    Good to see some effort and transparency from the team,Hope we are a improvement as i can't stress how inconsistent gameplay makes fifa so frustrating and so much at times we lose controll and feel mad,Will this be fixed in time for 20 as we can't have a other year of this like 17 to 18 imo was a huge improvement but 19 feels so unfinished it worries me.

    Good job for now. Configuration and hardware changes are great start, but your non-responsive gameplay is not because of bad servers... Only 30% of my bad gameplay games are because of bad connection and delay (i'm gold 1 player and i've played 1200 games for now). Other 70% of bad gameplay games, i had non-responsive gameplay (sliding tackles i didn't press, players turn without stick moving, tackle instead of shot and etc.), but without delay and lag. It's obvious there is different animations with non-responsive gameplay on board and it happens mostly agents low ranked players. Every fifa player will say to you that he is losing from noobs and beating good players because of non-responsive gameplay. It happens even in offline modes (career mode, squad battles and even kick-off ffs) when it must be "hard" for you like FA Cup Final. Watch InceptionXx's videos or some fifa 19 rage compilations on YouTube and you will see your weird gameplay... It's not the connection... IT'S IN THE GAME since first FUT, but now its more obvious than ever!

    I agree with the post above - you can get games with no lag but gameplay is sluggish. In these instances most passes includes a lunging animation, players ignore the ball, player switching doesn't work etc

    Heavy touches is the key one. This includes players acting like they've been shot when they receive the ball, making reasonable passing plays impossible. This is variable gameplay but doesn't feel like it's necessarily due to lag.

    It does however happen more often during what I assume to be peak hours (now spreading more and more to off peak hours I.e. 5am UK)

    Thank you for opening up on this and for efforts to improve this situation. It is the key issue in my opinion. I can't and won't put myself through another year of this.

    There is no problems with your servers,

    The problems are caused by bizarre matchmaking e.g. UK players constantly matched with Russians. I have an amazing UK connection the only time game is slow or unresponsive is when I am matched with someone I should never have been playing to start with.

    Therefore the problem is with the amount of lag compensation your using. This is suppose to be a competitive Esport game... so why are you punishing the players with the good connections and not the people using wifi, or slow internet and especially those using a hotspot to cheat their way out of losses (mainly Russians again).
  • This will automatically fix your servers - (everyone wants this)

    1) Remove manual goalkeeping.
    2) Nerf AI defending. Not even a single tackle from AI. Manual defending will automatically decrease the rage among players. Rage only happens when a good player losses against a low tier player because he scored 3 headers and won the match.
    3) Open matchmaking game mode with decent rewards every week. Nobody wants to play competitively all the time.
    4) Remove time finishing and make the finishing overpower. 1 vs 1 will automatically be fixed.

    Players will always complain about servers no matter how much you try to fix the connection. The only way is to decrease rage between matches.

    This is feedback only. Can we have an option to have the weather system is not related to where I live? I know I can change it, but on most occasions, that's the last thing on my mind, and I don't want to have to keep switching it back to my fave climate all the time. I don't want to be reminded that I live in a wet environment all the time

    I know that some people don't give a fudge about it, but every time I play, its raining in the game. I'm sure the pitch would have been a swimming pool by now if I continually play like this
