    I just don't play anymore mainly due to the fact a stupidly high % of games that I play will lag, and drain all the fun out.

    It's in EA's best interest to sort this out considering I'll pump a good £50 into the game to get me going, and bits throughout the year. Now I just don't see the point as best case scenario, I pack Ronaldo or I have enough coins to use the best players, but lag will make using them pointless.

    I can't be the only one like this.

    Thanks for your posts @Ibelvaux and @barnseyblade.

    Only other thing to try is to delete the game data on your game profile (keeping your online-pro data etc), switch users (log out) then log back in with your original user, to load your original profile back into the game. This is on the PS4, so not sure about xbox but there should be something similar to this.

    Also after my conversation with a guy from EA tech help a couple of days ago regarding this ongoing issue, one of the things he advised is to have upnp enabled on your router - last year on FIFA 15 we were told to disabled this because of some underlying issues. So worth putting this back on and giving it a go, once I done this I noticed I was getting a lot more home games, but more trialling needs to be done.

    Thanks all.

    The thing is if it was anything to do with settings on your router h2h would play the same every match is fine on h2h but lag/sluggish/button delay on UT. 99% of my matches im the home team.

    Yeh I agree, I've changed my router config literally hundreds of times - a lot of the time to make no difference at all. EA are now advising to have upnp enabled, the opposite to last year on FIFA 15.

    I don't think the upnp will make to much difference to lag, but possibly to the matchmaking side of things, hopefully... Erasing data (be careful) may help if something is corrupt or alike, and this may help with the gameplay. I tend to give this a go when I'm suffering and at times it does improve.

    just to add mine is worse since i got a better connection, albeit I'm now on WIFI not wired but my other devices connect with no issues and I can download music etc at light speed.. my thoughts on it are that the person with the stronger connection suffers because they are awaiting responses from the slower connection all the time.

    what's your net speed ?




    Could you guys post your net speeds just for info ?
    curious about this

    I'm on 60 Mb/sec

    my ping is 28

    download is 49.18

    upload is 11.49

    just now on speedtest.net

    test your ping with EA servers though
    make ping test in cmd

    how would ping the EA server in CMD, surely you would have to know the IP to do that?? i ping printers all the time at work to confirm they are online but i know the address of them

    They've acknowledged it - getting it corrected is another matter. Personally I can't make EA fix it, but I guess the more the community raises these issues the better the chance is of this being corrected. Which is the message I'm getting from the people at EA who I have spoke to.

    Just went and turned on upnp again and played a match in the silver cup i was the away team for the first time in mths i think the latency bar even flickered orange but went ahead anyway it was laggy but compared to the sluggish gameplay it was unreal i could tackle, find passes, shoulder charge, turn, dribble have sent a few messages to the other guy he says he had NO lag'' My game was pausing what i would call real lag'' Have asked what speed of broadband he had and where he was based but hasn't replied yet ''probably getting scared'' :)

    When did they acknowledge it?
    Sucks in the UK tonight. Mega judder and lag in the 3 games I could be bothered to play.

    The upnp is what EA are now saying to have it enabled - opposite to what they said for the last FIFA. So it's worth doing this, we have to believe them. It's worth doing the "delete profile data" side of things (be careful though), for me this made the biggest difference, but only sometimes, why sometimes I don't know.

    I've had these issues for years on and off (since about 08-09), they acknowledged it then.... The last time being now, last Monday I spoke to EA about this and told them exactly what was happening. He believed me and I did manage to get through to a 2nd Tier Tech, but there is no way he could fix the issue as it is down to the developers of the game. I was encouraged to come on the forums (which I already was) etc. The more people who are having these problems need to contact EA and let them know. Also add to these forums, as I'm sure people from EA are watching these and taking note. The bigger the issue it is and the more widespread it is, I'd hope EA will act sooner to solve it. They want to see numbers of people effected.

    I would say a good 7 out of 10 matches are absolutely horrible to play. Everything is delayed, can't even do a ball roll in time to avoid a tackle. I find the lag the most frustrating thing about this game, other than that the gameplay is pretty good in my opinion. I would be happy with the 60 USD I spent for this game if It did not lag so much.

    It's even worse if you play with an Online Pro as a GK or defender...

    Played 4 games tonight , lag and button delay so bad I had to come off before I smashed something or someone. So frustrating .

    But this game is totally unplayable.

    Ea biggest joke company out there imo.

    I can deal with every other aspect of the game just fine. I have no problem when I lose a match to a better player. The single most frustrating thing about this game is the constant lag. All of the other FIFA games had lag, but this one hands down has been the worst. This is also the first FIFA where I have not even purchased FIFA Points to buy packs with, I can't bring myself to pour any additional money into this game because of the lag.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I would actually love to lose a game on a smooth connection to someone who is better than me. Instead of the constant **** laggy games where you can't switch players quick enough , can't fake shot. The lag was even that bad for me today I missed a penalty because the stutter step didn't work because game was too laggy it didn't register it. Absolute joke of a game. Anyone who spends money on this **** is either rich, stupid or both imo.

    Nothing to do with that mate, I play my nephew who lives 5 minutes away and we both get button lag despite having pretty decent connections.

    Never thought it possible for EA server's to get worse, but somehow this utterly pathetic excuse for a company have managed it.

    Surprised you get button delay on pro clubs, my lag problems are only on Fut.

    Can play every other mode as smooth as silk.

    I am on virgin and I have exact same problem. In 10 games I would say I play 1 person from the uk. Bit that isn't the problem at all because usually the person I play from the uk is a worse connection. Just doesn't make sense.

    Guys chill....i contacted them too several times..changed the console and all in vain... for me this is the last FIFA I will ever play....

    Anyway...i don't see the need for a connection bar....means nothing because they are not measuring the lag, only if you are connected. With full green bars for more then 20 seconds...same **** lag...

    Past 100 games 90% were laggy and the rest playable if you have the nerve to stay....

    Uninstalled the game 10 days ago and monitoring forums if something has changed. Its too frustrating to play with a lag so i just gave up until miracle happens...it wont.

    It's ridiculous how consistently problematical this is. Doesn't matter when you play, at least 50% of game time is affected.
    Perhaps EA could tell us what they consider to be a tolerable ratio of disruption? @rob????
