    Not sure if the deadline will change .. if so, it would be Sunday 8Am instead of Saturday 8AM I would think.

    Organise your life around a video game? Think your priorities are skewed

    I have a life next to FIFA. But if somebody has made it his/her priority to play WL and has made an accordingly plan around it. Is it really something you should call somebody out for? I have a very busy life with kids and a wife, and I can’t play fifa unless I plan it. So yeah in someway I organise my life around video games, because it’s my way to blow of steam.

    Refund the points? What if I was already was capped at 2000 points again? (Yes I play far too much)

    Same. Now we will be back down to 0? I like to keep one 2000 spare so I can skip a weekend and still register for the next one without grinding rivals again.

    Everyone is different.

    I play FIFA when I have time, not make time to play FIFA and certainly not rearrange work to play.

    Shouldn't have called him out i guess, each to their own.

    They said they will add on 24 hours and refund the 2,000 points

    Not ideal but it's hardly end of the world stuff

    I've already got my next 2000 points from rivals after entering this weekend :D

    Idiots. Just keep spending fifa points on these amateurs. Well worth the money. Friday and Saterday are my only free days. From Sunday on I have to work! Will play to Gold 3 max and stop because I dont have all the time of the world.

    Or just don't play.

    The game is made by "idiots" and "amateurs" and you're wasting your apparent one piece of free time on playing 14 games (minimum) of the product that they make and...for what? A couple of packs? A good helping of Cragno and Javi Martinez or an EFL Championship IF that won't get into your team?

    People. If you don't have time to play, just don't play.

    You are NOT going to fall behind the pOwEr cUrVe because you don't play one weekend league.

    You are NOT going to miss out on a superstar player just because you don't play one weekend league.

    You're getting upset because you're not going to get a chance to spend 10 hours playing in order to hopefully, maybe, possibly win the outside chance of getting a usable player or a bit of SBC fodder.

    The "I have to play in case I miss out" is the second biggest lie EA sells. It falls right below "I have to buy FIFA Points to get a good team" in the list.

    You dont get my message do you? Indeed, if I dont have time I wont play this broken game. Thats why I am aiming for max 14 wins. Is it that hard for you to understand? If EA didn't mess up like they always do I would have enough time for 30 games. Yet somehow these clowns are smart enough to fool people to get 1.5 billion dollar, make mistake after mistake and get away with it because people like you are fine with it and even defend them.

    Im sorry, but if you dislike everything so much, why are you buying the game?
    if you're buying, you're part of the so called problem yourself.

    So people, probably aged 15 and at school, can't understand that for some people it does matter a lot, this Friday off ? When you have a family, as is my case, playing on Friday afternoon for instance is much, much easier than during the week-ends, where we are busy and, when not, have the kids around.

    It has nothing to do with organizing your life over a game, it just means that we wont be able to get more than say 15 games in a WL which just plain sucks. If you don't understand that, let's speak about it again in 15 years when you'll have two babies to take care of while still enjoying playing Fifa. I heard Fifa 36 will be excellent, too.

    Because I love football and like to build a good team, thats the only reason. And thats a terrible comparision. I only paid 55 euro, I wont pay a penny more. If all people were like me to spend max 55 euro and 0 fifapoints it would be a disaster for EA.

    Mate, of course it is annoying. Noone will say it is not, but it is also something that can happen unfortunately.
    It has everything to do with organizing your life over a video game though, but just a small part.
    And again, if you feel it's good and you like it, why do you care how others feel about it?

    Are you a EA employee?! "It can happen". 95 mistakes on FIFA 20. And the game is 1 week out and we already have a new mistake. Can that also happen? 95 mistakes on fifa 20+ 1 already now? How much does EA pay you?

    Yes, I get paid a lot by EA, every month, to tell people on a forum that mistakes happen.
    It's a nice job!

    I guess I do not care as much about a video game as you do.
    Sue me.

    it's called (in good Dutch) 'relativeren' . You should try it.

    And dont act like your life depends on it. It does not. And if it does, then I can understand why your reacting like this. In that case,I appologize.

    This is probably why they’ve had to delay.

    These people that played are likely people that are working for EA and were testing the system and servers.
    They found out something is broken and not working.

    Likely there is a No-loss glitch or something like that going on - I hear there is one at the moment on Xbox going around for example where you can even freeze the game of your opponent.
    Or maybe there are a lot of disconnects from the Weekend League servers.

    Whatever it is at least they probably found at least one problem and needed a day more to fix it.

    Anyone who plays the weekend league is arranging their day around Fifa.

    To successfully manage all those games in a weekend is mental. I done this during lockdown and it takes up some amount of time.
