Worst WL ever. Have teams been nerfed?

I usually get elite 3/gold 1 on a bad weekend but I've only scraped gold 2 this weekend.

The gameplay has felt sluggish in every game, the worst I've ever actually experienced. The players feel like they're walking through water, they've went weak and get pushed off the ball with just the opponent looking at them, shooting has been well off key, Ronaldo missing so many sitters and the opposition goalkeeper/the post getting in the way of most shots. My 92 rated squad have turned into a below par bronze team it seems.

I lost a few games to genuinely good elite players but I've lost a handful of games against people that you can tell dont know how to play fifa very well, silver/lower gold rank players. I've had so many more shots and the share of possession but there seems to be some kind of force beyond my control stopping my team playing to their full potential this weekend. Tempted to just sell up my team and come back in a month after TOTS prices have settled.

Anyone else experiencing the same?

    I've played a lot of people who just cross, cross, cross and eventually score 2 headers

    I've only played 12 games this weekend and I cant see me playing anymore.
    I've been experiencing exactly what you've described myself.

    I am experiencing the same. It is getting
    worse every week. They want us to buy FP, it feels like EA are deciding who wins

    Yes ,im usually gold 1/2 but stopped at 12 wins....from 11-2 went on something like 12-8.....but my frustration is not because of the loses . Its about loses from 3-0 and against gold teams where i clearly saw im a better player and could not score than he scores from 2 shots 2 times

    Edit: and the amount of blocked shots by opponent ai it was ridiculous...so many good shots where his defender jumped into it

    I thought exactly this but didn't want to say it

    I noticed that their flash special packs on Friday didn't sell out as they used too, maybe if they didn't lower pack weights last year then maybe I'd consider putting my hand in my pocket. Definitely not now after they nerf my team, total blindside.

    As more people leave the game your going to play skill spammers more often as there the only ones left.

    It was miserable. I get between 17-20 wins. Was 9-10 then the game started favoring me and won 8 in a row. I didn’t even have to try. Any shot that didn’t get blocked was a goal after my tenth loss.

    Yeah i was using untradeable team plus nif de Bruyne and Aguero...
    Looks like I'll just sell up I could get the same amount of wins with a full nif team...

    I've managed to get to 17 wins with 7 games left, not in the mood to play anymore, every game has been a struggle, players not passing as they should, delay, just as you said sluggish gameplay.

    This is how it looks playing FUT right now.

    Players not moving or moving slowly, lag, delay.

    Can play Five games in a row where it just awful and you have little chance, end up wanting to change players and formation.
    Then suddenly the opposite happens where you can do no wrong.

    I leave you to draw your own conclusions as do not want another posting ban

    Worst ever hands down. Every single game I played a **** celebrating his AI assisted goals. Good fun. Gonna take a few weeks off from weekend league didn’t enjoy myself these last few days.

    Think I had about Eight games where I was down 1 0 inside 3 minutes without aOne of my players touching the ball

    I don't know why everyone is complaining. I had a great weekend. Gameplay was smooth, so much better than last weekends FUT Champs.

    Defence was strong, lethal finishing, barely missed a shot, team was excellent, acheived some good rewards.

    But then I was playing RDR2 having bought it to stop wasting time on FIFA. Seems it was a good decision.

    One of the worst weekends yet for delay and lag. I’ve 91 Dinho, 93 Bergkamp and CR7 as my front 3 and they all felt clunky and slow. Played an online single game and it was much better but WL and DR have been awful.

    Worst performance also for me. Rubberband was in use in many games. Maradona, Scholes and lampard could not pass or receive one. Ironically since i went Fack That and gung ho with argentinian neverheards i started winning. Nice!maxresdefault.jpg

    Nothing has changed. You have just played against better players. Sometimes you have a good week and sometimes you land unlucky.

    When you lose a game on more that one occasion when you've had 15+ shots and the opponent has 3 or less and wins 1-0 or 2-0. This game does not recognise the better player. Skill gap is non existent

    Overall peoples team just got better and people know how to abuse the meta (crosses, el tornado, headers, timed finish, drop back and counter)
