This is the only video game I have ever played where the skill gap is so none existent that bad players are rewarded.
Half the people I play against are so clueless on defence, but it helps them because the A.I. Just bails them out constantly, while manual defending will just see the ball ricochet back to your opponent,
This is just pure trash, it’s worse than ever. This is the first week all year that I’m not even going to get 8 wins in rivals because I’m just sick of playing against players who are terrible at the game but the A.I. does everything for them.
I have just had enough.
So I’m a pro, as in all honesty I have no clue how to defend 🤣🤣🤣
Honestly, it sounds like sacking this game is the best thing you could do. You're miserable playing it and they'll never fix the things that you complain about. For your own mental well-being, all I can say is to find another game. This isn't meant as a 'git gud' type of post btw. Too many people stay playing this when they're not happy and it just becomes a vicious circle.
Sounds like we are having an AA meeting lol
I started FUT last year and am a much better player than I used to be. Last year, I was occasionally beating my opponent whilst having a lower xG. Now, tooling around currently in D5 (I've been D1, but I RQ when irritated by an opponent so promotion is tricky due to all the kick off goal attempts), pretty much every full game that I play I "win" on xG but don't always win the actual game. Last night I lost 2-1 with xG of 0.3-4.2 and drew 1-1 despite 11 shots on target to 4.
So yes, the AI protects the weaker players, but the bottom line is to get good. When I get smacked like a little ❤️❤️❤️❤️ in WL by a vastly superior opponent, which happens every WL without fail, I have serious doubts that it's his AI.
Also, the AI should protect the weaker players as EA rightly wants to encourage them to get into the game as opposed to being destroyed and having no chance.
Lol it does but no I don’t mean to be rude. But there clearly is a skill gap. How big or not is irrelevant, people are in higher divs and get 19-0 16-0 etc for a reason each week. It’s not random they are not picked. There is handholding in this game. But still does not mean there is no skill gap. Learning what works and what doesn’t and how to win regular is a skill.
I also agree with Bob if the game stresses you out try and play a little less or find some fun in it. Accept the flaws.
Definitely and fully agree. But most players are stuck with a mindset where they should win almost if not all games because they do everything right. If you struggle breaking down a defence then your opponent will too, unless he's doing something that you arent doing.
There is definitely a skillgap and the higher you climb the harder it gets to break through. And I personally believe everyone has a physical/mental limitation aswell no matter how hard you try, practise or watch others play.
Maybe you are not bad enough to be good at the game
How do you know that you’re not just amazing and getting punished for it?
That’s easy to say and harder to do when you’ve spent months dedicating yourself to building a team.
If something doesn't make you happy then you should cut it lose, no matter how much money/time/effort you poured into it
I know I’m not amazing lol. Even a one handed blind granny could beat me on a good day.
😂 I like that idea
Yeah agree. See now I think what sets good players apart is the defending, you’ll notice in WL loss can dribble very well but stop that and get at them and you find the drag players out or don’t read passes etc. the higher up you go the tighter the games get then it’s on decision making and taking and creating your chances as there may only be 4 shots a game coming your way.
Oh 100 percent it’s a mind thing too. The happier and less tired you are the better you play. I find anyway I’m old now. WL the best day gives me a headache lol.
True, but if it’s misery to play, it’s best to just jack it in. Or at least trade for a bit and wait for the next patch. It might favour you a bit more than this one.
I ff almost every game lol
westlers tinned burgers fuel any weekend league
So I need to get worse to get better results, I like this theory, although the only flaw I see is I’m not sure I can be any worse.
Maybe if I play an all bronze team my results will improve as the AI will make them all gods.
Haven’t had one of those for about 30 years and they were rotten then.
I heard you can drink the gravy straight from the can for some extra energy
This looks like an heart attack in a can
