  1. The new UI looks good almost looks like Fifa's. Also noticed some stats showing ingame like pass percentage, shots, etc definitely new for PES. Also ball physics look really really good!
    The game looks fantastic graphically and I agree ball physics looks really good. Shooting looks like it has been improved (Neymar goal 2:20, Messi 5:30) but I don't feel 100% confident about that (Suarez 3:02). I really don't like the ballet dancer dribbling (1:43) though, I hope it will not shows up to often.
    Tactically, it looks like there is the same rigidity we have in PES17, with Barca wingers eating the side lines (I am guessing they have touch the side line Advanced tactic on). By the way, does someone told them that the 1st/2nd most famous player in the word, who is playing in their main partner team is not a winger?
    In terms of players positioning, it also looks like a lot to PES2017, with the offensive line of the two teams completely disconnected from the rest of the team when their team is defending. May be full back attitude as been finally improved, as they seems to be pushing higher pitch when their team is attacking (radar on Neymar goal at 2:10 onward), instead of having one of them always staying with the center backs.
    Based on this single video (worth what it worth) the game looks very good and promising but hardly revolutionary in terms of gameplay and in the way fundamentals have been addressed. I am still very impatient to have it in my hands and I really hope it will makes me eat my pessimist words.
    The wingers did not participate in defence. changing them into RMF/LMF may help but hope they did not retreated so sudden as they lose the ball when attacking deep in opposition half

    I am trying not to look too much into this video due to it being a 2 player match. I would love to see someone play against the CPU but we won't see that until Gamescom. Like you stated there may be some advanced tactics on causing a lot of different things to occur but I agree the player position and tactically it does seem similar to Pes17. Of course we won't know for sure until we get some more teams to try.
    The Dortmund v Liverpool game I hear Bhatti say "new net physics" when Henderson scores. The bloke just talks nonsense sometimes they are the same rubbish as last year

    Can't wait till more footage comes in, and of course the beta. In the meantime, here is my E3 analysis on the gameplay. I love the improvements and am blown away with how much has changed from PES 17. They just need to remove the poor positioning code of PES 16 and PEs 17!

    To be honest I'm not very optimistic about Konami fixing this. At least I didn't see any real changes in 2017 after release and it looks like the changes in 2018 so far aren't that big.
    Everything else about the gameplay will probably be fine but poor formations just annoy me because I think positioning would be one of the easiest thing to fix in PES. Maybe it won't be that bad when the game releases and custom tactics will probably fix a lot of the problems.

    I am not very optimistic about this being to our liking as well I just want to see more of a midfield battle. Hopefully custom tactics can fix it but if it is just like last year the CPU using some of those broken Advanced tactics it won't matter much. Deep Defensive line, Swarm the Box seem like they may still be there causing some of these positioning issues.
    If it's another year of relying on adjusting tactics for every team to keep the back lines from jogging backwards and opening up space as soon as an offense player start dribbling in that direction, that's not good.
    I get that the game is built to be played with 5-6 minute halves, but even FIFA has advanced more towards sim than PES in the past few years.
    Not a big soccer fan at all, but still interested in seeing new video on both games. After Matt10 did a little brief break down on the passing (or receiving the ball) mechanics between both games I think last year via twitch, I can't help but zone in on that element.
    Is it me or does the players in PES 18 seem to "stop" "hesitate" for a split micro-second that makes receiving the pass look awkward, all the passes seem to be pin point accurate, almost as if the act of receiving the pass is "trapped in a very small confined box." In other words, "catching it in stride" seems to be off. The other game's player receiving the ball seems to feel and look more realistic, not always pinpoint, seems to have an added inaccuracy look factored into every pass in a good way.
    Firing up the demo of PES17, when I simply used an extremely low powered "through-passing" (even to pass it to the closest teammate), it actually felt and looked much more realistic. It doesn't turn into a traditional through pass, instead the pass still gets to the teammate, but receiving teammate simply needs to make small adjustments to his body position to receive the pass ... if that makes any sense. I just wish I was able to default the CPU to use "through-passing" for all it's passes in PES. To me it would make the game feel and look better.
    Maybe the dev team or some of them cannot understand English since they are from Tokyo? Can someone translate Matt10L video in japanese? Not looking down on them but this problem has been in pes for far too long.
    I heard that matt's video has reached Taya-san but unfortunately he could not understand english
    I will admit this gameplay does simply look better than FIFA...
    but I buy FIFA every year because I only play online usually with friends.
    I will wait until the PES beta to see if the servers are good enough for me and my friends to make the switch

    Some of the guys from Evo did send it to him, and translated in Japanese, the best they could. We'll just have to see. I still feel good about PES 18 overall. Still have some questions about positioning and off-the-ball player movements/attention though.
