EA UFC 4 survey

Someone on reddit posted these screenshots of a survey he got in the mail :

What do you guys think?

Seems like a lot of microtransactions, still no instant replay and no universe mode, I'm a little sad.

Vampires, werewolves, sea monsters.. Seriously? I honestly hope this is all fake.

Hmm...

Seems like the Tekken 7 kinda route?

They have that similar setup where you unlock cosmetics for your dude, customise him then go online to do more fights and unlock more cosmetics.

Other than that, there really isn't anything of substance to that description. Like, every game is the most satisfying, most authentic, best gameplay, best representation of the sport, but that doesn't really mean much.

If they want to market and build the game off single fighters going online, this is the way to do it imo:
- Have camps, where you can have like 20 people or so, physically walk around and see them, there you can go and hit the bags, pads, spar with each other, spar the AI, drill things and schedule "League" fights, "Ranked" fights, "Unranked" fights.
- "League" fights are carried out weekly perhaps, run by players, people can watch the fights like they did on EA MMA, and you'd have full fight cards like on EA MMA. If a player doesn't show up, one of the other players from their Camp can fight as his character for him for the first time, second time round and onwards the AI takes over, just to prevent lesser players letting their Camp leaders do all the fights for them. When you win, you get virtual cash to spend on your cosmetics for your Camp and perhaps equipment, and separate fighter cash which you can spend on your character, for things like flying him out to do training at other gyms, new nutritionist diet etc. Camps with lesser equipment can still achieve the same stats but perhaps the penalty is the training time required? Or if they wanted it to be completely fair, then just cosmetics.
- Ranked fights would be your standard ranked match, for dudes to play inbetween their league fights, or for dudes who aren't interested in league fights but still want to get involved in the competitive scene. I guess ranked would be the official competitive scene whereas league would be player run.
- Unranked would be your standard exhibition matches.

Then, the big next move, is to make it FREE for everyone on PS4 & Xbox to be able to download the Camp mode, and come visit, have a look around, try some minigames or sparring and watch YOU fight. This would be HUGE!!! Heck, expand it to PC too. Then you're really talking & it's free advertising for the game.

Imagine MartialMind hosting one of his YouTube videos straight out of his camp, and we all rock up there, GPD and others too, all in their virtual forms, do some mad sparring, rolling whatever, then go on to watch MartialMind fight in his league match against the current champ in that league.

There's your innovation if you want to do this whole "you, your fighter, your style, your personality, and your progression" mission.

Personally I'd prefer universe mode and offline focus but something like this does peak my interest no doubt, especially to give the online more of a community and authentic mma feel!

Dudes, actually, if this is legit, please give us a wealth of new venues.

I'd rather have venues than cosmetics on my characters!

Give us everything from Career mode and then some.

I just want to be able to play old school rules with Royce gracie in the gi, like a history mode similar to the WWE Games"

This.

Edit: I'm a daft c*** xD... scroll down for more images!

Read the bit about Sea Monsters and Vampires, if we do get such skins / characters, then give us the Venues to go with them.

Would love to fight as Derrick Lewis in the Popeye's parking lot in an open weight fight 64 man tournament for the Undisputed Popeye's Bucket!

You'll totally lose the sim guys though but if your audience is younger folk, some of my best memories on PS2 were WWE backyard fights with some mutant CAFs and friends on the multitap controller... then you could just add more and more venues as DLC, skins, whatever else and do a limited time event and if people don't unlock it, then they can buy it with store credit which isn't real cash.

I'm not even being sarcastic. That's how badly I want new venues.

FNC had so many gyms and locations to fight out of, wouldn't it make sense here too? Especially the basic ones from Career?

Even EA MMA had a wealth of venues from Thailand to Brazil! Stuff like that adds massive variety to the game.

If this isn't fake - it sounds pretty damn bad. The focus is in all the wrong areas. Grinding to get customisation items for mixed martial artists - what? Is that what's most important? This better not be a legit survey, wow.

Re: EA UFC 4 survey

The cosmetics bit wouldn't be bad if it was limited to REALISTIC fight kits, gear, accessories and styles for fighters (for example, different versions of haircuts and/or beard combos for every fighter like McGregor, Jones, Stephens...). That would help break the monotony, even if the opponent is the same his style could change a bit.

But all the supernatural stuff has absolutely no place in this game. If it's bound to happen, please keep it in Ultimate Team and don't pollute Ranked with this.

Also, please keep retired / legends / fictional fighters (Wanderlei, Frost, Holdsworth...) out of Ranked so we can only fight active UFC fighters. That way you can give godly stats to Legends or created characters without breaking the Ranked balance.
