NEW FIFA 19 LEAKS

NEW FIFA 19 LEAKS 1




















Hey comrades, the world of football is crazy exciting right now. Not only do we have the World Cup going up, but early FIFA 19 details have leaked as well!

Be sure to listen to the episode below and the bonus episode at the bottom of the article to find out everything new with FIFA 19 that we know so far.

New Custom Tactics in FIFA 19

It looks like FIFA is taking another page from PESbook. In FIFA 19, it looks like youll be able to precisely edit how many players join your attacks, and how deep your team sits. This could have a huge impact on gameplay, because you could counter the popular 41212(2) formation finally.

Furthermore, youll be able to decide how many players to send up for corners. This should drastically reduce the amount of corner counter attack goals that happen in FIFA.

Its nice to see a shift from arbitrary sliders to clearly defined gameplay systems.

NEW FIFA 19 LEAKS 2 


































Defensive tactics will function similarly, and youll be able to set what your team does upon losing the ball. Do they run back to reform? Should they press the ball carrier? Should they pressure across the entire pitch or just your own half?

A lot of these defensive options were theoretically possible in FIFA 18, but with the sliders not being clear on how and when they affected gameplay, unique tactics didnt really end up being viable.

Hopefully, the AI will be updated accordingly so that it can accommodate a variety of playstyles. Itll be really interesting to see if FIFA 19 formations and tactics start to mirror real world build up, instead of video gamey ping ponging across the pitch.

New Game Plans in FIFA 19 And New Shooting
 

Taking cues from PESdesign again, FIFA 19 will let you save multiple game plans.

Lets say you like to start off with 442 but want to play safer if you go up.

Well, instead of pausing the action and redoing all your tactics, you can set them up in advance change them mid match and your players will react accordingly. This should greatly improve the flow of matches and encourage a lot more creativity on the pitch.

Speaking of creativity, were bound to see more of it with the new shooting mechanic.

Double tapping the shoot button will no longer get you easy driven goals. Theres now a timing element to shooting. If you can time your shot well with a 2nd button press (think of it like controlling the animation), youll perform a good shot.

Were really looking forward to this change because it has the potential to maintain a skill gap. If scoring requires tactical awareness and practical ability, we wont be seeing the massive scorelines FIFA 18 is infamous for.

FIFA 18 TOTMD2 PLAYER REVIEW – SHAQIRI

FIFA 18 TOTMD2 PLAYER REVIEW - SHAQIRI

The group stages of the World Cup have brought numerous new and exciting players to the FUT Markets in recent weeks and TOTMD2 was no different.  TOTMD2 brought in a new crop of talent for FUT Managers to harvest, and right away my attention was drawn to the right side of the pitch;  Xherdan Shaqiri: the Swiss Locomotive.

With a squad focused primarily around the EPL I was intrigued with the idea of a stronger version of Mo Salah on my right flank.  Shaqiri’s stats suggest that he would bring a lot of the key qualities that I value in Salah, along with a 4 STAR WEAK FOOT, and a character architype that I was hoping would translate into added strength on the ball.  Immediately, I realized that there were three distinct categories to divide Shaqiri’s stats, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.  Shaqiri would flank the following squad:

THE GOOD

Shooting: 4.5/5

Passing: 5/5

Dribbling: 4/5

SHOOTING

Shaqiri is a magician on his preferred left foot.  If you are afforded the opportunity to open up for a curler outside of the box, it is more surprising when the ball does not find the top corner.  The addition of the HUNTER chemistry style also adds a nice boost to the finishing of an otherwise well stocked shooting category.  The video below has a small sample set of some of the goals Shaqiri scores and many look like carbon copies of each other.  After hitting one or two curlers early on the opposition begins to overplay Shaqiri’s left and opens the door for his right foot to cause a threat as well.

PASSING

There is not a lot to mention about Shaqiri’s passing and I think that this is a good thing.  At this point in the game you expect any worthwhile players to be able to play the ball where you want, when you want.  None of Shaqiri’s individual passes stand out to me, however he was in my default short corner position and the ability to cross the ball, with precision, on both feet, was a huge added bonus.  When it comes to passing in general Shaqiri hits his mark more often than not and his crossing is spot on.

DRIBBLING

I put this rating in the good category because when it comes down to straight up dribbling Shaqiri has the ball on a string.  The ball is like a yo-yo and just when opponents think they should lunge, Shaqiri is able to suck the ball back and make defenders look foolish if they go fishing for tackles.  My one issue will Shaqiri’s dribbling more to do with his pace and more specifically his lack of acceleration.  Many times I would easily manoeuver around my opponent, only to have them tackle me two seconds later as I pulled away at a snail’s pace.  But I will reiterate that this is not a dribbling issue per say and I was quite happy with the responsiveness of Shaqiri’s turns and pivots on the ball.

