It’s been a while, since the last post, I thought it about time that I fired up the gaming PC and put season 5 of my Spurs PES 21 on modded PC, Master League to bed, for now at least.
I will reiterate once more that these five seasons, abnormally spanning over a much longer time period due to various circumstances, have been one of, if not the most enjoyable ML campaigns I’ve ever played on any PES game, not of course due to the amazing ML mode itself, but due to the superb PC mods that completely transform the aesthetics, presentation, and immersion of the game, enough to put a fairly waterproof plaster over the ML cracks.
So, recapping from my last post a good 6 weeks or more ago, we finished the season fifth, which was disappointing, and the early poor league form really costs us, but we won the FA Cup, and now found ourselves closing the season out with a UEFA Champions League Final against Athletico Madrid, in Istanbul at the Ataturk Stadium.
Extended highlights of that match are below.
And that closes off this ML, for now, as we know PES is pretty much dead, even in name, the complete farce of a product Konami are sending out next week is not PES, in any way shape or form, they’ve sold out to the casual mobile phone gamer, so this modded PES 21 really is the last incarnation of a true PES game we will ever have, I might bury it in a time capsule and bury it under the hot tub for future prosperity.
We will see how the year unfolds, footy gaming wise but its nice to know that PC PES 21 and its fandangled mods, will be there if i ever need to fall back on something.
So, without further ado, lets see how the UCL final played out:
A nice way to finish off this chapter, European Champions and a double cup win in season 5.
We definitely rode our luck throughout that game, a cagey, nervous start saw us give the ball away in midfield way too much and invite pressure on, Athletico should have been 3 up by half time, lady luck was on our side, epitomised by the nature of our goal, but we will take the win, and the glory.
Upon checking the club rankings I had taken Spurs up to 7th best team in the world, behind Liverpool, Man City, PSG, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid – Pretty decent company.
Now, with all things PES put to bed, and the official release of FIFA 22 just days away, I am set to start a brand new Career Mode, I am as of yet, undecided on whether to start with a Championship/League One side and work my way up, try to take a Premier League team to glory, or use the new ‘Create a Club’ feature in FIFA 22 which allows you to make your own club, with kits, and stadium, and turn them into world beaters Master league style, too much of a nod to nostalgia not to, surely?
Let me know in the comments what you would prefer to see for the new season’s posts.
Future posts may go live on Mondays, as I now host a weekly House music radio show, which I perform live, on a Wednesday night, which does not leave me any time to play, capture, and prep content for a Thursday post.
