Definitely feels slower
Well I'm a PES boy now. Not looked back since I started 19. All the whistles and bells aren't as good as Fifa I'll admit; PES's menus and presentation are woeful. But on the pitch where it matters, it's bucket loads better.See EA have yet again upset the community. There was no free stuff over Christmas on Fifa 19, yet just now, they have given 4 free icons on Fifa 18 lol.
Got to love EA, no one plays Fifa 18, all the promotional stuff is for Fifa 19, yet lets give some awesome stuff away on a old game
You seen the latest promo they have done? All about making them money as per usual.Well I'm a PES boy now. Not looked back since I started 19.

I know these type of posts get frowned upon in the FIFA section but I hadn't looked beyond Fifa for the last 6 or 7 years. I'm glad though I now have. FIFA's gameplay is utter garbage this year, as it was last year too. I can only hope others see the light!
EA have long stopped caring about the FIFA franchise; except for how much money they can make off the idiots hammering UT. It's a shame, but not surprising for those that know what EA are like. They've gotten totally lazy with FIFA now, but know they'll sell millions of copies every year with minimal effort.
No they never will mate. Massive cash cow, for the sheer minimal effort.You seen the latest promo they have done? All about making them money as per usual.
Added 21 new cards of young players that may be the next future stars. So you the likes of Foden of City now having a 88 rated card and Sanco a 90 rated card.
Just a bloody joke, the game is flooded with so many high rated over priced cards now and this is just sums it all up.
They even have a 18 year old from Real Madrid who has only played 9 games, yet he gets a 92 rated card.
They won't do it but for me Fifa needs a big reboot and starting fresh again. Strip back UT, make career mode much better, Fifa Clubs could and should be awesome to. Yet none of this will happen.
No need to apologise, the Fifa forum is dead, sums up the game. For me, more so this year, there is no enjoyment at all.No they never will mate. Massive cash cow, for the sheer minimal effort.
I've been playing MyClub on PES, and whilst far from perfect, its head and shoulders more fun than UT. And you don't need to spend any real money or serious time to get a good team. And because the gameplay is much better anyway, the online matches are better contests.
And I must comment on the lack of lag on PES too. I've been very pleasantly surprised.
I apologise again anyway for talking PES in the Fifa thread, but I think there's a lot of guys in both the PS and Xbox sections who are finally really missing out this year. I've been a longtime Fifa guy - as most here have - but not anymore. I'm glad I had a good look at PES, it's great to finally play a decent football game.
Christ, didn't realise it was like that. Sounds dreadful. I know there's a few guys in the Xbox section hammering it, and looks like they have been spending real money on it too. Each to their own, but given how it plays that'd be suicide to me!No need to apologise, the Fifa forum is dead, sums up the game. For me, more so this year, there is no enjoyment at all.
On FUT you have two main modes, Division Rivals and of course Weeknd League. In the Weekend League you still have 30 games to play in few days, now I work full time and have 2 kids, so trying to play 30, 20 minutes games of Fifa in 3 ( more like 2) days is near impossible.
Yet here is the problem, if you don't get to Silver 1, which is a minimum of 11 wins, you won't qualify for the weekend league for the following week.
So you then have to play lots of games in the Division Rivals to gain the FUT points to gain access to the weekend league.
Just no fun at all. You feel like you are pressured to keep playing these games as if you don't, you don't get the big rewards ect. The game is not for casual players any more.
Will give PES a go as can download the lite version for free. Can't even sell my copy of Fifa, been on the classifieds for weeks!
Crazy isn't it? That new future stars promo is the end of UT for me and it has not gone down well at all with a lot of players. Like you say, just had team of the year, which loads of people spent coins and real money on.I haven't played FIFA since about the end of October (apart from a few games here and there with my Brother). I fancied a game online the other night to see if I could get back into it and the gameplay was an absolute joke, it was like watching a pinball machine with the ball bouncing and ricocheting here, there and everywhere.
Then the next day I see them with their latest promotion that Stu was referring to with the future stars. Players like Phil Foden and Guendouzi getting 87/88 rated cards with stats similar to Icons and are going for ~500,000 coins. This is just a week or two after the Team of the Year cards were released as well I think?
I used to love Ultimate Team, but it's just getting ridiculous now with the amount of special cards that are creeping their way into the game. At the start of the season you had the Champions' League cards as well that were only +1 better than their normal versions and going for silly amounts of coins too.
Sadly, I can't see anything changing anytime soon and it'll only get worse as long as they're making a killing from FIFA points.
They'll be screwed if the courts ban the buying of packs. I'd like to see it happen though.Crazy isn't it?

Yet a week later, hey lets release 21 more players all high 80s and 90s and get them to spend even more. No way should these new players be rated higher than some icons, crazy.
The game as well is awful anyway. Ping pong non stop, to fast ect.
The only slight hope is that the courts ban the buying of card packs. Then they will have to change the way UT work. Otherwise, with them making literally billions a year from UT, it will never change
