Another question, people seem to be backing out when being matched with me at the first screen, whenever they're picked as the away team...

is this a thing? connection related or superstition?

i always have 4 bars so I'm a bit confused

    All the top players only play at home. ;)

    yes I get that but what's the reasoning behind it?

    Unlike online seasons, the latency for WL games may not be the same for you and your opponent. 4 bars for you might be 2 bars for your opponent, because you're not connected to each other, but separately connected to the EA servers.

    And yeah a lot of people like playing at home because it's a familiar turf. Frankly some of the turfs in the game look horrible – some pitches are a painful shade of green, some have ridiculous shadows.

    It's so the pro players can avoid each other.

    Ah didn't know that. OK then that it makes sense.

    Because they're terrified and spineless and don't want to play someone who may be a Challange, but will happily come on here talking about how they're an "elite player"

    I'm so glad I don't play WL anymore, it's a cancer

    Here we go again with more "cancer" bs, what is wrong with people?

    If you only play at home you can't come against another player who only plays at home, i.e top 100 players. Maybe we should all do it until nobody gets a game then they're forced to do something about it.

    I only ever back out if the latency looks sh*t, whether I am home or away I don't care but if I see less than 3 bars latency I am backing out

    I don't think the latency you have is what your opponent has, could be a thing where you have 5 bar latency but your opponent has 1 or 2

    They don't want to play away obviously. Last WL I played around 5 home games. People just keep backing out.
