New thread for this years upcoming game, post all relevant Ultimate Team related content in here.

First up new Icons, EA has today released images of brand new Icon players that will be in the game for Fifa 19 (ratings apparently not final) so here they are:

I'm all over that Gerrard icon card - I'll take any of the three and be happy :D

Division Rivals looks interesting. Something to do during the week at least. It's a shame there's been no apparent changes to the weekend league though. I still think 40 games is too much.

Dynamic tactics are very welcome - although it's something that should've been implemented years ago. Good to see 'house rules' under kick-off mode too. Me and my mates used to love lounge mode - fun way to mix things up.

Seems like EA are currently sending out Beta codes for Fifa 19 to "random" people, I've never received one in all my years playing Fifa so I'm pretty sure this year will be no different however go check yourself and you might be lucky :)

As for Fifa 19, i dont think I've been this less hyped for a Fifa release since i started playing it. Its just the same recycled crap year in year out yet some how the gameplay feels worse. I really hope they prove me wrong but this year all they are getting out of me is the cost fo the game.

Similar to me, year after year of the same frustrations it's drained the joy out of the franchise for me.

If it wasn't a football game there's no way I'd of stuck at it this long, it's only the football relevancy and lack of other options that have kept me coming back.

If the Beta dates are now-ish then it wouldn't matter if I got a code or not, I'm off to Hong Kong and won't be back until September anyways so wouldn't be able to play at all.

Played 5 games on the beta,switched it off.
I’m sorry , but Fifa has lost the plot,felt like 18,gameplay was awful.
If I buy I think I’ll just play pro clubs,though I’ve heard that hasn’t changed either.

News I expected, but didn't wanna hear! I always have a look to see what folks on here are saying about it, I know you guys play a hell of a lot.

Unfortunately for me personally, 18 was one of the worst Fifa's we've ever had. I was hoping this year's might be a step back in the right direction at least. But seems not :(

And PES looks all but dead and buried now too. We haven't even got a thread yet for it this year!

Might give it a miss for the first time ever, or pick it up at least when it drops in price. Thankfully Red Dead should keep me pretty busy this year over the winter months.

I’ll get the ea access and go from there,hopefully somethings will be changed for the better,but won’t buy until that game changing 1st patch has been released.
Fifa 18 when first out was amazing,,defending manually ,if u messed up the opposition scored,,then the patch hit and it was ai defending all over again.
I haven’t even noticed the timed finish in the beta,just been finishing as I usually would.

Tried the seasons and meh. Goals galore , 5-3 and 8-5.
I know it’s a beta but I’m out. Sad but it’s nowhere near a football sim nowadays.
First time in ages I’m not bothering

That was the main problem for me on the last one. People just shot with anyone from anywhere, and 9 times out of 10 it went in. For me as well. It didn't feel like there was any kind of skill involved in 18 at all.

And don't get me started on the number of corners in a game. Keeper just palming it out nearly every time they got a touch :facepalm:

Alas, that was 18 anyway. To 19. I'll play the demo of course, but feeling very pessimistic already :(

Until they get rid of this frostbite engine,the game is going to be a pile of poo.
 
I want 2v2 lobbies brought back to seasons. Just want to play with 3 other friends against each other. Can't help but think it would be such an easy feature to implement. Don't know why they removed it years ago :(

Ive played another 10 games,and I hate it!
Deleted now,it’s just hopeless as a game of football.
The midfield is like a game of pinball,rebounds off players,and the damn tackle to still not win the ball is win there,every time it still goes back to the player with ball,why can’t they fix this! Why the hell bother playing manual defending,if the ball just goes straight back.
It’s going to be another year of frustration for lots of people,not for me,I’m out.
Will still check in here as its a great bunch,but I’m totally frustrated with the game and the bs that is still going on.

That in a nutshell also describes the monstrosity that was Fifa 18. I couldn't hack it anymore. I actually deleted 18 off my hard drive because I needed the space, and thought I really don't want to play this anymore.

I'm so disappointed you guys are not liking on 19. Not having a decent footy fix for the winter months is gonna be tough. Once the Premier League season gets into full swing, I'm normally wanting a game online!!

I guess they rolled out another batch of beta codes as I actually did get one this time round, first time I've ever got one and the one time I'm thousands of miles away from home and have no chance to play it

Why don't you throw it on here? Not for me, I can wait for the demo. But for one of the regular guys who hasn't got one.

Bloody EA.....

Although I suppose people would be selling them on eBay given the chance!!
Yea 100% with the selling of Betas, plus if they lock it to accounts then those people are unlikely of leaking content because it has the Gamer tag and console info on the screen so you'd get the account banned pretty quick.

I haven't even bought the game yet because of how disillusioned I became with Fifa 18, I probably should have bought it ages ago from Argentina by the looks of things, now it doesn't seem like you can use the VPN method to buy from elsewhere which is what I've always done in the past so its Gift Cards only for the time being..

I've just started the download for the EA Access Trial, hopefully the web app will be out soon as I prefer to do all the starter stuff on that to be honest, either way I'll probably wait until after 6pm to open the packs just in case I actually pack a TOTW.

I've bought,,but going to play pro clubs more than ultimate team,,unless the game has seriously improved since the beta..
Didn't bother with demo.
 
I paid £22.33 for the Ultimate Edition this year :D unreal price. Even more so as I game share so just £11.17 each!

Glad EA Access is out early. Expected it would be - like years gone by. Just loaded up and set up my UT and unlocked everything in the catalogue. Will open my packs after 6pm with a tiny glimmer of hope at packing an IF :rotfl:

Three kits, four all player packs and two gold packs were my rewards for returning. Anyone get better than that? Should hope not, seeing as I’m a FUT Founder!
 
22 quid! Bargain, u get from another store?
Yeah - Argentina.

It was around £35 at the time of ordering but I think the country is in a bit of a financial crisis so the Peso is in free fall. It's just a shame, for us, that Microsoft have closed the VPN loophole :(

It does mean I'm aiming to go without FIFA Points this year though.
