I played I think 8 games of Online Divisions last night and really enjoyed this. It seems more of a refinement than a massive leap over the last version but a few things stood out as being improved, like goalkeeper behaviour and animations, and shooting.
My record playing as Everton was W4, L3 and D1 (I think) so not a bad start. In all my wins i scored at least 4 goals which was great, but I struggled with defending in some matches. I played against Liverpool twice and they seemed particularly good, my defenders were constantly under pressure and their front 3 (particularly Salah) were difficult to get the ball off. I lost one of those 3-1 and drew the other 3-3.

Same here, thanks to 2 ebay discount codes I've got God of War and Spidey on their way. So, will prob hold off a little longer. I've been playing the demo online, so will hopefully be up to all your standard by the time I get on!
Lokomotiv Moscow 4-1 Liverpool PSG 2-0 Lokomotiv Moscow FC Sion 0-1 Goztepe Goztepe 0-3 Netherlands Arsenal 1-1 Juventus Liverpool 0-1 Eibar Gunghzou Evergrande 2-2 Olympic Marseille
I had my backside kicked whilst using Goztepe against Netherlands - my opponent ws a good player and exploited the superior speed and skill of his team - but I delivered terrific performances in those last two matches, snatching victory at Anfield and roaring back for a draw against Marseille with two goals in the final ten minutes. In gaining victories / draws with a few weaker teams, I earned enough points to go up in just these seven matches.
Just played a couple of matches in co-op mode with diceman. It was terrific fun; the play was slick and, as we we playing as Liverpool against Kuwait, we had a bit of a laugh banging in plenty of goals. I would deffo play the mode again :-).
A new season and I just scraped enough points to stay in Online Division 7. Phew!
Al-Hilal 1-3 Leicester City Barcelona 1-0 Gent Arsenal 1-0 Gremio Aston Villa 1-0 PSG Liverpool 3-1 Estudiantes de La Plata Sporting 1-5 PSG Arsenal 1-5 Frosinone Besiktas 1-1 Red Star Krasnodar 0-2 Juventus Liverpool 1-1 Arsenal
It was cool to play the online co-op last night, dude! After playing a lot of the single-player mode, it takes some time to get used to... knowing when to switch players is crucial! Discovering the play-style of others is a learning process, too. We did pretty well, especially as we faced some high-ranked players.
Our team selection was randomised (albeit I think it usually assigns the better teams to lower-ranked co-op players such as ourselves) but I noticed that we played against some teams that didn't look the best on paper but they were MyClub teams in which the players had signed all the big names!
Yes those were some good games. I think we started to click more in the last game, one of the goals was a great team effort. I'm blaming the 5-1 loss on that other player who joined us for one game His own goal certainly didn't help

... . Dang, 'pip, that's tough. I guess the git was one of these "internet speed manipulators" who can slow the line down and so the match is abandoned? You gotta bounce back, dude .

I just gained promotion to Online Division 6 for the first time in PES 2019 . Not boasting (but boasting etc)... I did it the hard way, too:
Arsenal 2-0 Colo-Colo Aston Villa 1-0 PSG Cruzeiro 0-1 Juventus Man United 0-1 Saint Etienne Liverpool 1-0 Udinese Guincamp 0-1 Juventus Ajax 1-1 Ajax Shalke 0-1 Ajax True Bangkok 1-0 Man City
Finished with a record of P9, W4 D1, L4... and as I was playing with realtively weak teams, I gained enough points for promotion without a need to play the tenth match. That final victory with True Bangkok earned me 817 points .
