Fifa can no longer be classed as a football game!!!

I mean don’t get me wrong, has it ever been, but the way the game is at the moment........

The game is so full of bs moments and dodgy mechanics it’s hard to understand how the developers can even think about calling it a football sim.

If you’re good at button bashing and spamming certain meta bs moves (directional nutmeg) then consider this the game for you. If you like to pass about and play football don’t bother. Every game tonight has been against low depth pressure abusers who spam the bridge move and directional nutmeg. Trying to play my passing game using the odd ball roll and fake shot but it’s completely hopeless. With his players all over mine like a rash and his box so full of players I haven’t even got room to fart.

I’ve been around div 1 for most of this year except for the odd losing streak but the game just feels like it can be manipulated to the extent that football doesn’t even come into it.

    😂 just learnt the nutmeg one it’s very rewarding to say the least. The amount of cheap goals you get coz it freezes the defender is so wrong lol

    This FIFA is moving further away from sim. The skill moves are making the game like street fighters.

    The gameplay is just annoying to say the least... Nobody enjoys playing against a opponent with good gameplay while yours is crap.... Every time you clear the ball it goes straight back to them.

    So much more bs than just through balls. They should be able to make a game that plays equally between two players or at least match two players together that will result in them both having an even game. When playing in a game where both players are of a similar skill set, the result is 100% decided by connection. Try having a gage with someone you know is of a similar level to you......

    I’ve tried this with a mate and over 10 games played after he invited half and I invited the other half, 5 of the games were in his favour and 5 in mine.... and it was very obvious when the connection was not in you’re favour, felt by both of us. You could argue that without any connection problems then the results may have been the same and it’s all swings and roundabouts but that’s not an excuse as to how bad this game has become.

    Imagine the players accually changes their playstyle and "building a team"
    Back in FUT11/12 u could face different unique teams and people played with 11 players.

    17,18,19,20,21 u play different players, with same team and pretty much the same styles. And it's with 5 stars, 90+ pace and strikers at CDM and u don't really need a middle man between your passes. Now it's like from CB to Striker in 1 pass.

    Cuz, everything on Fifa are like automatic. Try one game with manually passes, crosses, tackles and shooting.
    and see how much passing/shooting % u get.

    Totally agree with all points but on top of that, why the fook when you block a passing lane does your player let the ball go through their legs 9 times out of 10? Automatic block tackle attempts at the wrong time results in a striker getting through 1 on 1. Player changing jumps here there and everywhere regardless who you select. Shooting has been op and rocket like from the beta. ( give your opinion.....means nothing). More goals caused by bad gameplay, doesn't make it more fun compared to boring fifa 20. The game is never balanced. It's either attack or defence from each new game version. Why? If I'm better at football and creating chances, I win. That's how football should be. If a player with 65 shooting scores against a 90 plus keeper, what's the point of stats? Don't need them!! Gk's...might as well not have 1. Rocket shots will fly in everytime. I just personally don't think the fifa team understands football as a whole. Yeah, we all want a fun game to play but a fun, fair, balanced, game where all stats and tactics produce a win. Not on connection or meta bs to win. I'd happily be beat 6 0 if its down to my opponents skill level and not because the ball hits 15 players both posts and back to unmarked striker to tap in from 2 yards.

    Rant over😀

    Pes was always my game pre fifa 07 and they've a new game next year but I doubt it'll be up to scratch to ultimate team. Volta, the journey nobody cares about. People like career mode, pro clubs (not me personally), or ultimate. That's it, don't waste money on other modes and use the 100 billion on making these modes function properly. Why annoy your fan base? I just generally don't understand it? Ea are just either so out of touch or just arrogant.

    There's too many fundamentals to make this game not fit for a release imo. Fine if you create a crap game with crap mechanics fine, but then you go online and face so many different types of gameplay due to the connecton imbalances. What is actually the end goal from EA here? just give the licenses to a competent games producer who want can create a balanced game instead of some ❤️❤️❤️❤️ casino game.

    Because is always one sided and every time I’m having a horrible gameplay my opponent seems to have smooth gameplay..., if you understand what I mean...Everyone points finger to the servers but if we are both playing on the same server. How come my opponent doesn’t seem to have delay or lag..The game is a mystery we’ll never know what’s causing it.

    I remember saying the exact same thing this time last year and yet here I am..... and this is the problem. Any other gave franchise and I’d have just not bought back into it until I’d seen some major overhaul. If we all keep buying back into this crap then EA will just keep making it. Why do they give a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ if some of us don’t get fair gameplay...... they’ve had another record breaking year..... I wouldn’t change a thing, would you?

    Icons are a huge part of why the game got mudded as well. Before icons the game was different overall.

    Chem styles need removing. I don't think they help the mechanics of the game or the need to work towards better players via trading. I get why they're in for the casual player but as seen in last 2 tots content, Ea can give people better players for casual teams. Just give more options through the SBC's.

    Couldn't agree with OP more. I just seem to get matched against division 1 players now who are glued to my every player and trick after trick. I don't mind the tricks if they want to do that but how they stick to your players for every situation is baffling.

    Last night I was shooting on goal and you could see my men backing off rather than following up till I managed to get them under control.

    I'll never be division 1, the odd season in 2 is best I can hope for but player switching, high pressure and pathetic AI need sorting. They won't

    This is about the NFL franchise, but:

    EA until 2025 has the exclusive right to make more simulation-based games based on the tournament.

    Maybe it's the same for Fifa 😱

    I’d just turn it off. No time for anyone that plays like that. However, one of my few joys in this game is playing someone who spams skill, dominating through playing regular football and the all of a sudden they stop skilling or just try the exploits. Break their backs, make them humble 😂

    The game is very toxic in itself that’s why the player base is toxic...I hope whoever designed the game can sit down with a controller and get into a fut champ or Rival match to play for couple of hours losing every match because gameplay favours the other person...Every match players feel heavy, button delay and see if they will enjoy the challenge.😁😁

    Not been a football game for many years (can't comment on 20 as never touched)
    17 was the last acceptable one for me, low driven never bothered me as that is the hardest shot for a gk to save.
    15 was the last time I had fun in fifa.

    As @All4fun1991 has said the main issue, especially for me is the one sided delay, how can it be an eSport when the person with the better connection ends up worse off when cause someone got a connection free with a tin of beans so I have to suffer for it.

    But that aside every team is the same, it's all meta scum, I want to use Alan Shearer but can't cause of how this game is, he should be amazing not nah cannot use him cause everything needs to be 90+ pace
