Last night FIFA 13 Career Mode Producer Santiago Jaramillo held a twitter Q and A through the EASportsFIFA account and it’s all been published online.
Q: Caolan_LFC: @EASPORTSFIFA will the World Cup/Euros/Confed. Cup be on career mode aswell? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @Caolan_LFC Lots of International tournaments to play in. World Championship, European Championship, Conf. Cup, qualifiers, friendlies.
Q: LawrieTubb: @santiagoj83 In career mode, can your players get called up? Eg African cup of nations, so you’d lose players like gervinho? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @LawrieTubb @santiagoj83 We don’t have all the regional tournaments this year, but we do have a South America Cup and European Championship.
Q: MrCrazy3000: @EASPORTSFIFA @EASPORTSFIFA If you are managing a smaller club will you still get national team offers? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @MrCrazy3000 Yes, but you won’t get offers from the best.For example,to get the Spain or Brazil job, you need to be successful in a top club.
Q: JudahS_: @EASPORTSFIFA #FIFA13Career are you more likely to get an off from the country you’re working in or the nationality you are?
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @JudahS_ if you do well in the top league, that country’s FA will be more interested in you. Same goes for your nationality. #FIFA13Career
Q: MrCrazy3000: @EASPORTSFIFA Can you just manager a national team and not manager a club? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @MrCrazy3000 No, you always need a club job.
Q: _YOLOscar: @EASPORTSFIFA now that there are National Teams in #fifa13career, is the World Cup in the game?
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @_YOLOscar We will have a World Championship that will follow the same format.
Q: AntDutra15: #FIFA13Career I think you should have a feature so we know how much potential a player has before I waste money on him!
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @AntDutra15 We’re doing a lot of work on the player growth system as we speak! #FIFA13Career
Q: AntonHMill: @EASPORTSFIFA #FIFA13Career if I play Player Mode, can I hand in a transfer request or leave a club in the winter transfer window?
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @AntonHMill Yes, you can hand in a transfer request at any point.
Q: bcfc: #fifa13career All these new additions wont matter when Birmingham city get took over and sign Kaka, Ronaldo etc…
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @bcfc we re-wrote the transfer system and there are lots of improvements there for authenticity.
Q: eivindws: Is youth academy still in #FIFA13Career? @EASPORTSFIFA
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @eivindws Yes, Youth Academy is still there 🙂
Q: mikeastuto: @EASPORTSFIFA Any updates to the youth academy? Specifically player growth? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @mikeastuto Some additions to the Youth Academy, and we are working on some very good improvements to the player growth system #FIFA13Career
Q: stowesport: @EASPORTSFIFA Will youth academy players be able to develop very quickly, like e.g. Rooney did in real life? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @stowesport It will depend on their potential, their playing time, match rating, and other factors that we are working on to improve it all.
Q: Sabre0001: @EASPORTSFIFA If you get subbed while playing poorly or tired, will your match rating drop? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @Sabre0001 Doing lots of improvements to the match rating system. We are still tuning it at the moment. Should be much better! #FIFA13Career
Q: lfcrusayne: #FIFA13Career Do you have to purchase the “edit player” option before starting the CM for it to take effect or does it update mid-CM?
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @lfcrusayne You can ‘unlock’ the option to edit players inside #FIFA13Career from the catalogue, and it will work for in-progress CM games.
Q: PepsiJamie: @EASPORTSFIFA Why not add things like team chemistry and wages where you can buy new boots and items? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @PepsiJamie You will be able to unlock new boots and other cool stuff from the EAS FC catalogue. #FIFA13Career
Q: liam_Cotter: @EASPORTSFIFA can u change your team kit every few seasons? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @liam_Cotter No, you can’t change the kits. They are licensed. BUT, you CAN unlock historic kits for a variety of teams and have them in CM!
Q: Murrayyyyyyyy: @EASPORTSFIFA Will more clubs receive face scans? #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @Murrayyyyyyyy Yes,I don’t have the details now,but more players have gone through the new face-scan tech and look incredible! #FIFA13Career
Q: GoOnDanny: #FIFA13Career Can you choose the teams who you want to play in pre-season friendly games?
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @GoOnDanny I really wanted this too, but we didn’t have the time to implement the feature. We had higher priorities for #FIFA13Career
Q: sirdaz12: @EASPORTSFIFA @sirdaz12: Are the celebrations better when you win a trophy? Should be seen going up and getting the cup. #FIFA13Career
A: EASPORTSFIFA: @sirdaz12 We have new celebrations, new stadium entrance sequences, etc…#FIFA13Career
