Patched this game to death

I’ve seriously never seen a company that literally breaks their games and make the worst version possible with each passing update. How do you even do this? It seems harder to ruin a game than leave it how it was near launch. Imaging putting forth this much effort to destroy some project you’re working on. You would quickly realize how poor of a job you’re doing and you’d stop.

    It's like Tom and Jerry

    Find a problem, chase it and patch it. Unnecessary cause more problems and then need to patch them.

    Literally just listen to the community. Better stable servers, less ai input and content. They're so petrified that kids will stop playing if they get beat.

    Funnily enough I played the demo earlier at my nephew's. Was a nice reminder of what could have been and why I bought the game in the first place.

    It's funny, when you compare the actual game behaviour with all the pre-release info from EA, it's unrecognisable now. Literally the only mechanic left is the crab walking (I'm not including nerfed headers as they just randomised them)

    The first patch was the best. It is like this every year. I am sure ea has certain metrics that they use to adjust the game to where the average win loss ratio per player is as close to .5 as possible. In other words, make it progressively less skill based to the appropriate level to sell the most packs.

    It must be tough working on Fifa, everyday some people complain and their complaints contradict each other like:
    OMG this game is so slow / OMG why is the game so fast?!

    OMG I can’t pass at all / OMG Ping Pong passing is back!

    I can’t defend my defenders are crap / Defence is OP I can’t attack!

    I can’t score a single goal! Shooting is broken / My opponent scores *insert type here* goal. Nerf shooting!

    There’s no winng for any of us, not until someone grows some balls at EA and puts down a stable.

    This exactly... except I think you mean “puts down a stake”... unless stable is the vernacular where you are from

    But bro it's exactly how the game is.

    So now suddenly out of nowhere my players don't defend, they refuse to get goal side, and run behind every opponent; yet my opponents can have 8 in their box and AI trackling and tackling intercepting and blocking everything.

    This is fact. It's not about git gud or whatever other nonsese. My players are playing and behaving completely differently not only to opponent's players, but also compared to themselves and how they previously played. When you have this there is no denying that the game is wildly broken.

    It's not just me that experiences this.

    Sure it's fine for you few who have perfect gameplay 24/7, but if any of you tried to play on one of our accounts you'd not win a single game. It's literally impossible.

    This is insanely ridiculous. There's no game where this sort of massive swing in gameplay experience happens.

    Why does this happen? We don't even get any kind of explanation. We just get another kit SBC.

    There is zero consistency.

    Yeah, so many of us said it was okay. We basically begged them to not do what they do every year and look what happened. Spit right in our faces with this.
