    Iím a big FIFA player. Some would say Ďproí 😜

    This one is weird. Overhead kicks are overpower and too common. Thereís a game breaking goal kick problem when you can have a player offside and kick it to him for him to go and score. Pace needs fixing, itís back to how it was when you couldnít run from a player. Too slow.

    Like others said, itís very pinbally. .

    Played some more yesterday. Again, I can only speak in terms of Seasons Coop but at the moment it feels so broken, and not just the usual "oh, it's just a bit different" sort of broken.

    15-8-33 is our current record. Not one of those 15 wins felt good.

    We play with manual through balls, manual crossing, semi shooting, semi passing.
    Last night I stuck full auto on to see what we were playing against. You have so much more time to do what you want to do in Auto, but there's a massive disconnect. I even scored a goal from a cross last night without touching the shoot button. That's not right!

    Midfield is a boggy, ping-pongy mess. This game seems only to reward excessive use of the right stick and audacious "timed shot" shots, and if you're of a generation that doesn't want to do that, then you're screwed.

    I have a bad feeling that FIFA is wanting to leave old men like me behind this year.

    I have been playing loads of this for the last two weeks. It's not great but nothing irritates me as much as the low crossing AI issues on PES.

    And there is SO much to do. FUT more than enough to keep me busy, but also started on the Journey as well. Not sure when, if ever, i'll go back to PES this year

    Just played 19 then 18 back to back online. 18 is so much better. The AI seems far more composed and the collision/strength stuff is dialled in. Hmmm.

    People know that some of the sbcs need a certain player to complete, so their demand is really high.

    I'm awful at this online! I did my rivals matches and qualified for division 6, which isn't very good to start with, but I'm getting hammered even in this division. Managed to finally turn it around and win my last game, but it seems you just have to play it first time out to the wings none stop. There's no controlling the game, it's just really end to end.

    I was alright at it last year, ending up in division 3. It always take a while to asjust, but I just can't see how I'm going to do that when players just let the ai defend and it blocks every shot.

    I've played almost 50 offline FUT games now, and its really growing on me.

    Done a lot of squad battles this week, looking forward to my packs tomorrow!

    Just spent 760k getting hazard, in the hope that the sbc packs would at least cover some of the cost.
    EA might as well have just shat on my xbox, as they had done to my hopes of reclaiming any coins back.

    Get better at defending! I'm not saying there's not an issue with it, but in the 2 seasons of ML it's be played, I think I've probably only conceded a dozen goals like this. And even then some of them could have been avoided.

    I am still tempted to pick this up for the Switch mind you.

    The article on the front page with the bug where the game falls apart is amusing. It's a bug and these things happen but everything seemed to break at once so it was great.

    @TFM_Excalibur

    Where on earth did you get that many coins from!

    Iíve completed my premier league squad. Itís pretty basic, but 80 rated at least.

    Now just need coins to buy premium players!

    Yeh I've been using a premier league squad which I've been steadily improving. I got lucky when my squad battles packs gave me pickford, kompany and baily, so I'm pretty solid at the back now.

    It's growing in me, I'm getting better in single player at least. By the end of last year world class was my default and i'd play the crappy teams on legendary for squad battles. So far this year I've struggled on pro and even had to put it for semi pro for the super teams. It's clicked now though. Stuffing pro by 4 or 5 on the regular now and beating crap teams on world class so could be time to switch it up. I've struggled to find the right formation but 4 1 3 2 seems to be it.

    Just read a tip, apparently a couple of the squad building challenges look pricey, but the pack that you get is worth way more than the cost of buying the team from the market

    I've put about 250 quid into it so far, and packed neymar and 89 rated nedved on the first night.

    I've stopped buying games, I rent all my new releases now, costs me a lot less and means I've got some spare dosh to pump into fifa!

    The difficulty is all over the place.

    I win a game comfortably, then get turned over.

    There's never any space. I don't understand how the AI is covering so much of the pitch for 90 mins.

    Has the shooting been nerfed totally outside of those double shots?

    Why not?
    I'd been stacking 12000 bundles each month through the fifa 18 argentina store, so it's realistically only cost me about 2/3rds of that

    Still, it's my most played game by a country mile every year, so I feel like I'm getting my moneys worth

    I've already clocked nearly 6 full days of gameplsy and it's only been out a few weeks, that's including me being out the country last week ha

    It's only been out 3 or 4 weeks. Each to their own I guess. Will you spend that again though?

    This'll be the last year I reckon, now that vpn purchase methods have been stopped, plus everything that's upcoming and the already existing backlog is just getting ridiculous

    Mental isn't it, essentially bought 6 full price copies of the game. No wonder EA love it so much.
