    Only played enough to get Alex T and a couple of the FS tokens.

    I stupidly went and redeemed for WL. Not even played a single second this weekend...have some time free this morning and later this evening so might get on and play a few with my new teams, went on the web app and spent all my coins on putting together a few teams ;)

    I was lucky enough to get an invite for the closed beta (FUT and kick off) so been playing a fair bit of that

    Please tell me that the gameplay is decent, surely finishing is better, El tornado crosses gone and Ai defending nerfed drastically?

    Wish I could speak more about it but run a risk of getting banned :joy:

    All I’m going to say is it’s not great, actually less enjoyable than the 18 beta.

    Make it that what you will :wink:

    Took a long **** break from the game again and enjoyed my summer, but had a look at prices and bloody hell are they cheap! Think I’ll jump on again and test a few cards I couldn’t afford during TOTS. Can only assume gameplay is still awful but that’s what I’ve come to expect from the game at this point lol.

    Due to only few people on at least there is no lag...only problem is there are mainly 2 type of people still on, the triehard noobs or the casuals...in small % the "good guys" so many frustrating games...

    Yeah I can believe that, I’ve been playing NBA 2K19 casually and with only 3 weeks left of the game there are still people trying their best to ruin it for others. The gaming community really has gone downhill...

    Either way I’ll give it a try, not concerned about winning or losing just wanna test out a few cards.

    What’s your team looking like now? I’d imagine it’s stacked if you’ve been playing through the summer, looks like prices got nuked.

I have basically everyone i could have wanted ;) As you i just played around with some new teams, dutch, barca, bundes and la liga teams. Mostly i did sbcs as packs are just insane, had 1x 6! special cards in a 100k pack including 4 tots

    Ah cool man sounds enjoyable. I just completed VVD and got some good fodder back so will have a look at some icon SBC’s. Did you get that Pogba? I’m considering it but I’m not sure about him next to Gullit and Vieira, seems a bit heavy for a midfield.

    One of the worst bits about this game and it’s never going to change so the game will be affected next year....toxic community behaviour.

    I didnt get Pogba, seemed overpriced and i already have like 5 top end midfielders including gullit, socrates, vieira, matthaus goretzka havertz etc ;) If you can i would get Matthaus, with stuff still in packs he is pretty cheap AND imo better as cdm than vieira. He is like a kante on drugs :smiley:

    I ended up completing Pogba, SMS and Griezmann. Only cost me 300k and some fodder, pack weight is mental right now.

    I stupidly went and redeemed for WL. Not even played a single second this weekend...have some time free this morning and later this evening so might get on and play a few with my new teams, went on the web app and spent all my coins on putting together a few teams ;)

    I was lucky enough to get an invite for the closed beta (FUT and kick off) so been playing a fair bit of that

    Please tell me that the gameplay is decent, surely finishing is better, El tornado crosses gone and Ai defending nerfed drastically?

    @Addicksfan

    Yeah can't really say much..........

    Been playing a lot of Madden, not raged once...went back to Fifa 19 to get fut swap Renato "golden boy" Sanches, playing Rivals, within a minute of the first game I'm raging.....quit and put Madden back on......

    That's me done with 19 and at this stage I'm not ordering 20

    Heard Madden is supposed to be a pretty good game - if you like the sport obviously. Sounds like both offline and online is pretty rewarding in terms of rewards and. Thought about giving it a go now that most other games are dead but it’ll take a while to learn the plays and so on I’d imagine.

    I'm a big american footie fan......the gameplay is really good,

    If you want to learn the game whilst getting rewarded you can, through solo battles (squad battles) and challenges...when you feel like your ready for online you have challenges such as "house rules" and seasons as well as Weekend league.....

    Lots of choice and variation in the game with great rewards to keep you hooked....

    Done with 19 as well, and will probably skip 20. EA did us so dirty this year.

    Never forget how they blamed us.

    @Addicksfan - Madden worth a shot this year then?

    Not played since 17 but definitely enjoyed it back then.

    Yep totally worth it.....Franchise is typical of any EA sports game in that it lacks depth, but is still a great game.....MUT is totally worth it, so much to do, will keep you going for ages!!

    Won the first game but my word what an absolute lag fest. The delay was hilarious :joy:
