I don’t blame anyone who backs out of an away game

When there’s the risk of your players turning like Titanic for 18 minutes of your life while your opponent thinks they’re God, why would you play away at all?

    If you have to wait for your opponent you’re home. If your opponent is there waiting for you you’re away. It’s ridiculously easy when you know.

    Also, you can tell if there is lag if the opponent can select there jersey before you in wl, rivals, and single matches.

    You do realise you will never play a game if everyone has this opinion

    As a Rotherham United fan I can definitely say I wish we could back out of Championship away games 🤦🏼‍♂️ Not won one in nearly 2 years 😆

    90% of players who are serious about winning do this, so even if lag wasnt the issue, it still makes a difference.

    Most top level players do it to avoid playing each other.

    Flawed system

    haven't EA or the comms guys already said that playing home/away has no bearing on connection? the pros always play home to avoid each other

    No they don’t, and those that do don’t do it for this reason

    I think it is dumb... let everyone play away..you will end up playing 1 game every 2 hours... be careful of what you wish for

    Away games are typically worse for lag or game play but it’s a lot of faff just to get a slightly better game

    Also only play at home. Feel like the gameplay is much more consistent. I can imagine it being a slight pain in the Booty hole. But if I think it helps my gameplay and results improve, it’s worth it for me.

    Always takes a while to get a game if you have a good record as it is, ffs.

    Often puts me as the home team..

    Think harder lad... it makes complete sense.

    If all the good players do this, and you do it too, you are less likely to be matched with a good player. Meaning you are more likely to be match with a bad player

    Even better. Why not EVERYONE do it and we will never play a game.
