    Is the gameplay better than 18 or equally bad? Because if it's not much better I can just hop on 18 to play a game or 2 here and there

    It's different, slower, so you can't just burn away with pacey players as much anymore. You can have fun with 19, but as soon as you hit the higher divisions in rivals it's a clone fest with the same teams and same playstyle all the time. I rarely played WL before this edition, I found that WL was actually more playable, and enjoyable than rivals in 19.

    If you like WL, then I think 19 is probably the best FIFA that there has been for it. If you like to chill casually in rivals, then you will get frustrated. I just don't have the time to dedicate to WL, if I did, I'd probably still play.

    I get all that I need from a casual side of things from 18, so if I want a game, I play that. If I could let you use my account, I would. About 6 million if I liquidated just gathering dust.

    Yeah I'm just looking for a more casual experience for sure. Weekend league has and never will be for me. I'll just pop in 18 if I want to get a game in. 19 doesn't seem to be worth the effort

    Tbh with you I saw that new Ibra and saw he has 5* skills again and that's the only reason the thought crossed my mind lol but then I realized he's in the MLS so making a team around him probably wouldn't have been too easy without a ton of coins either

    I'll be honest, Ibra has nearly sucked me back in. I just feel a bit frustrated with it. I'm enjoying Football Manager more at the moment with my Sheff Utd save.

    A RTG type thing with ibra could maybe be decent fun. No rules or anything but just building around him as time goes on. Not sure how long the sbc is even there for though

    Ah ok great. The game is on sale for I think 2 more days so I'll have plenty of time if I decide to get it. If I can put together a decent team around that ibra to start I think I will get it

    :joy: Yeah, I've got mates that are Wednesday, and mates that are UTD, just fancied a save with UTD. I usually use Bolton tbh because it's always quite difficult.

    80 miles away. For some reason loads of South Yorkshire people seem to move to North Yorkshire...although, I can't speak, I moved from West Yorkshire. Turns out, we all like the Hot Fuzz mentality that you find in North Yorkshire.

    Public transport is great, but if you're in a car it's terrible I agree. Up here it's miles of country roads and suicidal pheasants.

    I think you need to do the basics first, it's like a tutorial I suppose.

    I've just been playing casually. No money spent or anything. Been doing loads of these league upgrade packs and have gotten enough high ups to do some other quality SBCs such as POTM Van Dijk.

    Could probably build a fan MLS/Sweden hybrid around guys like Scream Forsberg, MLS reward Rooney etc.
