    We're about a month out from FIFA 18 so I figured I'd make the thread.



    Gonna make a list in the OP of active users/gamertags, so please put yours down if you're interested. The majority of us are on XBone, but I can start a separate list for PS4 people.

    We've got a few established groups of players on Xbox One for Pro Clubs. It'd be nice if we could arrange more friendlies between groups, bring new players into the fold, or perhaps roll with a 10 or 11 person club from time to time. If we get a good list going, it shouldn't be too hard to find unincorporated people and create a club.

    Most groups have different play styles. *Shameless highlight clips to follow*

    Real Mainboard likes to tiki-taka whenever possible. RoyalShocker tne


    The nomadic tribe of Dos A Cero / Bob Loblaw like to play direct and down the wings. nexus watson Druce


    I honestly don't know how team Danglin' likes to play, but I imagine it involves heavy drinking and copious profanity. VictorJ24 Bruns

    Former cool person UA412 prefers not to play with us heathens, but his team always seems to meet up with other TMB clubs in matchmaking. They are pretty good in possession and attack.

    I'm sure I've missed a group or two, so apologies. I know there used to be some "Fromage" club, I think that was Wu and some others?

    Feel free to post FUT stuff in here, SugarShaun and ChileanNole are our resident experts. I'm sure we'll get a 1v1 tourney going at some point, but there might be a separate thread for that when the time comes.

    I'll buy it and attempt to play some clubs. Will definitely play FUT fanatically at first and eventually promote Leeds back to where they belong.

    Also if the FIFA Street rumor is true :jizz::jizz::jizz:

    Nope but my little one loves FIFA so I could try to use that as a bargaining chip for more FIFA time, also just bought a new house so got plenty of points stored for future use and FIFA clubs would be a good use of them.

    Missed this. Can we talk about how stupid it is that you can't play the game until Friday instead of the normal Tuesday release unless you buy the Icon version?

    It's fucking stupid.

    Also, who's buying the icon version so I know if we have numbers and I should buy it because fuck waiting until that Friday

    Just read that Dortmund's stadium "Signal Iduna Park" will not be in FIFA 18 because they signed some deal with Konami and PES. This also goes for Camp Nou, Estadio Mestalla (Valencia), Vicente Calderon (Atletico), and most likely Lyon's stadium "Parc OL".

    Lame.

    There goes my BVB career play through. Athletico doesn't matter since the new stadium is in 18.

    LFC would be in this boat if not for the Premier League's deal. Course with Peter Moore at LFC I doubt PES keeps their deal after it runs out.

    Also I bought the icon version on Xbox. Ready for that 4K update on the X.

    I don't anticipate 10 hours lasting me 8 days.

    Assuming EA Access still starts the Thursday beforehand and not on Sunday since it's typically 5 days early.

    It's a small price to pay for there to be some kind of alternative soccer video game so EA can't go to their ways of intentionally making the game worse and slowly improving it back to the old standard in subsequent editions.

    First ratings came out. Top 100 and they released 100-81. People already bitching. Mane, asensio and Alli amongst those ranked in that 84-85 range that those guys are. Sounds like they will announce 20 a day for the next 5 days and then start doing the one offs like fastest, strongest etc. Like they did last year.

    My bad, they released that on top of the 100-81

    84 - Bernardo, Khedira, Mané, Alves, Asensio, Falcao, Icardi, Dele
    85 - Leno, Marchisio, Ruffier, Gundogan, Subasic, Varane, Glik, Barzagli, Kompany, Mkhitaryan, Carrasco, Ter Stegen

    I was amused because he was in a video they released on twitter where guys read some comments made about them and they asked the players what their rating should be. He said 80.

    Griezmann asked if he could go higher than 99

    I was gonna say I know i read that before I had coffee this morning but I remember reading 100-81. I thought I was losing my mind for a second.

    tottenham fans have been sounding off on mkhitaryan being ranked above dele.

    Mane was 79 last year up to 82 on winter upgrade so 84 isn't surprising. Didn't expect him to be higher than 85

    i agree. FIFA is always too rigid with previous season(s) bias and refusing to upgrade players too quick. Even a guy like asencio who has been doing incredible shit at Real Madrid and will arguably displace bale seems underrated as an 84.

    It's easy to be a bit of homer about FIFA ratings but if Asensio is an 84 than most of those other guys with him should be about 75.

    Kompany, Gundogan & Carrasco higher is rich

    I didn't either but just because they had him ranked low last year doesn't mean it's right. who do you think is better mkhytajkdvdrian or the God they call Mané?

    Not Coutinho related but should be some good OTW cards this season.
