Fifa 19
« on: September 27, 2018, 01:23:43 am »
So, I caved in and bought it  ;D

Early thoughts are that standing tackling button is more broken than ever before! Despite that, the game is a million miles better than Fifa 18. It is hard to finish chances which is good. There does seem to be some skill involved. At times the ball does take some rather pinball type bounces off players, but I'm enjoying it despite only have a 1-2-3 win/draw/loss record so far.

What it will be like when all the typical meta teams arrive, and people actually know what they're doing to abuse the match engine I don't know. Also the usual first patch will be looming in the next week or so. At the moment it's promising and most fun I've had on Fifa since the first few days of release last year.
I imagine things will go downhill after this first week though.

Yeah TWS - there are some great things about it - may I never again see 10+ goal games!

But I do think too that like you say, won't be long before a YT-er gets hold of exploits. The finesse from outside the box is already over powered - especially with those players that have the finesse shot trait.

Hello gents

Same here, liked it, more difficult.

You cant score an easy goal with sane's weak foot anymore
In f18 all were going in.

There are some glitches as always hope first update does not change the core gameplay. Seems like tactics formations will be very important this year

Hate it.

I was actually one of the few who really enjoyed 18.  Had a great team, and enjoyed the gameplay. 
Hate the fact that every version of FIFA reaches an 'end'. 
How many times do EA need to re-invent the game of football?

Early days, but find 19 to be simply awful. 

First touch is shocking on pretty much every player, so possession is constantly lost.
Nicely timed interceptions ultimately are flawed, due to the loose first touch simply returning the ball to your opponent.

And some have already found how to exploit the game mechanics..
Every other opponent I face is simply over running me in attack with 6 or 8 men flooding forward, whilst having two banks of 4 in defence when I try to counter.  Go figure?

Played 18 last night.  'nuff said.

Yeah Nop - there are certainly some serious issues affecting the enjoyment factor.

Slowly starting to hate it, and I feel that pouring more money into it, to get the best players, is of course flawed logic. May be ok for a short stint - using a couple of new Icons - but then the same issues will still be there and frustrations will mount again.

I hate it that EA have the monopoly in this space.

The higher up you go in the Divisions, the worse the gameplay gets. Didn't play, or want to play, enough to get to the weekend league, but I would guess it would be 4321, with all defenders and midfielders deep and on stay back, with three pacey forwards, probably Sane at LF, PotM Lucas at RF. They'll certainly always defend by only controlling the central CM, and when the AI steals possession, probably after closing down a dodgy first touch, they'll drive a pass forward in the direction of the front three and just try and through ball it to another attacker. Played a guy that did this all game yesterday. He finished with below 50% pass accuracy and 32% possession. I went 1-0 down after my standing tackle bounced perfectly for him, but luckily managed to get an 85th and 89th minute winner. Was a tragic match.

People are definitely learning how things work, and it'll be downhill from here as every match becomes exactly the same.

On a brighter note, an hour ago I completed the Tough hybrid SBC that gives the mega pack. Wasn't quite sure what an earth was happening as a silver looking board appeared. But then Shearer walked out! My first packed icon ever!

Gave 19 another try last night.  Nearly broke my controller.

Think it must be the worst FIFA ever.  It is simply appalling.

Hoping a patch will fix things.  But until then I am back on 18.

Last night was horrific.  Every team the same. i.e. basically what TWS said.
Just impossible to play against.  And sooooo tiresome.

No enjoyment in it whatsoever.

Waste of 30 quid.

I'm off to go play 18 with this..

      94Ronaldo     92Suarez    93Messi
                            89Bale
                 94Parejo          93Couthino
92Hernandez   94Godin    91Garay    92Roberto
                           93Oblak



EDIT: Will try again tonight.  Am reading so much good stuff about 19... I must be doing it wrong.
Word is, that it's like a whole new game, and needs 'learning' over again.  Old dogs...

I'm enjoying it. Patch will hopefully sort out the few bugs

Must admit, I have never had as much of a relaxed weekend league as this one. No rage, just move onto the next one until complete. Finished on 13 wins with 2, 4 game losing streaks in there, but few complaints over those losses.

One major thing that annoys me is the amount of second chances the opposition forwards get. When tackling head on, a lot of times, the ball kindly ricochets back to the striker. Frustrating

In all though, with a few tweaks, one of the best fifas in a good while

Tried again.  Really did.

No.
Just no.

Not for me.

I'm out.

I don't hate it, but the standing tackles are abysmal and it just encourages people to just sprint around with a midfielder or striker whilst the AI defends for them. Manual defending results in some of the most ridiculous pinball stuff I've ever witnessed in Fifa, and that is some achievement by EA!

Despite not hating it, I've not played a match since last Thursday. Just don't have the urge to do it. FIFA 18 has cured me! Dare say I'll play a few games at some point this week, but just not bothered at all. Other games to play and RDR2 very close. I'd guess this is the least amount of games I've played on any Fifa after owning it for two weeks.

I have sold up, banked my 250k, and will wait for the market to collapse later in the season, and buy some goodies.
Maybe they'll have patched it into '18 by then.

So glad I don't spend ANY real money on this dross, and that I go halves on the game itself :)

Had a really great session on 18 last night.

Seems all the a-holes have head off over to 19...   ;D

Just played a few games to get the OTW Italian guy through the weekly objectives. The game is getting worse every time I play it. Some of the goals I conceded beggared belief. There was one where I tackled the guy six times but he got it back everytime or just got it straight back with the tackled player and kept going. It is bordering on a joke how badly messed up manual defending is. Just seems that almost every goal involves a manual tackle by me taking a ludicrous bounce to the opponent whilst they just use the AI who make perfect tackles and perfect interceptions much much more often. I don't want to play like that. No way should it be more beneficial to not defend yourself. Game is a joke.

If it wasn't for this I'd be saying this is the best FUT in seven years, but EA want random bounce BS in the game for whatever reason sadly.

I am.optimistic. At least they didn't destro the game with the first patch. Sure the game have his bad moments but pace is not so dominant anymore. I pulled this nice pack today. Cannot complain
