On this week’s episode, Valerio goes 40 – 0 in FUT Champs, we finally get EXPOSED in every way possible, Chappers smashes a monitor (WTF mate?), we debate L2R2 dribbling and the power of shielding, plus we talk about the necessity of a spectator/broadcaster mode , take your sexy questions, and so much more. Don’t miss this episode!
Spectator Mode and Broadcaster Mode In FIFA 18
We talked about a spectator/broadcaster mode a lot this week. If EA wants to grow the game as an eSport and expand its audience, this is a must have feature set. Every single eSport game has had at least a decently functional suite of tools designed to enhance the viewing experience.
And as we all know, pro FIFA play can get pretty dry to watch. What do you guys think? Would you use a spectate or broadcast feature? Let us know on our Twitter, right here right now.
The State Of L2R2 Dribbling And Shielding in FIFA 17
Another massive topic that we cover this week is how absurd L2R2 dribbling and general shielding gets. As you’ll hear Valerio point out, there has never been a recorded instance of a player ice skating on the pitch in real life like a player in FIFA. Does L2R2 have a place in the game, or should it be banished to the fiery pits of hell?
Speaking of L2… that shielding though. As we come to a close on FIFA 17, it’s to reflect on how this button has transformed the flow of matches this year, for better and worse.
Pre Game Stats Screen
In PES, the game tells you what your opponent’s tendencies are as you get into a match with them. If they like to counter attack often or play possession, you’ll know. Kind of like a real scouting report.
However, this screen causes a huge divide on the podcast when it comes to FIFA. What do you think though, should players be served scouting reports on the opposition or should have to figure things out as you play?
