And only 0.98% of players have "Won the Women's International Cup"
And watch how much hate EA gets when they remove female players in the next game.
EA would me more likely to remove the men's teams to force the use of women's team than to remove the female teams.
the women are also complaining they dont get paid enough but the fact is most sports teams that also have women leagues are not viewed as much by the public. lots of money is made on tv broadcasting and tennis might be one of the few sports that has lots of people viewing women playing. it is what it is.
I didn't even know they were there😐
@moldybread Women in Tennis tournaments particularly Wimbledon get paid the same as Men for playing '2 sets to win' matches. Sexism at it's finest.
why not just keep both? what's the big deal? or is this just another HATE WOMEN topic?
@moldybread: "For a brief moment last summer, the U.S. women’s national team was everywhere. The team’s 5–2 final win over Japan was watched by more than twenty-five million people in the United States, the largest-ever television audience for any English-speaking broadcast of any soccer game, men’s or women’s. Afterward, there were tweets from celebrities and a phone call from the President; there was a ticker-tape parade down New York City’s Canyon of Heroes. For the July 20th issue of Sports Illustrated, each player and the team’s coach got her own cover." http://www.huffingtonpost.c... what?
Samson, now compare that to how many watch the men's world cup.
@moldybread: can you read? "The team’s 5–2 final win over Japan was watched by more than twenty-five million people in the United States, the largest-ever television audience for any English-speaking broadcast of any soccer game, men’s or women’s." and this isn't even the main point. what does it matter if women teams are in the game? did they have to take a men's team out to in order to include the women's league? no! why do you guys care so much? if little girls can play their favorite female soccer star, isn't that a good thing? https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Just make using them a trophy/achievement. See that number jump.
They did, four easy trophies in the game. Can simply be done by playing one women's match scoring 5 goals and a flair shot goal, and then winning the women's tournament (can be done by simulation until the final and then winning the final, or playing 4 min matches on beginner with Brazil for a safer way of getting the trophy).
I only played with women's teams just for the four easy trophies, surprisingly the 'flair shot in a women's match' trophy has only 0.7% of players having the trophy.

and then they went on and lost to a boys college team :/, still FIFA 18 should and will most likely have Women teams , but the 9% is a lot higher than expected
They can't remove them. They are stuck now
9% is still a lot of players. FIFA 17 has sold around 16 million copies worldwide so that what? almost 1.5 million players. While most players don't utilize the feature it is certainly used.
Yeah 9% might not seem like a lot, but that's still almost 1 in 10 players.
I bet 95% out of those 9% did it for the achievement/trophy and never done it again. In reality, not even women care for women football because it's horrible to watch - so why the hell did EA feel obliged to waste time including it in FIFA?
none of the haters in this comment section care about soccer, they just hate women because they will never have the opportunity to date one.
@ sampson3121 Says the person thinking he's gonna get a date trying to stick up for women.
Probably more people playing FIFA ladies than most games get in total.
Keep in mind the percentage is based purely on how many people unlocked the achievement for playing a ladies game- that doesn't mean 9% of players regularly play those games, heck; the majority was probably people checking out how it looks.
but I'm trying to understand why people care if there are women in the game? why is this a topic? does it hurt guys because they are hermits with little chance of dating and being loved by the opposite sex so having women in a game reminds them of their shitty lonely lives? why do people care? it's not their time and money that goes into making these games. the most watched soccer/football game in american history was the American women's squad against Japan during the Olympics, 25 million viewers. who gives a flying F if little girls, even if it's only in the 10's of thousands, can open the package of the game with a smile on their face knowing they can play their favorite female soccer player. Little girls are joining soccer in the US at a higher rate than boys. this SJW excuse is becoming tiring.
I'd say there is less percentange of people who actually watch women's football in comparison to mens. The big clubs have better stats and are a lot more fun to play with. Just the way it is. Playing a women's side on Fifa gives you a bad overall team in comparison to mens.
