Next Fifa, EA should require a speed test before playing

If your internet isnt up to a certain speed then you cant play fifa online. Because so many people play with adsl1 and 2 and even use their mobile phone to hotspot and it slows your opponent down and gives them worse speed.

I have 100mb download connection and 40mb upload hard wired to my ps4 and get button delay every single game. So i decided to do a mobile hotspot and i get hardly any and i get messages from my opponents saying they lagged bad.

Its really unfair and EA really need to fix the way players connect to eachother next fifa.

    Yeah i know, its crap hey. But EA should think of a internet speed that their game will be playable at with no delay and use that as a guide, so if you dont have that speed, you cant play online or at least Futchamps.

    We need one good mode in Ultimate team where everyone can play evenly with no assistance at all, just based on skill.

    Great idea. If FIFA takes itself serious they would do this.

    Your 100/40mbps doesnt mean ❤️❤️❤️❤️ if your ping is high.

    I believe the internet has no bearing and I believe the servers are generally fine. It has been said by people in the know that delay and sluggishness is actually built into the game purposely. People blame the servers because it’s logical. But EA have coded this in the game.

    This would be absolutely useless unless they update or replace the servers.

    The delay isn't caused by our connection it's the servers we are connecting to that's the problem.

    That's the problem though I want to "just play" but the game is unplayable.

    I assume you don’t lag, and feed off the ones who unfortunately do 😂

    Last week I played some games on the last WL hour. 6am UK. The gameplay was lighting fast. Zero delay.

    Absolutely nothing to do with internet speed, its the server stop giving EA a get out clause

    The people "in the know" in this case are very much not in the know at all, given that they're spouting utter garbage.

    A speed test would prove what exactly? Speed means almost nothing in gaming.

    Well you tell me how someone with 100mb download and 40mb upload that is hard wired straight to their ps4 but gets a 2sec button delay and his opponent has adsl and using wifi gets none and we live about 20kms away from eachother ?

    To me it seems like the player with the worse internet gets better speed some how.

    If it was JUST the servers and nothing to do with the way EA connect 2 people in a game then everyone in Australia would get this button delay and they dont.

    Again, upload and download mean very little with gaming, don't know why you keep mentioning it. There are many reasons that this could happen and it's impossible for me to give the answer you are looking for, it could be caused be lag compensation, jitter etc etc.

    Just played 3 rivals games in a row where my players were running in slow motion, and I was getting ping ponged for fun

    Surely this is a good enough connection to have a lag free game ? Or am I being punished for having the better connection

    They really should've some sort of connection restrictions in a competitive game. You're banned from a competitive season in Overwatch for too many disconnects from their server. They give you a few warnings, tell you to improve your connection before banning you from competitive play.

    Well i dont know whzt else to change or say either except it cant be my end if i dont get it in any other online game i play. I play Battlefield and fortnite and get under 20ms ping and in fifa i always get a 5 green bar connection and when i message my opponents they always have worse internet then me.

    The only other time i lag is if i play on a server in the US or UK, maybe EA just needs better servers and need a certain speed requirement so its fair for all players specially futchamps. Div rivals i dont care.
