I Finally Retire from FUT

I've finally lost the will to play this game.

Every week now is getting more and more boring. Everyone seems to have the same team. It is instant pause, Son to ST, Lozano and Co (seemingly Bailey today) to wide CAMs, set them all to stay forward, then park the bus and hope to get a 1v1. Even when you win it just isn't enjoyable.

The game no longer has any diversity to it. I have played since the beginning and I miss B/S/G teams, the online tournaments where you could build a fun bronze or silver team and play other people who'd done the same. Where bronze and silver cards had value. The days of Maikon Leite, El Shaa and co.

5 games today and all of them had TOTS Son, TOTS Lozano and an instapause 4231 with Son ST and Lozano to wide CAM. I don't condone this, its boring as hell but that seems to be the winning formula. People can play as sweaty as they want, they purchased the game but it is this that has sucked the fun from the game. This win at all costs, abuse the mechanic mentality.

This isn't a 'OMG GIT GUD' situation. My last game I left whilst winning...it is just dead for me now. I just happened to realise mid-game how little enjoyment it has left.

On that note, I've got a bunch of steam credit to spend, so any suggestions on good games for PC I might not have seen?

EDIT: I meant to say, cue the sarcasm or endless wit of the regular forum dwellers.

    Agree with you pal. I stopped playing FUT Champs after December. The mode has become ridiculous and the not only that the lag and the 15 game win streak and then all of sudden your on 10 loss streak! 40 games and you’ll be against sane/Lozano/Salah/son for 40 games.

    I just stick to Online Seasons now and DKT for the tots rewards... I can’t wait for WC mode... the one in Fifa 14 was great!

    The game has been win at all costs for a few years now. WL exacerbated it all. People are scared to lose. Not sure why as it’s all pretty meaningless unless you are a regional level pro.

    I have up on H2H as well today. I thought I'd swap to H2H and still have fun. It's still woeful.

    FUT become boring, FUT wc will be exactly the same thing. Playing people with the same players and same formation, boring and dull.

    Totally agree, 4231 has killed the game for any kind of enjoyable gameplay.
    It's all control the player 10ft away from the ball and jockey.

    What? You'd think only you 4-1-2-1-2(2) guys get to party? Your reign is over. And most of us don't even need to pause at the start, you suckers :D

    Yep. I completed Marega challenge because i'm a porto fan but then realized it was all for nothing... I can't play two games in a row without asking myself why i still have it installed on my PS lol hands down, worst fut to date, rivaling with fut 16.

    This weekend was the closest I've come to finishing FUT champs and just playing a few games of divisions a week. It's not even a reaction to doing bad. 7 and 3 is my best ever start. I think last weekend I was 3-7 with the same team. It's become a chore to even play to 11 wins. I'll probably grind out those last 4 and see how I feel next weekend.

    Draft is just full of people leaving when they go 1-0 up, plus the rewards aren't great especially at this stage of the game.

    The people that win at all costs and aren’t pros are just people that have to find self esteem in something and fifa is where they go to get it.

    There's dozens of threads like this. Sadly theres 10x as many that post how they've just blew another £100 on fp.

    EA aren't going to change a thing. They're making more money off this ❤️❤️❤️❤️ than ever before.
