I've got to say... This is the most enjoyable FIFA for many years... So far. Please don't patch it EA.
I've got a full Manchester United RTG team (check out my thread - https://fifaforums.easports.com/en/discussion/607379/manchester-united-road-to-glory)
, but the gameplay is so much more realistic and no longer relies just on pace and 5* skill moves. I love the fact that players like Maguire have been an absolute rock for me. Cavani is a usable striker even though he has 66 pace, but these are some of the reasons why the game is so much better this year.
I feel like in the games I've played too that you actually have to try and break a team down, with slower, more realistic build-up play attempting to find that killer pass. This FIFA is so much more fun, enjoyable and realisitic, and I hope it stays this way!
It's nice to put a positive post on here, because usually it's just full of negativity!
The rivals system is much worse in this FIFA though.
All the self relegators are fuming due to the new rivals system as well which makes it even better. Of course in a football game we need a promotion/relegation system but sadly this playerbase couldn't be trusted with that.
Quick Q... If I get through the Play-Offs this week, am I able to enter next week instead of this week by chossing?
one correction from me
When it comes to using different cards this year I am absolutely loving it. Currently running a Seria A hybrid with EPL and using Zlatan Ibrahimovic as my strike and I enjoy to have him up there. I packed Haland in my loyality packs and used him for awhile but I rather prefer Zlatan over Haland due to the slow and clunky Haland feels. Zlatan feels agile, and quick, even though he isn't fast.
Also using Jorginho, 55pace (as a cam) and he isn't the best, also feels a bit slow when you sprint with him, but he is also agile so more than usable imo but perhaps as a CM, rather than a CAM.
I did pack untradable rashford and so far, I kind of dislike his card. He is clinical infront of the goal but somehow off in the game. Perhaps the formation doesn't suit my playstyle with him, but IF Anderson on the rightflank does the job a lot better.
My fullbacks both have 80pace and it is more than enough.
This makes it a lot more fun, because you can actually use a lot of different cards and be pleased with them, even though they're not part of the META.
Got to say I haven't had that many finesse shots scored against me yet, but have scored a few. Goalkeepers definitely seem a lot better this year, but I think that's a good thing that it's harder to score! Goalkeepers have been pretty useless in previous FIFA's.
For crying out loud, are you ever going to change the record?
We get it. We're all in agreement. We understand.
We disagree then, vehemently. But that's alright, it's subjective after all
Then why are so many still crying about the rivals system yourself included???
Last year really scarred you didn't it? Pretty much every thread I go into if you happen to post there 100% it will be about the same thing. Just boring pal.
Multiple threads crying about the same thing is what I find boring......!! Tell me how many threads I have started about this issue?? To the OPs credit he's tried on this moaning forum to be positive but guess what the first reply he gets ends with a moan about the new rivals system.
Because "discussion" is not the same as "crying."
Plus people can agree with you about self-relegators and still think that the new Rivals system isn't great. Can you not see that?
You're just taking threads off the tracks time and time again by rushing in to remind people that the playerbase "couldn't be trusted" with relegation. Over and over and over again. We get it. FFS WE AGREE WITH YOU. EVERYONE DOES.
Also, you talk about "multiple threads of people crying."
How the hell was this one of those? It was a guy saying he likes the game. And you STILL managed to turn it around to your broken record.
If you look closely the first reply to the OP was a moan( crying) about the new rivals system. Also if you read the thread I've already praised the OP.
Nice to know that you agree and understand but I'm bracing myself for a lot more self relegators starting multiple boring threads about the same issue over and over( new rivals system). I'm only trying to get the message through as to why EA had to take relegation out of the game. Not everyone on the forum seems to have caught on as quick as you have son.
They turned it into an arcade game again.
Has it really changed that much since patch?
Hardly changed at all, just the usual moaners
Who would of thought scoring 30 Yarders be more effective than tap ins , 1 v 1 and shots inside the box ,
Good job EA 👍
I like next gen too and looks way more realistic than last gen.
2 real problems here...
1. 9 of 10 of opponents are park the bus autodefenders.
2. New broken horrendous format modes.
Fix this and game is ok.
This. Its like playing against Timmy plus 9 legendary AI players
Cant see how anyone at least somewhat competent would enjoy this
