It's In The Game

MLS Season Sim POSTED BY Rolla Sarwary ON Mar 8, 2012

FIFA 12 | MLS Season SIm

EA simulated the entire 2012 MLS regular season, testing all 19 clubs under the same conditions they will face in the months ahead to determine that the LA Galaxy will finish first overall in the 34-game regular season with a league record 75 points, posting a 22-9-3 win-draw-loss record. Three losses would set an MLS record for fewest losses in a season. 

 
EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer 12 also predicted that Galaxy striker Robbie Keane will win the 2012 Budweiser Golden Boot, awarded to the top goal scorer at the end of the regular season. EA SPORTS has predicted Keane will score 19 goals this season.
 
EA SPORTS has a proven track record of correctly predicting winners using its game engines across all of its simulation sports franchises. EA SPORTS correctly determined that the LA Galaxy would capture the 2011 MLS Supporters’ Shield and MLS Cup 2011. The FIFA Soccer game engine also correctly predicted that Spain would win the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The Madden NFL franchise has correctly predicted seven of the past nine Super Bowl champions.
 
The simulation was conducted using team rosters as of March 1.
