    Are we comparing apples and oranges here? What game mode do you play? I play SB and WL, I want to make sure we are talking about the same. I play FUT Seasons too, and for whatever reasons that's different.

    There's a petition going on right now, https://www.change.org/p/ea-games-fixfifa, and there's over 40k signatures as of today, probably not enough to make EA do anything since there's millions of people who buy this game, but enough people that are voicing their discontent with Fifa 18.

     

    I think we have a different experience with the game, and that can totally be the case, I play Fifa Career mode at the end, usually start around March/April, and the experience is completely different, I don't think many people complaint about that game mode. But if you are playing a real competitive mode, as Ovvy who is 80-0 and still thinks the kick off stuff is happening and who is still bringing it up, then is a different story. I'm not saying you don't play competitive, I'm thinking maybe you don't play those modes. SB is not competitive unless you want it be, unless you try to be top 100. Maybe you are trying to play that way, and maybe that's why we see the game different.

    posted a message on Low Driven shots in SB

    Another patch and they still didn't fix this. I just played a game, goal keeper on the right post, my player on the left, pass the ball to him, wide open goal, a simple tap, I made the mistake and double tap shot button, and the shot goes to the crowd! Unbelievable.

    So yes, this is a glitch of sorts, but I seriously doubt there is a kick off boost. I mean: why on earth would EA want you to score those goals in particular? In my opinion, there is a general problem with dribbling being over powered. This is something I occassionally do suffer from, but also utilize heavily. This problem is however not only present during kick off but a general issue in the latest editions of the game.
     It's not that they want you to score from kick off. What EA is doing trying to "simulate real life", so what they do is make your team reaction slower at kick off, everyone see it, it's obvious, but why do they have to do that??? You don't always score, but it's a fact that most times your team's reaction specially after scoring is slower, the players feel heavier, and a lot of times this results in the other team scoring a goal.
    EA is not saying let them score a goal after kick off.
    The fact is the game has a lot of problems, to the point where Fifa 17 was better than this crap, and that says a lot about this game because Fifa 17 was total crap too. The first month after the game was released, the game was smoothier, yes people complaint about all the passing and how easy it was to control the ball, I was not happy about this either but I have to be honest, the first month before all the patching the game was at least different than Fifa 17, now I feel like I'm playing the same game.

    It's kind of odd they all sold on the same batch, do you think EA is cleaning up the market and buying to discard? I see in the market players for a lot cheaper.

    lol I just noticed that, I bought 100 650 coins players yesterday and sold them all for 1300 already. Now I need to wait for the market to go down again to buy them.

    posted a message on U guys noticed SB change this week?

    I posted the link on a different thread, they are encouraging people to not buy packs this Black Friday/Cyber Monday to send a message to EA, I will not play WL this weekend either, and I'll try to do as little as possible in the game, the hardest part will be not to trade as I will lose out a lot of coins so I'm still considering that one...

    Not sure how effective it will be, you can find it on twitter, #fixFifa

    Almost 25,000 people have signed the petition already and the list is growing fast, I think it will get EA's attention but not sure how much they will do to fix the game.

    posted a message on Question About DKT

    I still SB just enough to reach Elite 3, you don't need to play a lot of games to reach it.

     

    I was getting Gold3 reward for WL, and they were crap too. So playing WL won't get you the better rewards, it's all luck. DKT is different than WL, but it can be as frustrating too, reaching the finals a few times in a row and losing it can get you upset at times even when losing to better players, but I have experience less lag and delays on DKT than in WL, WL for me is a complete mess.

     

    As far as the formations, I haven't seen many defending with 5 backs, personally I've been using the 3-4-1-2, but I can switch to a 5-2-1-2 and play similar if I go full attack, I used it on Online Draft with Hazard as my LWB and Messi as my RWB and it worked as both players keep making runs on the opponents half, I've tried it with my regular team with Cuadrado and Perisic and it doesn't seem to work as well, they stay back too often and most times I ended having to wait too long for the team to get forward and end up losing the ball. 

    Most formation I see have 4 backs, and the 4-1-2-1-2 is very popular right now with a lot of the experts suggesting it because of the ping pong passes you can do, that and similar formation is what I see most times.

    posted a message on BF and the Market

     How is Overmars? I'm running a Calcio A and using Perisic at LW but wondering if he would be worth the upgrade at 700k, or if I should use those coins for a midfielder but there's no one I like for that price to replace Pjanic, and he has been performing for me, great passer.

    Yes 700 is the max for 5 goals I play Legendary. I usually get between 2000 and 2400 points per game, depends on how good the other team is. I've done the math again and I wouldn't be top 100 even if I had clean sheets, I believe is 75 * 2.1 for having the clean sheet in Legendary, so that's 157 points extra. The average right now is 2600 per game to be top 100, so I probably wouldn't make it anyway.

