    Lol. “Stability” fix? What does that even mean? This patch is a joke, multiple freezes and crashes still remain in the game. What exactly was the point of removing Legacy defending from Pro Clubs? Now you’re forced to play with CPU players doing the “tactical” defending, which includes standing around as people blow by them, jogging alongside them as they move along the 18 for a shot, etc. I’m not a big fan of the “homing defenders” that Legacy brought to the table, but at least the CPU players would actually step to a player and attempt to play defense. And by the way, 90% of the teams I’ve encountered on Pro Clubs used Legacy…..so maybe the problem isn’t Legacy, it’s the broke-ass tactical defending. EA = fail

  • what they need to patch is the fucking scripting they continue to deny. other team got yet another 90th minute goal in pro clubs (shocker) after our team was dominating in possession time, shots on goal and tackles… but… it’s an EA game, no matter how good FIFA is (and it is good)… ea is ea.. it’s a fuckin shame. tired of being part of a fun game just to have the in game but of sight forces take over and spoil the thing. i’ve played over 70 pro club matches and at LEAST a quarter of those games we’ve conceded a goal in the 45th and/or 90th minute. sorry for the rant, but I’m definitely not the only one that feels this way.

    actually wasted money on pes 2013 (not a bad game but that god damn autosave, and I’m too used to fifa).

    • annoyed

      Agreed, but a large part of the 45th/90th problems are related to the disproportional amount of stoppage time. The game will state “2 minutes of stoppage time”, then allow for what would normally be 10 minutes of regular game time. As a result, there’s a dumb amount of time being played after the 45th/90th, resulting in some dumb goals.

      • that is true, I think it’s safe to say it’s a combination of both.

        • MARZ76

          its safe to say its the 360 thats causing all these issues

          • I’m on ps3 lol

          • BUT, what I will say is though.. you are right. 360 ports are straight shit. I’ve told people since the release of wack ops 1 that the developers of these call of duty games (every single one of em) don’t give a shit about ps3… so fuck em.

            that’s why I support devs like rocksteady, rockstar and 2k (just to name a few).. because they actually give a fuck about putting out a working title with few bugs on all systems. fuck bethesda too.

          • MARZ76

            yep u right bethesda said fuck ps3,they should have never ported the game from the 360. like i also said, like it or not DC universe is a massive open world with 4dlc,an it works good. it never was a ps3 problem its a dev an 360 problem. 360 fan base we are gettin fuck’d because 360 is using out dated tech on games with new tech,new engines etc etc do the math. 360 needs a new console out like 2day ps3 really dont need a new console yet. thx @…..

          • MARZ76

            COD isnt going to change because 360 actually is pimping treyarch whoever at COD. microsoft puts up the money every year for a basic shooter that was good. Microsoft always fucks up a great game thats multiplatformed

    • I had back-to-back games recently where I tied the game in the 90th only to lose in the 90th…both on ridiculous goals coming after play where the ball bounced off dozens of people in a massive scrum in the box. I don’t know if it is partly my fault for simply clearing during the 90th and assuming a whistle will blow…but I tend to concede a lot more in the 90th than any other minute…

      • whatever it is it can’t completely be on the human player. there’s no way in hell there should be so many 90th minute goals. sure people can say it’s their fault or it happens.. which I mean it does, but not that often, and the way it happens in FIFA it can only lead someone to believe they’re not completely at fault, and EA Canada has something to do with it. Too many convenient moments.. and I’m not even solely talking about the opponent, it happens on both ends.. shit, I MYSELF just scored a 90th minute goal about 2 days ago to win the game after 90 minutes of 0-0

        Might have actually been in the 89th minute or so, but any way you slice it the 45th/84th-90th minute.. nobody is safe, no matter how good your defense is.

      • annoyed

        it seems like this is how 90% of goals are scored in this game….massive scrums. the ball will take 35 deflections and wind up on some unmarked soul’s foot for an easy goal. it’s sad, but it seems that most games played in pro clubs are at the mercy of the “FIFA Gods”, where it’s simply which team gets lucky enough to win. Even when looking at the top 100 clubs in the world, it’s funny to see that the majority of them have the extremely even records like 101-85-98 or something, proving the point that the game is extremely unpredictable and reliant upon luck rather than actual skill.

    once again what was this game made on 360 an who gets the ported version ps3 what are the issues same issues. madden 13 nba 2k13 nhl 13 fifa 13 it dont end with the sports titles all games. i just want to say stop 360 ports when its multiplatform games with all its bs issues….360 ports are just horrible sad an f’d up. daam will anybody that has a 360 say your right it could be the xbox 360?

    Dude this FIFA pacth is damn joke.
    I installed, started new career mode and froze sooner than my last career mode.
    As soon as that happened i ran out and bought PES13 for the pc.
    EA is Fu#$%ing Up!!!

    • I bought pes 13 this week too, selling it already tho lol. not a bad game… just so used to fifa aids and i hope this isn’t a problem on pc.. but for some reason when you choose a certain cam.. like for example pro in BAL, the character models are jittery as fuck.. and auto-save and a couple of other things I’m not gonna try to get used to.

      hope u have a good time with it tho.

  • I’ve still had connection stability issues in seasons, and I still had it hang up on the practice field. It seems that when you have a few disconnects before the match, it’ll eventually screw up the rosters to show your supported club roster (no matter what team you selected). So after a few disconnects, I’m staring at, say, Manchester City, but all I see are DC United players (my supported club). At this point, even if you get into a match, it’ll disconnect immediately upon starting or you’ll get hung up on the practice field and either way you’ll have to restart the game if you want to connect to a match again. That seems to be the pattern. Yes, it’s lessened a little bit, but it’s still definitely there.

  • Madddd

    Stupid.. why remove legacy defending.. tactical is worse.. cpu concedes penalties without even touching the player they come into contact.. and they defend horrible..they should have an option where you choose what type of defending you wanna play.. and match players with similar settings.. god EA.. every year the mess up something…
