    Is this the right forum for this?

    Anyone else do PES instead of FIFA? I got it on PC, which is apparently finally up to PC standards relative to the console games.

    Right now just waiting for modders to sidestep all that license business.

    I might try this since it's on PC this year, but I've never played PES before.

    Never? It used to be Winning Eleven. Before that it was International Superstar Soccer.

    I played this a few years ago and it was fun, but all the cool kids (but also NML) were on FIFA and the randos online killed me

    I think I speak for all the turkeys (and definitely our win loss record) when I say feel free to go back

    You couldn't pay me to play soccer games online, inevitably with some Brazilian puber screaming "faggot" for 90 minutes.

    The two things that have always drawn me to PES over FIFA are that the game feels much more open (EA Sports games always feel slightly on the rails to me, like the ball goes where the game wants it to go, the tackles miss when the game wants them to miss, etc.). Players really feel like collections of different stats and talents rather than some template, and the ball feels like its own independent object.

    And I think Master League is probably my favorite franchise mode in any game (though dabbling with FM17 could change that). I love finding just the right pieces for my squad.

    The obvious downside (aside from Konami's incessant middle finger to PC) is the lack of licenses, but whatever. On console it might take some time to get all the uniforms and names right, but on PC that is basically mooted within days.

    The best was a group of Brazilians that just yelled "black" the whole time after they scored. Presumably they meant it as some kind of racial epithet?

    Will get this on the master race system at some point. After playing both demos this feels way better to me.

    I played the PES demo on PS4 (my brother sent me his system so I can play the Show haha) because Konami decided not to release a PC demo.

    It was fine in a vacuum, but once you play in 60fps on PC, going back to PS4 seems choppy as hell. Plus, the modding is so much easier on PC.

    Finally got all the squads properly kitted, added Bundesliga, and got my custom team Master League set up.

    It's an arduous process, but I'm jazzed to get back into this. I haven't played PES since WE 8 or 9 on Xbox, and I couldn't put it down.

    Is anyone else playing? I'll quit posting if I'm the only one haha.

    Really enjoying it so far, although FM has already made some of this annoying. I have tens of millions of dollars in available transfer budget but am down to pennies in wage budget, with no apparent way to shift the cash around.

    I assume this isn't a realistic problem, right? Why shouldn't the transfers and salaries come out of the same pot?

    I’m playing but been a bit busy. Just waiting for the PES World option file.

    PES 2019 Demo is out.

    The pace seems slower than last year and frequent one touch passing will be punished now.

    Shooting seems to be a bit sensitive. I sent a shot from Calhanoglu from inside the box on a one-on-one into row Z.

    The World Cup game debacle has soured me on FIFA and EA for a while.

    What was the world cup game debacle? The fact that they released world cup game mode for free this time instead of making it paid DLC?

    I was upset that they didn't have qualification, but thats because I'm a weirdo and FM serves me better in that capacity anyways. Getting the British Virgin Islands to upset England in the WC Quarterfinals is easier to do when you do it in the year 2076!
