    Content in the first 2 weeks was good but has gone downhill since. No flashback for weeks, today was a perfect opportunity for a flashback sbc. No movember and the same fut swaps as last month. Fut has so much potential why do they hold it back its such a frustration

    Every year they try and give a little less. Fifa Points still are being bought by the truckload. They have it too pretty at the moment.

    Gameplay and servers yes.

    Content no, we had daily SBCs for a while, got Bundes POTMs, possibly a La Liga one, flashbacks and more. Its dried up a little in the last few weeks and the Icon SBCs are dead but overall the content has been better than 18, everything else is much worse, though.

    Lag and delay aside, this is the worst FIFA I've ever played for gameplay.

    At least you could play passes in the box on Fifa 18. Overpowered AI interceptions and blocks put paid to that sadly.

    I actually think 18 was worse for gameplay, I liked the icon SBcs last year the that's about it

    At the moment I feel like I’m forced into playing WL to potentially get some decent gameplay in, rivals feels ❤️❤️❤️❤️ awful, absolutely dreadful.

    The passing is so inconsistent for me, pogba and co constantly under hitting 3 yard passes. And the delay, Christ....

    Cant understand how they messed up so Bad with the gameplay. Maybe this is maximizing pack sales by reducing skill gap but then on the another hand even mediocre players should appreciate feel of control

    The servers are literally unacceptable from a company of this size and the money that's thrown through it.... customers have an expectation and EA dont hold to that, its different everytime you play and most times for the worse

    We should all play each other as Bronze teams for a week. Solid. Then escalate to a month. Then the whole Fifa. Buy no points. You need to play as good players go back to the normal head to head Fifa like we used too.

    Genuinely never experienced gameplay issues this bad on Fifa before. Why am I, why are we even complaining tbh though, it doesn’t make an ounce of difference in the end :)

    Bro the passing on 18 was assisted beyong belief. Half the time it would pass for you. Watch this 30 second clip and and understand how Assisted passing is. @DanCJ

    19 have solved some very critical problems for 18 but on the other hand also bring in a lot of glitches. Looks like a game without proper testing to me. The gameplay is just slightly better and there are a few problems that EA must patch asap.

    You don’t get anything in life unless your prepared to take a bit of temporary pain for long term gain. The snowball can be small to get going but once it has decent momentum your off.

    Minus the shooting problems (mainly free kicks) when the game was in early access and the before the 1st patch this was actually a really good fifa.
    I gununily thought wow we finally have something good here.

    2 patches later.....

    Everything about it is boring.
    The game play
    The commentary
    The content
    The modes
    The rewards
    Everything

    Need a new game to play tbh

    I almost didn't buy 19, I'm definitely not buying next year. Taking a much needed break from this garbage, I love football. But FIFA has become as far away from the game as I'd ever imagined it could have. I'm actually sick to death of hammering people who sit deep all game to just counter you. Or only run down the wing and cross it. There's no diversity to FUT. It's all just a pompous grindy sweatfest full of absolute bedwetters dabbing their way to victories....

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. This mode started to go downhill once it was no longer an add on. Look at the type of idiots you play regularly? It’s a kids mode now, simple as that

    Last year we had blind assisted 40-60 yard inch perfect passes by anyone on the pitch and the ai defence was just as assisted

    The game has been ❤️❤️❤️❤️ for a few years now and its only getting worse.

    I wish they'd make 2 versions, one of the esports tryhards and one for the rest of us that actually want to use the other 12000+ cards in the database and not just those above 87 rated.

    The game used to be so great, even when it had flaws. I don't see all these SBC and promotions as NEW content, it's just more of the same ❤️❤️❤️❤️ every week. The game was more rich in content when you just had the bronze silver and gold cup because you had the ability to make literally thousands of different teams.

    Everyone and their mums passes like Ronaldinho, doing some accurate 360 no look passes.

    Passing needs to be fixed
