Connection advantage is so BLATENTLY obvious in DR

And it happens almost every game. It sucks that I have to wait until the weekend to play with a new team because playing DR is practically unplayable due to the fact that every game is out of sync and my opponent is a full 1-2 seconds ahead of me.

I love especially love it when my players don't even move when the ball is right next to them, I pass the ball to my players and they do that stupid lunge touch for literally no reason which results in a turnover, when I first time pass or shoot and it takes 3 seconds for my players to do it which messes up the attack, when I pass in a direction but because it takes forever to register the pass I move the stick because I expect the player receiving the ball to actually get the pass to them and my player kicks the ball in a completely different direction and every loose ball goes to the opposition.

    Game is just getting worse with every update. Always something else. No balance to the game whatsoever.

    I get "connection didadvantage" in squad battles.

    I play a bunch of other games with ping in the score boards and my ping is always relatively low. Close to the lowest ping and seems the average lowest ping.

    Yet in fifa I have "connection problems"; I don't buy it.

    My AI defenders move away from opposition players. If I had bad connection my players would react late which would mean they'd be close to opposition, for them to stand far away means they'd be standing in the future.

    Furthermore my AI defenders don't make tackles challenges or interceptions.

    My opposition AI is always automatically slamming into my players and staying touch tight or slamming into tackle from yards away.

    Incredibly suspect if you ask me.

    "Connection" doesn't explain any of those issues. Connection explains players being delayed, or speed up lag etc.

    Played a guy earlier, pretty tight opening 20 minutes, fluid as can be, then every shot I took went in. I found myself 5-0 up after 70 minutes. The gameplay was incredible, for me.

    I could tell that the guy wasn't a considerably worse player than me. He created opportunities and his shots were skewed wide, or hit straight at my keeper.

    I messaged him saying 'Good game, the scoreline didn't reflect our abilities, I had EA on my side' he replied saying that he had a 'weird' lag throughout. I can only imagine he meant button delay.

    We all find ourselves on either end of this far too frequently. It's not fair.

    Bad sluggish gameplay also happens in offline mods, so it’s not connection issue,
    Ea implemented this for reason. And reason is to make you feel that your team is not good enough, so you have to buy points and get better players. And as you can see it works, since lightning rounds sell out.

    Yeah in DR i can have a whole week of perfect gameplay, and win every game, and then a whole week of constant delay, and lose 25 in a row.
    WL is hit and miss but it’s usually better than DR.

    This year I can’t take any credit when I win, cuz it could have been eaids on my side. It’s not only about shots, it’s about ball bouncing to my players, rebound right to my players, my players winning 50/50 situations, ridicilous interceptions players start to make, nutmegs etc

    There actually isn't any offline modes in FUT. There's modes that you play against the AI and modes that you play against humans but none are offline as you're still connected to the servers so if the servers are bad then it will be noticeable across all modes. You can't even enter FUT without an internet connection.

    EA wouldn't put this is the game as it's making people quit and ruining the franchise.

    I was talking about standart Kick off.

    And bad gameplay been a thing since fifa16 for sure, and EA done nothing to fix it, so it’s obvious for me that bad gameplay is implemented ingame by EA.

    Did you turn the internet off as you connect to the EA servers as soon as you turn the game on?

    I agree it's went downhill each year from 16 but to suggest EA put this in the game is a bit silly. They would have nothing at all to gain from this but risk losing alot of customers each year which has been happening the last couple of years due to this delayed and unresponsive gameplay.

    I'm a fan of conspiracy theories but this one just doesn't make sense at all.

    Sure that makes no sense as loads of people have stopped buying packs this year because of how bad the gameplay is as it makes no difference what players you have when it's delayed and unresponsive as you can't do anything with them. And lightning rounds haven't been selling out recently for the first time I've ever seen.

    I agree with alot of things that go on in this game that EA deny but this theory just doesn't make sense.

    It just makes zero sense at all. There's more chances of the earth actually being flat 😂

    There is delayed and unresponsive gameplay and it does affect how we all play and limits what you can do but to say EA put this in the game is ridiculous.

    Well, if you are right it’s even worse, cuz it means that EA are completely incompetent and they can’t even fix coding errors for years.

    Whether its servers or whatever, it's up there as the most painful gaming experience I have ever experienced in any fifa or other game...
    Dont get me wrong i absolutely love the game itself and how it plays, like when there is jo lag, delay etc or say on non FUT single player with friends.... it's just all the crap that's associated with the match that frustrates the daylight out of me

    dunno man, I know your'e always raging about your connection and i'm sure thats what you're experiencing. but i've been in the same apartment last 7-8 years, on the same standard $60/month comcast internet and barely ever have problems with lag.

    wired connection to your PS4 is a must, I reckon you already have it setup that way?

    If you're connected to the internet on your console then as soon as you load up FIFA you connect to the EA servers so even playing kick off you will still be connected to the servers.

    Disconnect the internet on your console and play kick off and I can guarantee there won't be delay.
