    Just got this. Had about 3 games and it still feels a bit labored and sluggish, but definitely plays better than the last one. Also, my players control the ball like arse. Is there something I should be doing on the first touch? I've used the right stick a bit but they knock it a bit too far for it to be useful in regular situations.

    I use the LT to control the ball, try to stay away from the sprint button

    So addicted to FUT... I got the game for 31, surely that means I'm allowed to drop a bit of cash on FIFA points right? Surely...

    @Emth Don't do it!!!! Learn to trade on the market rather than spending real money.

    Act like a dumbshit and they will treat you as an equal

    The ball control thing isn't particularly something new, it just makes much more of a difference in this version.

    Far too many just spammed the sprint button in older versions of Fifa, do it here and you'll invariably have a heavy touch somewhere in the middle of the park, allowing the opposition to get a tackle in.

    I love it as i used LT to take the ball in anyway. Always seemed to give you better control imo.

    I almost never use the sprint button, especially when I'm passing it around. Was just having one too many heavy touches. LT seems to have solved that problem though. Cheers.

    Yes, sprint is much more useful to accelerate quickly away from your marker or obviously where you've played a ball behind the defence.

    My game keeps crashing when i try to load up manager mode. Doesnt matter anyway im not really getting on with it so was thinking of trading.

    Experiencing exactly the same delayed actions, random cancelling and players stuttering and refusing to latch onto a free ball that has plagued the other Fifa games. Shame as there is a really great game here that is so close to being uncovered.

    Are you sure you're not playing Fifa 12 ;)

    Can't see nothing but the beautiful game here :)

    It's been in every Fifa ever. It makes the game frustrating as fuck. Really noticeable button delay (although this is more to do with the sluggish power bars TBH) and players refusing to continue a run and stalling when through balls are played. The rubber banding in this game has always been really noticeable and it just makes for a frustrating time of it sometimes. I'm not moaning because I can't score, I'm getting my fair share, but I can't ignore all of the bollocks that goes on in between.

    PES is good this year fella. Give that a whirl if this doesn't float your boat. Personally I'm loving it, sounds like we are playing two completely different versions of the game. This years is fantastic IMHO.

    At least you have a choice ;)

    Finding it exactly the same, it's getting really frustrating now.

    A stuttering start to life in FUT seasons div 3, won 2 lost 2.
    Really impressed with the variety of goals I've been scoring. Movement is fantastic also, overlapping runs, bending runs to stay onside etc... All without the need to spam the give and go button.

    Think I may struggle for promotion need 12 points from 6 games

    Legendary
    Legendary
    World class
    Legendary
    Professional
    Legendary

    Not looking good! :D

    With 2 games to go I've secured Div 3 safety and need to win my final 2 games to clinch promotion!
    Stopped the rot with 2 wins and a draw in my last 3 games.

    Loving the skill games on this too. :)

    Getting back into this now. Realised that my issue with game speed was down to my system settings, limiting to 60fps and using vsync and switching game speed to slow seems to have done the trick now!

    Started playing FUT last night, not a mode I've used much, but damn its addictive

    One thing I don't get, is it good to have a team full of bronzes or should I just make the best team I can?

    Also why are there so few 442 players :-(

    @THFourteen So few 442 players because it's one of those formation that everyone uses. To get the best value you need a formation that's a bit different from what I can see.

    I've created 3 squads (although I will whittle down to two squads). A bronze squad, silver and gold squad. The best thing to aim for (from what I've seen) is to get a good chemistry. Players that like the formation, play in the same league as those around them, and are in their favourite position all add to chemistry.

    This game's totally clicked with me now. All of a sudden my control isn't as bad as the Incredible Hulk on rag week and the game is flowing much more smoothly. Strange how it all just drops into place all of a sudden sometimes. Thanks for the tips round here though about choosing which foot to control with etc ;) and the good ole super cancel! All comes in handy!

    Now.. the quest for Seasons supremacy awaits once more!

    vivir el momento

    Formation modifiers cost a fortune, yet don't seem to increase the value of players on the auction house, so I just get my players by searching for ones that are the right formation, there's always a ton that have been done already.

    I see a feature in career mode is your best player wanting to leave the club. It happened to me with Rossi wanting to leave Villarreal.

    It's pretty difficult to stop them leaving. It's one thing Ronaldo wanting out of Real Madrid, but Messi also requests to leave Barcelona.

    So I started a UT last night only I think I was a bit slow to understand what it is all about. I did notice that players only stay with you for about 7 games at the most so I'm guessing that selling and buying new players is a very regular thing? I did notice that there were attributes you could attach to players that extend their contract but I used the three I had up already (probably a stupid thing to do) and now I have no idea if I can buy more or not.
    Is there a way to keep a player or players you really get on with for longer or is it a case of when their time is up that is it and you need to put them up for transfer?

    Once I know all the ins and outs of this mode I can see myself really getting on with it. Had to drag myself away last night while trying to build up my midfield in the transfer market.
    It is like Pokemon for the lads!

    When you buy a pack you get three or four contract cards with it, and they can be bought for 150 coins on the store. The shiny gold ones give a 24 match extension.

    Awesome, cheers for that. My problem is that I can get quite attached to players in my team and knowing there is a way to keep them around for longer is good news.

    I've just emailed this to my ex colleagues at EA. That's box quote material right there! :D
