Lag on Squad Battles????

As the title asks really. What's everyone's thoughts & experience?

I've been hammering teams recently on Legendary, so thought I'd give Ultimate a bash. All over them first 25mins, then suddenly, my players become relatively unresponsive.

Takes longer to turn, pass, execute any action in fact. Actually felt like I had a bad case of lag. How can that be for what is essentially an offline game mode? Anyhow, I lost 1-0.

Moves onto the next game, this time sticking to legendary. Again, awful. I go 1-0 down after about 20mins, but thankfully take the lead to go 2-1 up on the 45th minute. I then pretty much played out the game to take the win. Again, the whole game felt like I was experiencing lag.

Had I been online, I'd definitely have been moaning about the connection....


A further point also, on an unrelated topic. Whilst I'm raging & all!

I had been messing around with my custom tactics to try & find some that worked. Set the same for the first team & fitness team & went on an amazing run of form, beating everyone online & offline. I decide to send the tactics to my mate, go into them & on one team they'd all reset to 50, whilst on another team they'd gone crazy.

After trial & error, I've managed to get some sort of gameplay that resembles it, but really annoyed TBH. This happened to anyone else?

    Crazily, that second game they were losing 2-1 & had pretty much 10 men behind the ball until about the 80th minute where they pressed. Could've been because the AI took the lead & so they sat in.

    Sometimes though, I play it & it feels like they're doing things just to intentionally wind me up! Like random shielding or suddenly aimlessly running to the byline.

    Yep, I've had similar. My play is set normally so I'm already holding the direction for the player I've passed too before the ball gets to him. Sometimes there's massive delay on the pass button & all I end up doing instead is misdirecting my initial pass.

    To compensate I have to hold the direction I'm passing for longer, which slows down my play slightly.
