i have it on legacy but i don't use the double team button nearly as much as last seasons.

I still use the old system, can't really get used to the new style. Guess I need to play more with it to get used to it.
anyone on PS3 having difficulty downloading the new update?
I tried twice last night and twice again this morning. i tried the update through wifi, i wonder if i have to do it while connected directly to my router.
What's included in the new update?
i had to come post the retardedness that is fifa 12.
never NEVER get calls and these $#@!ing defenders run right through you. anywhere in the real world these two would be penalties
I recently started playing online on PS3.
The online gameplay is an atrocity.
Defending is absolutely impossible. And I swear this $#@! is programmed to allow back and forth scoring.
I've also started manager mode and simply cannot defend for $#@!. This game is ultra $#@!ing frustrating.
Used to play on Xbox hours on end. These $#@!ing ps3 controls are so weird.
Sounds like you just suck. Play more on the new defending and you'll get used to it.
Yeah, the fouling system is so jacked up, i can't believe some of the weird calls that go against me and yet the computer can run over me without touching the ball and that's perfectly fine. With the defensive system as challenging as it is, it would help out a lot if the fouls were more balanced. What gets me is that even when I send a defender to run with the guy (since running is all the ai teammates can do, they can't actually make an intelligent play on the ball), the same $#@!ty fouls are called.
You guys tried to adjust the sliders? Not even sure if there are any for penalties, but one would assume.
I don't seem to have trouble with penalties, but may be a result of how bad I am at the game itself and the level I have to play at to compete!
Maybe its just me, but has anybody noticed how they don't call offsides all the time? I mean...i get that its realistic to not call some of the close ones everytime but $#@!..Its a video game. Call it every $#@!ing time
also I'm in my 9th season with herefor united. and even though I'm only a four 1/2 star team I will be by far the best team in two years. there are exactly 7 players over 70 under 23 years old in the entire game left. no other club played their good players and the teams only play their best player regardless of how fatigued they are.
when all of barcelona's players retire it'll be a rap and every team will be fantastically mediocre.
I scored a goal with my goalie in a game last night...
Online is $#@!ing pissing me off. Between 1 pixel offside calls and every $#@!got using either AC Milan or Barca it's really tough to get into online play when its just people $#@!ing cheesing you.
So, I've been playing career mode on FIFA for forever now. The fact that I win 90% of the games that I manually pay never bothered me because it wasn't about a challenging game per se, but to me it was about getting better as an individual, and with the best players on the game. I really was just trying to score sick goals, make sick passes, and juke defenders. Thus the highlight reels. My goal was to make it to where I could school my friends when I play them. Well, I've finally gotten bored of that, and feel like Ive certainly done enough of that for now, so the plan is to finish out this career mode (i'll probably just do this one more season) and then start doing what a lot of you guys have been doing, and trying to build a small team up to a world power.
So, I decided that for this one last run where I'm better than everyone I play, that I would try and just stack the best team possible, and I think Ive pretty much done it. This is easily my most stacked starting 11 ever, and I actually have 2 or 3 guys on my bench who are 85+ and are really "co-starters". The transfer window just closed, and this is the team I came away with:
SHould be a fun season.

the simming system in fifa is the most retarded thing in the game. always a red card, always an injured player, and the computer makes your players tired as $#@!. way more tired than if i had everyone on turbo running around like jackasses all game. seriously, i can't ever make them that tired.
also. it should be noted that there are WAY more games in the nPower league games than in the EPL. there were times where i was playing about 10 games every month. so having a deep team was always more important than being top heavy. i went 22 deep and always had the freshest guys. and i spread my scrubs out with my decent players.
Oh,and I know it's way late, but your boy here has lost 35 lbs and counting Whenever you and Mike get done being superstars, come get this ass whoopin I've been meaning to give you on the basketball court
want more fifa 12 lunacy? well here you go.
it turns out my 27 years old 85 overall rated and badass goalie is some how valueless. why the $#@! is this even a possibility?
what do i care i'm not selling him? OH WAIT! he just handed in his transfer request. so now the likes of barceloner, real madrid, and the manchesters are lining up to offer $0 for him. when i say 'NO' i get this.
gee thanks FCB. and $#@! you fifa!
