Hello Fifa friends,

Fifa 19 and 20 were so bad that this year I decided not to buy Fifa 20. Still, I come to the forum from time to time to see what people are saying. At first , people were very happy with the gameplay and now I see lots of complaints here and on reddit.

After the first weekend league and after a weeks of rivals , I wanted to ask how does it feel to play the game on a high level, and by that I mean, high elo: Division 1 or 15+ wins in weekend league. This was my greatest complaint on Fifa 19 and specially 20. The game was bearable, sometimes even enjoyable when played casually.But division 1 and those last game for Elite were extremely stressful

    They’re defensive.... barely ever have games above 5 shots in the whole game between both opponents

    Fun. What else one would expect from a video game?

    I was thinking it was the opposite. I was checking Futbin stats and the goal ratio seemed to be way higher than last year. But is is somewhat fun or is it defensive and boring?

    Yes. But if you are playing at the highest level, it’s not about fun. It’s about winning any at cost.

    I mean... it’s better than last year, last game most of my games finished 0-0 or 1-0 this year at least there’s 2 goals in most games

    You lose focus for 1 second and it’ll cost you, which is how it should be

    I didn't buy the game. I don't have much time to watch youtubers or streamers right now, so I decided to ask here. And besides that Fut champs channel is top 100, elite 1 level. I was an elite 2/3 player

    This is exactly why I didn't like it. I was hoping that maybe there was a change in direction , but apparently not :/

    I mean.... it is better than the last 2 FIFA’s by a mile tbh...

    Auto blocks however are cranked up to the max...

    I see, I have heard about auto-blocks. Have you noticed any other exploits or overpowered stuff that might break the gaming experience?

    Don’t see it changing much. Community seems to like trying to win and being competitive. After the wl and rivals change people don’t want to play rivals for fun unless their is rewards on the line.

    It is a complex question but do you think it is impossible for both things to coexist?

    I mean, is it impossible to play a game in a competitive manner and still have fun? I am not a gamer myself, but I am friends with some elite players in FPSs and RTSs and they have fun, so perhaps it is not too much to ask

    I don’t really think there are any exploits in this game at all... everything is defend able.

    Refs are terrible though, they call soft pens but you can get clobbered and nothing happens...

    The gameplay itself is quite decent (apart from the blocks)

    I mean I would play divisions for fun. Look at all the comments about the wl change though. Most responded with no way would they play for fun. It needs to be competitive and have rewards.

    I suppose if you want fun play friendlies.

    Thanks for the replies ,sir. It looks promising, I might consider buying the game when the next gen comes out.

    I believe the key it to have a fun gameplay. I respect to your opinion, but most people agree that Fifa 19 and 20 didn't have a fun gameplay. If people do not want to play rivals just for the sake of playing, than it means the only fun aspect of the game is team building and card collecting which shows how poor is the gameplay (which is the most important aspect for me)

    The gameplay is fun though much better than past years. People want ea to add more games because they can’t play enough with the cap. It’s just it can’t be for fun it has to be competitive and with rewards which is why it confusing the community would take that stance.
