The title speaks for itself.
I have recently started playing this game because my gf gifted it to me and this problem is particularly bothering me that I literally had to login to the forums and discuss this with other players.
I personally cannot come up with a logical explanation on why the game literally decreases USER Acceleration and Top Speed after conceding a goal. After conceding a goal the game becomes totally unplayable.
Imagine you're a goal down in the 15th minute against a weaker team (70 OVR avg.) with trash but fast wingers and you realize your players suddenly start running like 20-30% slower.
I really would like someone to explain how this can make the game more competitive against the AI.
I'm able to trash the AI in Legendary with my sliders significantly decreased. But a level higher in Ultimate the odds turn upside down and when you're unfortunate enough to concede a goal the game becomes unwinnable.
In my opinion, in a situation like mentioned above, the opposition can either back down to maintain the lead or push forward to look for the second goal. HOWEVER, my question is why the game intervenes at this point and changes USER sliders to make it more competitive for me? I do not believe there is no other way. I believe the mentioned scenarios can be implemented through dynamic tactics that change all the time depending on the situation.
I really cannot explain how my 88 Acceleration 91 Top Speed winger can be outrun by a 60 Acc. 65. Top Speed center back. This is surreal.
I've checked several discussions on many platforms regarding not only this but other issues as well like the fatigue rate for USER team in career mode, etc. and the replies from EA are just laughable like "Please change your defensive tactics from constant pressure to something else, turn off overload the ball side and press in game.". I've run across this more times than I can remember and the CPU team after scoring a goal can chase my team all over the pitch like mad dogs and at the end of the game still have 80-85% of their stamina remaining. It's literally like they can play another 90min match. This cannot be explained in any other way than accepting the fact that career mode in Fifa 20 is totally ruined.
