Yeah, I've always stuck with 'basic', Dice'. I *think* I did try 'Advanced' once and, like you, I wondered what the hell was going on :lol: .

I've now completed 100 online (Online Divisions) matches with PES 2019. Generally I've stuck with slightly "lower" ranked teams (i.e. with a match win award of 500 to 650 points) but recently I've switched to Arsenal... and my results have been pretty dire :? ... :lol: .

100 games already :shock: Out of interest how does that stack up against how many games you played in the last version? From memory I think I was between 150-200 so 100 since release sounds a lot!

I haven't picked this up yet but I think I'm going to wait for a digital sale and get the digital version so it's there on the hard drive, as it's a game I'll play throughout the year. I did briefly consider switching to FIFA this year, but after playing both demos a few times I found Pro Evo to be much better.

I checked, 'pip, and for PES 2018 I played 381 matches in Online Divisions. P 381, W 115, D 94 and L 172. Not a fantastic win record but I was playing with "lower" teams for a big chunk of that. That's my excuse, anyway :lol: .

Yeah, I've bought the digital version since the 2014 edition (six editions now!) and I love the convenience. PES 2019 was in the PS Store sale last week (at £39.99) but it's back to £49.99 now.

So far on PES 2019 I have played 121 matches in Online Divisions; P 121, W 31, D 42 and L 48. Again, I have played the bulk with "lower" teams but, for the past dozen or so, I have played as Arsenal. Did ropey at first but I'm on a three-win run now. About time!

My playing style probably is more "hard work and commitment" than "silky skills" :lol: .

I've been changing teams from match-to-match and now I'm gonna set myself the challenge of picking a team and playing through an Online Divisions season just using that one team.

And that team is gonna be... Lokomotiv Moskva. I'm currently in Online Division 8. Each win will net me 508 points but it's gonna be challenging. Will I survive? Lets see... it all starts here!

The journey begins!

Inter Milan 2-0 Lokomotiv (down 9 to 491 in rank)
Lokomotiv 0-1 Olympique Marseille (down 10 to 481)
Man City 0-3 Lokomotiv (default victory as opponent disconnected :? ... up 12 to 493)
Lokomotiv 0-2 Liverpool (down 7 to 486)

...this isn't going well :dread: .

My Lokomotiv journey continues...

Brazil 1-1 Lokomotiv
Lokomotiv 1-1 Napoli
Lokomotiv 0-1 Liverpool
Tottenham 0-0 Lokomotiv

So, with one match to go my record is P9, W2, D3 and L4. I need a victory to gain promotion to Online Division 7!

Strawberry-floatin' hell!!!

I led Lokomotiv to a 0-1 defeat against France. Edged the passing, possession and shots on target... so floatin' unlucky. Ah well, it was a gutsy effort from Lokomotiv.

After that, I'm still in Online Division 8. Gonna pick a fresh team for the next season!

Okay, okay, I get it... you guys want to hear more - much more - about my PES play. I'm about to start a new season in Online Division 8... and the team I'm gonna stick with is Defensa Y Justicia of the Argentinian league.

This is gonna be tough but, hey, JUSTICIA FOR JAWA! :toot: .

Justicia 0-2 Man United
PSG 1-0 Justicia
Justicia 0-1 Juventus
Man City 1-1 Justicia

First points... whoop! A tough start but I knew it'd be a challenge... we'll keep plugging away. Go, Justicia!

Wow! Gecko has contacted me to say that this thread is one of the most popular in GR; apparently there are hundreds of GRcadians who check in to see how my Online Divisions journey is going :o .

I'm honoured and I don't want to disappoint... so I'll load the game up now, play a few matches and record my scores here. LIVE PES ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT ONLY HERE IN GR :toot: .

:wub: ... :toot: .

Justicia 0-1 Liverpool
Rangers 2-2 Justicia (Gutted; created lots of chances and should have won this one!)
Arsenal 4-0 Justicia (Blew me away in the first half; great player)
Justicia 1-4 Chelsea (MASSIVELY pi**ed off! Brought it back to 1-1 and was playing great; then they got a fluke goal on 87 mins and, with me all-out chasing the game, they got another two in added time :-( )
Justicia 0-1 Liverpool

So, I HAVE to win my final match to keep Justicia up in Online Division 8. Valiant performances so far... but that's not enough... I MUST win now.

Final match of the season: Atletico Madrid 1-1 Justicia

I had 10 shots - 6 on target - against their 7 shots - 2 on target. They equalised on 90+1 mins with an incredibly jammy deflection. I am pi**ed off.

Anyway... Justicia are relegated to Online Division 9 :( .



PES :wub: .

It's a new season... with a new team.

I'm in Online Division 9 and I'm gonna use Sevilla. A higher quality team than my previous ones... but will I perform any better? I'll keep you posted. Keep locked to this thread!

PSG 5-3 Sevilla (Incredible game. 1-0 up... 2-0 down... 3-2 up.. and lost. Great match, but PSG scored 5 times from 5 on target... I got 3 from 7 :( )
Sevilla 0-5 Arsenal (So... I've let in 10 goals from the last 12 shots on target... what is my goalie doing!? So frustrating)

Olympique Marseille 1-1 Sevilla (7 shots, 5 on target... should have won)
Sevilla 0-1 Fenerbache (Seriously starting to think that I've run over Konami's cat or something. I'm on a TERRIBLE run!)
France 4-0 Sevilla ( :? )
Sevilla 0-4 Liverpool (The more I play, the worse I'm getting :? )

Palmeiras 1-2 Sevilla (A victory at last! 8 shots, 6 on target... should have been far easier than it was)
Sevilla 0-1 Olympiakos (Officially on my worst-ever run in PES. Gonna take a break)
