Still waiting. So tired of this. I can barely find an opponent in this game. Why is this?

Kind of makes the game pointless for me, can't play it.

    Since there's no acknowledgement of this problem so far, I'll wait to see if there's a patch/fix this month. If not, doing a chargeback on my credit card for faulty product.

    I'm (reluctantly) willing to deal with the silly gameplay, but if I can't even play the game then it's just a faulty product.

    I have the same problem. Especially when I'm in the semifinals or finals. Good luck with that faulty product stuff lol.

    It's not luck, it's a option with credit card providers. Done it before on another game. If a retailer won't accept a return on a faulty product (as is the case with video games) then, depending on your credit card provider, you are protected and can get that money refunded.

    You have to stop playing the game though to show you are declaring it as not fit for purpose.

    Oh you know the solution to this is to buy some fifa points that gives you 24 hours of instant matches :)

    Same here. Couldn't find one in Seasons or Tournaments after 20+ minutes of searching.

    I've even opened all my ports and switched my NAT type to open. Still can't find matches consistently.

    EA expects everyone to have a super fast connection with a PING of 1ms.

    The main problem is when switching to no under matchmaking does not work like it does on fifa 15 how long does it take this dumb company to take notice and fix a simple issue?
  • It's May not work for you all but try resetting your router, every time I struggle to find an opponent I do a reset of my router and it fixes it and finds players quick for the rest of the day. Annoying I have to do this everyday but it fixes it for me.

    I did that over 10times it doesn't work.

    EA only wants to match people with 3 green bars. I don't know why they even added a matchmaking setting option such a dumb company seriously they're a joke.

    Have never had a problem with matchmaking this year, but that sounds terrible.

    It would be impossible to "show" you are not playing a game. Regardless, I've done this with a different game a few years ago and know exactly how it works. I'm not a fan of getting screwed out of money, and I make sure things are put right if need be.

    Anyway, I'm not playing it, as I can't get a match.

    Not the case for me. I have been matched against opponents while only showing 2 bars. Those games were fine. I am in Canada and though it does take a few tries sometimes I can usually find a game quick enough. I had a bit of trouble early on, but thenot I adjusted the setting to not restrict match ups to opponents close to me or whatever they call it. Gameplay has been mostly lag free and I can usually find a match.

    How would you know what I do with my bank?

    I didn't say I'm threatening to stop playing- I want to play. And if the product continues to be broken then I will get money back. Done it before. Will do it again.

    Cups and single matches may as well be eliminated from the game, it's a wasteland

    Matchmaking is very poor this year.

    Odd to be honest.
