    How does penalty shootout relate to playing defensive?!
    This game is a joke, I bet 80% of this forum conceded 120th min bs corner goal.

    If you cant beat your opponent in 120mins you deserve to lose anyway, penalties are a chance to win

    What exactly do you want to happen?
    I rarely have pen shootouts 1 sometimes 2 per weekend this is usually against very safe players who refuse to commit anybody forward.

    Would you need to? 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss...

    It's a league. It's should run like one. And instead of wins is measured on points

    To add to this the penalty system is horrible in this game, its another thong that's gone backwards over the years.

    I usually win my penalties.

    Most people are dreadful at them.

    Another crazy complaint.

    What do you propose instead? They do it because that's how a football match is settled in competition, extra time then pens.

    Why change this?

    I like that personally.
    If you have to go ET it just starts to drag.
    Would make the 30 games go a little faster too.
    I’d say at least 5-6 of my 30 normally go to ET then 1-2 to pens.

    A 5-5 game can go to pens just as easily as 1-1 game.

    A football match is always settled on pens? I've seen many draws in my time.

    lmao most funny thing about FIFA that I saw this week. Then overtimes would look like:
    Golden kickoff goal
    Golden first touch finesse goal
    Golden rebound goal
    etc

    Imagine the forum rage when player A needs 3 points from their last 1-2 games to achieve the rank they want, while player B only needs 1 more point to achieve their rank. Player B then plays ultra defensive, wastes time and abuses everything they can to get a draw.

    Win-loss-draw would see even more toxic stuff happen than currently does. Penalties are a part of the real sport too, so it’s not BS to have it in the game. People want to cry that having penalties decide a ‘league game’ isn’t realistic, well playing 30 games in one weekend isn’t either, it’s not a normal season based league, so you can’t argue that.

    To people suggesting golden goal. I can see it now. Five threads per day “my opponent got the first kick off and scored in golden goal, this is BS EA, fix your game and remove golden goal from WL or I quit!”

    Current system is fine. Learn how to do penalties. If you can’t win in 120mins, then RNG and luck decide your fate.

    Totally agree, its not a tournament, its called weekend league. Games should only go for 90 mins. This would mean less people get 30-0 as well. A lot more fair

    I think this is the best suggestion. Would make the game more fun if people were trying to win rather than trying not to lose

    Deliberately edits the quote. Not helpful.

    "A football match is settled on draws."

    See I can do it too.

    A simple points based system could work. But what about DC's? I'd the match is a draw should it be replayed or the one who's connection dropped get a loss? Or a draw? Could this make the system more vulnerable to another no loss glitch?

    There is a lot to consider.

    Pluss it's not that much of an issue. If your going to pens every game you should try to win more rather than not loose. And it mirrors real life tournament games. Not that big a deal imo.
