Seriously, who comes up with the idea in needing to actually win a game while scoring with certain players from certain clubs

Do these guys not understand how bad this game is? IE - gameplay/servers/lag/delay etc

Not to mention facing teams which will now have the best defender cards in the game never mind best goalkeeper cards

Why not just keep it simple as in scoring a goal with a player, why make it win the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ game aswell?

Winning a game is a struggle at best with players using drop back, 4-2-3-1 and passing it around the back 9 times out of 10!

People say go down to lower divisions and do it....yes fair enough but then you are losing out on things such as packs rewards and its also not fair on those guys who are not as good in those divisions

Seriously, wise the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ up and stop making these things so bloody awkward. Also, its not as if we can sell the rewarded player and ❤️❤️❤️❤️!

    It is to increase "engagement" and make you frustrated to spend more

    Their data probably showed too many 14-14 scorelines after the serie a milestone

    That actually makes so much sense to be fair but it shouldn't be the case. It's not to say that the players we are getting are high rated players aswell. lol

    I'd rather burn a £50 note than spend it on anything related with this game but so true!

    Jesus don't say that. It's EA for crying out loud, they'll actually be that sadistic and make us do that!

    It's a free card that you can CHOOSE to do.

    If you don't like the conditions then don't grind for the card.

    Simples

    I accept your point yes 100% but why make a card so difficult to get which is neither high rated or trade-able is what im asking. This game is a pain with all the problems I have listed above never mind trying to do these objectives on top of that.

    If it was score a goal only it wouldn't be so bad. Some folk will say people will just let others score and so on in games. The way this community(majority of it) people would never let anyone score goals never mind win a game to complete something and if EA think thats the case, they're as dumb as we thought

    It has to be wins.

    The player base just cheats otherwise. There is no other option

    Precisely this. Listened to a podcast with Choboi on it recently (I get bored at work, ok!) and he explained that EA’s numbers show we just play more when they force us into Rivals to do these objectives.

    They COULD make it nicer for us to do (they could remove the win condition and cap the number of goals you can get in any one match, for instance), but they don’t need to. Once someone starts one of these objectives, they’ll just grind and grind it until they get it done.

    Exactly this. Their aim is to get you to play more, and they’ll do whatever their data tells them leads to more play time.

    I like the win requirement, with the design of rivals you will win and lose about the same amount of games (in the long run) so it's not that hard. The Politano one was way too easy imo and caused (I would assume) a lot of people to simply quit before kickoff unless their opponent also had 11 different teams in the starting 11.

    The rewards could have been better (besides Politano) and the distribution of the "score in a game..." and the "score in a win..." which is now simply decided by last year's IRL ranking. You have to win two games while scoring with a team that has no offensive gold players (eg Nimes Olympique) and only score in two games to complete Monaco (with Ben Yedder, Gelson Martins etc)....
