Not sure I've ever experienced the sensation of a rivals match where there is little to no delay. Any tips, currently losing to woeful players because of it

    Avoid French players. 15+ years and they still use dial-up

    I cleared/reset the MAC on my Xbox and that seemed to help after the update. But could have been a coincidence.

    I'm literally leaving after 5 game mins as soon as I realise how bad the gameplay is each game. No way I'm handing anyone a free win if they're using a META dropback team

    The problem is in the server.
    Before the game starts it shows 3-4 green bars and there is a lag anyways.

    I think iv had lag/delay in like 3 games in Fifa 20. Yet everyoneelse on here apparently cant play the game because of it.

    Man you are one lucky motherf***er then. Turning with someone even as agile as Salah feels like I'm turning a truck that's stuck in cement

    It’s just the servers.

    I’ve had a few games where it’s been great, and then all of a sudden it goes to ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Passes not going where they’re aimed, huge button lag and skills still not registering etc.

    Sadly until ea invest in new/better/more servers were all ❤️❤️❤️❤️ until then.

    Same. It seems as though it’s the go-to excuse now. Crazy when most these guys are in the top 3 divisions and didn’t have any issues when they were smacking people about in d6

    Then Good luck to you mate. If 90% of people on here have delay then 90% of your opponents will likely have it & you should clear up online.

    I have delay in about 3/5 games and it’s very noticeable. The 2/5 I don’t have delay, there’s still something there but nothing that would effect the result I would say.

    I’ve not lost in about 15 games on rivals, but I’ve been lucky in some that’s for sure. I don’t like relying on luck, trying to switch players is a nightmare if your opponent is quick at passing side to side, whilst on the offence skill moves go out the window and basic build up play is the norm. Only times I can carve someone open is when I muscle memory the passes but it’s reliant on luck.

    At the minute for me there's a massive difference between day time and after 10pm at night. Night time is great during the day not really worth playing.
    My broadband tests are the same at both times.

    Tbf. I used to get this feeling in fifa 19. It got to the point where i didnt bother playing during the day as i fely like everything was aleays against me. Yet when id play 11pm onwards after work i would be wiping the floor with people. Still never had much lag/delay but just yhe way the games went.

    Delay in rivals has been rampant for me since it’s inception in 19 - was okay for about a week at start of game but since then it’s been horrific once more.

    WL gameplay was a joy to behold in comparison.. just a pain that I rarely get to play WL (once every 6 weeks if I’m lucky). Not been able to test that theory in 20 yet due to my life schedule but I imagine it’s the same.

    Don’t understand why it is that way.

    I’m beginning to blame the lag on the poor animation mechanics. Think about it, animation A begins and takes 1 second to complete.

    In that second, you input a skill move or tackle. Because the animation takes 1 full second to complete, anything you input is ignored during that animation.

    The game is broken. That’s all.

    This is a big thing that lots dont talk about. I came from Madden and "good" animations can make the differences in the game.

    It was also part of the language of their pitch notes
