PES Matters 3rd February

As we move into February, we slowly edge closer to the first new noises about the new game.  I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not quite done with the current one.  I’m still focusing pretty much solely on the single player game.  I just can’t muster the energy to do battle with the whole online experience.  From the clunky interfaces for quick matches, to the de-moralising games against cheats.  The game has descended into how well you can exploit the online methods of sure-fire goals, rather than playing football.

Which kind of got me thinking.  Is PES alone in you having to adapt to a game’s core mechanic to excel? Do other games you play force you to almost adapt to the system by learning as many exploits as possible to win games?  Is that acceptable?  Are you the sort of person for whom the ends outweigh the means?  Or like me are the means paramount?

Would you rather play ugly, effective football and win, or play entertaining football and lose?  I’d like a game where playing entertaining football AND winning was a possibility.  But perhaps I’m being too harsh – is playing well and winning possible on PES?  Please do step in and set me straight if I’ve got it wrong.

I’ve not got on with the online game and just won’t go back to it in its current guise.  The real question is will there be enough radical change to the online experience in the new game to warrant going back?

There is a general consensus of feeling amongst the hardcore element that we’re not really being listened to.  The new ideas presented to us in PES 2013 weren’t communicated, and as a result alienated more people than it should have.  As yet, precious few details have been communicated, and I fear the same pattern will re-occur.

But if Konami are reading this article, then I sincerely hope they start the charm offensive very soon, and with key players  from the fans to deliver us a great game.

Anyway, we’re going to be looking to run a series of competitions over the course of the year to drum up interest in the site.  To kick this off, I’m starting us with a new competition to run for the whole of February:

Print off our logo here, and display it prominently for maximum coverage at a busy place with you in it.  The prize money is yet to be determined, I’m working on it, but that’s no reason for you guys not to get cracking!  The most entertaining/well located picture will win, so good luck with getting inventive on that.

Just send your entries to my email address.


Thanks for reading

    Dear dougiedonut you sound like a sore looser.
    you first say how you just like to play entertaining football and then complain that you have had enough of online play because of the way other people play to win at all cost online? thus proving it is you who wants to win just as much if not more.
    you say one thing but your actions say something else.
    be honest, you dont like being owned so you dont play online thats the real reason, not the crap about how its just not fair cos you want to play football your way and win but you just keep getting stuffed online so blame it on glitches and cheats hahahaha you make me laugh out loud you bogus fool!!!

    i find this winning at all costs arguement relly quite odd, it’s along the same lines as the scripting aurgument.

    scoring goals is the whole point, the game sets the parameters. there is no easier goal.
    you can’t score every goal after 1000 passes.
    is sgoal from a corner easier than one from a free kick.

    the only problem as i see it =and i ONLY play online is the high back line that you can’t make sit deeper.
    but thats a problem with the game not the other player.

    lagging is all together different but i’m sure that’s not what you meant with the question.

  7. Really nice pattern and great subject matter, hardly anything else we want :D.
