I do think this game has got potential, but it's just a shame that so many promises were unfortunately dissolved. I'm not saying they weren't kept, but hardly any of them have been concrete. It seems like every year the FIFA series finds it more and more difficult to test its OWN game.

Jas i said that in the Fifa 13 reviews about the demo,the LB/RB seem so retarted here, like i am trying to pull a offside and for some reason they go back in the pitch and the striker can go ahead in the middle and woth their pace it's impossible to stop....

I bought the Coins Boost. 1000 coins x 15 matches. I completed a tourney game. While watching the match highlights EA disconnected. You got it.....didn't give me my 1000 (or the other coins associated with the match) AND - AND it counted as a match with the players' contracts. Now I have most of my players out of contract.
One thing that I THINK I noticed is that if you have a player on your bench and he does NOT get into the game - I don't' think that he is charged a contract like it used to.

Also -
Who are these guys?

How can anyone have confidence trading on FUT? Coins and players still mysteriously disappear. It's probably time to tell people not to trade until it's sorted.
FIFA12 FUT was not really bad. Why not just use the same servers & set up?

I honestly think that someone needs to 'go public' with this. Go to some news outlet or something. There are so many problems that they say they are fixing and nothing gets resolved.

The Clubs issue, FUT trade pile, now On line seasons are charging people twice for a loss, career mode freezes, players show a face and the name is someone totally different, some people's early access ended prematurely and I'm sure that I've missed something.

I think some of you guys can't tell that I'm not a 'complainer' and I understand that issues are going to happen. But this is pretty ridiculous. So much has happened in such a short time. They say that these items are fixed and addressed. They're not.

You're lucky. I can't even get into FUT! Three days now - so what happens to my daily gifts? I'm not the only one...

When these issues first started I lost 4 managers from my trade pile - some 5k worth, but how do you prove it?

Probably already been mentioned but instant replays and match highlights are VERY jittery.

Another thing that was also the same in FIFA 12 is that during a Career Mode, my game obviously auto saves after every match. However, this creates multiple save game datas on my PS3. Is there any way to stop this?

I tried to buy some managers in auction today (console) but it refused to add them saying there were too many there already. TWO! Two is too many? What a joke, EA should sack everybody who's touched this pile of garbage.

Played a couple of matches last night and noticed a few things that ticked me off.

1- Cutscenes during subs dragged on and couldn't be skipped.

2- Speed is far too fast for my liking.

3- A.I making teams like Liverpool played like Barca on only Professional difficulty. (any team really)

There are others but i've forgotten them!

Jake
28th September 2012, 08:12 PM
Number 1 really got on my nerves as well and I'm disappointed they've took so many cutscenes out without even a toggle or just cutting them out for online play.

Yep, number 1 & 3 are massively annoying.

There is one particular cutscene before a Sub that just has you looking at a player for what feels like 10 minutes. Just ridiculous.

Number 3 has been a problem for a while now. Every team you play against plays like Barcelona and Brazil 1970 combined, and they pass the ball around you for fun. It is infuriating.

Yeah the one of the player walking backwards?

I had to change the sliders last year but i think it made the game too easy and boring. Probably effected my online games too playing against better players..

Toned the sliders down 'slightly' yesterday and won a game against the A.I as MUFC. Think it was that game of the week feature.

Davo614
28th September 2012, 09:44 PM
Yeh thats it, where he is walking backwards. So annoying when you cant skip it. :fail:

Another annoying thing I find is that when its getting towards the end of a game, the CPU players all charge at your defence like a herd of Buffalo and put such an intense pressure on your players to force you into doing an impression of Stoke and just hoofing the ball anywhere. It seems to happen in every game I play, no matter what the score is.

:sas:
And at the same time, your players first touch is anything but! I like the first touch but it's like the Impact engine was last year, way out of proportion to actual events. On Clubs last night the amount of times the ball rocketed away from me with the slightest of first touches was infuriating. It reminds me of the PS2 games where you knew you couldn't keep the ball in if you received the ball near the touchline, your player's animation would guarantee he carried it out.

