Won a couple today along with another couple of draws. The game is simply awesome when playing against like minded players. Don't get me wrong, you still get the full pass assist ping pongers but you seem better equipped to deal with them this year, plus the pace of the game allows for more tactical defending it feels. Played as both teams and definitely prefer France of the two.
The connections have been rock solid for me so far and there has been no input lag that I always felt I suffered with on PES 2017 (in myClub, not so much vs friends online).. Keepers have made some lovely saves.. People have been complaining about rocket shots but I have only pulled them off with Pogba and Griezzman, two players I feel should be able to strike a ball well. The other thing I really like is how it feels like a players balance and body position really influences how good a pass ends up being, trying to pass off balance at an awkward angle now has a very good chance of going awry unless with a truly gifted player, reverse passes at the back are a terrible idea with some of the defenders!
Anyways, loving it, will be jumping back on shortly to play a bit more, just looking forward to the solo demo and any further ML info we can get our hands on
If they don't pander to the FIFA kids and the YouTubers then we could really have a superb game here.. My worry is they will speed it up and that is just not needed, pacing is spot on right now!
