    Let me clarify - Semi-N00b - means you can complain and vent and not have the top players in the forum tell you how easy it is to do better. If they do they’ll be asked to not post here. Lol.

    That’s it. Haha.

    git gud :trollface:

    @Xtrem3 Poptarts truth. I need to. Lol

    Also I’ve just bought my 12k. Pumped to start but am not sure how I’ll use it. Might give drafts a go to see if I can win at least one game...lol.

    I was thinking do 3 drafts see how I do. If I get **** :D buy packs untill 6k and use the other 6k when OTW are in packs. Packing 1 off those can give a nice boost to the club

    I packed Douglas costa last year from a sbc and sold him for 100k

    You lads know I'm just messing about. After all, @Absting159 doesn't want TOP players telling you how easy it is to do better. Since I'm not a top player, I'm exempt from that rule :trollface:

    @Absting159

    Did you buy on ‘18 with the plan to bring them over to ‘19? I’ve always waited in the past, but I’m bored, so I may go ahead and load up on ‘18! :D

    @mjs4p Yeah, buy on 18 and transfer. It's been confirmed. First time you load the game on console you get the question to transfer all points over!

    One year there weren't points right away. . .although I believe last year FP were available right away so it really didnt matter.

    I’m gonna go with the no FP route this year. Gonna take a lot of trading and some good finishes in Rivals and WL. Coins are so much easier to make nowadays FP won’t be necessary for me (hopefully). I’m excited!
  • Tomorrow the fun begins!
  • @Absting159 thanks for re-opening the thread in 19..
    Just back in forum and fifa after about 2 months break..was in no interest of buying fifa 19 until last week, then came the demo, tried it and loved it. Then read about the Division rivals and now the big news of 30 GAMES per weekend league got me all back to FIFA.. Pre-ordered straight away..cant wait..haha!
  • I tried not to kid myself. I’m always frustrated by the end of the year but I knew the new game would get me excited. Im super pumped. @kiranthomas

    If I don't improve on my performances in the demo I'll snap peoples hands off for a G3 finish during the year at this point :joy:

    Not sure what's happened to me the past couple of months but I ain't half gone backwards game-play wise. Not playing half as much as I used to which is probably not helping but man, do I suck.

    Feel about Div 8 standard atm :joy:

    I have the same I stopped playing fifa 18 almost 4 months ago. Played a game on the fifa 19 demo against a friend who never plays fifa and he draw and beat me :D :D
    Feels like I have to get used to game again hopefully that will happen fast.

    Beginning off fifa 18 I was horrible too so there is hope!

    Yeah man, think I had a bit of a torrid time at start of 18 to so indeed... hope is there. Haha.

    Anyone else struggling with the demo?

    Am winning most games (legendary) but there's no flow to attacking whatsoever. Everything's scrappy. Feel like my timing's all off, players are off balance, am passing to the AI an awful lot, can't skill.

    I played PES for a bit recently and sucked hard at that, but swear I'm even worse at Fifa in my current state :smiley:

    Can hardly pass any of the training levels ffs :joy:

    Well.......

    The new changes are great.
    Weekend league 30 games.
    Rivals looks very good.
    And all prime icons in packs from the start.
    I cant believe EA hide this from us because off this I only got hyped since yesterday :D

    With the new news playing just weekend league and rivals should be enough to build a great team.
    With the new 30 games format i may never get elite though, because now you can lose only 7 and it was 11 before. But i definitely play weekend league a lot more i can find time to play 30 games in weekends.

    Also with the reward changes, they deleted monthlies and now have red informs every week. its fantastic news we don't have to grind all month and can just go play for inform when ever we want. Silver is already 1 red inform and gold 2 informs. i happily take silver or gold every week :)

    It looks like it could be a great year for us casuals.

    I was very "Meh WL" and "It's all about Rivals"

    Until I saw the player picks for reds. 14 wins and getting 2 picks isn't bad at all.

    I actually also love the fact that you dont need to play every weekend for monthlies! Ea marketing is interesting to say the least, keeping all this news to last day is well not smart if you ask me...
  • I got to a high of Div 3 last year. Prob could have pushed on but then WC mode came out and I didn't play much after that. This year I'll probably play WL for the first time and Rivals will give me a good indication of my (lack of) ability..
  • The fact of the matter is they have done a heck of a lot in regards to what we complained about last year. If people can’t see that there is no pleasing them.

    So i've just opened my 12K, managed to pull a few nice players:-

    IF Angel
    Mahrez
    Willian
    Stones
    Robertson
    Aurier
    Nacho Fernandez
    Luiz Gustavo X2
    Mandzukic
    Allan

    Got around 12K and 90 odd items on the transfer list (mostly kits that I will never use)

    Holding onto players to sell when the full game is released

    Played 1 Squad battles game so far, won it 7-1

    So i opened my starter packs and got Neres from my favorite club AJAX in my first pack :#

    I had a quick check and saw on squad battle that someone already has 28000 points so apparently people have the game much earlier then us.

    Hopefully i can play some games tomorrow night to get started.

    Is the wep app out for you guys? i cant get on yet.
