FIFA 16 News Roundup #9

Android and WP users can now download the first FIFA 16 Companion App update with the next issues addressed:

– PC players can now use FIFA Points to enter Draft Mode
– Fixed Player Attributes display and Loan Pack issues
– Improvements to Club and Transfer Market search filters


Earlier this week, Pro Clubs players have reported resets over their FIFA 16 Virtual Pros which lowered their ratings. EA Sports are currently looking for a solution but users already gave up on seeing their overalls restored because this problem already occurred in past editions of FIFA and it was never fixed. Most probably this bug will be fixed with the release of title update 1.0.3 but nothing has been confirmed yet.
