How/why do you actually bother playing this mode? We have just had a baby girl a month ago, all going great but every time i stay up late n play this game when they are sleeping i play the same tactic over n over... supposed to relieve stress chilling playing ps but im nearly at the point of just leaving it alone. Be interested to hear others experiences?
Not to be a troll, but if you want to relieve stress and chill, why not play something that is NOT competitive, because competitive games are generally not stressful or chilling, they're the exact opposite.
Lol, ok, every sports game is competitive, sorry im not going to play sims.
Yes, most sports video games have a competitive player vs player mode, and they are by definition competitive, and GENERALLY, I'd say in most cases, a competitive game isn't chilled or stress relieving instantly, how can it be competitive but chill? You have to outplay, outsmart, out think another person, that doesn't sound chill at all.
Its chill when you win haha
Loved fifa since it came out way back in 93 when i was a kid, n they dont pay attention to other game modes anymore. Game doesnt seem competetive to me now just seems repetetive? Boring and stressful at the same time but cant quite let go n just play something else...
Yeah that's fair enough, it's repetitive because it's competitive and the repetition comes from using the same meta systems, to be as competitive as possible, if that makes sense
I get the feeling though, but playing FUT Online won't change, maybe try normal online Seasons, the players there are less sweaty/meta/repetitive
But this fifa, i decided to quit and spend more time with my daughter. Instead of playing WL games, i am now going out with my daughter. We already went to the beach, kids’ parties and indoor playgrounds these past weekends.
Game is not worth it anymore. With all the bugs, delays and re-skinning of fifa year in and year out, fifa is no longer worth my time. Hopefully you’ll see how happy my daughter is, when i go out with her. You do the same and you’ll feel you pack cr7.
I do no such thing thank you very much!
I hang out with my kids and just get as many games as I can in when they sleep
I don't enjoy it. I dont know why I still play, habbit I gues, been playing since 95.
Thanks for the advice, thinking its time to let it go n concentrate on my family, especially if im not getting any joy out of it! Cant wait to be able to do those things with my daughter when shes a bit older
Obviously time with the fam is important, i love chilling with my little dude an he is only 8 months old.
But as dads, it can be a stressfull life between work and family responsibilties. It's important to have something for you. Doesn't have to be this garbage game but something that you enjoy snd find relaxing.
This may be a generational thing, but it's important, is that I've found success in life and appreciate spending time with my daughter and enjoying the things I've worked hard for that I have never cared about beating some other person online. I've always played games as an escape from the outside world. Not a reminder of some other realm to measure up against another.
While most may argue that the entire purpose of this mode is to engage with others, the way it has been implemented and evolved brings out the worst in a community already obsessed with winning at all costs. Toxic is being kind to what FIFA has become.
For it to be chill it can't just be about winning to you, it must be about solving problems. Exposing your self to the limitations of self expression when combated again a pure antagonist. Through this battle finding peace, or a semblance of it, comes from disassociating winning from success. Once you've leave the mind to ponder the challenges it faces without responding to is aching to be the Victor you transcend the winner loser dichotomy. Here you will achieve the pure FIFA force and become the unstoppable elite. It's simple, really, it stresses you out because of your expectations let them go and explore the game and make your own and that will be beautiful.
That's basically what I said
If you can’t stand playing the computer and need that online play then maybe try seasons. I actually like playing seasons with 3 and 4 star teams. You’ll find some great games.
If FIFA still drives you crazy, go get Forza Horizons, think it’s still free (Xbox anyways) and that game is a lot of fun when your just looking to relax and take it easy.
I just don’t take Fifa that seriously, it is a video game after all. I like to throw it on in the evening after kids in bed and slam some beers while playing. Splash some fifa points from time to time because I like to gamble, and trade on the web app when I am in airports/hotels traveling for work.
I never have enough free time to play an entire WL, so I don’t worry about that which I suppose takes some stress out of the game. The rewards don’t mean much to me anyway, if I wanted to have an elite team I’d just buy the fifa points.
Im still trying to get back into the same level as I was in 17-18 but gold 2 with three games to spare both times (loosing the first then stopping). Usually though I just have a goal for WL, good enough rewards. Usually silver 1. Doesn't take that much time.
And rivals, it's all dandy. I still don't play it that serious. I'm div 4 going up towards 3 but also down towards 5 depending on mood and if I just try stuff. The rewards in 4-5 is also good enough. I'm not trying to go pro so why bother.
In older FIFA i usually won div 1 every other week with a new formation, but if the rewards were better then I would probably never win it. Just gotta find the balance. When reading forum threads and judging how people play, they all seem to think they are almost going pro.. can't see their own flaws and try to hard to win and not having fun while winning just a tad bit less.
GL mate. Find that balance and family first.
I also find online seasons to be a far better game mode as all the sweatyness is removed via slower game speed and no chem cards.
