  1. The sales drop is purely physical, digital sales are up. That's a trend across the board with loads of titles.

    I'm on and off these days but if I'm about I'll drop in. I find it good overall, I think there is more skill required in areas that were too tolerant of poor positioning before. I think winning the ball from goal kicks, getting in place before free kicks, and keeping within 15-yard passing ranges is really satisfying. It doesn't seem yet, there's a sure fire way to dominate in those areas though I don't feel the same way about keeper reactions and corners. They definitely need work.

    I think I'll jump in for sub £20. I'm in no rush to get it and it seems light on content, I can manage with EG in the meantime.

    I think first touches are more important than ever. A stray pass leads to clumsy first touches which leads to instant pressure on the ball. It wasn't so bad on the previous games but the tolerance isn't as soft on this one. Not holding sprint all of the time, facing the right direction and judging the power is even more important now.

    How is the game overall? Very tempted to pick it up myself.

    FIFA 19

    Out the blocks, I think this is as good as any FIFA (cue the "you can't judge it after a week" mob). I barely play competitive stuff anymore but even narrow defeats and hard fought draws against AI are pretty decent compared to the previous possession drivel. It's a solid package all round but I've yet to fully invest in all the new intricacies like I would have in the past; I barely played the demo but even though I've almost had it a week, I've only played a dozen games on Clubs.

    Yeah this is definitely a bug. My trainer stuff re-appeared last night even though nothing had changed, it happened to a couple of us. Incidentally, I recommend everyone keeps their trainer "ON" but disable the prompts so basically it just shows the arrow and timing bar. The arrow is particularly useful for the new goal kicks as it's the only way to orient yourself given the static camera change.

    I'm around from now pretty much all night if anyone fancies partying up.

    I remember when we just used dummy accounts and that worked fine, it's always a pain with these spin off teams.

    Anyone for FIFA 19 clubs?
  15. Got my dispatch email on Saturday so I'm expecting at least one of my two copies to be at home within an hour. I'll likely not be home until 7 though
  16. Normally my aim is the win division 1, of which it takes me a while because I don't play the game as much anymore, and I also make a spreadsheet of all the best players to calculate the next set of targets for my nation. I don't bother with the SBC Challenges, IF and other rare stuff, you can be perfectly competitive with a good gold team.

    That's been around for donkeys years; you can listen on DAB or FM, just not through online. You only get pre-match build up and post match analysis otherwise.
  18. This isn't a rumour, it's starting to get enforced by international gambling laws... https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-09-18-heres-how-pack-odds-disclosures-in-fifa-19-works Apparently the Web App goes live at 6pm tonight (BST).

    FIFA 19

    I normally get back at least £20 for my copy a couple of months before the new one, I keep myself fresh and appreciate the sequel more. It will work out £30 for my Ultimate Edition of '19, so it will likely only have cost me £10 by the time I ditch it in June. Digital is way overpriced and doesn't give flexibility.
  20. I normally go for Brazil for flair, but I think I might look at a France/Italy hybrid. I won't be competing in weekend leagues though, probably just squad battles or casuals.

    I think I normally use default for everything except crossing - that is on semi. Hospitality settings don't seem to save for me though so my preferences change from year to year.

    I think a couple of donkeys old issues have finally been fixed (yay): - Map icon conflicts - Unresponsive menus Haven't checked if they reverted the 3D radar after the shambles of a decision to adjust it last year or why language select isn't saved or why referee uniforms still clash with kits etc. I noticed the core control scheme has had a major change, again, it's happened for about 4 games in a row now. I've had to change to a custom setup rather than "classic" for a while now; I suspect most of you will swap the shooting back to O/B rather than the right bumper. RE: The PES debate, there is no debate.

    I'll ask one of the lads at work if he fancies it; loves FIFA but doesn't really play it with anyone else except me.

    Yeah I always thought it was time based, in the FIFA games it is.

    The cost isn't the downside, I'm sure everyone is happy to chip in. I'd just forget about the defense point too, we don't need people who are not willing to play anywhere. The real downside is all of the associated factors with running a website, sorting stats, chasing people etc. Hats off the @Steely for offering to do the sheet, I offered previously but there wasn't really any interest and my spare time has gone. I can collaborate and make suggestions but I won't be able to front load things, though I can make a lot of my old stuff available. We should look to make it low maintenance one-stop-shop which, ideally, is also self balancing, as per my approach for golf.