THE BAD

Pace: 3.5/5

Defending: 3/5

 PACE

At a dead sprint Shaqiri is quite fast.  There were a few times throughout the weekend that I was sure a defender was about to catch me and break up attacks at any moment, then Shaqiri would have just a little extra to pull away and find the right pass or hammer a shot towards goal.  The major issue with Shaqiri’s pace is that he accelerates like a train.  The wheels are trying to turn over, but it just takes a while to get going, and even longer to hit top speed.  I can only assume that this is a drawback of Shaqiri’s body architype and his wider frame affects his acceleration in some way.  With HUNTER applied Shaqiri is at a full 99 ACCELERATION, but it does not translate to in game speed.

DEFENDING

Again, he is an attacker so what do you expect.  But he really cannot defend at all.

THE UGLY

Physical: 2.5/5

PHYSICAL

5’6 – 72 JUMPING, 85 STAMINA, 71 STRENGTH, 73 AGGRESSION it is all quite terrible reading.  As previously mentioned I was hoping that the frame of Shaqiri (who looks massive in-game) would somehow translate into some hidden strength; I can report that this is definitely not the case.  In fact it almost felt the opposite.  As previously stated Shaqiri can dribble quite well, but the pace of the top end defenders just means that they are right back on top of you nipping the ball away and leaving the Swiss Locomotive trying to gain momentum to catch up.  Additionally, Shaqiri’s lack of stamina makes him a candidate for substitution early into the second half as he begins to drop off in quality.  One bonus that I will comment on is that Shaqiri’s 38 HEADING ACCURACY does not seem “accurate at all” and I was able to score the few headers that fell Shaqiri’s way.  I realize that heading is a defensive trait, but based on Shaqiri’s 5’6 height and poor jumping it might read that he is terrible in the air.  This is not at all the case, if he is alone in front of goal he will still find the back of the net.

FINAL SCORE 4.25/5

Wait? What? How?  If you add up the above ratings you do not get quite as generous of a score, in fact you get 3.75/5 so why the increase?  It is my belief that sometimes the stats don’t lie and that every so often the answer is staring you right square in the face.  This weekend Shaqiri managed 16 goals and 3 assists in 20 games of Weekend League.  This includes 3 or 4 rage quits by my opponents that could have led to further opportunities for goals.  For a player that costs 100k in a Weekend League that feels more difficult with each passing week, against more and more stacked squads, these stats demonstrate the potential value of TOTMD2 Shaqiri.  The past few weeks I may have fallen into a bit of a trap myself within my reviews after being spoilt with Monthly Rewards such as TOTS Neymar and TOTS Goretzka.  It stands to reason that if you spend 500k or 1 million coins on a player that they will be amazing.  But for 100k, you can still derail your opponents with the Swiss Locomotive: just open up on that left foot and let her fly.
Cheers for reading.

FIFA WC MOTMS – 94 NEYMAR, 87 WILLIAN, 84 CHADLI, OP INUI

FIFA WC MOTMS - 94 NEYMAR, 87 WILLIAN, 84 CHADLI, OP INUI




















Monday’s Round of 16 matches saw Mexico’s Cinderella run end at the hands of Brazil, and an incredible effort from Japan cancelled out by a Belgian comeback for the ages. Barcelona’s Neymar and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino got on the scoresheet as the Seleção blanked El Tri two goals to nil. Meanwhile, Japan took a 2-0 lead with back-to-back goals shortly after halftime, but a three-goal rally, finished off Nacer Chadli in the 94th minute, sent the Samurai Blue home.
Neymar began the scoring six minutes into the second half, while a staunch Brazilian defense, historically uncharacteristic of past national teams, held the Mexican attack scoreless. Mexican keeper Guillermo Ochoa tried his best to stave off the high-octane Brazilian offense, making eight saves in the process. Willian recorded two shots on target and made three key passes en route to an all-around performance. Neymar jumps from 93 to 94 overall in FUT World Cup while WIllian goes from 85 up to 87.
West Brom’s Chadli was the hero at Rostov Arena, as his goal in the 94th minute completed a three-goal comeback for the Red Devils. Japan came out at a blistering pace in the second half, scoring back-to-back goals four minutes apart. Genki Haraguchi finished off a beautiful counter-attack with a quick shimmy and pasted the ball into the bottom left corner in the 48th minute, and Takashi Inui’s outside-the-box tally doubled Japan’s advantage in the 52nd.
But Belgium would respond. Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen began the comeback with a header from an almost impossible angle in the 69th minute, and five minutes later, Eden Hazard shook his defender to send in a swerving cross that met the head of Maroune Fellaini for the tie.
Chadli jumps five overall, from 79 up to 84, while Inui now has bonkers looking stats — 98 aceleration, 99 agility, 99 balance, and 96 dribbling — and an 86 overall rating after previously being updated from 78 to 82.
The four items will be dynamically updated in FIFA 18′s World Cup mode. The rest of the World Cup ‘Man of the Match’ items follow below, and if you’re looking to stay updated on every new player in the mode (or FUT 18, otherwise), the database can be found here.

