Thanks, I've been able to unlock the Classic XI team and a lot of historical kits. I have antoher question, as I'm still far from being skilled with this game: can I use the historical kits in the online mode? Now they are unavailable... I can use them only in the offline matches...
An aspect I
don't like is the fact that I normally choose the substitutes before every World
Cup match, but then, when I have to make a substitution during the game,
I discover those players I had called up are not in the bench. It seems
the computer decides automatically the players who stay in the
Not sure about the kits, the matches I've played have only let me use the most recent kits of the team (so for tournament teams, no qualifying kits, although opponents seem to be able to manage it). The substitution thing is annoying (alongside the fact that there are only 7, and that they play squad numbers over 23, the game's biggest realism problems for me
) but not a huge deal due to no-one really pausing for substitutions, breaks up the flow of the game a little.
My biggest problem with the online mode is how some football players are ridiculously overpowered, or rather, how game players use that as a crutch to help them win. My attempts at playing a team game with the likes of Chile/Peru/Sweden/Japan are often undone by the abuse of sprint speed / long-range shot power of Ronaldo/Bale/Ibrahimovic/Rodriguez (the last one conveniently occurring after the World Cup).
For the record, I did take the odd shot from distance with Ibrahimovic without a goal to show for it, but think I hit a balance by trying more of a team game (they're probably better off this way, I saw Sweden play in the flesh this summer and 'Ibra' was anonymous). My personal best and only successful long-range goal in this game came in the Scenario Mode as Colombia, which you will hopefully be able to marvel at below. I like to keep record whenever there is a goal worth keeping record of:http://www.easports.com/uk/fifa/football-club/2014-fifa-world-cup/media/PS3/mattsanger92/fwc_2014/video/192905141
