Useless players now good

I simply cannot beat my friend who has absolutely no idea how to play football. Even at five a sides, he’s useless. Fantasy football; he finishes last.

All previous Fifa; he’s useless.

Fifa 19; he just finished elite. He’s absolutely mastered AI defending and timed finishing. He’s so difficult to beat now without actually having any knowledge of football. He controls his cdm and just constantly slams finesse shots with his 3 cams.

Is this honestly what EA want from their game?

    I assume you typed this behind your tear-strained post of not receiving free content from EA Sports. They’re not giving you it after this post either; unlucky, chump.

    He fully conceded that he doesn’t have to learn the art of football. He’s happy to let AI defend and just shoot as soon as he reaches 30 yards from goal.

    It’s beyond pathetic.

    Got the exact same thing with my mate, absolutely shocking.

    Been beating him all the over the years, Christ he couldn’t even win the DKT. Now, e3 finishes every other WL :/

    It really wouldn’t bother me if he just got good. I’d bloody applaud him.

    He is under no illusions though; he will openly tell anyone that he just lets AI do the business for him and he just timed finesse shots from anywhere. It’s infuriating. He’s not even doing anything wrong; he’s playing the game as it’s desgined. He doesn’t have to think about defending or think about attacking. Let the game defend and just time a shot and it’s as easy as that.

    sad but true
    you don't need football knowledge anymore to play FIFA
    it became one button on defending and some combo smashing in attacking

    But there is no way he is having fun. I play the game for fun so I manually defend, try to pass the ball and score screamers with Cruyff. It's not like the rewards are worth it to play boring AI football.

    The new mechanics were put in place to close the skill gaps... so what happened between unskilled friend losing all the time? Now hes winning... skill gap closed, ‘nuff said

    So he's better than you (and most fifa players if he's finishing elite) at a computer game?

    What's your point?

    Pretty sure if you put me in the middle of a warzone against a Royal Marine, the fact i used to be among the highest possible ranks on csgo would seem a bit irrelevant too.
    It's a game. It's different.

    I think his point is he wants this football video game to actually represent football.

    Madness.

    This is my favorite part, the skill gap still exists, OP is just at the wrong end of it.

    When you think about it, Luca Modric should really be the best fifa 19 player in the world! But I've never seen him make it to a tournament or even in the top 100!!!

    This is a disgrace. Come on EA sort it out!!!!!!!!
