I have played 4 games today, and in each one felt that I have had absolutely 0 control over the outcome of the game. Passes, shots, player switching - nothing goes the way I command it to. 80% of the goals I concede are purely down to scenarios which I am only in because the game hasn't correctly responded to my commands. The other 20% is usually my keeper - 3 shots went straight at him in one game and all went in. The next game goes to pens because my opponent scores from kick off boost in the 89' - I correctly guess 3 of his penalties yet the ball goes straight through my keepers hands each time, resulting in me losing. I literally conceded 2, yes 2 goals today, where the ball actually morphed through either my defender or my opponents attacker! This is how little control I have over the result of the game. I can read his move and counter it perfectly, yet still be punished.
How is it that my 'green' or 'perfectly' timed finesses consistently hit the post or go over, when my opponent hits ones in the yellow bar and they go in? How is it that 89 IF Pogba's strength is no match for Andrew Robertson? How can EA give away money for playing this game when literally nothing makes sense or has a level of RNG that seems to impact the outcome in some way. Shouldn't the reward go to the player who wins because of ONLY his own skill, and nothing else?
I seriously want a refund. I can't compete with what is going on at the moment, I consistently outplay my opponent, having more shots, creating more opportunities and having more possession, but still lose. 8-9/10 losses I take are (in my eyes) completely undeserved. I seriously think that only 15-20 occasions out of the 110 times I have lost, that my opponent has genuinely been better than me - which I am not afraid to admit - fair play to them if they're better. But if they get outplayed, and score only from kick off or scenarios in which I have no control over countering, then that's when I lose all incentive to play this excuse of a game from an excuse of a franchise.
Well said mate the game is in a right state
Game is a joke, needs snapping up and throwing in the bin. Or deleting from your downloads. Never to be played again.
All this happens offline single player aswell mate . Game is complete torture and EA have just sat there for a month leaving game in complete mess when they should of reverted patch like any other gaming company would i.E battlefield and you got an apology but not EA . How many players have rage quit and sold there teams because of this costing them hundreds or even thousands and time ? .
Thats the worst part I think. You have to use dirty tactics and techniques to win, so there's no feeling of reward.
Probably you will not answer me as always!!!
STHU the game is trash fanboy
I support you completely in this. But there are still those players who invest more money than usual and do not get anything. I'm not talking about big money.
This game online is BROKEN .It has problem synchronization. I had spend many hours and money from this game...I have tried everything, hardware, software,cable controlers,game monitors, changed internet providers, dns,open dmz,ethernet cables,modems etc ( my ping with my internet provider is good 14).
For example when I play online seasons and there are inside servers 10.000 peoples in ps4 the gameplay is almost normal...but when there are 20.000 - 30.000 peoples the gameplay is monkey-broken....Then my team has one side delay, sluggish gameplay, dubble error in passes and broken finishes,microstutters etc....but my opponents gameplay has boost response without problems!!!
The same problem when in my city drop snow and weather is heavy...then I need to make 30 finishes for to score 1 goal but the opponent noob player with a lucky chances score monkey goals...
I live in Greece...the SAME problem happens every time who I connect with opponents from Israel and Saoudi Arabia....Then again I have one side delay, sluggish gameplay, broken passes and finishies but my noob opponents gameplay has not problems...
The same cancer phenomeno happens every time when I play friendly online matches with a friend from near city in my house.(100 klm distance). My friend has the same internet provider company but it has 35 ping (I have 14 ping )and EVER I have one side delay and broken gameplay but he has normal game play!!! This game avantage the gamer with worst ping? What to hell is doing here EA???
The problem is not to my side, this game is BROKEN without NET STABILITY. It' s the last time who I pay for this broken game.
EA you must need to DUBBLICATE YOUR SERVERS IN EUROPE....if not then all us we not spend money again for this cancer game.
Also this is not only the direction of your joystick that decides where the pass will go especially if you have pass assist activated. The player owning the ball will not be able to make a good pass if all conditions are not met. (direction of the players, opponents in the direction of the pass, ...)
