WL home games

Is anyone here willing to admit they only play home games during WL?

It's become a real source of irritation to me that people still back out of games so often. I don't get time to play 30 games anyway and end up spending 5 minutes trying to get a game half the time as most of the time I'm at home people back out.

I'm sure it's just a placebo too, I notice very little difference in my results whether I'm home or away. Can anyone who does home only honestly say they've had a huge upswing in results?

    Since the start of the game all i cared about was just playing games, i've changed nothing except only playing home games and i've gone from sometimes struggling to get G3 to G2/G1 consistently

    Who knows if its just the home games but it definitely has seemed to improve the amount of laggy games i have

    There's something called Google. I'll have to use that, carry on with your useless threads complaining about pack luck and the gameplay.

    I think home games are less laggy so yes, that might be the reason for better results.

    So when you find a match, if someone is already there it means you are the away team. Thanks for inspiring me to look into it @fifaplayerbol

    I never used to care but away games are unbearable for some reason. They used to be fine but now it’s not even worth trying

    Who came up with the delusional thought processes that home games are smoother on a dedicated server :D many of you cheapskates are using wifi and dsl.. use a ethernet cable and upgrade to fiber optic...smh

    I've played like 3 away games, but yeah, I'm willing to admit I "only" play at home. Sometimes the game naturally puts me as the home team like 5 times as a row and everyone backs out, so I just start doing the same. I'm stubborn as a mule, so if people wanna be knobs, bring it on, I've got plenty of time. :lol:

    People dont do it because of lag tho. they do it to avoid pros. So if all the try hard superstars do it, that means you are playing worse competition.

    It's hilarious really how for the first ten games you get a game first time almost every time, home or away. After that it takes forever to find a game because everyone wants to play at home. For what I don't know. The games are on dedicated servers, aside from having the first kick off it literally makes zero difference.

    I only make sure i play home if i really need a win to level up and dont have many games left. Otherwise i just play with whatever. I get delay whether im home or away so it doeant really make much difference its just luck of the draw for me. I notice when i get to 17+ wins or so theres a lot more backing out by people.

    EA should patch it so you don't see who is "home".
