    Just getting this thread started for the year. SteveOS, please move or migrate as necessary.
    Just want to say this build is leaps and bounds better than both FIFA 18 and even the demo. Slow speed is actually slow this year. The ball size is fixed. Many more face scans. Disappointed with the lack of real managers in CM, but the gameplay is absolutely fantastic. I've seen things I could never have imagined would appear in a modern FIFA game. Even just scored off a header from a corner that went right by the keeper's punch.
    Fouls are more frequent but still not where they should be. That's got to be my only real complaint so far. Even the catalogue on PC is full of boots and balls. Hopefully it will be updated throughout the year as consoles usually are.
    Overall, very impressed.

    Did you play the beta? If so, have you seen much improvement since then?
    Playing during clear daytime the shadow positioning of the stadium remains constant no matter the time of the day unlike in fifa 18. Playing at 6pm the sun still shines at the center of the pitch. So much for realism.

    I'd be curious to hear what the difficulty level is like. Other early impressions are that it's as easy as ever, even on Ultimate difficulty.
    I enjoyed the beta but not so much the demo. How do you think it's leaps and bounds better?

    I did not play the beta. I never seem to be invited by the EA Overlords.
    Essentially, I find the gameplay to be much more varied than FIFA 18. There isn't a feeling of "ping pong" like there was from the off in FIFA 18. I can actually sustain a build up and press and then transition into either defense or frontline pressure. There are actual phases to the game.
    I'd also like to mention that many legacy problems are fixed. The tactics screen actually shows you what you are implementing in terms of the tactics you choose and many many things in terms of UI have just been cleaned up and polished. The instructions screen and options are more varied than in 18.
    In regards to the question of difficulty, yes it seems to be as easy as the game has always been. I have only tried World Class difficulty, though. Manual through balls and shots still have some level of assistance I believe also.
    There is much more an element of physicality perhaps relating to RPM. A run or a sprint actually feel like a run or a sprint if that makes sense.
    Still disappointed after another preseason game with the amount of fouls. They are there, but something that's bothered me the last two or three years is that EA have built this wonderful revamped free kick system, yet I never get the chance to use it direct on goal. Hoping it's just my play style and it will become easier to draw fouls.

    WC seems pretty easy granted I’m playing on all semi assisted settings right now.
    In my test CM for the OS review I’d drop in and play a few matchups vs a variety of clubs (City, United, some small Europa league squads) and I don’t think I lost yet. Definitely gave up some goals but I was able to score a decent amount of goals. I definitely noticed the difference in quality between clubs and City pressed me all match while United sat back more.
    Tactics are AWESOME but I don’t know how accurate EA has set them up for all of the clubs. Kinda hard to judge too because a lot of clubs have new managers/systems.
    FWIW I didn’t play the demo (was out of town) so I don’t have anything to compare it too.

    I already purchased the game and it's been pre-loaded on my Xbox One X. If I am a member of EA Access will I just be able to start the game up or do I need to do something in EA access to access the 10 hours of play time?

    I don't know if there is HDR on the console versions, but it doesn't appear to be on PC.
    Also, the volume seems low.

    Ya I’m not getting hdr on pc either but I will say on ultra settings the graphics are a big jump from 18 which was already stellar.
    I know this gets said a lot but this is the best looking sports game I’ve ever seen. It’s crazy good.
    Game is fantastic.
    I really didnt like the demo. Thought it was too fast and too ping pong passing.
    Played my first game with MLS teams and the pace of the game was perfect.
    Second game was EPL teams and it played much much faster. But not as fast as the demo.
    Graphically it looks amazing. Super clean.
    Really enjoying it. I will now probably pick it up at release.
    MC smoked m lastnight. The crowd boo’d me and MC supporters erupted and chanted Aguero after an amazing goal. Prior to that I played in a pre season tourney and could def tell a difference between teams, play styles, overall of players. I’ve been just using default sliders until some are posted. Game feels really fast is my only complaint. I’m using slow.

    Ya man I thought this as well.

    I was asking it as a question but I’m glad that it is. Thanks that’s great news!!

    From what I have seen, the videos of the release version looks really good. The players seem fluid and it just seems to flow better. The presentation looks top notch.
    It really looks good. I can't wait to play it.
    I imagine the Serie A presentation will be added in October, similar to how they added Bundesliga and updated EPL broadcast packages post launch in previous years.
    Not used to the new announcers yet. Game seems fluid and I like how the ball doesn't really stick to the feet this year. Not sure if that's the best terminology but I've been seeing a lot more bouncy balls and the first flick of the stick when receiving a pass sends can send the ball in weird directions.
    Playing on PC.
    Only weird thing is my colors seem to be way bright and off.

