    Football Thread 2018/19

    Genuine question: Who gets to be the arbiter of what is 'entertaining' football? Leicester absolutely 'one-nil'ed their way to the title, and most of us found it to be the most entertaining League campaign in many a year. Do we disallow the great Italian Catenaccio sides? Where does the current Atletico Madrid side fit into this - after all, they are the only team challenging the monotony of the Barca/Madrid monopoly. What exactly constitutes having a go?
  2. Yeah, that's a mode that REALLY needs some sorting out. Sign a scout to get a spin on a ball and balls are different classes of players but we haven't used gold silver & bronze, we've used black, gold, silver and white... no I know 'getting black balled' is a famous saying that means 'bad' but black balls are the best in this and chemistry works by what the manager's playstye is but you can't see what playstyle the player has and... WHAT THE FUCK KONAMI.
  3. Like Mitch said, run the demo, see how it goes. A word of warning, it is bafflingly impenetrable for a newbie. If you're jumping on lemme know and if I'm around I'll jump of PS chat and guide you through it a bit.
  4. Min Specs: OS: Windows 7 (SP1), 8/8.1, 10 (1803/April 2018 Update) – 64-bit or 32-bit Processor: Intel Pentium 4, Intel Core or AMD Athlon – 2.2 GHz + Memory: 2 GB RAM Graphics: Intel GMA X4500, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT or AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 – 256MB VRAM DirectX: Version 9.0c Storage: 7 GB available space You only have a Pentium 3 or equal in your laptop? How old is it?
  5. RNG = Random Number Generator. Fifa uses it all over the place - eg they confirmed they use it in their new '50/50' tackles system. You go in for a tackle, the game looks at the stats and randomly generates a number to decide whether or not the tackle is successful. In theory that's great for a football game, not every tackle in real life is successful, even for someone like Vincent Kompany. However in game, it leads to situations that many of us had in the earlier lifespan of the game where you can tackle your opponent 6 times in one attack and still concede because the RNG has gone against you. So the game feels unfair. AHEM, it's 84 rated In-Form Belotti thank you very much. Although apparently he has chest stats of 3/100, just like your mum.
  6. Yeah possibly. But a 20+gb download will stop me from firing it up for a quick go, when I could be playing Battlefield V, or FM19, or Red Dead 2, or Cities Skylines, or any of the other 200+ games I own that I actually enjoy.
  7. Again, thank you fella. I do appreciate you wanting to help. However...
  8. And to be fair (and not to be read as a rant either, these are genuine postulations)... 1. But why did it run away from my player? He's as free as he's ever going to be in the box, no pressure on him. I'm not holding sprint, I'm not hammering the left stick up. Is there a control I should be pressing to ensure he doesn't do this? Because if there is, it's not listed anywhere - not in the game, not in any manual I've seen, not on any list of official controls. If that's a RNG thing - yeah that can fuck off. RNG deciding a game is bullshit game design - and also something that EA haven't said/confirmed is in the game. So now I'm just guessing as to why when I've done everything seemimgly correctly to be leading this game, I'm now losing. (Not to mention that players reach for balls that get away from them so why didn't he do it here?) That's a rubbish game. 2. Let's say there wasn't a header to win. So then the control scheme is bad. Because I've held the header button and pushed the direction I want the header to go - which is what you have to do off of goal kicks, and what everyone does from all goal kicks. But because the game has decided that there's no header to win, that means my CB is running forward, allowing his striker a run in on goal. Again, I'm doing everything that the game tells me is correct, but I'm being punished. See, I disagree. There isn't any other game I've played where I don't feel in control. If I lose at Battlefield, or at Rocket League, or at MarioKart, or at Tekken, I know why. Mainly because the other player was better. Or in the times they weren't, at least I've always known that I controlled my own character. I can't even come close to saying the same about Fifa. If I've played it solid for 11 weeks since launch, and I have no idea why I lose or how to improve, or even how to actually enjoy the thing, then that's bad game design.

    We should definitely play a draft or two over Christmas.

    Who's playing Football Manager this year? I know @MardiganX is, as well as @Tomox cos we can all watch his progress with Concord here:
  11. ...come join usssss... I know what you mean, but they've simplified the interface this time round and made the tactics screen a lot more conducive to building styles of play. I'd be more than happy to show you round it.
  12. Yeah. It's rubbish. Who wants to play Football Manager instead? It's awesome this year.
  13. Saved my usual 30 packs. Opened them during the first hour of the TotGS being in packs - crazy theory that the pack weight would be higher in the first hour. Packed my usual nothing. Well, I got one set of boards - the 84 rated Lyon Gk. But absolutely nothing else, in 30 packs, again. Played a rivals game. Striker refuses to shoot despite being open in front of goal, then from the resulting counter, my CB refuses to lock on to the header, then my GK comes out but refuses to claim the ball. I can't think of another game that just doesn't do what you tell it to do. I think I'm done.

    As a Millwall fan, I can't be hating all our rivals with unbridled passion - there's nowhere near enough hours in the day. List of clubs that Millwall have some kind of rivalry with: West Ham Charlton Palace Chelsea Leeds Porstmouth Spurs Gillingham Leyton orient Cardiff Man City QPR Do I hate Leyton Orient? Of course I don't. Do I want Gillingham to cease to exist? Of course I don't.
