    I've spent a bit more time with this and I'm just not getting along with it. You cannot hold the ball up. It's like touch rugby - if a player touches you, you lose the ball. Players feel like they're moving through mud which doesn't help with close control. I even don't like the slow dribble thingy (holding right trigger IIRC) because unlike FIFA you don't shield the ball from the opposing player, you do the opposite by facing the player. I can't play the way I want to. The game is designed for wing play with through balls.

    @Blurp That's simply not true, last years version you could shield the ball and I can't see why they'd take that out.

    Thing was with shielding the ball is weak and small players found it very difficult to do since you can just barge them over with the stronger players and you'd never get a foul.

    There's even a video which took me all of 2 seconds to search for showing it

    Having big issues playing this online, it's constantly laggy and drops games mid match because the connection is so bad. Only seems to happen with PES too. Any suggestions?

    For once, I can't fault the online side. Well, how it plays anyway. The arrangement system is shite.

    Yeah it's been absolutely faultless for me and I think I've had about 50 games. What you playing on?

    PS4. I see there's some option in game to configure ports so maybe I can try that. Definitely not an issue with the PS4, I've it wired to my router, getting 16Mbps down. Will look into it I guess.

    Yeah its been flawless for me too, do you have an open nat. I'm not sure if that's your issue but its worth a try.

    Isn't this in every football game ever? Moving the player using the stick and sometimes getting your body in the way? In FIFA there's a button for it. It makes things much easier. I think I'm just shit at the game in all honesty. I just can't play it.

    It's set up for the passing game. Think you would struggle playing it any other way.

    Shielding the ball comes down to the player stats rather than pressing a button.

    Not sure, get the ball to Neymar and he can do whatever he wants with it. Easily the best player in the game for me, even if he doesn't have the best overall.

    Lukaku is a battering ram as well, really hard to defend against as he just powers through you all the time.

    Of the opinion now that the difficulty settings are absolutely bullshit in Master League this year. Playing on Superstar and its like my team has been turned into a bunch of useless 10 year olds whilst every team I play against just pings passes around like its nothing before a lofted through ball over my defenders that everyone just stands and admires.

    It still has this weird bug where if I do a pass from a goal kick to one of my defenders, if the opposing player is far enough back, then the AI doesn't challenge me for the ball. If i'm leading, I could in theory just pass it to a defender and run out the clock for quite a while before it seems like the AI just edges closer and closer to me and it goes, "Oh shit right, they have the ball". Very weird. This is on Professional difficulty too. I expect the AI to press me and challenge me for the ball at all times.

    Professional difficulty is easy and not so smart. You need to move up to Superstar and then Legendary if you want the AI to respond with more intelligence.

    I've settled in to my ML now that the Championship has been added and have taken up the Challenge mode with Wolves. It's been a difficult start, but not too bad.

    Turned my ML down to Top Player from Superstar last night and its a miles better experience. Teams play how they should, the difficulty doesn't feel artificial (my players haven't instantly forgotten how to play football), and there are far less goalmouth scrambles from defenders making questionable decisions when trying to clear the ball.

    I tend to play on whatever difficulty level enables me to win most, lose some. That's usually Top Player, but sometimes Professional. I hate getting bogged down in dour midfield scraps.

    I still haven't touched the single player, whenever I get a chance to play it I just stick 3v3 on. I'm level 20 now whatever that means.

    @Decks not tried 3v3 that often because so far every time I have I've not had a game that's had 3v3 human players.

    2v2 happens quite a bit but it's still very good. If it puts me on my own at the start I just quit out of matchmaking and try again. Sometimes takes a couple of tries.

    Glad it's not just me. Ridiculous matchmaking system. Which reminds me, accept all invites etc to the various EG clans!

    Some good games there chaps! Sorry that was about my lot... Up since 6 after only 5 hours sleep last night.

    Sorry I missed the mic stuff. Headset wasn't charged, and I was on kid ear out too.

    Good games Dougs!

    We ended with a 6-5 loss - I think we all need some defensive training!

    Yeah, I couldn't stop scoring last night but my defending was awful. Good games though.
