I’m currently sitting at 14-7. The absolute worst record I’ve ever had in any weekend league ever.
I finish with 27 wins when I have a great weekend league and will manage 23 on my worst weekend leagues.
I hate to be that guy blaming the game. But I’ve played probably over 100 weekend leagues over the years and have never even come close to this record I currently have.
The gameplay is out of this world bad. Button delay to the max, same as this time last year in fifa 20. You can’t turn, pass or do anything with fluidness or stability. I read 99% of my opponents passes and move my player to make the interception, and they either let the ball pass them when it’s a centimeter away from their foot, or slide out of the way because the game does not allow you to be fluid with a players motion. Even if you hold LT/LB to jockey and slow down they still go flying.
On offense I can’t do a thing besides run directly straight because if you try to slow down and change direction, your player falls all over himself like he’s a 50 overall rated bronze. Everyone turns and dribbles like they’re the MF’ing tin man.
And then on top of this horrendous, disgraceful gameplay, you have to deal with all these extremely toxic people who exploit the game. Running 532 with gold Varane, mendy, Gomez, Mbappe and Neymar with high press after losing possession on. It’s so boring. Same thing over and over again. And then they score and think they’re so good, celebrating and just being a jag off. Which I’m fine with the celebrating and what not, it’s part of the game whatever. It’s just extremely frustrating when you know you’re 100% the better player but just can’t play your game because of how terrible the gameplay is.
I’ve invested my own money, and a significant amount of time into the game in order to build my “Ultimate Team”. Finally acquire those top tiers players from TOTY or Prime Icons, and it literally just doesn’t even matter because EA make everyone feel and play the same with this gameplay. It’s so unbelievably frustrating. I felt this way the same time last year when the gameplay went to trash. Feel so ripped off and scammed by this company. You buy into the game at the beginning and then after all that invested time, EA flip a switch and you get a completely different game that is just not playable.
I want to just stop playing but I’ve already put so much time into it, it feels like the biggest waste. And FIFA is legit the only game I play, and football is my passion. It just sucks so bad.
If you made it this far, thank you. End rant.
It's shocking, I've given up now tbh because it's getting worse every week.
Lol yeah that’s why it’s so annoying. The whole point is build the best team you can. And it doesn’t matter now. I obviously want to win but I want to build a team with my favorite players and have fun while I play. Just using gold cards that were out at the beginning of the game is so boring and makes no sense at all. The entire game is bass ackwards
Meanwhile, you’re working harder than a coal miner in the 80s with creative passing to find a slither of a chance because his backline feels insurmountable?
Used to be an E2+ player and now barely scrape E3/G1. Maybe I’m just getting too old for this stuff.