FIFA 18 WORLD CUP MOTOS – ISCO, RAKITIC, SCHMEICHEL, AKINFEEV

FIFA 18 WORLD CUP MOTOS - ISCO, RAKITIC, SCHMEICHEL, AKINFEEV

Goalkeepers Igor Akinfeev and Danijel Subašić were the stars of the show Sunday as both matches went to penalties in the World Cup knockout round: a rare phenomenon. The Russian captain saved two penalties, from Koke and Iago Aspas, respectively, to push the host nation through to the quarterfinals over 2010 winners Spain. Later, Croatia added another chapter to their Cinderella story with a nail-biting finish against Denmark. Akinfeev and Subasic jump to an 85 and 86 in-game from 80 and 83 respectively.
Spain took the lead ten minutes in, off a ridiculous set-piece scrum goal that ended up being awarded as an own goal to Sergei Ignashevich. Russia countered with a penalty four minutes before halftime, which was created and put in by recent Russian hero Artem Dzyuba.
The loss to Spain meant the final international match for generational midfield legend Andrés Iniesta, who announced his retirement shortly after the final whistle. Rising star, Isco, who seems poised to lead Spain’s next generation, drew high marks once again for his performance in the losing effort. Isco’s second and final ratings jump goes from 87 to 89. He began FUT 18 World Cup as an 86.
The Croatia-Denmark matchup took off at an alarming pace, with two goals scored in the first four minutes. Mathias Jørgensen scored the quickest goal of the World Cup off a corner, just 57 seconds in, while Croatia counteracted the Danes with a Mario Mandžukić strike. Subašić put on an absolute clinic between the sticks, vying against his counterpart, Danish keeper Kasper Schemeichel, saving three penalties en route to a 3-2 win. Schmeichel goes from an 83 overall to an 86.
Croatia’s midfielder duo of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic were once again all class, with the latter, who scored the clinching penatly, the recipient of EA’s outfield player nod for the night’s econd match. Rakitic’s second FUT WC MOTM honor sees him go from an 87 to an 89 after starting the mode as an 86 overall.
The five items will be dynamically updated in FIFA 18′s World Cup mode automatically. The rest of the World Cup MOTMs follow below, and the latest World Cup (or FUT 18 items) can be found here.

FIFA 18 WORLD UP – MAN OF THE MATCH – FELLAINI, MINA, KHAZRI, BEDNAREK

FIFA 18 WORLD UP - MAN OF THE MATCH - FELLAINI, MINA, KHAZRI, BEDNAREK


















The last day of the group stages was relatively tame, at least compared to the rest of the week’s matches. Belgium beat England, 1-0, to win Group G, while Tunisia came from behind to defeat Panama 2-1 for bragging rights. In the early games, Colombia lay claim to first place in Group H with a one-nil victory over Senegal, the last African team in contention, and Poland almost played spoiler for Japan with yet another 1-0 scoreline.
Belgium’s Adnan Januzaj scored a worldie, curling a shot over England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford early in the second half, to get his first international goal on the biggest of stages. Marouane Fellaini put in a shift in the middle of the park as the staunch Belgian defense held the 1-0 lead. After an own goal pegged them back in the first half, Tunisia equalized in the 51st and took the lead through vice captain Wahbi Khazri 15 minutes later. The match ended 2-1. Fellaini goes from an 81 overall rating to a while Khazri jumps from 78 to.
Japan managed to qualify despite giving Poland the consolation win, with 22-year-old centerback Jan Bednarek scoring his first international goal as well. Colombian hero Yerry Mina scored his second of the tournament to win the group for Los Cafeteros. Bednarek’s FUT WC rating increase from a meager 68 all the way to while Mina jumps from 77 to.
The four items will be dynamically updated in your club if you have them already. The rest of the latest World Cup (or FUT 18) items can be found here, and the following list contains the rest of the past MOTMs.

