    Seen as it says “hopefully we can have some fun with this” and everyone’s nominations so far have been incredibly dull and predictable I will make it somewhat entertaining for @Foxy and nominate...

    3rd place no less! (would have been even slightly better if I had not sold my guy to PSG only to then immediately buy him back - he wouldn't accept my contract offers to I had to get creative)

    Start with either 7/9/10. I can’t fault either of those three to be honest. 9 being the last one on the PS before the jump to full on 3D. The graphics jump between 9 and 10 is incredible actually. Well it was at the time anyway

    I think this one will be as you can per order it now on game. I’m surprised it’s as pricey as it is actually - £44.99 😳 FF XII is out at the end of April too, that one has a totally different battle system that makes the game incredible despite the story not being as strong as other games. FF VII is also being released at some point although I’m not sure if it’s the new remastered one or just a port of the original

    Mario Kart as part of the bundle at the moment. I’ve got Zelda in the post - should be here tomorrow or Friday and I’m seriously hyped for it! I’ve got Mario Oddysey in my amazon wish list so I may make that purchase on Friday 😛 Final fantasy X/X-2 is released on the switch in April so that’s something I’ll be looking to get as soon as tbh as I’m a huge FFX fan

    Yeah I kinda remember enemy placement being there to catch you out more than anything which is as you say, cheap
    I’ll more than likely get Crash eventually actually as it’s something I’ve always wanted to replay in HD

    Play crash back to front is what I heard. As In play 3 first then 2 then the first one. Apparently it’s easier to learn the mechanics in the later games. I’m too OCD to even do that mind lol

    samhardy reacted to Nucleus in FMM19 Training: Which Intensity?   
    Part One: Intensive Training
    Massive apologies for the delay lads. It’s been a hectic week to say the least! 
    In part one of this experiment we will be looking at the pros and cons of having each player on the intensive training setting. Each member of the chosen starting XI will play every game possible up until the 1st of January, the only exception is when a player is unavailable through injuries or suspension.
    First off, let’s briefly run through the starting XI and the formation that I’ll be using. 
    Formation:-

    As you can see, this is a fairly standard 4-3-2-1 formation. It’s a slight variation on @PriZe‘s Black Pearl tactic that has proven to be a very popular tactic in the past few years.
    Starting XI:-
    GK: David De Gea
    RB: Diogo Dalot
    LB: Luke Shaw
    RCB: Eric Bailly
    LCB: Victor Lindelof
    RCM: Ander Herrera
    CM: Nemanja Matic
    LCM: Paul Pogba
    RW: Marcus Rashford
    LW: Anthony Martial
    ST: Romelu Lukaku
    I’d personally like to think that this squad is a fairly balanced one in terms of this experiment. We have young talents in the likes of Rashford and Dalot. Experienced heads in Matic and De Gea. Players nearing or at their peak in Pogba and Lukaku, and also a couple of players who are known to take a knock now and again in Shaw and Bailly. I purposefully put those two in as I’d like to see what the different intensities can do for an injury prone player, Luke Shaw especially.
    The Results:-
    Now is the time to reveal how these eleven players got on whilst all under the influence of intensive training.
    David De Gea:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Communication +1
    Handling +1
    Leadership +1
    Total = +3
    Only the ten days out injured for our number one, and with little room for improvement anyway it was nice to see his Handling, Communication and Leadership get boosted by a point each.
    Diogo Dalot:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Crossing +3
    Dribbling +3
    Shooting +1
    Tackling +3
    Creativity +1
    Decisions +2
    Movement +1
    Positioning +1
    Total = +15
    No injuries whatsoever for the young right back and he improved immensely in the short time we played this save, a massive 15 points across the board actually.
    Luke Shaw:
    Season Start:

