WL Gameplay is laughable

So after winning my personal best 22 games last week I started off this week 9-1. Everything was clicking. Players making runs, pinpoint passing. Couldn't be stopped. And then the gameplay changed. Last 30 games I went 5-25. Seemed like every single pass was 1 step behind my player. When I did manage to piece a couple passes together and get a shot off it would just fly wide or bang off the post. My defenders lost all their sight as players just continually would run past them as they stood like their feet were in wet concrete. How can this game advertise itself as "e-sport" ready when you can never get the same gameplay from game to game. Thankfully I had a good laugh. A couple months ago I probably would have raged out but I'm so used to the crap its now funny.

    this, but I play COD. I tried real hard last month and got 27 wins one week, 25, 24, 23 wins in other weeks and 11 wins in the first week coz I stopped there.... got gold 1 monthly, I got nothing from rewards and nothing from monthlies so I can't be bothered to put the effort in anymore. This week I stopped at 11 wins.

    Eventhough I recently started believing a little more in the EA conspiracy theories after some PMs with credible content was sent to me, I just have to say this:

    You go up against better and better opponents (in theory) the more wins you get. If you go 9-1 you are most likely predicted Elite/Gold 1 and will play against people with similar record. You will meet people that are better at defending, cutting your passing lanes, closing down faster, better custom tactics, or even just people that formation switch to a tactic that counters yours (and ofcourse the games where you meet up with someone that has a ping advantage/disadvantage). There would be no 40-0 players if this was SO influential in how a game works out.

    Be calm, dont be overly aggressive and do yourself a magic trick, record your first five matches and then your last five and have a watch. Difference in both how you play and your opponent is bound to be huge.

    i actually had a laughable number of my own players getting the way of shots etc this weekend.... not mention balls hitting my players (rebounds etc.) and they don't even react!

    And what is with that animation whereby a player lifts one leg and slightly leans away..... and the ball casually (not even powerfully) rolls under the lifted leg.... drives me mad!

    Gameplay is more a problem when you are winning. In fairness, 9-1 would have you predicted elite 1 so you are going to get a run of bitterly difficult games if you are normally a gold player.

    Yup totally agree with op. I'm yet to have a game where I'm not stop starting all the time. Power meter is very slow to respond and general play is extremely heavy.
