Adebayor kinda sucks in the game. Dunno why they made him slower.

I've been struggling to find a formation for Spurs, I just played a game with 4-3-3 false 9 and it was pretty awesome. Just one game so I'll have to use it more to see but I'd recommend giving it a shot.

Anyone else finding precision dribbling (LB/L1) to be far less effective this year? I used to always use it to change direction or find a little space for a shot and I feel like I am losing the ball every time I use it this year. Just using the joystick to navigate has worked better for me. LT+RT seems to be pretty good this year but I never used it much in the past.

What do you guys use to keep the ball in traffic?

jep
precision dribbling far less effective

L2+R2 is the way to go now


my current arsenal formation which works quite well:


Sagna: low attacking work-rate
Gibbs: high attacking work-rate
diaby DM
arteta CM
cazorla CAM
Ox RM
Podolski LS
Giroud ST

yet to buy a contract and been playing the early access everyday, let players get down to one game left . sell them and buy a new one of exact same player. and usually make a profit on this too

I've managed to get **** all in packs as per the usual. Still playing my bargain basement Ligue 1/France team with a core of belgian players that come in for squad rotation (huge mertens fan so have him, witsel, and nainggolan is very underrated/cheap). Aubameyang is pretty good and relatively inexpensive because a lot of people don't know him. Almost wish he were slightly slower though cuz his price is based solely off of speed.

Easy to pick people up cheap on UT atm, but the searching etc is super ****ed. Easiest way is just search one team and eitehr defence/mid/forwards. I bid on a load of chelsea ppl (about 15k worth) pretty sure i got at least 2 cahills, 2 sturridge, marin, couple of the young RB, couple moses lol.

If you have over like 50k coins in the bank you should be able to make a ton if you dont mind the lag etc.

Yeah I wrote an email to play on thursday asking why if it take 3-5 days to deliver, were they posting it on thursday morning.

No reply.

Today I cancelled all my other preorders with them (7 in total) and sent them an angry email telling them I won't be using their site again.

Shopto in future.

I'm assuming my early access still works though.

EA have reduced variance by giving the user more control over each play. Therefore bad players like me cant just rock up and learn a few moves that will win matches. Now the cream will really rise to the top, now the game takes skill. There will be no more easy passing, instant control, perfect crosses or ping pong passing with pin-point precision and weak foot perfect finishes from a player who only uses that foot to stand on IRL...
so you have to be an even bigger nerd to get good at this. i've always played fifa but ea is gonna lose me after that one. first touch ball control has made it a lot easier to just park the bus and counter because you lose the ball every fkn time you run into a brick wall of players who seem to have unlimited stamina.

Same. I've spent half my time restarting the game as it's crashed or something else doesn't work. If they don't patch this within a week or 2 then i'm getting a refund simple as that.

I haven't had many problems with connections on this game, actually had more on 12. Weird.

One thing that continues to tilt me is why in the world haven't they made stamina actually matter yet in h2h? Game would be a lot more fun if people had to sub out guys they speed spammed. Would also add so much more strategy and it is such an easy fix.

Can't play FUT or head to head as it just loads forever then crashes. Pretty gutted tbh spent all day trying to get it to work.

I don't like the gameplay at all, when attacking all players seem to charge forward and when defending they all charge back. The defence setup is beyond ridiculous leaving gaps all over the place. Plays more like basketball then football imo.

Loving the game so far so much more fluent but will take a while to get used too

Probably, not for me though.. my nipples got a little ffffwet.

Played about 5 games now and the lobbed through balls seem a bit too overpowered tbh.

Nice post cashy, do you use any custom tactics with that or just the arsenal default?
