FIFA has always been a yearly franchise so far but it has also received its fair share of criticism as well.
I bought over 40 pack with the 8000 EA money that came with the Icon edition, and all 40 packs had nothing but trash, the best player I got was a rated 82 Mascherano. Also the difficulty is ridiculous and unrealistic, I'm playing UT Squad battles, there is a team that had a CB and a Rb as strikers, their chemistry was 22 and overall they were a 72 rated team, I played in Ultimate difficulty and it felt like playing against Barcelona on Legendary, no way a team with such low chemistry and random player positioning be that good, especially when chemistry should affects their gameplay. And dont get me started on the CPU always scoring at the end of the game because somehow they all regain their stamina back and somehow play perfectly.
i probably spent close to $1000NZD last year on packs - this year havent spent a cent and wont, ive stopped playing completely and deleted it. been playing squad battles and you come up against bronze teams - defenders have like 40-50 pace and my wingers and strikers with 90+ pace cant outrun them - and then all of a sudden they ping the ball around the whole pitch and some 50 rated player smashes it in the top corner from 30 yards.....oh and dont even get me started on the disconnects when playing squad battles which is a single player mode WTF
I had a bronze defender with 69 pace outrun Alexis Sanchez who has a 89 pace lol
Wow... Sounds like Rocket League would be a better soccer game, then, at least for someone like me who doesn't like sports games much in the first place.XD
Get PES its so much more laid back and its definetly funner and more rewarding when you score.
FixFIFA boys don't buy more copies and refund your current FIFA 18
Its harder than it sounds, even with all the flaws the game is very addicting. Just like COD.
I know but gamers shouldn't stand for these practices any longer we must put our foot down
No it is not. Just put your mind to it.
It's pretty hard indeed. Most of my friends are Football fans and buys Fifa every year, so if I don't buy it I can no longer play with my friends. Although this year we decided to not buy Fifa18 and continue playing Fifa17, which I believe was a very good decision.
I rarely play Ultimate Team. The mode is a huge rip.
Man when i was a young kid i would buy packs on my moms card, that shit was addicting in a very bad way lol. When people equate loot boxes to gambling, i remember my 10 yr old self blowing my parents money on fifa packs. And i was a frugal kid, this stuff just really gets your adolescent brain in a vice grip. Not to mention every fifa youtuber peddling coins.
I do not feel for them. If you know EA is gonna screw you and you let them take advantage of you, well you bought it on yourself. Euopeans and English are so obsessed with Soccer, they will buy any game with soccer in it or the ps logo on it. Quality be danged.
Just like in the USA with Madden NFL.
Don't forget NBA 2k...whatever number.
I've never played that FUT thing. We play our own "next better player" tournaments offline. 10 bucks per game. I don't get why people enjoy this online thing. Don't y'all have friends?
Wtf? Yeah we do but we dont live in the same house. So we cant play offline 24/7 with friends. Pes is definetly a better party game we play a league where last place pays for dinner 😂
Yeah but we don't all live in government housing together.
Bit late now they've already bought the game.
Lol FIFA is fine. 7 million of you bought it didn't you? Way to stick it to EA.
And here......we..........GO. The snowballing has begun. Publishers beware. LOL
Read that in Heath Ledgers voice 😂
