    I turned the switch assistance off.

    Tried turning the passing and shooting off but i not good nuff.

    Game speed to 'slow'.

    Yeah I tried turning passing to semi but it just got incredibly frustrating.

    Actually played a lot more of it now and once you get past the hang up of it not being like real football itís actually rather fun.

    And so much to do as well. Ultimate team is still great.

    Not sure why I canít access the transfer market on my Web or phone apps though.

    Yeah I actually really like it. The wealth of choice and the presentation has papered over the issues I have with the core gameplay but to be honest I don't find that bad at all really. I'm not a serious fifa player by any means. I've probably spent more time doing the challenges and sorting my team over actually playing matches. Got a fairly decent Serie A side now.

    Had a decent game of fut last night.

    The CDM thing is annoying me a bit. Seem to always know which side you're going to try and pass them on.

    Itís the opposite of PES this year which is initially fantastic and then slowly fucking irritating.

    This is initially irritating but then slowly gets better as (I) learn and adjust how to play

    Also - the big switch never seems on.

    It's worth sticking with semi assisted, but maybe not in FUT. I started a career mode with deportivo and semi is great, makes the game feel much more realistic. In FUT though with the faster pace and the fact you are always playing against good teams, it just feels really frustrating as the opponent pings the ball around first tim whereas for you three passes first time in a row is an achievement.

    Is there an FUT mode which ranks you alongside similarly rated teams? I just did my first match of division rivals, my bronze league 2 team vs some other team with Neymar, Rakatic and Gameiro in it. Needless to say I lost 5-0! Almost scored twice tho.

    Having any joy playing out from the back?

    AI is always on a very effective high press, only one that doesn't leave space behind it either. The blind goal kicks are hopeless.

    What's the best modes for rewards (single player wise) is it squad battles? I know the rivals thing is best overall but it's online and fuck getting my ass kicked every game.

    I guess I'm fairly happy with my team now anyway and I've started to play be a pro mode a bit more so doubt I'll sink a great deal of time into fut now, especially once RDR2 arrives.

    There's also the bronze pack method if you like wheeling and dealing.

    Basically you can pretty much always sell the individual contents of a bronze pack for more than you bought it for is the idea

    Loads of people. They are good for the SBCs.

    I also like to play using a bronze team in single player.

    I've played a lot more of this than the last one, I normally just buy it for the kids. I've built up a fairly decent La Liga team.

    I'm enjoying the fact that passing is a little more challenging, and the fact that it's not a total goal fest. However the AI defending makes playing through the middle really bloody tough unless you are massively patient. The defenders flood back and sit in across the middle. And it seems really easy to intercept this year. I end up playing it wide all the time, it's easy to get a fast winger in and you are always going to get a couple of decent headed chances.

    Yeah defending is really OP at the moment and you can basically let the AI do the tackling for you.

    My Silver Mexican league team is complete! well i mean i could pay extra for better players, but it'll do for now.

    Was struggling a bit in some single player challenges with a bronze team even on semi-pro/pro level.

    Also started playing The Journey for the first time as i never had 17 and 18 i had on switch - it's actually rather fun.

    Really can't get on with this at all - feels like I'm playing a different game to everyone else.

    Passing is like ping-pong, overhead/scissor kicks are the norm for most crosses, the pace of the game is ridiculously fast and the ball physics don't feel exactly right.

    Wish they'd go all out arcade-y instead of this what feels like a compromise.

    Can't believe you still can't do 2v2, 3v3 online with mates either - wanted this feature since FIFA 10 and still no joy :(

    @Rhaegyr

    It doesn't feel fast to me. I am heavily medicated though half the time so maybe that's just me :) I agree about the physics. It never feels quite right to me on any version of fifa. I really do wish they had 3vs3 though. Bring back fifa street.

    Feels like pinball to me tbh.

    The whole game is basically, pass, throughball, throughball shot on goal in a few seconds

    But finding it fun despite that. It's almost as if PES became a bit of a chore to play in comparison, this is just light relief

    You can knock it about but not really go anywhere.

    Whereas in 18 if you were patient opportunities would present.

    I dunno. I barely use through ball on this. Patient approach works for me on this. I barely played 18 so can't really compare.

    Iíve had throughball on manual since FIFA12. Is the auto overpowered this year? I get more enjoyment in knowing Iíve played a manual ball, but itís irritating knowing Iím losing out online to full auto peeps.

    I'm enjoying a few games a night trying to get Southend Utd into the premier league. The fast wingers and wide play seems to be the best option though

    Dunno about overpowered, i only play on professional level, but seems to be the easiest way to score vs the AI to me. Fast strikers, wait for them to start a run then over the top throughball down the middle.

    Or wingers, throughball, low cross, tap in.
