    I like FUT because it is the idea of building a team and trying to climb through the Leagues. But there comes a point where you come up against the same teams playing the same way.

    Half the problem is that there is not much variety in the gameplay to allow for different styles. It is a bit frantic and fast-paced, meaning people close you down quickly and attack you quickly. Very rarely do you see proper build-up play. It's a little like the Premier League in that sense. FIFA has all the marketing money, all the gloss and all the hype - but most people recognise there is something missing.

    I've had a few thoughts on how to do it (improve FUT), but it would obviously be ridiculously difficult to manage and I'm sure FIFA will have thought of it already.
    It should be much, much harder to build a team. Perhaps they could limit the amount of top players in the mode, making trading a more meaningful exercise. You could maybe offset that by introducing 'fake' players to boost the numbers.
    What I'm really keen to see is an online career mode, essentially.

    Drop in matches have been weird recently. Every few games I end up as a player that's not mine. Also i usually try to play on LW but it puts me as a striker every time.

    Yeah you are right - the perfect football game would have an online career mode, straight up. When that day comes I reckon I will bin every other game I own :celt_2:

    But the bit I bolded? Again, rectified in Seasons mode playing as Celtic. You come up against 3 - 4 star teams which may have some pacy players here and there, but in general the gameplay is slower and a bit more considered.

    Compare this to the sweaty pace-abuse infused through the majority of FUT teams. Again, look at everyone on here chasing the same guy - Doumbia. And why? Pace.

    Your bit about the EPL is spot on. Driven by greed and the fact you can buy it all right now if you want to pay real hard cash, overlayed by a huge marketing machine that plays on all of this desperation to succeed at all costs.

    In seasons you play as similarly rated team and have at it. Skills pay the bills in Seasons. It's scarier than FUT cause you can't rely on buying your way to success.

    That's exactly it. You see the guys who (already) have the top, top players in their side. Either they spent night and day playing games and earning coins since the game came out, or they took the short-cut and opened their wallets. A lot of people do the latter. Buying the best players to fit into their homogeneous, characterless teams.

    In a way, you have to laugh at how closely FUT resembles the EPL. Perhaps soon we'll see players borrowing money from EA to get those star players they can't quite afford, all in the name of chasing a dream they'll inevitably miss out on and collapse under the weight of debt they accumulated in trying :56:

    For me (and many others), trying to build a team based on your preferred style and the resources available is an interesting challenge. For so many, though, coming up against the pace machines poses the "if you can't beat them..." dilemma.

    Career Mode is pretty realistic this year and the stadiums look class! Cant help thinking how good Celtic Park would be in Fifa on Champions League games the stadium jumping. Its a joke that they have stadiums like Turf Moor and no Celtic Park
