    Was good to get your insight into all of this.

     

    I saw some of the protesters today on TV, starting fires, burning stretch limo, smashing windows and for why? Because their candidate lost the election!

     

    Smh at their antics, maybe a few of them should be sent into the military, straighten them out!

    See, this is the kind of bias I was referring to. "Education secretary who lacks education" - again, as an outsider watching in - instead of denigrating the incoming cabinet and President, isn't it supposed to be about giving them a chance? Peaceful transition of power I hear a lot of, but don't see much of it though. Not attacking you, so please don't think that!

     

    You mentioned you supported Bernie Sanders, it was reported that the democrats secretly cheated him out of the nomination, his own party! If that is true, that's dispicable, and no wonder that Trump won. Who can seriously support a party who hasn't played fair with their own candidates?

     

    Just want to say I am not trying to be confrontational, it just seems odd that the only reason Trump and his picks get so much negative spin is because he isn't part of the political 'family', or am I reading this wrong?

    If they fix something in FUT then 2 other things get broken in the process. Probably deliberately, keeps us all hoping the next version will be fixed.

    Thanks. you've confirmed what I suspected (outside looking in) there definitely seems to a kind of snobbery, looking down on people like GW Bush & Trump because of the way they talk, not always eloquent or grammatically correct, it seems to attract derision and contempt, rather than look at what they actually do in office (obviously we have to wait and see with Trump)

     

    Also it might explain the media's love of Obama, he seems the polar opposite, eloquent, appears smart and in control but his decision making (especially in the Middle East) is terrible, for the most part.

     

    Fingers crossed Trump is successful, a strong America always makes the world feel like a safer place, right now it's a mess and a worry.

    He comes across to me as a 100% patriotic American who didn't need to do this, he's a successful property magnate/entrepreneur/game show host who hated how his country was going down the drain and decided to do something, which he 1st mentioned years ago on an Oprah Winfrey show.

    You know, I'd be happy if EA split the game, so people like you and me could buy just the offline games, and those who love fut can buy that.

     

    Can't see it happening but who knows, with PES giving their online version out free every Xmas they might just do that!

    Hi, I read all that but it was hard! Try paragraphs it really helps to read (not being a smart ass, serious advice!)

     

    Anyway, you didn't say what difficulty you are playing on? That's the first thing to look at. Also your playing style sounds more like how best to approach FUT, believe me, CM is a completely different game, patience is the key, losing possession and then chasing every ball will end in tears every time - the cpu will make a fool of you!

     

    I have a channel running mainly CM videos, you're welcome to check them out to see some gameplay/tips etc., or other CM YouTubers.

    Totally overlooked mode, they only worry about FUT - no need to explain why.

     

    Your comments on the training is spot on - so unrealistic. I would prefer they re-did it from the ground up, maybe have only 1 player per week who can be coached 1on1 on specific training, and I mean really specific, like weight training for upper body (better for holding off other players, battling in the box for positioning for headers etc.), psychology classes to give a better attitude such as more aggressive (more hunting down opponents), less aggressive (less bookings) etc. I am sure a lot more satisfaction seeing real results of training in this way.

     

    Sadly I can't see EA going down this road, more likely PES would do this and are lightyears ahead in their CM anyway.

    Agree about the licenses, it's ruining competition in the long run. If both games (PES and FIFA) were on an equal footing, both having the entire licenses, then PES would be a seriously better option for a lot of people and would force EA to actually make a game that actually doesn't piss people off every year.

     

    I'm sure it happens on other games, COD etc., I am terrible at those games so don't play them much lol (apart from story modes)

    Good points, but about PES: they give away a version of the game, with their myClub and Kickoff modes only. The full game is still sold at a price similar to FIFA

     

    The gameplay is far better IMO It doesn't look as good as fifa, their online is atrocious, BUT it is the licenses....or lack of that give FIFA an unassailable edge.

    Correct. What EA (and probably most if not all) is doing is a very shady grey area, they were busted over syphoning money to Battlefield 4 YTubers to give them good reviews (google it) which I feel is the tip of the iceberg.

     

    Most of us are smart enough to know things like fifa points is akin to dropping your money down an open sewer and as equally as rewarding, but the kids glued to their laptops watching these OMGers packing Messi/Ronaldo/TOTY players in every other pack is massively deceitful, they almost need to have a warning about how much real money is required to have any sort of pack luck.

     

    As I said awhiles back on this thread, 35,000 pounds sterling spent (around 50-60K US?) by one YTuber to get most (not even all!) top players and informs etc. kind of explains the real odds behind this monstrous scam.

    I saw that guy W2S pack four TOTY players in 5 packs or so.. Who is that guy fooling? I have never seen him win any game, he must be the worst player out there, still he opens over 1000 packs a week, just to shout real hard that he's so surprised there are good cards in a few of those thousands..

     

    Funny, if it weren't so sad.

     Actually he's not a bad player, but quickly found out that people (read: kids) prefer to see him screaming as he opens packs, does stupid challenges or engages in nerf gun battles. Like Ksi, he has gone where the views (money) is.

