    E3 - Packed a Fabinho but literally F All else. Can't really complain though, Fab is going for 74k right now, i'll use him real quick in a BPL team for the Icon Swaps objective then get rid I reckon.

    E1 got me Toni Kroos. I guess it was worth it to chuckle at him doing the stupid dance after the walkout...lol.

    Militao and Areola in the other. 30k helps too.

    In the icon SB objectives can you sub on non MLS, Chinese, etc league players and it still count? Just have to start with 11 from the league?

    So much easier when you don’t have to grind it on a Sunday night to pile up the points

    These are actually miserable to play lol the cpu is so inconsistent. Sometimes it feels normal and other times it feels like they are cheating

    YES! And when they are cheating it’s extreme.....cpu delivers the perfect pass at all times in these situations. Also their defense infront the box is like a back 4 of VVDs. And it’s so scripted. I went to 2 penalty shoot out against 72/75 rated teams. On the flip side I sometimes beat those sides 4-0 5-0.

    I had one goal scored against me where my keeper saved the ball and the cpu’s forward headed it (while still in the keepers hand) across the line and it counted. Mind you my keeper still haven’t dropped the ball. 😐

    Perfect passes, perfect runs and they rarely miss if they get a shot. They also cross a ton and score headers

    The only cheat the AI has is that loan VVD in teams.

    Apart from that it's tedious and boring, but never difficult. Put a bunch of bronzes in my MLS squad, still ez wins as long as you sub on some proper attackers.

    I agree. Some games I played last night were insane. Also how is it that they can adjust AI gk to be Godlike but all gk we use suck in any mode?

    Van Dijk is a rock cant get past him, Nick Pope must have save with feet trait saved everything.
    Dont stand off at all Lingard just bent a 40 yarder past Neuer who didnt even move.

    Yeah, one thing that's now obvious again are these artifically boosted sliders. AI can first time shots from anywhere and they fly in.

    Glad it’s just not me. Fired up two quick games to see some of the changes and struggled against two weak *** bronze teams like I never have before. Including losing a 90th minute deflection crazy shot 😂

    I’m all for a challenge but some of the changes are a bit out there. Had 2-3 balls just die, and I mean die in the midfield when I had a player wide open. Never seen a ball stop moving so fast 🤦‍♂️ Will try some more games tonight but dang that was nuts.

    I lost 2-1 to a bad team earlier today, was 1-0 up then had a player sent off on 65th, but I’d still normally not have a problem on legendary.

    Wasn’t happy with how it went so switched from 41212(2) to a 442 and won the next game 4-0. Might see how that goes now.

    Switching to a 3atb formation can really help since CPU teams are almost all on defensive tactics.

    Yeah but then they randomly go God mode and absolutely annihilate you...

    Doesn't really feel any different on Legendary after this patch. Only thing I've really noticed is the AI doesn't just bomb down the wing all game now spamming crosses.

    I've honestly found its better to attack them rather than sit back but that's just me.

    When they start ping ponging the ball around with first time passing, you know you're in big trouble.

    Pause the game when they do this and then restart. I find it resets the AI setup.

    I have actually started to play with the possession tactics and I find it works well. Sometimes sideways or backwards or even switching the play helps to create good chances.

    I know it was pre-patch last night, but I played an 87 rated squad w/ Neymar, Salah, Aguero and others. They played a 343 and I actually won 4-nil. I was completely locked on though and made sure my defense had a good shape and enough players behind the ball.

    Maybe I have also found a good balance to my squad, who knows?

    This was legendary by the way.
