Luis Suarez banned in FIFA 15

1 min read


When Luis Suarez took a chomp out of an Italian defender during the World Cup this year, I’m sure a possible ban was probably racing through his troubled head. He was banned not long after – a sentence he’s still currently serving, both physically and digitally.

In a bid to maintain authenticity, Luis Suarez is currently banned in FIFA 15. If you happen to pick Barcelona in FIFA 15’s Ultimate Team mode, you’ll immediately be served with a notice of Suarez’s on-going ban. You won’t be able to use him or transfer him either, until his ban in real life ends.

You can still use the prolific striker in Exhibition Modes and Kick-Off, but he’ll be automatically shafted to reserves if you have Match Day Experience on (which most people do).

I find it pretty hilarious that Suarez is getting punished digitally now as well. He may be one of the best strikers on the planet (he even got a sizable upgrade in-game), but that doesn’t excuse his bizarre outbursts on the field. Thankfully you won’t have to worry about that online just yet.

FIFA 15 sadly skipped out on authentic biting technology. That comes next year…maybe.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff's a bastard.

    EA missed out they should have been all *Pay R100 to unlock and use him now*

  • Pegasusu Fantaji (Umar)

    They must’ve saved a few megaBYTEs by not including him in the game now

    • Michael Matusowsky

      He’s included. His BYTES are there. You just can’t use him till his ban is over in-game.

    Well Barca also has a transfer ban for a year AFAIK, so you really shouldn’t be able to transfer him. Or is it only incoming transfers.

    • Alessandro Barbosa

      That entire situation is just so confusing. The way I understand it is incoming transfers, although it could be both. If it is, I have no idea what that means for players whose contracts expire…

      So yeah, confusing.

      • Weanerdog

        I understood as all, but common sense says that surely you could not stop a player from leaving.

    • Michael Matusowsky

      Players can leave the club but all in-going transfers are banned. Players already at the club can have their contracts renewed but barcelona may not sign any players, even free-transfers, till the ban is over.

  • SideEffectZA

    I’ll make sure I play season a lot whilst he is banned. I’m scared at what he can do in game. The ban takes the bite out of Barcelona’s attack. I tried 🙁

    There was an Arcade Football game back in the early 90s. Where you could Moer a player with a Knee and Judo Toss them across the field and then occassionally some topless bird would appear and wiggle her fun pillows at the ref.. can any1 remember the name of that game.. wish they update it for next gen..

    So does that mean FIFA 16 will have a zombie mode?
