Seriously how is an 8 year old better than me on this game. He couldn't barely speak any English yet somehow he lags nad wins 7-0 after I quit after 66 mins. I don't get this game. Connection is making me extremely poor.

    If he's winning 7.0 he's clearly better then you! No amount of lag would determine that scoreline

    I was constantly freezing and speeding up and my buttons wouldn't register till 3-4 seconds later. I smashed my controller because of it. Losing is fair enough but losing like that because of connection isn't on.

    Someone’s failure to grasp the English language is completely irrelevant to how good they are at a video game. If it were, you would be Top 100.

    No far from it but when my connection if ok I'm elite 3/gold 1 player yet in the last 3-4 weeks I'm average silver 3-2 because of connection advantage to my opponents.

    This Can not be true, i Have bad connection here in Sweden and get silver 1 / gold 3 if i Have a good WL, there is No way a better connection would get me to elite, probably max gold 2 , could be wrong, But i Dont think so

    You are overestimating your own ability if you think that a better connection could give you 10-15 more wins.

    Trust me it does, on average I hang around silver band but nearly got elite 3 the other week. The other week somehow every game was bliss smooth and enjoyable to play. Never will I ever experience that again.

    Maybe it was his son sitting next to him?

    Fifa is clearly young man's game, but I can hardly imagine 8 year old would be capable to win against decent player.

    But I might be underestimating today's kids who are born with a joypad.

    Isn't this like the third controller you've smashed in the past fortnight?

    Everyone here who thinks you cant thrash a better opponent when they have a bad connection, must always play with a decent connection.
    How can you defend when the opponent's attackers teleport from their own half into a 1 on 1 situation? Near impossible

    It is a new game EA is working on, combining FIFA and Startrek. They are going to give goalies phasers as well...

    I would imagine the older you get the more likely kids will beat you at video games. I'm sure that I regularly get beaten by 8-year olds.
