However, one of the things that has always interested FIFA fans is player ratings. It was not known how EA ratings are decided, until Michael Mueller-Moehring talked with ESPN.

According to him, some ratings are decided with a guess work because of the huge amount of data EA has to work on. That data is then refined thanks to professional data reviewers, scouts and regular football viewers.

One of the key element for player ratings is the league. In fact, when a strong player switches to a smaller league, his ratings drop. Moreover, there are some players that don’t have particular abilities, so EA has to alter their statistics in order to make them stronger.

FIFA 17 is already out for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