FUTBALL – 94 CLASSIC EUROPEAN HERO – ARJEN ROBBEN

FUTBALL - 94 CLASSIC EUROPEAN HERO - ARJEN ROBBEN




















Today, we’ll be looking at the last Friday released Classic European Hero (read: unofficial icon) Arjen Robben.
This 94-rated item is a throw-back to his FIFA 15 TOTY item, which at the time, was almost game-breaking.
Robben’s in-game stats are truly one of a kind. The highlights include
99 acceleration, balance and dribbling,
98 sprint speed, long shots,
97 shot power and curve,
96 volleys, agility and ball control,
94 finishing, positioning and short passing,
I used the Marksman chemistry style on him, boosting his shooting, dribbling and physical stats.

STATS
Here are my stats with Robben:
Price: 550,000
Games: 7
Goals: 12
Assists: 3
Let’s get into the review.
REVIEW
Pace: 10/10
99 acceleration and 98 sprint speed, with 96 agility, 99 balance and 99 ball control — what did you expect? Possibly the fastest player I have ever used.
Shooting: 10/10
He can do everything. Inside the box, he can power it home, drive it past the keeper, or finesse it into the top corner. Outside the box, he can pull off across-the-body bangers, long range missiles, exceptional low-driven strikes, or the best finesse shots I’ve seen this year. Truly one of the best shooters I’ve ever seen.
Now, you might be wondering why I’m not penalizing him for having a two-star weak foot. Sure, it limits his abilities, but his left foot good enough to make up for it. As long as you have a yard of space for him to swing that left foot of his, he can score. And in all honesty, the weak foot wasn’t awful – from close range, he got the job done.
Passing: 9/10
I had absolutely no issues with his passing. His crossing was fantastic, his short passing reliable, and his curve is game-breaking. The reason he gets a 9/10 here is because of his 79 long passing. It didn’t cause any issues, but I was never confident enough to really try the hardest long passes. Also, his weak foot can hurt him here, since he can’t whip in crosses without having to cut in first.
Dribbling: 10/10
Unbelievable. Astounding. Perfect. With the marksman chemistry style, he has 99′s in all his stats here, and it feels like this. His dribbling is flawless — he can weave and turn and stop with ease, and do it all at top speed. He’s unbelievable on the ball.
Oh, and the 93 composure is stunning too.
Defending: N/A
He’s a winger — give him a break. But he’s fast enough to sneak up on defenders, and latch onto loose balls.
Physical: 8/10
He feels so strong in game, and his aggression is good enough to hold off a lot of players. He’s still going to get hammered by the Ferdinands and Ramos’s of the world, but he’s strong enough to hold his ground against full-backs and wide players. What hurts him here is his relatively low stamina — he’s pretty dead by the 80th minute — and his aggression can feel inconsistent at times.
SUMMARY
Overall, this is a phenomenal player item. His pace, shooting and dribbling are second to none, and he feels incredible in game. He’s effective, and super enjoyable to use. The elephant in the room will be his two-star weak foot, but it didn’t really affect my experience with the item. He’s pretty expensive now, so I’d recommend waiting for the price to drop before getting him. But when that price drops, this is an item you cannot miss out on.
Rating: 9.5/10

FIFA WORLD CUP – 5 MOTMS INCLUDING 90 CAVANI

FIFA WORLD CUP - 5 MOTMS INCLUDING 90 CAVANI




















The first day of Matchday 3 brought concurrent matches in Groups A and B, and thus double the excitement. Uruguay won the race for first in Group A against Russia, thanks to Edinson Cavani and company, while Egypt and Saudi Arabia brought life to what essentially was a third-place match with an exciting 2-1 win for the latter. Portugal somehow ended up with second place in Group B with a 1-1 draw against Iran, while Spain stole first with a late equalizer to make it 2-2 vs. Morocco.
Russia’s confidence was brought down a peg by visitors Uruguay, as the host nation was trampled, 3-0. Luis Suarez started the scoring early and Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani topped it off with a 90′ minute goal. Cavani goes from 89 up one to 90 overall. Saudi Arabia came from behind to win it against Egypt, thanks to a late, late goal from Salem Al Dawsari in the 94′ minute. Al Dawsari sees a huge jump from 70 overall to 78 in his last World Cup mode bump with his team eliminated.
Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand saved a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo, who failed to capitalise after a wonderstrike from Ricardo Quaresma, and Iran scored a late one to make it 1-1 against surprise Group B runners-up Portugal, who had the group seemingly locked up until VAR awarded a late penalty to Iran. Spain tied it up very late to make it 2-2 against a hearty Moroccan team, as Dani Carvajal queued it up on a silver platter for Celta de Vigo’s Iago Aspas, who ensured entry to the knockouts as the top seed for Spain after a contentious VAR situation of their own involving an overrule of an initial offsides call on Aspas’ goal.
Beiranvand’s second FUT World Cup Man of the Match, a first in this year’s game mode, sees him go up to a final rating of 84 overall from 82 (after initially starting out a base 75) with Quaresma jumping from 83 to 85. Aspas’ also increases from 83 to 85 overall.
These five items will dynamically updated in the FIFA 18 World Cup mode; their ratings are boosted automatically. The rest of the FIFA 18 World Cup MOTMs follow in the list below, and all of the latest FUT 18 players can be found here.