And stop complaining about the sub cutscenes, have you all forgotten a time when all we saw during a substitution was sky? :whistle:

So with all of the issues with this game, I read that BBC Watchdog has been notified about what's going on.
This is only my 3rd installment of this game. Has there ever been any other game that has had so many issues? I mean, if this was a vehicle (or something of a little more significance than a video game) there would be a 'recall' of that product.

Toned the sliders down 'slightly' yesterday and won a game against the A.I as MUFC. Think it was that game of the week feature.

I used the sliders on this website and noticed a change in gameplay. It felt more slower and I had time to build up my attacks. I played 2 games and lost the 1st game 3-0 and the 2nd game I won 1-0. The sliders do take time to get use to. (Only change I did to the sliders was I didn't use manual and I left the injury settings as 50)

Today I played 2 games on UT today and the pace does seem much faster compared to the slider settings I used against AI and I had a team full of League 1 players lol.

Yet more brain-dead changes by EA. You can lock to a player in Manager mode, but you can't lock the camera to him. Which chimp at EA thought that this was good idea? I mean, how does it make sense to NOT allow this in single player mode, when you can do this in every other mode?

EA have sucked the joy out of this game. There is hardly any point playing any offline mode now. They've removed all the things that kept tugging at you to keep playing: checking out you friends stats, going for that extra game to try & improve your accomplishments to help improve your VP and more.

And what do they add, classified results in Career mode which we ALL sit through till the last result has been read out, don't we?

ahmed_1
30th September 2012, 02:16 PM
Not sure if this is an issue but the game has another Rondon and Arango as Venezuela are not licensed in the game. You may get them in the Free Agents option in Career Mode but they have a different name.

Reminds of PES days when they had duplicate players lol

I've just got to the 2nd round of the FA Cup & decided to check out the next matches. I was disturbed to find a Tournament Tree in the main menu for the 5th round onwards. This is not possible because the FA Cup doesn't work like that. So it implies that EA have not programmed random draws into the cups. Part of the fun of playing the cup is to find out who might get in the draw. But it seems EA have destroyed that, too.

What utter muppets must work at EA, they clearly have no understand of what makes football so exciting & compulsive.

• Display of FIFA Ultimate Team Leaderboards on all FIFA 13 platforms
• Missing EA SPORTS Football Club pre-order credits for users submitting pre-order codes before Oct 2nd

Online services affected: FIFA 13, FIFA Ultimate Team 13, EASFC(FIFA12 & 13).
Thank you for your patience.

What's annoying me is that there's no free kicks for intent. The amount of times I've been slide tackled but jumped over the challenge thus losing the ball, and not getting the free kick is just awful. That's going to be the thing that annoys me most this FIFA for sure.

This infuriates me, it's ridiculous

I've been having a few issues with H2H Season mode non UT. The amount of times I have 'Searched for Opponent' and it just stops and doesn't connect is unbelievable. At times, when I do connect, and I manage to into the arena, it just doesn't go into the game which causes me to restart my Xbox. How frustrating. :fail:

Today I asked @EASPORTSFIFA what exactly does our money pay for when we buy FUT packs. No answer.

Like I said to Jas today. If EA sold 5 million copies of FIFA13 & half play UT. That's 2.5 million UTers. I'm sure all at least pay SOMETHING for packs. If HALF of them pay an average of $30 for FIFA points & don't receive their points, that is $37.5 MILLION dollars that is going somewhere for product not received.

This is the info that needs to get to the Daily Mail and Watchdog and any other media outlet that help consumers. I'm sure that the people that watched Watchdog the other night that have no idea what FIFA13 is think - "aww.....these kids' video game does not work...' when we all know that there is way more to it that that.

