4 games now I’m not even trying I’m just doing it to do the challenges
3 formation switchers lol
And all playing like thier life depended on it I’m even moving my players out of the way to let them score to make my intentions clear from the start and one guy dabbing up the pitch and watching reply of a goal I gifted him

    There's no casual modes anymore. It's frustrating for people like myself who enjoy using silvers and non-meta players because every game mode is filled with those sort of low-lives.

    I’m having a giggle here to myself thinking exactly the same this game has some amount of rotten apples

    They giving good pack rewards though
  • The try hards infesting this game is now unbearable. Played a guy in singles match that had Del Piero, Hernandez and Rui Costa upfront and he still bronze benched me, formation switched and ran around the back line with the guided missile known as Bakayoko whilst the AI defended.

    Can't they have a version of the game with no rewards for more casual players? Would love to play with a team like my old school german inform silvers like the good old days without getting smashed 5-0.
  • Experienced exactly the same. Was letting them run down the wings, pulling my keeper out of position, even kicking it out for corners for them to score headers and when they did score, shushing to the camera and watching the replay. Pretty sure they had no idea I was trying to help.

    The worst thing is so many players with legends and teams costing 5 mil in single matches and bronze bench with the lowest level bronzes so they can play teams far weaker than them because they can't compete with teams their own level its pathetic lol

    Same, retired after 17.

    FUT for me was exploring the database, building teams from every league, dozens of single nation teams. Finding hidden gems and having loads of fun. Hands down the most fun I ever had with FUT was with silver and bronzes.

    Look what its become. Gold only, mostly EPL, formation switching, PTB, discards 4x their price because of SBC. Bronze and silvers nothing but SBC fodder. Ultra competitive must win in every game mode, pathetic childish celebrations. And people spending hundreds of pounds on this ❤️❤️❤️❤️, despite knowing EA has lowered the card weights to near impossible levels.

    A great game destroyed by greed, profiteering and commercialism.

    I hope one day we get a game that's about playing for fun, not for profit and virtual materialistic gain. R.I.P. FUT.

    I am loving playing the game with my team atm

    Bravo
    Wallace Oliviera - Azpilicueta - Tuanzebe - Schlupp
    Cleverley - Chaudary - Williams
    Ince - Austin - Kennedy

    7 silvers, I only use the golds as anything less than a gold keeper is just pointless and Azpilicueta as a bit of steel. But other than that I am winning and loving it when my 60odd rated Chaudary is dominating Bakayoko. People must by crying when I put their rinse and repeat teams to shame :)

    Had this same issue on PS yesterday, tryhards making me watch replays and cutting off passing lanes after I give them multiple goals by spamming offside trap. One guy told me he didn't know I was trying to do the challenge and was just "messing around" despite doing all of the above and passing around the back the last 15 mins :D

    Played a 10 player icon team last night. Prime Rio, Roberto Carlos, Schmeichel etc. They had IF Pereira at RB and bronze benched just to beat my crappy ❤️❤️❤️❤️ team

    I have a good opponent and we both let each other score.

    It's 7:6 and I think both of us are happy.

    Played four games for the weekly:

    2 of them, pause, switch to 4231, counter-and-through-ball pace abuse, etc etc.

    1 of them, guy defended like his life depended on it, got a lucky counter in the 42nd minute, dabbed, paused and switched to 5-2-1-2. Time-wasted to start the second half before I put two past him, at which point he had no reply because he switched all his attack options for extra defenders, and when I went up 5-1 at ~80 minute rage quit.

    Last game, beastly team but guy ran straight back from kickoff to give me a corner. We ended up giving possession to each other throughout the game, making sure each of us had at least 3 headed goals. Game ended 8-8 (a lot harder to score headers when you need to; even did a scorpion kick goal by accident...) and I won on penalties.
    Most enjoyable game I had all week.

    never gonna use Carrol, but hey, free card for playing a few games, yes please.

    I was letting people have corners and chances to have headers in games I was 2-0 up in.

    Formation switching, passing round the back and being try hards. It's very sad

    I did all the objectives in three games thankfully. Last game was good though. Gold attribute cards on every player! All three opponents weren't very good despite having standard meta teams.

    Last year my most fun teams were

    EFL Chumps
    Bronzy Boys
    Silverbacks

    You can guess what they were by the name.

    Sadly this year there's no bronze cups etc.

    I might just make a bronze team anyway and take the losses from the sweat gang.

    Changed team name to 1header4carroll, still the first game I let opponent score a header and another goal but i'm afraid he wasn't getting it despite static defenders and me passing up on open goals to go wide and cross it. 2nd game worked a treat.

    I got all the challenges done in three games. Found it quite easy, only had one tough game where a lad used training cards on every player, had a full meta team. :D

    Did the same, team name “head4carroll” and we let eachother have a go :) had to do two matches though, somehow boateng felt like scissorkicking it all the time in first match :D
    Both of us even subbed some fieldplayer in goal instead of DDG and Fahrmann ;)
