re: Anyone on the SB going to get FIFA 13 at the midnight release tonight?


quote:

One thing they improved in this game was through balls. When sending balls to wide players they actually allow you to swing the ball wide where your player either receives it or it goes out of bounds, giving the defender no chance at it. In previous games that ball was often hit directly at the defender.


This was a huge improvement.

The only thing that is bugging me now is my teammates are borderline retarded. I'll be on a GREAT run and they'll run in front of me as soon as I take a shot. I SHOOT, ball hits them, we get an offside. Annoys the piss out of me. I'm having more problems with MY guys crashing shots than defenders. I've only played 2 or 3 games with my City squad so maybe it's a skill thing. My MK Dons team is terrible about it though.

quote:

3. My early returns from scouts so far are fantastic. Have a bunch of youth players with projected overalls ranging from 80-94, with my best at this point being a 15 year-old American RW with a projected overall of 65-74 and a potential of 91-94 Liverpool stackedddddd, EPL frickedddddd


I think they're going to need to change this soon. I like the progression this year better than past games but in just 3 months of scouting I already have 12 projected 80+ minimum guys and 7 of them are at least 91 on the high end. Not to mention several I lost out on to other teams that fell into the same category. A total 5-star scout should find good talent, but ONE of them has given me 4 16-year-olds that are 83-92+ projected.

That's solid, surprised you sold that much though. I need to sell a player or two when January rolls around so I can hire a better scout


Aguero demanded a trade so I got rid of him and rage-sold the others. Basically, I wanted to sell high on a few guys and then buy a team so I could rape Madrid/Aguero in the CL for fricking with me.

So this headline just came up in my career

"Time for a change at Liverpool?"

Are you fricking kidding me? I basically replaced Brendan Rodgers with me and am in the same situation (except I actually managed to land 2 players in the first transfer window). Also, I'm in 8th place in the BPL (8 pts out of a CL spot) and will advance out of group in the Euro League.

Give me a fricking break

I got fired from City in 12 after winning the shield and starting league play something like 2-4-1.

And FML even more: 3/4 of my back line are now out with injuries... Plus one of the back ups I was using just went out with a "Training Injury"

It's gonna be a long December to get to that January transfer window

Watch your stamina throughout the game. I had this happen and then I noticed when it got to crunch time the AI players were in much better condition. I laid off the turbo and voila, better results in the end.

My pro player is on MK Dons (I also have a manager career there) and we had to forfeit 3 games in a row due to not having enough players. 2 league games AND a match to put us in the final bracket for the FA Cup.

Holy shit, it's not that bad b/c it's Liverpool, we have plenty of bodies, just a lot of them currently suck arse

Does anyone know if putting someone out on loan is actually beneficial in this game? I know in 12 you could loan someone out for a full year where they made the starting XI and came back at the same overall level or maybe +1 if you were lucky

I have a few guys out right now but I haven't checked in on them. My pro is playing with MK Dons on loan with several other loaners that are improving by a couple points. One guy started out a 66 CM and is up to a 68 or 69 now.

I am waiting to find out myself. I always just loan out the scrubs at the bottom of the roster to save a little on the wages.

I'm enjoying the frick out of Crystal Palace in career mode. Had an awesome transfer window and hired a few 3* scouts. Sitting 8th in the Prem.

I am running MM with Liverpool myself. I've found Raheem Sterling is money off the bench with a lead. When the other team pushes up it's easy to get him behind the defense with his speed and potentially ice a game for good.

Chelsea approached me for Suarez and I countered asking for 45M Euros (valued around 23M I believe). Sold him for 37M and bought Loic Remy for 17M, bought Stu Holden, and two back up defenders to boost my depth.

Been doing well in EPL with only loss to Arsenal and currently getting blasted 3-1 by Sunderland. Got bounced by Chelse in first Capital One Cup match (shitty draw haha).

Went out and got a 4* scout for Aston Villa. Only have $1M in the bank, but I'm thinking that it'll be worth it.

Same here.

Also, perfect example of why disk protection is ALWAYS worth it. bumped into my xbox, scratched the shite out of my copy of FIFA, 10 minutes later, brand new copy from Gamestop.