During maintenance, we will address the following items:
- Stuck items in the FIFA Ultimate Team watch list and trade pile.
- Duplicate match results in Seasons and Online Friendlies.
- Users being relegated from Division 1 in Seasons with matches remaining in their schedule.

FUT & EA SPORTS Football Club will not be available at the start of maintenance. All other modes will not be available approximately 30 minutes into the maintenance window. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

There's so much wrong that it doesn't even seemed like it's been play tested. Here's some great gaffs from my player career:


My name frequently disappears as in " 's manager says he has great potential."
I transferred to Blackpool yet my pic shows me still in the Sunderland kit.
Shows I'm on 750pw, it's actually 5000pw.
Shows I moved to Blackpool from Carlisle, when I actually moved from Sunderland.
I changed the team number to 32, it still thinks it's 28.
It allows you to play in a cup as many times as you like; you're never cup-tied.
I have full health & stamina, but manager tells me I'm not playing because I'm not fit.
Manager changes formation but doesn't bother to tell you you've moved position.
You get sub'ed then have to play the whole team for the rest of the match.
I even started on the bench! But I didn't get to play, the match was simmed. PES got this right back in 2008, EA!


As for the Rating, how broken is that: I made a block on the line, intercepted the rebound & passed 25 yds to a team-mate on the wing & I lost 2 points. WTF?

Game camera often 'wrong' game after game.

I've just got to the 2nd round of the FA Cup & decided to check out the next matches. I was disturbed to find a Tournament Tree in the main menu for the 5th round onwards. This is not possible because the FA Cup doesn't work like that. So it implies that EA have not programmed random draws into the cups. Part of the fun of playing the cup is to find out who might get in the draw. But it seems EA have destroyed that, too.

What utter muppets must work at EA, they clearly have no understand of what makes football so exciting & compulsive.

I don't know if you've come across playing up to the tournament tree yet Xemik, but I recently found out the tournament tree is not what it seems. The teams are actually drawn at random for each round and the tournament tree rearranges itself.

I'm in the Semi-Finals of the League Cup with Fleetwood Town. On the way I've beat Chelsea, Liverpool, QPR and a few smaller teams. :dance:

I just finished my 1st season with Liverpool, I was so happy, looking forward to the 2nd season, but at the start of the 2nd season after I bid for some players, both my saves of Liverpool CM freezes my PS3 EVERY time I try to load the saved files !!!!

I restarted my PS3 25 times !!! and this is AFTER the update!! :fail: EA is a DISGRACE !!!! I'm sick of it !!! Stayed up late last night trying to fix it, nothing worked so far. :(

Any suggestions, ideas how to fix it?

I have been reading the EA forums, Loads of people have the same problems, this thread has 105 pages and EVERY post is about career mode freezing. Yet EA doesn't care and gives **** all about it

http://forum.ea.com/uk/posts/list/1560/1972241.page

All I found out is if you have a big squad, the game can't handle it during transfer windows and it crashes :(


A whole season of work might go to dust !!!! Bloody hell !!! I ALWAYS save my career modes on 2 files since FIFA 11, BOTH freeze !!!! As you can tell I'm very disappointed and upset about this as I love career mode this year.

Xemik
23rd October 2012, 03:16 PM
The main reasons for Career Mode freeze (before the patch at least) was using your Game Face or Creation Centre stuff. Deleting both might help.

A restart may help, too. I found that if I started F12 after playing other games it usually froze. This still seems to happen on F13, so try playing F13 from a clean machine (ie start from powered-off) & ONLY load & play Fifa.

TBH I find the current save system a nightmare. I accidentally saved my Player Career over my Manager Career, purely because the MC was listed first since it was newest save. Surely it should offer the save you loaded as the first item. Fortunately, I realised straight away; about a nano-second after I pressed Overwrite & was able to load up an auto-save. It was a few days earlier, but better than a season & half!