    Colours are definitely over saturated or something. I know they were going for a neon type feel with everything but it’s like the 1980s threw up all over this game.
    Other issue I’m having is some of the settings aren’t saving. I have to switch the controls to alternate every time I boot up the game. Also the trainer won’t stay on “hide” I have to change that every boot up as well.

    Hmmm. Strange. I have the opposite problem. Brighter colors seem darker and faded. Particularly red kits like Liverpool. I’m on Xbox One X with a 4K display.

    For some reason I always have that problem (settings not saving) when FIFA first launches.

    Game looks gorgeous on PC.



    I like how the ball is more tangible this year. Have to be more careful with your long passes because the ball bounces way more and a bit further then it did in the past. Love the physics of 1 on 1 player interaction when it comes to fighting for the ball. So far so good I like the game.
    What about defenders freezing for a second or 2 on long balls and high through balls ?
    What about second chance points where the keepers always saves it and sends it towards an attacker for an easy goal ?
    What about the overpowered headers for attackers ? Fifa 18 the attacker always gets the upper hand in air duels ?
    Defense is weaker than offense ,in fifa 18 the offense is more overpowered than defense whereas attackers always got the step on defenders which makes you feel your defense is non existant...i wish for once we get a healthy balance between the 2.
    Referees are horrible in 18 i wish the referees blow their whistle better because its a mess in 18 ...tackle a attacket going 1 on 1 at the keeper may result in a warning or yellow card if your lucky.
    When playing online friendlies i hope they give you more then a minute because setting up your team in 59 seconds is a headache ,on top of that take away the draws in online friendlies they are useless i hear they gave us the option to pick extra time after a draw thats a good thing but i dont want draws to register ,it should be win or lose because a draw is useless.
    So many things to work on in that 12 month span but fifa disappoints
    Frythatchicken
    why can't you play realistic minutes of half in this game? why isn't that an option?

    You mean like a full 90 minutes, I don't think that is an option in any footy game.
    Been playing off and on since trail release and liking it more and more.
    I'm not a hardcode soccer guy but more a casual player so I like some arcade mixed in w/ sim.
    Maybe it's me but I keep noticing this year when I play MLS vs say EPL, the pace of the game is noticable. MLS plays much more slower. For example, I played SEA/POR game and the players were very slow when moving. But when I play EPL CHL/ARS it was a very fast paced game.
    I like the addition of UEFA also but the way EA made it, it's just feels like another mode in the game. Whereas when PES had it, they made it really feel much more of a big deal / super important tourney feeling.
    I haven't touched all the modes yet, but really enjoying Play now and UEFA tourney.
    And another thing I noticed is Professional difficulty level is much more easier this year imo. I've always had a hard time w/ it but with some of the better teams, I am doing really well on Professional.

    Well I think part of the difference you’re seeing between MLS and EPL could be the tactics, but also the talent gap between the leagues. When I play MLS games, yes they feel slower. But they feel that way because the players for the most part, are slower. They also tend to have poorer first touches and passing ratings, so the ball tends to be slower going on passes.
    On PC.
    The tackling is more animation-based and less smooth compared to FIFA 18. Sometimes, the defender/attacker won't really interact and they'll just stand still. I understand this is more "physical" but dispossessing dribblers can sometimes feel a bit awkward. Mostly alright though.

    In career mode, you can no longer change the time of the day when starting match. Sad.

    I'll never understand why EA takes out such a useful option
    In Pes it took 15 years to have this nice option
    And now EA suddenly takes it off
    so, how does the stamina fatigue impacts running if on low? PES2019 stamina's system and it's outcome looks like this :

    Where can you do this in career mode, I'm missing it

    He doesn't know what he is talking about. You can't this year for some reason. Might have to do with Champions League licensing.

    I can only assume it's because of the Champion's League license and those games always needing to be night games.
    I only play career mode in FIFA and always play in PC at 4K all settings on ultra.
    I switched from PC to the pro with 18 as the PC game was dreadful.
    I am not overly impressed with 19 on PC. Oh yes it looks stunning and it's a big improvement on 18. But that's not saying much as 18 was so bad on PC.
    So what's wrong with 19 on PC?
    First of all I'm playing on the new ultimate mode.
    There are very peculiar player animations when shooting. The mechanics aren't working correctly. Therefore when he shoots his foot shape is wrong and the whole shooting motion is wrong. This isn't in all shooting positions.
    Shooting itself is weird. It s not fluid.
    For the first time ever, goalies are poor. When at distance and whacking it, they always push it out. That would never happen before.
    The game isn't comfortable to play. The inconsistencies make it feel nervous and not released. Maybe that's the ultimate level. But I don't like it.
    Too many times I went two down within five minutes of the start and came back to draw.
    All teams play in exactly the same way.
    The scripting makes the cpu go crazy for scoring at the start and the. It gives up for a while. Football isn't like that.
    There's a problem with player fatigue. Some players simply never get to 100%
    Scripting took care of my two best signing in the close season. Both got injured when training. Surprise surprise on PC with ea obsession with rigging the game.
    It's almost impossible to get loan players. I had 50 players refuse to come. More ea scripting.
    Overall the game is still a mess on pc
    Overall, it's better than 19 bit much worse than 18 on the pro.
    On Friday it get the ps4 version. I'm not wasting months the trying to get the game right again.
    I'd say that PC gamers are getting a rough deal with FIFA. Yes it's better graphics but the gameplay is broken again as in 18. Ea won't fix that. They never listen to customers hence the vitriol against them. It seems they try hard with the ps4 but can't be bothered to make a decent game anymore on PC.
    Many of the games were excellent but the game just doesn't feel right. The flow isn't there due to many problems. They won't get fixed.
    A pity and a waste of £50 on Friday. Maybe that's what ea are really after.

