we all entitled to our own opinion..and i support the one earlier that fifa is filth...stopped playin it since 05....
it might have better graphics...but graphics doesnt make a game at all...

there will always be ppls who like it....
is like
prefering nba JAM over nba live and those more realisitic basketball games; simply because ppls might want to jus dunk on men heads and not have to worry bout systems and defending....
FIFA is like NBA JAM....simple

slightly off topic.....but fuh meh Football Manager boys like Jahyouth, FM08 coming out around mid Oct - early Nov. Already have some nice screenshots on the Sports interactive website. The latest version of the greatest glorified spreadsheet that ever existed. They really do good with the 07 version as it seriously customisable, the database have like 200+ trini's so you could manage T&T straight off now instead of messing about with the editor fuh hours as you had to in previous games, they also fix the gold cup so T&T does qualify now, unlike before when Belize and Anguilla used to qualify every tournament.

Believe this....Ah win the Premier with Forest and apply fuh T&T job after Wim get sack post ah shit WC campaign, yet Bertile get the job...man have a Continental reputation  ??? , Ah had to remind mehself it eh real as ah almost destroy meh computer ah was so vex....... love this game!  ;D

As a big football fan, i find it very hard to play a football game, with men looking like cartoon and running like robots, and stiff stiff controls.
Im sorry, Fifa is as close to reality as it gets
I playing fifa since 97, and winning eleven is only for a casual football follower, not a die hard football fan


FIFA 08

sorry, i cant help it i have to break the no pro evo/winning eleven rule for this thread...

I was lifelong fifa man from fifa 97 i think, and a die hard, always updating with every version.. I thought it could get no better, this was the best game in the world, and every year it proved me wrong and got even better...

i got right up to fifa 07 until i listened to the many critics and finally went over to the dark side and try my hand at pro evolution soccer (pes6, same as winning eleven i think)...

I must say, for gameplay this is the VERY BEST GAME out there... It make me realize how unrealistic fifa is for these reasons...

1. men can change direction unrealistically, like 180 degree turns
2. men can pass in unrealistic ways, like running in one direction and just pass the ball in the exact opposite direction which is impossible
3. glitches
4. common ways to score i.e. you shoot, keeper always parries back into play, you follow up and score (75% of goals scored like this, keeper never parries out to sideline)
5. outlet pass from defence automatically goes directly to your forward waiting at half line, without having to direct it.. unrealistic


In short anyone who plays the actual sport of football will appreciate pro evolution more than fifa because the game is more realistic despite its shortcomings in graphics and licensing

Fellas I took my time and read his thread and I think its time to switch to the dark side. I’ve been a FIFA man since 98 and can’t imagine a better football game but all this talk about winning eleven is making me curious. My only questions are:

Are the number of leagues in pro eleven as extensive as in FIFA 2007?

What are the modes like? Is there a mode for league play, manager or world cup qualifying?

Most importantly can the names of the tnt team be edited? I don’t mind taking some time to edit the names if the game allows me to. If the names cannot be edited I will have a hard time playing it because it would take away from the realism.

What about the skill level of players in this game, are the skill levels accurate enough?

Wat allyer tink, time to make the switch?   :-\

You can edit names, face, hairstyles, height, everything. There are patches available that can edit most of the names. And lists online you can use to manually edit the rest.

doh forget that u could run thru a whole side with jus about anybody once u get the hand of it...i mean running thru a side with Campo and runnin thru a side with ronaldo should be on 2 separate sides of the spectrum..

all i could say to these fifa fanatics....doh knock it til ya try it....and most of all ya have d modified systems...get a burn copy ...or a cheap copy of a older winning eleven(Which not fully doin it justice but is a cheap way of gettin it) on amazon...cheap games is be like 5 - 10US

fifa editing is real toots...and i tink is fifa 05 or 06.. ya cant really add and make players and add them to a roster...for example if the game was made b4 messi was put into it for example cause he was too young or didnt break thru to the 1st team (i talkin a hypothetical situation but it happens with some players..for all u football freaks..u should know wha i talkin bout).....ya could edit a no name man on d team and make him  messi....

and i REALLY doh understand there being a "yorkub" or a "latapie"....u could jus go to the edit mode and change it...and though they might not have his name in the game...latapy that is...u can make the commentator say a name close to his name...like if there is a guy in the game with a last name "Russell" or a last name sounding like Latapy, u can choose it and the commentator will use that name to identify the player durin the game....

and personally, i actually enjoy editing the game...when ya get it new...ya have real players to transfer, ya could edit kits that are not licensed..change Goalkeeper shirts, logos, team logos, as  aman say, hairstyles and boots...
jed...no lie, for Winning eleven 9...they licensed adidas boots....but thru the wonderful option of editing i was able to make a Diadora boots...it easy!

and study this....ya could buy some old school players, and old school teams like argentina with maradona....buy players like Klinsmann, Hierro, Lentini....AND...ya could decide what kind of celebration u want ya player to do....