Thanks for the help, I truly appreciate it! :) I deleted the online squad updates, my game face, creation centre stuff and loading career mode offline and it still freezes. Some say on the EA forums that the game can't handle big squads in transfer windows so might have to release some young players I was planning to develop :(

Xemik
23rd October 2012, 04:06 PM
A bit stupid if that is the case since you have a max size for your squad anyway.

One thing I don't get with Fifa, why do they save Stadium info in your career mode? First thing I do when I get a new Fifa is correct all the English ground names. Takes a little while, but makes a huge difference to the immersive feel when you play at the proper grounds. I did the same this year & started a career mode, but what I didn't know was a squad update overwrote (erm, why?) my changes. So, although I changed some grounds again, they aren't reflected in my career saves, because I did them after I started it. Barmy, if you ask me.

I remember in PES, if you 'corrected' player names/ stadia outside of the ML, these changes were reflected in your save. Obviously, moving players between teams was ignored, but name changes weren't. EA may have nicked ideas from Konami but they seemed to have missed most of the good ones.

When PES got the player camera sorted (IMO in PES 2010), it was brilliant for a player career - on the pitch action. I want to use the Pro cam' but it is so far out. Annoyingly, if you use the GK, the Pro cam' is suddenly much closer in.

Xemik
23rd October 2012, 07:53 PM
...And this is why i haven't started a career mode...
But the biggest thing that made F12 compulsive has been removed - friends' stats. Stupid really when other EA titles realise that trying to beat your friends makes the game more addictive & have built on it. Can you imagine a message popping up to say your friend had just scored a 20yd overhead kick? I'd soon give up if I was trying to beat the World Leaderboards, but seeing your mate has scored from 35yds gives you a more personal challenge to beat.

Another thing they removed in F11(?) was the VP stats. You could see how many VP games you'd played online/offline, what positions, tackles & much more. Ok, I'm an accountant & stat' freak, so maybe it only appealed to the likes of me, but if it's already there why remove it? I never understand how it seems EA start from scratch every year instead of polishing what they had last year.

F13 would have been unbelievable if it had been F12 with the new game elements / Career improvements, with the annoyance removed &, it seems, 09's Clubs.

Rafa_SLB_

This is a known fault from the pre-patch era. Apparently, something to do with unlocking new balls with accomplishments or something. One solution is to set the ball to 'Random' & this seems to avoid the issue.

Personally, I quite like the random option, but I did have problems on F12 when I played in snow. The random option didn't take this into account, so you could end up with a white ball. Haven't played that many in snow on F13, but all the balls where solid colours. Maybe they fixed it, or more likely just a lucky coincidence.

The latest issue I've come across is in PS3 Ultimate Team, when playing single player you will get disconnected from the server after approx 5-10mins into a match for no reason. The only work around is to force the ball out of play or force a cutscene before this time elapses.
I've contacted EA Live Help and was first told to delete all game data and save files, then disable the PS3 media server then to reset my router and the last time to contact my ISP to open ports. None of this has helped and the last one is laughable as my PS3 sits in a DMZ and I've already tested all ports are open on www.canyouseeme.org but your average console gamer would be clueless.

Thanks for the info. I am that (below) average gamer that you mention so I have no idea what the hell you're talking about but I'm learnin' quick. So they want you to delete ALL game data? Is that from F12 also? Or just what you've saved in this installment?

Only just seen this.. Letter EA sent to BBC Watchdog. (http://www.ea.com/uk/football/news/fifa-13-a-letter-to-the-bbc).

It's rather long..


Helen Collins

Producer | Watchdog



Thank you for the opportunity to provide information related to FIFA 13 in the UK and your upcoming segment.

FIFA 13 has been the most successful launch of a sports videogame in history and the biggest videogame launch of 2012 to date. The game sold more than 4.5 million copies in its first week around the world, including more than 1 million copies in the UK alone. Since its launch in late September, it has been the top selling videogame in the UK. Just as important, the game has been universally praised for its quality and innovation, as evidenced by the volume of positive reviews from the leading media and gaming outlets in the UK. For many years, FIFA has been recognised as not only the biggest sports game on the planet, but as the videogame franchise that sets the benchmark for quality, innovation, and connected online services.

