About that FIFA2016 XBox game that includes women soccer teams for the first time

I am not a big soccer fan, but my friend/neighbor is (he is Persian), and he was really excited about getting the game for his birthday... he is still single so plenty of time to play games in his 30s.

I go over to his house to hang out and play a little bit, and I brought up the woman's teams thing. So he and his other friends played a match with woman's teams USA vs Germany... the game developers honestly made the women players run about half the speed as the men players. And they kick about half as hard too... kind of made me wonder, wtf? Even if they can't kick as hard as men soccer players in real life, the game play could have just scaled... it led to some standard Persian male chauvinist jokes... fail FIFA

It just never crosses my mind to do stuff like that... I am still not used to having that built into my cell phone

3. Does it show the male players taking dives like histrionic fainting goats?

Because THAT would be accurate.

5. I love watching YouTube montages of the more egregious dives

Utterly preposterous.

As a matter of fact, I have a friend who enjoy's women's football (well, soccer) much more "because they play the whole game" rather than rolling around like spoiled babies.

6. I don't think you understand how the FIFA games work.

There is no scaling gameplay. Since the release of FIFA2014, Every single player in the game is modeled on their real life counterpart, and they all have speed, strength, endurance, physicality, aggressiveness, preferred foot and a bazillion other settings. If a player runs quickly, plays aggressively, and kicks hard in real life, their FIFA2016 player will do the same. If a player is slow and doesn't kick hard, their avatar will play similarly. If a player is very accurate with their right foot but can't hit the side of a barn with their left, the game will mimic that behavior as well. It even includes team chemistry settings that allows the level of teamwork in the real team to be modelled in the game...if two players don't get along in real life and never pass the ball to each other, they won't get along in the game either. The player modelling is fairly advanced.

EA simply extended this same system to the women's national teams, and the female players in the game are modeled DIRECTLY on the actual players they're representing. If the women seem "slower" and "don't kick as hard" as the men, it's simply because the women represented in the game DON'T run as fast as men in the typical game, and DON'T kick as hard. EA has sunk a lot of time into making the game as accurate as possible, and the slightly slower play of the women's teams is reflective of that.

9. They have to make women's soccer look like women's soccer

 

If they just made shorter version of the men with 90 strength and speed, the animations and gameplay would look ridiculous. You'd have 5'1" women running as fast as Ronaldo looking like Speedy Gonzalez.
