I'm too broke to get season ticket

I'm leaving in 25 minutes to stop at gamestop before class this morning. I'm pretty pumped for this game.

Shouldn't you at least have a striker on the roster to be a 4+ star team?

Hey now, Suarez is a "striker" although he's probably still listed as a CF in the game

I'm loving this game so far, the attacking runs alone make the game a million times better than 12

Career mode (at least as a manager) appears on the face to be way way more in depth than 12, and more realistic as far as budgets go

How do you create a virtual pro in the game?

Career mode, pick the Player option, should be able to do it from there.

re: FIFA 13 Out Now: Thoughts so far?


this game has some issues. i've played 3 games online and i've found some tactical patterns that make this game bleh

the first touch kills 1/2 - 2/3 of all counters. even if you're passing out to a superb dribbler who isn't sprinting, he'll lose it often...this includes if you use the skill/touch button

you can pass it normally without much worry to midfielders, but if you loft a slow lead ball, it gets lost all the time. hard normal passes? no problem. soft through balls? FIRE BALLS

offensively, the strategy to use is to just load the box and shoot. rebound goals are all over the place, and it's hard to stop them consistently. it's also hard as frick to clear, and since your defenders have shite touch, it's REALLY frickING EASY for offensive players to steal the ball and shoot

then, let me remind you that counters are fricking destroyed, so there is little incentive not to just load the box. 4-2-4 is the formation. throw 6 men in the box and sit back with your defenders. then once the other team slowly moves it back, they do the same. over and over

This. It's been really pissing me off and it's going to take some getting used to.

re: FIFA 13 Out Now: Thoughts so far?


well i've had fifa 13 for 1 day and played 3 games online, so i have some time to adapt

seriously though they have to fix the rebound issue and make counters more realistic, or else you'll see everyone doing what i said above (lumping everyone except 3, maybe 4 guys in the box area and just launching hard prayer shots going for rebounds)

I'm avoiding online play for a week or so, not only for the reasons you describe but because the servers aren't great yet (or are just crazy slammed right now). I'm living career mode thus far

Yea I played one, fast load but then connection started to fall apart, it could have been the other guy though. Still enjoying career too much ATM to start online (although the ability to save starting xi and subs is great)
