    Now here’s an example where the game automatically reducing the players potential would be appropriate

    I love the gameplay but so many bugs!!! I have to restart my ps right now to add consumables to my players on FUT after each match.

    I've barely played because I don't feel like investing anytime to career mode until they patch it. I've just been dicking around with FUT and the Volta stuff here and there.

    meh. when you start your guy has a shitty rating and now skills so it kind of takes the fun out of it. part of it could be me too as I'm trying to get the difference in play style down

    Do you always have to play with your person, or can you use actual teams / players just to play for fun?

    I was excited for it to come out and I haven’t even played through the 10 hours for ea access yet so i haven’t even bought the game yet.

    I can’t tell you how angry I get when I’m playing in division 5(because I suck) and go up against teams that I won’t be able to have at the end of the season.

    Their system seems to be broken because last year everyone I know got put into D5 to start based on their 5 qualification games

    I couldn’t get out of D5 then they revamped the divisions like halfway through the game and I got out into D4 then I got promoted up twice to D2 and would flirt with promotion to D1 but could never get there

    no.

    there was a patch when I started it up last night so I'm scrolling through looking at all the things they corrected, I get to career mode and it just says something like - detailed online. so I go online thinking it's going to be some laundry list of corrections that was too long so publish with the patch and instead is just says "Corrected issue with fixture dates in Calcio B".

    that's it. that's the only thing they corrected.

    Sounds to me like it will he weeks before career mode is fixed. I’ll keep looking for updates though. No buying the game or starting a career until it’s fixed. If football manager 2020 comes out first I’ll probably just buy that and skip FIFA this year for the first time in at least 15 years.

    In their defense that patch had been finished for a while and apparently it was too late to correct any of the other issues. To your other point, what the fuck are you doing when it "will take weeks" to get your base game to a even a playable state? Fucking clownshoes.

    The bug that bothers me most is in player career mode where you start out with 4 star skill moves but after you complete 2 achievements where you get a star added you go down to zero fucking stars. The player isn’t even capable of performing a fake shot without falling over.

    And the team sheet is screwed up for every match so the fullbacks play center back and vice versa.

    it’s totally broken in the initial release so maybe wait until they patch it.

    I do like the gameplay though.

    I haven't played FIFA since 17 because I realized I was addicted to FUT and not even enjoying it anymore, just grinding and grinding. Ultimate Team scratches a really weird psychological itch and I felt like I was getting manipulated.

    Seeing Pulisic post his TOTW card has my neurons firing again.

    It is a huge deal. He’s at worst the 2nd best FIFA player in the world. He was the first to win back to back trophies and then won a 3rd in a row.

    He won the Global Series event in Atlanta, took a red eye back to Liverpool, slept 30 minutes and won the Liverpool tournament to represent Liverpool in the ePL

    They are having the first big event of the year this weekend and he just won the XB1 portion and will be in the cross console final (play 1 game on each console and whoever scores the most over both games wins)

    Can we talk about how division rivals rewards on ultimate team are the biggest joke there is? Almost pointless to play

    I hate Rivals. It’s terrible. Though the rewards are tiered based on your division. In D1 you can get ultimate packs (30 rare gold players) from it (1 tradeable or 2 untradeable)

    It is nice though that when you play WL you accumulate rivals points so you can get extra rewards without having to play that terrible mode.

    This may be a dumb question but what are you supposed to do with all the players you accumulate in FUT that are unsellable? Just let them stay on your club?

    SugarShaun Got a FUT question... now that it’s TOTS can I do weekend league and get silver and still get high cards? I know usually if you get silver it’s 84 max... I just don’t have time to play 30 games but I’ve been playing a little more under quarantine

    I think the 84 cap rises to 88 during TOTS. If you can get to Silver 1 (11 wins) it’s uncapped.

    If you happen to find yourself a weekend that you can play more, 14 wins gives you 2 uncapped picks (choice of 3 players), and 17 bumps the choice to 1 of 4 players and guarantees 1 option in each pick of the better league that’s out (so like tomorrow will give people picks from Turkish SuperLig and Spanish LaLiga)

    Ok cool I got silver 2 this week and probably only played like 14 games. My team is just so weak compared to everyone else. But I think I can get to silver 1 pretty easily. The hard thing will be getting enough points throughout the week to qualify.

    Question, if I've never really played Fifa before (meaning I have no frame of reference for how bad the newer versions may be) and I'm really only interested in playing career mode, should I go with '19 or '20? One thing to keep in mind, I'll be playing with Atlanta United and at least starting out in MLS, so if '20 is more robust when it comes to featuring that league it's something I'd prefer.

    joey jo-jo jr shabadoo you know for me, the action is the juice

    neither is a good game, but with dynamic potential 20 was the better choice

    just make sure to do all the post game press conferences and try not to sim all that much so your team morale stays high

    and dont play on ultimate difficulty since theres no nuance and it just upgrades the ai to 99 rated everything

    and dont drop points more than 3-4 times or youll never win the league
