number 8 pick up from the scrum- there is a delay which prevents the #8 from making yards before they are hit by the defence. Making the option pointless. Fix- allow the 8 to pick up and move forward immediately rather than just stand up and get hit.
The opposition likes to pass through the ruck as an ”inside ball”. Fix- stop allowing them to pass through the ruck when they snipe the opposite way.
Player Creator- Male the arms and legs appear bigger, as some players have monster thighs, also the option for bigger body.
physics- player weight has to be relevant when a tackle is made.
when kicking a conversion or penalty, a 1st person view would be awesome. Signature kicking stances. kicking accuracy and distance would also be good in player stats. For instance, Elliot Daly can send it miles but is not always accurate.
more licensing would be ideal but I understand the sticking point.
loading game screen- allow players to practice scrums/ back line moves.
unlockable legends, say 50 players with editable stats. Like JPR Williams, Jason Robinson etc etc etc.
more options in creation mode, hair styles etc. Also, replace ethnicity numbers which actual regions. For example, Caucasian, Asian, African, Pacific islands etc.
Choose a referee (referee bias changes up the game).
edit a ball
more options in create a kit
With the British and Irish Lions coming up, a patch for the licensed team when appropriate. Also the Barbarians would be a great license.
Another player creator option- under shirt padding. For example, how Jonny Wilkinson used to be padded up, how how sexton wears them.
I think a large bulk of these are relativity simple fixes. Some more complicated.
