    The new animation gives a real dopamine rush.

    Think I would fall asleep if I ever watched that.

    Animation is way too long even for trash cards.

    Nothing really.

    If I open fifa, I play. If I watch a stream, I want to see gameplay.

    But bags and Dan do like 30 leagues per day so for some people the menus are super appealing.

    Fifa one of those games that from gameplay you can hardly tell the best of the best from timmy down the road

    @Azof nah, the difference is huge. If you watch someone struggling for Gold 1 and then watch someone play rivals at 3k it's super obvious imo.

    Compared to most other games the skill gap is absolutely tiny.

    Yes and no.

    Yes, because the AI does so much, but also no because there aren't many games with a gap as huge between a pro and a casual. Even Silver players in WL aren't really casuals anymore. A true casual would concede double digits each and every game against a pro and not win a single game out of 100 against him.

    Just further up the skillgap gets very slim.

    It's not even the packs part that's weird. It's just watching someone play a game you could be playing.

    And other people don't understand how you can watch sports. Each to their own I guess.

    I just watch others opening packs to see if I truly have as bad pack luck as I perceive I do or if it's just the same as everyone else's. Also to see what I can expect from certain packs.

    I also watch others open packs early on because I don't want to spend the money to open them myself.

    So then we as a community agree that streamers are just terrible people? I can get on with that.

    I have never watched a youtuber play any game to me personally it's really boring. i can't get my head around why people do it when I'd rather play the game myself. Opening packs is addictive because sometimes it's actually more fun than playing the game itself..

    I don’t sugarcoat this trash game Muzza sorry mate, if something is decent I’ll praise it but I honestly can’t see anything decent as of now with FIFA 20.