One time I bougt a player, Kroos or someone, for like $36,000,000, and after the money had been spent i received an email from the board informing that Kroos had decided to sign with another team, and that I should move on. The money was gone, and yet, when I tried to sell my players, he was listed on the roster, but as "signed this season". It stayed that way for 3 seasons.
yea the computer plays by it's own set of rules. like bullying your man when you can't do the same with a stronger players. how the defenders block every shot, every through pass, and every cross. the Derka example is also terrible and yes its happened in the last 3 fifas.
the most annoying is the CPU clearing the ball into the most perfect counter-attacking position several times in one game. or the clearing ball, into the through ball header, and now the CPU has 30 yards of clear space the ball and no defenders with 5 yards.
The thing that just absolutely baffles me the most, is that there are times when having control of your player and pressing buttons to prompt him to do something simply just doesnt matter. For example, Im playing the other day, and the cpu is on the attack, and the guy makes a pass on the ground, into the box for his teammate. I quickly click LB to taake over Angelo Ogbanna who, with his ridoculous length, speed, agility, and strength, will have no problem interjecting, as he's closer to the the ball, and much stronger than the oppsing striker. Welp, I got control of Ogbanna, but there was this like, entire second lag, and he just did not move for about a whole second. It was enough time to let the striker catch up wit the ball and easily score.
Or how about when you make a long pass, say 30-40 yards, on the ground, to a teammate. You can actually click LB, take that teammate over, and jam the ever living $#@! out of that joystick in the direction of the oncoming pass, and it dont make one goddamn bit of difference. That mothefucker is not going to move a muscle. That said, you better $#@!ing believe that cpu controlled defender 3 yards behind him is going to have zero problem sprinting past him for the easy interception, and often times counter. It's so baffling because someone at FIFA makes that part of the game. Like, year after year, they just keep putting that feature into this $#@!ing game on purpose! It might literally be the most unrealistic aspect of any major sports title. It'd be like if Aaron Rodgers threw a perfect pass that was going to hit Greg Hennings in stride, but Greg Jennings, through no fault of your own, just decided to stop running right where he was, so that the safety could easily pick the ball off. WHY THE $#@! DO THEY PUT THAT IN THE GAME?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Question for shaggy: how many crosses into the box from te run of play do you win? 1 out of 10? Less? Just another absolutely unrealistic part of the game. At one point I had Ibrahimavic, my VP who had a 99 vertical and was an aerial threat, RvP, and Doumbia, with the poacher trait, and I STILL never won a $#@!ing cross. Completing a cross is one of the absolute hardest things to do in the game, which is ridiculous. More than 90% of the crosses I lob in are won by the other team, regardless of numbers, stats, traits, talent, whatever. $#@!ing horse$#@!.
Since we're on such a roll, let's keep it going.
Unbelievably stupid $#@! about FIFA, part 24345648373:
For some reason, every now and then FIFA decides to inject this retarded lag into whatever prompt you make. In this case, Pique plays in a perfect through ball for Neymar, who, being that he sucks and all, takes a HORRIBLE first touch, and then decides to do this retarded run-up to the ball, instead of just kicking it in. So, you have Neymar, the guy can do this:
Completely unable to take a decent first touch and then shoot. As the ball gets to me, I let him take that first touch, and then immediately slam the shot button. It should take all of about .5 seconds for him to make his first touch and then shoot. Instead, his first touch, on a ball that isnt rolling very fast, with no one within 7 yards of him, requires him to take four entire steps before he can rear his leg back and futilely attempt a shot, which is obviously blocked by the defender who has long since caught up to him. $#@!ing. Gay.
oh, and just like in real life, when someone or something pisses me off during a sporting event that I'm playing in, I tend to go all Beast Mode on everyone. Well, after they stole the ball from Neymar, they immediately went down and got a handball in the box and converted the penalty. That was a mistake FIFA. I exacted my revenge with the swiftness:
