As a long time FIFA player I really have to share my thoughts about FIFA19.
Why is FIFA19, as always, each and every year, not a finished and fully product?
Why do we, end-users, who pay quite some money to get it, need to function as BETA testers for an unfinished and untested game?
The experience after one week of playing is very poor once again.
EA Sports changed gameplay in FIFA18 with almost every patch and FIFA19 is in no way different.
Once again another gameplay, once again even worse as it was before.
I will not mention all of the bugs I noticed in this week, and several might already have been addressed in the first patch within a week (!!!). Why are all these issues not tested and seen before?
The game is horrendous in the duels between players, it looks like a ping-pong match. I give the ball to you, you give it to me etc. And as usual physical teams (all english teams) are way overpowered and are very difficult to play against.
To be honest passing is improved, it is not that easy anymore to reach your teammate, but at least you have to be more careful.
EA Sports: why are you not doing a two year sequence (with one year updates of teams of course), and try to take your time to create a fully tested and working end-product to avoid all negative reviews and responses?
Why do we need to be your testers? It can't be true. GTA was waiting for 5 years to bring out a new GTA and it was close to perfection.
I hope this dicussion will be an hnest one, and not just getting replies like you should play manual instead of arcade cpu etc. That's not the point in this discussion, just to wake up EA Sports to improve their processes of developing, testing and finally selling their product.
FIFAxx is very popular but by far the most unfinished game I have even seen.