    Sadly some of them (not Nepenthez, he's definitely ANTI EA) like Castro, Spencer etc. are actually EMPLOYED by EA to promote FIFA. In any other 'business' this would be a conflict of interest, but EA have found a nice way around it by basically bribing these guys to promote pack openings via FIFA points given or flying them to trade shows.

     

    My experience is, don't buy packs, EVER. Even with using accumulated coins... you're onto a hiding to nothing.

     

    Like the casinos like to say, the house always wins.

    Youtubers and live streamers  actually open a ton of packs. In their videos they just edit out the bad ones (except when they are trying to be funny) so the video can be better.

    As an outsider looking in, it appears that the anti-Trump propaganda media machine that demonised him throughout his campaign (with very few exceptions, Fox news and alternative online news outlets) is still in full swing.

    Most of his picks are unknowns politically, or one who are regarded as mavericks etc. which might be a bad thing, equally might be a good thing.

    He isn't President yet, but nobody in the main stream media seems to want to give him a chance...the first 100 days and beyond will give a much clearer picture than people like Seth Meyers pontificating about how bad things will be under a Trump Presidency.

    Your first line says it all really: they don't care. If they spent a fraction of the time/effort/money they spend on lesser-depth modes such as the Women section (dying a death already it seems), the Journey (fun and got some potential, but very shallow once you get past the novelty cut scenes) and - dare I say it - FUT! - and spent some time on making Career Mode Great Again (apologies for the Trump-ism lol) then we would have some game...

     

    Some kind of merger between the Journey and CM would be a good start! (IMO at least).

    posted a message on Youth Development Objectives

    I am doing an Ajax CM on my channel, and "the board" required me to sign up 4 youth team players and have them play 20 games in the first season...
    I don't have an issue with developing youth players usually, but Ajax already has some fantastic youth prospects (Nouri, Dolberg, Cerny, Clement etc.) but because I had to bring in generic, no-name, no-face youth players the only way I can get the real youth players developed is through loaning them out - I can't even train them because I have to develop these other players first so they can be used in-game.

    So to sum up, I think it's not a bad idea, but very badly implemented. You should be able to use existing youth players imo.

    I predicted that the shielding mechanic would be this year's number 1 OP game exploit, it's turned out much worse than I expected. Almost impossible to defend against other than push up against the striker then hope like hell you can switch to another defender in time, once he releases the ball.

     

    Slick passing on the run, one-two's, triangular attacks and well timed through-balls all get nerfed, while this OP mechanic is allowed to thrive.

     

    Just push yourself backwards to succeed. Nice job EA. REAL nice job.

    They fixed the Chemistry Glitch (which I personally believe was a deliberate piece of programming that they got caught out using to help promote sales of FIFA points [FP]) - because that was impacting their bottom line, i.e. sales of FP were dropping as people stopped opening packs... why open packs if 'in-forms' etc. were no better than base cards?

     

    And that, in a nutshell, is how they respond to issues: if it doesn't hurt them financially, they don't give a damn.

     Full list of gameplay fixes:

     

    • A situation where cancel was unresponsive after requesting a clearance.
    • A rare situation where the penalty shootout should have ended earlier.
    • Increased the CPU AI tendency to attack directly.
    • An issue where players sometimes overrun the ball after a skill move.
    • Increased the chance of error from ground crosses (triple tap).
    • Improvements to ball physics where shots off the goal posts lose too much speed.
    • Goalkeeper positioning for corner kicks.
    • Improvements made to player switching from corners and free kicks.
    • An issue where the player would control the ball instead of attempting a clearance.
    • Improvements to contested headers logic from corner kicks.
    • General fixes for player controlled celebrations.
    • Cut scene for contentious fouls can now be skipped.
    • Improved the general responsiveness of shooting.
    • Minor improvement to passing responsiveness when the ball is in the air.

    Really hope these fix the game! Patch is already out on PC, still waiting for it on console (Xbox here).

    Using only La Liga (Spain Div 1) players, we try to get to the 1st Division of FUT17 Online Seasons.


    RULES:
    There are 5 ways to win Token Points (TP's):
    Win a match, keep a clean sheet, score 3 or more goals, score a hat trick (3 goals by 1 player) or cause a rage quit (opponent quits the game).
    These TP's are then converted into Project Tokens; Bronze, Silver or Gold (depending on how many TP's scored in-game) which can then be used to buy equivalent players or packs!

    1 Token Point (TP) = Bronze Token; 2 TP's = Silver Token; 3 TP's = Gold Token; 4 TP's = 2 Gold Tokens; 5 TP's = 3 Gold Tokens.

    End of Season Rewards:
    Winning the Title gets 1 Gold Token, Promotion gets a Silver Token and Holding the Division gets a Bronze.

    Tokens can also roll over in a 5 to 1 ratio, for example: 5 Silver Tokens can be upgraded to 1 Gold Token, 5 Gold Tokens into 1 Special Token.

     

    We then use those tokens to buy players or open packs depending on whether they are Bronze, Silver or Gold (or Special)
