Ah yeah! A 4-1 victory for Lazio v PSG in my first online match . Got off to a great start with a goal in the third minute to settle the nerves. The keepers have had some lovely new animations for shot stopping - they look great. Mbappe is bloomin' fast and skillful though .
So, my overall first impressions are very positive. Evolution and not revolution... but slick and impressive. The only drawback for me is that menu selection colour - I can struggle to see it!

There are plenty of signs that, by the end of those three years, this will be something very special indeed - enough, perhaps, to make it truly essential. PES's crown may have slipped just a touch this year, but at its best it still plays a beautiful game of the beautiful game
Also seems to not be working well, judging by some reddit posts. Apparently changes to the file structure by Konami this year have caught them unawares. PTE Patch, the most popular PC mod for correct licences, have suggested their patch will be delayed till the end of the month whilst they update their work for the new file formats.
PTE builds upon the work done by PES World for PS4 option files, which seem to be coming along nicely, as suggested by this tweet from a PES World staffer this morning:
Just played and won my second Online Divisions match... 1-0 against PSG (again!). PSG are gonna be *by far* the most popular team as Konami award them 400 (!) points for a win, versus just 259 for Barca and 274 for Real. 400 for PSG is just ridiculous; I only get 459 for using Lazio!
Winckle wrote:400 seems pretty crazy! Maybe they based that on them not having Neymar or Mbappe?
Maybe, Winckle... but, with Cavani, Neymar and Mbappe there now, they're so good!
After my two-game winning start, I've just had my ass whupped by Real Madrid. 1-6 . The guy was just too smart for me.
I *think* there may be a bug when the final scoreline flashes up at the end of the game - they only ever seem to show a maximum of three goalscorers. You can see the complete list in the stats afterwards, but it seems a bit odd.
