    Always the case. I kind of wish I'd shown a bit more restraint now as I knew it wouldn't be long. Oh well.

    I only paid £35 on disc so I think I've got £3 worth out of it already!

    Starting to see a bit progress in my ML team now. Managed to get some decent improvements in and on a little bit of a run. Only up to 19th but managing to score a few, although still not many.

    Aiming for a season 2 promotion to the PL.

    I'm still plowing away at Boca. I have River Plate away coming up in the Copa Libertadores semi-finals though.

    I didn't realise, that the Argentinian league is such an unusual format at the moment. You only play every team ONCE in the league, and the rest of your season is cup games and Copa. The next season, you'll play the second half ( knockout rounds) of the Copa if you get there, otherwise it's just the league games.

    I'm 8 games into my third season with Newcastle and top of the league but I'm starting to lose interest a bit. The AI defenders not responding to loose balls/through balls properly is getting a bit tiresome. Also the scripting seems worse than usual. You can feel when the game decides it's going to score - your players suddenly turn into bumbling idiots and the AI suddenly all turn into Pele. I feel like I'm scoring the same type of goal a lot too.

    Hopefully the patch sorts a few things out.

    Yeah Iíve only done a half season and getting a little frustrated at some things. The through balls thing is really annoying. I even try to switch to the player so I can move him but it wonít let me.

    The scripting as well. Played against stoke who were top of the league. Absolutely battered them for 90 minutes. Next game against mid table Preston I couldnít get near the ball and lost 4-1. When it works itís great, there are just a few niggles that show up a bit too often though. Typical PES really I suppose.

    Yep I'm with you both on the scripting, especially in ML.
    After the last patch the controls are fucked too.
    The freedom you had with the demo and main game pre patch were what sold it to me. Now I just just spend most of the game fighting with the controls where you might as well put the controller down until it has a shot.

    I do think itís one of those where the overall gameplay is really good, but play 50+ games and certain repeating niggles will eventually surface.
    Ahem.

    All very familiar gripes. Scripting is rarely as bad in the cups and league so that's always an option.

    I know this won't mean much to PS4/PC players but Konami are releasing a fully licensed Serie B in a Data Pack later this month.
    Trailer

    Hopefully a new gameplay patch will come too.

    That must be why I don't see it and wonder if I'm just being blind to it.

    Scripting nearly killed my title winning season. Last game vs Gimnasia, I had to draw to confirm the title. I lost 1-0, last minute keeper og...

    I only won the league by +2 gd

    Ha, phew. I'd not seen anything of this years Pro just yet but that nearly put me off for good!

    That celebration was pretty shocking. I normally skip through them anyway as they are all so shit.

    Great goal though Decks.

    There are some real stomach churning cringey celebrations in there. A few 4th wall breaking ones as well like where the live broadcast gain access to fans mobile phone and you see the celebrations from their perspective.
    Really weird design choice for a game that's about simulation.

    Good goal Decks.
    That celebration has been in for a while now. Think it was 15 or 16 it first came in.

    Still borked after the patch isn't it?

    I've bailed on it. Master League gets really boring after a season or two.

    Don't care about MyClub and that's where all the attention goes these days.

    @ERG1008 borked in what way? So far the patch seems to have made it a bit more stable.

    Despite them saying theyíve improved players not reacting to loose balls, Iím still seeing lots of examples of players just standing there or even walking away from a ball youíd really expect them to move for in real life.

    Really not sure how Konami isnít fixing this. If players donít move for the ball then it just helps the assumption that everything is scripted, that thereís no AI to deduct what it needs to do and instead the player is programmed to get into its position regardless of where the ball is.

    My frustrations with the game have completely transformed after someone suggested holdongndown RT when you're coming a standing tackle on a player. Have so much more success now winning the ball back which means more goals, which means team spirit goes up. From losing nearly every match first half of the season I'm now on an 8 game winning streak. Wont win the league, in the final of the cup, so it would be some bullshit if I got the sack at the end of the season.

    Will do a bit of shameless promotion and show the best goal I've scored yet. To me it shows what ML is all about. Crap players, you build them up and create moments like this.

    @Mr_Sleep Pretty much what Dazimus has said.
    It's mainly on counter attacks by the AI from your corners where your players just watch the ball whilst I wouldn't mind if they gave away a foul or just hoofed it away.
    Happens with deflections too where it designates a player to get the ball and you can't switch despite being nearer.
    Don't get me started on obstruction & body-checked fouls.
