    Haven’t played really since the first month the game came out till the beginning of tots and it’s nice to know fifa doesn’t mean that much to me anymore.

    You can only take so many 90th minute rebound losses before you lose your ****.

    Not played for 3 weeks now, having played religiously for years. It’s amazing how much you can do in the time you waste on Fifa, my weekends are fun again.

    If FIFA is affecting you this much, it's definitely time to retire.

    Im surprised you havent retired yet with your lack of ability to be any good at the game.

    And I'm not surprised you would make an inflammatory, baseless accusation in an effort to garner the attention that you're so obviously deprived of in the other annals of your life.

    I am trying to retire and what I have noticed from my first fifa free week is that I am a much calmer and balanced person.

    Anybody else find that a few days off changes you?

    10000000%. I stopped playing in February and felt amazing. So much stress gone. I came back for 2 weekends the weekends of BPL TOTS sand Bundas TOTS, played about 25 total and I felt all the stress and irritability coming back. After 2 back to back losses coming off games where I had 3x as many chances and my opponents was scoring off bogus deflected tackles, that was me done. So I stopped, discarded my entire team. Just to ensure I had no urge to come back to FUT this year.

    Massive relief.

    Lmao. I mean too each their own. It’s just nice to know that even if I randomly decided to go back to play FUT, I “can’t” as I would no longer have the team for it, nor enough coins to build a competitive squad, and I’m damn sure not going to put the effort in at this point. But I’ve legitimately had no urge to play since I did. I’ve gone back to Football manager 2019 for my footballing game.

    It’s a shame because I love FIFA as far as playing football, so it sucks not to really have it. I’ve said since day one of EA Access that this was the worst FIFA imo, and I regret buying the game 3 weeks later. I won’t make that mistake again this year. If I feel it’s bad during access, I’m not spending the money on the game. It’s just not worth the stress and **** you get put through with the gameplay.

    Fifa 19 is the only game I’ve ever played where even when you’re winning, it feels like you’re losing.

    Here’s me tapping out to FUT 19.

    It means that you have your gender neutral reproductive organs removed so that you can run a non political party with unconscious bias.

    I hadn’t played in 5 months, came back and started to regret it, Rivals servers are so heavy and every game is just people spamming running fake shot, La Croqeta and 1st time 180 shooting! Roll on FIFA 20 :D

    Only if you blame people that have been sold single use plastics for several generations for it ending up in the sea.

    I'm also much calmer, and having now much more time to do what interests me the most. The more days pass the more resistance I have to play again, especially when I watch some YT with FIFA and see again the ridiculous gameplay (tricks, fighting with own controls, delays, and people celebrating irrationally unfair goals). Literally this game makes me sick now.

    I’ve been contemplating this all year to be honest... I’ve only played 150 games this year and returned after a 4 month break in May.

    Fast forward to today and this game stresses me out far too much, uninstalled the game and not playing again I think; especially after giving WL a try, I don’t enjoy playing.

    Deletion of club may follow soon.

    I’m not playing it again now unless it’s against friends. I can’t deal with the gameplay and it’s causing me too much stress when no game should do that. It’s not worth it.

    Wish the rest of us could do the same mate, problem is we all know we'll be back next fifa... & that's the real issue, any other game that was this bad we'd switch it off & not come back.
