Not playing again until next patch

What started off as an edition of fifa with decent gameplay has steadily declined further and further.

I dont think you can fully attribute the problem to be delay anymore, I think the gameplay is inherently bad and getting worse. The latest patch has completely destroyed any form of enjoyable gameplay. Player switching on defending is a very gamebreaking problem currently.

I will try again next patch.

    I have a huge problem with dribbling. My players with 90+ dribbling feel stiff as hell. Maybe it's because of the mud gameplay. It's terrible.

    Agree. I packed 91 pele out of base icon SBC and he can just about dribble.

    I have average team, but left stick dribbling with Salah or Dybala for example is pure **** after patch. It is fifa 21 once again- Long ball, full sprint shoot park the bus. Build up play is not possible after patch, passing is nerfed. Game became unplayable. Idk if this is server failure or they changed something in wrong direction.

    Posted last night similar issues

    I'll give it one more patch but certainly not playing before next patch.

    Worst a FIFA has ever felt for me personally.
  • Just patch it back to release. It was perfect

    Maybe..

    I’ve tried to stay clear of the patch threads as I genuinely enjoying the game. The 2nd patch done very little to my game, so again I just ignored the complaints as I was really enjoying Fifa for the first time since 18..
    2nd half stutter was annoying but general gameplay was good (for me)

    But the 3rd patch is absolutely 100% interfered with my game. To the point it’s broken.. Not just delayed blah blah .. it’s broken my game. Animations…player movement… ball speeds.. my sprint button.. passing.. players intercepting the ball then move away from it…. Control of the ball is nonexistent…. Players ball teleporting through each other ..
    I have clips when I get time I’ll post them

    Since the last patch i've barely been able to play the game without a full 90mins of my players being stuck in the mud, every single game is an absolute grind and just so unfun, not sure what they done but my internet isn't even bad but almost every game is met by packet loss and the red square symbol at the top of the screen.

    Same here. First fifa game (skipped 21) i was really enjoying since 18 but now.....

    Since the last patch my players can't seem to do anything right. delayed passes, no control over the ball, not intercepting the ball, players being stuck in mud and many other things makes the game totally unplayable for me.

    I have ethernet connection into my PS5 so that shouldn't cause the problem.

    Can´t feel any difference whatsoever since latest patch. Always a mystery how every new patch changes the game completely for some people

    Gameplay has been rough for about 3 patches now. Dont think anyone has been praising previous patches.

    Latest one is different in the way that its provided a game-long delay, rather than the lag in 2nd half.

    Game releases: people say it's finally good

    After first patch, regardless of what it changed: people say the game is really bad

    After a few patches: people say this is the worst edition yet

    People keep playing until next edition where it repeat itself

    Honestly, if you keep buying the game knowing you will be in for a bad time... You kinda deserve it (almost lol)
  • Same complaints from me as every year.

    NERF AI DEFENDING.

    BUFF MANUAL DEFENDING OUTCOMES.

    that’s it. And your game isn’t rubbish.

    I will say it again delay seems to be internally nothing to do with connection…This year things become clearer because connection is always good but reaction time and stupid ai movement got worse..nothing to do with connection..It is how the game is made.

    Just played a couple of rivals amd the gameplay was awful. Took forever for my players to get to top speed. Forget normal passing. Its always underhit. To the point they pass it two yards and just stand there as the defender 8 yards away yoinks it away. Its a mess.

    The most obvious thing for me is when the opponent turns on constant pressure as your players just fall to bits. They suddenly can't control a pass, they start misplacing passes and they start turn like trucks. So delay is clearly just not your connection, there is something in the game engine causing it as well.

    Bug or by design? EA have studies showing that frustrated gamers are more prone to impulsive decisions. Just look at @David12344 swapping teams every few days. :smile:

    It's been like that for many versions of Fifa and I'm pretty sure it's the way they designed it. If I make a change to my tactics it should only affect how my players act and not affect my opponents players.

    People turn on pressure ...fine, it should not turn my players into bronze cards suddenly unable to run as they did 2 secs ago.

    Exactly, it´s just pathetic to see all these threads when gameplay remains the same for 99% of everyone playing but unfortunately this final 1% is the people spamming this forum

    This is what happens when people ❤️❤️❤️❤️ and moan at the start of the game every year.
    It was more or less perfect on release and now it's just a broken mess.
    I have personally stopped playing.

    Literally all they had to do at the start was tone down finesse shots outside the box, and nerf the gk's inside the box slightly but they've turned the game into Fifa 21 again

    Yep gameplay yet again rewards players that sit back and break with no stamina drain to penalise

    @RadioShaq no one asked for any patch , the game on release was close to being perfect and best in recent years , sure some complained about GKs being too strong and some said that the game is too slow for their playing style , however I don’t recall anyone asking for drastic change in the game as we are witnessing nowadays. I won’t be surprised if the majority of player base would like the game to go back to how it was upon release

    This is what annoys me the most, subtle improvements to things that required it, not bringing back skill moves to ridiculous levels and making GK's suck.

    Goalkeepers being bad is like a million times better than the other way round.

    The AI should not bail you out ever.

    And the game is largely exactly the same as on release.
