For me

Skill spammers
Dribbling on the edge of the box forever who then glitch through defenders
Players spamming long balls over the top to Ninja turtle mbappe
Time wasters who quit out at 0-0
Rubber banders
Passing around the back line

    So your opponents aren't allowed to do anything in your eyes?

    Yes play the game properly and in a sportsman like manner not be complete mechanic abuse sweats

    Only one main thing that does my head in is when you might be losing 3/4-0 to a better. Player and they are doing silly dance celebrations and just taking the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🤣🤣

    Yeah the way people play and the exploits annoy me but what can you do. I mean some people play to win and some play for fun (and to try and win). Those playing purely to win will obviously play every card in the trick. I will either play out these games (or rubber band like a rat) or quit and just go again.

    I dont recognize any rat players, I just try to win any match against any opponent until the very end and if they win they deserve it.

    Edit: Until the input lag ruins the game that is, then im out and nobody deserves any damn wins

    I haven’t had a proper game of football on this game for quite a while.
    I’ve never seen so many players skill spamming, spinning on the spot and attempting cut backs on every attack.

    Have some pride in your game!

    People that celibrate their goal as if they won the worldcup but immediatly slip your goals.

    Other then that its fine. But the above triggers me, not that I celibrate as 99% of the time I skip them but its the thought behind it that bothers me.

    No playstyle makes me think someone's a rat, they play how they want, up to me to try and beat them.

    Infact the only thing toxic about it is calling people rats.

    Hate the use of the word. Reminds me of playground bullies in the 80s.

    For me it’s those players who do nothing all game except run down the wing, down the by line and pass across goal for an attempted tap in. Morons

    I dont really consider anyone a rat player. I call PSG cards rats but the people who use them want to win, so there’s no blame there. The game is set up a certain way that wins are easier to come by if you play with rat cards and play what some call rat tactics and that’s EA’s fault, no one else’s. I play high line, possession tiki tala because I enjoy it more but I don’t blame others for playing 11 behind the ball counter stuff. It is frustrating and not necessarily enjoyable to play against but unfortunately ‘it’s in the game’. There are few to no drawbacks to playing that way unfortunately as the isn’t balanced.

    People who get away with fouling from behind in the box or who commit 4 tactical fouls as last man back and don’t even get yellows — actually is this is equally eas fault for creating a game that has no known rules, you just do what you can get away with unless the ref makes some random decision….

    Kick off abusers are slime in my book — it takes zero skill.

    Rat such a strong word for someone who wants to win, if they pay for the game then they can play anyway they like.

    I have a list.

    Drop back
    Kick off runners (sad attempt for cheap goal)


    Players that beat me.
    Players that make game hard for me to beat them
    Players that have better team than me
    Players with spurs kit or badge
    Players that use different colour lines
    Players that in anyway shape or form do something I don’t like.
    Players that use 4231
    Players that use 442.

    The bigger your rat list is the bigger the chance you will rage or not enjoy the game.

    Everything can be countered if you have a good connection. That's all I hope for.

    No skill mechanic abusers (e.g. corner glitches)
    Time wasters passing around the back

    Everything else is fair game IMO.

    The corner technique was easy to defend.

    It's also easy to execute. Doesn't make it any less ratty because its easy to defend - You can defend 10 corners but with CR7 and VVD all it just takes a bit of luck.

    None

    I despise the use of this word(even if I had used it in past) even for the worst of mechanic abusers

    It's their game,their team,their way of playing
