I was feeling a little bit nostalgic so I watched an old Fifa video of mine I saved on youtube. This is from Fifa 13 and this squad is built during TOTS and was highly competitive. Now compare this to the squads we now have around TOTS. It kinda blew my mind how crazy high the power curve really is nowadays. I'd imagine we need 90's across the board around TOTS to make them somewhat relevant.
The good old days...
We shouldnt have some random 18 year old from spurs rated 96 and have better passing than xavi
But we will in a few months
Yeah, you are right to be fair. I prefer it that way though, play with players you like rather then players you need to be competitive.
I can imagine it would be fun to play one of these old games again to feel what the difference is in terms of gameplay. With these minor tweaks every year it feels like the difference isnt that big, but it probably is.
I'd wish they'd choose quality of quantity. But at the end of the day its a business they are trying to run and the 60/70 euro they get from selling copies simply isnt enough anymore. Packs sell and you sell packs by tempting people with new cards and players.
If only people knew the beauty of the old Fifa's No content & sbc's might sound boring, but atleast TOTW was relevant. TOTY was amazing aswell as TOTS. Basically the first game changing cards. Throw the odd MOTM cards in there and you have a perfectly balanced game.
Nowadays 90% of the cards are deemed as fodder lol.
There was next to no rage quits people actually played full matches for fun even if they were getting beat.
What is realism though? Some of these players keep tripping over their feet in real life but in Fifa they are rated with God like stats. Everything and everyone was usable to a certain extent, definitely different nowadays
al owarin is as good as mbapppe on this and he was worse than welliton and nilmar
Don't you think if the sbc's / objective cards equalled the quality of the high rated promo cards with follow on styled objectives would keep the players more relevant ?
Don't know about you but I've just about had my fill of 86 rated objectives
Overloading the market with all this content is what has devalued all the cards. What’s worse is ea has finally given in and just started throwing cards at us to try to keep us happy and it’s never enough.
Leite better rm tho
Yeah, if they'd pace themselves more then we would be far better off. Yeah, people will complain about the lack of stacked promo's and content, but over time people will get used to it. Just like people got used to this.
I dont like what UT has turned into to be honest. Its one of the few things that really bother me. No player looks appealing because we get so many jacked up players. Most of which have stats similar to what TOTS used to be. I dont even know how they are going to make TOTS interesting tbh. We already have so many players close to that threshold leave alone in 4/5 months time.
I wish we could back to the early Fifa days. Wasnt just about META players and people played with a larger variety of players. Hell, I was playing with an 80 rated Coutinho...and I still remember that Coutinho as he was so good.
Yeah your correct but you have to hand it to ea it's their game and if we don't play it their way they will ❤️❤️❤️❤️ us off, oh you want gg do you well here have it to its extreme, oh you like league sbc's let's tweak them to put you off still not enough ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it let's stop them, and the transfer market while they will never be able to stop you making coins they do everything in their power to make it as hard as possible.
Yep. But that goes for pretty much gaming in general. I think most games have some sort of seasonal pass or rewards system in play. Even simple games you play on your phone have this.
Honestly, those promo players are great. Like, we used to get barely any special players other then TOTW and at a later date TOTY/TOTS. But that means that those players feel special. When you do a promo every once in a (good) while then it would feel very differently. Now they release a promo every week so no player feels special. The majority are turned into sbc fodder, totw is irrelevant, tots is irrelevant and TOTY is just another promo as those stats will be matched soon.
Thats why everyone complains about the content. There has never been more content then now which means that no player feels special. On the curve is behind the curve as next week we'll get even better players.
Maybe I am just getting old, but all of these changes are not made with the customer in mind. Only the business in mind which is a shame.
