FIFA 17

Recommended Posts

PapOiteE

For those who don't know, FIFA 17 will come with a new engine... Dice's FROSTBITE! I can't wait for the trailer, I expect high quality graphics and tons of new animations.... And portuguese stadiums as well!

A demo will be available in September as usual.

The new engine is awesome news, looking forward to it.

Street Mode sounds good as well, I love the skills.

Would be nice!

I've tried to set something up in FIFA here since 14 I think, someone else can try now :P

:D I can be quite manipulative! 

When it's out I'll start up a big drive.  I'll put a sign up sheet in the canteen and everything.

Player ratings are out and they have caused a shitstorm on twitter. And rightly so. Ronaldo rated higher than Messi. What are you smoking, EA? 

No matter how good the new engine is, this will be the most unrealistic FIFA in many years.:P I'm afraid it's my duty as a Messi fanboy to boycott the game. Will have to check with the union on that.

I think the rating is fair.

Ronaldo is one of the best headers in the world, much better than Messi.

Can't really find a weak point to his game.

I never sign either of them in FUT, they're way too expensive and I get better success with tall and powerful strikers such as Andy Carroll.

Ronaldo is probably the best header in the world. The height he gets is insane. But it's not like Messi is a bad header. At 5'7 he's obviously handicapped, but he has scored some excellent headers.

The weak point to Ronaldo's game is that he can't do much on his own anymore. In Madrid it's all about setting him up. He's maybe the best poacher the world have ever seen, but that's also it. 

Messi does it all; he controls the game, beats opponents all over the pitch, his through balls are insane and while Ronaldo has moved closer and closer to the goal, Messi has gone the opposite way and yet he's still able to almost match Ronaldo's goal stats. 

It's probably no surprise, but for me it's not even close between the two. 

As for in FIFA, with his speed and shooting stats, Ronaldo has always been the player to go with. Used to hate playing online against Real.

For me it's hard to pick between them in-game and IRL, both have different strengths. Agree with what you say about Ron though!

Fortunately in Online Seasons I'm never against Barcelona or Real as my favourite team is never above 4 stars :D

Yeah, maybe I should find me a team that's not 5-stars. Anything to avoid Real and Bayern.:D Never had much luck playing with Barca. Always end up dribbling my way out of the stadium.:lol: First with Messi and then Neymar. Can't have a player with 5 star dribbling in my team. He'll be the only one touching the ball.

Not madly, but my folks are originally from there. I'll check in on their progress on occasion, but apart from Bobby Zamora couldn't really name their best players.

That's cool.

They're probably my favourite team from that league, been hoping they would reach the Premier League in the last few seasons, they got close last season!

I can't wait! 

Back in the ps3 days I had a north american psn account so I could dowload the demo one day earlier. I don't know if this is still possible to do though.

Yeah, it's still possible.

A friend of mine has a New Zealand account for the same purposes.

Any thoughts on this game?

I'm really enjoying it, so many new things to do in FUT (the only game mode I've played so far).

Got my ass kicked several times until I created a decent custom tactic and paired it with a suitable formation, the default was terrible for me. Now I have players making direct runs as soon as I pick up the ball, I'm not too wide without possesion and my CM's aren't totally vacating the centre of the pitch :).

Still haven't built a decent squad, just enough to win matches.

Have been getting to grips with mechanics that finally I seem to approve of from fifa... really like that build up play can be wonderfully patient.

 With FUT I very luckly got jamie vardy in on of my returning player packs sold him for 76,000 invested in a fair few reliable options on pitch, chem styles and squad fitness shit should be good to save for a while.

 Fancy a match anyone?
