No prizes for guessing which teams i faced...... :roll:
Do people seriously just spend the whole year either picking Barca & Madrid? It's absolutely pathetic.

Earlyer I regretted canceling pre order after hearing it's gone back to beta level. Now I'm glad I did cancel after hearing your feedback. Sucks that they destroyed what was an awesome game. Many here will slate me here but I have since pre ordered fifa for the first time in years. I needed my football fix and I found fifa demo to be slower then usual.

It's early days and I'll play some more online tomorrow. It could just be that i played against Madrid & Barca and a couple of pressure spammers. They didn't suceed though which is a good sign. I enjoyed the matches, i might just need to get my online head on as been playing single player for a couple of days and need to adjust, i didn't like the beta at first.
It certainly hasn't been ruined and gameplay was very smooth & fluid so i wouldn't write it off just yet.

What is up with the image quality in this game (playing on PS4 Pro on 4k OLED)? It's terrible - blurry and has shimmering edges and lots of dithering. Wtf? Legit looks like 1080p.

Agreed. 60 fps option on replays and cut scenes makes a world of difference to overall game fluidity! Good port, runs like a dream! 8-)

Looking forward to proper kit mods and other sweet graphics mods exclusive to the platform. ;)

On a more serious note, quick mention on the graphics. They've definitely had an upgrade this year.....the lighting for me is exceptional, same for detail work. Like example substitutions in daylight matches you'll see the sunlight beam off of the electronic board as he holds it up and puts it down.

Looking forward to ML career mode.

Seems to be a lot of space for the cpu to exploit and of all the teams I've played they all seem to play the exact same way. One thing is for sure, its not a tight game the space makes sure of that.

PC players Q? what do you think the best Brightness and Contrast is for Day and Night

The fouls issue is killing this game really, You can't enjoy having identical matches with the same type of goals....Laser shot, placed shot,rebound,soft header

No set pieces no,penalties nothing ... And no one on one due to the AI always dropping back and the goalie glued to their line.

Fix it!

I got a FK outside the box but that was only 1 in 5 games.

Little nigggle about the ball braking loose into space, your 2nd player with the "empty" icon, doesn't move to the ball and there is a slight delay after hitting L1 to get him under control, which give an advantage to the cpu teams.

Personally I just went by the brightness config guide, for me that ended up brightness 20 contrast left as is 50. Looks pretty sweet to me.

I have been getting fouled multiple times during every match with the CPU so far but I've only been playing the CUP modes. Waiting for the update and an OF before I start Master League and I'm hoping I get to see a consistent frequency of fouls.

They just need to make the AI more aggressive at times so they initiate a foul. If I go in holding the tackle button and run into a player it can lead to a foul, so it's almost like the AI go in as if the left stick is being used only, meaning they rarely foul.

I've also found I've been caught late after a shot and again, it doesn't recognise the foul. I know sometimes the ref can see that as an advantage, but not when they've wiped me out.

Same here...but only during replays for me. Has it to do with tv settings?

I've had two fouls per game. But agreed the ai needs to be
More aggressive in the tackle.

I've been pulling my defensive line back manually with the d-pad during the match. It works best when you lose possession in the oppositions half. I also track the wide runners instead of going for the man in possession

I've honestly not found these high balls as annoying as others. I'd take it over some of the awful stuff we've had from the CPU in previous years, anyone remember in 15 when the CPU would literally never ever cross the ball? Or when they used to play keep ball for 5 minutes in their own half with no chance of getting the ball back? Refusal to shoot high or from outside the box?

These were all much worse IMO so I'll take what we've got as a positive ATM, it could definitely do with toning down but is not that big of an issue or gamebreaking. There will always been certain flaws with A.i, it's inevitable unfortunately.

Def -1 game speed for me. It's perfect, measured, good build up. Tighter I feel

Quick question chaps.

Does anybody know when the roster update is being put up? Logged in to the game about 4:30 this morning and wasn't there yet.

after CL last night, i was watching german conference, i played 2 random selection matches against a buddy. my first 2 matches of PES2018! and i'm more than happy that this mode made it back to PES!! unbelievable fun to steal and protect players!!!!! :ROCK:
i just couldnt stop to grin all over my face when my friend tried to get lewandowski 2 times and i blocked him...!!! :PP :)

as i had to go to bed because of work today, i squeezed in my first ML match with RB Leipzig (prof. 15min, fm)... just to quick check on ML... this first match against the AI was pretty... decent... life like... awesome!

it ended 3:2 for me! and what a match that was. i felt challengend and satisfied! i got up 1:0, 1:1. i got up 2:1 again. 2:2. and then in the final minutes... i was patient... really patient... i tapped the ball in underneath the keeper. such a lovely tap in by the penalty area rushing Forsberg! man... what a relieve!

i just cant wait to get back on the controller. "sadly" i have to play a cup semi final tonight after work. i hope i can get PES out of my head at least for that match! ;) and then i want to go home and keep on playing ML!!!

btw: like the fact that advanced instr. are disabled by default! AND: 3 fouls (1 fk at goal) by the AI in my first match! none by myself!
Don’t go for a 50/50 ball unless your 80/20 sure your gonna win it.
