Just read on Sport1, a famous German online sports mag, that pro player Mo_Aubameyang was asked to comment on the state of Fifa. He stated that he no longer played fifa 18 during the week because the game was „no fun“, that it was sluggish and that too many things happened „beyond the player‘s control“. Interesting read...

    I just find it crazy that there are actually 'Pro' fifa players, like that is their actual job, so when they're through with this and they go for their next job their CV says they've been playing Fifa for the last 3 years lol

    One thing he mentioned was that it was - for whatever reason - extremely hard to defend a lead, that „things change“ once you’re ahead...

    Does he play on PlayStation?

    If so I definitely played and lost 2-1 to him in WL earlier this year, I remember the Mo_Aubamayeng name. He was really good

    agreed

    Ive actually been playing seasons mid week instead of SB as SB is just mind numbing

    Ive gone from Div 10 to Div 5 without losing a game, but its insane watching what goes on, most games I completely tear the other team a new one, usually end the game with 8 x more shots then goals, yet you bet your bottom dollar their single shot from a CB 60 yards out will beat my DDG

    The skill gap is very small actually. I wish EA have some sort of player lvl like it was in Metal Gear Online for PS3. That system is better than this Division thing.

    The pros are getting beaten by no names, the game has changed folks.. when a 16 year old no name walks in and spanks the “pros” you know these pros have had it far too good for far too long.. if there was a better matching system whereby pros cannot cherry pick i guarantee they wouldnt be qualifying for the next event

    Ahm he got spanked bc they played the final on xbox twice. All pros knew he was done for, first game ended with a 2 points difference, but psn was down so they playrf again om xbox.

    I think the term pro is used too loosely nowadays. Dhtekkz is a pro player qualifiying with an average squad and winning it.

    Most of the people that qualified are pay2winners who spend mad money coupled with favourable matchmaking system that keeps the "pro" player status quo intact.

    Surely a "pro" (professional) is someone who earns money from playing the game. One assumes someone is prepared to pay them money as they are very good at the game (whatever that entails). Sure, there will others, equally good, who want to follow a different path in life to earn their crust and who are not pros but I think you can be pretty certain those who are being paid to play are some of the best out there.

    Think about how many dhtekkz are out there in the world but cnt compete against the toty cr7a and gullits. I wouldnt be suprised if huge gorilla sepnt anywhere between 5-10k on fifa 18 whilst people like nep have spent 15k so far.
