Love the Online FIFA Community ... not really

Was hanging out at home tonight and thought I'd take a run at the DKT even though playing online makes me throw up a little in my mouth... I started the DKT at 9:55 PST which gave me 65 minutes to get into a Final so odds were slim anyways.

Game 1: Played a guy with almost an entire Man City team who basically held the sprint button down the entire game and spammed long through balls. He went up 2-0 on me in the first half and then I slowly chipped my way back to a 3-2 lead. I then went up 4-2 in the 82nd minute and around the 89th minute... you guessed it!... he proceeds to use up all his pauses in a row and waits for each one to count all the way down to elongate the game.

Game 2: Played another decent player and was up 2-1 in the 90th minute when I got a breakaway and scored to go up 3-1. This guy of course was as nice as the first guy and proceeded to use all his pauses in extra time for their full duration right in a row to waste time again.

Game 3: Actually a decent game and managed a good win - can't remember the score but I believe 2-1 was the final

Game 4: Despite my two time wasting friends from the first game I managed to get a match in the Final with thirty seconds left in the DKT... went on to win 3-2 in extra time to qualify.

In that whole stretch what made me crack up (and sad at the same time) was just the sheer immaturity and dickishness of the first two guys to literally waste time and try to ruin a chance to qualify for someone else. This community just gets worse and worse every day - half the reason Online sucks is the actual players and their attitude.

    It is. It’s been getting progressively worse each year, the need to try and win at any cost has destroyed the game. I remember at the start of UT and for a good few years after messages of “GG” were common. I actually sent a “GG” message to someone at the start of this year after, what I thought was a good game, I lost the game, I received a message back with a handful of expletives telling me how bad I was.

    The game is toxic, the players are toxic. The entire thing has just nosedived with people trying to be he next gorilla.

    You had plenty of people doing the 3 pause thing from the start of last year, so this is no better/no worse.

    Rage messages - nothing new

    People playing to win - nothing new

    It doesn’t help when EA encourage them, let’s be real most people who play like a **** get rewarded for it with some 90th min BS and such.

    It really is. Compared to a few of years ago it’s so much more aggressive in the frame of if I can’t win what can I do to make you don’t win or at the very least not enjoy playing. It’s so pathetic.

    Probably the thing I hate the most.

    Well gorilla pauses at the start of the game, not the end. But I agree is still time wasting.

    Early this week I decided to give my team a spin in Divisions.
    I'm in Div 8 btw coz I just cba to sit and claw up with how online is.

    Come up against standard Prem sweat with Prime Costa and Prime Peter Schmichy.
    Guy goes 1-0 after 15 IG mins.
    What follows, I kid you not.
    He pauses, changes to a 5 atb, then goes PTB with Counter attack.
    Everytime he got the ball, lob down wing, get either Sterling or Sane to gallop down touchline, Cross it in.
    Rinse and repeat the whole freking game.
    Game ended 2-2 btw.
    But that was 1 of the most frustrating games i've played in a while. Would have quit but didnt wanna give him that satisfaction

    I been saying it for awhile. remove game pauses. best thing for this game. we need automatic subs mechanism. Football is the only sport in the world with live game time, theres no pauses... I mean im glad they finally added a queue, that was a step in the right direction but its only the tip of the iceberg. remove it all together...

    Sorry you had to go through that OP, I agree with you... online is very toxic... what gets me is the ones that send you rage messages even after they win... calling you expletives ect... never understand it. take the win n move on.

    One thing worse than a sore loser, is a bad winner.

    Noticed this entitled attitude, that people should quit at a certain score, creep in since the introduction of futchamps.

    Usually 3-0 you get a request to pause so you can leave. Id rather stay, only way im gonna get better is playing better players. Not smashing people every game.

    Amen to that. FUT is full of people who believe they are entitled to a win, not a game.
    I never quit a game, even when getting murdered. Why? Well I'll always try and learn something from bad loses. It's an opportunity to try a couple of things against a better player. I find it baffling that people expect you to quit.
    stupid stuff like the pausing, and certain in game tactics have gotten worse over the years, and yes, FUT champs has made it worse.

    You shouldn't let the way another person plays get to you, 50% of every competitive game is mental. When you get frustrated over what you perceive to be cheap tactics. You're giving your opponent a mental edge.

    I've knocked off receiving messages from people I don't know. I love the fact that so many folk will have been typing a load of BS to send on only to get the box pop up "This user has blocked messages from other accounts".

    Bliss.

    Xbox now has a pop up message? Always seemed that messages would appear to go through on the senders side, just that the other person wouldn't receive them.

    Never had someone use their pauses up on me. Might be the way you play that infuriates them.

    This. I did these pauses 3 or 4 times in around 200 games. Every time was because the opponent started wasting time in the last minutes. Like taking 10 seconds for a throw in or 15 for a corner. Pretty sure they had all the time in the world so a couple of minutes more was not an issue for them either.

    They can still get your username after the game has finished and find you to send a message.

    Never understood people who quit when they're getting well beaten. I'm awful so I regularly get battered, if I left - dont reckon I'd ever finish a game!

    Sometimes is the lag. No reason to stay in a game with lag if you are getting beat. Even if you win I don't think is a good way to spend the time.

    You don't get better at the game with constant lagging.
