I've come back to playing PES on the PS2 after loooong hiatus, and I've noticed that something seems to be really screwed up with the difficulty levels in this latest version. I started a ML with the default ML players at "Professional" level (I used to play WE10 at 5* so I figured this would be the equivalent level in PES 2007). After two seasons I could barely keep my team afloat -- I won just 4 games and had to do a lot of wheeling and dealing just to pay the players' salaries. Towards the end of the second season with a few decent players in the squad I couldn't buy a goal and was getting hammered almost every week. During the off-season I set up a bunch of friendlies against top teams (Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, etc) and bumped the difficulty level down to "Regular". First game I beat Man Utd 4-2. And it was comfortable, too -- I mean I was waltzing through their defence like they weren't there and getting 1-on-1 opportunities almost at will. It was like my bunch of average stiffs had suddenly become Real Madrid overnight. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm a bit concerned that I won't enjoy either difficulty level in this version.
