    People that can afford it spent so much money on useless stuff, Don’t have such a freak out about not donating the money etc ... I also spent about 1500 Euro in Fifa 19 so far , but I am an adult and have the money and instead of going in fancy restaurants with other adults ad spending hundreds on ridiculous meals and drinks just to show what a loaded king you are I also rather spent money on fifa points or other things + I also donate money for charity.
    BUT ! Had exactly the same experience as the OP ! In the terms of wins , all those icons are useless!!! Always lost against those 83 rated teams , barelay against the High rated teams ... then I sold my whole team and built a new one with the likes of Jesus, Goretzka , Tolisso etc ... And believe it or not , I won more games , and the ones that I lost were deserved much more often , nearly no games anymore , with 20:1 chances 0:1 result ...

    100 % agree!!! Would‘t have a problem with spending the money .... but getting this gameplay for the money is a big big dissapointment!

    Exactly, I guess FIFA is the first game ever on this planet that once your spend money your gameplay is becoming even more difficult. [/D

    Do angry people maybe tend to spent more money ? I don‘t know ... but I am sure there are studies about that ;)

    As a gold 1 WL player, everytime I met a 83 gold sqd in DR, the game experience is so HORRIBLE.

    One game after my Messi hit the post (of course) then my 83 opponent got a STRANGE penalty (he pushed my player down then his player fall so he won the penalty). He used his GK to score the penalty and started to waste time from then on. I swore to god I did everything I could to with the possession back but it is just impossible.

    What makes things worse is every time you encounter this kind of scenario, your opponent will of course sent you 100 messages to mock you after the game.

    This week I started to play with my friend's 83 sqd and the game experience is much much much better.

    Now I felt I am such a fool that I have spent this 4K usd (and another 3k in FIFA17 and another 4K in FIFA 18). This game is the what you actually got a worse game experience after you spend the money.

    wow.. you must me living the life..4k, would have bought you lots or air miles, food, 5 ps4s/xbox1.. open a 5 k certificate of deposit to double your money...but no, you chose to sign up with the Credit Card FC , and now you've sort a transfer to the whinny boy FC..

    why spend so much, you wanted the best players, now you got the best cards and you still aren't satisfied... guess what, the more you spend, the more your players start playing like trash..I hope you spend more .. also in about 8 months or more FIFA 20 will be out..please try and buy more FIFA points.. since you enjoy opening packs .. money is nothing and it is meant to be spent.. In a few days another promo will be out, i hope you re-sign with the Credit Card FC :)

    In every single thread where anyone is confessing, that he's spending money your answers are sarcastic and full of malicious joy.

    You're right, that spending money on this game is absolutely stupid, but do you think inappropriate sarcasm helps anyone out, who probably has addiction problems?

    Andy is closing these kind of threads, because sooner or later everyone's getting nasty and toxic.

    I feel sorry for the OP, and i think that Games like FIFA are designed to cause addiction, but nobody's really aware of it's dependence potential as it is gambling and not declared as such. And if someone shows dependency signs, the community has nothing better to do than being sarcastic?

    I mean, what's actually wrong with the people today?

    Thanks for the support. First of all, I played soccer since I was very young and I became a FIFA fun from very young age. For me I don't think addiction is an issue since I am spending money and game time within a reasonable limit. (I am Business Consultant so I travel and work at client's site very often, most of my FIFA time are weekend mornings and nights)

    Secondly, I believe there are lots of people who do have addiction issues (worse for children) and I hope the community could actually do something about it. I will definitely support this kind of efforts.

    This person is an adult who is fully cognizant of the decisions they are making, however short sighted they may be. No government regulation is needed for this type of behavior. This person would have the same problems if they were obsessed with Pokemon or trading cards and all they had to do to buy them was sit on his couch and click two buttons. This person has clearly learned their lesson, and their life will be better from now on. Some people learn the hard way. Id say over the past decade I have spent 2-3k on FUT. Only when I moved out and began to live on my own, away from mom and dad's credit card, did I realize that I was being too foolish with my cash by spending it on a virtual game. Its a new learning curve for some people, and Im glad OP has realized that they can spend their money better.

    Never too late to come to your senses I guess. Stop spending FP if you want the gameplay to be better. Until then you have no right to complain about anything IMO.

