Tried a few games on legendary the last few days and everything is non responsive, passes slowing to a stop and players not reacting for so many seconds to button input.

Jesus the gameplay is dreadful, do they really think increasing difficulty means making your inputs not work and your good plays feel like at 47 bronze.

You can literally not controls players :D:D

    Try playing a team rated 60 on Ultimate AI, and you will start feeling there is something wrong with the game for sure. I got beat by a team with that rating. I was annoying to say the least

    It's not even about winning though, my players literally are not responding to inputs for so long and the ball rolls to a stop, it's feel awful.

    Couldn’t agree more. I played against a 63 rated 30 chem team and lost 3-0. Itvwas like playing a squad full of icons. A cdm with 38 shooting scored a first time volley from 25 yards and a midfielder with 48 shooting scored against Neuer on his near post from the edge of the box online with the 6 yard box.
    24 shots for me 3 for them. Unbelievable.

    Reset your router, restore your licenses and rebuild/defrag your console.

    Probably won’t work but it could. Also check your dns settings. The google ones (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) made a huge difference to the internet speeds I was getting through my PS4.

    Squad battles are on a server so connection makes a difference

    Could be, but I have no issues in other game modes or streaming HD films etc, upload speed is good too.

    EXACTLY! I hate this ‘always online’ BS that’s become common In games over the last few years.

    Gameplay in SB has been too far inconsistent for me.

    Squad battles has been horrendous since the last but one patch. It's still pretty easy to win on legendary but it certainly isn't fun.

    I think if you play on ultimate difficulty, the opposition squad rating and chemistry is meaningless. Pretty sure that it's been confirmed that all the opposing players have 99 everything on ultimate.

    Been great for me on Legendary. No point to try Ultimate i generally stop at E3 and it's usually done in 5 games.

    It'll do the same thing on professional too.

    In fact, the game play better for me on legendary than it does on professional.

    How do you get E3 in 5 games ???

    Clean sheets and score a minimum of 3 goals usually 2k+ points in those games. I start on Monday so the update doesn't take much effect on my rankings.

    By the weekend I probably play 1/2 games to stay close to E3/G1.

    I play at least 5 games a week on legendary and get 2,100 - 2500 points each time. I find it still requires a lot more games to be in Elite 3 or 2

    It's impossible to get elite 3 in under 15 games

    yeah if they only made the AI harder with each difficulty level, Id be fine with it. But I just cant stand the fact that it most certainly handicaps your playing as well. You guys beating SB on legendary must have stellar squads. I just cant see anyone consistently handling that difficulty (and winning 3-0 or 5-0) without at least an 87-88 rated squad

    It's not hard 5 games on a Monday at +2k per game is generally E3. Throughout the week obviously it drops and another few games on Saturday/Sunday usually is enough for just barely E3 or drops down to G3. Which is enough for SB.

    Bruv i was on 18k before this game. I could play those 3 games on WC and would do enough to get E3 this on Ps4 mate.

    Is anyone getting stronger and stronger opponents? My last three sets did not have a team below 84, and now the new one again - 84, 87, 87, 89. Somebody does not want me to play on legendary, I guess :)

    That's how my first 3 days of looked like 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately it will be like this more often, people getting better players, making stronger teams.

    Strange I was getting tons of 59-65 rated teams, only the last two are like 81-86. I threw together a silver 70 rated team after seeing a bunch of low rated teams in my list, my 88 rated team gets absolutely smashed by those squads below 80 and they play a lot better vs my 70 rated squad.

    I'm not sure rating makes a whole lot of difference, I sometimes win so easily against elite 88+ squads on legendary and struggle to score against 74 rated teams.

    On ultimate every player has 99 rating so it doesn't matter if they are bronze, silver or gold/special.

    I usually just play the top rated team on pro, then the next two on the level up from that, and then the weakest team on legendary. Even though I hate the mode I played it with my fitness squad this week to get my main team fresh again. I ended up with E2, so I'll see what the rewards look like tonight to see if it's worth ever bothering with that again.
