Nothing more to be said really. Every match is unplayable at the moment.

    It’s especially bad today. Friendlies are usually unplayable at the best of times but I can’t do anything today.
    Even Rivals is bad today, and thats usually ok.

    The worse part of input lag is when you pass but the player does a weak pass like he’s facing in the wrong direction

    Truly terrible recently, animations taking ages after button press and it just feels like a battle to control players at all.

    You see a clean pass, you press the button, and the animation takes so long that an opposition player runs up and blocks it and it bounces forward to a striker who scores. Ring any bells?

    You're lucky you're getting the animation. I was pressing pass and nothing was happening.

    Actually this is the worst I have ever known it.

    The game is terribly broken online.

    I mostly play head to head Seasons and the game just doesn't have a clue. UK based and constant games against players in US and Mexico. This is the worst I have ever known it.

    Online as a whole is just broken. Don't get me wrong I get some smooth games here and there but never known it this bad.

    @EA_Roger - EA this is seriously broken across all online game modes.

    Yes, I forgot about that one.
    You press the A button to pass and nothing happens even when nobody is near your player. I thought the problem with with my elderly Xbox controller so I bought a new one and it was exactly the same!
    Anyone know if this happens on PlayStation too, or is it just Xbox?

    I had some joy late last night and finished the Fellaini objective.
    But just now played a couple of games and it’s unplayable again.

    For once I just found myself on the other side! Played a game of Rivals and totally dominated my opponent. I know it was all down to the one-sided lag and I felt sorry for my opponent so didn’t celebrate any goals.

    I like this game better than last years but the delay I have in div 1 rivals right now is the worst I have ever seen. It takes a lot to say that with the garbage that EA have put out the past 5 years but at this moment in time, I have never seen the most unexplainable crap as I have for the past two weeks. You can’t play a game, much less enjoy it, when nothing you press/move/command does what it is intended. When my opps dembele is making amazing tackles and winning headers over VVD , the jig is up.

    That must be a joke.. if a game is broken like this one is, it needs to get fixed. Of course someone can adjust to it being broken better than someone else, but it has nothing to do with the way this game is played for example offline, which mode again is not broken. Playing online should not be impossible without having to adapt to unplayable circumstances. Imagine forcing real life soccer teams to play in a swamp. It would not be called soccer anymore, it would be called swampball or something like that. A different game, not the one the players signed up for.

    Played early this morning on old gen. Games ran really well, responsive players, felt in control. Came back earlier hoping it would be the same……nope. Back to players turning like battleships, misplaced and short passes about 5 seconds after the button has been hit, completely random player switching and impossible to tackle. Why EA why? Each and every player has paid a minimum of about 65 quid to play this edition and we shouldn’t be restricted to certain times of the day to be able to play without being inhibited by lag issues caused by the EA servers. Please please please address this or at least give us some acknowledgment or explanation!

    That’s what’s so frustrating,they never explain anything,yet, before release the devs are everywhere,but once released they all vanish…..with all their cash!!!!

    Call them and tell them my connection is fine and my download speeds are more than capable of dealing with online gaming? Yeah cheers EA 🤣
