PES (and a bit of FIFA...)

Both are fucking shit

While they both really aren't really up to snuff anymore I feel like PES has tried to experiment more than FIFA in recent years even if it hasn't done the franchise any good.

Yup. After two transfer windows, United thought it would be a good idea to have Ibrahimovic, Griezmann, Aubameyang, Lukaku, Dybala, and Lacazette all batteling for one centre forward position.

Such a vibe killer for those who love career mode.

Fundamental flaw with Career mode then I suppose. I only played it once with the last iteration before switch over to a game I actually wanted to play instead. I also can't stand how dazzlingly slow FIFA is compared to PES. This is not to say that PES doesn't have its flaws but to me the arcade-ish feel keeps me more entertained than the overly-done simulator mode that FIFA offers.

I can't do career mode. Too unrealistic. I've only been playing UT this year, put absolutely no money into it, but the Squad Building Challenges have rejuvenated the mode for me.

Do we have to merge the 2? I suggest re naming this and having a separate Pes thread?

 

 

Here's my UT. Quite a few untradables there.

Defoe, Son, Alli, Azpi, Mandanda are all untradables.

Separate them. ¬¬

Qualified for the weekend league at the first attempt, will try get a few games done this weekend if I get the chance. On fire with that team atm.

You gonna get POTM Kane to go with Son and Alli? 

I tried playing with my Italy reserve side this weekend and i'm doing shockingly bad, 8 wins from 22 games so far :4_joy:

PES and always PES for me. Even in the years it was utter shite. PES6 will always remain fondly in my memory as the pinnacle of footie sims. Problem is now even with PES being good again, the pursuit of reality takes the fun out of the sim, AI rubber banding, game physics and through ball spamming just kills the fun.

PES5 was my personal favourite. Never got into PES6 (though this was on 360).

I am indeed! It's going to cost a lot of coins to complete, but I've got a decent team of untradables now so I'm going for it. This weekend has been extended to Tuesday morning so I should get a few more wins. I never have the time to play at the weekend but qualify anyway just incase. Working tonight but I'll get some done tomorrow. Italy reserve side for the weekend league? xD

If PES had the licenses then I'd say I easily prefer them. The gameplay is better and the master league is great. The lack of licenses is annoying though especially as they actually do the licensed kits better than FIFA.

Hope we can get to a point where exclusive licenses are no longer a thing and both games can show us the best of what they can do without limits.

I've never liked career mode. I think having FM killed any buzz I have for that.

I went to PES for 16 and for 17 I've just not bothered with anything, doesn't help only having a 360. I did play FIFA 17 on an Xbox One though and was actually pleasantly surprised, felt it had significantly improved. Contemplated getting it but probably got other things I ought to spend my money on to be honest. Not sure I'd play it enough to justify it.

This Harry Kane player of the month squad building challenge is an expensive one!

Why is it whenever I chose a 4 star team on this, I get dicked and end up facing one of the best 4.5 star teams? Also if I choose a 4.5 star team, they give me sides like fucking Bayern Munich.

I was Las Palmas the other day and they pitted me against Dortmund, for example. It's shite this game and it's impossible to have a proper game on it unless you pick a 5 star team.

Start an Ultimate Team. For someone who loves building a team as much as you do I'm surprised you haven't played it. 

I never see you online Chris have you got a new account?

Nah still same account mate. I only really go on it at weekends though, usually in the morning and I can never be arsed at night through the week after work much.

 

We will have to have a game at some point mate.

Easily my favorite player in the game. Closely followed by Martial.

Napoli are such a good team to use for career mode, and have a great default formation. The front 3 of Insigne, Mertens, Callejon are tearing everyone to pieces! I bought Javi Martinez to partner Koulibaly at centre back and Isco to play in front of Hamsik and Allan it's easily the most enjoyable career mode I've started to date.
