Played another match of both H2H and UT, UT is just a waste of what should be a good game mode. I know UT has always been more arcadey etc but it is nuts what they have done this year, just hold shoot with anyone even CDMs/ FBs/ CBs from 25-30 yards at a decent angle and it flies at the top corner every time. I was really happy that finesse shots were made poor as i thought that would mean you have to build up nice play and create goals. But it seems its gone the other way and is now much easier to score from outside the box even without finessing.
Also seems like it runs at twice the speed of H2H.
On the + side the interface of UT is very nice this year and they have made it a lot easier to earn coins etc. Just a shame the actual gameplay is terrible atm lol.
Anyone playing early release on xbox or are you all ps3 ?
Im on xbox and up for trying out clubs if anyone else wants too.
Why can some people play onlinee but some cant ? I'm still waiting for midnight..been playing demo with my roommate we were pretty even in12 but he has literally won one game out of last twenty I really like the new features mainly first touch reform and improved offensive ai
Game is definitely tilting right now but the scope of possible skill is there more than ever. FIFA 12 was easy to catch on quickly for certain type of players who like to dribble and contain on defense. FIFA 13 it seems tactics and adjusting to your opponent is highly more important.
I guess it's just difficult to go from being a elite div 1 player to breaking even in the first 15-20 games of the new release, but I imagine that's how it was when I first started playing previous additions every single year.
Also it's worth mentioning that most people were playing are going to be div 1 players so the variance will definitely be high. In October it's going to be the usual slaughter in the lower divisions once everyone gets the game. Obviously it's going to help improve if you're grinding against elite gamers game after game, but games against total noobs is where the real exploits (best way to score, plus larger sample of scoring chances) start to show.
MMD, can you share your custom formation n work rates?
Pretty much agree with all of this. I know the standard is high, I think MMD who mentioned that its just the hardcore likely 90% Div 1 players got the early release. My record is pretty damn solid though, Its like 9-3-3, which in this player pool is rock solid. So its not like Im just upset because I cant crush any more. Results arent the problem, Im not enjoying the gameplay, and thats the biggest thing for me.
I agree about the potential to improve though, as there is now a lot more to get good at, I just hope as I grind through it that the game starts to grow on me.
