    Anyone find that since this patch your players are very unresponsive? I am 14-3 but they just stand around not doing anything when you want them to close down the ball? The opposition seem to be the same I often can just walk through massive gaps.

    Think it’s the servers tbh. Gameplay was fine Friday and Saturday for me but yesterday I experienced what you are now.


    Same here. Played Friday and tried a few games sunday. It was so much worse. 4 matches, lost 3 of them. Loads of rng, bs and passes going all over the places

    I hate it that you are unable to switch players after a rebound

    I’d honestly take 50 games last year over the 30 this year and I’d still probably finish them quicker....
    Pace of the game :sleeping:

    I was saying that months ago and I still think it is true. 30 games this year would take more time than 40 last year, hence why people are still complaining we don't get enough time for WL. EA lowered it to 30 games to save us some time, but in reality gameplay causes it to take longer instead.

    Played 2 and gone off. Leaving it at 16....UFC and Fortnite Im actually enjoying at the moment, so not sure why I’m wasting my time tbh....

    I'm 14-6 atm... (Since changing camera angle & home picking I'm 8-1)

    Is it worth it to go for 17 wins for either rewards or the extra choice in picks??? Every game just is a mental drain, I have the time... but i'm just wondering if it's worth it compared to actually playing something I'll enjoy (and watching the West ham game).

    I only play to 17 for the extra pick

    Currently 12-7 Going to try to reach gold 2. What a struggle this weekend.

    Started Balanced like always, then changed to constant pressure a few games, then changed to drop back 1 depth and kept it there. Jesus Christ.

    20 height 20 zoom (few people mentioned it 3-4 pages ago), I'm not sure if it feels any different, possibly just means I see the runs a little more, but doesnt feel to much different to what I used anyway.

    The 30 do seem to take longer and are more of a grind than last year. I cant seem to play 2-3 games without taking a break, it is the most boring fifa ive played.

    Last year i would play between 30-40 on the sunday, didnt even bother me that much and seemed to go by quite fast.

    11-0, That's it for my last wl until they release a decent patch. Played 11 away games in a row, let the AI defend for me and scored a Header every game

    Usually 23-26 wins... ending on either 20 or 21 only second time all year playing full 30 I’m not at least elite 3. Had an absolutely shocking middle, and early start tbh. Patch had me initially (went straight in not thinking it was going to be that different) and had some bad luck go against me.. along with me getting irritated too many times😂

    Gave drop back a go for a couple games, just isn’t for me.. play so much better with the press on heavy touch that I won’t touch it again unless I’m trying to hold out on a win.

    Gone from beating pros to ending like that inside a week 🤦‍♂️, next week hopefully I can do 30 and get back to my usual finishes or higher.

    Onto next week

    You are an elite player dude even if one weekend you don’t hit it we all have off weekends. This year even elite is very very hard to attain. Over a 3:1 win loss for just elite 3.

    Finished top 100 and still don't have a clue what to do when I make it to the opponent's box :joy:

    I actually quite like it. My defenders actually have more of a use now rather than sitting off watching as someone smashes a timed finesse into the top corner

    Finishing up on 14-0 for this WL. Switched to 41212 (2) and enjoyed having more attacking options in and around the opponent’s box. Best/Ibra still a lot of fun.

    Finishing on 14-6, could've gone for 17 but i'm chilled & content tonight, I don't fancy that changing, might test one game to see if it's okay to play later but otherwise that's it this week, then won't be around the next 2 WLs.

    I'll watch the footy & catch up on some Tv instead.

    Feels like everyone i play against is doing that. First time passes all over the place.

    Yup. And it's ridiculous because if you're a manual defender and try to read a pass, by the time the pass is actually delivered, the ball is already going to be passed around where you are. It's very annoying for a manual defender.

    You have to time it literally PERFECTLY, otherwise the AI will help the pass.
