    Yes, it's Friday, Saturday and Sunday. that's 13 games a day, only 4.5 hours a day. I understand that's a hell of a lot of time for some players. But even with a weekend job and a girlfriend (some people find having a partner is a problem? :# ), I could still manage that easily.

    thats a lot of time to commit every week

    I know but I'm just breaking it down, but that much commitment, in the eyes of EA, deserves a big reward. I'll be happy with 13 or so wins a weekend. That's still a tidy reward for say 22 or so games played.

    people seem to forget that they are not in the audience EA aims for with the Fut champions mode. its a competitve mode, and most competitive players playing the game all day long every day every week every month every year, see it as a job like yours.

    I think only a handful of players can really see it as a job. You'd have to be top 100 to make a living....... unless you are a top twitch streamer.

    To be able to manage that easily ain't normal bro.

    Define normal?

    24 hour day, 6 hour sleep, 8 hour work, 1 hour travel, 2 hours at home to eat/housework, 2 hour chill with the bae (yup, I said bae) ... That leaves 5 hours to myself?

    lol 2 hours with girl and 5 hours on fifa....you need to get your priorities straight

    not even 1% of competitive players earn enough to call it a job...

    Like some other guy said, its only 4.5 hours a day, thats like 1 hours game play with 3 hours rest and repeat it like 3 more times. Whenever a new FIFA is released, Im on it pretty much all day anyway. If youve got commitments eg family, kids, work etc then I guess thats just life right?

    But remember. If you're not working and spending time with your partner 100% of your life then you have no life. Smh

    Why does it even matter? You do not have to play 40 games. You could play 20,10 or even 5 games if you want.

    Exactly! This is why so many games get dumbed down because of complaints over CHOICE.

    If the max games was 25 or 30 the best prizes would be less. Let the option be there for those who, for whatever reason, get the time.

    May be a weekend where it's pouring with rain and wifey has decided to settle down to a marathon Coronation Street bonanza. Who knows.

    Bottom line.... vast majority will never play 40 games. Doesn't matter.

    Bottom line vast majority won't spend £1000 on fifa points. Doesn't matter.

    Just play what you want/can play.

    You guys do realise a lot of people will quit a lot of games when they're 2-0 down? As only wins matter...if I'm struggling for time whilst playing on a weekend you can bet your bottom dollar I'm quitting out of a game if I'm getting slapped to finish as many games as I can.

    Because the prize brackets would be changed to balance over 25 or 30 games instead. I'm not under the impression that if you only play 35 games you'll get nothing.

    Basically, if you won 18 of 30 games. You'd get the same reward for say winning 25 of 40.

    There will definitely be more rage quits in this mode I think, it's all about quantity of wins not games completed or w/l ratio. If you're getting smashed, you're better off quitting if you're short on time.

    40 games in 48 hours.. EA why are doing this? I can't physically do it... I mean i have a life and I play fifa for fun! so you want us to stop going out meeting people playing in the park and instead sit at home for very long hours playing FIFA!! this is unhealthy and irresponsible I think if you made it 72 hours or cut down the number of games it would make more sense..

    It is 72 hours, if you want to be the best, you gotta sacrifice something. Life's a trade-off mate. :wink:

    It's something we'll have to wait and see. You don't have to play all 40 anyway, in-fact you don't have to play at all. 40 max is fine, I'm sure some would say anything below isn't enough. wait until the game is out to form a proper educated opinion.

    If it was changed from 40 to 25-30 matches, then the prizes would be different and not as good.

    People shouldn't complain about the 40 matches. Just play as many as you can and collect your reward. Every reward is pretty good IMO. You got nothing to lose.

    EA forgot that people have lives. 40 games is way too much, especially if games can go into extra time and penalties. You're better off quitting if you are getting beat than playing the game out. 25 would be more reasonable in my opinion.