i have winning eleven 9 almost a yr and a half..didnt decide to buy the newest one cause it didnt make sense as i was not able to play much cause of school and work....and i sitll enjoyin winining eleven 9....and jus bought the "new celebrations" options...
ppls..doh knock it til ya try it

No, when setting up a new game select advance options and then select the drop down menu that allows you to load all players from a specific nation....select T&T. This makes T&T manageable. after that I think you just select the team as your choice of team to manage once the database is generated. I only like getting offered or applying for the job and therefore have not actually tried this so I ain't 100% certain if you could manage T&T immediately. As for actually managing the team in a game yuh already playing...there are two options (provided you loaded a LARGE player database), Ah doh like cheating so only go for the job when my rep is good enough. Problem being if yuh rep worse than Bertile he does always get the damn job...even Alvin Corneal and Brian Williams have better reps at the game start. However if Bertile retired, or your rep is continental and you can't wait for the current manager to leave the post, just create a character and put him to manage T&T then make him retire, apply for the job and hope.

yeah i was wondering that too cause in fifa career mode i used to play the tough, serious games and simulate the easy games.. heard alot about football manager but never really delve since i eh have no room for a next vice in meh life...

trust me if i could go to the dark side, anyone can cause i was a die hard.. and the true litmus test is to play winning eleven for a day or two then go back to play fifa and you will then understand the difference.. FIFA over the last few years has even been changing their gameplay to match winning eleven and also incorporates winning eleven controls..

one man ask bout beatsing in winning eleven. assuming pro evo is the same thing, the spanner is the wickedest i have ever seen, i pelt down de controls when i first hit a man one, but seems like only few players skilled enough to do it..

a next thing i have to ask of fifa..

- de game ever just stick on you? i mean de ball in one spot and men just walking around de ball and cant touch it till half time?

sincerely,
rehabilitated fifa man

one man ask bout beatsing in winning eleven. assuming pro evo is the same thing, the spanner is the wickedest i have ever seen, i pelt down de controls when i first hit a man one, but seems like only few players skilled enough to do it..

a next thing i have to ask of fifa..

- de game ever just stick on you? i mean de ball in one spot and men just walking around de ball and cant touch it till half time?

sincerely,
rehabilitated fifa man


omardinho...by chance ya went fatima??

anywasy...yeh it stick a couple times...but didnt wait til it came back..or was that the old versions like WE8...
anyways....
dat spanner real wicked...though sometimes i get vex when ronaldinho doin it all d time..lol.

but i glad only certain players could do it....jed...ya figure it making sense for man like Paulo Fereirra to be bussin spanner...their skill level aint hi...so they shouldnt...is only fellas like ronaldinho and zidane were able to do it i tink....

and i glad the AI gonna be improved....cause jed..playin the computer at times...them is be knockin small goal football in d backline like ass...then BOOOMM goal in dey ass!
lol

Winning eleven alll d way...
Fifa is like NBA JAM..arcade alll the way

quesiton on football manager...think i player 06...

correct me if i wrong...u only can manage...u dont actually play the game ...u have to watch these dots on a football field play against the computer and u get updates to what is goin on int he game???

i know it was a older version but what is it like now/

hard luck...yeh is a fifa thread but we cah be lokin to make a next thread for jus this..is all video games..
fifa it toots..

Pretty much the same, it just gets more and more detailed each year, now, you have to do more indepth media interviews , negotiate wage and transfer budget with the board, negotiate your contract, you could complain about refering decision (sometimes getting banned from the touchline due to this), it would take me ages to describe all the tweaks, but essentially.......as I said, its the greatest glorified spreadsheet ever made. Depends on what style of game you like. If you take this perspective, In real life you cannot directly influence how each individual player performs on the pitch. but that is what you do in games like FIFA/PES etc, while the influence you have on a game like FM is more realistic, is more about sweettalking or bullying ah player to putting in a good performance. I like both types but much prefer management games as they more cerebral and you could see a development, you suceed and fail by the decisions you make. In FIFA type games is more about 'laying the smackdown' on yuh opponent,  if ah fella real good at using a joystick, he could take Toabgo Utd and make them lay 5 on Barca. But don't get me wrong, these games are enjoyable, just in a different way.

Plus ah bitter as meh son does cut meh arse in PES  ::)

Horse, sorry but I cannot in good faith lead you to the black hole called Football Manager.  That game evil.  Yuh go spend whole night playing (15 minutes more!) till yuh look outside and sun shining and is just to bathe and go to work.

It is a management game meaning you are the manager of Arsenal, Man Utd or nearly 500 other teams worldwide and yuh conduct it like Arsegne Wenger or Alex Fergusson from there.  Over 200,000 REAL players in the game database rated in a number of different football categories e.g. heading, shooting, passing, speed, creativity etc.  Buy and sell players with the transfer money that the Board give you.  When game time comes set up your system, give instructions and watch the game from the sideline like a manager.  After the game answer questions from the media, but watch wha yuh say as your players might get vex.  Or manage an international team.  I took Argentina to the semis in South Africa 2010 and nearly cry when I lose 5-4 in penalties to France.

