    So i opened my starter packs and got Neres from my favorite club AJAX in my first pack :#

    I had a quick check and saw on squad battle that someone already has 28000 points so apparently people have the game much earlier then us.

    Hopefully i can play some games tomorrow night to get started.

    Is the wep app out for you guys? i cant get on yet.

    No it's not out Ea have **** up as per usual

    How?
    they said it would be the 19th why would they not release it by 10pm central European time and 11pm Eastern European time when people are about to sleep I'm from the Uk but it makes no sense to release it this late as in most of the world it will bet the 20th by the time they release it .Also Releasing it so long out after early access is a bit of a joke usually they do a soft launch the day before, it will probably not even work when they release it as well.

    So, a retailer decides to sell the games off, and "EA have screwed up" …

    As much as I cannot defend them at times, look at the facts and don't blame them for something they have no control over!

    Comments like these are simply daft!

    Nice job @Addicksfan … that's a decent start already!

    Must say that I am itching now to get on, but no early access :disappointed:

    I wasn't on about the retailers I meant they have screwed up by not releasing it yet when early access was released 5 hours ago and for many time zones it will come out on the 20th when usually the web app comes out the day before early access not the other way round.

    Fair enough. Apologies for that then.

    Keep in mind it's still early for the Americans as most are probably still at work/school. I'm not sure if EA does geographic segmentation for their financial statements, but I'm willing to bet that a good chunk of their revenue comes from the Americas, so it's most likely a strategic business move on their part.
  • I can’t wait to get home. @Addicksfan I might rip my 12k too. We need pics of teams!!!

    ah so everyone that is opening packs is doing it on Ea access wasting their 10hours :D

    Yes, although no sign of the web app coming anytime soon.

    It should be today but obviously was held up. Fingers crossed although with EA Access I’m happy.

    I need the Companion App more than the web app. Can’t refresh that trade pile during a bathroom break at work on the web app lol.

    Behold the pace upfront … :lol:
  • @VanBasten12 I'm Bundesliga - just because thats a few people I got. Filled out the team, might give it a go in a few.

    This is gonna be alot rougher than I remember, lol.

    Good luck @Absting159 … I only tried the demo last night for the first time - struggle to score a goal.

    And that was with players from the 'big teams'!

    I'm terrible at this game, LOL. It feels pretty good though, I'm just unable to finish. Did 3 drafts, won 1 game. 1 Division Rivals (played an 85 overall squad that was all loans) lost 2-6, and did Squad Battles on Legendary and lost both of those.

    Great start!!!

    4bNbXLH.png

    Best Pulls from 12k - currently have 32k

    Sterling - 40k
    De Vrij (x2) - 3k
    Albiol
    Jonas
    Neto
    Aduriz
    Pereira
    Kepa
    Rabiot
    Fred - 17k
    Bailey (x2) - 5k
    Pulisic (x2)


    Club Value with 12k: ~100k

    This has to be the worst 12k FP I've ever opened. The question is do I let Sterling and Fred fly now. I don't remember what happens at the full release.

    Just remember @Absting159, a lot of the hardcore FIFA addicts would have EA Access. Probably wouldn't be trying draft now.

    I'd be going offline with 1k coin boosts, to ramp up the coins first.

    Yeah this is arguably the toughest Rivals will be all year. Not too many casuals gonna be around during early access. Should start to get a real feel for where you stand next week I would say

    Wait Selling them until game is out on 27th. Prices will rise @Absting159

    I can't **** figure out how to score/get into scoring positions in this game. Never really find myself open

    What formation are you using? I’m having success playing out wide a lot and finding space that way. Crossing is really strong so far and you can always play it back to the middle of a cross doesn’t open up

    I'm using the 433 (2). What formations do you like?

    Been using the 4141. I’m definitely still getting used to it though. Not something I can stay in if the opponent is just sitting deep, which a lot seem to be doing right now.

    Just ran into a guy using straight up FIFA 18 tactics. He was sat deep, never switched to his defenders even once (at one point tracking all the way back with his striker), and just punted it up the field to one of his two players that actually stayed near the halfway line and attempted to counter.

    He only had 1 shot though 70 minutes and didn’t change a thing about how he was playing. I got tired of it and switched to 3421 and tried to pressure the heck out of him. FIFA is what it is so he scored on a lucky deflection on the counter.

    How he enjoyed himself getting 3 shots all game I’ll never know. Nice to know we’ll be having to beat the same exact kind of player again. Hopefully I get these new tactics figured out and I’ll just pin them in their own half all game. Hopefully.

    @Absting159 what I usually do every year is play offline for the first week to use my boosts and get a feel for the game. I trade quite a lot too.

    By the end of the first week the divisions have stabilised, leaving you to coast to your level at your own pace.

    That being said, WL isn’t important to me, although this year, I’m thinking of playing it again.
