Buckle up, this is gonna be a long one.

I'm 44-12 in Draft atm, 3 losses in a row tonight.

I usually have 0 issue getting to at least the 3rd round or even winning the draft, now I read the changelog for the patch and do I think it's changed the core game? no. GK's however at least in recent experience are god awful, or at least mine seem to be. I wasn't outplayed in any of those 3 losses either which I guess is the somewhat frustrating part of it but all 3 were against <90 chem Draft squads that weren't that strong, of course the no chem IF Ronaldo striker was prevalent but other than that, nothing special.

Either I just played 3 of the worlds greatest FIFA players or something is different. I don't usually have issues with defending in any capacity whether it be LB + Y's, LT + RT, skill moves, etc but man tonight it's been all over the place and it seems as though my opponents just cannot put a foot wrong no matter what. High pressure gods, skill move maestros and clinical finishers. I don't get it.

Game 1 - 4-3
Game 2 - 2-1
Game 3 - 3-1

My drafts for once weren't even that bad, now I completely understand the whole element where you are going to play better players in draft, I welcome that. The "betting on your own skill" part is what makes it such an enjoyable game mode, but like I mentioned, I wasn't outplayed overall in those three games hence why i'm a little confused.

I dunno, maybe the pro players are out tonight and i'm just having an off session or maybe there's other factors at play. Not gonna get mad over it or anything.

Can't be mad today anyway. #Kloppmas

    meh you are not missing much. Just won my 2nd draft of the day and got like 15k back again, Mertesacker was my best player. Go figure.

    I tend to have "easier" games during this time of the night too against North/South americans.

    Putting it down to a bad run.

    Yeah Draft has got a lot harder because the more you win it the better players you play. Also always avoid new created accounts it's usually sweaty dudes with nothing to lose.

    Don't know why I kept going.

    47-15 now.

    More and more "occurances" that are completely out of my own control. Weather it be my own AI that i'm not controlling deciding to slide tackle in the box on it's own or my GK deciding he doesn't feel like using his hands anymore.

    Joke.

    Yeah I know what you mean I gave up on draft now. 3 times I didn't even get to the semis in a row last night. It's not worth the FP unless you get to the finals.

    I genuinely don't remember the last time I was beaten in draft specifically by someone who was actually better at the game, instead of someone getting a helping hand along the way.

    Just winning Division 7 undefeated . Seasons seems breeze compared to Draft for me. Not because of skills because I feel people in seasons play more realistic than draft noobs. 3 chem Ronaldo and Messi run wild and all the while you can't finish a goal to save your life.

    I noticed the goalkeepers from short range now are terrible, I had a game last night where Bravo was basically invisible.

    Honestly the worst GK I've ever used so far, one of the goals was from a cross on the HWL. Header from outside the box and it literally went through his hands, I couldnt believe it.

    However having IF Fahrmann, is a different story he's bloody fantastic.

    Played four draft games tonight. Won one and lost three. Across all four games, I conceded a combined 15 goals, with my goalies making a similarly combined total of 9 saves. Not even sure where those nine saves came from because in three of the four games my opponent scored every shot he had on goal. I don't remember how many saves the goalies in the other three games made, but in the last one, where I lost 5-4 :# , Begovic made 18 saves for him. Just incredible sometimes. Feel totally helpless at times.

    My own mini rant for the night...

    He ruined dortmund after a great start by letting the best players go and buying a load of rubbish players with the funds received

    They were also terrible at the back in the last two seasons

    Sounds like Rogers version 2

    I've had the same since yesterday. Getting battered all over the place. Players do incredible runs, Ronaldo skilling from his own half to my box and fires a rocket in the net.

    In the meantime I'm working really hard to get a goal with passing, finding the free player, keeping possession and all my opponent is doing is running wild with skillers and no matter what I do I can't get them of the ball. I use contain, I use standing tackle (and when I tackle them the ball bounces to another player of them), sliding tackle, I let the AI defend but they keep zig zagging through my entire defence.

    So frustrating and I might do something wrong? I'm not the best Fifa player but certainly not the worst IMO and I feel like I'm the worst EVER. I need to put in so much effort to get a goal and they seem to play so easily that I can't shed the feeling that they know something I do not.

    Any tips?
