Was a lot of good fun, some of my earliest gaming memories are: - Played a EC semi final as Portugal with only 7 players on the field after having 4 red cards from reckless slide tacklings - Winning the American championship as Argentina vs Mexico 2-1 - Substituting the Swedish goalkeeper for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and winning 4-0 anyways vs Spain

Why it is bullshit? If you know that, you can defend that. When you did everything right you score, in todays fifa you can do everything right and its random if the ball goes in.

What you have just described is a more realistic representation of how football is. Rather have that than know that I can just abuse the game by shooting near post.

2021-09-15 22:14
still playing it to this day, i dont really understand the complains it gets every single year. graphic wise it hit its peak around 2017, there is just nothing more you can do with the current gen gameplay wise, it changes every year, if its getting better or worse, that depends on how you like the game to be played, but they definitely shift the meta around each year. daily content in ultimate team, which is unique in the gaming industry, the content you get for the money you pay for the game is just amazing imo.

i play both, but mostly career. honestly the biggest difference i feel between the newer fifas and the older fifas is the first touch. in fifa 14 the first touch error is massive. in 21 you can run with the ball immediately after receiving it, while still keeping it close to the player.

the meta definitely benefits the players who focus on skill moves rather than smart built up play with passing, back in the days headers were op, now they are practically useless. pace is still everything and skill are more important than ever. my only wish is, they somehow find a way to make pace less important, but i doubt it's possible, otherwise they would have found a way already, people been complaining about it for years.
2021-09-15 22:22
1 reply
yeah honestly the reliance on pace bothers me so much. i got back into fut 21 earlier this week, and ofc because its the end of the game's lifespan, ea is putting all of the 99 ovr cards in packs, and everyone has 99 pace 99 ovr teams. i am losing to people who are dogshit at the game just because my team is slower than theirs.
2021-09-15 22:24
never read such drivel. Gameplay is terrible, AI does more work defending than anyone else, AI blocks, scripted gameplay, kick off boosts, poor keeper coding, the list goes on. As for saying its value for money? name me another competitive esport where to complete you have to spend THOUSENDS, yes THOUSENDS or you will be left behind! Yes the daily content is decent for SBCs, but to get the better players you are stuck behind a paywall. As for weekend league its utter trash, drop back, constant pressure rubbish. The fact that some of the best players in the world are just unusable, because they dont have over 90pace is also a complete joke. If EA spent as much money on fixing the flawed fundementals, isntead of adding the fucking journey every year, we might have a decent game. Cant wait for the game to be good for 2 weeks in Fifa 22 for it to be patched to be exactly the same as every other Fifa, because noobs complain its too hard to defend, like every year.

you are exactly the type of person i will never understand, you basically hate everything about the game, yet you buy it every single year. fifa is not an esports, it was never one, it will never be an actual decent esports because there is too much randomness involved. if you try to go pro in a game like this, it's your own fault. and if you're just going for top200 finishes, you can easily do that without spending a single penny on the game.

didnt buy this years purely based on how bad the previous year was. I wont be buying another fifa again, if i want to play a football game, ill just get PES as its free. The difference with Fifa compared to every other game, until this year you had NO alternative. For example if you dislike COD, you can play CS, if you dislike both you can play valorant.. see where i am going with this... You were forced to play Fifa if you want to play a football game. You are exactly the type of person EA Loves, will play the game, wont complain, so they dont need to fix anything, put any money into it.... As for saying its not an esport, try telling that to all the pros who make a living from the game, and again, have to put Thousends into doing so.

PES was always an alternative, and it was always mediocre, no matter how much people tried to hype it up, the skills sucked and they don't have licences. I am actually not the type of person EA loves because i don't spend any money on the game. Just because there are actually people who enjoy the game, doesn't mean you gotta be upsrt about it because you don't. Those so called pros are all sponsored or under contract with an org that will pay them the money they need to compete. It remains a terrible game for esports and it always because it's simply too random.

"It remains a terrible game for esports and it always because it's simply too random." You have pretty much confirmed the points i made originally... the game shouldnt be random, so should be fixed, until people stop accepting this it will never be changed.

what kind of braindead comparison even is that? how do you compare a competetive fps to a fucking casual sport simulator? that must be one of the worst arguments i have ever heard. and the second comparison is not even worth mentioning, i think you didn't think this through.

