master league is ridiculously easy. i've finished my 3rd season and topped league with a 3-1 victory over utd, 4-0 victory over chelsea etc.
gunther is one of the best ML youths.. by 3rd season he has 96 body balance lol. get him and a decent cb and you're good to go at the back. for 10 seasons. i have kaiser, shaw, gunther, bianchi (konami ml youth), park chu young, audel, oreelano, rowland, kremer, hong yon nam, etc.
im dissapointed at how easy it is this year. my first season was BRILLIANT in D2.. i just about got a respectable finish (no promotion) and i thought this would be a great longterm ML. then i got promoted on the last day in my 2nd season. however, as soon as i got to the first division with a bit of reputation and a decent squad, no one was that hard to beat. teams aren't ruthless infront of goal and the same tricks can get you goals. whats really dissapointing is the AI doesn't use its player to their fullest capabilities e.g. ronaldo in 3rd season is a GOD (99 attack, looooads of reds) yet the computer doesnt use him very well. its annoying how easy it is to beat your man... 2 quick direction changes and any lb/rb is beaten. cutbacks are still the easiest way to score goals. people talk about fifa throughball but cutbacks are just as bad for PES (lol not that the computer uses them very well ;D)
