I'm happy.

So I'm a silver 2/1 player since start ( yep, you need us to feel superior 😉), but this week I finished gold 3. Yay me?

But seriously, I actually enjoyed myself. I got beat by those who were clearly better than me, but the majority of the games were close or me making silky mistakes.

What was obvious was watching those people who only use timed finesses failing with shots going wide but still persisting in trying it, so for me the patch helped.

It's still has issues this game, but I hated FIFA 18 and even though people say the game is like FIFA 18 now, I beg to differ 😊.

I'm looking forward to next week and come on gold 2!

  • Be honest. Do you think you improved or it got easier?

    You could atleast know when you have higher chance of getting a goal in 18!!! I don't know if my player will score or scuff or hit it to stands!!

    Tbh, my son says a bit of both. Easier in that hes seen me loose to more finesse goals that I've just quit in disgust instead of persevering, however he does say I'm playing better.

    Either way, it's about enjoying playing and I have to admit, I did.

    Cheers mate.

    I'm just on a gold high...

    Not bad for a 49 year old that holds the controller like a boa constrictor, drinks heavily while playing and has an elite 1 son constantly laughing at my lack of skills as well as his 200 mates on line, all wanting to play me for a laugh 😂.

    I used to be the Kick off 2 king back in the day...

    Respect yer elders...!!!! 😉

    Relax, you sound not happy. Just dont play this game if not happy. I'm saying that at this time, the patch has helped me.

    Peace.

    Why the beef? All I said is that I'm happy after the patch? What have I said or done to you for you to "try" and be insulting?

    Good stuff mate.

    I think we all know the game has issues and things such as AI should be toned down, bit still I'm on a gold high, especially since I don't touch the controller and all goals are scored by the AI apparently 😉 .

    Cheers bud. A simple I'm happy and did better than I have before, brings out those who for some reason aren't happy but still hang around the forums, and I assume still play, but want to make everyone as miserable as them.

    /Sigh.

    I believe people are salty because you revel in your inflated success at the expense of a devalued game. Surely you must realize how something like this can be damaging to an esport title?

    Revel in a gold 3 finish?

    Inflated success?

    Do you really think the majority of players care about this being an eSports title?

    Most people who play this just want to have fun and maybe a chance of getting that one player that's elite.

    Remember fun? Was great back in the day.

    What % actually cares about eSports????

    It’s because the majority of the good players and players that have been playing fifa for a long time are quitting. You’re more likely to play against newer players or players that couldn’t break into the next tier like you said you were. So in a sense, most players beneath probably the Elite level are moving up a rank or two. I played my first game in almost two months yesterday and won pretty easily, which was a bit shocking. It’s really noticeable that a lot of good players have left this game because I had no business dominating my opponent the way I did yesterday.

    Maybe so, but I can only beat those who I'm up against and I lost to 16 of those. I don't know who's joined or left and neither tbh do you.

    My son's friend list still has the same since day one and still active.

    Just remember, these forums are not all who play FIFA, and just because we and I include myself in this, thinks this forum is the be all and end all of FIFA, it's a drop in the ocean to the thousands of players that just play and enjoy and don't come to the forums.

    Gold 3, you'd think I said top 100 and I'm the nuts. 😉.

    Anyway, I guess I should just finish by saying-

    Sorry for actually been happy which is a rare occasion playing FIFA.

    Sorry for actually not being frustrated ( a guy with nif Son scored 5 and really me off) when I guess you're supposed to be?

    Sorry for actually not creating a moaning/not happy thread.

    Sorry for having fun...

    Oh, wait a mo, guess I'm not sorry. Now for gold 2 next week or silver 2 depending on my luck 😉.

    congrats ,im happy for you really :)

    but otherside,you should not beat better players like you ,that shows how is no skill gap in this game anymore...if you reach some rank with gamestyle and games that you felt you are a better player its alright,but you should not finish some rank and say "i beat better players like me" . This is a ESPORT game (laughing always on it) and the better players should win in 98% and 2% some lucky wins

    Well for me, I beat those who I was better than, I lost to those that were clearly better than me, lost to some I should have won and beat some that should have won.

    Isn't that football in a nutshell?

    It sound like all the rubbish players are getting 30 and 0 or elite ranking by the way some are talking.

    I wasn't aware that jumping from silver 1 to gold 3 was such a massive jump and proves the patch made all the rubbish players better.

    Personally I think the game has become easier for the less skilled players. No offence intended