    Part of the fun with RTG accounts though isnt just how bad or good my rivals score is, or even how good i do in champs. its that theres always a player your chasing after. a reason to trade, invest ect... it really gives you a hidden challenge in the game most ppl dont realize because they spend money on the game. When you finally get that player, the relief you feel is alot different than just loading up the CC and gettin it day one... Given, you dont get to play with the player as long if you got it day one, every game you do play with it will be magical!

    so the amount is not the issue, its the value you got from it. Thats a very different complaint. I agree EA does not offer value for money

    The moment people claim an 83 rated squad plays better than a multi million coin squad I just can not take them seriously anymore. Those people haven't got a clue WTF their talking about. :s

    And this is why EA's loot box system has to end!! EA, can't you see what you are doing and what havok your product is causing? You have a moral obligation to be a productive member of society and not to exploit your user base - even competitive companies in a capitalist system need to realise that!

    There are some people, quite a few actually who don't buy packs for the gambling aspect. They buy them because they want the best cards in the game. Because they have only a few hours a week available and actually want to enjoy those hours not grind. And no, RTG are not the solution since that will make you trade-in your time instead of your money.

    Players purchased insane amount of packs to form a 90+ rated icons squad, then they should perform as we paid (or say as ratings displayed in card). We are tired of watching them making silly mistakes or being bullied by 83 golds.

    I noticed something about this back in Dec, having a tough time with my 87 squad and falling down to div 6 and facing a bunch of 81-82 squads and still losing, brushed off my old 83 squad and the game felt better again. It's as if the game is doing this on purpose.

    Dude, we are not saying 83 rated squad is constantly better than multi million coin squad. But the fact is 83 rated squad have 20-30% of time can actually beat mulit million coin squad under EA's world (consider the 2 players are in the same level).

    But this kind of scenario can never happen in real world. A FIFA world rank 100 national team (like 83 rated sqd) can never or have just 1% chance to beat those top 10 teams (like multi million coins squad).

    The odd of those kind of weird matches or we call "miracles" sometimes just happen way tooooo often in EA's world

    @ATERWH talk to @deang07 I saved him from fp life and he has packed toty Neymar and R94 in the last five days. Good things will happen, stay strong. This game is designed to make you spend.
  • Start play fullmanuals only game where the gameis not simulated, 1st it is hard to learn full manual but you learn it actually quite quick , you spend money to comuter ai simulated game ? start play h2h seasons with fullmanual controlls and after few games you realize that you love this game with spending max the price of the game. Still good luck for you and if you have good income it is wrong that ppl here is trolling you. after all our own lifes is our own lifes. But anyways cheer up for you and i hope you try the REAL fifa and start to play only fullmanual games. All good for you bro.

    FUT ruins the game. They need to either make it easier to get players so you can be on a level playing field or scrap it completely. Most icons and players that cast in the millioms are just not obtainable for the casual gamer. Not to mention people getting roped into buying **** packs without guarantees of decent players. Daylight robbery.

    Then theres the unbalanced gameplay... the same team can play completely different from one game to the next whether you squad as 100 fitness or not. Terrible game and this is the last post on here for me as the game has been traded in. Absolutely terrible. First Fifa in years and most definitely the last. Have fun tearing your hair out playing this game lol over and out.

    I’m not going to comment on OP’s spending. Maybe he has 20 million dollars. I don’t know. But this is the only game I’ve ever played where spending money or not spending and building a great team actually works against you. I have an excellent team. And it’s amazing how fast and responsive my players are when I play a god squad and how slow and unresponsive they are against 83 rated teams. This is the reason people bronze bench. It has absolutely nothing to do with matchmaking. As anyone that has a great team would rather face another great team than a team of 83 rated golds.

    Definitely better than spending it on worthless packs.

    It’s never nice to read these threads. This 100% needs to be regulated. They prey on people that show symptoms of addiction. That’s the reason why they don’t need to fix the gameplay, people are addicted to the thrill of opening packs regardless.

    I don’t think it should be regulated at all. I love gambling in real life. If I win great, if I lose, so be it, at least I’ve had a bit of fun along the way.

    Anyone that is willing to drop 4K (assuming op wasn’t exaggerating) and yet continues to moan about the game doesn’t deserve any sympathy from us. Surely op would have realised this after spending £500....£1,000.....£2,000 etc.
