As someone who has been in D1 for several seasons now. I often will boot up the game to only lose multiple games in a row by 1 goal whilst out shooting my opponents SOG 13 to 2.

I will throw a fit. Throw my controller. Punch my pillows to submission. Elbow smash my desk.

Why do I behave as if I am 5 when I am actually 25?

I am on a mission to mature and the treat the game as what it is...a game. Join me fellow FIFA lovers.

    When you realise anything you break costs money to fix you'll soon stop.

    My good friend X. The day of reckoning is upon us. Amazing as I know a majority of FIFA forumers are in this boat.

    I used to do the same thing, back on PS3, on fifa 13/14 i went through 3 pads and broke a gaming monitor(and a finger), actually got to the point that my MRS threatened to leave me as according to her it made me aggressive.

    Anyways, surfice to say I no longer do that, if I feel the rage creeping up i'll turn my xbox off and spend some time with the kids(some things are more important than gaming)

    All I can suggest is to STOP playing when you have those moments mate

    I'm 28 btw

    Fortunately now these moments happen every other game in D1. The way the game is made this year luck plays an entirely larger role than previously. Is ashame. Think it's time I stop worrying about my stupid record or losing. Thanks for the advice :)

    Only way to get past it is to play like a robot; emotionless. When you score, don't celebrate and when you concede don't rage. Play in as much silence as possible. This way, every time you mess up a pass, shot or tackle etc. you just let out a brief sigh and continue playing. Otherwise every time you miss a pass or tackle you'll shout or curse at the game and will start lunging in at every opportunity because you're so annoyed.

    I find I play the best like this since I become really calm and just carry on playing no matter how much BS occurs - although tbf I've never broken anything or reached an obscene level of rage mode so I'm not sure how easy it would be for you to change :D

    The only time you should ever rage is after the game has ended, and you should be fine by the time you begin another game - otherwise you're setting yourself up for a losing streak.

    Haha I am always smiling outside of FIFA. It is very weird. Need to let go of the care I guess.

    Very good words of advice. Will certainly try this.

    Broke about 10 Xbox 360 controllers/headsets, broke 0 Xbox one Controllers/headsets.

    The huge price difference has caused me to take out my frustration on pillows instead of stuff that costs money. I feel there is no way to stop getting frustrated with a game designed by EA :joy:

    I hope it works out for you. Of course at the first opportunity when you experience the typical Fifa BS, you'll eventually want to let it all out - but trust me, nothing is more satisfying winning by playing at your best and knowing you're playing at your best ;) you'll become a much better Fifa player since your emotions won't effect your in-game skill level.

    This is the first year of FIFA I haven't done one of the following;

    Bite me wrist
    Smash my controller
    Snap at other people in the room
    Hit my Xbox
    Snap my cd


    And do you know why? It's because I've not bought any FIFA points.

    I'm being serious as well, when I lose to a crap team, hit the post 40 times and don't score or lose to a 90th minute own goal it no longer bothers me because, because beyond the cost of the game, I've spent nothing else on it.

    In past years I have. Imagine spending £500 on this game, having legends and top players then getting beat 2-1 by a 90th minute Carl Jenkinson header.
    Imagine being unable to beat silver teams after spending £700 on points.


    Don't buy points and it won't bother you in the slightest.

    When I was younger living at my parents I would chuck remotes out the window, punch stuff and act like a general idiot.

    Now I shout occasionally and that's as bad as it gets. It's pretty embarrassing when my missus has her friends over and she tells them I start shouting at a game like a child, so I'm much more calm than I used to be.