The quality of the FIFA game is delivered by one of the most experienced and passionate development teams in the industry. In addition, our game goes through a rigorous, year-long testing process that logs thousands upon thousands of hours of evaluation to ensure a high quality experience at launch and all season long.

Our fans have engaged with FIFA 13 in record numbers. On any given day, more than 1 million online game sessions of FIFA are played by our fans in the UK. But as with any product or online service with such a high level of traffic and popularity, there will be some circumstances where fans experience challenges or issues. And as with any online service, our game is also dependent on many other factors, such as online access and availability at the customer’s location, to ensure the best experience.

We are constantly listening to our fans and asking for their feedback to help us identify issues and assist us in prioritising the improvements to our game. We do this via our social media channels like Facebook and Twitter, our FIFA online forums, and our Customer Experience team. We encourage all our fans to follow us on Twitter or Like our Facebook page so that they get the most up-to-date information. We provide transparent and frequent updates to our fans via these channels, such as this item from last week which provides extensive detail about the improvements and fixes we are delivering for FIFA 13:

http://www.ea.com/soccer/news/fifa-13-title-update-01

In summary, we have already delivered improvements to FIFA 13 to address issues in online connectivity, addressed key issues in game modes like Career Mode and FIFA Ultimate Team, and are actively addressing customer issues related to transactions in the game that have not been executed properly, such as missing coins or FIFA Ultimate Team items. Since we released a major update to the game on October 19, we’ve seen reported game crashes and other issues drop by more than half. :hmm:

We have received reports from our fans of rare occurrences where the ball in the game does not appear. Our team continues to investigate these rare events and we will communicate directly with our fans once we have more information.

Our commitment is to not only address issues and necessary fixes to improve the FIFA experience as quickly and effectively as possible, but deliver new services and new content all season long. The process of improving the game experience for our fans is a constant one, and our team continues to work on additional improvements that we will implement and communicate in the coming days and weeks ahead. We know that we have significantly improved the FIFA experience for our fans in recent days, and we fully expect that to continue as we develop and implement additional improvements and fixes.

We understand that some fans may wonder why we can’t fix all the known issues at once. That’s a fair question and the answer isn’t quite as simple. We are delivering improvements and fixes in such a way to ensure the millions of people playing FIFA 13 do not experience undue or overly lengthy network/server outages, that title updates and other improvements are done to a high quality, and that we’re confident the changes will improve the FIFA 13 experience for everyone.

We look at all enquiries an individual basis and are investigating the two cases you have brought to our attention, and will be in contact with them directly. Once again, thank you for the opportunity to provide this above information, and we welcome Watchdog to come over to the studio in Vancouver to see all the processes and procedures in place to ensure we’re delivering the best game possible for consumers. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any clarification.

To be honest lately the bugs i had, i haven't got it, the problem i and everyone were getting connected to Clubs, we had to go to pratice arena and then try again because it would say it can't get the data from the server or something like that, yesterday i could get in on clubs at any time and i didn't need to do anything or go there and then try again because it would go in at the first time, same with the problem i had and another few in UT when launching it, we had to put the security question and he answer twice every single time we anted to go to UT, around a week ago or a bit more when i went to UT i didn't need it and so far i didn't need it again, i think the patch fixed some issues right away but there were few that were fixed just after a few days or weeks, like the trade pile too, after a few days after the patch when i went to UT for some reason i had a lot of cards in my trade pile that i had sold many time ago, my guess is that the cards that showed up again were the cards that got stuck in the owner's Preference List when they bought it....

Anywho i don't have a single problem at the moment and now finally i can enjoy the game without any problem :)

Thanks for posting this. I wonder what two cases were brought to their attention. I still say that a product release of this magnitude should not have this many issues. I am sure that they would argue that a game OF this magnitude is going to have issues as it's so big. I say why release it then? You can't tell me that they did not anticipate over a million people playing on line at any one time. Did they think that they could handle it? Clearly they can't.

