This slow, delayed, sluggish game play, players not switching, not responding etc can not continue.

Year after year always the same problem. Its the biggest problem in Fifa beyond anything game play related

EA are penny pinching and not allocating enough resources to fix this issue.

This is problem effects a vast majority of players and needs to be addressed. As for these customers we simply can not use this product online even remotely close to as intended.

The community here should now start to create a big noise about this and continue to beat this drum until the issue is permanently fixed.

Ea are responsible for the online features of this product, these are currently faulty, in no other industry would customers have acceptance for a faulty product and we shouldn't either!


The Consumer Rights Act 2015

says goods must be:

Satisfactory quality.
Fit for purpose.
As described.


If a digital good is considered faulty, the Act gives consumers the right to repair or replacement, and the retailer must do this "within a reasonable time".

i am not asking for a refund, however a "reasonable time" frame to fix this issue has now clearly passed its been years and years, based on the Law in the United Kingdom and many other regions too, i think its clear that we would be untitled to a free copy of fifa 20 (for those that still want it, rather than a refund) and if the issue is not fixed in fifa 20 then a free copy for fifa 21 and this cycle should continue until the online game play meets the requirements you state that the product would deliver.

Fifa 19 online features have not been fit for purpose for a vast vast majority of the game cycle

Ea please please fix this problem

    While i definitely 100% agree with what you are saying and what you are trying to do, they dont give a flying **** what we think and expect us to just deal with whatever they give us. If you truly wanna stop having your pants pulled down by ea, don't buy 20. I know I'm not. Might give pes a go this year...

    this may be our only option, and if enough players follow suit, maybe PES can start to turns thing back to being the best football game again like the old days

    This is the straw that broke the camels back for me. Its blatant what there at.

    Been playing since 1996, fifa 20 will be the first one i dont buy.

    Its the only way things might change, people have to take a stand. And the only way is boycotting the next game.


    This cash cow cant keep milking for years, it eventually has to run out, then they might start to care. When its to late.

    Clearly they don’t listen to the EA community managers, so basically they don’t listen to the community at all.

    The speedup lag I have been encountering is beyond appaling. But there is a simple explanation. EA are focussing on trying to sell Fifa 20. I bet you they have pulled funds out of Fifa 19

    I think everyone agrees tbh, you can literally feel a difference between playing during the week to playing on sat-sun.

    Yeah i dont blame the likes of ea andy. Guy just gets **** all day and i doubt can change anything no matter how much he wants to, feel sorry for him sometimes. Its the money men at the top that are wrecking this game, has been for years.

    I'd say the game developers would love to put out a masterpiece of a fifa but they have both hands tied behind their back with using a forced engine to save money, the need to rip off fans at every turn to show good profits and the cheapass servers from 2008...

    A huge problem is that our main voices (YouTubers , twitch etc.) Don't really back up these problems.

    Often you'll see a video from them or part of their stream where they say these servers are awful game needs fixing etc. Then 2 minutes later they are doing a pack opening video or reviewing an SBC. I don't blame them, it's their job and we all do the same by keep on playing.

    I think for a lot of us FIFA is sort of an addiction and sadly that's very easy to capitalise on

    The servers are horrible because they’re using all the bandwidth to fix the fifa 20 servers.

    There are many words one could use to describe fifa 19. “Faulty” might be the most applicable yet.

    EA and this games industry is a law to itself - lets put it like this - i have given proof to the UK gambling commission that they are breaking the law - there law is loot is not gambling as it cannot be exchanged for real money - so i gave them that proof last year and its now escalated to the UK government - and it seems things are very slow - ie backhanders you know it

    just played one game of weekend league, its just not playable at the right now, (i did win the game but it was no fun, Zero)

    too much delay, too much button lag, too much normal lag, too unresponsive,

    the later into the game you go the worse it gets

    DR has been ridiculously slow I mean slooooooooooooow..
    horrible frustrating gameplay! I just want to go online and play a game of football without my team being hampered by irresponsive gameplay.
    Guess the only way to stop it is stop playing it...
