Why don't EASPORT look at FIFA Leagues Rating and pic first 15 or 20 leagues for the game? Those leagues like Sweedeish and Israil are so poor so they are not even in first 20 European leagues. Russia, for instanse is number 7, and Czechia is in the first 10 also, but there is no Portugal.
I think it is wrong.
After Spartak Moscow, Rotor Volgograd and Lokomotiv Moscow have done last year in EuroCups the Russian League should be included in FIFA 2000. Or else the game has no clue.
I agree with evil! Why didn't EA take 15 best leagues from UEFA ratings(if they or somebody call their selection of leagues "18 top leagues")!!! There must be Russian league!!! Btw, last season results- Spartak-Real-2:1,1:2; Spartak-Inter-1:2, 1:1(Inter sored on 90th minute), Lokomotiv-Lazio-1:1, 0:0.
I think that EA should have league add-ons for download, so that people can locate their favourite league, and add it to the game.
I agree that some good leagues are missing should be included, and some shouldn't be included (e.g. Korea).
I wander how many teams are in the Brazil league this time - I hope that they put a large number of them in (like in the last championship). I'm glad that there will be proper MLS teams - not that fake USA league that they put in since FIFA 96 (or FIFA 95 if you had a Genesis console like I used to!)
Another comment - I think that some very underrated leagues (such as Russia, Argentina, Mexico) should have been included.
I was very surprised that Korea League is in, and J-League isn't. Korean League probably is good, but it is not widely known outside of Asia.
I reckon that EA should put a few empty leagues for those who want to make their own "CUSTOM" league with "CUSTOM TEAMS". Such as an ability to add a custom league with any amount of teams for that league, then fill in the details to the users requirements. Not just would that be better, but no leagues would be overwritten!
2iceman- Look at UEFA ratings, they shows how teams from a country play in eurocups(it's better to look there and not to dispute which league is better) I repeat, the Russian league is 7th, but where is Israel league??????
I think J-league is better than Korean league(if EA wants to include the asian league in FIFA2000, they should include J-league)
In this way you could say that Sweden's,Greece's and maybe Portugal's league should be out BUT in these there are players like Andersson(AIK),Giovanni/Zahovic(Olympiakos),
Poborsky(Benfica) which aren't on lower leagues like Korean(for Christs sake!)or Russian.U see the league is not made only from the best 2 teams but from all of them!
"U see the league is not made only from" 1 player!
And again UEFA ratings made not from one team, but from all teams, which was playing in eurocups. And if teams from countries like sweden, norway and etc plays bad in eurocups, then that league is bad (I think it's easy to understand it or U don't know what are UEFA ratings?)
Men! many good leages aren't in the game! And there alot of junk also! Look at last Spartak games in cups. Spartak-Ajax 3:1, 1:0; Spartak-Real M. 2:1, 1:2;
Lokomotiv twice in a row got into 1/2 final in cup of winners cup including last games with Lazio (0:0, 1:1).
There also Rotor Volgagrad, Alania Vladikavkaz, Dynamo Moscow, Torpedo Moscow, CSKA, and other great clubs.
Next year UEFA will let 6 clubs from Russia play in Euro Cups. I can't say the same about Portugal, Israil, Belgium, Sweeden and Turkey.
What's wrong with that?!!!
