I’m sorry, I couldn’t think of anything witty for the title.
I bought Fifa 13 about a week ago. It’s my first Fifa game since I played Fifa on ps2. Couldn’t find a good place to talk about the game and since I’m on this site pretty often, and I couldn’t find a Fifa 13 thread, I figured why the hell not. I’ve always been a casual soccer fan, watching the main tournaments like the World Cup and Euro Cup. I’m starting to get into soccer more so I’m gonna use the game to learn about different leagues and players.
I’m really enjoying the game. I can’t figure out how others feel about it. When I read people complaining about it some complain it’s too slow, others that it’s too fast; some that the defense is too strong, others that it’s too weak. It seems like there’s a lot of people playing though.
I’m focusing on Ultimate team and it’s a blast. Feels like a cross between Magic the Gathering (in terms of buying packs, buying single cards/players, and trying to improve your deck/team) and a loot based game (in terms of wanting to find the next best thing to boost you up). I focused on a bronze team first, made it an English team since most of my players were English. Gonna switch it to and MLS team so I can learn some stuff about MLS. Next I’m gonna make a gold Barclay’s Premier League team so I can learn that league (since matches from that league are always on fox soccer channel). Eventually I’m gonna make my silver team based on the Mexican league, since I get their matches sometimes too on the Spanish sports channels.
Some things I haven’t figured out though (there was no instruction manual with the game, which is becoming an epidemic in video games. Sometimes if they do add a manual it’s more of a pamphlet than a manual).
-Rare players (when their number is white). What makes them rare? I bought a gold rare Swedish BPL player for like 800 gold who’s rating is in the mid to high 70’s early on thinking I would make a killing on him, but he’s not worth jack right now. I somewhat know what to look for in players now, so I looked at his stats to see what makes him rare, and I couldn’t figure it out. None of his attributes are impressive, and his skill and weak foot are 3 stars. Is it simply because he’s well balanced?
I had other questions, but I can’t think of them at the moment. Anyway, hope this thread gets some chatter from other people who are playing the game.
