EA ignores manual players so we as a community have to finds ways to all congregate in the same place.
I think we can take another issue we have with the game and use it to our advantage.
We know FUT is broken.
We know "SEASONS" works.
We also hate that when we play seasons "EVERYONE" plays as RM or a handful of other 5 STAR teams.
The first step in my long term plan is to change where manual players play FIFA and get us all playing in the same place so we can easily find each other every time we log in.
We spread the word and agree that all manual players play FIFA "Seasons" as "exactly" 3 STAR teams.
Why 3 STAR? Because its like a channel on your radio that is open and available that nobody uses.
Have you ever tried to search for a manual opponent? The only thing harder is searching for a "exact" three star opponent.
Put the two together and we suddenly are all in "OPEN" space at the same time.
Once we establish that norm then creating a "World Manual Championship" will be a natural progression of that new home for manual players.
