    FIFA 19

    Haha! I reckon SaintM will get it. Whenever I pop onto PSN he's always there playing FIFA 18. If he can't get enough of that cancerous ruin, he'll be all over this un-irradiated haven. I think we should crack on without him though, league-wise. The impression I got from him is that he's done being the ringmaster but might take part if the leagues restarted.

    I just pre-ordered this on disc via eBay ShopTo for £40. There's a 10% off voucher live on all purchases on eBay just for today fyi.

    I see what you're saying, and I'm hardly FIFA's biggest fan, but your two videos just show the bad side of FIFA versus the good side of PES. Both have bad moments and neither are perfect. I want to like PES and I do in many respects but the flaws are there and are imo bigger than FIFA. At least the 18 versions which I played both of. The one thing I don't get about PES is how fucking shite the menus are - and have been for literally EVER. Surely that wouldn't be too hard a fix? FIFA has had a problem with bullet headers for a few versions though, agreed, and that video shows it at it's unbelievable worst. I never bother with the FIFA demo nowadays - the final release version is always substantially different so I don't bother downloading now.

    BAP will need 4 teams for deffo, gotta be an even number. I think the sweet spot for numbers in a team is 6/7 ish per team, to ensure that each team has enough to fulfil their fixtures each week. In a perfect world then Steely's list would have about 30 in, which would work out at about 7 players per team which would be about right. From week to week not everyone would turn up so players would have a chance to play in different positions if they wanted to.

    No way we're gonna get 60. I think part of the problem in the past was the recruitment itself, which whilst it worked well, it attracted a load more casual peeps who never posted on the forum and then dropped out early on. Much better to get a small group of people who post and are reliable, even if the numbers are small. I think anyone looking to join the league has to be active on here to promote the bants, etc. With the numbers we've got atm maybe we should do a proper 1v1 league with a couple of divisions, 10-12 teams per division? As good as it would be for Saint to come back, he's obviously not keen or too fussed, nor can I blame him, but others above have offered their services - Steel ran an awesome FTL league, and Smith's offer to run it sounds good to me. It just needs a bit of organisation and someone who will stay the course, prob best with an assistant to keep results and league tables up to date (I'd be happy to help with the admin side). I'd suggest something like once numbers are confirmed, whoever we all decide to be the best two players who have signed up (gooner? Baz? Steely? I'm out of touch these days ) play everyone once who has signed up and then they rank them by top 12 in Div 1, bottom 12 in Div 2, etc. Then we work out League rules. E.G. Which teams we should use (5*, 4.5*, specific divisions). We could alternate each season and obviously give the best players worse teams to help balance it all. We could use public votes for all of this. Run the 1v1 league for a season (so about 2-3 months assuming 2 games a week), hopefully with these keen folks numbers will hold. Or if we have numbers for a BAP league currently crack on with that to start? Or have different people involved in different leagues (e.g. someone leads with 1v1 league, someone does BAP).

    This all seems mental to me, do Sony even know this happens?

    Anyone sourced a cheap disc version location? I miss the old days of super cheap TheHut release day deal that came with 5 packs of free pants

    FIFA Switch

    Thanks Jay. I might buy FIFA on Switch right now even though I don't own a Switch. I hope I don't regret it!
  11. Ooh yes great shout. I really want Burgle Bros, heard only positive things from about 5 or 6 people. Only it's price has put me off (£40 ish). Let us know how you found Paperback! I bought Mr Jack Pocket last week for us to play but we spent all weekend painting so haven't had a chance to play it yet. She seems super keen on the theme though, I also like that it's quite portable to take on our travels easily enough. Kingdomino is still the winner of this thread so far, she loves it (as long as she goes the pink castle ). I think I've won one game against her so far too, it's a good job my ego is bruised enough as it is, haha.

    Fook it, I'll get it on disc too for rllmuk FC lulz.
  13. Aye I've sold a few games with bubble wrap, brown wrapping paper and myhermes. Never had a problem, even had a compliment from someone how well wrapped it was. I bought my bubble wrap and brown paper from Wilko, seems super cheap and good quality from there. I'll probably list a few games for sale too in the upcoming days/weeks, do we have a thread in this sub-forum or do folks just use the Trading folder?

    I'll try the demo but the problem is that the demo is often way off the final released version of the game as usually the community screams and wails about not enough goals or excitement or xyz, and EA patch it accordingly. I like the idea of tight games but like smith and charlie I've never enjoyed the new defending - and it was essentially bad in FIFA 18. That's why I sold it half way through the year because it's such a fundamental part of the game. I agree with Timmo that you can get better at it if you put the time and effort in and learn it's nuances, but tbh, it's virtual football, it shouldn't need you to play 500 online games and be an adept virtual finger gymnast just to defend properly. Same goes for all the skill moves. Like most here I feel pretty disillusioned with the focus the series is taking as a whole. My main draw would have been Pro Clubs luls, but if it's unchanged what is the point in spending that £50? I wonder if other peeps will vote with their wallets in a similar way.

    Battlefield V - November 20th

    Been a long time since I played BF1 (at least a year) but I'll be going in for the Open Beta on BF5 to give it a try. Need a good MP game and if people are committed this then I'll be fully in. Nothing better than squadding up with Kriess / Stig / Fishy / kerraig, finishing top of the leaderboards each game and then pretending like you personally actually did enough to merit that squad top spot
