I've been trying to figure out why I keep playing because I've been getting incredibly frustrated with the game lately. I am trying to make this super easy with the choices.

Addicted to rewards and packs - don't actually like the gameplay much.

    This, but a mixture of 1, 3 and 4.

    I feel like subconsciously I play as a form of self torture.

    This. This year’s version has frustrated me more than any of the previous 4 (all of which I played heavily). I enjoy football so I keep playing, but the gameplay just isn’t where it should be IMO, and EA are letting the Icon market get completely out of control in large part because the Icon SBCs have been executed poorly compared to last year.

    That's why I wanted to do this poll. I have actually sworn off spending money - so the only way I can open packs (curb the addiction) is to play this god forsaken game.

    Same, not spending. This game indoctrinates young kids into gambling

    I never ever played this game as much as I did till I had my football injury. So since I’m unable To play all I can do is watch it and play it on a console

    I used to play 4/5 times a week but it is what it is

    It’s ridiculous that such a poor game has a monopoly

    I think it's a mix of many factors.

    I like football.
    I like games.
    I enjoy building up a character in games, I guess my club is like that too.
    I have been playing FIFA since the 90's it becomes a habit.
    It is a pick up and play game (in general).
    Icons (playing with players I have loved to watch).


    I guess other factors too.

    This is actually a huge aspect to FUT - until you said it, I probably wouldn't have thought about it in that way.

    It really shows addicting the game play was through to '15, to keep us playing for so long. Sure we had the spikes of activity - TOTY, upgrades & transfers, TOTS.

    Now there is content as well as these incredibly unique players - makes it more worthwhile.

    Now, only if EA can sort out the damn Icon SBC requirements, there'd be many I'd like to try out.

    I should have had Icons there - good shout. That's very true.

    I don't play. First year for ages I haven't bought it, I do miss the buzz a bit around the promotions & rewards (it's why I still come on here & post)

    I decided after playing the beta version that I wouldn't this year, the gameplay was so bad & I know that I'd just end up spending shed loads of money on packs to make up for it. I knew it would make zero sense spending more money on a game I'm going play less but I know that's exactly what I'd do.

    All of the reasons apart from enjoying gameplay really.

    I love rewards on Thursday, we have no aternative imo and I always end up turning the box on when I’m bored.

    The gameplay isn’t that bad now I’ve got used to it, it’s just a bit too random.

    Love football in genaral. Always liked the way Barcelona play and the Man City team as of now. I try and break down players defence like they do in real. Always enjoy scoring a nice well worked goal.

    Sometimes I don't know why I play. I love football, it's my only true hobby (playing myself, watching, football (manager) games. Also FIFA is addictive, you want to get to the next ranking, etc, etc. But it's torture aswell. If only the servers where 100% smooth and reliable at all times....

    Me too, but now I don't touch the other modes. I also had friends who played at the time and was single so they'd come over and we'd play for hours . Now that is WL with people who play like tool bags, lol.

    I actually like the game. Otherwise I wouldn't play.

    There are and all ways will be issues but it's a big improvement on the last 2 years.