    I change the time if day because the stadiums shadows can make the game impossible at 3pm and sunny.
    Worst are Newcastle, Bolton and Wembley. They are impossible at 3pm in sun.
    Now the time is fixed so I'll switch to rain

    How are most of these things you listed PC specific? These sound like gameplay, and game mode issues, that will be on console or PC. I just fail to see how it's a PC version issue.
    That said, this is the first year I have played PC AND Xbox thanks to Access Premier, and I am enjoying it on both PC and Xbox.
    Cannot get these graphical settings right on PC. May end up getting it on PS4. Has anyone played mlb the show? You know how when you upload a video to YouTube and you had HDR on the colors are all wacky and red is so bright it almost looks pink and all skin tones look redish? That's how the entire game is looking and playing for me.

    what's w/ the lack of impressions? I thought this thread would blow up since the game came out today officially.
    Anyway I played some online today. Not really my thing but really enjoyed how you could push your opponent or vice versa off the ball. Made trying to find that cheap score really hard. I didnt really notice this offline but I'm happy it's there. It's when you are defending and hit the B button to sort of slow down your defender. In the past it was there but this year it really works well.

    Game is only out for people that paid more for it, with subscriptions or ultimate editions. The game is only officially out for the majority of people (the ones who paid the normal and fair price of $60) in 3 days.
    Computer player catch up is pretty bad this year. No matter how beat they are they always catch me. My fastest player will burn the last line of defense and I'll play a beautiful pass to him and no matter how big his lead he's always caught.

    Pace is different this year but effective in the ways it should be. Everything else being equal, a faster player will always beat a slower player when off the ball. And on the ball, if you use the proper first touch and knock ons, fast players do just fine staying ahead of defenders.
    Give it time. It takes some getting used to but pace is wonderfully balanced this year - not the easy exploit of days past but still effective as it is in real life, as long as it's used correctly.

    I enjoyed the demo and want to buy now, but I worry about the devs patching this game to death like they did last year. Anyone else hear anything about the devs sticking with this like the 2K devs have said about their game?
    Yeah I love the pace this year and sprinting with the ball is really like PES where you have to push the ball out in front with the proper timing. If I get it wrong and the defender catches up I'll try to step in front of them and cut them off.
    A lot of times people claim to get caught from behind but usually the defender has a slight head start or there's momentum/inertia in play. Very rarely will you see a straight foot race where both players start at the same time and from the same point.
    So I've able to pay beyond my 10 hour trial. But last night I had a couple of hang-ups. When I got to 9/1/18 (end of transfer window), the screen was blank except the "press right stick" option that takes you to items you can unlock or gift. I tried everything I could think of, but ended up exiting and reverting to my last save. Then, I played my next game and around the 76th minute, I go to pack my final sub. The game locks on the team options. I can't exit those options and go back to the game.
    I hope it's just some glitch with my free trail and won't bleed over to the game..

    The devs made it public this past summer that they f'ed up last year. They've committed to being more cautious with changes to gameplay. We shall see...

    How do you push the ball out?

    Right stick. When sprinting with plenty of space in front of you, you'll want to do double knock-ons (two movements with the right stick). If you don't use these, you will get caught.

    Exactly. And even with all the people complaining about a catch up bug or whatever you want to call it, I've yet to see one single video posted showing the issue.

    (especially the one with Messi with Pace set to 1 is a complete joke)

    Is there any of them running without the ball, it seems like there isn't a stat for dribbling speed. I remember PES use to have a dribbling speed stat back in the day.

    normally i would say it's a formula of speed minus xx% with ball minus x% of ballhandling (?). idk, i'm not the one making soccer-games over a decade now :rolleyes:
    if you run real fast with no opponent in front of you, usually you forward the ball/push the ball very far forward and run,run,run... in Fifa it's the Right-Stick to the direction you are running to.
