  1. I'll probably get '19 this year so BAP/Clubs would certainly be on my agenda, time zones permitting. You're all on the PS4 right? I haven't played since the 360 days...

    Far Cry 5

    There's an official Ubisoft livestream of the first part of the game on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/242001912 Spoiler warning, of course.
  3. Just for my own personal sanity, how did you manage to lose work from your source control app? Aside from the workflow benefits of using Git the main reason I bother is to guarantee that no matter how careless I am I'll never be able to lose anything... Or so I thought.
  4. Sadly out. I haven't been around the forum for a while so hadn't heard about the switch to PS4. I'm surprised we're doing this so soon to be honest, even if I do get the console in the next month or two I wasn't planning on giving any more money to EA for another copy of this year's FIFA...
  5. It's our last game of the season at 6-a-side tonight, but I should be able to get home in time to be online before 10.
  6. I'm back, huzzah! Has the game been fixed yet, or do I still have to wipe off half my friends list to be able to play properly?
  7. I think CAM is going to be my preferred role on this game, so looks good to me! Looking forward to seeing Tyler's silky skills. [edit] Going on my experience with this game so far I haven't really thought much of the 4-2-3-1, but that's mainly just from playing as the lone striker with a load of any's offering next to no support. It'll probably be more effective if we've got most of the team online I guess.
  8. Reporting in, sir. Just a heads up though, it's likely that I'll miss next week's games as I'm heading off to the airport around midnight that Thursday, but if I'm not rushing around at the last minute then hopefully I can still make it online. I'll definitely miss the next two Thursdays after that though, unfortunately
  9. What I'd like to know is if there is anyone who already had a relatively small friends list to begin with who has also been suffering from crashes. It's a good sign that no one like that has already spoken up since this rumour about culling friends started doing the rounds, but then again, I guess most of the people on here would probably have 60+ friends on their list anyway. I don't know if it would be possible to pull from Mike's data (can't remember what specific questions were asked), but I'd like to see the number of crashes people were getting before friend culling to the number of crashes they got afterwards. The problem is I've gone several days without crashing at a time, but then I might get 3 of them in an hour. They tend to come in bursts for me, rather than being completely random.
  10. That scouting system sounds hilarious. In 5 seconds I've thought up a pretty simple solution, they'd just have to tag each player attribute with a figure which indicates with how much certainty it can be immediately observed - and then the scouts would never fall out of that range, no matter how incompetent they may be. ie. Height would have a 0% uncertainty range, Acceleration and Sprint Speed might be +/-5% since you can be pretty sure if a player looks fast he is actually fast. Strength and Shot Power might be up to +/-10% off... and so on, where the more subjective traits can have a much wider uncertainty level. You can start a career with customised squad files if that's how you'd like it.
  11. Player stamina is something which has needed a re-design for far too long. Fixing that would also have the side effect of fixing a load of other gameplay issues, like the tireless wingers who can chase down a never-ending stream of chipped through balls for 90 minutes without breaking sweat.
  12. I unlocked the bonus stamina trait about 5 times last night. I still don't have it.
  13. I should be back home and online by 10 tonight, catch you all laters.
  14. The captain can choose which kit they want to use (Home/Away/Alternate/Classic/etc.) from the Y-menu screen, where you can also select the other match search settings. However - and I'm not sure whether this applies to clubs, but it's definitely in 1v1 - the opposition kit you see on your screen isn't necessarily the same as the one chosen (and seen) by the opponent on their screen. If FIFA detects a kit clash (with whatever horribly designed algorithm they seem to use) then the game will automatically change their colours on your screen to try and avoid it, while still leaving the opposition seeing the kit they actually chose and swapping ours on their screens. If that makes sense.
  15. I have to admit, I think the eureka moment arrived... Aside from the endless crashing I've been enjoying the game much more of late. Just like the tactical defending was a couple of iterations ago, the new realistic movement mechanics took a long time getting used to, but now that I have it feels much nicer to play than the previous games. Note: This may or may not be due to me taking more advantage of the overpowered chipped through balls and headers, so I reserve my right to claim the game is shit again once they change all that in the patch and I go back to endlessly losing game after game.
  16. Excellent games again tonight, despite having to suffer with the freezes and FIFA in all its wisdom deciding to pick all white vs. all white kits. Still, two titles in the bag, let's try and keep this form going into the BAP league.
  17. How about splashing out on one of the classic kits? This 1884 Man City shirt would be good for something nice and simple: Though I do quite like this Borussia Mönchengladbach number, and continuing the City theme it also includes a splash of our RPL City colours:
  18. Whether it's much use or not I don't know, but now that we're using clubs you can also see the match history and player ratings for each game online: eg. http://www.eafootballworld.com/en_GB/clubs/FFA14XBX/250957/match-results
  19. I should be around for a few games later this evening.
  20. Some lovely passing and movement going off in those games tonight, let's hope we can build on it once we get everyone else together. They were probably my most enjoyable games on FIFA 14 to date.
  21. That's what I've been saying too, the attacking side of the game isn't overpowered*, it's just the complete lack of desire in defence to be first to the ball. They look disinterested and seem to have no sense of danger, and that's not just for crosses into the box. *Besides perhaps chipped through balls.
