Season 10 is well underway. That’s Season TEN.
PES2019’s Master League is the first to reach double figures for seasons since PES2015 – which made it to 14 seasons in the end. Will PES2019 equal or better that? It’s got a great chance of doing so, despite the game’s recent lurch toward the arcade side of things.
A big reason why PES2019 is showing longevity is the great start it had. I’m bedded down in the game and have a Master League that I want to see to a conclusion.
It took Konami 3 months or so to cave in to pressure and twiddle the knobs to make PES2019 faster and more flowing the way the majority of the online contingent likes it. PES2019 is now not much more than just another nuPES instalment. No fouls, poor player individuality, and much too frantic much too often. I sincerely hope whoever makes these decisions at PES Productions tragically falls into an industrial mincing machine.
I scratched together enough pennies to get 1 big new signing, and he was quite a doozy.
Step forward Javier Mascherano from the Free Agent list.
21 years old, he seems set to establish himself in PES2019’s twilight seasons. My search for a truly legendary DMF continues. A legendary DMF in a nuPES game is a contradiction in terms, because so much of legendary DMF status in any PES is the ability to pop goals in from long range, and nuPES is hostile to long-range goals. Gotta love that online balancing act.
Thanks to regular commenter Paul – currently of the FIFAFX parish – for these new Season 10 kits. Home on the left, modelled by R Jarvis (he still gets the odd game, and nearly always gets a goal, despite being a creaky 70OPR now). On the right is Mascherano celebrating a goal that someone else has scored, naturally. DMF goals in nuPES are… eh, I’ve already done this bit.
I’ve played 8 matches in the season so far. I’m not badly positioned for a title push, but I said the same this time last year and that didn’t turn out well.Look at that table closely. What’s unusual about it? That’s right – bloody Huddersfield in top position with the most peculiar record I’ve ever seen. 6 wins and 2 draws. 7 goals scored in 8 matches. 0 conceded.
I’ve checked their current roster and other than Regen Samuel Eto’o, they haven’t got anything special. Time will tell if this is just a strange fluctuation in the ether.The Europa League has got underway. I really do want to do well in this tournament. Nice to see Rangers in the group. Shame I won’t get to play them at Ibrox.
A little minute-long goals trilogy now, all on a theme: 3 goals scored in off the post. (All goals scored before I updated the kits for Season 10.)
First a lovely aerial through-ball from Mascherano for Castledine to hit on the half-volley. Then a breakaway move against Man Utd to seal a 2-0 win – Danny starting it off with a delicious outside-of-the-foot through-ball. And finally a nice 20-yarder from Buonanotte, with his native left foot. This youngster is 81OPR now and has forced himself into the first team. The new Shimizu? He’s got a chance.
