High pressure, 59% passing and the 37% possession is apparently enough to win. Play beautiful, right Pelé?

    The "play beautiful" slogan was probably the wrong way to go. Should've stuck with just "play".

    It's annoying losing these games but if Arsenal can beat Bayern with 30% possession, no reason why it doesn't happen in FIFA as well.

    Its not that bit that gets me. Its the lack of etiquette afterwards. Full celebration and then we need to see the replay, after 35 attempts, the one time theyve managed to walk through your players or its rebounded back to them several times. Very annoying.

    If thats how they enjoy the game, fair do's. But rubbing it in? Low blow!

    @FC Intl why not taking a break for a week? Focus in trading to cool down a bit.
    Maybe your "Passion" will come back

    What like Sheffield Wednesday who beat Arsenal 3-0 with less than 30% possession last night. Face facts that is happens!

    One of my many 0-0 draws in this game. I hit the post and his keeper made two incredibly saves as usual.

    Hey FC Intl, what formation do you sport? I recently switched to 4312 thanks to dunk with all mids with great all round stats and H/H work rates - just don't know what your budget is. Really just trying to help out.

    Ever since I started using that formation, I've won about 80% of my games. As everyone else here knows, I hated the game before that.

    Give it a try if you'd like. That, of course, will change nothing about the fact that there will be games where you just lose to an absolute noob whose Diego Alves turns into a Casillas/Neuer/Buffon hybrid.

    Do a few mins of advanced shooting skill game. Gets passing and shooting timing better before starting a game. If i dont do my shots are everywhere

    I beat my record 2 weeks ago 38 shots on goal 31 on target 70% of those were inside the box - his keeper saved everything, finesse shots I tried everything then he shot from far out in a rage it hit my defender on the head and went in, my defender was only just inside the box - his only shot all game - I sat back and laughed, you just could not make it up, the game just didn't want me to win. That's when you realise how this game really works

    I understand your frustration mate. I was on a 7 loss streak a few days ago, everything I did just didn't work. In one game, I hit the post 5 times, with one of those shots going from one post and hitting the other before being cleared. So many of those games I was up a goal and lost it in the final 5 minutes of the match.

    Sometimes when I play, and most people who are on a losing streak do is that I go on tilt. I begin sprinting with my players, making stupid attempts at tackles and letting silly goals in. I've learnt now that if you start losing a few games, STOP. Change your formation, team or go practice in the arena.

    After my 7 loses I went into the advanced drills for 20 minutes, changed my formation to something similar to what I had and now I'm 9 wins 0 loses 1 draw in division 2.

    Also what might help you like it helped me is changing your camera to Co-op. Being able to see the whole pitch is such an advantage!

    Hope these pointers helped mate. Good luck.

    Only in Fifa you get people claiming they should have won as they were clearly better than the 'garbage' opponent.

    People never learn

    Just had another ziggy zaggy opponent. Was 2-0 up, including a stupid penalty. Of ofcourse there was the zigzag goal. I punished him by passing on own half from 50th minute on. If they wanna show how great the zigzag is i can show how great the passing is of the backline.

    I feel you. I sold the game and went back to playing FIFA 15. FIFA 15 feels golden compared to FIFA 16.

    Don't be fooled, they get the same, there just so far up EA's backside they are blinded. Sad but true

    Just let the AI defend, I gave up defending for a while, now I am gradually going back to manual, but I use the CDMs or CMs and sometimes the LB RB. never switch to CBs they will zigzag and hit you. since using this tactic I've started winning. I've noticed that most players that I have a hard time beating are doing the same. to counter it, shoot from outside the box.

    I guess you right but I still have a hard time trusting the cb to do something an at the last minute switch to disasterous results

    You don't need to trust him completely, just let him slow down the attacker until you get another player, like the CDM or LB/RB to help, keep your defence in formation for as long as you can.

    This costs me a 90 minute. I score in 89 min, to get lead 1-2. At kick off, the guy just uses the one player to ziggy zag through my entire team and scores to draw

    Online trash + exploits game flaw + game flaw is they have increased chance to score right after you score = undeserved goal. Rutter's drama in action.

    In the real world, it is known as demoralising waste of time because all your effort is undone by one cheap exploit move.

    @Korthan have you tried playing good players and getting tips to improve instead of just blaming the game?

    Been playing 4231(1). I'm not doing that bad actually, it just is frustrating as hell that poor players can be protected by 17 saves from their GK, and one of their 13 blind 60 yard through balls finally gets through and of course scores.

    Others who are suggesting that the opponent must be better because he won must be delusional, poor players are constantly being bailed out on the game. Players that should literally be embarrassed do often come out on top- And it's not because they are better.
