All my years playing PES was with a friend, in the same team, playing against CPU (ML). My PES excitement journey ended with Pes2013 which offered for me great gameplay, similar to Pes 5-6. And now playing PES2018 my excitement returned in an unexpected way. But not from the start, giving many chances to a game that seems to be broken. And hopefully it wasn't, for me. Sure there is so much to improve but my overall feeling was great. Pes games are like a seesaw, you must find the best balance to fully enjoy the game. For example, many people, including me, had stated that AI is ridiculous hard on "Superstar" difficult. Playing against ex Wolves is harder than Juve in real life. So to balance this "error" in our first season when we played, only, with lower teams (max 3-3,5 stars) we used "Top player", to learn our team, to learn how to attack-defend etc and basically to not get angry with this game if we played in "Superstar" difficulty. Then when our team got stronger we changed the difficulty all the way to "Superstar".
