Longshot Cup

To alert you all, there is a new cup out in four and a half hours time called "Longshot Cup". Victory will give you the new In Form Honda (http://t.co/4hxcJ5Tx) and this will only be available from winning this tournament or paying what would most likely be a ridiculous price on the market for someone else's. You will also only be able to win one each. The catch is that you only have four chances to win (2 online/2 offline) and the offline tournament must be played on ultimate difficulty.
As a Russian League user I'm very excited for the Honda, looks like a quality player, any thoughts on the card or the tournament?

It should be called bullshit difficulty. The stuff they can do. They just give everyone stat boosts. And I just disconnected, so If that has kicked me out of the entire tournament, I will not be a happy bunny. Don't worry about the price. By the time I win this thing he'll be worth about 300. I just need to play the flat back 9.

Does the "Restore Defaults" trick work with this Comp offline?

(i.e.) Pressing Y on the Team Lineups screen to the Restore Default Settings in the Options and it makes the Difficulty Pofessional.

Sadly not, in fact, the whole thing has been patched so it can't be done on any offline tournament.

I've played it myself a bit and playing Barca offline is ridiculous, I work hard for the lead just for Xavi/Busquets to score a stupid goal from 40 yards, then score a god damn sweaty goal. I'd never played Ultimate before, and it's not quite as bad as I expected (saw off L'pool 4-2 in first round) but Barcelona have become like Gods.

Thanks for the reply.

As the "Restore Defaults" trick doesn't work anymore I can't really be bothered with this Tournament.

Ultimate Difficulty sounds like the sort of frustating experience that simply wouldn't be enjoyable, especially if opponents are scoring stupid goals from 40 yards.

Also, the In-Form Honda is only selling for 15,000 to 18,000 at the moment and as more people get him, he will rapidly decrease in value.

Thanks for noting the price, had a look and given I'd fancy a 4-1-2-1-2 I'll probably just buy one, guess I underestimated just how many people would win the tournament. I am considering winning the tournament regardless though, partially for the challenge and partially to make my money back. Too right it's not enjoyable though

Playing Man City in the final. Kompany scored from 30 yards with his left foot. Sigh.

I've FINALLY won the sodding tournament. Absolute torture. Given I only got two shots to win offline, it's the only time I was willing to dashboard if I was going to lose. Barcelona were a nightmare, Busquets and Xavi just score from 40 odd yards with relative ease, score dreadfully "sweaty" goals, or get given stupid penalties... Arsenal were more of the same in the final, somehow Song and Ramsey became like Superman.
I would expect that you will want to throw the controller at the wall at some point.
It IS worth the card though, I've played a game or two with the Honda I bought on the market and he plays very well, a good passer and surprisingly effective at CDM, where I brought him on as a sub when I was losing.

Finally won this cup. 3 1-0's and a dodgy penalty win after a 0-0 against Munich in the final. Really had to grind at this to get it though.

I'm not sure, but I don't think so as the description clearly states you have to get the IF in a pack