    I just can't remember the last time I had a game without giving up any goals.

    To better explain it I did this video. I know I went a little soft on defense specially in the Box, as I didn't want to give up a penalty, but this is an 68 rated team I think and they were really bad, yet on those 3 minutes they manage to score on their first and only shot on target. Sorry about the quality I don't usually do videos so I just downloaded something free to make it:

     

     

    Anyway I beat this team so easily as I should had, 10-1. They had 3 shots and only 1 on target, and of course that was a goal, and yes this is the ones that looks less scripted, but I have this happen to me every match, I can't stop them from scoring the full 90 minutes, no matter how little they attack.

    posted a message on Icon SBCs

    Do you think the Icons will drop in price, I've noticed something strange with the expensive players, on Sunday and Thursday after the SB rewards and WL rewards are given, the expensive players actually go up in price, at least the ones I've been watching. I'm worried this might happen BF as I wanted to get me a good Icon for a better price. I guess the logic is that people get a lot of coins those days and they don't care to pay more.

    Today has been odd too, I usually buy about 50 Calcio A players on Sunday after SB packs are released, and it usually takes me a few days to sell them, I sold them all already with BF just a few days ago is kind of strange because no new SBC has been released. I still made like 20k coins but wondering if I undersold them because of something I don't know.

    I didn't believe in scripting till this edition. This is clearly happening in SB where you completely dominate the other team, and yet all of the sudden they become unstoppable on 1 play and they score a goal. It's nearly impossible to get a clean sheet against the AI on SB. The crazy thing is that my players won't respond to my instructions, and I can see the goal coming. I get Elite 1 on SB without much effort and I can dominate those teams with ease, the full game I feel I'm Germany and the other team is Nicaragua or one of those teams that don't even play soccer but have a national team just because, yet at one point this team becomes Brazil and scores on and there's no way I can stop them and the game ends 8-1 because EA gives you less points if you let them score.

    I recognize the feeling that my chosen level of difficultyin SB  doesn’t lead to a consistent level of opposition in the sense that all matches are equally difficult. I haven’t really experienced any differences in regards to changes in difficulty inside games. I do however think it is beyond questioning that the game uses rubber banding in some offline game modes (open a new account and it will present a dialogue telling that, so no secret really). Whether it also goes for squad battles is hard to tell, but it wouldn’t come as a surprise. SB is by the way the only offline mode that I really have enjoyed playing up until now. It’s just more varied.
    A friend of mine from college complained about alternating difficulty inside SB matches as well. When I had him over last week, we checked it out together. Turns out that his experiences were consistent with AI tactical changes. When the AI played on ultra offensive, he had difficulties getting rid of the pressure and would end up trying to clear the ball out of his box rather than maintaining possession long enough to move his team forward. Simply put, he simply wasn’t able to cope with all mentality settings on his preferred difficulty level.
    As for scripting in SB, then I don’t quite get the idea. If EA wanted to give you less points, a simpler solution would be to ‘gear’ the point earning mechanism differently / set the thresholds at a higher level rather than attempt to script goals in. 
     
     
     Pressure doesn't translate into goals. I think we are talking about two different things. You can pressure the full game and then a counter can cost you a goal and you can lose the game. I'm talking about 1 play where the other team feels unstoppable, 1 play not 5 or 30 minutes of pressure where I'm under attack and they shoot like 10 times and they finally score.
    Everyone plays different and everyone has a different experience with the game. I'm not a top 100 player is SB, and the biggest reason is because I'm unable to get clean sheets. I win most games and I manage to score 4+ goals almost every game, but after you score 5 goals you get 700 points and that's the limit, even you score 10 goals you still only get 700 points.
    I guess top 100 players know what to do once they are on top to stop them from scoring, and I don't and I just have to figure that out. Maybe I'll just stop going to the corner and hold the ball for 45 minutes...

    posted a message on This is so frustrating!!!

    Is it the players you are selling? How do you know they aren't showing? Are you using a 2nd account to find them. I have noticed the PS4 kind of "caches" the results for me, so I have to change something, like the minimum price or bid to get the latest results.

    posted a message on Um.....what’s with the difficulty?

    By the way, I started 0-8 this WL, and I'm getting destroyed, and I feel like the players aren't helping at all, I'm about to throw the Ps4 out the window. I'm done for this weekend, I don't think I'm even going to try any more, I finished the Div4 yesterday, finished 6-0-1, maybe that's what triggered this losing streak. 

    I normally finished WL with around 20 wins, and I'm sure if I continue playing eventually I start winning, but why is it that way? Why don't I feel in control, even when I'm winning, I destroy the opponents, it's never close, lose or win.
