Just played my first draft of the year.

There is literally no lag.

Skill moves work every time.
Headers work so much better.

What is going on?

Try it and you'll see what I mean.

I was playing draft to try and get some more first owner cards for ICON SWAPS.

Before you say it's chemistry or Icons, I didn't have any icons and could only get 90 Chem on my draft so it's not that.

    Draft is incredible, feels like a completely different game and opponents aren’t toxic too, I’m doing draft only and made a mil already

    Wrong, they're all on dedicated servers. Draft doesn't have skill based matchmaking, has location based matchmaking. You're more likely to be matched against high ping unstable connections in Fut Champions and in the higher divisions in Rivals.

    Did they change it this year?

    Cause last year Rivals was p2p, not dedicated.

    Rivals was dedicated servers last year too, I know this because I've a netduma router, it tells me when I'm on dedicated or peer to peer. Draft was on peer to peer last year, for about half of the games cycle, they changed to dedicated servers and tweeted about it, friendlies were on peer to peer in Fifa 19.

    Ahh ok I didn't realise, hadn't had a need to monitor or check it for ages.

    Really wish they'd ❤️❤️❤️❤️ off with changing the game speed at times then, I like the normal/medium speed.

    So what’s causing the incredibly sluggish gameplay in rivals? So much delay.

    If its peer to peer i dont understand. My broadband is 185mb fibre

    Draft is dedicated servers I suspect they are using Microsoft Azure or AWS for it as they have so many data centres everywhere but so it should be as you have to use money or in game currency to play draft you shouldn’t be disadvantaged.

    I just don’t get why they don’t use dedicated servers for all the other game modes well I guess I do since I work in IT as cloud data centres charge each time data leaves the centre with the amount of FUT games played it would be add a shed load of cost to EA’s opex

    Hm, makes me want to play draft. The whole mode is just brilliant, just the barrier of entry 15k is a little bit high. It can easily be the most fun of all modes.
