Haven't gotten it yet nor PES, but I might end up getting both. I'm a crack whore when it comes to FIFA. 

Been doing the FUT web app as of now until I actually get the game, and this is how my team is looking atm.

Posted this in the other topic, but the ratings for the Peruvians are a complete joke.

86b0240f9eda753ee9bcbf8ffc576081.jpg

Its understandable to not have Paolo Guerrero in the game due to the mess of the Brazilian licenses, but he should feel lucky he was left out as he would have had a joke rating under 80 simply for not being in Europe. You can see exactly that the ones playing there are the higher ratings. In a way, yes its accurate because its the better continent but you can't base it solely on club. Its all stock really, how well a club does and statistics. 

Here is how I would rerank these players.

Jefferson Farfan - 75

Andre Carrillo - 77

Raul Ruidiaz - 76

Paolo Hurtado - 76

Carlos Zambrano - 75

Luis Advincula - 77

Alexander Callens - 72

Renato Tapia - 72

Yoshimar Yotun - 80

Andy Polo - 64

Hansiell Riojas - 65

Cristian Benavente - 65

Ivan Bulos - 65

Yordy Reyna - 73

Pedro Aquino - 80

Edison Flores - 78

Frank Romero - 54

 

If Paolo Guerrero was in the game he should be at least an 85. As for Pedro Aquino, I can understand why he's a 65. He just joined the Mexican league and in development in this game it would have made most sense to put him at 65. That begs the question though, why is Hansiell Riojas a 69! He's only higher than Aquino because he was the one hit by that paper airplane at Wembley. Its time for Guerrero to get hit by one, he'd become a 95.

Aquino was by far and away the best player in the Peruvian league earlier this year, yet Hansiell Riojas got a better rating. Joke.

On the bright side, they got good photos of them. There have been some embarrassing snaps over the years. This is my favourite.

The first time in forever I got a FIFA game at launch date. I've started a career mode with Real Madrid, which I hadn't done since FIFA 07. But with the current team I just can't resist the temptation to play all the top teams in the league and the CL.

I also made a back-up career mode to play with other teams. I started at Tottenham and got Bas Dost for way too much money (€50mln).

Overall I like the new gameplay as it's very pass-oriented, but it does once again seem slow. If you change direction with any player that isn't Ronaldo, you accelerate at a snail's pace.

The Ronaldo edition came out yesterday, it's more expensive for little gain so I'm just waiting until Friday.

Thanks your lucky stars, I don't have a PS4 to play...I had a pretty good West Ham career mode on FIFA 17 and started one with Pompey before I left the UK. Miss career mode.

Just as well as your ultra defensive tactics were annoying as shit.

Currently trying to set the commentary language to English, which is surprisingly convoluted.

It is truly amazing how it has been AT LEAST since FIFA 11 that you couldn't simply change the commentary language in-game, and that the Dutch commentary has been 80% the same since FIFA 13, in addition to being badly acted by the most annoying commentator who mispronounces every name that isn't Dutch.

I turned off commentary in the last FIFA, best thing I ever did.

Also, is anyone finding defending frustratingly difficult this year? This is the first time ever that I'm absolute AIDS online, had a record of around 250-100 last year and I'm currently 13-15 and an absolute shambles.

I've heard people say the defending is harder, but if anything I find it easier to do 1-on-1 marking, although the ball does get through in the chaos more often than I'd like.

Just had a terrific match in career mode. My first derbi and it lived up to the hype.

I was getting absolutely slaughtered in the first half, so in half-time I decided to go all or nothing (since I already had nothing). Took Benzema off, moved Ronaldo to the front, put Marcelo on the left flank as a full-blown attacker, swapped Modric for Isco, and put in Kroos for Asensio. Basically the most fast and attacking formation I could push together, and absolutely raped them on the counter. Feels good when your HT changes actually make a difference.

It's awful. Had two games online yesterday and won 2-1 an 5-4, I wasn't excited about either game I just sat there thinking about how much of a mess this game has become.

Tried it myself for a few games and struggled to find the appeal really.

It used to be good, but the dynamics of the game continue to drop. FUT for me stopped being good after FIFA 13. 

Match placing as well. Could have a full silver team and face an opponent with Team of the years

I got it last night but I've only played one game so far, I'm gonna start a career mode with Liverpool after the match. Hopefully they haven't completely neglected it again this year.

No, I spent 5 minutes in that mode in FIFA 17 to see what it was, and then I realised that I don't care for it at all.

I'm getting the hang of it now but you've got to jockey with LT (on Xbox) now so there's a more buttons to press. If you time your tackle wrong it takes the defender a lot longer to react so you've really got to get it bang on. Add into the mix that FIFA can never select the defender you want and there's so many goals going in that you could see coming a mile away. 

I had a Serie A team in FIFA 14, Bundesliga in FIFA 15, BPL in FIFA 16 so I'm doing La Liga this year. My team is; 

Muriel (Sevilla)

Carrasco (Atleti) Ascensio (Real) C. Vela (Sociedad)

Paulinho/Koke (Barca/Atleti) N'Zonzi (Sevilla)

Gaya (Valencia) Giminez/Pique (Atleti/Barca) Umtiti (Barca) de Marcos (Bilbao)

ter Stegen (Barca)

I have it on the playstation pro 4. Graphics are great but the game itself is covered in bugs like always at the start, this mostly gets sorted after a huge update. Defending, goal keeping are very odd, players stopping still when balls played over the top again is another glitch.   I am sure it will get better after the update.

The release clauses are bullshit. Clubs can just pay the release clause and you can't do anything about it. Already half a season in Manchester City paid the release clause for Sergio Ramos.

The key is to sign all the players you want to keep to new contracts and don't add a clause in their new contract.

I did this straight away, but left clauses in some of the player's contracts, including Paco Alcacer's, who has had his bought out and will be joining Arsenal in January

 

 

 

Ter Stegen

Semedo -- Umtiti -- Pique -- Alba

Verratti - Busquets - Iniesta

Messi ----- Suarez ----- Dembele

 

Subs:

Laporte, Sergi Roberto, Grimaldo, Denis, Rakitic, Deulofeu, Paco Alcacer, Mascherano, Cilessen, Rafinha, Andre Gomes, Paulinho.

 

 

A deal has been agreed to swap Andre Gomes(and money) for Saul with Atletico Madrid in January, so he will be gone in the next window. Also Paco Alcacer will be off to Arsenal, since they paid his clause and I was thinking of replacing him with Antonio Sanabria, who has a 30 million clause at Betis, although I should get him cheaper.

I'll also be shipping out Paulinho when it allows me to and it looks as though I will be losing Iniesta next summer as he won't sign a new contract with the role I'm offering him. I'll probably bring in Thiago Alcantara as a replacement. As for Paulinho's replacement, I'll bring in Carles Aleñá from Barça B and loan him out for a couple of seasons.

Carles Aleñá is a Barcelona youth product and both Sanabria and Thiago spent time in the youth teams originally so that is one of the reasons for buying them, or rather "bringing them back". Likewise, I got rid of Digne and signed Grimaldo.
