    This game is awesome. First time I can remember where I played a demo and felt it was vastly superior to the previous game.

    Still not sure I’m buying this season. Hard to take a game serious that has VVD rated a 85 and Naby Keita a 83.

    Did you feel Naby Keïta’s 83 rating was absurd before January?

    Game is solid until you get into the final third and it becomes a giant game of hope pinball.

    Also enjoying the 343 or 3421 depending on the situation. Play high press for the first 15-20 minutes and then dropping off and pressing when the moment calls for it. All anyone online wants to do is play on the counter and try to heat seeking missile defend.

    Anyone been playing with ea access so far? I didn’t realize it had been released yet. Downloading now so I will probably play some while watching football this afternoon

    Yep. I have played a good chunk of my trial already. Some pro clubs and FUT.

    Last year I started on Pro and played that for a while before moving up to Legendary (fuck World Class, Legendary is typically easier). Crushing teams on Pro but I can’t score on Legendary so might have to take some lumps figuring it out or try WC

    Legendary seems a little harder this year, or my team isn’t as good yet.

    Dug into career mode some. Haven’t gotten to European games yet to feel the presentation but I can’t really tell anything else that is different. I do like the gameplay better than last year though. I don’t play as much as I’d like so it much just be my lack of skill but the goals I am scoring seem more realistic this year

    Scoring is definitely harder on higher difficulty. I haven’t tried WC yet but in a handful of matches: Legendary has been mostly 2-1 or lower except one 3-3 match and Pro I win by 5+ and outshoot them like 20-5.

    I am having a blast with this year's game. Already got my main squad set so now it is just collecting coins to get any potential in forms that might appear. I am running an Argentine Super League squad for the most part. I am allowing myself to use players that left the league in the last year (Lautaro Martinez and Nico Tagliafico). I got super lucky with my CL pack and got Tagliafico (LB at Ajax).

    Tagliafico was one of my 3 favorite players in FIFA 18. He's a beast.

    But agreed, Career Mode is already much better this year, at least in terms of teams playing differently. The press of Man City feels much different than Sevilla.

    That is, until I got hit with this duplicate player glitch and my game froze. Hopefully it gets patched soon. No one needs that much Guendouzi

    Depends if you like career mode or not. If you don’t then probably not. I’ve actually saved a lot of money on sports games by getting ea access. 1-2 games a year I am excited about and want to buy and i don’t even make it through the 10 hours they give you for free. Less than half the price of the game. That’s been my move when I’m unsure.

    I do have EA Access. I'll test out the career mode for my 10hr trial, which is definitely where I would want to spend time.

    Hummels too high, Varane, VvD, Gimenez, and Laporte too low. Not a fan of that list, but it doesn't really matter.

    And how the hell is Pepe still that high?

    I am liking the change to divisions in FUT. It has actually got me to play it more than the previous combined. It is actually nice to get better rewards for just playing the game over the week. Got 27k in coins on top of the rewards from each match. The game is much more fun if you avoid the meta of building super pacy PL or big 5 league squads that the streamers and youtubers use. The ability to change your formation and tactic (more variety this year) on the fly is nice. Can go from an attacking high press 343 to a defensive counter 523 without having to pause. Give it time to adjust the changes and enjoy playing the game.

    Also for anyone playing; make sure you do the daily objectives. Almost all of them are a guaranteed profit.

    Yeah the daily and weekly challenges were added last year I think and were nice to get extra stuff.

    Curious to see how the game changes on the first patch because it always does.

    SBs, Rivals and WL are nice ways to get coins/packs. I like them cutting WL down also. I only played the full 40 once so having lower thresholds for each rank is nice

    But really though, a lot of my FIFA comes in the mornings on weekends and early evening between 5:30 and 7. You guys aren’t playing clubs in those windows.

    If anyone’s to blame its everyone else but me

    Yeah but the rewards were usually complete trash unless they changed them after I stopped playing. This year seems to be a lot more chemistry style cards or small packs along with the 100-250 coins.

    WL is still going to be aids fest.

    They varied throughout the year. Hopefully bronze contact packs are not in the reward system this year.

    So far I’ve pretty much only been been getting a contract or fitness card so I haven’t seen an improvement in the rewards so far but still nice. I also haven’t been able to play much either so maybe just a volume thing

    I would say 80% of mine have been chemistry cards. I have been flipping the shadow and hunter cards since I have no need for them.
