    that is the point - you can, but you shouldnt. There should be a code of conduct. They have positions - play them in those oppositions. I dont think it should even be an option.....

    exactly ea should make it so a player cannot be played in a position which they dont play as in rm can only play rm/rw/rf

    I can't agree with this simply because players in real life might play across a variety of positions to a competent level.

    What should happen is if a player is a proven natural in several positions, say RW, ST and Cam, then they should have the chem in those positions.

    Stat penalties should be applied for not playing in natural positions, as an example, some were using Bales winger card as a CDM several years ago and it was very affective, that is something that shouldn't happen.

    This was a conversation a few years back.

    After pages of discussion - the preferred method would be for each card to have a number of positions. Those they play regularly, those they can play but dont usually and those they cant play - each category changing how chem works. Regularly they have 10 chem (boost), irregularly they have 4 (no effect) and not at all they have 0 (lose stats).

    The stats they loose would be ALL stats, so -4 in EVERY catagory. If you WANT to use Bale in a CDM role fine, but he has -4 pace, -4 acceleration, -4 passing - 4 tackling etc

    So a LB might also play RB a lot (aspilaqueta, cancello for instance) so could have 10 chem in either slot. Cancello would also get 4 chem at CMD/CM as well. Wingers such as sterling get 10 chem both sides, 4 at CAM but 0 at striker.

    A card would have SETS of position, their prime (in green so full chem) their secondary (yellow so 4 chem) and all the rest are deemed as red - so 0 chem.

    This system isnt that hard to instigate at all - and means players reflect where they do - or cam play in real life and where they just cant. Stops Kante being a striker for full chem and moved in game for instance. Or Ronaldo at CDM for the same reason.

    In the case of Rashford, Hed get full chem at LW/LF and 4 at striker.

    The problem with that is that EA doesn’t watch football at all to know about that, but that’s what MLB The Show does. For example, players have a primary and 1-2-3-4 or more secondary positions, depends where they play.

    Delay is huge impacting gameplay.

    Early time all fifa games it runs great, after some time delay kicks in. EA should fix this broken game!

    I’m 37 and agree with every one of these in my scenario. Still a Div 1/ Div 2 player but it’s getting harder and harder with each passing year.

    But my main issue has been that i try to play Fifa like football rather than like a video game. Funnily, it’s one of the reasons that I’m seeming to enjoy this year’s one over than previous years.

    See - my methodology as well. Its a football game, play it like football.....but no, winning at all costs, by any means fair or foul until it doesnt resemble the beautiful game at all seems to be how most view it.

    And Why?????

    So they can get better rewards, for better cards they will continue to use in the wrong places and not play football.

    its beyond me - honestly.

    Shoddy servers,can have 10 ping and still get the connection warning at the top of the screen.
  • For me it's the ai defending my last game was all over him playing sum amazing tika taka but ai kept bailing him out. When he win ball was one of worst players av played he just ran with ball like his life depended on it.

    It's we're we are at on fifa tbh I like game but every game is ptb counters there no varity in play styles and with no attacking ai is bad they always focus on defending never attacking

    Just played a game where I had 12 ping all game,connection warning the whole game between orange and red,couldn't switch players,passes going wherever they want and all shots hitting the post. Makes playing pointless when nothing goes in your favour.