    Injuries: N/A 😳
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change: N/A 
    What a strange result on the part of this player. When I first set up the save I was rooting for him to miss the majority of the save but in a huge twist, he didn’t suffer a single injury. On the downside he didn’t improve as a player in the slightest. Shaw has a lot of bad hidden attributes in any save in this game, most notably that he’s “unprofessional”. Not sure if it’s me being bias but I believe that’s a very very unfair attribute to give him. He’s been the complete opposite of unprofessional each and every time Mourinho threw him under the bus or questioned him on his weight etc. He always came back and gives a 100% each time. Anyway, moving on!
    Eric Bailly:
    Season Start:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Aerial +1
    Passing +1
    Shooting +1
    Decisions +1
    Total = +4
    Another player that I was expecting to take a knock in this save, and once again it’s a player that didn’t suffer from any injuries under IT. A four point attribute gain has seen him develop into a fantastic player either way.
    Victor Lindelof:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Passing +1
    Creativity +1
    Decisions +1
    Positioning +1
    Total = +4
    A two week injury lay off for the Swede whilst on IT. Nothing major and he’s gained in a few vital attributes for his role in the team.
    Ander Herrera:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:


    End of Test:

    Attribute Change: N/A
    Injured on two separate occasions, one a 10 day injury and the other a more hefty three week lay off. All in all it’s missing around a month of football which is a shame and also makes him the biggest casualty so far in this test. The injuries reflected on his attribute change as there quite simply wasn’t any.
    Nemanja Matic:
    Season Start:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change: N/A
    Well that was a boring result!
    Paul Pogba:
    Season Start:

    Injuries:


    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Leadership +1
    Total = +1
    A couple of injuries for Pogba in this test, nothing major but a two week and ten day lay off respectively dents any hope of him improving as a player apart from a +1 gain in Leadership
    Marcus Rashford:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Crossing +1
    Dribbling +3
    Passing +1
    Shooting +1
    Tackling +1
    Creativity +1
    Movement +3
    Positioning +1
    Strength +1
    Total = +13
    A two week lay off at the start of the league season didn’t put this man off improving, as he gains a huge 13 points overall. Is that down to intensive training or is he simply showing his potential either way?
    Anthony Martial:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries: N/A
    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Aerial +1
    Dribbling +2
    Passing +1
    Shooting +1
    Tackling +1
    Leadership +1
    Movement +1
    Stamina +2
    Total = +10
    Same as Rashford really, massive gain in attributes with 10 points gained whilst suffering no injuries. Again, is that IT doing its job or is it simply him showing his potential like Rashford before him?
    Romelu Lukaku:
    Start of Season:

    Injuries:

    End of Test:

    Attribute Change:
    Aerial +3
    Shooting +1
    Decisions +3
    Leadership +1
    Movement +3
    Strength +1
    Total = +12
    A ten day injury didn’t put this man off from gaining huge numbers on his page! 12 points and most if not all are in primary attributes for his role. Being our main goalscoring outlet I had a feeling this would happen as he’s bound to receive better ratings than say what a defender would. This in turn leads me to believe that either the training system is heavily flawed, or the ratings system is, or worse, both. I know what I think..
    Grand Total Attribute Gain: +62 Points
    Average Gain per Player: +5.63 Points
    Injuries: 8
    Total Length: 3 months and 1 week
    Average Length of Injury: 11 Days
     
    Conclusion:
    I honestly thought we’d see a lot more injuries than we did. 8 injuries in six months spread across 11 players is nothing really, and when you factor in that the average length of injury was 11 days then it’s even better. On average each player gained 5.63 points on their pages which in six months is decent going. The real questions will be asked once the results of the other two intensities have been released so at the moment all this is slightly irrelevant!
    As always Vibe I thank you for reading, and please do remember to leave a comment, even if it’s a question. Part Two will follow in the next few days 😁

    Marco Van Basten Challenge

    Credit to @Titjes for creating this challenge.
    Marcel "Marco" van Basten (born 31 October 1964) is a Dutch football manager and former football player, who played for Ajax and Milan, as well as the Netherlands national team, in the 1980s and early '90s as a forward. He is regarded as one of the greatest European forwards and one of the greatest footballers of all time. He has scored 300 goals in a high-profile career, but played his last match in 1993 at age 28 due to an injury which forced his retirement two years later. He was later the head coach of Ajax and the Netherlands national team.
    Playing for the Netherlands, Van Basten won, and was named player of the tournament, at UEFA Euro 1988, scoring five goals that included a memorable volley in the final against the Soviet Union. At club level, he won three Eredivisie titles and the Cup Winners' Cup with Ajax, and three Serie A titles and two European Cups with Milan.
    Known for his close ball control, attacking intelligence and spectacular strikes and volleys, Van Basten was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 1992 and won the Ballon d'Or three times, in 1988, 1989 and 1992.
