Squad Battles post patch

Anyone noticed it playing very differently? I used to win games on world class by big margins against the gold teams and on legendary against the weaker ones. Since the patch I still do occasionally but a lot of the games have been close to the point it feels like they want it to be a close score.

An example. I go up 3-0 and I’m cruising, then in the second half they’re super aggressive and I’m awful. Game ends up 3-3 and and I eventually win in extra time or lose in the last minute. That would happen maybe a couple of times a week before, but it’s happened in every one of the last 7 games bar one,recently.

    I’ve been playing on legendary since the start, but I’m getting annoyed by the AI’s 99 dribbling and ability to nullify my marking... and just dance their way in to the box.

    I'm not really struggling more after the patch, but I have had a couple of sequences where the AI flicks on a switch and really gets impossible to stop (legendary difficulty). I've conceded a few goals today I don't think I would have conceded pre-patch.

    It’s even more maddening when it’s a bronze player that has the ability to dribble like Neymar. I don’t have the patience to play any teams above 82 on legendary. Way too frustrating and I can’t stop them scoring, so I get stressed trying to just out score them.

    Except GK catching more saves, no differences imo

    Yeah, I’ve noticed that too. 1 minute patches where you just know they’re going to at least have a shot on goal.

    Gameplay on legendary has definitely changed. Try a counter attack and there will always be one defender way ahead of you and closer to their keeper...

    Ultimate has got a touch harder, but I feel like all they have done is made the lesser chem teams on legendary stronger.

    Overall there is a change but not much.

    Top 200 here btw

    Uhm, do the AI players on legendary get buffed to 99 rating? Or is it just the case on ultimate?

    My keeper hasn’t saved anything since the patch. AI seems to have no reference of time either. 5 mins of them dancing round in the corner for them to score in 90+5 even tho the added time was +1

    No but they are constantly doing skill moves such as ball roll its so freaking annoying every touch is a ball roll

    It’s easier than it was before the patch.

    When did you last play? Others in other threads are disagreeing. Everything seemed to change at 6pm last night

    The AI are still doing pinpoint bicycle kick passes! And the blatant fouls in the box are going unpunished even more in the AI favour. Yet my player will fart as the AI player runs past me with the ball and its a yellow!

    This was just in one game

    Still getting those S word moments when you know the AI is going to score, and does with a bronze player that suddenly gets possessed by the spirit of Pele and dribbles through your defence and lob passes a ball to a 5'4" vertically challenged player who makes a jump that an NBA player would be proud of.

    Just dreading what the next patch will turn the game into.

    I felt your pain for that first one. Jeez

    Was playing today and it feels like it’s gone back to normal now. Perhaps it’s just an odd game or patch of games that they decide to tamp it up?