I have had more disconnect issues since the update. Never had one before.

I thought it was just me! I have more issues now than I did before ANY of the patches.

I actually re-read the letter & it made me smile. They said that 'we’ve seen reported game crashes and other issues drop by more than half'. Well, that's just meaningless PR BS, isn't it? Without numbers it doesn't tell us anything. If there were 10m dc before the patch, that makes 5m after, which is still too many.

Also, I just started playing Challenge the Team of the Week and it d/c in the 2nd minute. Of course it uses up a contract. Then I get the message that I disconnected from the server and my DNF modifier was going to be affected. This infuriates me. I really think that this is illegal and there should be a recall.

...that's 33 games and almost 5 contract cards worth stolen. This is fraud.

I tried again just now & got kicked in the 7th min, so that's 4 in a row & 4 contracts gone. I was raging & shouting fraud! My missus told me to stop playing. :fail: What worried me is I bought the 15x1000 coins & wondered if it counted them, but it seems to only count completed games. I supposed EA had to get something right.

I bought some boots as well & tried to get into Clubs to edit my Pro & it took 15 attempts. It seems to take forever coming out of a failed attempt. Is it my imagination, or has F13 got really, really slow at starting anything?

Darn stupid idea from EA putting VPs online, you can;t always get the info from the server. All they had to do was add codes based on the PS3 Id. And how hard would it be to write code that checks of out of parameter Pros?

I missed a bargain rare gold player because the darn game wouldn't let me add it to my watch list. Apparently it was full; it had THREE cards in it!

I signed in today & got a mini-bronze pack. When I accepted it took me to the store, no pack! Before I turned green & ripped my clothes, I sign out & back in to see if I got a gift. This time I got 2500 coins which worked. Odd...

On another issue, would some kind soul help me get my £15k trophy. I already bought a BIN for over £15k, but it was on the Web App, so the dumb game didn't give me the trophy. If there's anyone on here not got that trophy, I'd like to sell a gold player at £15100 BIN to you & buy it back at the same price, so we both get it.

Yeah, right. Now when I go to apply a consumable, I get the dreaded 'Refresh Browser' message. I will have to wait until I get hime to see if I can apply one on the console.

I've been having an issue with UT disconnecting in the first 2-7 mins of a match. I only ever play OFFLINE UT tournaments, so I contacted EA to ask them what they're going to do about all the lost contracts. This is their latest reply after I sent them a Trace on my 'net connection.


I received your e-mail and reviewed the UO trace provided by you. I have checked the UO trace report and confirmed that that ping rate and packet loss both are there in your connection. If ping rate exceeds 100 ms, it usually signifies that the host you are testing is either receiving more traffic than it can effectively handle, or is having some type of technical issue.

A high ping will cause your client to not be able to communicate fast enough with the server for the game to maintain fluid motion. To fix this issue, please perform below given steps:

Bypass router -

1. Disconnect the ethernet or LAN cable from the back of the router.
2. Unplug their modem's power.
3. Turn off the computer or console.
4. Plug the ethernet or LAN cable directly into the computer or console.
5. Turn the modem back on.
6,.When lights on the front of the modem begin flashing again, turn the computer or console back on and test the connection.

Hopefully it will fix the problem.

I turn off my router every night, so their advise is pointless. 'Buck passing' springs to mind. This is my reply:


What does my router settings have to do with UT disconnecting in an OFFLINE game? I can update my team, make bids, trade without ANY issue.

I only ever play OFFLINE UT tournaments & the game always disconnects in the first 2 to 7 mins. If I get past the 7min mark, the game NEVER disconnects.

And you STILL haven't addressed the issue of 11+ contracts lost on the 11 players & manager.

