia — enhance its already-strong career modes. Many FIFA 15 fans would spend most of their pocket money to buy FIFA 15 Coins, which is a kind game currency in game. And there are simply an astonishing number of ways to lose yourself in the game, from managing a big-time club or taking a smaller, lower league club to glory, to playing as single superstar, to live online matches as one of 22 individual players. FIFA remains the gold standard for many.

3 Madden 15

It can be fashionable to hate Madden. An exclusive deal between EA Sports and the NFL has made it the only professional football video game for the past 10 years.

Sports Video Game Power Rankings 2015

While no one will purport that it offers a perfect NFL experience, its latest incarnation is good. Really, really good. Steady improvements in decidedly un-sexy things like blocking and kicking don’t make for the best marketing material in the world, but they sure do make a football game a lot smoother and more enjoyable.

The muscle of the new console generation has been particularly good to Madden, which suffered at the end of the Xbox 360 and PS3 eras as the development team maxed out the performance they could squeeze out of the aging machines. Above all, the NFL is the undisputed king of sports leagues, and Madden remains a top seller and one of the most-played games online, among all genres.

4 MLB 14: The Show

Also the only game in town for its league, baseball fans must have a PlayStation 4 if they want to get their hands on this stunningly beautiful experience.

Sports Video Game Power Rankings 2015

MLB 14 The Show also offers a myriad of ways to play, from the engrossing Road to the Show career mode to more traditional franchise management.

MLB 14 The Show also has endlessly customizable difficulty and gameplay options to make sure every fan enjoys what he’s really good at and isn’t victimized by the weaker areas of his game. Each game still brings out the strategic beauty of baseball, and playing with timely hitting, baserunning and pitching changes are crucial to

5 Pro Evolution Soccer 15

You may not be playing it. Next to FIFA, you may have even forgotten about Konami’s soccer series, which once was king of the hill.

Sports Video Game Power Rankings 2015

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 put the series back on the map with the best-looking player movement of any game on this list and astonishingly smart computer-controlled opponents.

While PES’ November arrival date put it at an extreme disadvantage in its rivalry with FIFA, there is no doubt that PES has returned as a legitimate player in the business. Yes, it lacks the licensing of nearly all of Germany’s, North America’s and, critically, England’s domestic clubs, but what’s happening on the pitch is arguably better than anything found elsewhere.

FIFA says no to compensation for clubs

“We will not compensate clubs”, announced by the world governing body FIFA on Wednesday, despite the 2022 World Cup is moved to November-December, which have troubled European football clubs for a long time and make them angry a lot.

On Tuesday, Karl-Heinze Rummenigge, the chairman of the European Clubs’ Association, said his organization’s members wanted financial compensation following the proposed change.

This was to cover the costs that Europe’s clubs and leagues will spend on rescheduling their championships, many of which run between August and May.

But FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke dashed those hopes when speaking in Qatar, the country that will host the 2022 finals.

FIFA, compensation, clubs

“There will be no compensation. I mean, they have seven years to reorganize football around the world for this World Cup,” the Frenchman told reporters.

“It is happening once and we are doing nothing that destroys football,” he added.

With concerns for both players and fans given the Qatari heat in June-July, a FIFA task force announced on Tuesday that the tournament should be played at the end of the year.

Average temperatures in Qatar are around 25 degrees Celsius towards the end of the year, roughly 15 degrees lower than the traditional World Cup months.

Valcke also said the duration of the competition would be reduced from 32 to 28 days.

FIFA is expected to ratify the proposals when its Executive Committee meets in Zurich on 19-20 March.

European clubs had been hoping for the tournament to be played at the start of 2022.

“UEFA and its National Associations had initially preferred for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be held in January,” the European governing body said in a statement.
“However, once the FIFA Task Force recommended to stage the competition from late November to late December 2022, UEFA suggested an option could be for the final to be played on December 23.”

The English Premier League, whose chief executive Richard Scudamore said he was “very disappointed” by the switch, would prefer the final to be played earlier in order to maintain its traditional Christmas calendar, with matches having been played on December 26 for many decades.

FIFA, compensation, clubs

Meanwhile, Valcke suggested that the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, which normally takes place between January and February, will kick off in June because of the delay to the 2022 World Cup.

The Confederation of African Football has yet to comment on the matter, having previously stated it will only readjust its calendar once FIFA has confirmed the dates for the Qatar tournament.

In an unexpected move, FIFA announced that the 2021 Confederations Cup will not be held in Qatar.

The tournament is often described as a World Cup warm-up given that it allows the host nation to fine tune its facilities and conduct a test run some 12 months before the main event.

Valcke said the climate rules out Qatar and added that the tournament, which pits the World Cup holders against the hosts and champions of FIFA’s six confederations, will be played “in an Asian country,” which has still to be determined.
