Game play has totally gone for me tonight. I haven’t been on for about 4 days, tonight it’s gone atrocious. Can’t pass, can’t shoot, players running in all different directions – having to constantly ‘fight’ the controls to get players to move, very delayed, juddery and jumping/freezing, even when the ball get’s kicked the screen isn’t panning quick enough to keep up with the action. The AI controls of my players are plain daft, it’s almost like they are playing in a different game, the players are colliding with each other, then persisting to fall over eachother again when one of them falls to the floor.
EA has seriously done something here. It’s almost like they’ve switched me “half” off their servers or something which is stopping synchronisation to my game.

The game changes so many times from super speed, to laggy, to laggy and slow, to juddery then back to super speed etc etc. This is ruining the game EA.

    These problems are littered over various forums, and it's a big issue - Hopefully EA will respond to all of their loyal customers and keep us updated.

    Agreed

    My hands hurt, felt like I was gonna crush the controller

    My last game, I somehow won 2-1 but it was doing all it could to let the oppo win - every ball I passed went straight to them, every clearance was instantly closed down and blocked. My players just would move or tackle and the screen was really really laggy.

    Turned it off to play a game of scrabble online to chill me out lol

    If im playing anyone decent at passing ive no chance i can read the play but my players are never getting there. Then when i get it if i dont ping pong it im closed down before my player can even get control of the ball. Its a joke using george best is like using mertesacker :)

    This is another thing. Knowing what your opponent is going to do, and not having the players react quick enough to do something about it :(

    Thanks for the feedback chaps, all these comments is what I'm seeing. A particular lol to zuparadox for his comments ha.

    Be good for EA to respond - this has fallen drastically the last few days and is effecting a lot of people from what I can see.

    Anyone know why it is laggy, is it being matched up with people too far away or does some how the connection , even though its peer to peer, still run through ea servers causing it to lag ?

    Yeah even though it's p2p, I think it still has got to go via EA somehow and somewhere along the line. All the issues that are happening I haven't changed a thing my end yet the game is pretty much un-playable. I've seen these problems over the years and I'm convinced 100% this is to do with EA now.

    It's probably due to EA using outdated matchmaking

    Yeh it's been here for a while now, several years. FIFA 16 seems to be very much more sporadic though than previous years - the change in gameplay from good to bad is quick, and the nature of issues are far more easy to see and feel now than before.

    I think the game uses the same netcode as mortal kombat x

    How many others are seeing this change in gameplay over the last couple of days?

    If you respond please say what country you are from, thanks a lot. Maybe this will help EA troubleshoot this issue.

    Maybe they figured out what has been causing it for years and are trying to fix it.



    Who am i kidding they probably forgot to oil the server this week.

    Thanks - I'm in the UK too. All my mates it has gone rubbish for as well (FUT).

    It is not a UK issue. I live on the east coast of USA and have had it for 4 years now. Weeks at a time all my games will be slow and unresponsvie. And then all of a sudden for a day, I will have butter smooth games and win div 1 easily. And then it comes back and I get relegated to div 3. Absolute joke from EA side.

    Thanks, yes it has been around for years - I've had it since about 2008-09 ish. It has improved sort of, also a ISP was partially to blame in the earlier years (although they say it's not them). Now this is down to EA, FIFA 16 I find is very very changeable for me i.e from good to bad game play, happens much more often now.

    Interesting to know it effects you guys over there too.

    Just after playing a match there now im away to be sick.
    Going to send EA a message that if i buy a new controller and that isnt the problem will they refund it. Something is dragging my players around the pitch.
  • JIO22

    Yes totally agree, I feel like you have to "fight" the controller to get your players to respond and move, especially in quick bursts.

    I'd be surprised if it's the controller, try a spare first - I've tried using a couple of different ones and no difference. I've spent many years battling these issues with all sorts of people from ISP's, BT and EA - EA need to step up now, I've got a lot of experience in this and EA can't ignore it no more.

    Well I spent the most part of last year complaining to them. Changed all my equipment, my isp to google fiber with 3ms ping and 1000mbps down and 800mbps up. Still had this issue. In the end, they gave me Star Wars Battlefront as compensation, which i sold and now I continue to bug them. So bad from their end

    This is the kind evidence EA need to see, now for one they can not blame your ISP or broadband connection - I've been there myself and changed ISP's in the past. EA need to solve this to repay all of their loyal and paying customers that they are making a lot of money out of these days.
