First and foremost, i believe EA/FIFA should have a thread or a page where you can provide feedback after a title update/patch.. because ppl will come here and create unlimited number of threads and things just get lost in time if they're not tracked.. so, this has to be centralized.
now onto the feedback and it's only concerning 2 major things, because everything to do with gameplay is adaptable.
1-How removing the badge and club name affected us (at least our region)?
The different ISPs we have in the region uses different technologies to get their users on-net.. The issue is, some of the neighboring countries uses technologies that gives you high download/upload speed with high latency.. so on FIFA they will show green latency, but the game lags, jitters, etc.. We, gamers in my country, try to avoid matching up with those type of connections.
So, how do we avoid those connections or gamers with laggy connections that shows "fake" green latency? well, we rely on latency bar pattern, badge and club name (i could provide more details about that if it's required). those are 3 things that are linked and shows you who you're playing against. However, what we've noticed on FUT Champs connections, is when you're matched with someone that has "fake green", which showed red for a while, amber and then goes green gradually, once you quit and do a search again and you're matched with the same person, that latency bar will immediately show green and will not go through the same pattern earlier. So, this will look like a legit/good connection to play with, but apparently not, because it's the same crappy connection.
We acknowledged an FUT message regarding the Champs saying they have provided servers to our region. Well maybe they did, but it seems like those servers (being it physical or cloud-based), reside in those countries high latency... this really aggravates most of the players, Xbox and PS, because it would seems like we're handicapped almost all the time.
2-Latency bar, new connection pattern?
We always try and understand how the bars work because it helps us identify fake greens, but then, with the new bars extending to 5 (from 3 original), we can't seem to find a pattern.. we thought this should be more accurate, which i totally understand, but apparently not. 4 bars showing green feels almost as amber (2 bars pre-patch).
in Divisions, we suffer from being matched with neighboring countries that has high latency connections. We rarely have a good game because only the few that would have a stable low latency connection.. everyone almost stopped playing divisions because of this, they all turned up to Champs, which had the same issues in the beginning, but then later introduced the regional servers that should have fixed our match-making, but we benefited the least.
the very minor issue, after the patch, i'm unable to see team of the week page (on the console). it just shows blank as if it's an empty squad.
I really hope someone from EA reads this, or the message gets over to someone who can consider this..
