And watch how much hate EA gets when they remove female players in the next game.

annoyedgamer604d ago (Edited 604d ago )

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.

sonarus603d ago

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.

sampson3121603d ago

why not just keep both? what's the big deal? or is this just another HATE WOMEN topic?

sampson3121603d ago

@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?

freshslicepizza603d ago

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?

Just make using them a trophy/achievement. See that number jump.

RommyReigns603d ago

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).

RommyReigns603d ago (Edited 603d ago )

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.

would be foolish for EA to stop having women soccer players in their games no?

10 yrs after removal #badbusinessdecision.

20live603d ago

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

N8603d ago

They can't remove them. They are stuck now

Rimeskeem604d ago

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.

ameliabaz604d ago (Edited 604d ago )

Yeah 9% might not seem like a lot, but that's still almost 1 in 10 players.

nX603d ago

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?

sampson3121603d ago (Edited 603d ago )

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.

ShaunCameron603d ago

@ sampson3121

Says the person thinking he's gonna get a date trying to stick up for women.

TankCrossing603d ago

Probably more people playing FIFA ladies than most games get in total.

C4rnos603d ago

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.

sampson3121603d ago

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.

jrshankill603d ago

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.

sampson3121601d ago (Edited 601d ago )

"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.

ginganinja603d ago

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?

RommyReigns603d ago (Edited 603d ago )

Nah it's John Terry, with Andy Gray providing commentary on the appearance of a lineswoman ;)

SaveFerris603d ago

I think it also needs Senran Kagura style destructible costumes, swimsuits, beach football mode, and guest characters from DOA Xtreme 3.

melons603d ago

Probably because there's so little choice? Limited teams, limited modes. No issue here.

darren_poolies603d ago

Exactly. Was literally about to comment the exact same thing.

darren_poolies602d ago

Not exactly sure what the disagrees are for. Anyone care to explain?

AnubisG603d ago

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.
