    I have no expectations for FIFA 14, quite simply. the FIFA games dominate the football video game market wholly and because of that, EA don't need to make any effort in it at all. (NSFW) KSI explains it pretty well in my opinion.

    Am I getting the new FIFA this year?? ...I'm more likely to get struck by lightning, get married next week and see the Xbox One's sales figures beat the PS4's.

    I don't expect them to fix the foul system... I don't expect a "Be a Ref" mode... I don't expect the Ukrainian League... I expect Fifa 13 with the team changes as appropriate.

    I expect some new career mode gameplay. EA has showed some of the screenshots, and it looks pretty neat. I also expect some changes for FUT and other online features. EA should fix the bugs and some gameplay fails.

    They'll have a lot of fixing to do. I can barely play FUT anymore, haha.

    Yeah, but I don't expect too much from it. EA will make FIFA 14 so realistic or whatsoever. Only the next gen consoles will get a whole new gameplay. The PS3, X360 and PC users just get the FIFA 13 gameplay with some team changes.

    I know I usually get kicked off the EA Servers at random times, but what's your issue with FUT?

    I'm getting FIFA 14 for the PS3, no way I'm getting the PS4 at full price. I saw a trailer the other day and during a match you saw Fabregas sitting on the bench! That was so cool! In 13 you only see a bunch of random men The ''Legends'' thing for Xbox also looking interesting...

    Hey if anyone ever wants a game just PM me...if I have time, I'll play you. I'm on PS3.

    I got tired of Microsoft using their money for getting custumors;
    example 1: Legend Cards (Old Legendary Soccer players) exclusive for xbox consoles.
    example 2: Commercial spots where they only let you see the xbox watermark at the end.

    I play on PS3, anyone add me on PSN: SpectraP

    My team is really pacey.

    Klose is a tank. With 91 heading and 99 finishing we puts everything in.

    IF or non? I found that card very unreliable.

    Ah. I see. There's a huge difference, actually. FUT and Kick off are so different. FUT seems much faster.

    Am I the only one that hates that in Fifa 14 you can make players have even more pace? .-. Fifa is becoming all about pace

    I know! I prefer heading over anything. It's the key. Even though, I have a lot of pacey players in order to keep up with all the other pacey teams on FUT.

    ^I do.

    I am doing a coach careed mode with Benfica. I started first season pretty weak, came 3rd but won the cup. Did some changes to my team, bought players like cech and xabi alonso and coentrao, and got a few players like Gaitan and Rodrigo to 85-86.

    Second season I won the league, lost in the final of the cup and the euro cup though. Bought Aguero, sold rodrigo for 70 million, bought hummels and insigne (who's amazing btw).

    Recently started my third season. Bought Lewandowsky and Micah Richards and also bought Pastore, but realized it was a huge mistake since I think Insigne is much better to play behind Aguero and Lewandowsky. Gonna try to sell Pastore in January and if I have enough money will try to buy someone like Silva to play. Team is Cech, Micah Richards, Garay, Hummels, Coentrao, Pastore, Gaitan, Salvio, Insigne, Aguero, Lewandowsky. (4-1-2-1-2)

    I bought that Creation Package and made a team all of customized average-to slightly above average players on manger mode. Just for fun. My created player went from a 84 to a 96 xD.

    Well having played two demo games I've gotta say I'm not greatly impressed by 14.

    ~ Passing, movement and handling feels sluggish in comparison to 13.
    Particularly galling for me as I like to play the passing game for solid periods.
    ~ Auto-Player selection seems worse than it was in 13.
    Which makes it very difficult to regain possession after having the ball knicked out from under you.
    ~ Team AI anticipation likewise doesn't seem very good.
    Very annoying when you've called for a run and played a through-ball into the box but no-one gets on the end of it.

    I'll go back to it in a bit and hopefully find it's more how I'm trying to play it than how it actually plays...

    I do feel like the touches and the shooting are a lot more realistic. Making first touch crucial, as in real life football. Also, pacey players will have a downfall because of that gigantic touch you get while sprinting xD

    STILL finding it really difficult to get used to the FIFA 14 demo...jeez, something tells me I mightn't be as good in FIFA 14...at the beginning anyway.
