    posted a message on Weekend league : fresh experience

    Welcome to hell!

    my advice is to stay away from it if you can. I'm trying to go back to regular seasons but I haven't managed it yet. Just play as many as you feel like if you do play and don't obsess about the 40 games. It's pure try hard with everyone desperate to win, sometimes the gameplay is horrible when the servers are over loaded too. If you are div 3-4 you will struggle with it to be honest. I play Div 1 and I struggle too. Also age is not a barrier lol, I'm a couple of years younger than you judging by your username and my record is very positive Wink

    Good luck

    Yeah it's strange. I never know if it's aids or over loaded servers. One thing I can tell you though I always good good gameplay Friday morning for the first 10 games.

    By the way that OTW Mane is glitched apparently don't know how/why but I had him and he felt shit. I heard they messed up with the OTW cards (like the chem issues in 16) and the 'normal' inform version is much better supposedly....

    posted a message on Incredibly slow players

    just played some games, started 9 in 12 all fine no issues. Turned it off just put it back on and had 2 games where my players were unbelievably slow. Sigurdson was out pacing my Son etc. Couldn't defend because there were so slow. Is this put in place EA aids style to slow you down after a decent start or is it because the servers are now fucked?

    posted a message on Ronaldo from the bench?
    Quote from jacobta >>

    I used to play Ronaldo on 8 chem, so I doubt 6 would make much difference.

    I have noticed sometimes players that come on as subs, are slower than they should be

     Yeah me too I've noticed that. I'm hoping if I sub Messi and ronaldo in though you won't feel that. Come to think of it in some games a lot of players you start on 10 chem are slower than they should be too lol.

    Quote from Revron15 >>

    I have just made this team: https://www.futbin.com/17/squad/4137617 - and will be experimenting with subbed strikers as well - so half the reason I'm posting is so i receive notifications when someone else shares their input Wink - in my experience subs generally feel normal - if I'm losing i usually sub on my best players from my other team and ive never felt like they feel off or anything - i'll let you know how it goes for me tonight as well

     Ok nice one. I'm going to do it as i don't want to have to play Bale, Casemiro or modric to tie him in. My prem team is generally much stronger but I do miss ronaldo and Messi. Could get either. Too many players and choices...

    posted a message on Is the EAids / scripting getting worse or more balanced?
    Quote from ih4x3du2 >>

    He guys, here again with the same subject.

     

    Regular elite monthly player and weekly mostly gold 1, played I believe 20 seasons in div 1 with 10 titels. Last night I got relegated for the first time in a few years I believe.. 6 games in a row I had over 60% possesion, dominating the game with everytime 10+ shots vs none to single chance of my opponent. I believe I lost 4 matches and 2 draws.

     

    FIF Dybala 90 + Ronaldo 94 with over 95+ shooting on both seemed to miss every chance and by every chance I mean in a 1 on 1 they hit the ball like 2 meters wide or with a slow weak shot into the opponents hand. I checked the replies, a few bullshit goals I conceded i.e. own goals, scripted goals etc. Even 2 goals where the ball went right trough a foot of my defender without getting deflected. At one goal my IF Handanovic was even positioned next to the goal, the guy shot straight at his body and it still went in.

     

    So weekend league, played 3 games so far and won all 3 but I noticed to getting more EAids against me.

     

    Last game I was dominating again, sent Dybala 1 on 1, put the ball for his left strong foot and tried to do a driven cross body shot (9/10 a goal with Dybala), for some reason my player decided to do a outside foot placed shot putting the ball 2 meters wide. His GK had a goalkick, he kicked the ball long to his NIF Sturridge who was marked by my Manolas. However my Manolas was in front of Sturridge and clearly jumped higher, the ball went towards my goal. My SBC Miranda had a few meters headstart against his TOTS Sigurdsson. The ball was slowly bumping to my goal I was waiting to control the ball to give a pass to my RB Florenzi. For some reason, without me pressing any button yet, my CB made a sliding tackle trying to reach for the ball, missing the ball and his Sigurdsson who was a few meters away took over the ball and went 1 on 1 on goal, ofcourse he scored.

     

    So I just checked the reply. The heading duel between Manolas and Sturridge, the half ball is in the face of Manolas, Sturridge head is a few feet away and still the duel goes to Sturridge. Than the sliding tackle of Miranda, he didn't need to make one, but the AI made him do one.

     

    Do you guys experience more stuff like this?

     

    I mean, you can play that well and dominate a game, but with those sliders and bullshit against you, the outcome of a match and if you become champion or reach silver / gold / elite seems to be predetermined.

     

    I've mentioned it before, one time I sat at 28 wins, last game so a win would take me to elite. 3-0 up with the opponent on a red card. 71th minute, and nothing in my way for a win as I dominated all game, and he had to score 4 goals in 19 minutes with a man down. You can guess the outcome right?

     

     

     

    EDIT:

    Just sat at 7 out of 7 - position 96 of the world and the bullshit starts.. Lost a game by glitched goals by my GK and just 1 on 1 with Dybala in the 2nd minute, he seemed to score but before the ball goes into the net the opponent disconnects, no win, no game lost.

