How come you can play teams like Man City and beat them easy but league 2 teams and league 1 play like Barcelona it gets very annoying! never used to be like that.

    FIFA has been like that for some time. It must have something to do with the flawed way in which the game
    is programmed to determine the match difficulty.

    EA programmed the game so the match difficulty isn't based on real football factors such as current team/player form, opponent quality, the priority/importance of the match for the CPU team but instead based it on a win/loss cycle, possibly also based on your teams current form and league position. So for example, if you beat Man City 3-0 in your previous match, the CPU will more likely put Huddersfield in beast mode in your next match than if you had lost 1-0 to Man City.

    Although obviously things such as opponent quality do have some effect on the difficulty of a match, there is clearly an overriding factor that heavily influences how the CPU plays each match.

    I agree it happens all the time, it also happens when your team is on a massive unbeaten run in the league, and you play against a team in bottom half of the table and you lose the match.
    Which means the second place team always stays 3-5 points behind you.
