Something weird happened today

Trying to fulfill the objectives Werner and Gold was the usual nightmare dozens of games skipped after 1 goal against me until I found players who I could compete with and then the invariable late losses and late ties grinding for hours until I completed all the objectives.

So I turned on the game today and I have never experienced such great play from my team. They are actually shooting well not hitting posts etc they are running well turning well and i am actually winning games in decent numbers.

Never experienced this in FIFA 20 what happened today? Any ideas?

    It's a conspiracy by bad, greedy EA to get you to buy 21. Or something.

    So basically...

    Winning = game is good and fair
    Losing = game is bad and fixed

    Mate, that’s literally this forum every day, all year. There’s obviously issues with the game, but the amount of people on here who feel they’re entitled to win is unreal.

    You're in division 10, unless you're the single worst player on the game you'll probably hit a run of easier matches at some point.

    The fighting spirit is strong with this one.

    Liverpool v Milan 2005, TZinc in charge. Right lads I know it's only halftime but let's just leave it there, they're clearly above our level.

    They failed miserably in scoring with a German though.

    I really believe EA purposely cripple the game near the end of its game cycle to make the newer version look so much better. Don’t forget, the worse the current gameplay becomes the better the newer version will seem. Why else would we have a major maintenance schedule exactly when the Fifa 21 beta was going live?

    The game hasn’t changed in any way whatsoever in the last few months.

    No the gameplay was different yesterday NOT because I was winning but because I was able to move smoothly complete passes get scores also was able to play good defense --- as opposed to playing in mud like most games. It FELT different.

    I don't mind being beaten by better players I do mind getting beaten by worse players while my players feel like mud and don't move right.

    I am not the worst players in Div 10 because I do beat players who are worse then me I may have beaten a couple better but in that case I didn't deserve it it was their players in mud.

    My record is 600 50 900 - among those "wins" were many games of farming so they don't really count if that's the case my record is worse than that. Maybe 1 in 12 2 in 12 players I face in Div Rivals I can beat.

    I'm all for plucky determination, and I'll always back an underdog, but I'm thinking this game might not be for you.

    LOLOLOLOL!!!!

    I would say this game is BARELY for me - but this game is definitely NOT for the people I BEAT lol.

    Always trying to improve I am trying to do a lot of switching on defense and slowing down on offense. Sometimes I feel there is some TRICK I am missing with regards to how controls are used just press the buttons some way I am not doing. I used to think it was skilling but some winners claim they don't skill and still do well.

    Of course there is another part to this game and that is the part I am addicted to: opening packs and doing sbc and making teams etc

    Because FIFA 21 utilises the exact same servers as FIFA 20. I imagine they would have had to do some work to accommodate that.

    And I haven't felt any change in FIFA 20, in all honesty. Same issues it always had.

    It's just a shame the can-do attitude is for show, though, given that he quits the match the second he concedes a goal first.

    Am guessing 1 goal vs anyone on here would be enough to work out his issues :lol:

    "This version is terrible, I absolutely need to buy the next version" - flawless logic, I think you're really on to something here.

    Every lose in Fifa is well-deserved. You have 12 ingame minutes to change the result in your favor. If you cant to that you dont deserve to win. The game has some issues but its for everyone. There is a reason why there are players who can get elite every week.