The Other Leo
26th November 2012, 10:54 AM
I disconnect my router right BEFORE I turn my console on. This gives me an 'open' connection. (I wish I woulda known that last year. )
I got disconnected last night in the first five minutes. When I started, my connection was 'open'. When I started back up, it was 'moderate'.
As for the contracts, they will always give the excuse that they give you, therefore it's your fault.

Yeah, a cop-out in other words. Considering how many people have this issue, it's seems unlikely that it is our fault. No other game kicks me off, I mean literally NONE. So it has to be an issue with their servers, doesn't it?

FROM EA:
As you may know, there have been recent trade pile and auction house complications in FIFA 13: Ultimate Team. While we work to resolve the issue we've temporarily disabled FIFA 13: Ultimate Team. This is to ensure that more users do not become affected and an optimal experience can be sustained in the future. FUT13 online gameplay, trading, store purchasing, the Web App, and the mobile companion app will be unavailable during this time.

We'll keep you updated as soon as we have additional information throughout the coming days. Other FIFA 13 online game modes will not be affected.

Thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience.

This is pretty much how PES went when it moved to PS3. The game was utter tripe, but loyal fans like me kept believing the hype from Konami; next time, they said. PES 2010 was the last straw for me, so sick of the rubbish they churned out. Defected to F10 & never looked back, till now. Konami believed their success on PS2 would keep fans loyal, but you can only stretch that trust so far. If EA continue to be as complacent as I think they are, they will lose fans.

However, their fan base is very much larger than Konami's. Where 1m defecting from PES would hurt Konami, EA probably wouldn't notice much less care if they lost 1m fans.

Could happen I suppose, especially if one match is rescheduled, but think yourself lucky. I won the FA Cup with Blackpool, so now I play League or League Cup on Tuesday, Europa Thursday & League Saturday. That's happened for 4 of the 5 matches I've played in Europa so far.

It seems like they want to ensure that all the teams have played the same number of games every week. So you won't get some teams playing 3 games less cos of the CL, say. Personally, I think it makes the season more interesting if there are differences in games played.

I restarted my console, seems to be that is fine now. Is one of those random glitches that this generation of consoles has...
For me, turning on a old pc filled with virus is faster than starting a game in the Play Station or the Xbox

This should not still be happening. I get that message sometimes too. I shut down then restart and it's usually fine.

I get that message very regularly. Not sure what else there is to do other than re-download the pass every time I turn the playstation on

Not to mention that the web app has been down for over 3 hours now.

I had this last night, I just pull the ethernet cable and then after plugging it back in sign in to the EA servers and it fixes it. Every time EA release another online game the servers seem to take a hit. I don't know how they set their servers up but I wonder if they allocated some of the capacity to accommodate the launch of Tiger Woods?

when your GK charges out without you pressing Triangle/Y.

i still can't work out how to defend against the CPU, everytime i go in to tackle the player lunges so far that its easy to go around. Yet the CPU times every tackle to perfection, and allows no room for space to turn. i don't even want to press the tackle button anymore

Just hold LT/L2 to stand your ground / manual contain. This faces your defender up against the attacker. Back off and then run into them to take the ball when the time feels right to.

That's how I defend and seems to work best now since it went all tactical, if you're like me and don't like to contain like the game wants people to now.

I've had similar issues lately. Mine seems to be more that when I lunge to take the ball - another player lunges. It's like it auto switches at the wrong time. I am tempted to just take the auto switch (air balls) off.

See i've always tried to use the L2 jockey, but i cant get close enough, or turn quick enough when the CPU turns, i find its great for shepherding someone down a line or away from goal, but someone twisty will give me right troubles. I'll try charging into them lol!

Yeah, the charge is the way to go. :D

I remember when it first switched to tactical defending last year on 12. I didn't have a clue what to do really and ended up getting the ball back off the CPU a few times by just running into their players. Turns out it's the best thing to do. :ha:

Leo - Never tried it before with Air Balls switching turned off. I'm quite interested to see how it plays like that.
