Hey FVPA, how the hell are you? Thanks for checking out Roundup #2!
Have you ever been clean through on goal and gone for the spectacular finish for the cameras?
Er… well most of us faced with an open goal would play safe and just side foot it into the open net.
The “Trigger Glitch” is going to be fixed! EA are finally giving cheats the finger and have announced that an up and coming patch will put a stop to the so called “Trigger Glitch” that’s affecting so many of us!
Romily Broad explains:
“• Firstly, we will be fixing an issue with FIFA 11’s Clubs mode which allows clubs to unfairly end games without a penalty when they are losing: The so-called Trigger Glitch. This involves clubs arranging a disconnection to the game via the Player Ratings screen. To make extra sure that this issue is completely resolved for you, we will be removing this screen from the pause menu of all online modes.”
“• Secondly, we will be addressing poor teammate AI when playing as a Virtual Pro. Our fix will make sure that, no matter what difficulty you set for your opponent, your team AI will be much improved, making for an altogether better experience when playing the game in this way.”
“• Finally, we will correct a problem where your Virtual Pro can’t be brought into your Career Mode game.”
Beware Glitchers and Boosters
Looks like action might be taken against teams if you can provide evidence of “cheating” as EA live Producer on FIFA11 and Ultimate Team 11, Christophe Labrune said on Twitter:
“Going through PM’s of control glitch evidence. Then on to club stat padding. Not really fun, but what has to be done has to be done!”
He also commented as EA_FLT on the EA Forums.
You can read more details about the patch here and I’m sure we’ll all be keeping an eye on the progress!
Now, anyone fancy some Boosting??? :$
Many of you will have already noticed that the International Forums have undergone some housekeeping by the FVPA technogeeks. Hopefully this will make things less cluttered for everyone and things will be easier to find.
The rest of the Forum will be getting looked at next starting with the recruitment threads so keep an eye out for that.
I’m not going to go into as much details with individual games because there’s A LOT been going on in the iFVPA initiative over the last couple of weeks.
The PS3 8 Nations Cup is drawing to a close and the latest results and fixtures are:

The Official League will be piloted initially on Xbox but fear not PS3 guys – the plan is to roll it out on PS3 as soon things are confirmed as running smoothly.
Unofficial Xbox Clubs League Table
There’s also the unofficial FVPA Clubs League Table that will still be running concurrently for the time being.
Maintained by Sando1980 on an ad hoc basis you can check in and see how your club fares against other forum clubs. If your club’s not on there and you’d like it to be drop Sando1980 a message. Likewise if you’d like your club removed from the list.
PS3 Head to Head (1v1) International Cup
The PS3 Head to Head (1v1) International Cup run by Jamieis2cool came to a conclusion last week with Jay_LFC_07 lifting the Cup with underdogs Turkey! Jay_LFC_07 beat FIOSTYLE 5-3 in a thrilling final.
You can see an interview with the finalists here.
There is another Head to Head (1v1) International Cup underway and a Head to Head (1v1) Clubs League and Jamie2cool also has plans for a 32 man Head to Head (1v1) International Tag Team tournament which sounds cool. Keep an eye on this thread for more details of how to register…
I’d like to extend a huge thanks to Jamie2cool on all our behalf for taking the time to organise these unofficial tournaments and to keep them running so smoothly. Keep up the great work!
If you’ve got any ideas for future tournaments you can let Jamie2cool know in his * Home of Football *.

“Of The Week”
Meet The Manager
How long have The Legend Killerz been around?
We formed in October 2009 – just after the release of FIFA10. In FIFA10 alone we played over 4500 games with TLK and over 2.5k with a team called Round ur House FC, which the forum community also got to know very well. The core players played for both teams.
You must have seen so many teams come and go in that time, have you got any advice to help other teams stand the test of time?
Its basically egos and childishness that makes teams fold all the time. A few defeats and a few bad performances is enough for teams to quit. You will notice the teams that have hung around are run by mature people who know what they are doing. PLUS EA make it too easy to fold and remake all the time.
Being such a well known team, plenty of other teams must be out to beat you. Which teams are your biggest rivals?
We have had far too many rivals over the last 2 years to mention any in particular, the current is GOAL HUNTERS FC who after battering them twice in the one night with a smaller team, they are hounding us for a rematch. But to be honest there has been too many.
Finally, a bit about your team:
Most skilful player? Mikee ” no hair” Horler
Brightest? Must be me
Most annoying? Dan ” arsenal are crap ” Reddan
Best celebration? The no arm dive
Quote of the Week
This week’s Mr Generous goes to I_Am_Greatness__:
“craig, can u make a userbar for me?

I’m guessing that Craig dropped what he was doing and jumped straight onto Photoshop!
Thanks again guys, if you’ve got anything worthy of going in the next Roundup drop me a PM and don’t forget, if you’re on Twitter show your support and follow:
