[b]OH MAN, OH MAN. ITS BACK.[/b] 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! [img]http://i.imgur.com/dNLC8.png[/img] A [del]new[/del] online game mode in FIFA [del]12[/del]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. [U][B]Teams[/B][/U] 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. [B][U]Points[/U][/B] 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. [B][U]Cup Matches[/U][/B] 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! [B][U]Leaderboards[/U][/B] 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. [img]http://i.imgur.com/duFyu.png[/img] 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.

Who' that striker?
[QUOTE=FreddiRox!;35897941]Who' that striker?[/QUOTE] Zlatan Ibrahimovic ofcourse.
Career Mode is where it's at, 7 point lead in the SPL with Hibs and I've got AC Milan in the Champions League last 16.
Currently 20 points ahead in nPower League 2 with Aldershot Town, got knocked out of the League cup in the second round to Newcastle, however just beat them in the quarter finals of the FA cup.
[IMG]http://s14.directupload.net/images/120510/m3pcmb56.png[/IMG] Currently I wait for TOTY Huntelaar and maybe TOTY Fuchs to complete my other team with TOTY Farfan and others.
[QUOTE=WeekendWarrior;35899014]Career Mode is where it's at, 7 point lead in the SPL with Hibs and I've got AC Milan in the Champions League last 16.[/QUOTE] But the Scottish Premier League is like npower. Champ English league.
Any of you people have it for PC? Up for some games? [editline]10th May 2012[/editline] I'm trying to battle my way through Division 3 atm. Had straight promotions to get there, but currently sitting half way in this division.
Under your name it says you have xbox, why did you get it on PC? Fifa is the only game better on a console then PC
[QUOTE=WeekendWarrior;35899014]Career Mode is where it's at, 7 point lead in the SPL with Hibs and I've got AC Milan in the Champions League last 16.[/QUOTE] SPL is terrible. I just bought Hulk for Chelsea, he's destroying everything.
[QUOTE=FreddiRox!;35905403]But the Scottish Premier League is like npower. Champ English league.[/QUOTE] Championship > SPL What can I say, I always go for a challenge in my career modes.
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.
I never thought anybody would make a Fifa thread. I was going to but i expected lots of hate for it.. Just thought nobody on facepunch would play it to be honest. Anyway's, Here is One of my ultimate team squads (Couldn't be bothered going on the web app) [IMG]http://puu.sh/u8qr[/img]
I expected lots of hate for it, but then again the people hating are going to be sweaty basement dwellers, why hate on something if it doesn't affect you?
[QUOTE=FreddiRox!;35914963]I expected lots of hate for it, but then again the people hating are going to be sweaty basement dwellers, why hate on something if it doesn't affect you?[/QUOTE] I am glad somebody finally made one. I play it nearly every day so its something I can actually post about.
Playing Fifa is sometimes so much rage. Especially when this happens: [IMG]http://www.twoliverpoolfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/FIFA-12-Sweaty-Goal.jpg[/IMG] 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 [Img]http://puu.sh/u8wG[/img] Secondary Squad: Italian National [img]http://puu.sh/u8xo[/img] [editline]11th May 2012[/editline] There are literally No good Italian left Mids. I will probably sell this team

Nice to see a fifa thread, this could be my new home.
oh cool, glad there is a thread for this
I can't play Ultimate Team for shit, I kept buying "used" silver players when my stepfather literally yelled at me: "NOOO what are you doing? You're going to need silver contracts for them!" Unfortunately, it was too late :v: Any newcomer tips for it?
With all these ToTY cards coming out, should I get back into UT or wait till next year... Thinking of working my way up through bronze to gold, hopefully get a Croatian squad.
