So jump on to have a game..first game against an average player/ average team and what a joy, concrete boots doesn't even come close to how slow and bad it was. Still had about 20 shots to 4 lose 2-0 to random ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Could barely pass, run, seconds delay in shooting, Dybala perfectly aligned taking right foot shots was looking forward to a few games again and a good start but will sit out if this is the way it will play tonight. It is a mode supposed to reward the best but i cannot win games i should due to the connection and gameplay!

How has everyone else found it so far? i am in Australia BTW.

    I have perfect connection every wl match. I lose cause my opponent is better or due to luck sometimes. It feels like it should

    I honestly feel like i am barely able to play at 50% my ability at the moment, shouldn't have but just fired up another and was just as bad if not worse i have seconds delay and pretty much no agility (even Dybala) feels like everyone is jogging and the worst bit is i'm still nearly getting a result which shows how bad the opponents are...so frustrating i feel i will never be able to get the results i should in weekend league due to the connections and matchmaking! i want to play and enjoy it but i have better things to do than sit through games i may as well watch as i have basically no input with what happens :/

    Mate i could only hope for that, it is pretty much the opposite rarely feel i have played a better let alone semi decent opponent my players just do not perform or they are 'given' goals

    Feel your pain OP.

    I retired from WL two weekends ago. Gameplay was horrendous and that's before I get into the PTB, dabs etc.

    I can spend my time casually playing/trading and make the same/more coin than the stress-fest that is WL.

    Nail on the head...you can see how bad your opponent is but the game just makes you cop it. I do a running commentary of what will happen next it's that predictable
  • The more games I play the more I realise there's no point trying to play proper football. Sit back and put musa upfront. 80% of the players I face in WL are abysmal but still get results by exploiting pace. Fact.

    Yeh definitely frustrating i will never mind losing to a better player but i cant even control my own team or players and for the so called competitive mode people are given wins due to the connection or matchmaking. Like you said i haven't bothered or played in a few weeks to a month and traded over the weekends on squad fitness and few position cards with little effort made good profit and not been stuck grinding an UN-enjoyable and widely inconsistent game. I buy decent players but cant enjoy them as they may as well be some bronze GK in every position

    totally useless gameplay. so many goals the useless striker shoot straight at my goal keeper who parries it into the net. goal keeper letting in total trash come back goals, no point playing.

    It is the worst mate, game play and the BS plus peoples tactics can be bad enough as is, when you are basically stuck watching what goes on regardless of input or reading the opponent and have delay, lag and concrete boots it is beyond terrible...

    Yes definitely, game play can be poor but when you face the issues plus people parking the bus with defenders actually inside the box...no words haha

    ha yep! i find it funny how it is usually one team or the other having the 'good' AI. I just want a balanced and even game way too much AI interference in this one

    Yeah they still haven't got the balance right with momentum or it's on purpose. Either way it hasn't been a balanced game where you felt "in control" since like FIFA 09/10

    That's why these park the bus merchants don't notice it as much. Cuz they only touch the ball 5 times per game. Through ball + shot. Oh wait that's 2

    3rd game smooth as no issues win 5-1. 4th game no lag but delay could barely pass and players lacked movement and were not tracking runners leaving gaps everywhere but jag a goal to equalize then a late scrappy winner to take the points..

    Point is the game is ❤️❤️❤️❤️, should have won the first 2 but could not play, then win 1 i should when the game was as it should, then win a game i shouldn't and the other guy was hard done by in the last few minutes... it is the opposite of consistent and the results so far have bar one had no correlation to the actual game or player skill

    The so called pros and 'top' players some of who i have watched do not appear that good i honestly think some are very lucky, yes they are good but also must be getting the benefit of matchmaking and their location plus having a perfect internet or broadband connection which suits the game to a tee!
  • Yo guys when is the best day to play the most WL's matches? Friday, Saturday or Sunday? Thanks!

    I have not played many so unsure what the best day is, think it is a bit of luck as to the connections!

    I have played 8, probably only 1 smooth normal game, still scrapped to win 5 but i is just a chore fighting against the opponent, game, AI, control of your own players etc when the other player appears to be fine and no issues with passing, movement etc just not enjoyable at all and absolutely no consistency player stats may as well change game to game

    The gameplay is horrible today worst it's been in a while only played 4 and won them all but going to have a break and hopefully it gets better as it's really restricting the fast passing, attacking football I usually play.
