I just can’t enjoy them. I hate playing the AI.

It’s a tough slog when I need to play them for a weekly objective.

    Ok yeah I want the objective.

    Just hate it, are the rank rewards anywhere near worth it?

    I like the Rewards and I can tend to stomach a few matches. But when I need to play a few more to get to a certain rank it does do my head in a little.
    It is definitely a very good addition for those that prefer to play AI than Online.
    Singles Seasons is woefully bad Rewards and Structured terribly.

    I dont mind it, its nice to just be able to load and play a game and not have to worry if i have to pause it for some reason.

    Pretty much feels the same as an online game these days anyway. People just use the AI def so might as well just play the AI :D

    Rewards also tick over quite nicely week by week.

    Rubbish.

    Played it the first week on 18 because a there was no other mode available, haven't played a single game since.

    I wouldn't mind it if they binned it for next year.

    It’s great for when I can’t give Fifa my full attention. Sometimes I need to be able to pause and walk away for 30 mins. Next to no pressure and good for testing players capabilities. I only play Legendary or Ultimate though.

    They would upset a lot of people.
    It has to be there.
    Some weeks I say I am not playing it this week, but even G1 rewards just to top up club and feed pack addiction a little draws me in to 4 or 5 games at least/most.

    Good for using some untradeable players you haven't used yet or trying out a new Formation.

    Well I like it, easy way to say achieve 2-3 objectives all at the same time. Also bonus coins/packs on a Monday for not really much effort. However yes whereas before it was the only way to get rewards if you weren't in weekend league there is no way now I'd play purely for that reason i.e. to try and get say elite 3 or above, it would be just to do objectives but yes with a nice bonus on a Monday.

    I make a squad from each of the top 5 leagues from untradeables and run them in SB usually

    I don't use my Icons in Squad Battles, I make teams out of my other cards. Serie A, Prem, Bunds and a Hybrid or 2. Just keeps things fresh.

    Best addition to Fifa ever,perfect for people that have time consuming jobs and kids,you can just pick up and play anytime without the stress and rubbish that comes with online gaming.

    Very stupid idea to remove a mode that not everyone has to play,if you wanna play it go for it if not no problem!

    Nailed it, couldn’t agree more

    The freedom to pause a game is a huge help if you’ve got kids!!

    It’s fine except for when they decide to flip the switch and become Barcelona circa 08/09 with their damned 1-2 tiki taka nonsense

    This.

    It’s great when you’ve got kids to pause it and stuff but then you get this nonsense and think why do I put myself through it

    I just get no enjoyment playing SB compared to online.

    I barely play during the week anyway but if I do I'd rather play online against a real person than play SB.

    The fact that rewards are shocking also adds to the reasons not to play it.

    The concept is great for players who prefer single player.

    I'd rather watch paint dry then play single player so for me it's useless, but generally speaking it's cool.

    It's not as bad as people make it out to be it's literally 40mins per day and weekends you get 12 games per day but if you play Legendary/World Class all week you can hold E1 usualy without touching it over weekend and you get 30 odd K and two Rare Mega's and I've found those megas so helpful all year what with the constant SBC content !

    played about 3 games all year.
    worst mode in FIFA
    Rivals and FUT champs sometimes feel the same when people AI defend all match

    Tbh I might go back to playing it again, I usually just play my 3-5 rivals games per week and stop there but we’ll see what EA drop for FUT Birthday
