FIFA 18 launched and it was great gameplay wise. Slower and more focused on passing and creating chances instead of the "put a 99 paced Musa and just run" gameplay. I know we had some goalkeeper problems but thats another matter.
Then after the 1st patch the game became a full FIFA 17 part 2. Fully focused on pace just like the little kids like it.
I'm afraid FIFA 19 is going to be the same. My hype is not as strong as it was one year ago.
