How many people over 30 have qualified for the weekend league?

13456
Just out of curiosity really. Was reading a post from someone earlier who's over 30 and is losing the will to play.. People say your reactions aren't comparable to someone of a younger age..

I'm 33 and managed to qualify (barely) last weekend and came out with 8 wins after 25 games. I was drained after that and decided to leave the rest.

Tried to qualify for this weekends last night but got beat in the final. It kinda sapped my energy for the game altogether and I couldn't bring myself to play after that.

How are the other oldies finding it?

    Am I allowed to answer with 29 ? :wink: Last weekend I did all 40 games in a row on Saturday and managed to win 29 out of it. Needless to say I slept endlessly after this. Managed to get 32 - 34 wins the weeks before after splitting my schedule.

    Qualified at first attempt yesterday morning. Although no chance I will play any more than 15-20 games.
    I'm 39.

    32 and I've done it. I honestly don't think reactions are a problem. The decline is very gradual. FIFA is as much about anticipation and situational knowledge as pure reflexes anyway.

    I'm way over 30 and got Gold 1 last weekend. Qualified all 3 weekends I tried to and won 40 of 64 games played over the month.

    Time is obviously a big issue since I only got 64 out of a possible 120 games played. Hopefully with the extension announced yesterday I can fit more games in.

    Over 30, it is a struggle but that is less to do with reactions and more to do with my desire to play football rather that professional sprint then dab simulator. This game is tuned for one gameplay method over any other. This is not complaint, it is just the way it is.

    I'm sure if I compromised every shred of integrity I had and played like douche bag with Musa et al rather than using players who I like IRL then it would be much easier.

    I'm over 30 and I've qualified, but I hated it. **** everywhere. I don't think it's about reactions, I doubt they decline in your 30s, in fact I think muscle memory would be stronger in your 30s. But I do think it's about maturity. Win or lose, I just want to have a good, fun game, for both me and my opponent. I don't celebrate, skip all replays and get on with the game. No unnecessary slide tackles, no time wasting. It's a video game, if I don't enjoy it, I won't play it. Kids just wanna be tools, just for the sake of being a tool when they're hidden with anonymity. They wouldn't carry on like that if I was in the same room as them.

    @scirocco727 mate, I've probably been playing video games since before you were even born.

    35, never qualified.

    It all seems a bit much anyway, I'd never be able to play the amount of games required for the big prizes. I have a couple of hours free on Saturday morning when my daughter is at her dance class, and maybe a few hours after dinner on a Sunday. My wife would cut off my best bits if I spent all weekend on the console.

    This is very true.

    I will always skip replays and don't time waste but idiots Dabbing, watching every second of replays and stalling absolutely boils my brain.

    I'd love an over 30's league where the BS is cut out.

    You skip replays? But how do you run back to the halfway line whilst sssshing? I'm 30 and qualified for 3 out the 4 weekends with Gold 2 every time.

    Qualified 2 out of three attempts and won five out of five matches over the weekend, I just don't have time to play many games. I'm 38.

    36 and qualified both times I've tried but only played five games one weekend and none the other.
    I feel like in general us over 30's maybe have less time to play the whole 40 games?
