Agreed to some extent. Depends what opposition you come up against. When you’re at the top of elite, you will lose most times to a similarly skilled player who has the meta players all over the pitch. As much as I agree with you about building a team that can compete (I’m picking up players like De Paul, Can and Chiesa at this stage) going up against Ronaldo/Messi/Mbape is fine when facing a lower skilled opponent. Come up against someone with a god squad in the highest rivals divisions, or in FUT champs, and it makes all the difference. There’s a reason why everyone is using VVD, certain icons etc. I don’t doubt this would be different if I had started building in Sept 18, but it’s another compelling reason to jump to PES this year. The mechanics aren’t fun either, as you said...
Its taken me a few weeks on fut playing really late and I have 2 92 rated squads on fifa spending zero (got the game on ps4 ea access). I find it very easy to build a good team as you can just buy and sell and play the market. Definitely can compete with that. Having said that I just don't enjoy the actual gameplay mechanics. Torn whether I'll buy either game this year.
Yeah Brazilian who played in the Russian league for Spartak. Tbf you were probably better joining then as you didn't experience the huge downfall of it as time went on. All aboard ! XD
Cheers for that.Wellington was the op Brazilian dude right? Yeah I’m feeling like I will go the same way, although starting 19 in July was probably not the best way to judge Fifa this year. In reality, the fact I waited for it to hit Access in July tells its own story. Time to board the PES train! (y)
Played ultimate team since FIFA 11 and it's gradually gotten worse. Suspected there was scripting for years and it was pretty much confirmed with that dynamic difficulty control patent. Have put a silly amount of money into it and it hasn't really developed much apart from more variants of cards released. FIFA is enjoyable for about a month then the flaws get found out and people exploit them. PES is more clunky but this one runs a lot smoother to the point where I'm not even entertaining FIFA. Plus the best edition of PES is £55 and you get a lot more than the £100 version of FIFA. I missed the FIFA days where you made a Silver team which if you were good, could compete with the best teams and players like Nilmar, Welington, Musa who were sweaty and OP but you had to build a naff team around them to get the right Chem and that was the fun of it. I see PES as going forward and FIFA going backwards and it has got to the point where they've crossed over, hence why I committing to PES this year.
