So, i am like most people and love using my boring BPL team with the players i love to watch IRL . That made me really dread this last weekend, as i had to go out of my comfort zone and make an all new team! I ended up using multiple teams over the course of the weekend as none of them would click for me!

My weekend league went sort of like this (I am an average player)

Great start with like 9 wins and 2 losses

Terrible run ended the day with a record of something around 10 wins and 12 losses

played another 7 or so games with a couple different teams and managed to get 1 win taking me to 11 wins and 18 losses.

That left me with 11 games to go and i needed to get 7 wins to get to 18 which i usually get pretty easily (only entered around 4 WL's) I won the first, then lost straight a couple. Needed 6 wins from 8. I changed to a BBVA team with IF Ben Yedder in there and managed to win 6 in a row which got me my 18 wins and meant i have gold for monthly!

I am so happy with gold for monthly as i only managed to play 3 weekends this month, and it is the first month i have been able to play more than one weekend! But this weekend was so so stressful and probably the first time i have not enjoyed the WL.


TL;DR I started well, went to pot, ended well, got an average monthly record but finally have some monthly rewards to look forward to!

    Very bad. Input lag was too much. Played 16 and didn't bother then

    It was unplayable, think I went 1-5 then I gave up. Lag was just insane.

    I hope this mornings maintenance was to fix that issue but I wouldn't hold my breath

    Somehow my best WL yet. 27 wins. But honestly, I had some good breaks. Think I won 3 games in the 90th/120th. Only went to PKs once and won.

    gameplay was great on Friday, but I only had time to play 4 games, so went 4-0. Then on Saturday the gameplay was worse, but still decent enough and i went 7-2 to get me to 11-2 overall. On Sunday the game was absolutely shocking!!! I was not even playing good players, instead the game was just as bad as has ever been. I ended up stopping on 18 wins with a record of 18-5. For me, I just don't have time to play all 40 and when the gameplay changes so drastically each day it does not motivate me to play more.

    Nice! I didn't experience lag etc but did really 'meh'

    Maybe you came up against people like me who were salty as they had to use different to their usual BPL teams? :D

    both leagues have crap players unless you can afford the high end players. stopped at 14 wins for gold monthly with 16 remaining games. the weekend league for me has become a bit tiresome, with the bs laggy servers and the time needed to play 40 games.

    looking forward to wildlands and mass effect 3 this month, fifa will take a back seat for the foreseeable future

    I'm just hoping for a change in FIFA 18 at this point, don't see it happening this version

    Gameplay was the worst its ever been. Sundays gameplay was not bad, but Friday-Saturday was a joke.

    The sad thing about what you say is that every year someone says the same thing and it never gets truly fixed :(

    It destroys the experience for casual players

    I woke up at 3:30am my time on Friday (east US) - not intentionally but I was awake and decided to play. The connection was possibly the best I've ever had. Played off and on throughout the day and did get laggier, after dinner was a little tough with the delay.

    Next played Saturday night and it was pretty good. Didn't play at all yesterday.

    I had at least a second delay on input. I lost the first game on pens after a fluke goal conceded & then won 4-0 or something. It was that bad though I wasn't enjoying it, so didn't bother playing anymore. So won 1, lost 1.

    I was on for silver anyway and that's where I stayed.

    Annoyingly, my mate who is far worse than me has gold monthly as he manages to play the games. Well, I'm happy for him, but ya know.....

    Input lag was bad but I liked not facing BPL, don't think I ever faced the same 11 twice.

    It was nice to avoid all the stuff like Bailly and Smalling, Musa etc... But Renato Sanches was starting to annoy me as he is SO bad but always scored at vital times against me

    Nice! Well, not nice, but fair play getting that record with lag!

    I found the average skill level of the players to be much higher than previous WLs, ESPECIALLY on Friday. It seems that everyone with the sweaty BPL teams took the WL off and just left he committed (me) and the really good.

    26-14, started great as usual and then i hit a slump from games 11-25 as usual. Can't seem to get it together and hit Elite. Oh well

    I lost the game without lag. Players felt like they were on drugs, like the gameplay was on 1.5x speed.

    Got Gold monthly and then hit 18 wins and stopped. I'm over the moon with that because I was using this team. :joy:

    It was pretty frustrating at times but it made it even more worth it.

    Played 5, won my first 4 and then RQ my final game 1st minute so that I could qualify for rewards as I was running late and had to catch a train.

    Felt like more people started games on defensive / ultra defensive / counter attacks and in general took less risks because they didn't have their usual BPL OP players to count on.
    All in all I was so happy to not run into Smalling/Kante every game. I hope they instill more run requirements down the road.

    It's funny that I agree, but I had the opposite experience where Friday was good and it got worse from there with Sunday being the worst ever.

    Garbage, the input lag was horrendous i managed to make a cup of coffee in between pressing my buttons to do a scoop turn and the player trying to pull it off.
