All of it. Everything. Even the game itself. Even this thread. None of it's real. EA shut down in 2007. Everything beyond that point has been a fever dream. When will you wake up?

    He's just saying ultimate team ruined FIFA which is the sentiment of thousands of FIFA players. FIFA 08 was seriously so much better than this. It was when your opponent needed the same types of chances as you to score... not one artificially created chance by the game engine because it has to balance the gameplay out at some point. Why can't the game create one of these no matter what you press you score chances for the team dominating as well...it's mindboggling. Players begin to think they are delusionally clinical and good at FIFA scoring 2 in 3 shots when in reality it was much harder to miss than to make.

    Completely agree mate. 'Playing' in this game mode is merely an illusion.

    That makes like... No sense.

    EA made probably the best Fifa to date this year. It's he community that ruin the game.

    This is a fantastic point and at the core of me many peoples dissatisfaction. My theory is this . in every game there are 3 players - Player A , Player B and the AI.

    To win consistently you have to be better than the other 2. In most games the AI is the best player so he decides the result.

    This. This is what makes the game so frustrating and stressful.

    It makes perfect sense. it may have some of the best features- many of which are NOT gameplay related, bu the community does not make one GK make 15 saves or create the most ridiculous unmissable caches for one team or the other in the 45/90 min. Yes the community has issues, but whatever it is that cause player to perform so inconsistently is not good for the gamer. It may be good for the person making the game in the short term but her is the thing. EA are simply monetizing the licenses, They are profiting from the fans love f the game. The product they are giving us from a gameplay standpoint has not made the advances it should over the years. Almost all the focus has gone to monetizing football, not creating a better gameplay. I think they could have done both.

    I think this year is the tipping point. EA will lose a chunk of older generational players unless something changes.

    I'll be playing PES next year. It's high time to go back and give it a chance.

    Been blind sided by Fifa for years now and the reality is, it hasn't been good since 11 (FUT) unfortunately online competitive nature will always be more attractive than CPU.

    So FUT will remain the game to play for future titles.

    Change it EA.
