Play Toxic

The biggest problem with online play is not gameplay related. Its the fifa community in general.

Whether you trade or not, a successful way to accumulate coins is to play seasons. What this results in is a large proportion of the community using win at all costs exploits and a total disrespect/disregard for their opponent.

The fact is, EA could do a lot to erradicate this. For a start, remove the inflamatory shush, calm down etc celebrations.

Secondly, a 'no replays' option would be a nice touch agreed before going into games.

Also, a less severe hit on your dnf modifier should your opponent quit, maybe that way more etiquette would be observed.

Whats everyone elses thoughts?

    id settle for people not being ❤️❤️❤️❤️ when it comes to kit selection and simply pressing the button to skip the cut scenes

    Agreed.

    For the replays, they should make it so the replay requires only 1 player to skip. If both players want to watch it, then it will play, otherwise if one player wants to skip it, the game will skip it.

    Yeah you can watch the replays after the game for as long as you want so there's no need for them during the game.

    There will always be something in the game or what someone can do to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ someone off so it doesn't really matter.

    It's not just FIFA, it's online gaming and the general troll/gloat attitude prevalent among boys.
    Let's be honest, we all enjoy a troll/gloat, just not necessarily ALL the time and in as poor taste as possible.
    Horses for courses imo.

    Main thing I look at is the way FIFA almost encourages it with certain celebrations and the inability to skip your opponents replays. It's beyond me why these things are in the game. You can't even skip/neutralise your own players default gloat anymore. Tevez makes me cringe every time I score and he cups his ears.
    Or dances like a drunk uncle.

    My biggest annoyance on FIFA is the putting players on the line from set plays, I can just about cope with the awfully annoying celebrations and watching replays usually, but putting a player on the line is a joke, I am not the greatest free kick taker ever, but I like to make sure I have a good set piece specialist in all my sides however everyone just runs straight to the line meaning the only free kicks I do score are the unstoppable perfect ones, or against friends

    I had a game very recently in which my opponent scored a good free kick vs me with Ibra as I didnt put a player on the line as it was a good fair match up to that point against a good player, two minutes later I got a free kick in a similar position only for this guy to block it on the line........ he went on to beat me in gold cup final

    I actually have a bit of insight, title of the thread will be the catch-phrase for FIFA 17.

    EA has to give up "Play Beautiful" as it was stated as misleading.

    Aside from the odd player that has some dignity, the people who play this game are the lowest of the low.

    Yeah that's easily countered, I usually wait for them to put somebody there.

    And replays are fine this year, appropriately short. I'd still prefer to skip, but won't complain if they don't.

    At least this year the attackers do try to take advantage, but it's nowhere near the benefit it would be irl. First thing you would do is stand two tall players right in front of the GK so he can't even see the ball.

    I only become toxic if they were already toxic. I always skip replays no matter how good the goal was, if only some of my opponents did the same. If they score on me and celebrate like an A-grade trout then I will do the same back. If they message me and attempt to get under my skin they will cop a beat down.

    Yea this is the type of attitude that contributes to the problem. Good job.

    when someone acts like a ❤️❤️❤️❤️, it actually makes me try even harder. earlier tonight i went down 3-1, then 3-2, then 4-2, and he celebrated the 4th goal (a BS deflection) like he won the world cup. he then paused the game twice, then proceeded to do the fancy passes every time. there was about 15 mins left in the match and i scored 2 goals in quick succession in the 88th/90th minute. it felt good.

    this game really is toxic garbage, from the broken physics/collision engine to the cut screens (where the ref slowly paces over to you to give you a stupid yellow)

    i have no hope for fifa 17 either, tbh

    If you think seasons is bad you should try draft.

    As far as the replays go, they are shorter than they have ever been :joy:

    playing seasons is not a reasonable way to make real coins. u can average at most 7k-8k net profit per HOUR of gameplay. thats awful compared to almost any trade method

    trade for coins play for fun