You brought randomness into a video game scenario, i merely added to it in the same way you did, however because it doesnt meet your narrative, its a braindead comparisson! I mean no other sports game seems to have the same issues that FIFA does.... IMAGINE THAT! carry on being an EA shill, and watch year on year the game slowly die, because idiots like you cant accept its TERRIBLE! Its numbers are decreasing year on year because people are fed up with how shit the game is, and eventually they will have to change it and fix things or EA's big cash cow wont be able to fund all the other failing projects they have and buying and are killing. Oh and not to mentioned that in the TOS you are only renting the things you purchase in UT and they can be taken at any point, but its great value for money LOL
2021-09-16 18:22
simple. never ever touch FUT and you will enjoy the game so much more
2021-09-16 19:21
"... the content you get for the money you pay for the game is amazing imo" I sincerely hope you were sarcastic on this one. People are paying literally thousands upon thousands of dollars every year for content in that game - content that becomes obsolete whenever new IFs or whatever comes out. It's so frustrating as a gamer, wanting to play "fair", how P2W is all that this game is about. I get that some will have the time to build strong finances in the game without paying, but most likely those are teens out of jobs with no children or familiy to take care of. It is impossible for the everyday family man to play this game because you simply meet overpowered teams in every single game. So I haven't touched it for two years now and I most likely wont ever again. Unfortunate, because it stuck with me for decades prior to the FUT experience.

I was absolutely not being sarcastic. "People are paying literally thousands upon thousands of dollars every year for content in that game" Me, my friends, and everyone i know pay the 40 bucks for the game on release day on PC and that's it, we get content for the entire game cycle every single day, for 40 fucking bucks. If you decide to spend money on the game, it's entirely your problem. " is impossible for the everyday family man to play this game because you simply meet overpowered teams in every single game." Yes, but that's how a lot of games are structured these days, people who invest more time in it, or and are good at the game, get rewarded more. If you want everything handed to you, you should defintiely not play FIFA.

Then we don't even have to debate the fact that this game is tailored towards teens with tremendous amounts of time (and money) on their hand, and attributes those with more time better chances of winning simply because of that; time and money. I can play CS at 2500 - 3000 elo just fine without having to put in more than a couple of hours every week and I come off rather well. I never had to invest more time or money into that game to be competitive in the better end of players (in my opinion, some will disagree but factually most players are not at that rating). With FIFA thats impossible, unless you are incredibly talented and can go against 90+ avg teams with your own team of scrap players. Not to mention the amount of time required to actually setup teams and adjust tactics etc., and you have to do this based off of 2 - 3 hours a week when you find the time to play. Moreover, you don't want that time to be laid into acquiring players on the transfer market, an impossible feat without the money. You kinda just want to play. I get the incentive that its cool to make your own teams. I like that idea as well, but the fact that new IFs and what not enter the game on a weekly (or daily?) basis makes it incredibly hard to keep up to pace when you simply dont have the time. Also, whenever you feel like "oh now this team starts coming together well", then they release a new fucking title and you have to start all over again, throwing more time (or money) into this black hole. But you might just be right. It's not suited for me. Not anymore. Apparently then EA doesn't care about their 30+ year old customers who once enjoyed to play their sports titles.

"Then we don't even have to debate the fact that this game is tailored towards teens with tremendous amounts of time (and money) on their hand, and attributes those with more time better chances of winning simply because of that; time and money." You are right, we don't have to discuss it because it fairly obvious. People with more time on their hand, will have a huge advantage, like with any other multiplayer game. Obviously the p2w aspect sucks, but that's one way for people with less time (30+ with steady income) to make up for that missed time, and that's exactly what EA is trying to do. Let the kids grind out the game, and let the older ones buy into it to make up for not having that much time anymore. "I can play CS at 2500 - 3000 elo just fine without having to put in more than a couple of hours every week and I come off rather well. I never had to invest more time or money into that game to be competitive in the better end of players (in my opinion, some will disagree but factually most players are not at that rating)." And why do you think that is? because you've spent more time in the past, so you built a certain skill level base that helps you to play well even if you're not putting in huge amount of times, but at some point, you surely did right? "With FIFA thats impossible, unless you are incredibly talented and can go against 90+ avg teams with your own team of scrap players. Not to mention the amount of time required to actually setup teams and adjust tactics etc., and you have to do this based off of 2 - 3 hours a week when you find the time to play. Moreover, you don't want that time to be laid into acquiring players on the transfer market, an impossible feat without the money. You kinda just want to play." Yea, you will most likely never be able to afford the biggest and best icons, but if you play your weekly Rivals games, and maybe scrape together a couple of wins to play for Gold2, you will have decent rewards each week without having to spent a massive amount of time. "I get the incentive that its cool to make your own teams. I like that idea as well, but the fact that new IFs and what not enter the game on a weekly (or daily?) basis makes it incredibly hard to keep up to pace when you simply dont have the time. " What EA does with constant new promo releases is to keep the player base entertained and hooked to the game, if they wouldn't do that, the backlash would be huge. Overall we can conclude, the game is not suited for you to play super competetive, but if you focus on having fun and trying to work towards your dream team, it's still worth playing in my eyes.

It was great back when there was no FUT. Literally destroyed the game. Btw fuck P2W and monetization on playable loot boxes. Cosmetics I can deal with, but what EA is doing is on a ludicrous level of retardedness. They are milking money out of teens that don't know better. And so is Valve btw., who the fuck even cares about skins? At least they knew how not to fuck over the gameplay with that.
