    The time of year has come once again. Soccer is in full swing and what better then the time of year where the new Fifa is released. Hoping they obviously improve on what I thought was a very good "progression year" for them last year.

    Also very excited for the new player face scans as it will make using the MLS players much more enjoyable. The trailer only showed a few but I wouldn't be surprised if most of the league was scanned which is awesome.

    Only other player I remember seeing scanned from the MLS for sure was Kei Kamara(NER). Hopefully they didn't half ass it with just doing a few players from each team but the trailer has me optimistic!

    Now questions:
    • What team will you start off with in the beginning of the FUT season?
    • What players are you most interested in playing with?(Transferred players, players new to the game?)
    • What game mode do you enjoy playing the most?

    Despite spending buckets of money wit FIFA/EA, I still didn't get the beta. I just hope my players aren't so eager to put it into my own goal.

    I usually try to rock some type of MLS/USA hybrid as my fut starter team but the Giovinco SBC really fucked up the market for MLS players. Not enough meta players to stay longer.

    P.S. there is no scripting

    I think the last (and first?) FIFA I played was 12. I played maybe a few games in the season and then put it down because I guess I forgot that I don't really enjoy sports games.

    But I'm hoping that because I've been following NYCFC much more closely than I have any other team (even the Yankees), that I might be able to enjoy it a bit more this time around.

    Anyone want to provide their professional forum opinion on it when it releases?

    It comes out on September 29.

    I hope they switch up the WL format somehow. 40 games in three days in flat out to much unless you do this professionally or(for youtube, being 16 and younger). I think they should do one of two things:

    Easy option: Just add the 4th day(Monday).

    Hard option: Change it to almost a seasons table where your ranked by your win % and playing a certain number of games to be qualified(Ex: 25-30 games weekly)(Ex: 80-100 games to rank in Monthly). Tiers are already in place with Bronze.2 - Top 100 so it would be easy to place players based on those tiers+win%. Also it will make things more fair where you play opponents more near your skill level and win %. Below is what Tiers would face off against each other.
    • Bronze 3 - Silver 3 - (Win% Ex: .200%-.450%)
    • Silver 3 - Gold 2 (.400%-.600%)
    • Gold 2 - Elite 1 (.500%-.700%)
    • Gold 1 - Top 100 (.700%-CAP%)
    Rewards could work the same as they do now. Above is just for matchmaking and finding an opponent in you tier.
    Just spitballing here but I know EA would never go this far lol

    Just downloaded the demo. Can't wait to play the same exact game with slightly improved graphics.

    Don't worry, some aspect of it will be just different enough to be infuriating.

    PK’s have been changed so you don’t have to press on the stick to start your run. As soon as you start pressing the shoot button your run will start. I guess convenient but I had gotten used to the way they changed it for 17.

    I do however like the new initial kickoff at the start of each half and after goals. You now kick out out of the circle instead of a quick pass to the player right next to you and it gives you more time to make a decision on what you want to do on the ball without getting bum rushed.

    Is that not just representing the change in the Laws of the Game? A year ago the IFAB got rid of the law saying that you can't pass backwards from a kick-off, and from that point on no-one needs to send two players to the centre circle so no-one does.

    Watch much soccer, m8? :)

    They actually changed the rule before FIFA 17 came out, but the rule didn't make it into the game.