FIFA WORLD CUP MOTMS – 83 LINGARD, 84 CUADRADO, 82 INUI

FIFA WORLD CUP MOTMS




















The final day of Matchday 2 brought some exciting finishes between national teams in Groups G and H. England blew out Central American opponents, 6-1, off braces from Harry Kane and Jesse Lingard. Japan and Senegal played to an exciting 2-2 draw, and Juan Cuadrado and Colombia sent Poland home with a 3-0 victory.
John Stones may have started the scoring between England and Panama, and captain Harry Kane bagged a fluky hat-trick, but it was Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard that grabbed headlines with his 36th minute strike. His goal put The Three Lions up 3-0 and was the dagger that effectively put the game to bed. His 80-rated card goes to an 83 overall.
Japanese midfielder Takashi Inui, who plays for Spanish side Real Betis, equalized for Japan in the 34th minute after Senegal had taken a 1-0 lead off a Sadio Mane goal 11 minutes in. The two teams played to a riveting 2-2 tie and will have everything to play for as Matchday 3 rolls around. Inui’s 78-overall card is boosted to an 82.
Juan Cuadrado put La Tricolor up 3-0 against Poland, five minutes after captain Radamel Falcao doubled Colombia’s 1-0 advantage in the 70th. The Juventus midfielder’s rating goes from 82 to an 84 overall. As always, if the three items are in your club, they have been dynamically updated in the FIFA 18 World Cup mode; their ratings are boosted automatically.

90 ERIKSEN, 87 RAKITIC, 86 GIROUD, 81 MOOY IN FUT WORLD CUP MOTMS FOR MATCHDAY 2 DAY 2

90 ERIKSEN, 87 RAKITIC, 86 GIROUD, 81 MOOY IN FUT WORLD CUP MOTMS FOR MATCHDAY 2 DAY 2




















The eighth day of the FIFA World Cup brought games from Groups C and D, as Ivan Rakitić and Croatia stunned and routed Lionel Messi’s Argentina, France beat Peru by a scoreline of 1-0, and Denmark and Australia played to a 1-1 draw. And so, Wednesday’s FIFA 18 FUT World Cup ‘Man of the Match’ release brings us dynamic updates to Croatia 87 CM Ivan Rakitić, Denmark’s dynamic 90 CAM Christian Eriksen, French forward 86 ST Olivier Giroud, and Aussie midfielder 81 CM Aaron Mooy.

Croatia pushed 2014 World Cup runners-up Argentina to the brink of elimination with an impressive 3-0 victory. Rakitic put the icing on the cake with an extra-time goal in the 91st. Their performances upgrades Rakitić from an 86 to an 87 overall rating.

Kylian Mbappe’s goal, which made him the coutry’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the World Cup, was the difference between France and Peru; the Paris Saint-Germain star redirected Giroud’s deflected shot in the 34th minute. The Chelsea man also won five aerials and made three key passes en route to the one-nil victory. Spurs maestro Christian Eriksen got his country off to a 1-0 start in the seventh minute with a beautiful half-volley from the edge of the box, but the game halted to a 1-1 tie at fulltime. Eriksen is upgraded from an 89 to a 90 overall. Giroud goes from 84 to 86.

Aaron Mooy has been outstanding for Australia through their two Group C 2018 World Cup match run, and for it he finally gets his just deserves with a FIFA 18 World Cup mode Man of the Match ratings bump. The Soceroos surely felt hard done not getting the full three points given how well they played the final 3/4 of the aforementioned 1-1 tilt against Denmark, but Mooy was class once again, finishing with a team high 7.3 match rating on WhoScored. His 76 WC base item jumps all the way to 81 overall.

As per usual, the four player items are available in packs now, but if you already have them stored away in your World Cup club or duplicate pile, they will be automatically updated.
