    Any Concacaf Champions League or is it still just MLS league play and a US Open Cup with just the MLS teams? Is the MLS Cup playoff structure accurately depicted?

      The closest we’ll get to that is an Americas Cup, like the one in the ipad version. MLS, Liga MX, Brazil league, and the Argentine league would be combined in one tournament, if EA incorporated that into the game…

      Slight correction: Chile and Colombia also have their leagues in the game now, so they would also have clubs represented…

        Yeah but the Americas cup wasnt playable last year from MLS teams, but if you were a team from another league you could face an MLS team in the Americas cup

      That GTA 5 is awfully nice…

      With FIFA, I usually get it once every 2 – 3 years, unless I have a way to get it otherwise. I already have FIFA 13, so I’m in no hurry…

    Haha I love the celebration paragraph. Funny stuff.

    Happy to hear AI defenders are getting better. Sometimes their decisions are ore baffling than David Luiz’s.

    It definitely feels a lot different, and is going to take some getting used to. The shooting feels a lot better but it’s been pretty hard to get a decent shot off. How they determine attribute ratings of a lot of the players continues to baffle me, especially in the speed/acceleration/agility areas

      Wow, just played my first match on Xbox and does feel different…in a good way. Like Panizo says, it feels more realistic because they toned down some movements to make players react better. Also, I noticed that the shielding of the ball works great and an improvement from last version. Can’t imagine how great this game will be on the next gen consoles.

    Can someone give me a breakdown of how the USMNT players are rated?

      This is off the top of my head so this will be off by a few.

      Dempsey: 81
      Jozy: 77
      Bradley: 75
      Donovan: 77 ish
      Jones: 75-77
      Howard is around 80. Guzan is 78-79 I think.

      Those are all the gold cards for Ultimate Team. Beasley is a 69 I think? Fabian is like a 72 ish. Can’t remember many others.

    I’m very interested in hearing more details about the career mode…

    I find the game much more difficult to create chances than before. I like the feel of it though. They fixed the stupid fouls, and the inability to hit the ball with either foot.

    I prefer the odd year FIFA iterations to the even year dev team. The gameplay feels more sluggish even if the physics make better use of momentum and collisions. But it’s the new FIFA so I bought it and sold the old one. Already looking forward to the PS4 World Cup edition at this point.

    PS3: Tralfmadorian add me if you play UT

    Can someone give me some details on the co-op season? I’ve been waiting for years for an EA game to allow a co-op season vs the computer. Doesn’t seem like rocket science, but they’ve yet to do it. Used to love getting together with a friend and playing through a season together but not an option when we live in different states.

    Sweet! I always wanted to play as Edwin Van Der Sar.

    USMNT default kit is the hoops (w/the hated “clipart” crest.) Centennial kit is an unlockable.
    The keeper starts in the green top w/the Centennial crest, though.
    Minor thing, but I noticed.

    Beat Mexico 2-1 in the first game I played. Terribly disappointed with myself.
