The launch of EA Sports FC 24 is just around the corner. With an early access period for players who have purchased the most expensive editions or EA Play Pro subscribers who starts this week, there are many users who are already thinking about their Ultimate Team team. The most popular game mode returns in the first edition of the title after the divorce with FIFA and it does so with a few changes. Among them, one that has not depended on the developers. Generating controversy both for reasons and forms, the Saudi Professional League aims to position itself as one of the most attractive worldwide.
A competitive Saudi Pro League team on EA Sports FC?
Saudi football has become interesting to some fans for a very simple reason: they have signed a handful of big stars from other competitions. Thus they increased the media pull of the league and, as far as we are concerned, also they made it more interesting for the Ultimate Team from EA Sports FC 24. Times may have changed and Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar are not the most prominent figures in world football. However, they have millions of fans around the world who may have thought about using them in this ‘FIFA 24’. For them, yes, we have bad news.
The cards of these elite footballers will be accessible in the sense that obtaining them will be much easier. However, that will only be consequence of its limited usefulness. Now that we know the averages of all the players in the Saudi Pro League and have many detailed details about their statistics, we can come to rough conclusions about their performance on the field. A performance that, although pending to see how the ‘meta’ evolves, points insufficient to carry out a starting eleven formed exclusively by players from the competition on the day of departure of the game.
Most of the players are slow, we have a problem on the sides and there is not much room for improvement. Image created thanks to FutBin.
What is the problem of the Saudi League? EA Sports FC 24 players would be in luck if there was only one. Let’s start with the obvious: the number of great players becomes insufficient to create a guaranteed starting eleven. It is true that in the real world a team with the best in the league would be more than competitive. However, the detailed attributes of the cards make them have a poor performance in the video game. A perfect example is Benzema. Despite winning the Ballon d’Or in 2022, the former Real Madrid player has always had a more difficult time in FIFA due to his low speed.
Similar circumstances are repeated in many players in the Saudi league who could have formed a great starting eleven to create a competitive Ultimate Team team. Cristiano Ronaldo, N’Golo Kanté, Milinkovic-Savic, Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte also suffer from an obvious rhythm problem. Even the fast players who could enter our eleven, like Neymar or Mané, will not be on par with the great figures in the rest of the leagues. Less so now that the competition is fierce due to the introduction of women’s football.
Women’s football has increased the average level of EA Sports FC 24 in Ultimate Team, which makes it more difficult for less ‘meta’ teams.
What are we going to combine the Saudi league players with? The reality is that with nothing. One of the problems is that there are no good links to generate chemistry between the players that allow us to create a team with a majority of footballers from this competition. If, for example, we bet on the Premier League, we can find that Manchester City players combine well with players from the club’s women’s division. This possibility, especially for groups formed with English or Spanish competitions, raises the average competitive level and makes alternative options even more difficult to make work.
Everything be said, This only applies to the first months of play.. One of EA Sports’ goals over the last few years has been to expand the variety of viable teams in Ultimate Team. In this sense, it is expected that the Saudi Pro League will have a presence in the different collections of special cards that come to EA Sports FC 24. The same players with a little more pace, slightly less talented league members in improved editions and Other additions will arrive as the weeks progress. This is perhaps where things get more interesting, since it is expected that the price of these footballers will be somewhat lower as there is less demand.
Although it is not the most competitive option, it is best for everyone to play in the way they have the most fun. I still am not sure what my choice will be, but I do know that I’m tired of betting on every FIFA for the Premier League for my initial template. In that sense I am looking for a change and, although there are many things I don’t like about the Saudi league, I may end up creating a squad for an alternative competition. Leo Messi’s MLS and his powerful women’s division? The competitive but unpopular (in the video game) Bundesliga? I still don’t have it clear.
