I am FIFA lunatic sometimes, and often searching for positive side of things where it is hard to see one.
So, while I understand people frustration about matching up against much more skilled opponents, there is at least one benefit from this.
When I play against someone more skilled, and getting destroyed, I always learn what do they do differently from me. What formation they switch, how they team move on the radar, how much space my free players have (pressure or not). How opponent use fake runs and combinations.
Things like that helped me to get better already, as now I have changed my tactics slightly and know how to counter some aspects of their game. Especially pressure.
So it is always there to learn.
Also, I don't have lag or delays most of the time, so I'm blessed, but I know it is bad sometime.
