    I'm at 5-4 right now despite feeling like I'm playing well. I just can't score in some games, often having double figure shots on target and then losing 2-0. TOTS Alisson is my absolute nemesis, to the point I felt compelled to buy him and see for myself.

    TOTS Alison has been immense for me - such a big upgrade over NIF DDG. Obviously if the game wants you to concede, there’s nothing he can do, but he’s been a rock.

    One noticeable thing is that he comes haring out of his goal for long through balls (without any input from me), which DDG never used to do.

    Ended up in G2 in the end. I **** up a couple of games on Saturday, leaving me with 4 games to get 3 wins out on Sunday.
    Since I thought this would never happen anyway, decided to play a game just for the fun of it. And won, And won the next. And won the next as well.
    Gave the last one away to some guy who was La Croquetta'ing me from start.

    All in all, weird weekend. Felt I played terrible, lots of close games, 1 game where I got oblitarated by an all gold Portugese team (81 rated) with 5-0 (though hitting the woodwork 5 times myself) .

    Cant wait for my Kampl and Schultz' picks! :)

    Didn't have time as i watched how we beated Canada in ice hockey championship final... Was such a good game that i enjoyed too many beers :)

    Not realy need picks as my pack luck is horrible right now. Only need tots Dumfries if gets one. Bought prime Makelele after i sold tots Wijnaldum and still have 1,2M to burn. Probably will buy prime Crespo and finish pim Desaily. After that im done.

    Had the most dramatic weekend. Started off 8-2, then sluggish gameplay and a few disconnects hit. Got to the point where I needed to go 5-5 to hit G2, and I just kept losing to teams with 1 shot on target all game. They'd score in the 90th and I'd lose in PKs and stuff. Those type of games.

    I ended up securing the G2 bag in my final game. I was up 1-0 to a guy I was dominating the whole game. He scores in the 90th. We go to extra time. I go up, he levels in the 119th. PKs I go down 2-0 early, hitting the woodwork. Somehow I plow through on sheer instinct, saving 3 PKs in a row to win the game in the end, and guarantee my Bundesliga player picks Thursday. I'm still mad it came that close though.

    Well i ques i could share my WL go (decided to try it out once again):

    Friday evening: smooth gameplay, everything was really responsive on my side, ended up 5w/1l, could not play any more...

    Saturday evening: I dont know if it is the point needed for S3 or what, but the gameplay was horendous. I played i think 9 more games to get that 1 win (2 players from 9 were better - I am fine with that, but the rest of the matches were just silly: in almost all of the games it started fine (responsive aswell), went up a goal or 2, but then I just could not play any more (it was like i was hit with some serious lag and unresponsivenes - now try defending croceta and cross abuse in that sort of conditions :/ ) and in every single game oppo managed to get back in the game and in 75% of them win it in the 90th minute, with either a cross or rebound). It ticked me off so much, i just turned the console off after i got S3.

    I am not sure if it is the day to day experiance that differs so much, or the way the Wl is set up (matchmaking), but after the first 5 wins the gameplay was unrecognisable (i hit the post atleast 2 times per game, my CR7 who was the star of the team before, now managed to sky it twice infront of open goal, or would hit the corner flag on green timed low driven, it was just silly to see...I would go as far to say the experiance was like playing 2 different games IMO).

    Not really sure if it was even wise to give it a go, as i can just see me getting Kampl as my best Bundesliga pick (he is my nationalities tots, so i already bought him btw :) )

    And the really stupid thing is that I am actually considering another go next week. :s

    Grinded to 11-9 then quit there. Gameplay was awful, 3 times I counted that something went seriously wrong. First time I was winning 3-0 and got resuming match on screen for 5 minutes until I had to quit, cost me the game and win. Second time the game wouldn't let either player pause or change tactics and at HT froze again causing a quit and reboot to get going again. Finally third time there was no pauses, no tactic changes and add to that there was no sound during the game at all plus the camera went completely black. Superb stuff. :D

    Well done to those grinding through this weekend - May your puck luck match your dedication...

    Having lost my first 5 in “unfortunate circumstances”, when I got back home late on Sunday night I was in two minds to bother going for S3.

    But thought I may as well play a couple of games just for the Rivals points, and kept on winning - against teams & players that were arguably stronger than what I’d lost to on Friday.

    So I went: 0-5, then 6-0.

    I called it a day at G3, 14 wins and 8 losses. Overall I felt like the standard of opponent was really high this weekend. Most people were good players but even more surprisingly I don't think I got dabbed once.

    I was losing 3-0 to someone inside 14 minutes, thought about rage quitting but thought to myself what good does that do. So went into tactics and started trying out random formations I would NEVER ever use. Stumbled on 5-2-2-1 at HT, came back second half to win 5-3. Either it worked or Lord Voldamort switch sides at HT.

    3-4 currently, shocking start. What hope have you got when **** like this happens?

    Had my best ever start and after not playing a single game for a week. Won 4 of the first 5 with 3 rage quits, funny how that works, my team was absolutely brilliant. Didn't change a thing and suddenly the goo mannequinism started, everyone standing still, not intercepting or making runs and the defensive line having a natter on the half way line all the time. Lost 5 in a row conceding a minimum 5 goals each time and barely scoring myself. Suddenly in the 11th game the team comes back to life. Now 5-6 after 11 games. Gold 3 looks unlikely.

    Yep, as predicted, finished silver 1 again. Needed 3 wins from 4 games at the end, lost 2 so was able to stop there. The last game summed it up well really, 21 shots, 9 on target. Lost 2-1.
