Off-Topic / Re: The World Cup 2018
« on: 16-06-2018, 23:06:01 »

This World Cup was to be intended to serve as a complete renovation of our team, departing the "stars" from the 2014 WC, 2015 Copa America and 2016 Copa America Centenario. Our coach, who I think is a big asshole, promised us change but he didn't deliver.

You point out Messi lacks confidence on himself, probably, yes, Ronaldo is a fanatic of himself and he does what he does for himself. Both players had almost the very same situations in their respective games (penalties and last-minute free kicks), one did better and the other didn't. Messi had a bad day and we can't expect his teammates to be of much help, and we pay the price.

I think Argentina will struggle a lot in groups stage and we highly depend on what happens with Croatia, they have a superb midfield but are also more offensive, which would leave open spaces to Messi. We need to kick Di Maria out of the team and have Pavon play there, he did much better in 15 minutes than Di Maria in this match and the whole Qualifiers together.

Anyways, this edition is Brazilian, if they do just fine, they'll win. Germany comes in second, the rest are watching imo.

Argentina looks a bit of a shambles. You need a decent team as a springboard for stars to shine and they do not have that, although I think Messi has done heroic work getting them to the World Cup so I think it's unfair when people say he's useless as an international player. In their pre-WC interviews, some of the Argentine players were talking about how they hope they will be "worthy of Messi" or things like that. It just seems like there is a really fatalistic attitude there.

Argentina is in shambles, overall. From football to economy, from society to politics. The National Team is a realistic reflection of what we are now: Sad and Desperate.

There are good talents that can be called instead of the burned out "stars" like Aguero, Higuain, Biglia, Mascherano, Di Maria, Banega and others...

Something is going on inside the team, sampaoli went a couple of times to watch Lautaro Martinez, a former Racing Club player now in Internazionale, it looked it he was going to receive a call-up to be the reserve CF, a young talent who did very very well for Racing and also the Argentine U-20 team. He decided not to call him for whatever reason, he did the same to another Racing Club player, Ricardo Centurion, who is quite a polemic fellow, but has that gift few players in the world have, huge balls.

Well, he did call Martinez to play against Italy and Spain this year, he didn't feature in the Italy game and he came in from the bench against Spain when we were losing 4-1 already...

We were expecting change, swapping Higuain for Icardi (as he does better in Serie A and his Juventus counterpart, plus is a fresh player), Di Maria for Acuña (Sporting player, he did REALLY WELL when Argentina was desperate against Venezuela in the Qualifiers, he plays in Di Maria's position but he has been transferred to the left back position..) he could have kept Lautaro Acosta who did just fine, Gomez from Atalanta, Garay (best Argentine defender in the 2014 WC) is nowhere to be seen...

Something's rotten inside the team, Sampaoli is here to preserve the team, the names. Acuña could have EASILY benched Di Maria but he was moved back to a position he is not naturally adapted, Centurion could have easily benched Di Maria also, he was to be called but wasn't at the very last minute, Martinez wasn't called as he would take the CF position easily.. benching Higuain.


I see a pattern here. AFA is corrupt as hell and they might want to milk the famous stars for one last WC for that sponsors money.



There are two great Argentine coaches, Pekerman leading Colombia and Gareca leading Peru. Both should be clear candidates once we kick Sampaoli out (who has a millionaire contract also), but they won't be called. Why?, because there is no clear idea on what to do, no Youth Program or any kind of project to develop new players, we leave it all to luck and "see what happens next". That's also how we run our country...

Pekerman and Gareca are hard workers, but we prefer Sampaoli for the "scientific phrases" he often says. Bullshit, I hope we reach the finals and lose 4-0 to England, that'll hurt our pride big time.

Watch the Qualifier games that Argentina played without Messi and enjoy that horrendous 0-2 defeat against Paraguay in which Aguero was absolutely SHIT, among other games that almost costed us a World Cup qualification.

Messi had a bad day and we can't expect his teammates to be of much help, and we pay the price.

However Spain and Iceland are very different teams imo. Iceland did indeed parked the bus, but not in a "anti-football" way like, say, Greece, but in a smart way. The still played on the counter and executed them pretty well, they shown that the Argentine defence is bad and weak, but the Iceland team had great discipline and were very organized overall. Spain is different, they attack more so they are prone to letting some players through. The quality varies, of course, with more spaces Argentina would have won, it was smart from Iceland to be conservative, the moment they decide to switch to a more offensive playstyle they would have lost.


Still, Iceland wins 1-1, I can't hate the guys. I wish my team would play with that passion and discipline.

I think the only thing that would make Fo76 playable are Roleplay servers, strict RP servers. Otherwise it looks meh to me. Sad.

Total lack of respect towards the C&C Fans.

Never been one myself, barely played Generals, but there was no need to revive it only to humilliate it.

Then if he is on the right side of history, by including strong women with iron arms killing nazis in early WW2, then what is Battlefield 1942?, no women is included in the game, does that mean the BF 1942 developers were all anti-women and that all of them were part of a far-right movement?, no... neither were Doom developers having a male main character being super strong...


I never felt the urge to have a male Lara Croft, or a male Jill Valentine in RE games, BFV is a fictional, very fictional game about a historical conflict.


Again, I wouldn't be surprised if they deleted the name of Hitler from their game and gave the Germans black soldiers, which would make the Nazis look as a tolerable kind of people...

My brain is dead, being politically correct in excess is BAD. Teach her about the important role of women in WW2, that they did their job very very well with great passion. There's no need to tell her a lie, because the game is lying right now.

I feel like DICE is trying to make this political when the community just wants a fucking Battlefield game, making this controversial is good for them after all, people are talking about their female soldiers.

Oh FHSW.. it's still one of the most underrated mods out there...

Nobody talks about possible modding tools anymore eh? Love how Dice got away with it..


That is, for me, the biggest insult towards the community... People modded far more difficult games.

I'll do you one better;

The Reveal Trailer is a good example of this, as it depicts the frantic fights in Northern France in an unexpected time period, early in the war. You’ll experience iconic WW2 elements such as paratroopers dropping from the sky near a mission-critical bridge. However, this time it’s part of the German offensive on the British positions along the Escaut, which later would lead to the dramatic events of Dunkirk.

from; https://www.battlefield.com/news/article/ww2-as-you-have-never-seen-it-before-battlefield-5

So keep in mind that the trailer is depicting the fighting during Fall Gelb around Arras :o

Hey but they nailed it with the Bf 109 paint scheme...

Churchill 3inch Gun Carrier???

I mean, it existed, but it's rare as it did not see any combat...


This could tell me that they'll go full experimental assault rifles that were crafted by Hitler in his wildest dream..., Something like BF1

What a masterpiece this game is. I follow it blindly, I don't care how terrible it can be sometimes, every minute spent on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a well spent minute.

I'll reinstall windows soon and I'll give Call of Misery a go, or perhaps the Last Day addon to see what it's like...


But yes, I fully agree Stalker lives on it's atmosphere. I play with everything disabled almost, literally no HUD at all. So I don't know if I'm being seen, and man the game became 100 times more scarier. Hell, even taking a long walk in a foggy rain in Cordon makes me crap my pants from time to time.
