since the official announcement of FIFA18, FIFA17 is now more unplayable than ever before. I think this is all planned. By making FIFA17 even worse than it was already, it now reached the point of being completely unresponsive even at 5 bar connection.
I think EA changed something again in order to hype up the desire to pre-order FIFA18. These instances happened also in previous FIFA titles. Whenever a new FIFA was announced, the current FIFA got worse and worse.
It all makes sense though: FIFA Points sales are decreasing since FIFA17 is coming to an end. Now, more revenue has to be generated through other ways. They are very intelligent to generate revenue. Really have to appreciate their business minds.
This WL was the most unresponsive I've ever played since its inception. Finished top 100 the week before. But the last WL had a 1 second button delay in all 40 games, reaching 33 wins nevertheless.
Today I played seasons hoping to get fluid gameplay at least in this mode ( which usually was the case). But even there, at 5 bar connection, the gameplay was completely delayed. Players always take 2-3 extra touches before they pass. Direct passing is not possible anymore.
The only thing that works in FIFA17 right now is to hold the L2 button whenever you have the ball. There is no other way to create chances anymore, I seriously don't get it.
Can someone of you tell me your experiences with respect to what I stated? I think it's not too far fetched and makes perfectly sense from a business point of view. If FIFA had competition, FIFA17 would improve over the year, but a monopoly can abuse its position.
