Just picked it up yesterday, I'm something like 1-0-9 so far, firmly in the 10th division, but improving.
What a sick game. It feels much more open this time, the players do not have the sticky feet any longer and the first touches are much more realistic.
Who's kicking it around?
Btw, Modric is an 86 and Xabi Alonso an 87, Ronaldo is a 92. I haven't played with anyone but Real.
I think I'm at the cusp of breaking into Div 9.
My friend says he got to Div 5 without losing on Fifa 12, is that even possible? This **** is hard. But then again I'm a CoD head, haven't played Fifa since 08.
I dropped the FIFA series when EA decided to screw all PC users by excluding keyboard controls, which means the last FIFA I played was 11. Of course, I do have an Xbox and I could easily purchase an X version of the game, but since EA wants me to pay additional €20 for being a console owner I decided to tell them to GTFO.
You should get it so we can play!!!
My cousin told me that a game is about 100$ in Switzerland, is this the case for you?
All games are 60$ here, so we're lucky.
Also, to be honest with you, I think FIFA on PC was dead in the water, man. For me, it's crazy to play FIFA with a keyboard. But I ditched PC gaming in the early 2000s, so I have not looked back. It just looks like a dead market from where I am standing.
Well, concerning sports games it is probably a dead market, totally agreed, but there are enough cRPG, RTS and HnS games that are playable only on PC. ;)
When I first switched from PC to console FPS games, it was difficult to adjust. PC with mouse and keyboard feels much more natural, but it is not a problem for me anymore, I do not think about it now.
The thing about consoles is that every system is the same, so the playing field is level, where with PC gaming, if some one will have more resources than you to set up a beast-daddy machine, he will have the technical advantage. It is not so level.
And I just earned promotion to Division 9 yesterday. One game left, I can win the division title if I win the last game!! Getting better. The skill games help a lot.
FIFA is ****ing awful this year bro seriously. The realism they added is great except it's only about 50% finished so with the added realism comes a bunch of added bull****.
EA Sports are one of the worst gaming companies out there, they already had to drop their NBA franchise of 10+ years because 2ksports do a way better job.
If only 2k made a football game, FIFA might actually get better. Instead it gets steadily worse year by year as they add new features that don't work properly.
I agree, I bought Fifa 13 and returned it for 2k13. 2k13 has a lot of glitches, but they offer too many in-depth features plus more animations and just overall a more fun game to get into, better game modes. EA Sports kinda limit game modes, too arcadey for my taste (NBA Live is an example)

You're buggin, smokes!
Fifa 13 is where it's at!!
I agree that EA generally sucks balls, but FIFA is one of their winning franchises.
Live sucked, absolutely, but PES was not able to dent the FIFA franchise.
They do good things.
It's all EA but I reckon totally different teams work on each sport and the soccer team does a hell of a job.
Fifa is deep, it has a deep multiplayer, has a deep single player, and it has a great gameplay experience. No complaints here.
Glad you enjoy it bro but the multiplayer is far from deep. Most goals are scored from some stupid sh*t like you tackle them 3 times in a row and the ball bounces back to them until they have an open shot on goal.
First touch system does not work, ball goes off completely randomly half the time.
My record online is something like 50 wins 10 losses and I'm in division 1, but I've shelved the game this year. Unless they put out a patch to fix the broken stuff it's too boring and predictable.
Smokes, please GTFO AND STFU!
You are not D1 bro, last I checked there are like 200 people in D1!!!!!! In the world!!
Dude if you're D1 and you hate the game, that's a statistical anomaly or you are dishonest!!! I don't think you're dishonest, but I don't think you're d1!!!
Yo, **** is tough, smokes. I'm d10 again and I'm something like 15-6-88 right now, can't win for **** dude!!
Then again, maybe I'm just garbage at anything other than first person shooters, I don't know.
Still, the first touch, bouncing off the guy, that's the point!! In real life the ball is not magnetized to your feet!!! You can have sloppy first touches!! And this is the first FIFA that I have seen sloppy first touches in!!! So it's great.
The first touch thing would be good if it worked like it should.

It's too random bro. It simply doesn't work.
Actually most of the people who play this game a fair amount agree sh*t just ain't right this year. If you spend any time on the FIFA 13 forums you'll see just that. Enormous threads filled with complaints about the game.
They definitely got all the right elements in this years game, they just need to balance those elements so the game plays like it should.