No matter what team I manage, I always buy two or three young Trinis to get them a start in Europe.

Is the matrix horse.  Das all ah could say.

Confession of another football manager/championship manager addict

I see this topic gone from fifa08 to winning eleven to football manager and i wholeheartedly endorse everything Jahyouth and FF say.... stay away from this game.... i playing this since it was called cm97/98 when eidos and si were still one.... i was in 4th form back then..... mi parents used to think i was up studying when is game i killing
I used to take off the light in mi room so ppl would think i sleeping when is game i playin....only problem there was when a goal score it used to flash on the screen and hurt mi eyes but it was worth it

Right thru cxc and A levels i playing hence the poor grades

Funny thing is at the loading screen for the game it has an addiction level....it would tell u how many hours in total u played and always has a comment like don't forget to bathe or to carry out the garbage or feed the cat

Haven't played this since about 2005 though but reading the discussions here i tempted again

Just one more signing b4 i sleep :rotfl:
This is mi last contract offer b4 i go to sleep :rotfl:
Just one more match then your realise is european competition or is man u or chelsea or barca u playing next  so u hv to play that match b4 u go

Yup...Football Manager addict here as well. But I feeling old, cause I playing since the game was called CM2, this would be 92/93 when Shearer first burst on the scene.

And...I telling u it so bad that I would have girls waiting naked for the brush on my bed and i only saying...''let me just save the game'' when in fact I playing one more game, one more game. And next thing u know, is daylight, time for class...lol.

But back to managing trinidad, yeah i always load all the players for trinidad but nah I don't think you could manage them from the start of the game. I will try to manage when the coach get fired or something.

But I did cheat somewhat, I usually edit some of the players to give them random potential instead of limited potential...so is not really cheating but the side winning and I have some boss players on my club teams.

P.S I only use fake names, I doh play with real players anymore, so that way I not distracted by big name players but rather on men actual skill and potential.

We mus be old den, but sorry I beat you on the old skool FM situation...first played the original Championship manager before CD-ROM existed. Beta tested for them occasionally when they was with ah company called Domark and their first spinoff CM - Italia. They then went to Eidos. I really liked the originals as you could finish ah whole season in about 8 hrs play (continous play mind you) that was serious addiction.

As fuh T&T management you can manage straight off! Just tried it last night, with the 7.0.2 patch installed, select large database and load all T&T players. When you get the option to manage ah team, select an international side and T&T should be selectable. (Fuh some reason when I did this Jamaica was manageable as well?).

On a sidenote I like the fact that you could put yuh own face in the game now.

does anybody customise the game, like using 3D kits (T&T 3DGT kit does look nice), skysports newsticker, skinning the interface (use radestock's r-5 vista skin, is sweet and allows you to use different size player photo's than the normal default), making the PFL a playable league etc.

yep I'm addicted also.  ;)

Dem kinda ting does turn friends to enemies...

Other ways to recognize a rank FIFA/Winning Eleven/Pro Evolution nasty man..


- Watching full celebrations and goal replays over and over, even rewinding

- Jumping up and down when scoring, laughing in your opponents face, other manual celebrations

- Fouling your opponents players who goalbound indiscriminately with no intent to get the ball

- Injuring your opponents players and laughing about it with no remorse

- Passing the ball around your back 4 when leading 1-0 to kill time to the final whistle.

- Calling it a night after winning only 1 or 2 games to claim victory and superiority

- Continuously subbing or adjusting formations mid-game upsetting the flow of your opponent


and the real killer stink man play which could end up coming to blows... no sane human being with a conscience would ever do the following:

- Pausing the game just as your opponent lining up a shot to mess up his attack!

but if we have a tournament...i doh want to hear men vex cause i fixin and tweakin my lineup and makin subs...dat is d game!

any tournament with time restraints MUST follow the "Just play the game" philosophy = no in-game subs, formation changes barring injury or ejection.. you can change strategy mid-game using the controls during game play but no hitting pause. that will cause overrun, frustration and break the flow of the game...

Remember last year my first pro evo tournament... Only ever play the game once, and get drawn against the top seed in the opening game.. De man does regularly play tournaments all over de UK, registered online, a career pro evo man.. meh cutass was booked..

ah put down a real mourinho on him.. I was playing with barcelona.. First thing i do is start everybody on de "i never really play it, i just happy not to get embarassed" talk.. Then pull de man aside and hitting him, "boy i am an underdog, but i hope you know that anything less than a win against me wouldnt look good at all. I mean you play in tournaments.."

then drop him an email, subject line "your worst nightmare", with only a big smiling photo of eto'o..  then hype up we game large large leading right up to the game...

Well by de time i was done with he, he was a nervous wreck.. for the game, play a 4-5-1 and congest the midfield and rough up men and score first to boot, de man was  :o... manage to hold him to a draw and he take bout 3 games to recover from that..

ahhh yes those were the days.. Yeah fellahs de ting serious, doh feel allyuh coming johnny come lately round me in any tournament, cause i looking to psychologically beat yuh before we even pick up joystick...

how many in this thread are locals, we could organize a lil tourney?
