As I've been predicting in my Twitch streams to my viewers, after the Sean O'Brien interviews and my personal experience with both 14 and 15, etc., I really believe Live 17 is when the game will not just compete with 2K in terms of reviews, but compete with sales. The reason being is 15 is the true foundation that 14 should have been. There's a lot of positives with 15 to build off from. If 16's focus is truly going to be game modes, and I hope Sean sticks to his word, then the hype for 17 is going to be high. EA needs to add Adidas Live Run or some type of team play to get people on board. That's what people like to play nowadays. As I've suggested, allow us to use our Rising Star player to take to the courts to play with other Rising Stars online. Speaking of Rising Stars, we gotta have GameFace in there and make it more functional than 2K's facescan technology.
As much as I enjoy LUT, there's too much emphasis on that mode and I stick to what I said in my review. They clearly got greedy with how they raised the price in terms of coins and points for packs. It's a money maker. But EA needs more modes than just LUT and what they have now. ALR and maybe Online Dynasty, the ability to edit rosters, maybe a PC version, etc., and people will start to notice even more.
EA please listen to your true fans. There's a lot of people out there out for their own fame only but the people in this site, the true Live heads, we're the ones you need to listen to.