"The team’s 5–2 final win over Japan was watched by more than twenty-five million people in the United States, the largest-ever television audience for any English-speaking broadcast of any soccer game, men’s or women’s." NOTICE THE FACT: "the largest-ever television audience for any English-speaking broadcast of any soccer game, men’s or women’s." so basically there has never been a men's game in the English Football League that has had more people watching than the women's team on that day. not bad eh? think you need to do some research before you comment on things you have little knowledge of.
And the 0.98% for 'winning the cup', is still 150,000. There are plenty of devs out there that would love to sell that many games. There's also a case that considering FIFA is the sort of game which will be shared between siblings, friends, etc, that the total amount of players would be greater than just the amount of copies sold (so the 9% would also represent a proportionately higher figure).
They just need to improve the bewb physics to get more people into it
Sepp Blatter? Is that you?
Nah it's John Terry, with Andy Gray providing commentary on the appearance of a lineswoman ;)
I think it also needs Senran Kagura style destructible costumes, swimsuits, beach football mode, and guest characters from DOA Xtreme 3.
Probably because there's so little choice? Limited teams, limited modes. No issue here.
Exactly. Was literally about to comment the exact same thing.
Not exactly sure what the disagrees are for. Anyone care to explain?
And is that a problem? 9% is plenty of people. I think it reflects the real world standing of womans soccer pretty fairly. Men's soccer obviously dominates in the real word.
So? At least 9% more people get to use players/teams they associate with. Keep them in EA
Thats actually a very high number .
As many as that?! But in all seriousness that's still a heathy chunk of people when you consider the amount it sales and probably reflects the number of male vs female consumers they get.
The title is misleading. 9% don't play with women's teams. 9% have "played". They've tried it at least once. That's like saying 9 out of 10 haven't even tried it, let alone play it regularly. If this was a tooth paste ad you be saying that's good tooth paste.
I wonder what percentage of total players are females? More than 0.9% I'd wager... Wow, so many sexist women also playing FIFA - Misogyny! Down with the patriarchy!! #RemoveMensTeams
Isnt like they really pushed the womens game the gave international teams and notability not all them they talked more about there hair pyshics. Left out leagues around the world girls compete in. Bit of a joke ask me more than anything. Girls could have been repersented better. Would have like to have them in ulitmate team aswell tbh.
Getting in the game never guaranteed a popular surge of women's team being used or that fans were wild about it . Best thing now is for them to continue to make their appearance in the game worthy .Before the concept becomes an unnecessary cost to the studio, publisher or just become occasionally DLC.
Football(soccer) is the biggest sport with the biggest annual event bar none, 9% is a big number, especially considering Woman footballers that are playing at a professional level, in that its still early days for them at this level, its the case with most ball sports really and it shouldn't be made into another gender war thing, stop trying to nudge/force sexist agendas, we all have a choice and we all have a voice, there has never been a timeline in human history where we've ever had more equal rights for gender and race then in any other time in human history people trying to force society to change because they're perspective is skewed to "me against the world and its unfair" is a childish mentality to have and they should grow up, the world isn't fair and is far from perfect, but its up to each and everyone of us to take responsibility to push ourselves and make it a better one to live in
Implement breast physics, that number will jump up.
Not even, it's "Have played" about 95% of that 9% got that achievement in an effort of 100%'ing their favourite game. And will not return to said mode until they have to do it again next fifa.
Again it means nothing to the gamer, just give the option to play all.
I actually think thats a high number!
it was stupid all the hate ea got for it like they were doing something wrong by not adding the ladies, now it goes to show what a waste of resources it was adding them. 9% ea i wouldn't bother next time and screw the haterz, you tried and i certainly wouldn't waste your time.
How many percent of players play ALKA Superliga or Allsvenskan? 9% is A LOT, probably a lot more than EA expected... there will be more female teams in FIFA 18 not less!
Personally i played a few womens championship matches and after several games i quit. The players were slow to react to things and stamina level was weak. Let's face the facts here, mens competitive sports is always more entertaining than women.
What's with all of this feminist shit today?
So? They've given us a choice. Let people play what they want without making such a big deal over it. Who should even care what the percentages are?
What's the deal with the articles today, wherein the writer feels compelled to discuss various percentages pertaining to the female gamer demographic? Do these questions really need asking? I can think of any number of topics that would be far more interesting, relevant, and substantive.
