FIFA 18

Defending is s****...

Anyone else got it?
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

No, I usually cave in and buy it as soon as it gets released but I'm resisting this year (might get it at Xmas if there's a cheap deal). Downloaded the demo and doesn't really seem much different to FIFA 17.

It's not really. Defending is a lot worse though. I hated FIFA 17 too.

I find that I play it quite a bit for 2 or 3 months but get a bit bored of it by Xmas. Only played FIFA 17 about 4 or 5 times since January. I think I'll enjoy it more if I only buy it every 2 years as it'll feel more different to the previous version (e.g. if you went from FIFA 16 to FIFA 18 you'd notice more changes).

Tried the PES EURO 2016 game last year but didn't really like that.

Defending is really hard, I love it. People can't just sit back and let the game defend for them, you actually have to pay attention! This is one of the better of the recent FIFAs imo.

f***ing awful game. They've made defending so tricky that everyone goes ultra defensive counter attack pace abuse <erk> Didn't think they could make people more reliant on pace and strength but they've managed it. It's a shame because there is a lot of good points but currently it's infuriating

So I'm just playing my first season on FIFA-18, defending seems find to me tbh.

I've kept it super realistic and signed Danny Rose, Shaqiri and James Maddison.

I terminated Slimani's loan and recalled Mitrovic. Tried to sell Joeslu straight away but as he's a new signing it won't let me <neg>

Leicester have met Shelvey's release clause (wasn't bothered so didn't offer him a new contract), any suggestions for good replacements?

(FIFA 18...)

I bought FIFA 19 a few weeks ago - f*** me I miss 18. Saying that though, you think FIFA 19 is bad, try PES2019... Jesus f***ing Christ.
