    OH MAN, OH MAN. ITS BACK.
    FIFA 13 was released today in Europe for non early access clients. Anyone who's been playing since FIFA 11 got at least 5 packs for their UT and already I have seen complete Spain teams. I guess this calls for a time of FIFA REVAMP in Facepunch!


    A new online game mode in FIFA 12 13 is the Head to Head Seasons mode which acts a lot like the leagues that exist in real football. You're pitted against players of similar skill level and as you progress through games, you are awarded points which determine whether you'll be moving up to a better division, staying in your current one, or perhaps even being relegated to a lower division. You also have the option of playing cup matches. It can get very tough to continually advance through divisions and win such heavily contested games, but a few tips and know-how here will set you along the right path.

    Teams
    You can choose to play as any team in the game, and similarly, you could be pitted against any other team in the game provided that their ratings are near to equal and your opponent's skill level is similar to yours. I personally prefer to stay with Manchester United as they're both my favorite team and a very strong team. I do resort to one of the big three if I really need a win: Barcelona, Real Madrid, or AC Milan. They're undoubtedly the strongest teams to play with, so keep that in mind if you really need the three points.

    Points
    At the beginning of each season in a division, you are given a goal of points you much reach in order to advance to the next division, along with a set amount of points you must surpass in order to not be relegated. You are awarded 3 points for a win, a single point for a draw, and you'll get nothing for a loss. This creates a similar feeling to actually watching a domestic league such as a Premier League in which draws are very much accepted, as long as you're coming away with at least a point.

    Cup Matches
    EA releases cup tournaments every few days, and you have a set window of time to complete that tournament. They have a significant effect on your ranking and give a lot of experience points, not to mention being very fun!

    Leaderboards
    EA have incorporated a leaderboard into pretty much everything online now, allowing you to compare yourself with your friends and the world. It's pretty interesting to look at and might give you a good idea of why you can't get out of Division 9, as that division holds more players than any other one. The competition's pretty tough.


    FIFA Ultimate Team is an add-on to the recent FIFA games and is really popular amongst the majority FIFA players. In the actual add-on, players can purchase a pack of cards with the money in the game or out of game currencies such as Microsoft Points. Each pack contain a set of random players with their positions and formations, you can also acquire other material such as balls, kits and stadiums within the packs you buy. You can play football matches to acquire more coins to buy new players either on the auction house or buy purchasing more packs. You can also earn money by buying players at a bargain price on the auction house and selling them for more - A more effective way (And more costly way) to do this is called price locking where you buy all high demand players and sell them all for 1000 more, this might cost 100s of thousand or even millions, but this can also earn you even more.
    The team Chemistry effects how they play, a team with low chemistry will wonder offside more, out of position and won't receive passes as well. Teams with high chemistry will react well with their team mates and will get into positions to make runs more often. A bronze team with 100 chemistry will give a gold team with 30 chemistry a good run for their money and often beat them! The factors which affect chemistry are position, formation, nationality, league, club and manager
    Ultimate Team has recieved high rating for its creativity, live auctions occur where players outbid eachother on a material item from players to kits. Players can be changed related to real life transfers, like Fernando Torres transfered to Chelsea, he was immediatly changed to Chelsea, these changes can be useful for the chemistry part of the game. Alongside this, every week players who performed well in their respective leagues, FIFA mainly look at the main leagues like the English, French, German etc. FIFA issue IF (In Form) players whos stats are based on their real life performance that week- and are found in packs only in that week, making their prices premium. So if Emile Heskey were to score say 5 goals this week, FIFA would most likely release an IF version as long as there are no players that performed better than him, but of course in that week no-one would.


    Currently we have a Pro Club on XBOX360 run by Rama214. The club is called Facepunch and frankly we just dominate.
    Rama214 as our RS with his impressive speed and finishing
    FPChris as our CAM with his ability to score, even out of the game
    FreddiRox as the LS with his small, slow striker with the ability to hit the cross bar or post everytime!!

    You got FIFA and an Xbox don't be a square, join.


    We need to make a new club for FIFA 13

    The super cool dudes who play FIFA 13 - Xbox 3

    My friend just casually posted "I just got messi in a pack" where over PSN he was more like "EA! EA! FUKC DFUUCIAAUSFU FUCICKKKJ FYES YES YES EA YEAS!!! YES EA DONT FUCK YES MESSI UJFUCNUNJUNUUNB- MOM I JUST GOT MESSI, DAD I JUST GOY FUCK IAMESSSI!" and then his dad told him to come of the Playstation because he was too loud - seriously though, like only 7 people have Messi on PSN, apparently you have more chance winning 1000 in the lottery then getting Messi.

    Playing Fifa is sometimes so much rage. Especially when this happens:



    Or 20 chances 2 goal, the opponent 2 chances 2 goals.

    Just remembered that I sold some players on that serie A team and made it into a Italian national team. So here are some more recent screen-shots of my teams.

    Main Squad: Brazilian National



    Secondary Squad: Italian National



    Edited:

    There are literally No good Italian left Mids. I will probably sell this team

    Hit A or X to lure your player to them, about half way, switch players and run in hitting B or Circle straight away - Its the best 2 on 1 tackling move because if you miss, the enemy player slows down and the player getting lured incepts it; You could also just do what I do when there are open players and rapidly hit LB moving my player to the open men and sort of micro managing my defenders

    Edited:

    Also if you know anyone else playing Fifa tell them about this thread, because it shall be lively one day.

    Does anyone else here do skills? i find them way to addictive i constantly do the roulette, ronaldo chop, mcgeady spin,advanced rainbow and stepovers.

    its pretty pointless though when the opponent can just hold A.

    also if you guys want to mock up an ultimate team squad or it you want to check a players stats head on over to www.futhead.com the website is amazing.

    Awesome website, yeah I don't tend to do skills much but to beat slow strong defenders I always roulette.

    Also 5, 1 point from promotion to division six - Its 2-1 to him at 88 minutes because he scored to extremely lucky bounces from the keeper, then it get serious. Its kick off, I go attacking, sub some finishers on and rape him so its 2-2. Then I try the same tactic again and he just abuses a gap in my defence and slams it again, off the keeper. 2 minutes of injury time left, I run up with Parr and fake shot the keeper and roll it to the bottom corner. the next couple of mintunes consited of pelvic thrusting and dancing - I know its just division 6, but I have never been higher then 3 (I used to play on my friends account who is division 4 or 3 just floating). I'm moving on up - My quest is to get to division 3

    Hah, finally a thread for this.
    Not that I have an Ultimate Team to post at the moment because I sort of sold everybody anticipating everyone going down in price because of all of these TOTYs.

    Have they actually announced which leagues they're going to do TOTYs for? Assuming it'll just be the big ones, La Liga, Serie A and the Bundesliga? Maybe Ligue 1?

    Also when making a team I'll usually use ultimatedb.nl, I just find it a bit simpler to use that futhead, quicker to choose filters etc.

    So yeah I'd agree it's pretty fun.
