Quite a few people are saying that without a single CDM in front of the defence this year you're going to have problems but Im having them regardless :razz:

Could have sworn I was given the option import UT coins from 14 when I started it on this?

 

Where are they then?

 

Sigh.

points not coins sadly I hoped the same thing till I read it

My first properly lag-free game (from about 10 attempts), I get into a 3-0 lead...


... and I get another server disconnection (EA/FIFA servers, not PSN).


I've found it to be an awful experience so far online. Gameplay lag, menu lag, twats disconnecting when you go in front, random server disconnects, no changes I actually like in UT, Seasons results not counting despite the match finishing....


Not to mention people (myself included) exploiting the new defending system which at the moment feels like a gamebreaker, since it is so easy to cut inside/run past people (yourself included). I know how to defend in this game, I don't think I'm ignorant of how to deal with certain situations but I still find it overly difficult once you play against attackers with pace.


It feels like in every game it's been a case of through ball to pacey striker (when I'm attacking, usually Aubameyang), or just bomb wingers forward. Just read Bramwell's decent article on the main site and I agree that there just isn't much variety to how the game is being played online.


Honestly wish I'd left getting this for a week or two, whilst the server/netcode/imbalances get sorted out. Rather be playing 14, and I think I just might sooner rather than later. This just isn't very fun or very satisfying and I don't think the varying amounts of lag I've come across have any effect on that sentiment.

I've not encountered any lag in games yet, played 10 or 15 games online.

Couldn't tell you how many times its failed to find an opponent though.

There was one enjoyable disconnect right at kickoff that game me my boosted +1000 match coins despite that perk having just expired.

Must not have hit their counters as a match since I used no contracts either, wish I could recreate it :razz:

You can't convert central players to wide, unless he gets an IF as a right sider that isn't happening.

 

considering building this http://www.futhead.com/15/squads/2198258/ had a TOTS Perez on 14 and he was just amazing, one of my favourite players to use last year, quite like the look of that, seem like it will have a decent balance and should be less than 50k to put together

 

 

New plan based somewhat on something I've just seen elsewhere

one thing i was really good at in 14 was defending tbh when other people were whinging i seemed to have it sussed, and aye this is just stupid cut inside and bomb across, doesn't need to be someone with pace either, likes of yaya and tevez with decent physical stats, just muscle through, even if ya get tackled the ball going loose tends to fall in their favour

ok so I have won every game since I started using this squad, its awesome!

 

I've got defending sussed and sorted my finishing out and Im blazing through the leagues.

 

Just played a guy with Martins, Doumbia and Musa up front, he scored 3 times but they were all early and once I'd sussed it even the ridiculous pace wasn't a problem, smashed 5 past him and marched on :D

they've really fucked up the dribbling/physicality stuff, when Kroos/Pepe can't muscle pedro off a ball there's something wrong.

 

but aye get ball sprint doing dribbling and then slot it in, it's like playing basketball

I think the normal game is fine - it's just Ultimate Team where things get a bit ''funny''.

 

There's times when the game literally sucks the ball in the net. I had one the other day where I conceded 3 in ten minutes - all failed clearances - despite me hammering square - the took deflections on the way in the box past the keeper - one where the keeper parried it to the strikers feet in a crowded box.

 

I don't think I'll ever figure out how to combat the quirks - when it decides you're going to lose you lose. Players forget how to pass and control etc, you hit the bar 5 times, but he scores a fluke etc. Same old FUT...

So yeah - after a couple of weeks FUT is way, way worse than last year - which was already pretty shit.

 

It's so fixed it's unreal ffs.

There is so much I dislike about this game. As you may have gathered.

 

It's fundamentally broken in some aspects, if you ask me.

 

I'm more or less comfortable with the defending now but I really don't like the focus on pace and the fact that online games feel so... samey? And the goals - a third of them are finesses shots across the keeper, a third are hard shots into the corners and a third (or maybe more) are the immensely unsatisfying tap-ins.

 

14, at the end at least (to be fair these games go through multiple revisions gameplay-wise as they get patched) felt pretty balanced aside from the overpowered heading (which they've actually managed to fix in 15). I'll admit I'm getting considerably worse results on this as of late than I was on 14 after a while which doesn't help my opinion. So many draws, or late losses when opponents pile on the running at your tired defence with their pacey striker tactic.

naw I'm about the same and winning tbh, basically sprinting past defenders at an angle has bored the balls off me, keepers seem to palm everything if there's power in it too even from stupid distances, it reminds me of fifa 13 where i used to sit with defensive mode on and counterattack with pace , but now I don't even bother with that, you just get either a stupidly fast player and outrun everyone on a diagonal or you get someone reasonably quick with decent physical and run through them

Back on it and using this at the moment with about 45k still banked (considering IF Rodriguez at left back but im not sure of his work rates)

 

http://www.futhead.com/15/squads/5175648/

 

I have this guy on the bench http://www.futhead.com/15/players/576/yassine-chikhaoui/ who has a bit of a cult following (discount Zlatan) on FUT, got him in a pack and I tell you what, hes ace, if it wasn't for the shit nation/league I'd have a team with him starting no question. 5 star skill and weak foot, 6'2" really great all round stats.

I loaned in Lewandowski for 4 games as well, hes awesome, shame hes somewhere north of 150k at the moment

Patch is out that includes some balancing efforts apparently.

I went for Rodriguez, typically weak willed when I see something I want :razz: but he does look good, work rates aside.

 

I like the 4231 variants this time out, those 3 CAMs make it a lot of fun.

I've got a midfield diamond which is a pretty decent system - mainly because Tiote is a rock & Cabella is class. I've got Fabregas & Henderson in the CM roles.

 

It's strange playing without wingers but I've got good full backs - Moreno & Zabaleta so there's a lot of natural width there anyway.

Seems a lot of youtubers are getting their accounts reset from promoting/partaking in coin buying, oddly almost all of them are claiming they've been hacked and had all their stuff stolen and some shiny new graphics have appeared over their WDL records, funny that such a sweep of hacking occurred on so many prominent players all at once :razz:

 

Glad EA are actually doing something tbh

I may or may not have bought coins. ;) It's difficult to trade mind because there's always someone snapping up cards automatically.

 

Bought some Sterlings/Welbecks/Naldos/Ben Arfas and you can make a canny profit like that. Often I just buy a few of any player I think is going to play well the weekend coming.

I have before, only so much you can do, but getting rid of coinsellers, who are running list of the bots, will even out the market and make the rewards from playing more worthwhile which can only be a good thing.

 

EA released stats this week saying that 80% of all transfer market searches are done by bots which is just crazy.

That's mental.

 

I bought 100k for £7 on two separate occasions. Makes more sense than spending it on packs to me because I never get ANYONE :lol:
