What's wrong with this gameplay?

Bobbles, deflections, button delay, bad timed auto tackles...what is this? Usually gold 2/1 but think I'm gonna get silver this week. So many 90th min winners, bs goals, 49 yard finnese goals etc. Only this week, never usually.

Anyone else suffering the bs this week?

    More people qualifying due to 16 attempts or whatever it was and Ben Davies reward, more people qualifying = more people playing = busier servers = heavier lag etc

    Gameplay on this game is so unpredictable. One day you could have amazing and smooth games, the next it's terrible.

    You'd think a company the size of EA could compensate for this.

    If only!

    I find playing at night is usually better

    They don't care about our experience as long as they make money. If FIFA points sales take a massive hit then they'd change but people still buy loads.

    I went through this yesterday, but today seems much better for me.

    Yep, same here pal. First time I’ve done WL in a while and it’s not going well. Only played it twice as I can’t be arsed to play 40 games. First attempt won 25 games. This time I’ve won 3 in 10. I’ve not played anyone who I’ve thought, yeah he’s a good player. All goals I’ve conceded have been long distance finesse shots.

    Yeah, everyone else says don’t play on a Friday. But I don’t have a choice because I’m busy on the other days

    There's always 16 attempts to qualify.

    I’m guessing he means there was more of an incentive to play the knockout tournament because of the Ben Davies reward which means more players would end up qualifying due to more people trying the tournament.

    It’s usually 8 attempts from when I’ve done DKT

    Yesterday I had 3 wins and 7 losses

    Today I've had 6 wins and 1 loss.

    Of course it could be down to a whole bunch of things, but the game just feels completely different from one day to the next.

    Same for me. I had 9 wins in 40wl game with an 8mil team. I just quit whenever players don’t respond anymore due to gameplay or lag. Think I quit over 25 games as well as God teams pause switch formation idiots. It doesn’t bother me anymore as I can win DKT any time and in div one now. So just playing for fun.

    Yep, it's awful, I've given up. Input delay, fake auto lunges, ridiculously slow passes, players making weird little runs for no reason. Na, I'm done.

    @ASlowPotato - your name is exactly how I’d describe EA servers.

    This basically describes my gameplay. I have possibly one the best teams possible and it feels awful.

    I just build a low rated bronze team and nothing changed. I lose 9-8, impossible to defend due to the lunges and delay. I've gradually improved in WL over past few months but this weekend has made me not want to play again.

    I've lost 10 in a row today, mostly due to button delay and me just hitting that middle button in frustration. After getting gold 1 two weeks in a row (amazing for me, usually gold 3/2) it's just not worth trying. I was looking forward to good monthlies pack for first time since FIFA 17 but no dice I guess. I'll stick to trading.

    If i could i'd play tonight but i'm up early in the morning and out most of the day so today was my day to try get something.

    But WL Just isn't for me.. Game mode feels rushed and not fun + same ol' crap, Delay, instant pause, PTB, High Pressure

    I'm a Div 1 player( which i can play at my leisure 1 or 2 games aday after work) but I just can't cut it in WL.

    Yeah, it sure is. 8 on Monday and Tuesday, and 8 more on Wednesday and Thursday.
