Well  as we have one for the football manager games I thought I'd open up a thread for the more active football games FIFA and PES and the careers and such we have going on them so feel free to discuss anything FIFA/PES related here


Just please no arguments as to which is better than the other :p


you can even share vids of your best goals if you like

Just started a new career on FIFA 12 as Sunderland player manager. I'm sick of winning everything so it's a harder difficulty.
yeah I tend to tweak the settings up if I end up with a season where I've won everything too. When I have a season where I've not won anything then I tend to turn it back down if I have an inbetween season then I stay where I am. Good fun though

The last career I did on FIFA 13 was with Athletico Madrid. It didn't go so well. Finished mid table after blowing their whole budget by over paying for players. Started a new career with Man Utd about a week ago and it's going much better. Currently 5th or 6th I think with a game in hand. Bought Sanchez , Alves and Alberto Costa in the current window , and I'm planning on offering PSG Rooney along with a bit of wonga for Zlatan.

FUT WC Rant:

This FUT WC is unbelievable....I slide tackle in front of someone so they run into me and give me the ball and apparently that's a foul. He gets a free kick and scores, I literally just turned off my PS4, first time I've rage quit a game of FIFA. I'm so sick of this WC mode, in seasons I have a decent record but on this I've lost more games than I've won. My defense has Kompany, Sokratis, Coentrao and Walker and it is protected in CDM by Denisov and Javi Garcia and apparently I'm conceding 4-5 goals a game! HOW!!?!?! 

I'm fuming, I literally going to unintentionally smash my TV soon, this game is unbelievable, total load of stupidity and completely unfair. I'll have a game like this one earlier where I lost 5-3. I had 11 shots on target and he had 6 on target. How does that add up? It just doesn't. I mean I have Fabregas. Mandzukic, Gotze and Rackatic (however you spell his name) having these shots, surely I should be scoring more than 3 out of 11 if he gets 5 out of 6?

I went undefeated through a group stage on my first attempt and then lost to a 49 chem team 4-1, HOW EA? I've literally never been annoyed by something so insignificant before. I've scored the first two goals of my last 5 games and lost like 3/5 of them. Something doesn't add up, how can I concede 2 90th minute goals? One minute, I'm through to the knockouts and the next I'm out at the group stage....And not to mention the people who watch all the replays...

I mean I am not great at tournament football, but this is a joke. I have a good team but nothing works for me. I can go into half time 3 or 4 nil up and still fear losing. Like earlier, I score a goal in the first 3 minutes, he tries the kick off glitch and it goes right over my keeper and he scores from his own half. It's not fair, he doesn't deserve that just because my keeper came off his line without my permission. I score like 3-4 goals a game and still lose because of some ridiculous goal from 30 yards out or earlier, and own goal where my player lobbed it high in the air towards my goal at a stupidly tight angle, and Akinfeev just stood there and it went in. Like he was near the corner flag, it was a joke, even I laughed at that one it was just so stupid, I wish it was on camera.

Rant over.

I just had the best run in FUT WC yet. 

I figured that every time I lost in the knock outs that the person who beat me was always leaving his defenders back and hitting me on the counter, in other words, parking the bus. So I decided next time, I'd do the same thing. (Through my rage I didn't think about what tactics they were using, I was just mad bro).

Well I won my group, scoring about 11 goals in total over the 3 games. Got to the knock outs, won again convincingly. In the Quarter-finals I won again. I was almost surprised I hadn't gotten knocked out, but Remy and Mandzukic were just to good. Then I won my Semi-Final and got the final.

In the final I came up against an 86 rated, 100 chem team (Mine is 82 rated, 100 chem) and he had +10 attribute cards on every player (A couple of them only had +6). He went 2-0 up, then after half time I pulled it back to 2-2, it went to extra time and with 5 minutes to go, he scored a header with Robben of all people. Couldn't believe it. I did save 2 penalties in that game to keep myself in it. Was a very even game, both had about 11 shots on target, 49/51% possession.

I've now learnt that as long as you have pace, parking the bus on the FUT WC is the best way to win. I'm pretty sure that EA have no idea how to match make though, I should not have had to play him, an 81-83 rated team would have made for a better match up. He did get lucky though, it should have gone to penalties, which I'm confident I could have won. 

Whether it was a one off or not, I'll have to see. Funnily enough that was my 13th tournament, doomed from the start.

Yeah , usually I stop when I get annoyed with the game. I'm not thinking straight and I'm too busy being annoyed that I'm not even playing well or paying attention.

Games are somewhat psychological because like you said, whenever you get annoyed you are so busy finding things to moan about, you don't play well, which makes you angrier. CoD has the same effect as FIFA in that sense. 
I also find sometimes, when I have 3 or 4 awesome matches on CoD, I relax to much and don't do so well. 

I get angry pretty quickly with FIFA, although sometimes it is justified, like when I'd had enough yesterday after a free-kick was given that was never a free kick. He scored from it and I just turned my PS4 off. People get angry with real life games when things like that happen, so that is pretty justifiable IMO.  

I just played another tournament and because of how the group stages work online, you might play, for example, Player 2, Player 3 and Player 4, but then Player 2 might play Player 5, 6 and 1 (1 being me). So earlier, having won 2/3 games in the groups, I went out, when in reality, that is unlikely, especially given my goal difference was about 3. The guy who got all 9 points would have beaten the other two.

Yeah but you feel so stupid afterwards because you realise it's just meaningless. I don't get angry with any other games other than FIFA though.

Just tried again. Guess what ? Quarter finals again. I'm gonna give it one more go and if I don't get it then I'm giving up.

Anyone plays FIFA WC on the Box? I wanna get some matches with nations no-one care about. DR Congo, San Marino, Liechtenstein, an island from the Caribbean, Mongolia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, Tahiti, Palestine.

Let's have fun.

The referees on FIFA 12 are the most bias buttheads I've ever seen. Larsson goes in with a, I'll be honest, rather firm tackle but got the ball first. Ref blows for a free kick, books Larsson and Van Persie of course scores against my goalkeeper.

Then of course, my keeper seemingly has jelly on his gloves (and his legs) whilst their keeper saves every damn shot of mine bar one and their defence blocks every shot. Despite me playing 5-3-2 they can walk through my defence as if they are statues.

I don't know how I haven't broken a controller after a 6-1 defeat.