     

     Yeah I think there has been a shift. I'm not as good as you I've won div 1 a few times and finished elite for last month but that's as good as it gets for me. I've just played a few games and hit 50th in the world lol, I know it will all turn to shit though like it does every week.
    I've noticed that as I've improved my opponents keepers just get better and better and mine gets worse and worse. 1 shot against me and it's a goal.i also hit the woodwork so much these days, that never happened to me before much. This seems to have git worse in the last week or 2. Online balancing my arse.

    posted a message on Ronaldo from the bench?

    so I've tried TOTS Mane and I just don't like him. Thinking of buying Ronaldo back but he doesn't fit my current team so I would need to sub him on. Anyone else do this and if so does he play the same on 6 chem as a sub as he does on 10 from the start?

    Quote from blue_eddie >>

    One player I remember from FM or CM, or both? Was Dédé or something similar - he was a LB and was amazing and cheap... you just had to get him a work permit I think before signing him.

     

    Patrick Veiria had so many high stats for mental attributes (lots of 20s), mental attributes were so important in the game. The guy used to play on in the game until he was 34 or something and even though his other stats were on the decline he was still very effective.

     

     

    Yes, the last minute winners were nuts. They even patched it several times in FM to combat some of these bugs.

    I still preferred it when games went through vigorous testing as there was no patching option (e.g internet connections either weren't availalbe or weren't fast enough to get patches etc).


    E.G. When a game was released, it had to be 'almost perfect' and was play tested for so long, there were not that many bugs.


    Yet these days, because of corporate greed and competition, it is the 'quick get it released.... then patch it later' mentality, which I absolutely hate. We should not be play testing a product we have already purchased....

     

    Why don't EA just do an 'open beta' of some sort, or invites 10x more people in for it.... surely it is only beneficial for themselves to have more time invested in play testing?

     

    i know there is far more involved in games these days, but I still don't like 'post release patching'.

     You've got it right there. If you dared to release a game back in the day that didn't work, you had a flop on your hands. I hate patching. It has become the framework of the lazy developer
     Absolutely agree. EA live off this. The game is flawed now but at the start every year they churn out unfinished shit year after year. Remember the penalty business at the start of 16 where if there was any contact in the box it was a penalty every time. I was giving away 3 penalties a game lol.

    I haven't used him, I sold him back then to get my hands on Vieira, who turned out to be dog shit. So can't help you out here Smile

     Really? I always thought Vieria was the ultimate midfielder in my eyes (without actually using him). I could have got him but didn't want to instead of Ronaldo and Messi. He was shit then?

    You might need 10 x 83 if the mobile app doesn't accept the rating

     10x 83 did the job.
     
    Untradable Pyatov 85, definetly not worth giving up 10x a 83 worth 2k coins..
    Agree, squad builders for me have been absolutely gash. Keep reading of people getting amazing players from them. I just get Karius...

    posted a message on TOTS Lallana and Herrera
    Quote from jacobta >>

    So I decided to go with TOTS David Luiz on 7 chem at CDM, and he is a god there - like broken how good he is. Moved POTY Kante to RCM as he's actually adequate offensively, and obviously all around amazing. 

     That's not a bad call actually. Beast tastic!
    Back on topic I tried TOTS Lallana and while he felt quick and strong (Kante like almost) I didn't like his size, I was used to Pogba. So I sold him and just bought TOTS Alli as he's got the size and better stats than NIF Pogba so will see how it goes. Think it works pretty well with 3 CM's with different work rates, M/M, H/M and M/H.

    Quote from Seki>>

    Ratings are out of hand anyway. How on earth can Jens fucking Toornstra be 90 and have the same rating as 2IF Pogba... It's nice we'll see some other teams perhaps, but this is rediculous. 

    That reminds me. I read you packed Paulo 'fucking' Maldini, thinking of getting him as a 7 chem CB how did you find him?

     

    regarding ratings yeah I don't take any notice of them. To be honest I used to dismiss special cards as bollocks too. However after swapping from a pretty much full inform squad to a NIF squad with the same players for the DKT, I can honestly say that the special cards are much much better. Fior the first time ever in FIFA I can actually see and feel the difference between NIF's and IF's. - where did I put my credit card Smile w/ teeth

    I am good friends with someone that works in the football media, I told him one year that Pato would be the next big thing out of Brazil (because he was super crazy rated in FM), to this day he still takes the piss out of me for that Smile w/ teeth

     

    The whole keeping players happy stuff in the recent releases has made it a chore. Your CB gets sent off, player X doesn't like you didn't discipline him enough, so you discipline the next guy to get sent off, player X is still unhappy and now the most recent guy to get sent off is unhappy since you disciplined him. Then you sign a player/give someone a new contract, half your team want to leave/are unhappy because they want more money

     Yeah I agree. I liked it best when it was 'championship manager' and it was just text commentary in game. Used to play with Wednesday and use Chris Bart-Williams who had 'flair 20' lol. Ha ha what a guy. The younger people on here will have no idea what I'm talking about!

    Yeah the gameplay has been fine for me too recently, I really cannot complain and I'm the first to when it's shit. What's helped me is changing to a Netgear Nighthawk router, made a difference that from the shit 'smart' hub I was using from BT...
