    Yes.

    Every time you start the game during the trial it will tell you how long is left in whole hours i.e.

    You have less than 10 hours remaining
    You have less than 9 hours remaining

    It won't keep you posted if you stay in the game. Only when you load the game. So if you spend 2 hours in the game first time you'll never see the 'less than 9 hours' message.

    And when you get to 0 it will just die without warning! It's easy to keep track of it with the stopwatch on your phone though. Just start and stop it from when you first launch to when you turn the console off/quit the app.

    also need to make sure you dont run out of time tbh

    if you run out.. mid game.. you end up missing out on the web app as it becomes locked until you log back into the game on console. Happened to me, super annoying

    Another thing is to make sure you close the game when you're done so it doesn't run in the background

    I'm gonna try and be restrained and spread it out. 26th is full release so 2 hours a day on 21st-25th takes me nicely to full access....

    Gonna load up FP on the first day then switch to web app and open through them and then play draft throughout the 10 hours I think

    That's always my aim but I normally blow it in a couple of days. I was hoping City were home on the Saturday as that's a day where I basically wouldn't be able to play it anyway but we're away, so I can see me having used it all by the end of the 23rd :lol:

    Think I might just go for two five hour sittings. I usually play better in larger sittings so hopefully it'll work out!

    There was a way to play unlimited last year. Hope it works this year too lol.

    Am I wrong to assume that you'll come across more courteous players during early access because people won't want to waste their time watching replays and running to the half-way line shooshing and dabbing?

    This is the FIFA community. You're more likely to come across people who think it's funny to waste everyone's 10 hours.

    Exactly the same as any FIFA. Just because you have limited time to play doesn't mean they will act all nice :D

    How was that again? Was it where you require another account with EA Access then you sign in and then switch to your main profile or something? I'm sure it was something like that.

    It's the first time they can watch how replays look, what are the new celebrations. Why shouldn't they watch them?

    Yeah because watching a 3 yard tap in cutback is somewhat exciting right ?

    Does EA normally put out special packs at the start of the game? Or can we only open the 7.5k ones

    Go easy on him. Probably rarely scores, so makes the most of it when he does :trollface:

    Just don't spend your last hour on FUT mate. That's why you have career mode.