You can clearly see that with the team stats. If you played adventure or Single player career, it gives you hint on how the system works. When the match start, every player has a stats of 6. This player's stats will increase with a successful pass, a good shot, ... but will decrease with a bad timed tacle, a bad pass, a wrong place on the field, ... And upon all these, if one member of your team score, the whole team receive a bonus but if you concede a goal, the whole team will also be impacted...
Your team also has a bonus while playing home.
Making their players have double pace when you get in behind their back 4. Giving them double strength, being able to tackle from behind, exploiting through balls because they know it will take you a second to change player and your AI controlled players are just zombies. Making the opposition team go super saiyan when they want to score / in the last 5 mins of halfs. Unfortunately it doesnt really add difficulty, there is nothing you can do about a League 2 team one touch passing up the pitch, your players tackle-passing, then some clonker rigging from 35 yards with a weak foot half volley, it just adds frustration, you will still win, it will just be 5-4 instead of 5-0.
EA dont give a toss about single player and have not in over 5 years. Its all about the competitive scene for free advertising, and Ultimate team for that dollar dollar.
I agree with you a little. but EA says that he is committed to real football. but in the life of the whole team in one second does not become the post even if the team loses. A rare case when the whole team does not play real football. And then you just want to have both at one point because the two players in the team were more wrong passes? It's nonsense! A feeling that EA made the game by the book and not on real football. Look I've been doing screenshots of how EA handles my passes. According to you, then my team can't play well in the match.
Look where the direction of the pass and which player had to get the ball...
In 70% of cases my mistake is not for my reason
Your player is already facing opposite direction protecting the ball. You try to make a pass on his rear right with an opponent just behind him... Also I don't have the whole context (player general stats like vista and pass, player stamina, score, player match stats, how did he get the ball, ... ). As I see that the ball is already on the right of his right foot. This means to be able to pass where you intended. You player has to move his whole body toward the direction of the pass with an opponent just behind him or to make a total blind pass... And I suppose that you're using full assist on your pass. In real football if that kind of pass goes through it is mainly a blind pass where the player don't see his teammate but he is confident that he's there. But here as a FIFA player you see your whole team. This means that even if the player you're handling don't see his teammate, you see him on your screen... I also have this kind of behavior that makes me rage sometimes when I see a pass going to another player than the one I was expecting. If you want less of this kind of mistake then turn off pass assist and begin to play FUMA (Full Manual)
Again, I agree with you but not 100%. The pass was at one time (touch). Direction there is pass there is no. See who pass (a player in the circle on) pass through through the center. In a large percentage of the player's working leg right should not be a problem for the pass. Not necessarily to see player you can suggest where he will. Stick selected in the right direction, gave the pass, but the pass is absolutely not there. I have unfortunately there is no screen yesterday's game. There it seems on this situation. My player hits his head while facing his partner. He does not interfere with the opponent. Help coach shows a smooth direction towards the partner, but the pass goes much to the left (30-40 degrees) and of course how do you know exactly the opponent!!! Such cases are very common in the game. You don't know where the ball goes you start to think that your joystick's broken. You physically feel the direction of the stick, but the ball goes even in a simple situation is not correct. The thing is, I see it a lot more in the weekend League. Doubt pass when in different tournaments different statistics here on such moments. For example... kickoff in squad battles virtually no. Bigger rivals. League output days 0-0, 1-0. kickoff 1-1, 2-1 kickoff you only expense equalized and again lost. play five matches 4-1 five matches 1-4 and so all weekend.
I get penalties all the time. Sometimes I don't understand why! You play ball clean, but penalty. If I knock the ball clean and then the player gave himself a leg is not a penalty my player first on the ball. Apparently EA made a priority on a foul and they spit on the rules of the game. The judge was wrong they'll say. This is a new bug referees system in the game. Of course!!! It is a bug to clean up and talking about the new system. It seems that they bugs to finish (not to correct) and to call a new course in a game.
I wonder your team. All pace, no chem, high pressing and super sub.
