The latest Title Update for FIFA 20 is now available on PC and includes the changes listed here.

After 10-0 no one plays home games, this needs to stop

I have spent the last 5 mins searching for a game, keep connecting as the home team.

Everyone backs out, it happens every single game.

We as a community have literally been mentioning this again and again, when will EA do something about it?

    Thing is now that this is so prevalent, if you are decent and just take whatever game you get a large percentage of the away games are against poor players who are fishing for easy games anyway so it doesn't matter. Given there's an equal amount of good players you 'risk' running into who play away games anyway, I just play whatever I can get and finish the same rank every single week.

    Exactly this. I’m 14-1 and played 12 away games. Some of those guys had feet for hands. Just play the game.

    Yeah I gave up about 5 weeks ago searching for home games . Just take every game, along as its above 4 bars .
    Been counting every game since .

    Ends up about 20 away 10 home .

    Currently 10-1 . 7a 4h

    The level of opponents have not been great this week

    I back out only if i feel it takes long to connect to them, and the menus feel slow. Dont @ me, i try to run away from slow gameplay as mich as i can.

    EA could sort this tomorrow if they wanted to, just don't let anyone see who is home and away until you're in game.

    They choose not to do it because it allows the top players to purposely avoid playing each other, and gives the YouTube following try-hards another way to act like ❤️❤️❤️❤️.

    It's in the game.

    I literally play away 95% of the time cuz I cba.. I would like to play at home cuz I feel the connection is slightly advantageous for me, but since I’m only playing to G3 these days, no point in cherry picking

    I am only playing away. I like to wait around 30s in the connection screen though , to make sure the connection is good and that the opponent is desperate enough to only play home games (meaning he is bad) . I am 19-1 this weekend league

    Said same thing last week

    All I got was forum urchins being hard saying I was complaining and cherry picking. Not the point at all it’s that it takes so long to find any game because people think there’s an advantage.

    You get same out come each week I’m sure anyway

    What side of the screen is home and which one is away? I’ve never really payed attention to it.

    Correct, but some of the bad ones are terrible. Like pulling teeth to move your players. Ea fixed how u couldnt tell who was home away last year but failed lmao.

    When the scoreboard pops up, home team is on the left.

    Youw own team is always on the left ? I think if the first screen pop's up and there is just one team, you are home. If not, you're away ?

    I went 23-3 last weekend playing almost everything away. Its such a 'myth' home is easier or better. It is frustrating to see ppl back out instead of just playing.

    At first it was only good players playing at home, now every scrub is doing it so the the likelihood of getting someone terrible is very high. Finished E3 myself, with 90% of the games away

    Yeah, almost every decent player cba with backing out for 10mins trying to find a home game.

    The people who do it are mainly some desperate gold players.
