I swept through the mid-season transfer window here in Season 4, picking up two youngsters of note: T CAHILL (for his heading, hopefully); and K HONDA. Both are just 17 and not much use right now. I am investing for the future – of which it seems there will be a considerable amount.
Currently about 15 matches from the end of Season 4 in PES2019.
I am not going to get promoted this season.
The table after 31 matches:Yes, that’s me all the way down in 15th.
Superstar is absolutely kicking my backside, hard, every match.
I started this season the day after last week’s patch landed. I started on Top Player, which suddenly felt very easy post-patch.
My record on Top Player at the start of the season: W8 D0 L0.
My record on Superstar since I changed up: W3 D6 L14.
Leading to the overall position above.
I have considered going back to Top Player – and I did go back, for one match.
I was 3-0 up by the 30-minute mark.
I couldn’t have that, so I quit to the main menu, reloaded, switched back to Superstar – and lost the fixture 2-1.
It’s Superstar or bust. Even if I have to stay in Division 2 for many seasons to come. I cannot, in all conscience, drop back to Top Player and its guaranteed comfortable wins.
I might one day consider Top Player, with manual passing. PA0 remains one of my great undiscovered countries in PES
I dunno, though. I am excited about the prospects for PES2019’s longevity. This is shaping up to be the most epic PES year since PES2012. It now seems certain that I will have a double-digit amount of Master League seasons. This hasn’t happened for a few years.
Is PES2019 shaping up to be something of a classic? Way too early to call, but it’s got a chance.
