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


I get ya.

Yeah, I'm currently scouting England, Brazil, and South Korea. My English scout will always scout England, my second scout will bounce around between big football nations (Italy, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, France, maybe even Japan and Belgium), and my Korean scout will bounce around and do three-month assignments in random countries. I let him do his home nation to start, then I'm thinking about a tour of Africa.

I decided this year I'll do a Manager Mode with Barca before moving down to Mallorca like I normally use. Holy shite it's easy when you have Barca money to spend.

My scouts are currently in Argentina, USA, and Spain. Have a couple good American defenders in my youth academy. Anyone else scared away by players who are exceptionally short?

Unless their name is Messi, yes.

How long do you send scouts out to recruit? And when do you decide to recall them?


I always send them out nine months, I haven't experimented too much with different settings. I usually just hit up England, Spain, and Germany first. Then Italy, Brazil, France/Portugal/Netherlands/Belgium, then usually Africa somewhere, Korea, and USA. I just rotate, making sure to hit up the "big" soccer countries. The thing is you will find good players everywhere. I have a Canadian CB thats a beast and found a RB in Cameroon that shows promise. I've also signed busts from Spain and England. You just never know for sure.

**To SFP: I usually sign the 5* scouts because the margin of error is lower immediately, and I love the idea of scouting. Just like recruiting/drafting in NCAA/Madden. It's what I like in these games. It can be too easy at times though, you're right about that.

I usually immediately sign anyone that has above 65-70 OVR at the top end and potential of 90+, if I have room then I sign 60-65 with 90+ potential. I usually take a wait and see approach after; knowing that I'm going to miss out on some. I pretty much never sign players that are less than 60 OVR, unless its a LB. I always make sure to clean out the youth academy too. If they fall below 88 potential I usually just release them knowing I can find better. The hardest players to find so far are LBs and CAMs. I have found 1 LB he is 90+ potential, but at 16 he is 54 OVR. I have found no CAMs with 90+ potential. Most are 60-67 OVR with 78-85 potential.

shite that's a long post, apologies...

LB are always hard to find

i just typically buy CAMs and LBs

just search max age 18-20 and like a 70 min and you'll find future superstars. usually they're only $2.5-$4M also and like $10k/week for 5 years. keep the badasses and then sell the excess to infuse your budget with $

Anyone know how to get rid of custom formations from FIFA 12? Mine were automatically in here, but I'd love to get rid of them and start over.

I'm playing with a 3-5-1-1 right now. It's awesome. Started a manager mode with Arsenal.

Koscielny --- Mertesacker --- Vermaelen

------ Mikel Arteta ----- Sergi Roberto---

Muniain ------- Wilshere -------- Neymar

---------------------- Reus ---------------------
------------------ Luis Muriel -----------------

So far I'm good. I just like the idea of having my own LB prodigy come up through my academy. Whenever Coentrão gets too old this is probably the route I'll take. As of now I have Hazard (93), Oscar (88), Götze (88), and De Bruyne (85) at CAM, so I am quite happy.

ETA: I think my freezing problem has to do with International matches. I saved a back up but I may seriously cry if I have to start again...
ETA2: I read on the internet that if you turn off your internet it may keep from freezing. So far this has worked, must be an issue with reporting back to EA.

Dude is an 87 and has 16 goals in January. They made him and Benzema too good

Ronaldo put in a transfer request during the January transfer window

It's alright though:

Casillas
Ramos Hummels Pepe Marcelo
Khedira Alonso
Goetze Rooney Neymar
Benzema

Vidal, Suarez, and Lucas Moura on the bench

How much did he sell for, and to who?

I wonder how much you could have worked them up.

Musa from CSKA Moscow is a good pickup for anyone who needs a young winger. Ridiculously fast, agile and strong. Ball skills need polishing, but he's got mounds of potential at 19.

Transfer Window just slammed shut. Here's my damage.

IN:
Ganso (Santos) $25M
Bender (Dortmund) $12M
Musa (CSKA) $6M
(RVP, Kagawa, Buttner, Powell)

OUT:
Nani (PSG) $30M
Anderson (Bayern) $10M
Fletcher (Inter) $6M
Evans (Stoke...I swear) $4M
(Berbatov, Park...can't remember the rest)

$43M in, $50M out...enough left over to help stack my scouting system.
