They've already done the update?
If you have Xbox live and play online, dont play Jungle540Boy. He is a quitter and I played him USA vs. USA online ranked and he quit at the end of the game and somehow made it to where it showed up the game was not played and i did not get the win. LIVID!
There is no Jungle540Boy
When I downloaded the new squads it had the current MLS squads plus a whole host of new players.
I mean on xbox live... thats his s/n
it was a joke saying he didn't exist, mainly due to the lack of a win for you, and he's only in your head.
Great. I haven't tried downloading the new squads yet - apartment wi-fi acting up. I'll try and solve it this weekend. How are the stats on the new MLS boys?
i've always started the game in Professional until i get a feel for the changes and nuances and then i move up to World Class. not this time. i can keep possession and put together attacks just fine. but when the match is on the line it just feels like i cannot stop those bastards. even mediocre players can dribble around like neymar on crack and then split the defense with a perfect pass. and just try to get the ball off their foot when they are in behind or shoulder to shoulder with your defender. i've said before it feels like there is a force field around them.
there are many great advances in this edition, like shooting from distance and close control. but defending is a right mess.
yeah when I edit a player and change his stats to a 99 including dribbling and everything why can`t he do 5 star trick moves?
Most of them are the same. I mean Brek Shea took a tick up or so but no major changes that I noticed. Just a whole lot of new players added recently. Basically all the drafted players are now in, new offseason signings, new homegrown players etc
This is good news. I just bought the game a few weeks ago and was working on updating the MLS squads but I realized I wasn't going to be able to add enough players because of the 50 created player limit in the Creation Centre. I'm going to re-set my rosters and d/l the update tonight.
Although the MLS rosters are now updated for the most part, the uniforms are still from last year.
were they supposed to change?
I'm not sure, though it'd certainly be cool if they did.
I don't think so. The fact of the matter is for MLS fans is that FIFA games come out essentially after each MLS season. FIFA 12 is actually MLS 11, and FIFA 13 will be this season for MLS.
It's just a fact of MLS's summer schedule. Sort of like how MLS champion's league qualifiers from the 2011 season won't actually play in the champion's league until this fall, after MLS's 2012 season is almost over. Heck the weird thing is that if an MLS team went to the final it wouldn't be until 2013, a full two year's later.
Even if they don't change the kits it's still great that they did the roster updates.
There may be a way to update the kits yourself. They may have a tutorial at soccergamingforum.
I downloaded a Montreal Impact squad and was going to make a "New York Cosmos/Orlando City" with players who transferred out of the league after last season and didn't land at a team included in the game.
Couple of things that "really grind my gears" - I'd say about 85 to 90% of the headers anywhere around the 18 yard box are won by AI on xbox in career mode.
AI in general has really never been addressed in xbox beyond a certain point. It seems now that EA's M.O. is to increase difficulty by adjusting the playing attributes for my players downward. Sprint speed being an easily identifyable example.
Really wish that they'd spend more time on AI rather than taking the lazy route.
YES!!!! I've been screaming this at my TV for ever now.
I last night I played the US vs Germany on legendary. Granted I lost, but it wasn't because Germany out tacticed me. For example when Onyewu (who isn't a technical player at all), picked up the ball in the corner facing the goalline, the German player upon seeing ONyewu touch the ball backed off and let me play the ball with all the time in the world out of the back. Instead when the Germans got the ball they could just slalom at will past all my players as their agility, acceleration and speed were unstoppable. No tactics, just simply going around my traffic cones. This would make sense considering the US isn't as good as Germany, but it also happened with my Arsenal career mode team that had 85 plus defenders everywhere.
The AI has no tactical brain whatsoever.
All that happens when you go from legendary to world class to pro is that the CPU team gets faster, stronger etc.
What I'd like to see is when a player like Josh Gatt has 92 speed or whatever, that he can run by a left back with 75 speed rather easily. But if the difficult is turned up the CPU should recognize this and adjust their tactics and positioning through out the game.
When difficulty goes up the CPU should get smarter, not just quicker and stronger.
I'd also love to see my own players make creative runs into space and have intelligent movement but.......
I'd just like to see them stop coming up with B.S. "improvements" like 360 degree dribbling (I don't recall ever saying to myself "it sucks that I can only dribble 180 degrees), improved passing (Since when does a graphical meter improve my passing?), tactical defending (Tactical defending is far worse than just sitting back in passing lanes. It doesn't work to the player's advantage IMO.) and just really address AI for once.
Something I don't like about the game....why the hell won't my players move to the ball to receive a pass?
I make a pass to a teammate and they just stand there and wait for the ball to come to them.
Except the ball doesn't come to them, because the defender just moves right in front of my player and helps himself. It's asinine.
I recommend selling the piece of $**t game back to a game store or a poor sucker who thinks he's getting a deal. That horrible game is not worth the stress, even for a footie junkie.
Are there patches for the game as far as downloadable teams that are missing (China, for one...)? I feel like I keep reading about them but can't find a link for these mysterious unofficial add-ons.
I've noticed this from the start. This has to be a common complaint they'll resolve.
this song should be in the next FIFA game its soo good. and they love using good music.

I really wish they would just release a soundtrack with all 30+ songs on it. I hate having to download them illegally (not really). But still, it would probably be in the top 5 for best selling soundtracks of the year.
Holy crap, so it's not just me.
1. Mediocre strikers dribbling like Messi. I sometimes CANNOT BELIEVE my defence: the AI just slaloms around them.
2. Players not moving into the ball. OMG!
Just glad that others are experiencing this, too. Was annoying the crap out of me: I thought I just sucked at defending.
Anyone else notice Professional level is HARD, but when you move to World Class it's not too much of a difference?
On a final note I still love this game and think it's TONS better than FIFA 11.
