Every year it’s the same

Every September we get excited about the new FIFA. Folks with the beta are loving it and it feels fresh. The game comes out and the gameplay feels different from the year before in a good way. A few new features and extras with the new gameplay and you’re happy with your purchase. Then they patch it and make it more similar to the year before. Then people figure out what’s OP and how to exploit the broken mechanics of the game. Then 3/4 games are against ultra D and counter attack. That 1/4 ends up being an entertaining back and forth match and that keeps you coming back. Then you concede 3 kick off goals in the next game. Kick off goals, counter attack, inconsistent fouls and inconsistent AI defense and goalkeepers. Ridiculous lag and unreliable servers. As much as each game improves it’s always the same issues. I don’t really have a conclusion so there you go. My thoughts.

    Honestly for me granted i got the game after the patch but for me I'm doing extremely well granted I'm only playing single player but compared to last year the game plays better than last year but hey this is just my opinion

    Completely agree. Was loving it. Now it’s just...meh. It’s not bad but certainly not as good as it could have been. Part of that is down to people figuring out the broken aspects of the game and exploiting but still.

    Game is **** trash, pretty pissed off at the state of it even this early. I was enjoying SB but for me now both main modes are feeling very broken as to the quality and amount of control I have of my players...I don't know what's wrong but its that bad its an absolute joke

    Ngl I don't enjoy playing this year online at all

    SB and the fact I've been pretty lucky with reward packs and trading are the 3 things keeping me going even this early

    I'd gladly play squad battles all year but the servers are so trash I can't even play without worrying about disconnecting

    I really enjoy squad battles but i've been trying to delve into online recently - Its driving me insane - Im not seeing any progression either - Im just as trash as when i started trying to play online. I barely survived division 6 earlier when im an elite 1 squad battle player

    In fairness I havent had a single DC in any mode in almost 300 games(i said I didn't enjoy it, not that I don't play it :joy:)

    If that starts happening I'm done

    I've been elite 1 every week in SB in all but the early access week, first weekend league I got bronze 3 because I couldn't be bothered to play, last I got gold 3, but I simply can't get out of Division 7, I just get trounced by either insane teams that shouldn't even be there or by 10k meta teams that play better than anyone I played last weekend

    Online simply isn't fun for me anymore, hasn't been since WL was introduced, you used to be able to play some online singles with fun teams and even there you can't, it's just pure meta and dabbing(not that it annoys me but come on, it's a bloody singles game), I can't and won't adapt to that

    It was fun before the patch - Shame its back to involving 0 actual skill and just down to who can abuse the game flaws more again

    Actually yeh I agree with that, it forced people to actually have to play a decent line because any shot in the box was a goal, which led to more expansive football being played, I wasn't big on the 6-5 scoreline and obv we never had a FUT Champs with it but I did appreciate the way the game was the week of release even if I was god awful

    To add another note, they reeeaallly need to fix the save mechanics on pens. If the goalkeepers don’t save anything when you dive the right way then it’s useless. FUT Champs needs to be golden goal if they can’t get the pens to work properly.

    Not had one kick off goal scored against me online. I had one scored by the ai in squad battles though. Ai cheats more than humans imo.
