Simple solution for home players only

Once you enter the play match screen, if you backout you get a loss however the other guy does not get a win.

Should deter people from cherry picking.

Thoughts?

    I’d think the simple solution is for EA to actually fix it

    Then they could simply just remove all those pre-match screens (except with the opponent's squad) and automatically start the match, as the only real decision you make in them is choosing whether you want to play with/against your home or away kit

    At the moment we have 3 screens.

    A Home and Away ready up screen (Pointless, get rid)
    A kit selection screen (Obviously needed)
    A team management ready up screen (Pointless)

    Should be you press start to find a match > Kit selection (with latency indicator and you can't tell if your home or away) > Opponents team screen (load screen) > Match.

    They should just be able to make both join the screen at the same time so there’s no way to tell.

    Would be incredibly harsh to get a loss if you saw a less than perfect connection, your phone rang or the menus were lagging.

    What if you back out because of a poor latency?

    Tough but still should be given the loss

    While you're at it, please also make it possibile to remove the goddam info box on the upper left corner (nobody cares if it's Mark Noble 100th game, especially when it's covering your wingers).

    And remove of nerf La Croqueta because it's destroying the game.

    My suggestion I think is simple...

    EA makes it so that each player will play a equal amount of home/away games regardless.

    For example, out of 10 games 5 will be home 5 will be away. So no matter what you do, you'll be matched with someone who has a home game to play.

    People's thoughts???

    Why does it matter whether you play home (or away)?

    It doesnt but if you and me only play games at home we would never face eachother, this is how lots of people dodge eachother.

    If I play every match without backing out because I wanna play home. Then I would play 1 home and 3 away. Don’t know why. But it’s like that in rivals in div 2.
    I’m backing out like the rest in wl

    It's just annoying being able to get a match because idiots back out on everymatchup for 10 minutes.

    It's stupid people that think there's some advantage to it or just copying idiot YouTubers.

    Personally I like playing a mix of home and away. It should just be fixed that you will play as many home and away games and there's no avoiding it.

    So... if Someone backs out 5 times to get 5 home games, no matter how many times they back out there next games will be away games.

    If you back out you cannot try again for 30 seconds.

    I'd rather be able to see opponents badge and kit. Avoid all German and Dutch players. Would make my WL 3x longer but thoroughly more enjoyable.

    Does it say if you’re away? I always seem to be the home team

    I’m thinking about when you see the other players team. Silly me.

    So true! Just lost my chance of elite this wl because of German monkeys playing only on good connection to the servers.

    That really pisses me off

    You are always on the left side of the lobby screen whether you are home or away.

    There is a way to tell, but I’m not going to write it on here because it’s annoying and pointless.

    All they need to do is implement an artificial delay for when you load up. Don't show the screen until both players are present. Make every match look like an "away" match.

    @EA_Andy

    This is also true. I have 4 bars, I'm from Portugal and get matched alot with the 5 bars Germans. I cant do nothing all game. I have messaged alot of these players just to ask how was there gameplay and they always say "perfect, no delay".
