    Disappointing end, got to 17-2 this afternoon and couldn’t be bothered to play any more. That’s it for me, new job + back to uni for next 3 years no more Xbox :#

    Is your uni like a jail or how are you not able to continue playing there? :D

    Hes going to the university of hard knocks (aka jail)

    You get to play computer games in UK prisons.

    For the next 3 years 2/3 of my time will be hospital based and the other 1/3 at uni. A big step up in work load so sacrifices have to be made :D

    I played computer games (mainly FIFA and FM) regularly even whilst doing my clinical rotations...think you’re overreacting :#

    As a friend once said "if uni work threatens to stop me from drinking then I rather take one semester longer before stopping to drink" :trollface:

    I'm studying for a whole year for my state exam now, must have put 2000 hours or so into that one set of exams, still wouldn't stop playing Fifa and/or get drunk. Studying isn't everything. You are becoming insane if you do nothing else but studying for extended periods of time.

    True, back when I was at uni there was no companion app for FIFA...good thing as I definitely would’ve failed.

    More competitive than D1 2500 skill rating ;)

    Didn’t do any work experience really, I applied last year and took learnings for that and reapplied. Was lucky to get an offer after initially on the reserve list

    Careful it may not be an impressive enough record for our nerd overlords and then you may be made fun of.

    Well, at least nobody is likely to “lol squad battles” me.

    I never manage to go 1-1 with any player, yet have a win/lose ratio of 5:1 (0 squad battles played). I can't figure out how people do it. The only way I can make it work is to force it all to the striker, but it costs you games.

    But nice record mate :) .

    Can tell just from the short snippets in the video that crab walking is going to a major issue once more.

    Strafe dribbling wasn’t that strong in the beta imo. Maybe I wasn’t playing against strong opposition

    Why stop the WL? The only mode worth playing

    Now I'm stuck playing madden 20 until fifa is released. I was only playing 5-10 games each weekend but I enjoyed it.

    Its a lot easier if you're playing with a lone striker in a 433 or 4231(2). 2 strikers split goals. I found my CAM scored more goals than my strikers in 41212(2).

    I played 4231 with R9, Havertz, CR7 and PIM Cruyff as front 4. I never lacked goals, but never got 1-1 ratio with any of them.
